For years I've used WM phones with an external gps receiver (i.trek M series) and iGuidance software. It worked fantastic. Now I've been forced to switch to a BB Curve running on Verizon. I still have my i.trek M5 but don't know the best software to purchase. I tried nav4all and it simply didn't work (didn't find my paired gps for some reason). Tried to download a trial of Garmin and it won't support Verizon at all, even with an external receiver (or so the website claims). Looked at MapQuest Navigator trial download; same issue, it won't support Verizon. Looked at TelNav and they want $99 per year? They're crazy. GPS software will be commoditized soon and will wind up free in the very near future I believe. I'm not paying yearly for TelNav.
So experts, I'm looking for a recomendation based on your experiences. If iGuidance would just port their software over for BB, this would be a done deal!!!
Thanks for any help.

I don't know what "bells and whistles" you are looking for but I am using the BB maps application and it works great. It is not voice prompted turn by turn directions but man it has a lot of good services. I also have loaded GPS Snitch and use them in unisom to be able to map friends locations in comparision to mine. They are both great but better together.
