GPS on the Bold

Another question about the Bold through AT&T... does the GPS functionality require paying AT&T extra? If so, can you use a third party app instead for free?

Thanks again

Re: GPS on the Bold

No, GPS service on ATT is free... the GPS will locate you with your lat/long for free. Using BBMaps, Google Maps, AmazeGPS, Nav4All and other applications are free.

 

You will pay for the BEST of the mapping applications, like TeleNav and Garmin. I use the ATT Navigator program, which costs about $10/month, but is great and one of the best.

Thanks.  Will the free ones do the turn by turn directions, etc?  Or only locate your current position?

BBMaps and Google does not.

 

I think I recal that Amaze or Nav4All does give turn by turn directions, but NOT voice directions ... you will need to test and see.
