There is no cost to use Blackberry Maps, or Google Maps (if you choose to install it).
I believe if you wish to have voice communications (Turn left at ___, etc), then you will have to subscribe to some kind of Navigation plan (like TeleNav I believe).
Both Blackberry Maps and Google Maps will work with the built in GPS, and will show your location/map directions for you. Blackberry Maps will even track you as you move - just no voice directions.

Agreed--and Google Maps is currently the better of the two, I think, with street views and walking directions as well as driving.
