    It is still a little bit buggy especially by means of navigation within the app, but I can select the Netherlands (Country drop down list, to select an address to navigate to).

    Moreover, I could imagine, that it gets better in the first quarter next year. There was a press release in Dec. that they are soon to be changing maps to OpenStreetMaps (open source, wikipedia) and are going to introduce new features as well.

    they are still in beta phase, experienced something similar a few weeks ago for a few hours, but right now, everything's working fine for me.

    No joy on 9530 so far.

    I downloaded Skobbler succesfully, but it will not let me navigate through the menus.
    Also I am not able to register - it expects Euro phone prefixes only.

    Will keep trying

    Have you tried a re-boot (battery pull) after installation? If I remember it correctly it asked me to re-boot, which I confirmed with a 'yes'.

    Re. registration, if you press the ...hmpf, what is it called - option key(?) - you can chose to skip registration there, and it will allow you to use it for 120 days.

    Optionally, you can go for the free account here:
    Register - skobbler
    where only a valid email account is required while the phone number is optional.

    It's working fine here (OS 5.0.0.425) - maybe you would like to try the higher OS in case you are really desperate?

    In that case you can find it in our download section:
    BlackberryOS.com - Downloads - 9500_5.0.0.425

    Update: Skobbler for BB discontinued?!

    Too sad, the free European navigational app, Skobbler, seems to be discontinued so far...the developers talk about device fragmentation, new card supplier - but imho the main reason is, they've also developed it for iPhone and their app store - do I need to say more?
