    and keep an eye out on bbmaps for the next 6 months when 5.0 releases...you may be impressed...uttahere:
    Sorry but I have to disagree with you on this IMHO. I'm all about user friendly and really could care less about how it looks. Google maps is much more user friendly quicker and all around a better app. What annoys me about BB maps is that if it can't find your location, which is quite often, you are not able to user any of the search functions (and when it does it says you are Grand Rapids, MI when I am in Los Angeles). Whereas with Google maps, it use triangulation as a default in case you are indoors and need to look something up. I really hope 5.0 is better but right now google maps is on another level. Just my two cents.

    Goolge Maps is killing BBmaps hands down. U can't get your location and no directions. Kind of defeats the purpose IMO. I to preserve memory I deleted BBmaps lol.
