    Google Maps vs Blackberry Maps

    I have been using Google Maps for awhile, integrated with Poynt.
    The connection between the two apps always seemed slow, so I decided to try BB Maps.
    I have to admit that I'm impressed. The search options seem better and just works much quicker. I never thought Blackberry would have a better product than Google, so I think I'll keep it.
    Anyone else have any opinions between the two apps?

    I used both (not anymore) but when I did I preferred BB Maps just for the fact that it didn't cause a memory leak like Google Maps did.

    Thanks, that good to know.
    It seems logical that when an app runs quicker than another that does the same thing, the memory leakage would be less, true?

    Compared to the other 3rd party apps and themes IMO google maps is less of leak that many of those. I have both google maps and BB maps and 99% of the time I go with google. I like the interface better, it's faster and more accurate. V3.0.2 of google maps has very little memory leak. However, if you see latitude (which I don't) that's where I hear a lot of the leak comes into play. Just my two cents.

    I like google maps better, but the GPS won't work with VZW curve. So for functionality bb maps has my vote.
