    How do I use the GPS on my Blackberry Bold 9700?

    Hi Guys,

    Do I need to buy a data/service plan to get turn by turn directions on my GPS for the Blackberry Bold 9700?? Its like 10 dollars a month for a service plan and thats kinda expensive...is there any way to get GPS turn by turn directions for free? I heard of something called Google Maps...is that an option or do I need an internet connection for that too?

    Try this link from your phone browser. http://www.gln.bz/ads.nsf/bbmapslaunch.jad

    It should put blackberry maps on your 9700. It works well but does not have voice turn by turn. Just visual turn by turn.

    Please note I removed the link in your signature as per rules and guidelines.

    You do need a data plan for turn by turn directions. I have not found an app that runs without a data plan yet. If I find one, rest assured, I will be writing about it in Hammerdown Monday.
