    Amaze actually works really well but is a little hard to get use to, it's not fully "storm" capable, most features you touch some you click, give it time to connect especially the first time could take up to 20 minutes for it to turn green, and when setting you're location, start with the first letter of the city then use the arrows at the very bottom to scroll, can be pretty fustrating. I have had it since they got the gps to work around a month ago and it is spot on in St. Louis. Just be patient with it. It's not really user friendly "storm user that is" but it works great. Turn by turn with either arrows or roads and even tells you if you are going over the speed limit. I give it an A-

    I have used TeleNav on my curve and it's sweet...but it's $10 a month. Never had any problems with it, it's a great app IMO. But I haven't tried it on my Storm. Looks like they have a free 30 day trial, though.

    Yeah, I'm running Amaze on the Storm and previously on my Curve.....great GPS program that works well. Given time, I'm sure they'll make it more Storm friendly with clicking for selections. Another one that isn't bad is Life-in-Pocket, also free.
