    BBMaps for Australia

    hey guys,

    just wondering..does anyone have a clue when RIM is gonna update their BBmaps with Australian Maps just like the US?

    i've been waiting for over a year now and it just seems like they've forgotten about us...

    i do use google maps but i'd prefer to have my maps running on BBMaps since it has turn to turn notices and stuff and have one less program running on my addictive personal assistant....

    Good News for you....RIM is working with TeleAtlas to add Australia and NZ to their licensing for map data...
    I would say it will be ready on the servers around the time 5.0 is released...
    it costs money to add map data for new regions and I guess they had to wait till the number of blackberries in Australia justified it....
