If you are new to the world of GPS+Blackberry, you need to understand the following:
    • Not all  Blackberrys have GPS built in, therefore you may need a bluetooth external GPS receiver.
    • Some Blackberrys don't have an external memory (SD Card) slot.  This means that most GPS software is "Off-Board."  Update:  The Bold 9000, Storm 9500, Curve 83xx, Pearl, and 8800 do have mini-SD slots.
    • "Off-Board" means that the maps are stored on the internet and downloaded by your Blackberry when needed.
    • "Off-Board" requires a data connections (GPRS) and extra charges may apply
    • "On-Board" means that the maps are stored on your PDA, usually on an SD card (TomTom, etc...)
       
      DISCLAIMER:  Use the following at your own risk! Software listed below may have added features or changed pricing since it was reviewed.
