GPS on the Blackberry 8800 With Google Maps
It was only a matter of time before the GPS device on your car became obsolete!
And of course Google is the one that’s about to kill the entire Garmin-TomTom-Magellen-industry. How?
With Google Maps integrated with GPS live on your cell phone! The Blackberry 8800 which comes GPS-enabled on ATT Wireless / Cingular allows applications on the device to use the location services and GoogleMaps is an elegant solution . . .
Google Maps combined with GPS capabilities allows you to gain access not only to advanced mapping and traffic updates, it gives you turn by turn directions in real-time just like that bulky device that many people have suction-cupped to the windows of their car.
You can get directions to where you going without knowing the exact cross streets or address of where you are sitting at that given moment.
Here’s 3 options to get it onto your Blackberry 8800 GPS-enabled cell phone:
- Download it directly using the browser on the Blackberry – go to http://www.google.com/gmm
- Download the CAB file to your PC first and run ActiveSync to install it onto your Blackberry
- Corporate types can download it onto their Enterprise Servers
