BlackBerry free Sat Nav

Telmap makes a "Turn by Turn" GPS Navigation application for the BlackBerry.  It turns your blackberry into a Garmin or Tom Tom type navigation device with voice prompts to guide you.  It is hugely more useful than the native Maps application.  This application is distributed for free by Vodafone.  It does however appear to work on any network since BIS is used for the data transfer

 The app is however only supported on the following devices:

  • BlackBerry® Pearl 8110
  • BlackBerry® Curve™ 8310 smartphone
  • BlackBerry® 8800
  • BlackBerry® BOLD 9000
  • BlackBerry® Storm™ 9500
  • BlackBerry® Curve™ 8900
  • BlackBerry Bold 9700
  • BlackBerry Storm2 9520
  • BlackBerry Torch 9800
  • BlackBerry Curve 9300
  • BlackBerry Pearl 9105

The installation is pretty straight forward.  Open the browser and go to

If your device is supported you will get an option to download.
Start the download and then you will once again be prompted.
  • Select Download
  • Wait for the application to install
  • You will be prompted for Application Permissions - Select Yes
  • Scroll down and Save
  • Select Run 

The application should now start up

Warning - For the Blackberry to find itself for the first time seems to take a really long time...

I know for a fact this works in South Africa.  It would be nice if someone can confirm if this works internationally.

If I go to that page it doesn't give me a "download" option. I have a Torch and SatNav always worked on my phone. I tried to use it today and it is gone! I have tried to re-install it but it still won't work??
