I recently purchased a Blackberry Bold and would like to use the GPS for in car navigation. (I have already purchased a windshield mount). Can anyone recommend a good GPS application. I've got Google Maps but would prefer something that stored all maps on the SD Card and has voice instructions. I have tried the Garmin demo buy it doesn't seem to have NZ maps available.

Any recommendation appreciated.

I've not used it on b/berry, but Garmin XT is great (I think its called something else for b/berry). You can get free and up-to-date NZ maps from the excellent folk at the Open GPS project:-

Try Nav4All it does not store the maps on the device but seems pretty light on usage. it is free and does voice directions. i use it on my BB Bold.

yes, you can use Garmin with the OpenGPS Maps. They seem to be pretty good, probably as good as the Garmin maps, if not better.
