Received this at work, it was announced at the Sales conference and is now live. I've downloaded it and have had a play and it works really well. The point was made at the conference that the $10 fee includes any data that Compass downloads.
We are very pleased to announce that Vodafone Compass has now launched and is available for download onto your BlackBerry Curve 8310 GPS handset. This is a application providing location based services:
1. Turn-by-turn spoken word and , on-screen navigation instructions for walking or driving - a baby Navman if you will
2. Ability to search for a range of Points Of Interest such as airports, ATM's, banks, Dept stores etc etc. - then bring up their map location
3. Compass can send a TXT message of a location you want to meet someone at and if they also have Compass then it will pop up on their handset
4. Auto-update: notifies user when there is a new version available which they then click to download and replace the old version.
It will cost customers $10.00 per month recurring subscription or $2.50 for 24 hours use with no additional data charges, charged via Vlive! Simple!
Introductory Offer: anyone who downloads Compass before July 31st onto their BlackBerry GPS handset will get FREE use until October 31st. For more details visit: http://www.vodafone.co.nz/services/compass.jsp, or just go straight to http://go.live/compass with the Vlive browser on your 8310 Curve.
