Blackberry GPS & MAP APPs I most use when I am out kayaking.


My most used Blackberry Applications for GPS list.

If you have a spot you want to record some notes with GPS coordinates the “GPS Waypoint Manager” will do the job. It’s still in bata but so far I am liking it.

Blackstar will record your track and can be saved in a standard GPX file that can be used with your GeoTagged photos to plot your trip photos on a map at www.EveryTrail.com

Google MAPS with both a Satellite view and standard street-map view.

Note: GPS is a good thing but take care when using it. When using GPS APPs be sure they are off or exited out after use as they will drain your battery over a long period of time. Another thing to keep in mind is if your camera is GPS enabled (aka GeoTag enabled) if your camera is left open it operates the GPS too! My Live Blog: http://guythalizard.posterous.com/
