BigTinCan Mapper Pro - 50 Free Copies

By Adam Zeis on 2 Oct 2009 02:53 pm EDT

One more contest before everyone hits happy hour today. BigTinCan Mapper Pro is a cool app that lets you be a part of OSM (Open Street Mapping) by mapping your area and adding points of interest. The app lets you track your route, check out live GPS details and even send the map as an ALX or GPE file to a PC. BigTinCan Mapper Pro obviously isn't for everyone as it targets a specific audience, but if you want to help map the world then you should absolutely check it out. It is a very cool app and a great OSM utility. BigTinCan Mapper Pro sells for $4.99 in the CrackBerry App Store, but you can win one of 50 free copies by leaving a comment on this post. A slimmed down free version is also available. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won't count.

BigTinCan Mapper Pro - 50 Free Copies



I love to have this, I use my gps and maps all the times for photographic purpose and way point. Be greatfull to have this one for free!!! Much love for it!!

It sucks that no one can find my house. The subdivision has been here for 3 years. Come on! If I get this app I will show the way to my house.

I really like this, trackability at it's finest. Show me some love and hook me up with a copy. Thank You

This would be awesome to have to help out the fair amount of travellers we have from out of the area who use blackberries!

Hopefully my luck on these CB contests will change. I never win anything!

But seriously, BigTinCan has put out great apps. I'm sure this one will be the same.


I really like the built in GPS that these phones have. It's great for me because i travel by motorcycle a lot and it makes it so i don't have to carry extra electronic devices. All i need is in one place. A GPS logger will come in real handy for those times i travel down unfamiliar roads and i want to check the route i rode later when i get back home. Great for those moments where you pass a place you've never seen but say hey i wanna go back there sometime.Now not only will you know where you're going but also where you've been.

The ability to customize maps with an actual route would be helpful for camping or other events where there is no landmark or address to reference.

I have had sooo much trouble with other GPS apps. I am hoping this one will actually work. I greatly appreciate you giving out a few apps. I would certainly like a shot at one.

I have been active user of BBMaps and Google Maps.
BigTinCan Mapper Pro surely be a nice GPS application addition for Storm, not to mention potential competition of other two :-)


I'd love to have a copy of this app to add many areas in NW Alberta and northern BC that do not appear on many maps. I work in the oilpatch and travel many oilfield and logging roads that have recently been built, therefore not appearing on many maps at all.


I honestly don't see how this could really help me as the BB maps is a great app and so is google maps but heck if I win I'll use it for sure!

OMG, I LOVE this. My wife and I are avid geocachers and love to get out to explore the world.. We would love the chance to share our places and experiences with everyone else. Please let us win this great app.


Help! I'm hungover! I don't know where I am. I forgot how to get home. Oh, and I'm craving some greasy pizza. Know where I can get some close by? LOL

I travel all over north & south carolina for work. Plus when bored I like to just drive around & find new roads.

I'e been saving tracks and converting them to custom maps for my garmin GPS's for quite a while, it would be cool to participate in the OSM project.

It's the best navigation apps by far and I am surely would like to get a chance on getting the pro version.
