Gokivo - new free voice guided navigation app for BlackBerry smartphones

By James Richardson on 17 Jul 2012 09:51 am EDT

Another free voice guided navigation app has arrived for BlackBerry smartphones. It goes by the name of Gokivo and seems to tick all the boxes.

Like a few similar applications, Gokivo doesn't store the maps on your BlackBerry but instead downloads each route as you need it. I took the app for a drive last night and it performed just like it should. With a nice choice of colors on screen it looks good too. In addition; POI's are built in so you can ensure that local amenities are always at hand.

We will have a full review of the app here on CrackBerry but in the meantime if you want to give it a try yourself you can download from the below link. We would love to hear your views.

Murst. How is this any different than Blackberry Traffic? Doesn't Blackberry Traffic offer routes and read directions aloud.


Blackberry traffic does not have a map. It also works on OS 5 devices, like my 8530.

This app looks interesting but it will not work for me, since it is for OS 7+!

James Richardson

BlackBerry Traffic is not available in Europe so we rely on apps like this.


Not showing up yet on BB Apps. Also link does not open from your post.

James Richardson

Just tried the link and it is working just fine. Have another go.


I think you ought to point out that it's only available in the UK, James.


Correct. I tried to install it on my 9810 (OS 7.1+) and said it is not available for my device. I went to the website and also found out it is fir the UK only. Seems like a good app though.


Tried to download it but says not compatible for my 9900 running OS 7.1 from Rogers?


works only in UK, Rogers is in CA, right ?


Yes rogers is in Canada...I didn't read where it is only for the UK....


doesn't have Canadian maps .. only works for UK downloads I would think .. where's the Canadian/US version? 8-(


On 7.0 thru AT&T (9900) but it's reads "Unavailable for this device" hmm


Pity it's not available on 9810 nor in US


No us support?! Pffftttt.


Like everything should be made for Americans, geez. Probably first to say, "Sucks to be you!" when we get apps that Europeans don't as well. Get over youself.

I'm disappointed as well, but there will be apps that are for the European audience just like there are ones for the North American audience.

I think it looks cool, and hopefully we will see some NA support in the future. I say Kudos to the app developer.


It would be good to mention that it's only available in the UK, so that the rest of us don't get frustrated trying to find it! :-) I wish a free navigation app with maps would become available for the US so I could quit paying... Regardless, this looks like a great app!


Definitely needs to be mentioned it's UK only


It doesn't look like this is free, either!


Not exactly free! It's a free trial and then $4.99 a month.


The App World version is completely free.


Per their website - It is available In Canada, US and UK, but free for only 14 day trial. After that $4.99 per month.


Per their website, completely free and ONLY available in the UK...


Website is all this info is which is it?


Their website is confusing, but the version available on App World is the only version now supported by Gokivo. It's only available in the UK, it's only available for OS7 devices, and it's completely free with no trial period or monthly subscriptions.


I've been using this app for a few days now and I think it's a great navigation application. A bit confused because it definitely says free, no mention of a fee.


UK only. :(
It should say that when you try to DL it, instead of "unavailiable for this device"


Try telenav. Its freakin $10 for a whole year. I realize .80 a month for an excellent turn by turn voice navigation app is too much for many. But for everyone else, its a winner.


again not available here :(

Since I upgraded my Bold 9000 to 5.0 and above with my 9900 I have no navigation on my BB. It was than, as I first realised the bad support/importants of BB compared to iOS and Android to the carrier (as I got a free OS 4.7 Version of Telmap Navigation there).



This just blows, although BB traffic is pretty good, a MAP is much needed! And this review is great if you live in the UK. :P


Give it 14 days, then we'll know if it is truly free.


I've had it since May 31st... it's free.


Works a treat, why does the app need access to your personal information? Do they sell it on then offer the app for free?


Off topic, but does anyone know the name of the theme in the pic? I've been trying to find one with blue indicators and PB icons for my 9790 with no luck...


Does not work for 9850. it tells me it not available for my device.


Disregard question. Already answered above (wish we could delete comments here...)


When or will it ever be available for the 9930?
