Although there's no official Google Maps app for BlackBerry 10, that doesn't mean there's no great map apps for BlackBerry 10. NavFree is one app I've been testing lately easily becoming one of my favorites. The features list for NavFree is extensive and the way they've set their app up is great. You don't need to download every map they offer, just the ones you need and you're set.
Previously though, it wasn't available on any of the Q-Series of BlackBerry 10 devices but a new update available in BlackBerry World right now changes that, as it adds support for the Q5 and Q10. As for that features list, have a look below to see it all laid out. If you're looking for a mapping app, NavFree is something you'll want to check out and best of all, it's available as a free download.
- Complete voice guided navigation
- Incredibly beautiful HD maps
- Fast routing - no data connection is required!
- Missed a turn? No problem…let automatic rerouting get you back on track.
- Switch to walking mode when you're on foot.
- Offline and Online address search.
- Simple POI search within Navfree, or use Foursquare for an extensive list.
- Navigate via Postcode, city, street or POI. What's here?
- Integrated Google street view
As I mentioned, NavFree is available as a free download but should you need some more advanced features they do also offer premium content as well. Celebrity voices, expanded traffic data, safety cameras and live parking info are just some of the additional options available for purchase but NavFree isn't out there trying to 'push' them onto you either. The app works just fine without them. Give it a go and let us know what you think.
