Traveling this Holiday Season? Get your Itinerary Details on your Berry for FREE with WorldMate Live

By Kevin Michaluk on 13 Dec 2007 07:30 am EST

Heading out of town this Holiday Season? Before you go "Leaving on a Jet Plane", be sure to check out WorldMate Live. With WorldMate Live on your BlackBerry you will be able to:

  • Get real-time travel notifications so you are the first to know if you flight isn't on schedule.
  • Use the itinerary viewer to check your flights, hotel, car rental and meeting details in an easy to read format.
  • Easily send a friend your itinerary so they know when to come meet you at the airport.
  • Get customized map views of your trip so you can get the lay of the land.
  • Get currency conversions and more!

You can download WMLive for free. Some of the services stay FREE (Weather, Currency Converter, World Map), while other features (Flight Schedules, Flight Status, Travel Directory) offer a 7-day trial. After that you'll need to upgrade to the Gold Membership ($9.95/month or $99.95/year), which if you're a frequent flyer may prove worth the investment. I'm heading for a 7 day vacation come Dec.31st so will be activating my trial then! I'll let you guys know what I think.

Watch the WorldMate Max video above for a fun illustration, click here for detailed product overview, and if you're ready to give it a try just head on over to wmlive.com on your Berry's browser.

[ Thanks Josep!



I had Worldmate on my Palm and WM devices and it was pretty spendy. Is this a trail version? A 30 trail? Is a credit card required that will convert this into an annual subscription?


The flight status feature on this I found to be worthless. I was at my gate in Newark when a 2 hour delay was announced due to inclement weather in SFO. WorldMate was giving me information that my flight was on time. Worthless flight info.


Before buying this, I would read these posts from the forum. Some topics were brought up that might make or break you buying it. It's a small post, but it might help you.



You'd think that by now everyone would know that they don't wear berets in France!

Other than that, looks pretty handy.
