The bottom line with any sat-nav app or device is whether you can find destinations and get to them without being led on ridiculously circuitous routes, and Telmap5 does achieve this adequately. The map is a little hard to see on a small Blackberry screen, such as the one on the Bold 9700 we were using for testing, although this is mitigated by the excellent viewing angles and general brightness of many Blackberry displays. But for finding your way every now and then, it’s perfectly adequate. So Blackberry owners potentially have something to compete with Nokia’s Ovi Maps and Android’s Google Maps Navigation, although Telmap5 is not Blackberry only, and is available for other handset platforms too.
