Yes and No

Yes you can install Garmin Mobile XT via buying it in uSD card
No you cannot install MFM maps into BB as the way it works is the maps are provided through service provider.

Bro AhmadFamir, choice of phone is personal. Buy to your lifestyle and feature needs. Buying the most expensive does not equate to satisfaction.

Just a quick summary of BB vs Apple phone.
If your primary needs are for email then go for BB as this is their strength
If your primary needs are for surfing web, downloading stuff, music, entertainment, then go for iPod Phone

If you want a review of the blackberry, google for it. There are a lot of reviews floating around :thumbsup:

See silverbeauty's post above.


Just to seek clarification, Garmin Mobile XT can install on a BB but can't install any map ( MFM) into the BB device ?

I don recall any service provider offer any map to their BB user. BB have their own map but it useless.

Any BB with Garmin mobile XT user can give their comment on this ?

Until local service provider support this, do not waste your money and time trying to get Garmin maps installed. Currently this feature only available for Blackberry that rides on US based service provider. The mapping and route calculation is being sent from the service provider central server.
