So, even if you don't have a nav system in your vehicle, you can get turn-by-turn directions, both visual and spoken instructions, by subscribing to AAA Mobile. The service is available to both members and non-members of Triple-A.
The service is available on the latest BlackBerry smartphone models, the 8830 World Edition and Pearl 8130.
In addiiton to directions to any destination in the U.S., the service will locate AAA approved points of interest (POIs), including Diamond Rated hotels and restaurants. Plus, it will direct you to more than 100,000 locations that offer AAA discounts.
Perhaps even more importantly, pressing a single button on the BlackBerry smartphone sends your GPS location to AAA reliable roadside assistance services. This safety service, though, is available only to AAA members.
So, no more excuses about being late because you forgot the address -- or even the name -- of that restaurant where you are meeting your best buddies.
AAA Mobile costs $9.99 a month.
