Last week the Herald looked at the new Compass product from Vodafone – a location finding and route planning service.

Type your destination address into the BlackBerry and you’ll be guided to your destination – both visually on the handset’s screen and audibly by a rather robotic voice coming out of the phone’s speaker.

I think location based services are the future killer apps for mobile phones. About to download and try it.

UPDATE: Have it installed and it is great. Even better it is free until October. Google Maps for Blackberry is cool but the data charges are a killer. This is free for now, and even in the future only $10 a month or something.
