Free GPS compass on your BlackBerry

Ronen just posted a review of Neosistec’s CarFinder, which lets you mark a location using your GPS-enabled device to find it later. Saving locations is something BlackBerry Maps does anyway, but having a little compass which keeps you pointed in that direction is a great extra feature which you don’t get otherwise. Combined with the option to send the location to others, the app pretty handy outside of just finding your car. On the whole, it looks more lightweight and easy to use than BB Maps if you’re just looking for this kind of casual use. If this is something you’re interested in trying out, you can download CarFinder free over the air from
