about BlackBerry Traffic and Waze Jul 2012

Waze is the only navigation system for BlackBerry smartphones with screens larger than 3.5 " and with a minimum resolution of 800x480 pixels:

As for the mobile operating system Android, Windows Mobile, Symbian and the iPhone, there are several good navigation systems, Waze is the only navigation system for BlackBerry smartphones with a large display. For all BlackBerry models with a smaller display than 3.7 inches and less resolution than 800x480 pixels is also "BlackBerry Traffic" by RIM available as a free navigation app from the BlackBerry App World. To be able to use navigation systems well visible, a display size of at least 3.7 inches and a minimum resolution of 800x480 pixels is recommended. These hardware requirements are met in July 2012, only by the BlackBerry 9860 smartphone, on which (with OS 7.0) "BlackBerry Traffic," by July 2012 can not be installed.

So for the BlackBerry 9860 with OS 7 Waze is the only (and free) navigation solution.

Until March 2012 Waze crashed occasionally, when BlackBerry 9860 was communicating with the Waze server for route calculation-purposes. It has been successful, that Waze has sent detailed log files to the server after each crash (after user approval). So since April 2012 Waze with all the features works on the BlackBerry 9860 just as reliable as in the Waze versions for Windows Mobile, Android, Symbian and Apple iPhone IOS.
