Telmap Integrates with Blackberry Messenger
Navigation and LBS supplier Telmap today announced that it has completed the integration between its Telmap Mobile Location Companion and the popular instant messaging service Blackberry Messenger (BBM).

Blackberry Messenger users can now send a request to a contact of theirs to share their current location and if approved, can see the location on a map within the Telmap Mobile Location Companion, receive any available details about that location and navigate to it.
the integration provides also a viral element to spread the Telmap software. Indeed, Blackberry Messenger users can send a message with a download link to their contacts, inviting them to download the Telmap Mobile Location Companion for a richer Blackberry Messenger experience.

BBM currently has an active user base of over 35 million, growing over 1.5 million each month. Telmap has more than five million users with a strong base that owns Blackberry devices.
