AAA announced today that that its AAA Mobile application is now available for download on the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition and the BlackBerry Pearl 8130. The application allows BlackBerry users to receive visual and audible directions to any US travel destination.
The application also lets users bookmark locations for easy access later. Roadside assistance subscribers can also get access to roadside service easier. The application sends GPS coordinates to AAA to route assistance faster and easier.
"Now business travelers can use a BlackBerry smartphone to search for a AAA Diamond Rated restaurant or hotel, and members can send AAA their GPS location if they require roadside assistance," said Marshall L. Doney, Vice President, Automotive at AAA. The monthly subscription for the service is $9.99.
