As far as I know, this is already possible on Verizon. My father downloaded this from Google to his BB.
BUT the Google Maps doesnt have access to the GPS Radio... Just cell tower triangulation.

That's not true. I have a BB Tour, and Google Maps works perfectly.

I believe that this is also true for the Storm, and it will be true for all future Verizon BlackBerries. Your father must be using an older model?
