Location-sharing start-up Wizi has announced the release of SMS with Location for BlackBerry.

The application adds a new option to BlackBerry contacts allowing users to send an SMS with their actual position or the location where they are heading.

Wizi also recommends the best routes when driving in the city using traffic data collected in real time by its community.

Based in Lisbon, Portugal, Wizi’s SMS with Location lets users:

  • Find actual location on map (F)
  • Automatically insert the full address is SMS
  • Automatically insert GPS coordinates in SMS
  • Copy location to clipboard allowing to paste in any IM application
  • Search location by address (S)
  • Switch between BB Maps or Google Maps (M)

Wizi’s Andre Goncalves said SMS with Location is currently only available for BlackBerry Device Software 4.5 but would be released soon for Windows Mobile.
