You may want to go here:

and ask. They have a GPS section where you might find your answer. Also Ovi Maps (free) works just fine on the i8910 (with a little bit of work).

When you say a little bit of work, I am having a problem with Ovi Maps in that it will not load the 'Drive To' screen once a search result has been chosen, the voice is there giving directions but the screen will not load. Any suggestions?

Thumbs down no help, but...

This will be of no help to you... but I weigh in with an opinion -
I've never used the i8910 for business purposes, it has always been too buggy, etc. and new ROMs = security issues; but I do use the i8910 handset for leisure purposes. As such, the GPS function has always interested me and I have tried out pretty much every solution going. My conclusion: I've always used a third party GPS, in the end the i8910 solutions are just too much trouble. My current device: a Garmin 3790T, which I would recommend. It, too, has some teething problems, but the fact that 99% of the time it just works for me, saves me time (and therefore... money).
I trialled out for a long time the Route 66 software on the i8910, but as this was removed after every re-flash - and at one point I was re-flashing at least twice a month, I just gave up reinstalling any software back on the i8910 after a reflash, except Opera and Google Maps (which, as we know, still does not have turn by turn given S60v5 rather than Android 2.1+).
Sorry for this bit of a non-post, but...
Good luck! all the same.
