    Question Google Maps?

    Advertisement



    I am looking for a good Map application because I travel often. Has anyone found any good ones? I downloaded Google Maps for mobile and can not seem to get it to do anything except show me a view of north America and Mexico? Am I using it wrong? Are instructions somewhere that I missed? Any help would be appriciated!!!

    just hit the toggle wheel and select a location or business name.

    Google Maps is a MUST HAVE APP!

    Directions, Business Finder, Traffic features.... I use it regularly. Can't say enough good things about it.

    Has anyone had problems with Google maps and the Pearl? How can you zoom in and out with a suretype key pad? I prefer Google Maps to the blackberry ap. Thanks

    I know that the direct link for Google Maps is:

    Google.Com/Gmm

    Hope that helps.

    Re: Google Maps?

    i00jay, Welcome to PinStack.

    I don't know if it is available in a format to load using Desktop Manager. In addition, it needs access to the internet to work. All the images are loaded on the the fly and not stored on your BB. If the reason you want to load it using DM is because you don't have a BB Data Plan, Google Maps for Mobile will not work for you.

    Hope this helps
    Rcbjr.
