    Question google maps works on 8100, but no other Google app...

    Advertisement



    Quick one hopefully...

    Just got a Pearl 8100. Google maps works great unless any other google app is installed, then gmaps does the freezing, crashing thing other users have found. When that happens the other Google apps are fine but gmaps always crashes. I've done all installs with the BB browser, not opera Mini, although opera mini is installed. I've tried installing in every order I could think of. Any idea what the trouble is?
    I'd love to use all the Google apps but can't get them to stop fighting.

    I did search the forums but didn't find anyone with this particular affliction.

    thanks for any advice,
    Bill

    I'm going to go out on a limb. Is this an AT&T Pearl by any chance? Have you synced your phone to your PC with the Desktop Manager that came with your phone? If yes, I am willing to bet that the problem is with your phone having a corrupted OS and Desktop Manager application. Google Mobile Apps isn't the problem, its the faulty DM program shipped with your phone.

    The primary symptom is that your Browsers completely disappear after you sync the phone. Has this happened to you?

    Actually, it's t-mobile phone. I just got it a few days ago, I'm on a Mac, and only today (problems have been around for days) did I download pocketmac to transfer contacts from Address book. That's the only computer interation that's happened

    any more specifics:
    t-mobile
    8100
    data = $20/month Blackberry plan



    thanks for your first good attempt,
    Bill

    Iv had the same problem as the OP, but mine is an ATT phone. I did not use the DM from the disc, I downloaded the latest from RIM. Running 4.2 SP2.

    Zik & Lowrider - I downloaded/installed everything over the air straight into the phone. I only have a mac. Will these google things not work unless I use a download manager and install via a PC computer?

    Re: google maps works on 8100, but no other Google app...

    Ok I fixed it. Or found a workaround. When all google apps are installed the gmap won't open./ But if in google search I go to maps, then download maps it installs a 2nd version of google maps that does function perfectly. So then I just make the first installed google maps hard to find so I don't use it, or go into advanced options, Google, edit modules, and delete the 2 google ones. I would delete by opening the google services area... but that crashes. Also, to note, the icon for the google map that works looks different - it looks like a compass tilted at an angle and does NOT have a multi-color ring around it like the 1st version that downloading all google apps installed. Thanks for the advice in trying to fix this
