    Google Maps 2.02

    Advertisement



    I just installed Google Maps 2.02 and it is just so sluggish. I don't know what is causing it but this new version has issues. It is like the sam sluggishness that I get with AmazeGPS where scrolling to different options has some serious lag. I would hold of unless you really want to try it out. I did not notice anything different. The favorites did get moved over to the new version.

    THanks for the heads up evil,

    I'm a big fan of Google maps - currently have 2.0 and it seems good. I'll watch this and hold off on the new version.

    I have version 2.01 and google updater doesn't say there's an update. This version seems to work fine for me, I'm on a 8300.

    Just updated to this new version. It actually seems as fast if not faster than the previous version. Definetly not slower on my BB.

    I'm using ver 2.01 on my 8310 & it's just OK in terms of speed. Accuracy is pretty good, & it would be my guess that given some time, Googles next rev will have these issues sorted out.

    Bottom line, in my opinion since it's free you cannot lose.

    This is the Google Maps link:

    http://www.google.com/gmm/index.html...0maps%20mobile

    There may be different versions for different phones and it isn't availble yet to all smart phones. My daughter's Treo for example as of a few weeks ago.

    She an her hus-person are Treo people but he has a BB too.

    I downloaded 2.0.2 (pearl) also and no problems. I'll update if I hit any as I use it.

    Same problem on my 8310. 2.02 is considerably slower than 2.01 for me. I also can't tell any difference between the two, except for the sluggishness of course. I definitely don't recommend upgrading if you have a Curve.

    From the posts so far is seems it's just the Curve having the problem with 2.02, and the Pearl is fine.. strange.
