    Google Maps with GPS

    Advertisement



    I just installed google maps on my 8800 and it seems to identify using GPS the location. I have just had this for an hour and from what ive read here - this seems new and doesnt require BB maps. Am i talking about the wrong feature?

    Same positive results for me. I have to admit it was strange turning on the satellite view and seeing that little dot about six feet from where I was sitting.

    When I used it the first time, I checked (without thinking it through) the bo that ok'd linking the maps to gps without asking again. Anyone know how to change that back?

    Go to options, then advanced, then applications, highlight google maps, press the menu key, choose edit permissions, expand connections by highlighting it, pressing menu, then choosing expand....this should list Location (GPS) here and you can change it to what you want.

    On the new version, if you go to help and select About, what version # shows on your Pearl? Just curious.
