okay so me and my boyfriend are having the same problem with our bb maps navi...its not vz nav either..we use the one that came with the phone. can some one help me cause it seems that when i call verizon they dont know what the hell their talking about. thanks
try going through the DM and re-installing BB maps
I'd even recommend using Google maps (I liked that one better and it's almost half the file size as bb maps)
hope that helps some
let me know if you need help with any thing

we have tried that and didnt have any luck. he also suggested that we use google maps but ive been using mapquest online and he's been using the goole maps. if theres anything else that we can try plz let me know. thanks
Have u tried refreshing the GPS go to options / advanced options / GPS and press the menu key and select refresh GPS. Does it work
also if you upgraded your OS BB MAPS will not work. you will need to get the file from your old OS and load it to the new one.
You're kidding me right? Google maps is an absolute pig compared to BB Maps for data usage!!

Now, that you both quit working is a bit suspicious (makes me think you broke something)
What error code are you getting...what is maps doing??
When I upgraded OS on my 8310 I would pull up BB MAPS and only got lines on the screen. After some research on this site I found that if you moved a file from your old OS or APP and replaced/added to new OS or APP I was able to use BBMAPS again.
So basically I am getting my information from this site as always.
If this is the case you can refer tothis link.

She can reinstall BB Maps dres79 - but the default behavior on an OS upgrade is that DM will also upgrade Maps (it's part of the distribution).
