    I cant download google maps!

    Advertisement



    I just recently activated the internet on my bb 8700g, and I love it so far!!

    The problem is when I tried to download google maps on my bb, it says "HTTP Error 406: Not Acceptable".

    I have a horrible sense of direction, and I absolutly need google maps, or bb maps!

    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    thanks!

    What site are you trying to download google maps from?

    Point your phone's browser to http://mobile.google.com to get the OTA link for maps.

    Maybe check the settings in your browser. Open the browser, click the wheel and choose options. See what settings are in there.

    I changed the "emulation mode" from blackberry, to WAP, IE, and netscape all to no avail. I also made it support embedded media, and that didnt work either.

    Anything specific I should check?

    Sounds like it is model specific, google mobile maps works on my 8830.

    Maybe someone with knowledge can compare operating systems.

    Google Maps works fine on my Cingular 8700. www.google.com/gmm is the link I used to update mine.

    glm or gmm should work. Thats what I've always used. If it isn't working, the site may be down for whatever reason.

    Strange. I don't know what the answer is. I have an 8700 & I recently installed it. I do have the newest AT&T 4.2 OS.
