I used Google maps for the first time yesterday, and it was pretty good in getting me to my destination. The return home though was absolutely hell!! Google Maps loaded, but it wouldn't show my actual location, only as a map, with London indicated. Great-I KNOW I'm in London! I put in the address that I was heading back to, but it wouldn't download the directions.
I then got an error message saying something about checking data coverage, I had full service, my web browser worked fine. I did a few battery pulls but nothing. Frustrated, I attempted to navigate home by ear (which was not fun) still not giving up on the Google Maps. It would download the route...but then lose it again saying there was a problem with coverage.
After many wrong turns, frustration, rude words....I eventually made it home, (by which point GoogleMaps decided to tell me how to get home when I pulled up outside home), and swiftly removed the application from my BB. A useless application taking up valuable space.
Just wanted to rant a little, and share my experience. I think I'm just gonna pay Ł40 for TelMap, and use that. I've used it on a friends BB, and had my own trial, and I'm happy with it, so I'll just use that....plus it has voice navigation! Beats trying to read & drive!!
