    Question 8100 Error message when loading Google Maps

    Advertisement



    Hi folks! I'm new to this forum so a big hello to everyone! I need help resolving a problem I am having when loading Google Mobile Maps.

    I downloaded Gmm via the browser and it says it was correctly installed but everytime I open the program it fails. First of all I get Error: Null then I get another error java.lang.NullPointerException and asking me to click OK. The program then terminates.

    Anyone have any ideas? Is Gmm available in the UK? I am in the UK on Vodaphone service.

    First, Welcome to the Stacks

    I am not sure if its available for the UK someone else may be able to answer that.

    Have you tried a Hard reset? Pull the battery wait 30 seconds and reinsert.

    I too am new to Pinstack, but I have found a tread I can contribute to. I have a new 8100 and thought I would give Google Maps a try after searching around for free apps. It has loaded fine and seems to work OK (I've only tried for a few minutes). The UK seems like it is fully covered and I can see across into Europe too. I'm not sure if there is anything else I can help with (8100 software version etc.). I am running through a corporate BES (that I am also responsible for).

    dmarchant, Welcome to PinStack.

    Thanks for the information. It's good to know that Google Maps Mobile will work for some UK customers. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help with your BB.

    I got this message on my pearl, Tmobile - USA. I submitted a help request to google got the auto response.

    They later emailed me about 2 weeks after and said they'll forward it on to their engineering department, but no gave no hints at a solution. !

    Hi Rcbjr, can you help with this problem? Are there any setting I must alter in order for the program to work correctly? Any other suggestion other than already mentioned would be really helpful.
    Cheers
    Simon

    simonpinkney,

    I'm sorry, but I don' think I can. Which is why I've tried to stay out of it, except to welcome the new members. I don't have the Pearl and I have never had any problem with Google Maps for Mobile.

    Rcbjr.

    Mine works in the UK on Vodafone but didn't until I loaded the latest OS. Seems to have everywhere I need to find! A nice extra to the SatNav in the car which is great until you park up in the car park and then have to trundle off down the side streets!
