    Question Error when trying to install google maps.

    Advertisement



    I go to www dot google dot com /gmm on my 8100 and there is a link that says "Download Google Maps for the Blackberry 8100" But when i click that I got this error message: Error: Invlaid manifest or application description descriptor.

    The "MIDlet-Name" attribute is missing.

    Anyone know how to solve this problem? I have been searching around for an answer but have not found any.

    Thanx for any help.

    Do a hard reset (pull battery for 30 sec) and you should be all good.

    Re: Error when trying to install google maps.

    Actually I tried Google Maps on my Pearl last night and I am having issues. My old Pearl with the old OS had it and it worked just fine. My replacement Pearl I just got wont work with it. I can download it just fine and install it. When I launch it, it says it needs to access and restart my security timer and access phone records like all the other apps I have DL'd. Well when I select an option that screen stays on the top of of my screen and I cannot get it off. Power cycle would not work I had to hard reset it. That would bring back my main screen but when I launched it the same thing happened. I deleted the app. Any suggestions?

    uninstall good maps. go to options. applications. delete it. and try and re-install it. thats all i can think of. i had the same problem with my 8100 when i had it. and that worked let me know how it goes if not ill see if i can get you a ota link to download it. also check your status and see how much memory you have available

    I use the 8100 and have the lastest AT OS, and I have never got google maps to install at all? It is a new device, and when I go to this google url to install it I got the error in top of this thread.

    Re: Error when trying to install google maps.

    I can´t download anything from url above ? On that page it only says that I should go to that page with my mobile unit? And that is what´s not working for me .

    I have free space enough.. and still got this error message when I click "Install google maps for 8100" ?

    The only thing on this url I can download on this url above if for windows mobile, and it is a .cab file?

    What are you using for your browser Emulation?

    Go under your browser Options and change the emulation to IE or something else maybe that will help.

    Emulation Mode under browser options says "Blackberry" and I can not change that?

    Re: Error when trying to install google maps.

    You're looking under Browser Configuration right? Under Emulation Mode you should have six options.
    Blackberry
    Openwave (wap)
    Openwave Gateway
    Microsoft IE
    MS Pocket IE
    Netscape

    Do you not have this?

    Re: Error when trying to install google maps.

    Ok so now my GM is working. Not sure what made it work but these are the things I did.

    1. Changed from iphone theme back to stock ATT vendor theme
    2. Battery pull to reset the phone.
    3. Downloaded Gmaps from the link above.
    4. Changed the Emulation to IE
    5. Ran Gmaps and BAM its working.

    I find it odd because with my previous Pearl, all I did was DL it and install and worked fine. No changing the Emulation, however, the old Pearl DID have the old OS this one has the new.

    Thanks Reddog for your help.

    :: EDIT :: I went back and changed my theme back to the Iphone13a theme and Gmaps is working just fine. It's either changing the Emulation to IE or the Gmap god were not happy with me :-) but it's working whatever change I made. :: shrugs ::

    Re: Error when trying to install google maps.

    I appologize if this is slightly off topic but what is the advantage in using Google Maps over the BB Maps application?

    Thanks
