    Google Maps New Version 1.5.4 is Available

    Advertisement



    I don't know what the changes are, since I haven't used it yet. I hope the Favorites problems are fixed with the T-Mobile Pearl version. When I press the number that corresponds to the Favorite (4,5,6, & 8), it pans the map instead it the direction. So before, when you create a Favorite with version 1.5.3 in slots 4,5,6, & 8 you can't do anything to the favorite after it's been saved unless you delete all the app data.

    I really hope it's fixed, it's such a great app, but there are still some much needed tweaks. I hope Windows Live Search would add GPS support to much it a much nicer app, like on the T-Mobile Dash.

    Go here with your BlackBerry to download: www.google.com/gmm

    Anyone, please post if you see anything new on the refresh.

    None that I see some far. Probably just some infrastructure changes. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I know there is some kind of issue if you have the google 4 pack thing installed and you try to install goog maps over that. Do to third party section. There is a thread with a ton of apps. It beaks down how to get goog maps not to crash with the newer versions

    So that was the problem?

    Does the app even work if you deny setting changes to occur?

    I just checked and the Favorites issue was fixed! Woohoo! My faith in the program has been restored. It wasn't a necessity, but just really irritating to not be able to edit my Favorites after they were created.

    Window Live Search is a fairly nice, but it lacks GPS support like Google Maps and BB Maps. It does a great job searching for businesses after you set a start point. Here's the link if you want to download it and try it out: wls.live.com ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
