    Don't worry about it, we are here to help, unfortunatly there are no DM installs for it, all google apps are OTA installs

    EDIT: And welcome to both of you to the stacks! :-)

    You would also need a Data plan for google maps to work.

    Thanks for the answer. I figured it was only OTA. And thanks for the welcome.

    Not for the blackberry. I have GPS software for my PDA and the entire USA is about 2.4gigs worth of data. So it's pretty obvious why cell phone GPS makers opt to just stream the local area over the air rather than store the entire country all at once.

    New Google Maps Won't Paste

    Without being able to paste an address on a new search, Google Maps is utterly worthless. I've got an address book full of addresses. The old Google Maps would let me paste any address just fine. The new one won't.

    So now I have uninstalled Google Maps. I'm not going to re-type addresses already in my address book. I'll just use BlackBerry's map feature from now on.

    I have a question, I installed Google Maps through Google's Mobile Updater, now in that list it says next to the app "Reset Required" but I have no idea how to reset the phone (BB Pearl 8100). I've been looking for a bit now and can't seem to find anything related to this.

    I've reset the phone before after installing something through a browser link, but I'm clueless on how to do this as there appear to be no options to do this manually. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.

    Urgh... no built in way to reset without removing the battery, great. After searching stupidly for a bit, I found this application which resets your phone for you, seems to have worked for me:
    SoftReset

    How to reset

    There is probably a keystroke combination, but I don't know what it might be. I always just pull the battery to do a reset. Pushing the metal thingy on the back with your thumb, use your other hand to gently slide the back panel upward. Be careful not to break any of the four retaining legs on the black panel, because if one or more are missing, the panel falls off easily. Once the panel is off, pop out the battery even for just a second. Put it back in, put the panel back on, and you may have to press the red on/off button on the front. Should do a reset.

    Does holding the power button down constitute a reset?
