    Google Maps problems/freezes

    Advertisement



    Has anyone else experienced freeze ups when trying to access google maps? I downloaded the google pack for the pearl, and all was running fine for hours, I played with google maps quite a bit. Now, after it working for 2 days only Google maps will freeze my pearl. I go to select the icon, and the unit just freezes. I have tried rebooting several times. It works off and on. Has anyone else had problems with google maps? I suspect it might be a cache problem, since google maps reloads from the point when I exited.

    Thanks

    Yes, ever since I installed the "Pack" from Google, my Pearl freezes. I uninstalled it and just installed the maps again separately. Works fine.

    Yes it was the same deal with me. When I installed the google services pack when more than one was instaled at a time it would freeze. Uninstalling and downloading them all seperate fixed everything.

    prior to installing the pack, it is definitely worth clearing down your BB cache. As Maps renders and caches quite a bit, it cache is filling up then the app will have issues.

    Has anybody noticed that Vodafone UK have written the IBS as a service. Blackberry maps on Vodafone devices will not work until the service entry is pushed to the device, useless bit of information

    Hi,

    Not sure if you have this rectified or not. For me my Pearl froze in a similar fashion. By using the Track Ball and clicking on Options, Advanced and TCP then entering the required information (in my case because I am with Telstra in Australia, APN: testra.internet, Username and Password left blank), then clicking SAVE on exit Google Maps worked very well.

    Hope this assists
