    maps?

    Advertisement



    i just updated my bb and all works fine and i seem to have an extra icon in one of the folders it the folder where messanger is.
    the icon is a compass and says maps but when i click it, it opens to a kinda grey/green screen with a grid. and thats it no writing or maps or anything just wanted to know is this maps only for the usa or will it work in the uk as well?

    Re: maps?

    If you wait a few seconds for the grids to load, it brings up a "global" map with crosshairs. Use the trackball to move around. On my 8700 the Blackberry Maps application does allow me to go all over the world.

    Re: maps?

    I am not sure that the Maps works for the UK yet. You can view when zoomed out, but you cant get any detail when zooming in on an area.

    Re: maps?

    I have a friend that lives in the UK, and since he's in my Address Book, with his home address, I was able to view a "map" to his general area. It wouldn't get as specific as his actual home address, but it did get me to Rainham, Essex. Don't know how helpful that would be for users in the UK who probably know where they're going in general and need specifics, but for someone like me... lol.. who can't find thier hiney's with both hands without a map.. it's helpful

    Re: maps?

    Littlemojo,

    Have you tried Mobile Gmaps? http://www.mgmaps.com/

    It is a mobile app that displays Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, Windows Live Local Maps and Ask.com Maps.

    I have tried it and it works well on my 8700g. I don't have it installed right now (takes up a lot of room). You might want to check to see if one of those 4 Maps in the program give you what you're looking for in the UK.

    Re: maps?

    Make sure you download the version with reduced functionality because your BB does not have an internal GPS.
