    Question Pearl 8100 BB Maps

    Advertisement



    Hi all,
    I have a Blackberry Pearl 8100, version 4.2.0.67. I have loaded BB Maps and also Google Maps. Google maps works fine (but sadly does not support GPS) BB Maps loads ok but no maps appear, horizontal lines just appear. GPS works ok as i can see that it is picking up at leat 10 satelites.
    Can someone help me resolve the issue with horizontal lines?

    I have not made any modifications to the TCP settings and i am Vodafone in the UK.
    Vodafone have advised me to use smart2go map loader to download the maps, is this normal?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the Stacks Bakerzone. Have you tried:

    1) Taking out the battery with the BB on then holding down the power button for at least 30 seconds before putting the battery back in, or
    2) Deleting BB Maps, rebooting and then reloading it?

    Hi,
    I am just trying the reboot after 30seconds.
    I have reinstalled BB Maps several times before posting as well, that did not help, same as before after the 30sec restart.

    Maybe i am missing something, is there another part of the application that i need as i have never been able to get any map on BB maps?

    I will try the new version of Google maps and see what happens on there.

    Tested Google Maps version 1.5.1, this works well although it does not appear to track the LIVE location.

    Any ideas on why BB maps does not have nay maps? Does BB maps download the maps on the fly via GPRS or are these installed as part of the software as 171k does not appear to be large enough for any map pack.

    Many thanks.
