    BB Maps and Address book?

    Advertisement



    When using BB Maps I am not able to map from the address book. If I manually put the address into BB Maps it will come up just fine. Any ideas on how to correct this?

    I guess nobody knows what to do.
    That is a rare thing to see around here.
    Maybe i'm just missing something small.

    I haven't used BB Maps in a while, but check and see if you can map an address while in the address book. It should be near the top of the menu in the address book. You might also want to check while you're in BB Maps if you choose menu, you have something labled like "Find it", "Find Location", or something similar. I remember something in the menu opened up another menu, and you could map from the address book there.

    I can go to my address book, hit the menu button, select view home or work map, and it can not find location. same problem if i go to maps and try to view a map of a contact it won't do that either.
    The only thing that does work is i copy from the address book (pen and paper, haven't tried the copy paste)and enter it into the maps.
    just to many rings for me to jump thru.

    I loaded BB Maps on my device again to verify what I said earlier. As you can see from the screen shots, when I open the menu from the main screen, one of my choice is "Find Location". When I select that option, I get the next screen, where the address book is one of my options.

    Have you looked at Options>Security Options>Application Permissions to make sure that BB Maps is allowed access to your user data, which would include the address book?

    If that fails, you might try removing and reinstalling BB Maps.
