    Smile BBMaps Email Location

    Advertisement





    Has anyone used BBMaps to locate a person in their Address Book and then used the menu to email that location to a person? I tried that and emailed the location to myself, but the link that was sent didn't do anything. It looked like it had Log & Lat numbers to display something but the website that the link went to doesn't seem to do anything.

    Any ideas??

    BradB, Welcome to PinStack.

    Can't really help with this question as I don't have a Pearl, but wanted to Welcome you to the Stacks. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.

    Thanks Rcbjr! I guess the real question I have is has anyone ever got a map location from this website link. Maybe it's just not quite ready yet, but I hope it's ready soon. That would be a cool capability.

    From a PC the link doesn't show the map, but on the Blackberry it will open up the map

    I didn't try to open it from my BB. It might be detecting the browser and doing something different. Great catch! I'll give it a try to see if I see the same thing.

    I confirmed that the BB does open it. However, the location is not identical to what I had set when I sent the email. But, I guess the answer is that this is good for BB to BB and the link will not work on a PC. At least I'll assume that until someone tells me otherwise.

    I think you could probably use the LAT and LONG and copy and paste them into other apps/sites if you have a need to do so.

    All the above statments are correct! I am using the app on my 8703e also and I can send locations to my friend with an 8100 but not to a PC.
