    Have you checked to see if the icon is hidden in the new theme? Have you checked to see if it's still installed on your BB by Options: Advanced Options: Applications

    I don't quite understand - are you saying that the entry in the applications list is gone when you switch themes AND/OR connect to DM? Also please update your profile with provider, device, OS version, location, etc. It helps users respond to your problems more accurately.

    I don't know of that one - maybe a support pro or device expert has the answer.

    Find and edit the LBS.alx

    <!-- For 8800 series, hide the icon for AT&T (102), Vodafone Germany (124), Vodafone Austria (137) and all Orange properties, including Amena (Orange Spain - 175). -->
    <!-- For non-8800 series, show the icon for all carriers except AT&T (102), Vodafone Germany (124), Vodafone Austria (137) and all Orange properties, including Amena (Orange Spain - 175). -->
    <fileset SystemSize="normal" Colour="True" Java="1.0" _vendorID="~102|124|137|119|162|142|183|147|217|17 5" series="~8800">

    If here is your Vendor-ID listed then delete it save the file and try again.

    UPDATE: Here's Red's info from the blog:

    How to: Get BB Maps on 8310

    AT&T hides the icon. They want you to use the Subscription service Telenav.
    Also these carriers hide it. Vodafone Germany (124), Vodafone Austria (137) and all Orange properties, including Amena (Orange Spain - 175).

    Here's how to get it back.

    Follow this path
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8310-v4.2.x.xxx_P2.x.x.x
    Find the LBS.alx (make a copy of it and leave it there)
    Open it up the orginal
    Type CTRL+F and search for this net_rim_bb_lbs_ribbon.cod

    You should see this right above what you just searched for.
    <fileset SystemSize="normal" Colour="True" Java="1.0" _vendorID="~102|124|137|119|162|142|183|147|217|175" series="~8800">

    Just delete the 102| that I have highlighted in red above.
    Save the file.

    Now connect up your BB and the Launch the Application Loader and make sure it's checked and load it up. IF that doesn't work just use the OTA download on the www.mobile.blackberry.com site to install it.

    That should get it back for you.
