    Question BB Maps on 8800

    Advertisement



    I cannot install BB Maps on my Cingular 8800. Everytime I try it tells me that the device is not yet supported. How have others been able to do this. Help!

    Thanks,

    Welcome to pinstack. If you go to mobile.blackberry.com it may be there.

    Also, it took me about three times to install it on my 8703e. Same message.

    Thanks - I just went there and BB Maps isn't even listed for download.

    I have been going to www dot blackberry dot com/maps (I can't post URL's as a level one member) to try and download it - but no luck after many tries. I tried downloading it from my BB and from my PC.

    I'm really suprised by this becuase I was totally under the impression that in an effort to support the GPS feature that BBMaps was going to come pre-installed on the 8800's!

    I was told by Cingular that since it is not a Cingular product, it was not pre-installed - but who knows if they know what they are talking about.

    I read that others had been able to install it and wanted to know how they were able to do it.

    It Really appears here on the 8800 site that it's supposed to be included as a feature. THAT'S REALLY MISLEADING RIM!!

    Why wouldn't RIM release it as a download for 8800 users is what I want to know. What if Cingular DID give it to us and we had to do a wipe and didn't have the program to reinstall?

    Well to be honest to Cingular, People aren't really supposed to have it yet.
    Maybe we'll see a download for it tomorrow.......

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Does anyone have another location where I could find bbmaps. I am running into the same problem. I was searching for a couple of hours lastnight trying to find a place to download it for my 8800.

    I can't imagine that RIM would that much more time to get it the download up and running

    You can download Google Maps OTA via this link - http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v1.4....00_v4_0_L1.jad

    It works perfectly on the 8800.

    Does anyone know when BB maps will be supported for the 8800? I've seen it working perfectly on the Pearl. How come it doesn't work on the 8800??

    Has anyone been able to get the bbmaps installed from the web on a pc via the instructions?

    I too am getting the unsupported error on my Cingular 8800.
