    Hit menu, and it should look like a map and a compass...

    Otherwise, while in menu, hit menu again, and select unhide applications...

    Thank you... I hit menu and hit "show all" still no blackberry maps. Do I need to install it for somewhere?

    Alternatively, 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.

If I go to that link and try to install, the web page comes up and says "Sorry, your device does not support BlackBerry Maps at this time." (I suspect it's more like "BlackBerry Maps does not support your device at this time", but that's not what it says.)

    I'm curious: Does anyone with a shiny (albeit fingerprint-covered) new 8800 actually have BB maps running, and if so, was it installed on your device or did you download it, and if so, how?

    Thanks.

    dkozinn,
    I think you got fed a line of BS as I have a 8100 (cingular service) and BB Maps works just fine on my BB.

    Are you 8800 owners sure that you need BB Maps? I thought that the 8800 had GPS?

    BB Maps download is not yet supported. I did however find a post here (2 days ago) that allowed me to download BB Maps to my 8800. I can't find the post right now, but it's here. I'll keep looking.

    Apparently I'm not allowed to post links here.

    Email me at 't e r i b h a n n [ a t ] h o t m a i l [ d o t ] c o m' and I'll forward the link to you.

    I also have an 8100 and the 8100 does have BB Maps. The 8800 doesn't. I trust the expertise of the person who told me that it wasn't available, who is a RIM regional technical manager associated with the Cingular business line. The organization that I work for is a rather large customer of both Cingular and RIM, and, to put it mildly, it would not be in their best interest to "feed me a line".

    The device has GPS, but GPS alone only gives you a position. It's up to the mapping software to take that information and plot it on a map, where it's more useful.

    Re: Help! No Blackberry Maps

    So the phone is equiped with the GPS hardware but no software comes installed to use it? And the cell phone companies are selling it like that? Even harder to believe is that people are buying it like that.

    That would be like my pearl having the camera hardware but no software to drive it?

    HHHMMMMMM.....
