    Question World Maps for Blackberry 8800

    Advertisement



    Hello all,
    I just moved to Saudi Arabia.
    My Blackberry 8800 with Cingular service isn't working here. That I am taking care of by getting it unlocked.

    My next concern is GPS functionilty on the same. Presently all it's giving me is diagonal lines across the screen.
    Help needed in getting the world maps for blackberry. Any ideas.
    Thanks in advance.

    I think you should have a word with your new service provider and ask them to send you the new settings and service book. I hope I am right.

    If you're getting a prepaid SIM that won't help unless the carrier offers Blackberry data (not just a standard EDGE/GPRS data plan) on prepaid. I've never had any luck with getting BBmaps to work reliably even though other GPS apps have worked perfectly with the same OS and hardware. Good luck with it!

    Have you tried google maps with gps for the 8800 blackberry? I have it installed and works like a dream. Of course you first need a working Blackberry account from your carrier (contract I believe, not prepaid)
    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    google maps does not have high quality maps for many countries.
    It's not your BB, try the web version of google maps and it'll be the same.
    I'm from Bahrain and we have the same issue
