Yeah...the app runs OK; it's just the text size on the streets which is too small. You can see it for a split second while zooming in and then it re-adjusts to the small size. Again, Google claims it's because the map data is tiled together so there's no text font size to adjust. For some reason, the 9930 cannot display those tiles in an acceptable range. They have a million updates for Android (of course) but not for other platforms.

BB Maps isn't too bad but there's no traffic info. I am trying out BB Traffic but it doesn't display any maps. More of a turn-by-turn GPS application only w/o the map.
