I was not aware that there was a full finctioning app for the playbook. I see from the previous post that there is if you want to pay. I wonder if android tablet users pay anything?
I believe that's a third party app developer that made a plugin for Google Maps. The actual Google Maps with navigation is free on Android tablets. I have a Motorola Xoom and it has all the bells and whistles with Google Maps and it's free. I just wish Google would re-write an app for the Bold 99xx series as the tiling has made the fonts for the street names way too small for anyone to see. They've been stuck on v.4.5.3 forever!
