This has been out for a little bit now. I also replaced Google Maps with this. I like the interface better.

My bad. Didn't see anything about it until today. You are right though the interface is a lot better than Google Maps. Overall not too bad at all. Still weird having a Windows program on my Blackberry.

I could eliminate Beyond411 if they had a "Add to address book" option.

I'm on a Verizon 8830 and the program seems to be getting stuck on the "GPS receiver initialization" screen. Anyway to bypass this?

This has replaced Beyond411 in my books. Much better GUI than Beyond411(did B411 even have a GUI?). If only this had weather integrated in it somewhere, i could get rid of BBWeather as well!

anyone else go from beyond411 to WLS?

After using both apps for a few weeks, I noticed that the Google Maps search was much more complete. The Live Search was just not comprehensive enough.

I do prefer the UI of Live Search though.

This looks great! Unfortunately it won't install on my Pearl. After I installed it I received a module not found error. After trying a battery pull the app is no longer installed, the icon is gone and it's not on the application list. This has happened twice. I've never seen anything like it.

Default Can't get Live to Open

When I try to open this program I get an error message: Module "live_search_l" not found. Any thoughts?

Did you restart your BB after installation completed? I have had several errors after install and a restart cleared them up.
