They don't have the .zip file up for the BESAdmin's to download it, does someone have the files they can zip up so I can try to push it out to mine from the BES? I can't even download it from by BB anymore.

And it seems like many of the issues with the 1.6.x builds are gone - Calling persmissions and other bugs.

Holy Cow! It posted my location when in my home as just down the street from me about 1/8th mile away. Here's the kicker. I don't have radio tower signal here at the house. I am UMA only. In fact, EDGE/GSM drops right about where it has my approximate location tagged... That's amazing; it must grab some kind of cache of where the last known radio spot was!

p.s. I'm on a 8320 with TMO (no GPS) and I didn't wipe older version of Google Maps. Just installed the new and check OK for http connections for Googles Maps....

Does anyone have the alx files since I can't seem to get them off the site? I have people screaming at me because it's not working for them. I just talked to another admin at the suite next to us and he said they are having the same issues also.

I am really, REALLY, loving the updates for this application! Google Maps was great (IMO) before this upgrade, but WOW!!

The searching and updating the maps (zooming in/out, pan) is faster, too!

Excellent job, Google!

No issues here with it on my 8310/AT&T.

Works good all except placing me about 1/4 mile from where I am.

When I opened it up, the entire screen was blue with the circle and the dot. I figured out that it has me out in the ocean. I live a few miles from the shore.

ok this is screwed up, after trying at least a dozen times, it finally loaded on my 8310 and 2 more. But the rest is still timing out. I wish they would post the zip files at Google Maps so I can push it out from the BES.

Works with my AT&T 8100.
Inside the office building, is show it is with 1400 meters. With the satellite view, it shows my location as the parking ramp next to the building I'm in. I can see the parking lot out the window.
