I can't get it to even come up on my 8310. I'm doing a battery pull now to see what happens.

Laggings not the word I'm thinking. As soon as I click on Google Maps, I can't do ANYTHING else on it.

Kewl! Loaded on my 8310, which has GPS. But it nailed my location with the radio towers, *inside* my office building. Even shows you a coverage circle.

That's actually an approximate location. Watch the video on this page. The light blue circle is showing you the approximation of where you are. If it has you pinned down to a set location (via internal GPS), you will only see a small dark blue dot.

Do you have your internal GPS enabled? If so, you shouldn't be seeing that light blue outer circle.

Everyone's 8310 that installed it here turned into a brick when they tried to run it. Nothing responded at all and the only way to fix it was to pull the battery. Everyones removing it now and I'm pushing out the older version.

This is pretty cool. I have my GPS enabled on my 8820, but can never get a signal in my office building. The cell tower approximation nailed my location. It'll be interesting to see how it transitions when I go outside and pick up a real GPS signal.

I've got 10 of them sitting on my desk now that users brought to me asking why their BB's are frozen until they pull the battery now after loading it. Another 10 remote users have all emailed me asking the same thing. I have 1 of them that's been sitting on my desk waiting for the app to even come up after clicking on it almost an hour ago.
