Does BlackBerry Maps operate normally?
Which device and OS version?
Can you open the log (<alt>LGLG) and paste the contents of the exception here?

Ah. Yep, desktop manager should allow you to re-add it. I'm trying to figure out how to launch Google Maps with location data.

Cool nice app

I have a blackberry 8830 and did the ota install. It works I can see the tower that I am using but not the map info. I am with VZW also. I guess I would have to have navigator to see locations? It would be great to find exactly where to point my yagi antenna. Any suggestions? thanks in advance.

This app will work with Verizon, if you have VZ Nav running in the background. Works great so far!!!

Without VZNav you have no gps functions. This is stated in the OP.

Sorry JC, must have missed that. There always seems to be some controversy with VZ Nav and allowing 3rd party apps to use the GPS, so I just figured I would post that I personally have had success.

I found one bug... if network connection is off, it will crash with java null pointer error.

It then keep trying to get information, so it's not a "hard" crash like bbweather does when profile doesn't exist.

Otherwise it's a nice utility app.

Hmmm. I may have to add it for testing as well.

Got it. It'll be fixed later today.

I installed it this morning, very nice and informative app.

However, I noticed that even though the GPS info screen showed me as not moving, my coordinates kept changing and my elevation kept getting higher and higher and higher (no, I was not going up an elevator). I'll play with it more and see if that was a one-time thing.

Any chance it will eventually work with Google Maps? I really don't want to have BB Maps on my phone unless I need it.

It's an artifact of the GPS error. Even when you're stopped, you'll appear to be moving around inside the sphere defined by the vertical and horizontal error. The GPS Details page displays exactly what the GPS is reporting. On the main page, I suppress the speed and course when the speed is < 1m/s.

I was working on it last night but it's not looking good. The only documentation I can find on how to start Google Maps with landmarks requires me to upload the list to a server, then start Google Maps with the network URL. I'm still investigating though.
