I have a Bold 9700 on T-Mobile. I installed Google Maps 4.0.1 and attempted to set the permissions. Upon submit I get an error, "The permissions were not set correctly. Please try again or set them manually"
If I try to set them manually, I do not have "allow" as an option for most items, I can only select deny, prompt, or deny. The blackberry is on a BES, but I am the BESAdmin, and my blackberry is on a completely non-restrictive IT Policy.
A while back there used to be issues with Google Maps and application control policies...if I recall it was due to whitelisting apps. I had a bluetooth keyboard application control policy that I was a member of in order to get the keystroke injection enabled for the app and it messed with the policies. Do you have anything like this?
No, nothing like this--in fact I am in a completely blank policy--All default. I will try refreshing to a new OS, then installing the app before I re-activate on the BES just to be certain its not a BES-related issue.
We have 2 BES servers, one is 4.1.6 which google maps works on (tour), and 5.0 which maps does not work on (also a tour). We have almost a default policy on the 5.0 server. Does anybody know what needs to be tweaked policy wise to make this work?
Same problem as everyone else - I can't set the Allow permission to allow the newest version of Google Maps to run. Being one of the Exchange and BES administrators, I can assure you that we did not set any policy that keeps a user from setting a Third Party permission to Allow. For the time being I am directing our users to completely remove 4.0 Google Maps and revert back to 3.2.1 Google Maps.
1) Switch your Browser to BlackBerry Browser as the default
Open browser - options - change Browser=BlackBerry Browser and Bowser Identification=BlackBerry
2) Enter this link in your phones browser: m.google.com/maps/download/maps.jad?dc=gorganic&ver=3.2.1
3) Once downloaded and installed, you will need to set the prompts to Allow/Never Ask Again
