Default Google Maps 1.6 on 8800

Please Login to Remove!

I just downloaded the latest version of Google Maps (1.6) and I cannot get it to work.

When it is loading, it freezes at step 4 for along time (I can see it is trying to download data), and then gives me this error message:

Network Failure
Try Again Later. If it doesn't work, try installing a new version of this application.

I uninstalled and reinstalled several times with no success. -- I wish I could go back to my old version (1.54 or 1.58)...

Any clue?

Thanks

Downloade and installed fine on my 8100. It is a little slow but it seems that happens many times after loading a new version.

Yeah I know I like yahoo maps but it dosent pick up satellites as easily as google or bb maps. I dont have a problem with how fast google maps loads the maps just how fast it updates my location.

Hi there, I recently downloaded Google Maps 1.5.4 and I was wondering if uping to version 1.6 is worth it? Are there really any big differences? How but the ppl who have 1.6, is it worth replacing 1.5.4? Thanks!

i installed on my 8700g (TMO) and I like the new version. It has a new UI. Additionally, it seems a bit faster when loading the address / location.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830: BlackBerry8830/4.2.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105)

I do not know if its the timing with their server. I have it working and did it by overwriting 1.54. I was going to suggest to try again and also make sure to completely remove a prior google maps, so you have a clean install. Clean your cache. Reset again.
I may be just an issue with their server reaching all of the carriers

On the 8300 they seems to have REMOVED GPS support... so I would advise you not to upgrade if you have the Curve.

Dumb question, but how do I upgrade the version? I tried updating Google Services with Maps checked, but it says Google Services is already at version 1.3. Is there a Gmaps specific update link?

EDIT: Never mind, found it.

Correct. Bluetooth GPS has been restored to the Google Maps app on the Curve.
