For the 8320 I use this:

http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v1.6....4&dc=Web_exp02




This link should work for the 8100, too.

From my post in another thread:

Thanks to BobJ on the Google Maps forum, a link to 1.6.4 has been found:
Google...

1.6.4 has an active link that does indeed load the earlier Google Maps on BES 4.5 BB's.
I just downloaded and installed. Not as robust as v2.2, but it will do for now.

That link installed 2.2 for me.

I posted links for installing Google Maps 1.6.4. There's not much else you can do unless you can convince your BES Admin to do something about it.

Those links don't work for me.

The one for the 8320 works as it's what I use all the time. As for the 8100 link, I just guessed.

Yea, I'm trying the 8100 one. Must be something different. Thanks though.

John pointed out to me in another thread that my link did not work. Not sure why, but if you go to the original post on Google Maps group and scroll down to BobL's reply, that link should take you to the 1.6.4 download site:

rjhughes, it was just in the way you were copying the link. Here is the link from the Google Maps forum:

Default Finally!!!!

Finally got GMM 2.2.0 to work....and got it to work on three different users, with two different OS versions.

4.5.0.37 and 4.5.0.42 on T-Mobile Curve (8320)


This week we patched our BES server to SP6.

On the BES, for the users we tried to fix, we set the Assign Software Configuration to NONE


Waited about 10 minutes for the change to sync to the device.

Went to the Options - Advanced Options - Applications on the Blackberry.

Select Google Maps and Edit Permissions

and set PHONE to ALLOW


Now GMM works as designed.

It appears that any application config prohibits the Allow setting, however even without a config and Phone set to ALLOW, this did not solve the issue until we upgraded the BES to SP6.

read the same with some screenshots (www.torbenator.com/2008/07/24/Blackberry+OS+45+And+GoogleMaps+220+Problem+Solved .aspx)


Can anyone replicate this on their BES server?

This has been documented already. Once you set it to none, you can load the app. It works like this on all versions of BES. You can even set the Software Configuration back and GMM will still work.

Hopefully they will get this fixed soon as I don't think admins want to do this for every user.

I am not sure then, I had set the options, while named differently prior to SP6(see my confusion on top of page two) but I still could not get it to work.
As soon as we upgraded, my GMM started working.

I can only guess we were WAY behind on patches on our server, unfortunately i have no way of verifying this now.

(re link....for some reason there is a space before the .aspx, when i edit the message it is not there )

Yeah, I see the space now. I didn't notice it. The forum does that for some reason and I've no idea why.

Our Admin has us on a Software Config for my bluetooth keyboard and for some ribbon icons for some job related sites that we access a lot. This would require the admin to remove the software config (set it to none,) load GMM and then set it back, correct?
