Blackberry Maps is on mine. Don't know why you didn't get it.
Testing 6.0.0.333, profile not updated yet.

Did you do an upgrade, or clean install after wipe?

Did anyone else who did an upgrade lose it? Maybe I just missed a box

Responding to my own post - disregard above (aside from RIM message). Clearly I was too excited during the install and missed a checkbox on the application selections. I used BBSAK to install bb_maps CODs from the JAVA folder and all is well now.

Weird, I've done a clean install and an upgrade, both times Maps is still there.
Not very accurate though, type in actual address, still says within 194 ft.

My BBMaps is showing "your location within 6 feet". That's the best I've seen. Moving between 6 and 20 as I drove.

Maybe I didn't pay attention, but I just plugged in my BB and ran Apploader, it let me install BBMaps

I have. AND, I live on a hill where the phones (any brand) can decide which tower to use. This build is horrible for dropping coverage. Very poor in fringe too. None of the OS 6 builds have been great, but this one is pretty bad. They HAVE to fix it before this gets released.

Also, I've found this build to be very slow to switch the data connection to WiFi from 3G.

I loaded a beta copy of .280 that I found, and live in a rural area... On 5.0 had almost no signal at all at my house. With this build, I have 2-3 bars at minimum at my house now, so this 6.0 did wonders for me... So, there ya go.

Strange..on my calendar which I sync with my laptop I have two calendar entries for every item now. Looking at accounts for calendar I have two, default and my BIS account. I have tried changing the view to default but it doesn't stay that way.
Anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this?

Deleting my BIS account calendar entry under Service Books appears to have resolved this issue...but for how long is the question

This happened to me also on the initial bootup - a battery pull solved it without issue.

After a few months of using various OS6 builds, including hybrids, I continue to have issues with my Sprint 9650. I work in a Morton Building, and as soon as I enter, I lose service until I get close to a window. But during the time it takes me to get from any of our entry doors to my office, the phone goes from 1XEV to 1xev, and require a battery pull to go back to 1XEV. Never experienced that with any of the 5 series OS's, and one of my subordinates has .983 and never has that issue.
So I am biting the bullet, doing a wipe and switching back to .983.
I love the start up times, and the OS as a whole, but the radio issue is just too problematic.
I look forward to an official release.
