Having or not having GPS doesn't affect one's ability to d/l and install Google Maps. In fact Google Maps doesn't even require GPS in order to work properly. It can approximate your location by pinging nearby cell towers.

The one thing it does require is a data plan. I'm assuming you have one? Otherwise it sounds like a network related issue -- check your TCP settings for your respective carrier.

Again you don't need GPS in order to use Google Maps.

You have an 8110. The OP has an 8100.
