Default loaded 4.5 OS now lost GPS icon

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, just completed downloading os 4.5 0 1 87, all ok except 'maps' icon has gone. DM 6 backed up and reinstalled all other apps and messages well.
i have been to 'status' and done the test, it finds Sats and my position ok.
under advanced options; maps, it says default service 'none'
All was working well before the upgraded os.
Any suggestions appreciated.
i have no data plan, Asda Mobile. 8310 curve.
Thanks, Crafty.

Maps require service book I believe, from OS4.5 on. So you need a blackberry plan. correct me if I am wrong

Thanks for your reply,
i see from my 'Applications' 'Blackberry Maps' 4.5.0.
i have a 'mapping application for BB'. version 4.5 with 3 modules, net_rim_bb_lbs, then _api then _resource_en.

i have never had a BB plan and it worked before on OS 4.2, i have a supermarket sim. I got the impression it was downloading maps live, not from a data base in the phone.

It is downloading maps live, via a data connection.
With OS 4.5 a blackberry data plan is required to use blackberry maps.
Asda do not offer this.

Thanks for your replies, I have now tried downloading Google maps. It is on my SD card saying GoogleMaps.sisx 1.5MB.
I can't seem to do anything with it, if i press open, it says 'unable to display file'
Anyone got any ideas please?
Thanks, Crafty.

.sisx is a nokia file, it won't load on a blackberry.
You need a .jad or .alx, as you won't be able to download it over the air to get the correct version.

OOO right, thanks. Any idea how i get the right file please? i usually have more success downloading new apps to my computer first, then using download manager.
OTA always seem to go wrong.
Google Help offers a desktop version, says download it 'here' then when you get 'there', nothing is there GGRRRRRR.

Unfortunately Google only seem to do direct downloads by visiting here:
m.google.com/maps

But I'm unsure it will work because you don't have a blackberry data plan to be able to use the blackberry browser.

True. Must use native BlackBerry browser to do OTA installs. No can do with aftermarket browser.
