Default 8520, Google Maps not working.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all, I heard through multiple channels that Google maps won't work with the most current OS of the 8520. Does anyone have the time/know a possible solution? I was kind of looking forward to using the map feature as I do not prefer BB's native one.

9530 v5.0.0.419-took a dive into oil...
8520 v5.0.0.681-in the box
8100 - of retirement? lol

The 8520 doesnt have GPS, so you wont get a GPS lock.
Only cell triangulation.
Why is gogle maps not working? error message? refuses to load?

Mine works just fine with cell triangulation, but my OS is not the most current that is stickied at the top of the forum.
