Default Google Maps and BlackBerry Bold - OTA Download

Please Login to Remove!

http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v2.2....jad?ver=v2.2.3

This is the same link you'd download from if you were on a Curve. Google obviously removed the capability for this to be downloaded OTA through google.com/gmm for a reason, however it is still accessible if you go directly to the JAD file.

Hope that helps for those wanting to avoid a Desktop Manager installation. Definitely the fastest I've ever downloaded and installed Google Maps on a BlackBerry.

I'm not sure if this has ever been posted before (doesn't appear to have been on this forum and I didn't look on any others), so if I stepped on anyone's toes, I apologize.

thanks for the link. It installed on my Bold fine.

I cant seem to get it working with GPS though. Its only using the cell tower estimated location. Has anyone got this version working with GPS?
