Default Google Maps Mobile and the Bold - pixel rendering

Please Login to Remove!

GMM on the Blackberry Bold renders the street names very small. Why? The screen on the new Bold has a higher resolution than the Curve. This means in the same space GMM is rendering the maps much smaller and for older people they just can't read it. I struggle with even my reading glasses. The Curve has a resolution of 160 pixels per inch both horizontally and vertically (320/2=160 and 240/1.5=160) the Bold hav a resolution of about 213 for its 480 x 320 screen. Zooming doesn't change the rendering of the pixels and the street names are very small and difficult to read.

While the screen is very sharp I find the text to small. I have made a suggestion in Google Groups.
