Default need to move Amaze 4.5 from 8110 to my 8120???

Please Login to Remove!

After my 8120 got an app 205 error, I obviously had to reinstall the phones software which was fine, got the latest now, but lost Amaze 4.5 and only could get the new v5, enough said.

I have since realised that I have a working version of 4.5 on my 8110 that I would like to use.

Does anybody now how I could transfer that onto my 8120? Is there any file management programs available to suck off the actual files need for Amaze v4.5?

I have tried restoring selectively from an 8110 backup as expected, no go due to it not being an 8110
any workarounds ???

...I might add that I only use this offline for the turn by turn navigation.

You could try using the device switch function of Desktop Manager which might sucessfully transfer Amaze to the 8120.

the ALX and COD files for 4.5 are still available for download if you spend a minute with Google but i seem to remember that Amaze downloads the t & cs etc when you first run it so it may try to update to the later version.

One question,how do you use it for turn by turn navigation offline?As I understand it Amaze downloads maps and directions ota so won't work offline.

thanks mate, yes they do enforce the update before running the program.

I just like the DEMO option which you can slow down or speed up, depending on where you are. That part actually still works for some reason.

I'll try the switch method in DM....worth a shot. I wish BBmaps had some sort of turn by turn navigation. It's pretty good. I like it better than GoogleMaps for it's offline map storage options etc which allows you to create and customise your area of interest (VERY handy here in Australia, as I have hybrid maps for the forestry/bushlands for four wheel driving in areas of zero coverage) and the tracking (on mobile and web) which traces your path with great detail at intervals you can pre-determine.
GoogleMaps is fantastic and I would be willing to pay a fee for it if they still provided BT support. I wish they'd offer simple turn by turn also.

I find that a lot of people have had problems running MGMaps while GoogleMaps is also installed. I have rebooted many times and have not run into any problems with it automatically uninstalling MGMaps...is this because I have MMaps (the GoogleMaps removed version of the afore mentioned) installed too. MMaps seems to share the same files for favourites and setup configuration?? So when I use MGMaps for the YahooMaps when I can get coverage, I need to toggle the offline setting before use. Google maps are better in my opinion, especially the hybrid info.

I haven't been bothered to get the Yahoo maps working in offline mode as yet, actually I haven't had any success with them, but the offline Google tiles are working fantastic with BBmaps, so why bother (-;

cheers for your help Woodyuk.

You're welcome Steve.

There is one other thing you could try,Telmap sat nav are still looking for Blackberry Beta testers and Australia is one of the countries on their list so you chain rattlers are eligible to try it.Now the only handsets listed are the 8900,9000 and 9700 but the 8900 version works with no problems on a friend's 8310 so you never know, you might get lucky and it'll work on your 8110.It's a really good system with voice guided turn by turn directions including the name of the next street to turn into.it's free to join the test so you might be as wel to have a look at it and see if it will work on your Pearl.

Details are here

I hope this helps,Woody.

Steve..
Amaze 4.5 has finally forced me to upgrade to 5, I have been using it on my 8110 (which had it originally loaded before I was using my 8120) so I'm without turn by turn GPS navigation again.
Does anyone know a good voice navigator that works well in Australia??
....what do I need to do to get Google Maps to do the turn by turn voice nav? does it even do it?? I would consider paying maybe..

thanks
