thanks mujch ganappa. glad to hear it's working for you on your 8820. i went ahead and tried downloading from the page you gave. the download seemed to go ok; then i was told to reboot the 8820, which i did. when i went into the 8820's applications, i did not see yahoo! go. so, i gave the "show all" command. then an old yahoo! go icon (from an older, hidden install) showed itself. l launched from that icon, chose US English, then watched something about Donloading and Configuring, then eventually got this message:
Sorry, Yahoo! Go encountered a problem during start up. Please restart Yahoo! Go.
a restart just looped back to the same message... argh.
i wonder if there is a need first for me somehow to uninstall the old, nonworking version of yahoo! go from my 8820 before i might be able successfully to download from the location you have now given me. unfortunately, i don't know how to do an uninstall, so i'm not able to test this possible fix (which may be a dumb idea)
thanks again and any other thoughts gratefully received. i can use google maps, but i don't like it as well as the yahoo! go i used to have working on my 8800, and now can't get working on my newer 8820. (random thought: wonder if any of the carryover our tech guys did from old handheld to new might somehow be hanging me up.)
