Default Blackberry Maps on 8800 OS: 4.5.0.52/4.5.0.37

Does anyone have the service book that will make this work? I currently can't even see an icon for the application. Although it is loaded.

The only way is to load the older version of BBMaps. This thread will help:

have you guys tried Live Search by Microsoft? It gives both GPS enabled maps as well as direction with live tracking.

Interesting. I have a Sprint 8830. Upgraded to the latest 4.5 beta and BB Maps still shows up for me. And it runs just fine.

Tomcat: Where you able to use BB Maps with Verizon prior to a 4.5 upgrade? Verizon users report that BB Maps doesn't run, since Verizon disables GPS access on their BB phones.
