Default Can't find any maps on my new BB 8900

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone, i need your help.

I just bought BB curve 8900 and cant find the way to make gps work.
In the GPS option the settings are all correct i guess (device GPS-location ON-Location aiding is enable)
And when i clicked on MAPS to enter a diretion or something, the only thing i can see on the screen is DEFAULT SERVICE : NONE :(

So i dont get it;i tried to refresh the GPS several times and for long times outdoors without any success.

Hope you can help me as i'm totally new in the Blackberry family and would like the gps to be working!

thanks in advanced

hey Greg, I have the same problem, I guess we can't access maps because we have no data plan.

Map data is not stored on the device, it is downloaded as needed, hence the need for a BB data plan. Check the GPS & Map section and read the yellow sticky at the top. It has reviews of most of the map applications for the BB.
