Default BB Maps Installer 6.1 issue

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, i re-installed my BB Maps because I can't find its icon.
What I have now in Application Management is BB Maps Installer.
It won't allow me to install it.

Any help will be appreciated. TIA.

OS v6.0.0.570, platform 6.6.0.212

I'm having a similar issue. I just received a 9700 in part to use for satellite navigation, however, the BB Maps icon doesn't show up despite being installed (and re-installed). I have set all permissions to allow, and it still doesn't work. The GPS function is turned on and working, and a couple of other apps seem to work with the GPS, but BB Maps does not. I have also tried Google Maps, which installed fine and shows up, but when I choose it I receive the message "Network Unavailable: This application requires a data connection, and some BlackBerry devices require reconfiguration to work properly". I do have a data plan which works for other apps (Facebook, for instance), and I have also tried BB Maps and Google Maps at home when connected to the wireless network, which made no difference. I am running BB OS 6.

You need a blackberry data plan, not only a data plan.
Also, the seviceprovider you choose must not disable blackberry maps. Before ordering a blackberry data plan, ask them if blackberry maps is supported/availible.

If you go in the options/settings von the blackberry main screen, the, advanced, then: service books: what servicebooks are listed ?

The blackberrymaps (lbsconfig) is the service book, which is needed for bbmaps.
