Default Problem with BB Maps

Please Login to Remove!

I can't get the BB Maps to "Map from Address Book". When i launch the program, I go to MENU and hit MAP FROM ADDRESS BOOK. it takes me to my CONTACTS list. I highlight the contact, then click MENU and choose either VIEW WORK MAP or VIEW HOME MAP. What comes up then is SEARCHING 128 PAUL AVENUE. It does not have the city or state. I get an error message that says: COULD NOT FIND STATE/PROV.or COUNTRY. Then I click OK and it takes me back to the contact list.
All my contacts have the streets, towns, state and country populated correctly. Any ideas as to the dilemma?

Same here... wish they would just let you use the Google Maps application for those requests.

You may need the zip code too. I tried to enter xxxxx High School, Peoria, AZ and it couldn't find it. It can find contacts with the zip code though.

I was just playing with that and found that I had to enter the country (USA) in order for it to find the addresses. You might try that.
