What it really needs to do is auto scroll the info when driving so you can know what streets to turn on. That's the big flaw in bbmaps that needs to be fixed.

I have the GPS functioning and have the BB Maps program on my 8800, but when I launch BB Maps all I see are grids and lines - no map. What am I missing?

Thanks!
