Google Maps 1.63 http://www.google.com/gmm
from your BB browser.
You can download 1.54 here: http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v1.5....4+1&ver=v1.5.4
But maybe its not so simple so read the following.
FOR BLACKBERRY 8310/88XX (ANY BLACKBERRY WITH INTERNAL GPS) - you must use the Google maps "8800" installation.
Version 1.6.1 (Last version with "Find Business" and "Find Location" as options - has been replaced with "Search" in version 1.6.2 and on) http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v1.6....2&v
For different versions of Google maps for blackberries with INTERNAL GPS - just change the reference version to the one you're looking for. So if you're looking for version 1.6.0, the link would be: http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v1.6....2&v
FOR BLACKBERRY 8300 (ANY BLACKBERRY WITH BLUETOOTH GPS PUCK) - you must use the Google maps "8300" installation. http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v1.6....2&v
Same thing applies above - for different versions, just change the version reference in the link.
** You need to pay attention to whether you're downloading the 8800 or the 8300 version. The 8300 versions have "Bluetooth GPS" as an option, whereas the 8800 versions automatically use the internal GPS receiver.
*** For newbies - you have to download these with your blackberry browser. You cannot install these using your computer and desktop manager. Just point your BB browser to the appropriate versions, as described above. BBMaps 1.0.70 and 1.1.35 - Since Cingular partnered with Telenav this did not come loaded on the 8800c but may show up on the TM or other versions AS OF 3-21-07 YOU CAN DOWNLOAD 1.1.35 FROM www.blackberry.com/maps just be sure to use your BB browser and remove the spaces.
For 1.0.70 which is the pre 8800 version http://www.knology.net/~acidmax/blackberry/maps.jad
The BBMaps manual for the 8800 has new features like POI's and new views described in it. Here's the exact instructions for 1.1.27 from another thread but this apparently is not the version described in the manual.
Download and install Desktop Manager 4.2 Service Pack 2 from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22
(Cingular only has version 4.2 as far as I can see)
Download and install BlackBerry Handheld Software (v184.108.40.206 - firmware version 220.127.116.11) from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=577BCC914F9E55D5E4E4F82F9F00E7D4
(this is the same version as I got on the device, but...)
Once you've installed the firmware from step 2, go to the directory:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8800-v18.104.22.168_P22.214.171.124
and rename the file LBS.alx to LBS.alx.ORG
Download the file LBS.alx.txt from: http://www.blackberryforums.com/attachments/general-8800-series-discussion/7319d1172028882-bb8800-handheld-software-v4-2-1-109-multilanguage-lbs.alx.txt
(found in the post: http://www.blackberryforums.com/457179-post25.html
) and save it as LBS.alx in the directory noted in step 3.
Run Desktop Manager. The first time I did, it wanted to update the firmware - not sure why, but if it doesn't, just run the Application Loader. BlackBerry Maps will appear in the applications list unchecked. Check the box and proceed with the application loader.
BlackBerry Maps will now be installed. You have to turn on GPS under (Settings) Options --> Advanced Options --> GPRS and refresh your location if you're outside. In Maps (the name of the app), go to Options and make sure it had GPRS set to Internal GPS, and you may want to change the Disable Backlight... percentage from its default 100% of battery power!
One thing. There's a function to Copy Location within the application which puts a URL into the clip board which we assume is supposed to display the location you're at so you can email it to someone. However, it brings you to what we can only assume is BlackBerry Map's web site, but all you get is the home page. Guess that will work sooner or later! Telenav 126.96.36.199 for the 8800 and and 188.8.131.52 for the 8100,8700, and 8300
The .54 upgrade for the BB's without a built in GPS fixes and issue that existed in connecting to certain BT pucks. http://ota.telenav.com/ota/at http://ota.telenav.com/ota/tn
You can start the TeleNav GPS Navigator application by clicking the icon on the Home Screen. The first time you launch the application, TeleNav GPS Navigator will request you to grant certain permissions. Click to accept all of these and check the box so it doesn't ask you again.
