Did you edit the LBS.alx as described in the first post of this thread?

Really this is all for not if you don't have a data plan. With no data plan you won't get any maps. They require a data plan.

You must have missed a step in there somewhere. It works on all the newer BB's from att.

i did that already and it's still the same.. is it because i dont have a data plan with t-mobile? i can subscribe to tmobile's bb unlimited add on for 19.99 but they currently don't support the 8310 and im afraid that if i add the plan, it wont work..

I have Google map, Telenav and Nav4all, all of these apps do not show where I'm located as I drive so when I reach an intersection I have to select continue. With my Nokia N95, it shows where I am as I'm driving and it was free. Kinda disappointed.

Do you have an 8300 or an 8310?

If you have an 8310 go to Options >Advanced Options >GPS and make sure you are getting a GPS signal.

If you have an 8300 then you need a bluetooth GPS puck as there is no built in GPS on the 8300.

I know that it is possible to install BBMaps on a 8700 with a Bluetooth GPS, I don't know if you can do it with a 7290

In any case, you won't need the above procedure to install BBMaps on your Blackberry
What does this mean exactly? How could I get GPS to run on my 8700? Thanks for your help!

This thread isn't for GPS. It's for how to unlock the BBMaps program that is already installed on AT&T BB's but is hidden. GPS is another feature that works with BBMaps. Your 8700 doesn't have a GPS receiver integrated with it so you'd need to purchase a bluetooth GPS receiver in order for it to work with BBMaps.

OK I've edited the file and ditched the vendor file... I still don't see my BB maps which I'm bummed about because I like them!

Do I need to reinstall the software? I'm on 4.2.1.79 on a Cingular/AT&T 8800

** EDIT ** The BB Maps aren't even in my application list...
