Re: blackberry maps

Hi,

 

You can use google map for navigation...normally gps dnt work when ur inside a building but it works fine when ur outside...when outside, and u open the google map, it will automatically will find out ur location and will show it in the map through a "blue dot "...now u can find ur way to any destination, search for place say ATM or any particular address...

 

You can see the blue dot moving as u move, that means it shows the almost appropriate position of u(say with a precision of 1-2 meters)...like if ur standing on the left side of a main road(wide road), u will see the "blue dot" on the left hand side of the road in the map too... 

with regards
simply abhik...

Re: blackberry maps

The BB map was not working on my phone after updating the software to 7.1.0.1647 (bb9790). Then I deleted it and try to download again and now it says it is not compatible with my phone. Please help
