Re: Use of Google maps

Are you using the Google Maps app?

I don't understand what you're saying "dont let me type the address". If you touch in the upper left search box, does the keyboard not pop-up?

Re: Use of Google maps

That's exactly the problem, no keyboard response, no pop up.

Re: Use of Google maps

Yes, maps.google.com is a bit flaky. Somebody suggested a workaround before...

Lookup the address/search terms using google then click on the Maps link to filter the search results. That should bring send you to maps.google.com. Pinch-to-zoom doesn't work so you have to use the slider instead.

Also, using a fresh session and clearing your cache first before doing the search helps when things become unresponsive.

after clicking in the text box, can you try invoking the keyboard by sliding your key from the bottom left corner of the PlayBook bezel to the center ? It works for me.

Re: Use of Google maps

I'm using the Google Maps app in the Playbook AppWorld, the search function with keyboard pop-up and the pinch zoom on the screen works great. You might want to try using it.

Re: Use of Google maps

is there any more info regarding Google Maps on Playbook? Am I not allowed to use it because of an agreement Rim has with Microsoft?
