Can't open BB Maps app on Z10

Hi guys,

 

I've had my Z10 for almost 2 weeks now, and absolutely love it (upgraded from 9800 Torch).

 

A few days ago I wanted to use the maps app for the first time, but when I click on the icon the screen flicks slightly to the right, and the app doesn't open. I have the icon within a folder, and Wisepilot trial installed (this shouldn't make any difference?). As the Maps app comes pre-installed I cannot delete, and re-install.

 

Has anyone else experienced this, or have any suggestions on how to rectify?

 

With thanks.

 

BB Z10 STL100-2

Have you restarted the device and tried again?

A number of times. Just to 'double check', I've just pulled the battery. The Icon for Maps has now dimmed, and changed to a triangle, square, and circle. I'm assuming this is a default icon, showing there is a problem with the app. I still cannot update, or re-install the app!

I really don't know.  I would have to experiment.  You might first try deleting that other app just to see what happens.

Thanks Ira,

 

I've just tried that, deleted Wisepilot, moved icon back to home screen, pulled battery again - no luck. I'm hoping at worst case, this will be resolved at the next update. Unfortunately Vodafone UK can be slow on releasing updates.

If it were me, I would reinstall the OS.  That's all I know at the moment.

 

EDIT: You might try a security wipe before trying OS reinstall.

Thanks, I have considered that, obviously I don't want the hassle if I can avoid it. I may hold back for the moment and see if an update becomes available, otherwise it's a re-install.

Thanks Ira,

 

I've spent the evening backing up, secure wipe, reload OS, and restoring. The map app is now bak up and running.

Good news! I wish it hadn't come to that.
