Hey navigatorix,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Thanks for the question.

 

What countries are you missing from BlackBerry Maps?  Also what version of BlackBerry 10 are you currently using?  Go to Settings>About to find this information.

 

I look forward to your reply.

Re: Blackberry Maps Eastern Europe

hello navigatorix,

this page states that Romania is covered by BlackBerry Maps.

check with your Vodafone hotline if your account is allowed to use BB Maps.

Re: Blackberry Maps Eastern Europe

Vodafone says it is allowed. There are no limitation in downloading anything. with Z10 , there no more BIS or anything, just plain internet traffic. via 3G or wireless.

 

i tried also searching for addresses and it says cannot reach server ... any permissions needed?

Re: Blackberry Maps Eastern Europe

Well, open the app, it searches the current location, finds it, says the bit about map data not available and that's all. I'd shows the country outlines with Bucharest as the capital.

I can search for addresses in usa or Germany and those are shown correct.

Re: Blackberry Maps Eastern Europe

Yes, în the countries with available maps I do. For the eastern European block there are only the name of the capitals. If I țipe in romania, it gives me 2 results: românia alone and romania, bucuresti the 3rd result is from Turkey-beeing the closest place with available maps.

Re: Blackberry Maps Eastern Europe

Hi,

 

I'm writting from Poland and I have same issue (maps are unavailable). The issiue is related to Blackberry 10 OS (I'm using Z10 device). Is the Blackberry company looking forward to bring maps for the rest of Europe?
