Google Maps

I recently deleted Google Maps from my Blackberry when my Latitude quit working.  Now I can not find any place to re-download the app.  Did google stop supporting it's map app for Blackberry?

Re: Google Maps

Interesting. I used to download from www.google.com/gmm and from m.google.com but neither have BB apps anymore. it seems they are now only offering it for Android.

Re: Google Maps

Not much you can do when they pulled it. It's gone.

Re: Google Maps

How are you sure that is the case?  Has google posted anything confirming it no longer supports Blackberry?

Re: Google Maps

They discontinued some other BlackBerry apps too, like Sync. Also, I checked with some other folks who have confirmed it and it's pretty apparent since it's gone from the site:

Hi halroprillalar

 

 

                            Have you tried this from your BlackBerry Browser browse to http://m.google.com/maps and see if that helps.

Re: Google Maps

Thank you, Prince.  But, yes, I have tried that.  It redirects to an android download.

Re: Google Maps

Ok, so no more Google Maps.  Anyone have suggestions for a replacement app?  Is there anytthing (free or not, doesn't matter) that even comes close?
