BB Curve and New Map Features

Does anyone know anything about this with the Curve 8320??


  • New! Local search – Looking for a cup of coffee? Nearest hospital or post office? Locate your options within a 30-km radius**. Enter a search term like ‘pizza’ to view a list of places to grab a slice.

    Located here on the bb site.




    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: BB Curve and New Map Features


    Lots of people on this forum are using this app. My carrier is Verizon and unless I but their navigation package,

    my GPS is disabled. Make sure your is enabled other wise the app won't function correctly.

    If your GPS is not enabled get Google maps (free) it will use GPS but augments it with triangulation with cell phone towers. It's not as accurate (3000 meters) but it has some other great features.

    Check with your carrier to make sure your GPS is enabled.


    Hope this helps!

    If you need anymore information please ask, if not please resolve the thread using the options over the Kudo's star.
