Bold 9900 map frustration

How does one get rid of "Your location within xxx" when using the map app on the 9900.   Sometimes it disappears and other times it just stays there interfering with the view of my location.   Is there a way to turn this nuisance off?   It's not that important for me to have the accuracy of location.   My 9780 doesn't have this problem.

 

Is there another map app I can use.   I thought Google maps was available for the 9900.

 

Suggestions greatly appreciated.

Re: Bold 9900 map frustration

I guess there is no solution to this dialogue box annoyance.  And  it appears that no one else is bothered by it.  For me, even I though I love the 9900 keyboard and e-mail I will be looking at other solutions -- maybe a dedicated GPS car unit. or other phone.
