Can only download google maps 2.3.2 on BB 9300

[ Edited ]

Hello - just upgraded to BB 9300 3G curve, and want to use Google maps with GPS, but only seem able to access Google maps 2.3.2 from m.google.co.uk/maps - which does not support GPS.  Once downloaded 2.3.2, and opened, I am prompted with a "upgrade to 4.4 is available" but when I select the Upgrade option, it reverts to the browser, and picks up the 2.3.2 version.

 

Can anyone help me?  Seems like I am being barred from accessing anything other than version 2.3.2.

Also, I note that the 2.3.2 version that is downloaded is 'unsigned' and so the icon does not show as Google Maps. Does that add any useful info to help anyone solve this?

I found a similar post on...http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Google+Mobile/thread?fid=02ac0ae652c36e940004957a19e10bf0&hl=e...

A reply that was posted there from "The C Man - Top Contributor" that said...

"If yours are BES phones (company supplied) then some company IT department do not allow later versions."
Mine is so perhaps that might be the reason.  I'm going to speak to my IT department on Monday and see if they know anything?

Mine is a BES company provided one too.  I tried to get to advice on Friday, but failed.  I am too suspicious that it worked on my old BB 8800 on the same company provided BES, so I feel it must be something else....

I have exactly the same problem - I even had a different curve 9300 last week, on the same carrier, and i could get v4.5.x!! it worked perfectly. but now on a replacement 9300 (the trackpad on my original one was faulty) i can only get v2.3.2. and likewise it says i can get v4.4 but it takes me to the v2.3.2 page, and likewise, it is unsigned.

 

It can't be a carrier issue can it (vodafone)? As I had a different version only last week on what should've been an identical handset.

Is it something at google's end?

 

Can anyone help?

 

Mine isn't enterprise server, just a normal one...

Re: Can only download google maps 2.3.2 on BB 9300

Some one else on the Google forum suggested the following.....

 

Just FYI - I fixed the issue in the following way. Note that i have a 9300 enterprise activated with my company's BES server.

1) Downloaded the Blackberry desktop software version 6 and connected my 9300
2) Downloaded the Blackberry enterprise installation for google maps and extracted to my desktop
http://www.google.com/mobile/hosted/maps/binaries/L1/4.4.0/GoogleMaps.zip
3) Used the 'Import files' option on Blackberry desktop software to import the alx file

Re: Can only download google maps 2.3.2 on BB 9300

I have just done much the same to get mine working - I downloaded the apps from the above link and then put the 'GoogleMaps.cod' from the 'BlackBerry-47' folder onto the phone using a JavaLoader.  I had to do it this way because when I tried to load the alx file using my version 4.6 of Desktop Manager, it kept telling me that the device had no space available.  Apart from repeatedly asking me to allow the http connection, it is now working fine - including integrating with the internal GPS.
