I'm close to the OP's location (regionally). What's the catch?!! I'm also checking with someone in India and will update later.

Even I thinking that may be it's country issue, they might not be providing there maps services for BB in this region any more. Is the any other way or any other site from where I can download Google Maps on my BB 9530.

Hi

Have a look at this post on the Google Maps product forum. It may help; I have not needed to use it (yet), but it seems to have worked for a number of people.

Re: Google Maps is no longer for BlackBerry Phones

Hi anaadiidubey,

 

I've check with one of my brother in India who is using Aircell network. He is also getting all the links John, Alex and I are getting. If he press on Google Maps he is taken to the download page of app version 4.5.3. I guess there is no problem with that link.

Re: Google Maps is no longer for BlackBerry Phones

Try this link on your BB device:

http://dl.google.com/dl/mobile/maps/BlackBerry-47/GoogleMaps.jad

That is the direct link my 9810 uses for Google Maps when I use the initial URL I posted above. I can't guarantee it will download the proper version for your device but you're welcome to try it.

It's the same as John provided.
