Is the default maps on the Storm 2 9520 Google ?, if not can I download Google maps and use them on the phone instead of the default maps?

Re: Maps

The defaut maps are the Blackberry maps which are very good. Yes, you can download and install Google maps.

Re: Maps



every BlackBerry device is shipped with an application called BlackBerry Maps.

It is the default application meaning that for some applications you have a link to open it directly with a click (for example : when viewing a contact information, you can display the location of their office).


you can install for free Google Maps.
