Storm 2, OS .607, BB Maps not working properly

I recently got a Storm 2 9550. Verizon is service provider.  BB Maps was working OK when I got it.

 

Last week I upgraded to 5.0.0.607. Now BB Maps shows only a yellow screen with no maps. I have tried everything I could on the boards, reinstalled a couple times. Still no luck.

 

Anyone have any idea?

Re: Storm 2, OS .607, BB Maps not working properly

I "had" the Verizon .607 OS but the BBM Groups keyboard and Google Maps freeze after search glitches had me go with a hybrid OS.  I had no problems with Blackberry Maps with .607 however. 

 

When you say re-install are you referring to the OS or maps?

 

Note to self:  change OS info in signature.

Both, I deleted the MAPS app, then reinstalled it.

Then I did reinstall the OS update.

Re: Storm 2, OS .607, BB Maps not working properly

Storm2

 

BB Maps worked perfectly when previous OS loade (.43x). Since upgrading to OS .607, BB Maps only displaying diagnol lines. It picks up the satellites and can show the speed and your "location" (red dot), but cant actually bring up the map to provide context to the location.

 

I have tried the following, with no result:

1. Hosting table update/Service book send

2. Location aiding on/off/on

3. Uninstall and re-install BB Maps

4. Changing default browser to "Internet browser" (was Blackberry browser)

5 Looked on about 5 million message boards....

 

Programs that do not use BB Maps (e.g. Endomondo, Google Maps), but access the GPS module all work perfectly fine.

 

All programs relying on BB Maps for a map reference has same error as for BB Maps.

 

Its driving me crazy. Does anyone know what can be done to sort this out?

 

thanks

Re: Storm 2, OS .607, BB Maps not working properly

If you are still running OS .605 you are behind in upgrading OS. There have been a number of upgrades. Check at the stickied post at the top of the 95xx board for a listing of the official releases.
