can't find google maps!

I have the new torch. I have been trying to get google maps on my phone. I keep downloading it, and every time I do it says I already have it and do I want to replace it. I say yes and go through the whole download, reboot, and then I look for the application. Its not in downloads or applications. Any suggestions?? Thanks

1. On your homescreen, press the Menu key > SHOW ALL, so that SHOW ALL is checked.
2. Look in EACH folder or tab on your device... Applications, Instant Messengers, Downloads, etc.
If you still don't see it, look at Options > Device > Advanced > Applications. Do you see it listed there?

Re: can't find google maps!

If, after following step 2 of JSanders's suggestion, you see that it is indeed on your phone somewhere, you might consider going to your Downloads folder and selecting Google Mobile App.  If that icon is there, you'll find your Google Maps in there.
