maps shorcut on menu missing


I have loaded Blackberry maps onto my Pearl 8110 and in the GPS info in advance settings it says:

GPS Data Source...Device GDS

GPS Services ... location on

Number of satellites....6

and it gives lat and long co ordinates

Location aiding enabled.

But I cannot see it in the main menu.

I have unloaded and reloaded through desktop Manager and I have a memory card inserted and regognised.

Have I forgotten to do something ?

any help would be appreciated.

Re: maps shorcut on menu missing

Hi john111,


Please contact your wireless service provider to confirm that your data plan includes services for BlackBerry® Maps and also to confirm that they support BlackBerry® Maps. Some carriers offer their own maps solutions instead.
If the application is supported and the correct services have been added, please verify that your BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8110 smartphone is running the latest version of BlackBerry® Device Software.
Please verify that BlackBerry® Maps is listed in Options > Advanced Options > Applications.
Open the browser application on the BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8110 smartphone and navigate to www.blackberry.com/blackberrymaps. Select the Download Now link and follow the instructions on the screen to complete the download.


Hope this helps.
