Re: torch issues

I'm using google map now and is by far much better than blackberry map however I can't find the function to save the favorite location so that you won't have to seach every time.


Does any one knows if this function is available at all?


On Black Berry map instead i have another problem: when I set the map to "Track up" as soon as the map changes for any reason (let's say I zoom in or zoom out) the map goes back to "North up"


anyone got the same problem and a solution?

Re: torch issues

I am having this issue too... GPS works in Google Maps but not Blackberry Maps. When I click My Location it just says 'Your current location is unknown' and the circle next to the magnifying glass is greyed out. I guess thats a My Location shortcut button? well I cant press that anyway whatever it is..


It doesnt even attempt to search for GPS the error just pops straight up. However in Google Maps it works fine Smiley Sad I just want it to work!!

Re: torch issues

I have a bit of a differernt problem. My BB Maps does not even load properly. It finds my location (witihin 7 meters) but I all I see is the green circle and the rest of the screen is blank. Essetially the rest of the map with its entire topology is not being shown. Seems to be some kind of refresh or cache issue. Secondly I am trying to download Google maps. But the download keeps failing - it timesout. Is this a problem with the ISP then? Help please? Where can I download the latest BB maps from? Can I do that?

Re: torch issues

Just downloaded OS 6 for the torch. Had to reload Tivo programming, but now it says that my device does not meet system requirements - anyone else having this problem?
