Blackberry Maps for Playbook


I really love my playbook...even though it has limited apps..., But one of the main draw back is, Poor maps solutions.


Call it, google, bing or Nokia maps....Everything sucks..!!!


Why Blackberry didn't include the BB maps in the software update? When it is available for the phones, why can't it be on playbook?


Any RIM guy can give us some real answers and some hope???!!!

I like Google Maps on the Playbook... works good.


I have a feeling that in a few months when BB10 is available for the Playbook, BBMaps 'should' be available, BUT I DO NOT know that for a fact.

That's a pretty comprehensive list. Not much left, except you missed Apple maps, now they really do "need some attention". (avoiding your unpleasant 'merkin phrase).  Not having a phone that has more than a numeric keypad I haven't seen Blackberry maps, are they better?


Seems such a waste of fuel and effort and aviation time for everyone to repeat what Google have already done just for competitive advantage.  Build a new street and they all have to fly over it again (on a sunny day of course, not cloudy like Apple did. Couldn't see half of England)
