My Z10 BB map does not render while riding on a commercial airplane. It shows the moving my location dot on a white screen. I have another app that lists coordinates, speed, and direction so I know it is receiving satellite signal and can accquire a GPS fix. My 9800 can do this.

Unbelieveable, BB maps must have a network connection and it will not function with standalone GPS reception. I just tested in airplane mode. GPS does work. Maps does not. Serious degradation from OS6. I'm glad I know this now before going 50 miles into the the bush beleiving my Z10 would be my GPS mapping tool. This could even be a problem using the road navigation and driving someplace without cell signal. Blackberry should post a warning about this.

My 9800 BB maps shows location and movement with out a network connection using GPS signal only. It does require network to navigate point to point. I need to find a map app that will do this on Z10.

The Z10 will show a dot and movement without a data connection, but it will not show a map. This is the same as the 9900 or any legacy BB and it is the same as Google Maps on my Nexus 4 and Apple Maps on my iPhone. If you want an offline navigation solution then I suggest you download one of the many offline navigation apps in BlackBerry world.

So OS7 behaves the same as OS10. Yes, I will try an offline map app. I want one that will keep up with the times and have the ability to transfer all my locations when I change devices. Now if I can find one that will recognize my OS6 locations, I will be happy.

Mireo Don't Panic maps app is my solution. Paid app with offline maps. Has turn by turn voice. Supports multiple languages. Easy UI. I haven't tried it on an airplane but confident it will work. Best part is it will accept coordinates for points on the map. My favorite places in OS6 BB maps shows their coordinates. I can type these into the Mireo app and have my old favorites on it. Manual transfer but it works.
