diagonal lines when launching BB Maps

Hi,
I'm doing an application using BB maps API but when i test my application on my blackberry bold 9000 with o.s. 5, all I can see is a circular cursor and a screen full of diagonal lines. The same appens when i launch the Blackberry Maps application, even on the simulator.  Is there a solution to my problem?

Re: diagonal lines when launching BB Maps

In my experience, this means that the Maps application cannot contact the location server to download its map panels.  This requires a BIS or BES connection, so if you are on the simulator, you'll have to make sure that MDS-CS is running to provide the BES simulation.
