    Thanks. Done, nice and easy.

    Is there anyway to get streetview as well? (And if so will it be properly integrated with the maps app?)

    I dont think street view can be done. I'm trying some things right now though. Will check back. I would check the side load forums though. There are other people that have been sideloading this before me that would know the answers. This is my first time

    Streetview while driving? You mean turn by turn navigation I assume? Streetview is where you can see actual photos of the street and you can zoom in and out and swivel around.

    I have not found regular street view on it yet but I tried entering some directions/navigation. When it was showing the route it was on an angled map and the angled map was the "satellite" view. Havent found the ground level street view yet.

    Street view is in there, but you just get an error when you try to launch it. On Android streetview is a separate app that you need to install, but you can only launch it from within the maps app, so I doubt there is any way to have it work on BB10.

    Attached is what I get when I launch streetview.Google Maps on Z10-img_00000006.jpg

    Well, yes having Maps and Navigation is by far the most important. I'd like to have streetview as well as it comes in handy sometimes, but it's definitely far less important than the other two, so thanks again.

    I've been running Google maps sideloaded since last Wednesday. It's pretty decent but not stable at all. The voice is hit and miss as to whether it will work and it has crashed a few times. It really doesn't like it when you minimize it and switch to another app. And because it is an android port the ergonomics are a joke of course. I hope we get a native bb10 version soon but I probably shouldn't hold my breath on that.

    I can confirm that Street View works while in navigation but crashes in maps
