    Default BlackBerry maps update

    Just in case anybody hasn't noticed, blackberry maps has a big update and it's pretty good.

    Hmm. Try a few times. There have been times where I had to do a manual check multiple times.

    Really? I find it more accurate, faster and I can't remember if it had it before but there is traffic.

    It does seem faster and more accurate except for that I don't see any changes.

    Noticeable changes I found with the upgrade:
    Map scrolling is smoother and faster
    Added traffic colours
    When bluetooth to my car the commands mute the streaming music and the music comes back immediately instead of waiting 10 seconds or so.
    Nice upgrade.

    AppWorld does that all the time for me. When there is no update, I get the red star. When there is updates, I get nothing Nd need to search for the update to show up. Interestingly, I also get an notification at THAT time, which is kinda useless.

    Default Re: BlackBerry maps update

    I downloaded the latest map upgrade.
    What I do like is that this map is simple. It's not bogged down with unnecessary things I don't need or want on a map.

    I just wish they had put a North symbol for direction on the map.
    It would be easy/ confusing if I didn't really know where most of what I am look for already on the map.
    Hello IT, Have you tried turning it off and on again?

    All I need now to be happy is transit and walking directions. Cycling directions would be nice, too. Not a small set of features.

    If only BlackBerry had map data available for all countries. Map data was available on my 9900 but not on Z10.

    It's very slow to open the first time. After that it's fine again.
