To all that are having problems installing google map now, found a fix
everyone who trying to install google maps now and are being directed to a Android version this is another way around
download put it in your sd card and install it on your phone with the .jad file
in the folder there different version so say
blackberry-47 is for version 7
blackberry-46 is for version 6

After two days of frustration trying to find a working OTA site for Google Maps, this worked GREAT!! I'm sure this will save all those who have a Blackberry that are running into the Android-only install links for Google Maps! MANY THANKS!!!!!!

Many thanks. After 2 trial and errors, blackberry-43 folder worked on my bb 8100 os 4.5. Blackberry-42 folder - is for touch screen units. You have to extract all the files (jad and cod) into 1 folder then look for the jad file and click it to download the google map app (if you have a working bis plan). Good in my country because im on an unlimited bis plan ( $15.00 more or less depending on the forex rate) for 1 month.

Yep, while you can install it, it's unusable. Google isn't happy with BB10's popularity.Device(s):
Curve 9300> Bold 9700> Z10> Samsung Galaxy Note 2>Z10 #BlackBerryByChoice
Tablet: BlackBerry Playbook 32GB

I am not having trouble installing, it, When I open it and it tries to get the terms and conditions it says "Serious Error Occurred" and at the bottom "data connection lost." I also realized that Vlingo isn't working anymore either. I am pissed. What is going on here? It's worked fine for years.

Many Thanks !!!
Thanks a lot. I just installed Google Maps 4.5.3 on my Blackberry Curve 9320 running OS 7.1 in India using the files in the BlackBerry-47 folder from the zip file you shared. Got through the terms & conditions page with no issues and logged in using my Gmail account easily. Works like a charm so far.
Thanks a lot,

I have a sideloaded V7 of google maps on my Z10 and the only issue i have with it is the Sign in page that directs me to "Choose account" and when i tap add acount it just closes and takes me to the google map (where i was before selecting Sign in)
Besides that i find the app runs smooth and no bugs (i installed it over a week ago no issues with it).
Any know ways to address this issue? I.E. loging in to see stared places and etc from your Gmail account?
