I had the same problem and solved it this way
A lot of us are having the same problem but I managed to get mine back up and running by downloading the jar files and adding them to the SD card and installing from there.
The files you want are http://www.google.com/mobile/hosted/...eMapsPull.zip: Unzip the lot and move them to the SD card, go to Media, Menu, Explore Media Card and look for the jad file. There are a couple of versions on that file, all of them v 4.5.3. I tried a couple until I fell on the right one that worked.
I hope that this helps you out.

Google isn't very smart. They think if people want to use there products they will all switch to an Android phone.

Google Maps ...
Same here ...
I tried also with a previous version ( 4.5.2 instead of 4.5.3 ) ... from
The only difference was that at the first startup it asked if I want to upgrade to the new version 4.5.3, what shows me that it had Internet Connectivity to check the version.
I skipped the upgrade option... and on the Terms & Conditions Screen same serious error. Before the error occurs, I can hit the Blackberry Button, but he only gives me 3 options, show keyboard, switch aplication, and "decline" ... no option to "accept" ...
Then I tried to start Google Map in Flight mode, all connection disabled, to see if I could get locally past the T&C screen, without success.
Next I enabled only WiFi connection, which gave a new screen, saying: This aplication requires a data connection....... please visit www.google.com/gmm on your computer for more info...
but this page doesn´t exist anymore ...
My shoot is that they removed the /gmm page, which held part of the T&C info for the BB app, and that´s why it bails out.
Accepting the T&C probably sets an flag in a local file of the Blackberry devices, which gets lost when a device is wiped, and with the /gmm page offline it doesn´t get enabled again.

V3 - V4.5.3
This really works fine - thanks a lot for this post. And after installing V3 - open it - agree to terms and conditions - close it and update to V 4.5.3 - and it still works fine! That was exactly the solution I was looking for.

thanks for providing V3......I had no idea what was going on with Maps until I checked the forums.
I also can manually update to 4.5.3. It works but the shortcut symbol looks old, somehow broken and isnt animated anymore.
Google Maps stops working when you reset it via help menu -.- brings up the serious error message again.
When I open Maps V3 theres no auto online update (is that even possible?)
