- I can cause the green and blue effect by turning off the GPS and adjusting the zoom level to not show streets. That suggests to me that your GPS may not be working. Is the terrain representation changing as you move? Try changing your zoom level and see if streets appear.

- BBMaps should show streets, even if the GPS isn't working. I don't understand the problem. I assume you do have a data plan and are not using wifi. BBMaps has to have internet access to download maps. Is the terrain shown realistic? In my experience when BBMaps doesn't have data, it just shows a black diagonal grid.

- Well, you've about got me stumped. We've missed something, so let's review the basics. Exactly what version OS are you running? The full four fields, not just the last digits.
In Options / Advanced Options / GPS, what do you show for GPS Data Source? Do you have GPS Services set to "Location ON," or whatever the "not just 911 services" setting is called in 4.5?
In BBMaps / Options / GPS Source, what do you have? Do you show a value for Data Downloaded?12-07-08 06:46 PM

- Have you rebooted your device by doing a battery pull? Make a backup, then take out the battery with the phone on. Leave it out for about 30 seconds. Put it back. Among other things, that will force a rebuild of the indexes and reload the operating system into contiguous memory and may fix the problem.
After rebooting, see if BBMaps is now working.
If it's not, do you have any other GPS programs running? Alt-Esc will show you what's running. BBMessenger (if installed), Phone Log, Browser, Messages, and Home Screen will always be running. If anything else is running after the battery pull reboot, what is it?12-08-08 09:15 AM
- I've tried the battery pull and no difference and there isn't any other program running. I also forgot to mention that my gps is tracking where I'm going and it even tells me how fas I'm going even without it telling me what street I'm on

- Look in Options / Advanced Options / Service Books. If there is a bbmaps service book (I don't have one in os4.2), then delete it. Do a battery pull, go back to Service Books, press menu and Undelete. If it's a service book problem, that should fix it.
The only other step I can think of is to wipe your device and reload your OS. Something is either wrong with bbmaps, or with the OS or bbmaps.
