    Does anyone know how to transfer your collection of "My Places" in BlackBerry Maps, from one BB10 device to another BB10 device? I recently did a full device switch using BlackBerry Link, to switch from a Z30 to a Classic. All my apps from the Z30 were nicely installed and setup on the Classic, but when I load BlackBerry Maps on the Classic and look at My Places, I see nothing. No recents, no favorites, just completely empty.

    I didn't expect that the device switch would not have copied the BlackBerry Maps places data over. I think the ability to transfer these places locations would be really useful, especially if you built up a collection of many addresses. It would be a major pain to re-enter all of these again. There must be a file somewhere in the file system which holds all this data, but I haven't found it yet.

    Has anyone done a device switch recently and checked if your BlackBerry Maps is set up the same way as the previous BB10 device?

    What I've done is save "my places" or my favourite locations addresses to my contacts.

    That way when I transfer my contacts over my addresses are transferred too.

    From there just open maps and there's a tab under my places call "contacts"

    There needs to be improvement on the integration of this as the maps app doesnt allow saving directly on contacts right now but it's a work around.
