    My apologies if this is in the wrong forum. I'm using a Blackberry 9300 with OS6, however I put this topic in this forum (rather than the 9300 specific forum) as I think it's a more general question.

    ...Basically - a few days ago did a security wipe (because of phone problems). Since then I've been unable to download Google Maps. A search reveals that Google no longer support the Blackberry.
    Is there anywhere else (or does anyone have) the Google Maps files can be downloaded from? (The. .cod files I think).

    Failing that - is there a (free) alternative? (I'm basically after something that can be a back-up to my Sat-Nav (e.g. when I need directions and I don't have my Sat Nav with me).

    You can't.

    Because your BB6 software is far to old and it supports only apps with Java Applets software.

    Google Maps originally came from Android (APK software). With conversion to BAR software. Only BB10 end users are permitted to run Android apps like Google Maps.

    However until I wiped/reformatted my device Google Maps worked fine. So I was just wondering if the (old) version is still downloadable from somewhere?

    But you have to fins an OTA server which has google map and google doesnt support it anymore so dont expect updates

    When you go to maps.google.com in your phone's Internet browser, are you prompted to download Google Maps? That's how I used to get it on my Torch 9800.

    I still can't get Google Maps to work.

    ... but I've come across BBMaps (BBMaps - BlackBerry) which seems to do what I want.
