    I know the Google Play store was made possible on the Passport a long time ago thanks to Cobalt. However some of the apps wouldn't work because Google Play Services wasn't downloadable.

    I am just wondering if that has been changed at all or is the situation still the same?

    With Cobalts work arounds your problem will be solved. That I know from forums, I didn't use the patches.

    I was using Google maps but all of a sudden it only shows a black page when I open it...I think some work well and some don't.

    I haven't been able to find where he explains how to fix the lack of Google play services issue yet but I'll keep looking. Thanks.

    If you follow all his instructions on the first page of his thread, you can get just about any Googe-dependent app to run. I have Drive, Docs, Hangouts, etc all work on my Passport. The biggest PITA is updating apps that need to be patched because that takes time and a PC. My need for Google apps for work and the inconvenience of patching the apps is the biggest reason I'm looking to switch to the Priv...when the price at Telus drops.
