    I lost the ability to search for addresses (about time i upgraded the os) so i deleted and reinstalled, nothing. So VF NZ suggested security wipe and try from there. No icon at all, it says the installer is there but how do you make sure it is actually installed?


    PS I added BB Protect, possible cause?

    It should show up in your Application Management list.

    Options>Device>Application Management

    (that's if you're on OS6)

    FWIW, I also have BB Protect installed and I am able to search for addresses with no problem. Sometimes my Maps program has difficulty finding my location.

    edit: are you sure you haven't hid the icon in the tray? Hit the BB key and click "Show All" and see if it pops up. That's if you saw the app in the Application Management list.

    Listed in apps as "maps installer" v6.1, show all doesnt bring it up either.
    Is there another launcher?


    Tried this launcher http://www.gln.bz/ads.nsf/bbmapslaunch.jad
    says uncaught exception: could not start internal application.

    I just downloaded Google Maps for my Pearl too, I got it through the Google Search App. I will try and find a location that hosts the download for you. It's a much better piece of software than the Maps program included with the device.

    Navigate here with your BB:

    Google Maps

    you should be able to install it from there.
