    If it has been updated im sure its already on the site somewhere here and i just couldnt find it.

    Anyways i have G maps on my storm and it is alway way off. I know others have mentioned this before. My dad recently Downloaded the app on his storm and it is spot on accurate. Plus the UI is slightly different. Like how you zoom and what not. Is there a newer version somewhere? I tried reinstalling the app from the google site and it is the exact same crap edition i had originally.

    Anyone else have this same problem or have you been able to find a working version?

    Google has clearly stated that Google Maps does not work on the Storm using GPS yet. Only cell tower triangulation.

    You probably don't have the GPS turned on. Goto Options > Advanced Options > GPS and switch GPS Services from "E911 Only" to "Location On."

    If it was already set to "Location On" then the only other thing I can tell you is to make sure you're outside with a clear view of the sky. The GPS cannot acquire satellites indoors.

    For Verizon, Google Maps and GPS don't work. It works for AT&T and possibly other carriers.

    I think someone said it does when you are running BB Maps, but no one has produced ANY proof of this. And even at that, it's a little redundant to have BB Maps AND Google Maps simply to get GPS. You could get Nav4All, but it won't be as pretty.

    i cant really check his because im in UT and hes in GA and i cant really just ask him because hes a i little IT ******** but ill see if i can figure out next time i call.
    So if you do not have the GPS on it will work fine just using the Vzw network? If so then that's prob what was going on.

    and by the zoom thing he could zoom by taping one of 4 little bars more like the online version use to be like if you remember that. The app i have you just click either a plus or minus magnifying glass.

    That sounds more like the Blackberry Maps rather than Google Maps.

    I would post the link to the Google website where a Google Tech clearly states that it won't work.... but crackberry doesn't allow me to post any link since i'm a "new user"

    ok haha thats prob the case. He was using BB maps and i didnt even noticed. He said it was google maps (accidentally i guess) and just thought it was a different version since i have not really used BB maps before.
    Thanks. and sry that was a totally useless thread.

    I know some of you already know this. But for those that don't, Google maps will work on the storm with gps if you shut off the cdma portion of the mobile network. Go to mobile network in options and switch it to gsm. once your conected to a different network, i.e. att. Then go to Google maps, its a little slow for the gps to get started but after about a minute, it begins to use gps. I don't believe any of the data works though while connected to other networks.
