    Firs off, thanks for all the info. I have been lurking and find this site to be a great resource.

    To make a long story short; I've been having problems with the GPS function of my Storm.

    I was on the phone with tech-support and he told me to erase and re-install the program (not just the service book). I was hesitant as I was afraid I would loose the program completely. But as I would likely have to DOA the phone anyways, I did it.

    I should have trusted my instinct. BB Maps is now erased from my Storm and I cant think of how to get it back.

    Anyone have suggestions? Links to a download source? Able to copy the program from their Storm and post for me to download?

    Thanks gents.

    I have a similar problem with my Storm. During transfer between old BB and my Storm I lost several programs which included Maps. I was able to reinstall by using the desktop software add/remove applications area but now the GPS functionality is gone. I have Maps back on the device but no option GPS features (including turning on and off the GPS).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply. I gave this a shot, but it's not even an option for me to add/remove. It is non existent on DM.

    The tech-support person had me delete the application completely from the device, so it is strange the DM does not have it.

    Applejuice1 did you try the link on the BB site?

    Do a google search for blackberry maps. It's the first link. I'd post in here but I have less than 10 posts so it won't let me.

    Hitting update worked... Thank you!!!! and sorry for my lack of knowledge.

    Any wisdom/insights into the broader problem our fellow poster FritterFratter and I are having, with GPS not working with BB MAPS?

    I am running .76
