    blackberry-47 is for version 7
    blackberry-46 is for version 6

    etc etc

    After two days of frustration trying to find a working OTA site for Google Maps, this worked GREAT!! I'm sure this will save all those who have a Blackberry that are running into the Android-only install links for Google Maps! MANY THANKS!!!!!!

    I also had a backup of Google Sync & Google Voice saved BBH-Tools in the past which I found a life-saver.

    Many thanks. After 2 trial and errors, blackberry-43 folder worked on my bb 8100 os 4.5. Blackberry-42 folder - is for touch screen units. You have to extract all the files (jad and cod) into 1 folder then look for the jad file and click it to download the google map app (if you have a working bis plan). Good in my country because im on an unlimited bis plan ( $15.00 more or less depending on the forex rate) for 1 month.

    Thanks for giving it a shot. No longer works though, I can't get past the Terms and Conditions page anymore as it crashes then.

    Yep, while you can install it, it's unusable. Google isn't happy with BB10's popularity.

    I am not having trouble installing, it, When I open it and it tries to get the terms and conditions it says "Serious Error Occurred" and at the bottom "data connection lost." I also realized that Vlingo isn't working anymore either. I am pissed. What is going on here? It's worked fine for years.

    That's the same problem I'm having "serious error" when I try to run it the first time.

    Thanks a lot. I just installed Google Maps 4.5.3 on my Blackberry Curve 9320 running OS 7.1 in India using the files in the BlackBerry-47 folder from the zip file you shared. Got through the terms & conditions page with no issues and logged in using my Gmail account easily. Works like a charm so far.

    Thanks a lot,

    I have been looking for Google Map for my 9300 for sometime and thanks to this thread. 47 worked in a single shot and is able to browse through map.

    I have a sideloaded V7 of google maps on my Z10 and the only issue i have with it is the Sign in page that directs me to "Choose account" and when i tap add acount it just closes and takes me to the google map (where i was before selecting Sign in)

    Besides that i find the app runs smooth and no bugs (i installed it over a week ago no issues with it).

    Any know ways to address this issue? I.E. loging in to see stared places and etc from your Gmail account?
