    You need BIS for BlackBerry Maps. But the GPS should work independently.

    Where exactly are you seeing the GPS failing to update the location?

    What specifically do you need?

    You *need* to have a Blackberry Data plan in order to use the BB apps like Maps. You also need to be connected to BIS, either through your mobile network or WiFi to use a number of BB apps like maps, BBM, Traffic, etc.

    Is the application installed? it should be by default. Go into the DM and choose Applications. Is BB Maps installed? if no install it. Now you need the icon. On your device go to blackberry.com and choose install BB Maps. This will install the icon file. You need BIS no matter if on wifi or cellular - no way around that. get Google Maps from googlemaps.com...
