    Does anyone know how to find an earlier version of Google Maps? I upgraded to 4.5 on my 8320 and have discovered that no version of Maps past 1.6.4 will work on 4.5. (The installation hangs up at 90%; this is a known glitch if you believe various forums.)

    I would like to put 1.6.4 on the BB, but can't locate it at Google...

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks.

    I recommend 100% google maps! Its awesome. You can even type under "search" and specific place and it gives you the neartest locations to you. On top of that its FREE!

    Uh - google "older versions of google maps" or something like that. I had the same problem on my Win Mobile PDA with the current version and found a site I think down under that had them.

    I'm running 2.2 on my 8320 w/4.5. It was there when I was on 4.2 and the OS upgrade preserved it. I guess I shouldn't delete it then.

    I upgraded 4.5 over the old OS and it would not let google maps start. When I tried to download it it would say that there isn't any maps download for my rim software. I wiped my berry with jlc and did a fresh 4.5 install. Since then google maps downloads and works fine. Unfortunately it takes away the lady's voice from nav4 all and i uninstalled it.

    I really like google but i have found that Live Search Mobile really works better for me.

    just type wls.live.com in your browser on your phone.

    also here is a link with some info on it. Live Search Mobile

    Live search is indeed a great app. It coexists with Nav4all too.

    Google Maps and Live Search are both great products. Google maps is better/faster at pinpointing my location via GPS. Live Search is way off. Live Search's search abilities is better than google. Also their traffic maps are more accurate.
