    Then why not try Nokia Maps?

    Maps.bar


    This is just a simple application, it's pulling mapping data from Nokia.com,

    I just thought that fixing it up a bit would make it look better on the PlayBook.


    Any and all feedback is appreciated

    I checked it out. Seems to work OK, but I still prefer Google Maps running in the android player: Smoother, with a better, more responsive UI. Still, nice to have options.

    Thanks for the link!

    I never really did figure out which Google Maps version was the most stable. I had been using 6.2 but it would randomly crash at times

    Version 6.2 has been rock stable under the OS 2.1 beta - all newer versions crash when opening the settings page, so...

    Hoping the newly announced "offline" version works better than 6.3+.

    I rolled my own BAR using an apk I downloaded. The about dialog says 6.2.0-ownhereMOD.

    Seems quite stable - haven't had a crash yet under 2.1 beta.

    What version of the PB OS are you running?

    Yeah, each time we get a new OS update we got to retry the majority of the Android apps again

    I believe every update so far has improved the Android runtime, from OS 2.0 up the the latest Beta 2.1 OS.

    As rkennedy said, Google maps is very stable under the beta 2.1 OS. This was/is not true with OS 2.0, where the app would easily crash, especially if you tried to zoom in or out too fast. It's ability to hold a GPS signal seemingly is still an issue, though.
