    I'm not sure, but I think that other programs like weather bug use gps info from bb maps!

    I recently downloaded the google maps and deleted bb maps. I've used google maps a couple of times and it seems to be working ok.

    It's a good idea to keep bbmaps on because you cannot designate another "default" map service for the bb os. Some programs rely on bbmaps to run weatherbug is one that comes to mind.

    No you don't need blackberry maps to run google maps. I deleted bb maps. Because google maps is faster/smaller size.

    Only downside is I can't use weatherbug but u don't use it so whatever.

    Plus if you want it back you can always install it back.

    I got rid of BBmaps along time ago. I have been using google latitude which is WAY nicer and locates my GPS location within like 2-3meters.

    Cant you just manually set your location on WB with the Zipcode? I thought you only needed GPS if you wanted it to "find my location" on startup etc...

    Nope. When I tried opening weatherbug it closed because I dint have blackberry maps. Won't let you use the app without bbmaps.
