    By now, everyone who has loaded the new OS has discovered that GoogleMaps 3.2 is not formatted for a touch screen.

    GoogleMaps 3.02 does work in a touch screen mode. I deleted the 3.2 vesrion and installed the older 3.02 version and it works great with the new 5.0.323 OS.

    You can download OTA here:
    old version GoogleMaps 3.0.2

    My BAD...3.2 does work. Finally got it to work.

    The version I downloaded from m.google.com/maps didn't work with the touch screen, but the version I got from the link Matt posted worked fine.

    The first time I ran it it was only half screen with the keyboard, but the next time I went into it, it was fine, and I didn't have to change any settings. I did check though, and compatibility mode is off.

    Cheers!!

    I downloaded it from m.google.com/maps and had to pull the battery after disabling compatibility mode to get it to go full screen.

    3.2 does work just fine
    The link worked perfect for me (running 5.0). Only problem is latitude is not working. It just sits there and says "joining latitude" but it never signs in ... Thoughts?

    With the beta 5.0's Google will not recognize that you are using a storm and it will want you to dL the Trackball version. It will start in compatibility mode but even if you disable it, then it will still load as a trackball version and you wont be able to scroll or use the my location feature. To get the storm specific version use the link howarmat provided http://bordapapa.extra.hu/maps.jad (credit goes out to bordapapa for fashioning up this link)
    This will download the correct version of GM and works perfectly

    heres an odd one. Had 5.0.0.323 working great for last two days. I just went and downloaded the storm version of google maps. After restart, any time i am in a menu screen it's as if the blackberry button keeps pressing itself. when you click the blackberry button the first option is "lock screen" so my storm keeps pulling up the menu and locking the screen on its own. if i click the back button in time i can momentarily stop this and get into applications. once in an app this doesn't happen.

    i have managed to delete google maps and done a couple of battery pulls but the problem remains.

    maybe the google maps part of this problem is just a coincidence and something else has gone wrong.

    my guess is the best fix is to revert to the 4.7 os but of course all i have is a mac at home and apparently can't do this without a PC. Please help! Thanks

    Nevermind. Found the fix. It wasn't google maps causing the issue. I had to delete StopTilt

    Gives traffic info, wikipedia info, and some other stuff. It "layers" it over the map.

    I'm having the same issue. No GPS signal lock on at all.

    Does anyone know what's wrong?

    GPS is set to Location On

    I'm on VZW Official 5.0 OS

    I have had no problem with the GPS positioning, what is super annoying with the latest version of Google Maps (on both 4.7 and 5.0) is that it tries to 'flick' scroll and attempting to scroll a little bit across the map results in shooting a hundred miles away. I wish I could turn that off somehow, whoever thought flick scrolling for anything was a good idea needs to be tarred and feathered (I am looking at you, Steve Jobs).
