Get Google Maps on your Blackberry

My starting list of devices with physical keyboards was as follows: All of the Android phones except for the Terrain have slide-out keyboards, so they lose some points but are not excluded completely. The reviews for the Terrain are so bad that it looks to be a non-starter. Now for the offline mapping requirement: However, it doesn't seem to have any maps for Australia available, which is an absolute requirement for me since I travel there at least twice a year.

It seems to me that Garmin has stopped selling the Blackberry versions of their application which is unfortunate and in any case I'm not sure whether or not software written for the series is supposed to work on the So the questions that I am trying to answer are: Sygic can be run on BB10 with the Android compatibility layer?

RIM's latest attempt at a cheap-as-chips smartphone

If the answerse to all of these questions are "no" then I guess my only option is to go with an Android phone with a slide-out keyboard. Does anyone have any recommendations for these? Thanks in advance. If you're not looking at the Lumias to get Nokia's offline maps and they are still the only ones offering true offline built-into their systems and their maps for Australia are fantastic! You're not going to find what you want in one package because you're one of the few remaining who cares about a physical keyboard.

Phones with physical keyboards are a niche, but so are cameras with phones attached.

September 10, at 4: The app is terrific in theory, but in practice there are two big issues for me: I use that more than anything, but I can only get it through RIM's mobile site. Hope these two issues get resolved soon! I can't get m. What gives? I hope this app works on WIFI only as well!!! September 10, at 5: September 10, at 7: Robert said Ryan Li said September 10, at 8: If you can't assign labels to email, or at least see the labels that were assigned based on your filters, then it's pretty much pointless for me and most of the people I know.

The reason we use GMAIL mobile is to cleanup email on the go so that things aren't quite as hectic when you get back to a browser, but without the label functionality you can't archive mail because you can't first confirm that the right labels are assigned to it, nor can you label it within the GMAIL mobile app.

It's also somewhat annoying that you can't remove certain menu options, like Contacts, as I never really need to go into them separately. They're on the label list, but they're greyed out so you can't do anything with them. My BlackBerry Curve is now my main T-Mobile phone and I find that the 3rd party application support is just what I need to get things done and be productive. Google sent me an email to let me know that the Google Mobile App for BlackBerry devices is now available for free by visiting m.

September 11, at 1: Rainer said This app is really great; thanks for providing us with it. Two questions however: Will Google Talk be included in the hopefully not to distant future? Is there a version available which enables BES admins to push the package via the software configurations option?

I'm not to keen to manually update it on each single one of our companies' BlackBerrys and would therefore like to automate its distribution.

September 11, at 4: Metaphored said It seems that it is not yet accessible by blackberry users in Brazil. I am forcefully redirected to the Brazilian page with options in portuguese - and NO Google Mobile App there - is that on purpose?

I would really like to have this app installed. September 11, at 5: Blackberry - ATT Installed, uninstalled, installed and still get message - "The application Googlesearch has attempted to open a connection to a location inside the firewall and outside the firewall which is not allowed by your IT policy. I am not on BES. Further it deleted every last previous Google icon I had. I cannot access gmail, search, docs, calendar.

Uninstalling does unfreeze but Google appears to have eliminated downloading Mail, search, and docs, calendar as separate programs with own icons. Avoid this unless you enjoy destroying your existing setup. Michael Buckingham said September 11, at 7: Nope, emulation here is all blackberry and no go. And the page is in portuguese, what makes me think about localization problems. Freehawk said This app, like all Google has released in the past, gives ONE option for the browser you choose.

Blackberry Browser is garbage. I don't know a single Blackberry user that uses the included browser. Ever tried Opera mini? It blows the included browser out of the water. Give us an option to select which browser this opens up in! I must be the 'single Blackberry user' then. Alas, it's beside the point of this discussion.

September 11, at 8: One would think that Google would give instructions that actually worked. September 11, at 9: The older mobile gmail application had a setting for increasing the font size. The new one doesnt!!! Any plans on getting this out? This was such a neat feature for the "visually" challenged! September 11, at You can't upsize the font like the old Gmail app could.

It's hard to read smurf sized writing on a Curve. You still can't use the Delete button to delete emails WHY?! The gmail notifier for new mail is gone from the new app button.

Search It!

You have to go into the app to see it Or unhide the gmail app that was reinstalled, which seems redundant. And where is the Picasa app for photos? Picasa3 is awesome and it would be nice to integrate it. Otherwise, I dig it. Incredibly convenient to have it all available in one place.

Support for Google Apps for Domains only feels partially implemented. I've set the option on, entered in my domain, but the Google Mobile App does NOT consider the Mail by Google application as being the same thing as the Gmail application. Why do I prefer the blue icon of Mail by Google over the red icon of Gmail? From Gmail, I can only log in to Gmail. Support for your own other mail application would be a welcome addition! Otherwise, it's a nice app. Used to work, now I get nothing by Error Danny Taft said Does this replace the existing apps, or simply create links to them? In other words, is it ok to uninstall the google maps and gmail applications that I already had installed?

Well, not emulating Blackberry, nor with IE. No download for me, it does not even show.

September 12, at 6: DariaSofi said Download via default BB browser - it doesn't work thru Opera Mini. Also, you can't paste into the search box, and it excludes Google Talk. Reader and News also open in the default browser, so this is a pretty useless app for Opera users.

Not impressed, google! Marco Schirmer said September 12, at 7: It's basically just a way to have all the various Google mobile services available in one place. I have to go to refresh on the menu for it to get my new mail. So it looks like it uses up data bandwidth when it does it's 'fake' update, then uses more when I do the refresh.

How Google Maps for BlackBerry Devices Works

September 13, at 1: Dayre, read thru the comments - we have already said that the mobile app is only a link to existing apps already installed on your phone. Think of it as a shortcut That makes it pretty useless to most people, I think. Eduardo Loyola said I have switched to Blackberry browser and finally I get the download page but, when I try to install it, I get an error message indicating that my BB is not supported yet: When is it planned to release the BB version?

I thought that BB version were valid for all BB models. Thanks in advance. September 13, at 6: DariSofi, I have read the comments. Once the google mobile app is installed, i apparently have the option to download additional apps. When i click on GMail.. My reported issue is with the fact that the UI says i can download If the UI says you can download additional apps, then it's obviously more than just a shortcut September 14, at 3: Angelo said Any hope of seeing that?
