New software updates are great! When they work that is.
I have a Blackberry Storm 9500 (the first Storm) and yesterday, Google Maps released their mobile maps 4.0. They added a great feature -- it's voice activated. I can hold down the Call button and say "Las Vegas" and a map of LV is on the screen in seconds. That said, their were missing items.
They removed the zoom icons from the screen, these were now in a menu (not good). They removed the My Location icon from the screen and it too was in the menu. It was also stuck in portrait with a keyboard that would not go away, and I no amount of thumb swiping would pan the map...it was stuck. I searched Google for answers last night and tried a bunch of ideas that were put out there and nothing worked on all the issues at once, so I slept on it. This morning, I found the answer! The answer and a new release, as I was not the only one with these issues.
4.0.2 Release is available, but there are things to do still after the upgrade.
Here's what I needed to do....
