m.google.com/maps not working. Keeps redirecting me to Maps for Android Alex Laurie 12/5/12 3:48 AM
Anyone else having this issue. If I browse to m.google.co.uk/maps it refers me to the standard Google mobile page and does not install Google Maps for Blackberry. Anyone else having this issue? It was working yesterday.

I am having the exact same issue with Google Maps for Blackberry in the United States.  This is on an AT&T Blackberry Torch.
 
No solution yet...

I am also facing this same issue. Whenever I open m.google.co.in/maps it redirects to maps for android page.

Same problem here.  I tried using the Opera Mini web browser and had the same problem.  It seems that google is not detecting the Blackberry Web Browser correctly.  I opened my own topic too, but figured I would post here as well to help keep this active and to let google know they have a problem.

I'm having the same issue - updated my blackberry 9900 to os 7.1.0.794 and m.google.com is redirected to the android page.

A partial work around that I have found is the download for Google Maps for Blackberry is still available on their enterprise page.  If you search for - google mobile maps enterprise - it will be the first hit, from that page, you can download the maps under the title "JAD and COD files that you can host internally"  Download the file, unzip it, copy it to your mini-SD card.  Then, on the bb - go to the media folder, menu click - explore and then browse to the mini-SD card, open up the JAD file and install.
 
It is for version 4.4.0.  I am still looking for version 4.5.3.
 
Here is a direct download link if it works
 
I don't want google to consider this a solution, and I would still hope to get some official answer from them.
 
UPDATE - I DID FIND 4.5.3
I noticed the version numbers are in the URL so by changing that, the download should be the most recent version...
 
I successfully installed v4.4.0, I have not yet had a chance to install the 4.5.3

Thanks Brad! That worked for me for Maps 4.5.3 on my 9900 running os 7.1.0.794. Now if I can only find the Google Voice app...

Hi Brad,
That worked a treat on my Bold 9900 now running google maps 4.5.3. Many thanks. Seems to have lost street view but I can live with that for now. If only I could fing the Google Authenticator now.
 
Thanks Again

Would the link fix my issue do you think? Incredible 2 here and my issue is I once was able to, by default, Google search a map and click on the "directions" button. It would open my Google map app automatically. Now when I click on it, it redirected me to the Google maps on the internet. I've already tried clearing defaults and nothing has worked for me

Thanks for the reports, we're working to get the correct page to show up on your mobile browser, for now, please visit www.google.com/mobile/other to get to the proper download link.

Hi thanks for advice, can you advise is the google authenticator available from this site?
 
Many Thanks

That might work for the BB people, but not for those of us looking for the J2ME version.

I installs version 2.3.2 in late July and it works great.
It was still available a months or so back, but no it's gone.

There are a lot of phones still out there the run JAVA apps only, including several just released, like the LG840G.

 And, wehile I have found the unsigned app in other places, these phones need the signed version or they constantly ask for permission to access the data network. It makes the app virtually unusable.

Daniel, the links to the JAD and JAR that used to work are also broken.
Like this one
m.google.com/maps/download/maps.jad?ver=2.3.2&signed=1

Hi Daniel,
 
Sorry to hijack this thread, but I was hoping to get you to take a look at the other recent threads about google maps not working on blackberry phones after reset or reinstallation. Here is a link to the thread I started: http://productforums.google.com/d/topic/maps/3tuqceRHbBY/discussion. Many users are experiencing this problem. The application installs okay, but has a fatal error while attempting to ask the user to accept the terms and conditions. Whatever is causing this problem happened within the past few days. (I reset google maps often to clear the search history. In my case, the last time I reset google maps was last week, without any problem. I encountered this problem a couple of days ago after I upgraded the OS on my phone. I've tried deinstalling and reinstalling it with no change. Many users are experiencing this problem and it has been reported on Crackberry as well. I'm sure I speak for many that we depend heavily on google maps. It is the most heavilly used application on my phone, particularly when I travel. Kindly look into it as soon as possible.
 
Regards,
bimmer

The problem of loading Google Maps seems to have been fixed. From your Blackberry browser try http://google.com/mobile/other/
