For everyone who’s been looking for a newer version of Google Maps. here’s the latest and greatest, version 2.3.2. You can thank BoostApps reader “LockDown” for finding it and verifying that it works.
Compared with version 1.5.1, 2.3.2 adds Street View plus walking and transit directions. Still no GPS support . LockDown say Maps 2.3.2 works great on his i856, including Street View. On my i776 2.3.2 loads and for the most part works although menus seem to take longer to open than with 1.5.1. The one thing that doesn’t seem to work on the i776 is Street View. Every time I go into Street View, Maps locks up tight and I have to kill it with the Red key. I’m not sure whether I will keep this on my phone or go back to the snappier and more stable 1.5.1.
I don’t know about compatibility with other models. If you try this with a different iDEN phone like the i9, i855, i856 or i290 please leave a comment letting us all know how well it works.
