    this app works pretty good but whenever i try to navigate maps some tiles are missing they only display an “x” saying its not available what could be causing this?

    • Dennis says:

      Sounds like a bug or maybe the download is timing out due to the slow iDEN network. Try using a different map source (ms, yahoo, open street maps, etc.)

      sorry Dennis i forgot to mention i got a Blackberry and i did try other sources but same thing i do have google maps on my phone too so im wondering if the two are conflicting

    • Dennis says:

      I’ve never heard of two Java apps conflicting. The Java sandbox model should make that impossible.

    what would happen if i deleted my gps with out know what it does?

    • Dennis says:

      You can’t delete GPS. it’s part hardware and part software that’s baked into read only firmware.
      As for what it is and does, it’s a Global Positioning System that uses satellites to determine where you are. It’s what lets 911 know where you are when you call them and also lets apps like MGMaps show your current location on a map.
