I am using a Macbook and can't do all this Stored Maps thing, cause there ain't any programs for my OS

Is it possible to download finished Map Tiles from other Users to put in my MediaCard and run on my Blackberry 8900 ?

Could anyone provide a download link for

Whole "Germany - Openstreet Map" Tiles/Stored/Cached Map" to use with Offline MGmaps ?


I would appreciate any kind of help,
kind regards

In answer to your questions:

A) Yes, it is possible for someone else to download the map tiles for you, then transfer them to your phone; I have personally loaded map tiles on my old BB Curve 8900, my new BB Bold 9700, my wife's old Samsung, and my wife's new BB Curve 9300. I used the same map tiles/files each time, and they worked on every phone.

B) Sorry, I am not sure, but I'm guessing it would be a violation of somebody's copyright laws for me to post map tiles I don't own online anywhere; your best bet there would probably be having a friend near you transfer them physically to your device (i.e. plug the usb cable into their computer) so as not to aggravate any third parties by posting their copyrighted material on the internet.

C) Somewhat unrelated, but on my Curve 8900, which I noticed you're using the same model, I had to download a special BlackBerry version of the MGMaps software (version1.41.18) before it would display any stored maps for me. It was something about a special signature being required, I think; I'm not sure if that's been resolved already, or if you'll have to DL that version, but I figured I'd give you a friendly "heads-up."

Hope that helped,
Rob
