    SOLVED


    Hi There

    Just got a shiny new Pre 3. Running 2.2.4.
    I logged in to my palm profile and it started to pull my data from HP maps refuse to download and install.
    Phone first activated in the US.

    Any thoughts?

    did the app cat and everything else update? and if so did you try a reboot and see if maps will update then.

    Not the first time for this! Also try un-installing and then re-downloading/installing 'Maps'?

    Thanks for your reply.

    I looked at the app cat version number it said v2.1.10000. Did the app cat update anyway! Rebooted and it still said v2.1.10000.
    Re tried to download the HP maps and it WORKED!!

    Problem solved, but I'm not sure what did the trick as it seems nothing changed, at least not visible to me.

    I've always had the same issue when doctoring my phone. Retrying the download manually has always worked for me also.

    i think maps fails to install until the app cat is more current, only when thats up to date does maps tend to install right, this likely happens as when everything restores it probably doesnt care in what order their done by, if it did, it would do OS specific things first starting with the app cat, then games/other apps after the important stuff.

    Now do yourself a favor, and download the Google Maps app from Preware.

    Hi

    I already have the google maps app by 72ka. Can't get by without it
    Just thought it was funny that hp.s own app refused to download!

    I have a couple of games that that did not download at all. Original Angry birds and Assassins creed.
    Not sure if it matters but my trusted Pre 2 was activated in UK and the new shiny Pre 3 was activated in the US.
    Frustrating that paid apps refuse to download as i find them in the app cat.

    The Maps App is special...

    It has four functions:
    1) Remove the old Google Maps module (but leaves the directory structure there)
    2) Install Enyo if you do not have Enyo (which can cause issues)
    3) Install/Uninstall an app called Rebooter (which reboots the Phone and leaves the directory structure there)
    4) Install the new Maps app.

    So 1,2,3 are what seem to cause all the fuss, as you are downloading many apps, it can't reboot, and because it might not be able to remove an app (as many are being installed on first use), and it might have an issue installing Enyo disk space issues?

    But once you are done with that first wave, you can re-download the app (or what I did is cancel the download), and it never asks for it again (this also seems to fix the dreaded hey your webOS x versions is new six months down the road).

    Find the app you want and tap on it, if you have payed for it before you get the option to download it for FREE.
