(Consumer) BlackBerry Navigator 1.0

Version: 7.1.0.621

The following is a list of issues that appear in the latest BlackBerry Navigator 1.0 application (7.1.0.457):

  • UI – Missing borders on some graphic elements: Language translation resulted in some longer strings, causing the graphic container to be exceeded and messages to be truncated
  • Default Distance units set incorrectly: Menu > Preferences > Regional > Distance default setting Local Standard uses ft/mi units in Australia and France. Actual default setting should be m/km.
  • Highway name announcement in multiple languages: Some highway names may be announced in a language other than the local language during a navigation session.
  • Main menu “Help” label: The Help label in the main menu appears as a dirty string (e.g. de-de:Help) for non-English users.
  • Issue When Signal Lost: During weak cellular reception a message pops up stating “This feature is not available in roaming areas.” When signal is regained and/or roaming ceases, the screen times out every 10 seconds though voice instructions continue. To set the screen backlight to always on, the navigation session must be restarted.
  • Lock screen coming on during journey: The screen backlight should remain on while BlackBerry Navigator is navigating a route to a destination.
  • Error Message 4003: When searching an address in Germany the address appears in the list of results, but when selected for navigation a 4003 error occurs. Searching and navigating POIs in the UK is successful.

The following is a list of issues that appear in the latest BlackBerry Navigator 1.0 application (7.1.0.399):

  • United Kingdom addresses using 7-character postcodes may display “E” rather than “England.”
  • From Map, previous category search overrides subsequent Single Search results when using Menu > List.
  • Subsequent Single Search result sets with different search terms may not sort correctly by distance.

Note: I have provided these screen shots below via my BlackBerry Bold 9900 OS7 device to guide users who may need help how to install BlackBerry Navigator 1.0 [version 7.1.0.621].

      Firstly, my apologies for not responding sooner, and secondly, BlackBerry Beta Zone has removed BlackBerry Navigator assuming it’s Officially available via BlackBerry World now.
