    Hi people

    I have got the maps application working, it finds locations and everything as usual. only when I try to plan route I get a message saying "Driving directions could not be received" anyone else getting this? or know why this is happening and how I can fix it?

    Thanks

    Ali

    it could be that you are trying to search for an address that google maps can't recognize. try simply searching for directions from one city to another. for example: Start: San Francisco, CA End: Los Angeles, CA

    That is very interesting!!! it only seems to work with major cities and not post codes!!!!! in London, but I guess that's better than nothing..

    Thanks for your help though :)

    Hey

    Based on your post the only thing you are missing to get it to work is the "instalation" itself and to do that login to your iPod via SSH (login: root, password: alpine) then type the following command press return and then restart your iPod and it should get maps to work:

    /bin/chmod -Rf a+x /Applications/*

    let me know how it goes

    pinch in the reverse direction. (in other words pinch in, bring your fingers towards each other....)
