Question Update Google Maps app

I see Google have released a major update for Google Maps which includes the new Latitude friend locator functionality (optional of course!) : http://googlemobile.blogspot.com/200...time-with.html

So I tried installing it from google.com/latitude, but it would install and gave the error message something like 'Cannot install Google Maps is built-in'.

So am I stuck waiting for an update from Samsung via Pc Studio? Or is there some way I can get around this?

Happened to me too and I didn´t find a way around it... i guess everything that came preínstalled at the ROM is protected from deleting, updating,... it sucks a little, not too much though.

no its not the end of the world... but this pre-installed apps is getting more annoying. No updates seem to be coming from Samsung via PC Studio :( I now have 2 apps that I want to update, and one is because it needs a bug fix...

How did you install Nokia Maps?
I have tried signing a certificate-free version even, but even that says "install base package first"

Where are you getting your Nokia Maps from? Are you using the Nokia Maps Updater?

What? What you doing trying to install any files that need signing in the first place for Nokia Maps??

Dotsis is full of cracked, and warez, be careful my friend.

Have you downloaded, and installed Nokia Maps Updater on your PC?

EDIT - Ignore my comments above, i thought you were talking about a Nokia handset, sorry.

yup, thats the problem, official installer wont work because nokia block installation on non-nokia handsets. bit silly really cause if theyd let me install it theyd be making money on my subscription
