WM 6.5 - map is a blank/white screen

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
I have a HTC HD2 running WM 6.5 and .Net 3.5.9 and I get a blank/white screen instead of the map. It only recently started to do it. It does log me in correctly etc, just can't see the map.

Crimson-

Hmm, we'll have to look into it. It may be that the map API we use for WM is deprecated now. Do you see traps?

No I don't see any traps and I left tha app run while driving and did not hear any audible alerts. I jst have a blank/white screen (sometimes black) where the map should be. The other icons/title bar etc show and work.

Map on trapster stopped working. All I get is blank maps. GPS seems to be working because i get the audio announcement when I pall traps.

I think this is an issue with the Bing Maps SDK we use. It may have been deprecated, we are looking into it.

I am still waiting on a resolution also... I am assuming its a WM6.5 - wide problem...

If you could maybe give us a status update and let us know about how long it would take - that would be great.

Thank you.

Hi,
I have the same problem on HTC HD2 running WM 6.5 and .Net 3.5.9.

Maybe it will a good option to "disable" the map and keep only alerts for W.M 6. phones. In this way you can save time and offert a sufficient service for this old operating system.

I will say this. If the Map does not display I will not use the product. There are others out there (may even be better) like "Waze" (it has a lot more functionality and seemingly more users).

If the map displays and the program works then I will use Trapster, but not otherwise...

Anyone tried this with an older version of Trapster? Do you still have the same issue. This issue started about 1 - 3 months ago & I believe an upgrade was made to Trapster version for WM @ that time. Anyone know where to get the CAB file for the older version?

No changes on our end for the WM app.

Same problem (black or white screen instead of the map). Have two ES400's, with slightly different firmware. The one with the older firmware is running an older version of trapster (and last ime I check it worked), the other has the most recent trapster download and exhibits the issue. Boo-hoo! Would love a fix.

Why won't trapster display maps on my Motorola ES400 running WinMo 6.5. I have two of them, one has been working fine for months, I got another with more updated firmware, but it does not display the maps. BTW, google maps, bing and waze all work fine.

Still haven't heard of anything about this!!!
Can we get the previous trapster.cab file if that will display the map?
I am running .Net 3.5.9198.0 but the .Net cab file downloaded from Trapster (during install) says that my version is NEWER than the one from Trapster - is this a problem?

If someone can post a link to the previous version CAB file, I'll download it & try it out & let everyone know how it goes. We really need a solution for this...

Update:
When I select the "Recent Traps" option it does show me the nearby traps but it comes up with an "Unable to Locate Map" error.

So is it that it cannot locate the map vs trouble displaying the map...?

PS: it does give me audio alerts of traps based on my settings...

Transfer knows the story. They are ashamed to tell it. TRAPSTER NO LONGER SUPPORTS WINDOWS MOBILE,

I found an older Trapster version - V0.972 @ 2007
( www.pocketpc-freeware.net/t-mobile-ht... ) BUT it does not accept Trapster ́s registred username and password

Thanks mihalerm. I tried it out also & it would not accept my username & password. This must be a really old version as it has so many separate icons for each function. I'm still searching for the previous version before the 1 they have listed on the website right now. That version worked perfectly for me before; although not sure if it will still work. Not sure the version # of that either.

I have an HTC Tilt 2 with Windows 6.5. I had a hard time istalling .net 3.5 because of the memory requirements for it to install properly. I finally had to use a taskmanager app to end some processes so I could install it. Well now I get Trapster in and I get a blank screen also. Icons look great but no map.

Yes we (users) know about the blank map. Although noone at Trapster is saying it - they no longer support WM 6.5 and they made some changes to the app a while back and since then the map does not display on WM 6.5. You won't get it working - we have tried all kinds of things. It does actually alert you, just doesn't display the map. Only thing I can suggest for WM 6.5 that does work is WAZE - its a similar social network and worth using in place of Trapster. Download it from waze.com.
