So, I was browsing the BB10 forums. They can install converted apk's, but not Google Framework (similar to Kindle). Cobalt232 posted a few instructions on getting the latest version of Google Maps working for BB10.

Overall, the app works with directions, but the text is a little messed up. Give it a try, perhaps BB10 and Kindle users could cooperate on apps.

I have Google Account Manager, Services Framework, and Play Services installed. Not sure if the app will work otherwise
