    Just loaded up on my 8300, it knows exactly where I am. That's hot! I'll play with it more later, but so far seems to work fine.

    so it is safe to say that google now uses cellular triangulation to have idea as to where you are?

    Re: Google Maps 2.0.0

    highly doubtful that google is in the spy business...they probably did it after that kid who cracked the iphone started talking about want to create a triangulation program based off cell towers in order to get gps location (smart a$$ 17 year-old!)...anyways it's probably for just what you're seeing now...so that you can see your position without needing a gps puck

    Loving this program more and more every update. This My location feature is amazing. So much easier than than typing your location to get direction. I wonder what they are gonna come up with next.

    Very nice...the 'my location' freaked me out for a second. I had to reboot my 8100 2x though to get it to work.

    Re: Google Maps 2.0.0

    Thanks for the link Audit. Just downloaded it and it is working perfectly.
    The "My Location" feature is nice. I'm located near Wall st. and it is right on the money.
    One question though, if you are connected thru WiFi will it still work?

    Re: Google Maps 2.0.0

    It has me 800 meters off and that's when I'm outside. I pulled the battery a couple times and did a few Refresh GPS and still off. I'm really not liking this new version right now.

    Re: Google Maps 2.0.0

    ok, guess I'll be the first to download/test/comment on it with the 8130 (Verizon)

    edit: ok it says within 5,000 meters but it is showing me about 2 miles off

    edit: uninstalled

    Re: Google Maps 2.0.0

    I am having a problem download it right now. Should we be worried about auto cell tower triangulation? Or just as worried as if I had a GPS puck enabled?
