Tried that but it doesn't have the zip file posted yet. It redirects to http://www.google.com/gmm/bes_apps/v...rce=gmmdesktop ... 3rd Party BlackBerry Software forum

    New Beta Google maps

    Over on Gizmodo, they had this great article on the new beta google maps.

    Google has just announced Google Maps for Mobile 2.0 which will allow people without GPS-enabled phones to pinpoint their location on their handsets. Using its new "My Location" technology, which uses the location of nearby cell towers to determine your location, it delivers a makeshift GPS-like locator on many phones without GPS. It'll also compliment phones that do have GPS capabilities, as this technique is faster than GPS and works better in buildings where GPS can be flakey. It doesn't work on every phone, unfortunately, but it will work on "most smartphones, including all color BlackBerry devices, all Symbian Series 60 3rd Edition devices, most Windows Mobile devices, newer Sony Ericsson devices, and some Motorola devices." There's a beta of it available for your perusal now.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    It actually hasn't been too off for me yet. I'm trying it around campus and its pretty accurrate, in terms of getting pretty close. Hasn't been spot on but its close enough to accept. I'm gonna try it out more on my way home, that should be a real test.

    well it says my location is a few miles away... maybe it just marks the tower we are running off of?

    Re: Google Maps 2.0.0

    Works beautifully on the 8700c and 8100 (t-mobile) devices I just loaded it onto. Did notice that my cingular 8700c has a smaller error circle than the T-Mobile 8100 does while sitting in the same locations. The actual location on the maps on the other hand are almost identical. Love this new addition. Will save me a lot of headache from the wife when we are going somewhere I have never been to before. lol

    Re: New Beta Google maps

    just like any other gps device, it needs signals to pinpoint where you are. you are probably only picking up one tower

    I did it on 8130 with 911 only... it was off by a bit (said 5,000 meters but had me roughly 2 miles across town).
