    Google Maps Voice Recognition Finally Works (for me anyway)

    Advertisement



    A month or 2 back google supposedly came out with a version of maps for some BBs where you could hold down the left convenience key and speak your request. It was supposed to have supported my VZ 8130 but I never got it to work. From reading through a bunch of posts at the time, I was not alone.

    Well I was promted by my google mobile updater app to upgrade maps over the weekend and lo and behold, voice recognition FINALLY works!

    It's pretty nice. One cool thing is that while you're in google maps, it will override whatever app you have assigned to the left key so you don't have to keep that key open, a la vlingo.

    Mine is still saying that my signal is too weak and that google maps cannot connect. I got full bars and capital EDGE.
