    Ha! Who Needs The New GPS Phone! The Ol Mighty Google

    Advertisement



    For users who do have GPS cell phones, My Location can actually complement it, Google said. "My Location kicks in faster than GPS in most cases, so you can access your location even faster on the map," wrote Mike Chu, software engineer on the Google mobile team, on the team blog. "It also works reliably indoors (unlike GPS) and doesn't drain your phone battery at the rate that GPS does."

    And it works great even without a GPS enabled Phone! [read more]

    i got it to work with google maps, but its not very accurate at all, and yes it uses the closest cell phone tower but its showing my a 5 minute drive away from where i am right now.

    Did you dl google maps onto your phone yet? This is an upgrade to what was available before. Its adds a location service which finds your location using cell towers rather than satellites like gps. So now I practically have an 8310/8320 hybrid!
