    New Google Maps for Mobile with pseudo GPS

    Advertisement



    Google Maps upgrade (2.0) now includes a locating feature that mimics GPS by using cell tower IDs. Accuracy varies due to a number of factors such as tower density but many folks report that 50 to 500 meters is achievable. Google goes with a conservative 1700 meter number. I have seen 300 meters with my 8100, and it beats no start data whatever and no internal GPS on the current Pearl so I am thrilled. One of the thread admins can post the link to the Google Maps site.

    Yeah I installed it already. It works good although it was off about 2-3 blocks.
