    New Google Maps w/ "my location" SICK

    Advertisement



    I'm using this with an 8320 (ie no GPS) and it has my location down within ONE block, every time even while I'm driving. obviously they're using cell towers to triangulate me somehow but HOW in the world are they pulling this off? this is amazing to me how they can tell me where I am, it's a tad scary at the same time. Anyone else using this? if not you must get ahold of it if you have a berrry w/out GPS/puck
    Yes, I've been diagnosed with Phantom Vibration Disorder.....

    I don't want to take away from how cool this is, it is definately impressive, but years ago with AT&T GSM on a regular phone they had something where I could search for restaurants or other places based on my location as auto determined by the cell sites so it's nothing new, just the best implimentation of it.
