I just downloaded the new google maps on my storm and it now supports the built in GPS.
nvm, goto google.com/gmm its a new version! thanks Josh!
The GPS seems to be working good on my phone or maybe I am just in a good area right now for my cell towers. But the GPS is only working for my location, not directions anyone else tried?
I updated google maps and checked my location. It still shows me within 5000 m of my supposed location; directions work.
BB maps wasn't even close to where I'm at right now and usually it's almost right.

Great news! As some of you have already noticed, you're now able to use your Storm's GPS with Google Maps for mobile with this latest update
I wanted to thank all of your for your help and patience in this matter. For more info, head to http://googlemobile.blogspot.com/2009/02/google-maps-on-verizons-blackberry.html
If you want to get the newest update on your Storm, just point your browser to m.google.com/maps
And as always, feedback is always welcome
What am I doing wrong? I downloaded google maps, allowed all the permissions, set GPS services for Location On, rebooted and it keeps saying it's waiting for the gps. I've never used this before. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
I spend more time playing around on my phone while at work then I do working....I love it!
Okay, trying dl again just to see.
Make sure you are able to get a gps signal where you are. I know at my office both garmin and google maps cannot acquire gps signal, but as soon as I am outside it is fine.

I'll have to try that once I get out of this prison, er um, place.
Well I'll be, it actually worked!
i downloaded it about 2 hours ago and i gotta say .. its good ! i have already called vz and cancelled my vz nav . i did get a fix in my house (sitting next to window) in about 2mins on first boot and when i got to work , it found me instantly. yay !
Does anyone use that latitude thing? If so can someone let me add them just so I can see how it works? Im very curious about this.
