    Blackberry 8330 and google maps

    Is google maps supposed to be able to give exact locations or just use tirangulation? All I'm getting is the cell tower triangulation...I have all permissions set to allow and the device location is turned on. Anyone?
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    I am not sure I understand the question, but it uses triangulation with cell towers in order to work without GPS.

    Launch the app and hit 0 (zero)
    It should give your "your location within xxx meters" This will vary according to your relationship with towers, but I have found it to be very accurate.

    Verizon has the GPS still locked down for some apps I think. For that it uses traingulation,

    That's correct. Unless you pay the $10 a month or whatever it is, you don't get GPS, and if you do want to use it, you have to use BVZNav.
