    How do you know its gps and not just triangulation?

    I can't seem to figure the gps part out. But cool find ... It works with transit systems too!

    If you hit 0 and it says your position within less than 1,000 meters, you're using GPS. Otherwise it's just Cell Tower Triangulation.

    Still seeing v1.5.1.1090 on m.google.com ....

    EDIT: nevermind.. If you click the maps link on the main page it goes to the new verison if you go to Gmail, maps, and more... it goes to the old version and/or they haven't updated the text on that page.

    I'll post back in a few if the GPS works on VZW.

    EDIT #2: Upon first loading My Location was within 1700 meters. After trying again (pressing 0) it's back to 5000 meters. *sigh*

    EDIT #3: Now back to 1700.. Seems to be hit or miss, but I'm assuming it's still using triangulation instead of GPS.

    You have two ears, two eyes, and one mouth;
    therefore, listen and observe twice as often as you speak.

    Haha was that a Simpsons reference?! I think this whole GPS thing is tragic. I guess VZNav will have to cut it for now.

    The new update is so you can now use google transit for certain cities. Still trianglates for me too(Telus Curve)

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ the transit directions are a nice touch but they haven't added NY to the list of cities. I find that odd since NY relys on public transpo.
