    Both google maps (latest version as part of mobile.google.com download) and MSN Live Search (visit wls.live.com) have a "location on" feature that uses cell towers to get you within 1700ft of your location.

    For those of us Verizon users who refuse to pay for VZ Navigator - thanks to MSN and Google for at least coming up with something that attempts to duplicate GPS that should work.

    i downloaded the new google and this feature is awesome! but for Live Search, where do you find that? I looked through all the option and can't find this. Please elaborate.

    I've used live search and at this point Google Maps is better. Live doesn't update fast enough while moving at higher speeds and it's difficult to see the marker that shows where you are. You just can't beat that blinking blue dot.
