    Google Maps with my location

    Advertisement



    I downloaded the latest version of Google Maps that is supposed to show my location. Mine always shows my location is temporarily unavailable. I using T Mo on an 8100. Anyone else have this problem? Everything else works fine.

    it depends on alot of things, if google has entered your tower info into their database. so it is not available in all locations.


    for me it shows i am getting the tower info, but says unavailable, but if i go over the mountain to another town it shows up.

    It also depends on the number of towers near you to make triangulation possible or proximity to the tower to even pinpoint your location with some certainty. That is the reason the program gives you an "approximate" location and tells you how close it thinks it is to your actual location.

    with me works fine. The result depends from the network coverage in your area.

    Go to www.google.com/gmm on your bb browser and follow the directions
