GeoSpot LBS Goes Mobile (BETA)
GeoSpot Inc., the location-based services and social activities company, announced today a Beta release of GeoSpot Mobile Web service. The service is a patent-pending high-performance sweeping search of local businesses and other POIs (points of interest) that are open either now or at a specified time. Instead of listing POIs of which many may be closed, consumers only see those that are currently open or opening soon.
Mobile users can use contextual navigation to find related POIs, see the location on the map, or simply use the one-click phone dial feature to immediately contact the businesses of interest. GPS capability will be added soon. The service works on any mobile phone with a browser. Mobile users simply connect to www.GeoSpot.com and GeoSpot servers provide the version appropriate for their mobile phone.
Thats ok maybe it will be in the south soon
the south? I hope it goes beyond the silly bay area!!!!!!!

How to Run GeoSpot Mobile Web Service for Verizon Wireless
If you have a Verizon Wireless mobile phone, you can access GeoSpot service by launching Mobile Web 2.0 and setting GeoSpot as a favorite website. After GeoSpot website is defined as a favorite, you can easily access it anytime simply from menu choices. On your phone, do the following:
- Go to GET IT NOW
- Select Get News & Info (option 4)
- Select Favorites (option 9)
- Click on ADD FAVORITES
- Type in "GeoSpot" and "www.geospot.com"
- Click "GeoSpot" from the Favorites to use anytime you need it!
GeoSpot Mobile Web works on any Verizon Wireless phones that support Mobile Web 2.0.
If you have not used Mobile Web 2.0, please be aware that you may need to subscribe to one of Verizon's plans including Mobile Web access. It is possible that Verizon Wireless may let you have access without subscribing to a plan, but may charge you ad hoc. Please visit Verizon Wireless website for latest policies and plan availability.
Where exactly is this "Get it now" on my BlackBerry? I even tried https://mobile.vzw.com and didn't see anything there. Does this really work with Verizon or do we need to have VZnavigator enabled, or is this false advertisment?

GeoSpot is not a software "application" that you download but a web-based service that also works on mobile web. As long as you can access other web sites (URLs), you should be ok.
For tonyr, they say they will expand to other states but it is not clear when.
