    Re: Google Maps locates users without GPS!

    Wow! I've been using Google Maps for sometime on my BB(with GPS) but this new one takes the cake. Maybe I didn't know all the features but has the search feature where it is located on the map always been there just like on the iPhone app? Very awesome. I love what Google is doing in general, I'm becoming more and more of a fan boy everyday. I wonder if they will ever charge for this application or how does it generate any money for them if they leave it free.

    Awwwhhhh! This is very nice. I'm looking at my condo now, although the maps are pretty old. Even though this being the case, it is still pretty cool.

    Thanks Hayden for the find.

    Sweet! Its off about 2 blocks for me----but maybe I hit that close cause I'm in LA??? Perhaps more satalites on bigger cities?
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    I agree with many of the posters here. This app is greatly improved, both in terms of non-GPS functionality and the interface. Thanks for the heads up Hayden.

    Do you need a dataplan in order to run this application? I was thinking of installing it to my phone through my computer!

    Re: Google Maps locates users without GPS!

    I love the improvements!! Typing in my current location was always such a hassle especially if I was in an unfamiliar city and had no idea where I was. I justed tested the locating function at home, its about a mile off however its much better than the previous version of Google Maps which I could never get the GPS function to work.
