    Google maps uses the dataplan to download the map of where you are. You don't NEED a data plan, but you will have large data charges without one.

    Re: Google Map With Location Question

    I suggest you get a DATA plan if you REALLY want to use it. It uses a VERY large amount of data. On my phone, it uses about 800kb to load 1 single frame. That is $8 just for one frame, assuming i have a .01/kb usage...

    Just trying to show you the charges you might encounter if you dont have a data plan...

    Re: Google Maps locates users without GPS!

    My friends have determined a problem with the installation of the application. You need to have the older version of google maps in order to install this version. It apparently upgrades it. Some of my friends without the old version keeps crashing it. The device sits and does nothing for a long time. I had the older version along with some other friends and it works fine.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Haven't had this happen. I know installing via the Desktop Manager will install "updates" but whever I update any app OTA, it deletes the original.

    Re: Google Map With Location Question

    Especially with this new app with the locator. Whenver you leave the proximity of where the maps located you at, it automatically loads the next frame. Anyone who's uses Google Maps can see the size of the page its trying to load in the upper right hand corner. You're gonna need Unlimited Data if you don't wanna get charged up the wazoo!

    it worked, but I took it off my phone within an hour of downloading it because it was nowhere near accurate for me. It was anywhere between a 1/4 and 3 miles off...oh well. Maybe I'll the VZ Navigator a try.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~its not going to be pinpoint accurate. Its going of you peer to triangulate your location. I enjoy it better than 1.6 though. Mine is only 1/4 a mile off. So its not that bad at all
