    Re: Google Maps locates users without GPS!

    My location will not work. It keeps coming up "current location temporarily unavailable." Anyone else have this problem? I am using T-Mo with unlimited data on a Pearl 8100. I did a battery pull and it doesn't help. Everything else works fine. I upgraded from version 1.6.

    I believe this app works well for locations that Google has maps of, i.e. US, Europe. In Asia, the margin of error is bad as I am in Malaysia, but the dot shows me about 500 km off (not 5 km!) in Singapore.

    Awesome. Even though my location was a off by a few blocks outside of the blue circle, But I am still awed by this.




    After exiting the app and running it again the dot resetted just across the street. sweet!

    Glad they added this feature. Sometime last year Nav4All had cell tower triangulation built into their program, but it didn't work as well as this.

    Also if you are on a long trip and you are trying to get traffic, it will help to locate a major highway.

    Its strange but in NYC it off by 1700 meters, once I saw 700 meters. But there must be more towers in NYC then any place else in the US and I would of thought it would be more accurate.

    My situation is identical to beam's. Does anyone have a fix for this?

    You must live in an area that google hasn't gotten around to working on. Try moving to different locations, that is what I had to do. So there is really no fix til google updates their cell tower info.
