    Ha ha, now I don't have to pay Verizon for GPS

    I have a question - does anyone know if there is a way to find out what the zipcode for the map are you are viewing is? Does the app have this feature?

    Darn. You'd Think downtown san diego would be pretty well covered. Maybe its just that I live in a poorer part of downtown? Oh well.
    There should be an option here, if my location is unavailable, why don't you let me tell you my location, next time you'll know.

    Does anyone know if it will work without dataplan. Because I do not currently have data plan!
    Can I install it through my computers USB cable? Thanks
    An unlimited data plan is highly suggested. A lot of data is reguired to display the maps and satellite im agery. I download the file to my computer and installed it with the Desktop Manager software that came with my BB.

    This free program works awesome on my Pearl.

    do a search for a gas station or starbucks depending on ur location and in the results that gmm pulls out for ur location, u can see the zipcode in the nearest search result details.

    short misdirection in MYLOCATION

    Weird!, I downloaded and installed google maps. It seems to work fine, even with great colors. However, the blue dot of mylocation is far lost because I'm in Guadalajara, Mexico and not in somewhere in Greece. Any idea of what is going wrong?
    Saludos,

    Marcel.

    Now it works!!

    I guess that since it seems that it's not yet available maps from Guadalajara México it's not possible to locate my position but I tried in satellite mode and it worked. Awesome. It has abot 3 Km error but it is great!
    Saludos,

    Marcel.

    Re: Google Maps locates users without GPS!

    I had recently discovered this new application and I love it although it doesn't work in a few places here in LIttle Rock, AR. A funny thing though - every once in a while, it switches (on its own) my location to Chateaurenard, France, which is one of my saved "favorite" locations because I was there last September but I am certainly not now. Just a quirk in the software I guess - as I said, it's fun to use and once they have the bugs out of it, it'll be a decent substitute to GPS and all the required and costly updates. By then, Google will probably be charging for it anyway.
    Thanks,
    jb
