    Thumbs up Google Maps 2.0 now with approx location- no GPS needed

    Advertisement



    Google just released v2.0 of google maps mobile, now with a feature called "What's my location?". It's not as precise as GPS, but uses some sort of triangulation via cell phone towers.

    See GigaOm's review here: http://gigaom.com/2007/11/28/google-my-location/

    Download google maps at http://www.google.com/gmm

    I tried this out.. Its rather funky at least the first time I tired this at home. I was nowhere within the located Radius of the blue dot (within 5000 meters). I tried GPS via E911 and Location On. Just didn't matter too much. I even tried making a call as well as *228 Option 1 and still nothing. I'll try tomorrow at work but doesn't matter too much. Just try try again

    Just getting started with my first BB.

    hopefully someone can help me with an issue i have with Goolge Maps. I have downloaded and installed the application, after i finish the install and try to access Google Maps it just freezes my entire BB. I've deleted the application and re-installed only to have the same problem.

    I have an 8800 and i'm using the BIS service by my provider. Internet works fine.
