have video viewed it in my
recent feature video of the LG KS20, which doesn't has GPS and as it turns
out, it's not a Vodafone only feature anymore but now available for all. Google
Google Maps Mobile 2.0 with My Location (beta) where you can get your
location on the map, with or without GPS. Save time and tedious keystrokes
finding where you are, what's around you, and how to get there. Press "0" and look for the blue dot on the
map. If you have a GPS-enabled device, this blue dot corresponds to your GPS
location. At times, or if you do not have a GPS-enabled phone, you might see the
blue dot surrounded by a light blue circle to indicate uncertainty about
Why the uncertainty? The My Location feature takes information broadcast from
mobile towers near you to approximate your current location on the map - it's
not GPS, but it comes pretty close (approximately 1000m close, on average).
Google Maps Mobile 2.0 still in beta, but it my tests it was definitely working
well, down to 200 meters or so.
The My Location feature is now available for most web-enabled mobile phones,
including Windows Mobile, Java, BlackBerry, and Nokia/Symbian devices.
