    I wake up, log on CB, and see GMaps now works! Woohoo!

    First I tried it, and was still getting a location about 2 miles away, but after a minute or so, I was within 3 meters, indoors, downtown, and it's raining.

    i am indoors, and it is giving me "location within 2100 meters, waiting for GPS" for the last 20 min. and my blue dot keeps moving around on the map.

    do you have to go into your gps to change settings first or does google do it automatically? I downloaded googlemaps and it does not locate me. I allowed google to change whatever settings it does.

    You'll probably want to go into GPS and change it to "Location On"

    You sure you updated to new version of Google?

    I thought this was a new version, so I deleted my old app and downloaded what I thought was a newer version. 3.0.2 has been out for at least a month, that is how long I have been using it. Still updates location only within 4000 meters. Big deal!
    Simple enough...no. 3.0.1 was the current version as of 2 days ago when I last verified it. My current location indoors is accurate to 8 meters. When I switch to satellite view, the dot is literally on top of my roof.

    You might want to try deleting and trying again...and make sure your GPS location option is turned on.

    I find it strange why they made this exclusive to the STORM. Mabey if all the other BB users start complaining they will bring the rest on board! Good Luck and happy to see it's working for you!

    That may make perfect sense to you, but try telling me again... You typed "google mobile" into what? ...and the rest must be some kind of Canadian humor???

    Sorry, open your STORMS browser and type google mobile maps and when the web page opens click on "Google Mobile-Maps" after that you should see the page "Install Now". and then you should be good to go.

    Ok, I got it. You were assuming I had Google as my home page, as you must. Thanks for your help.

    This is strange that Google Maps 3.0.2 works with the GPS now. I downloaded it the day it was released and it would only lock onto my location using triangulation even after 3 days of usage. But I just ran the app today and now it is picking up my location by gps without a problem. Maybe, something needed to be activated on the google servers for this to be working properly today that wasn't previously activated. With the GPS addition, I am liking this app more than BB Maps.

    Does anyone see an arrow next to the blue dot that indicates which direction your are moving? On my AT&T curve Google maps used to indicate which direction you were going which was very helpful when driving.
