Update Google Maps V1.70.2 S60v3



Google Maps Mobile has FINALLY been updated to a native S60 application, and even supports the N95's internal GPS! You can see the white GPS dot on the screenshot. Other than that, it looks pretty similar to the old version, only faster since it's native.

Go to the link below in your phone's webbrowser:

You haven't mentioned the half of it. Just installed it following Rafe's item in the "news" section. He describes the GPS-aware satellite view as "magical" and I have to agree with him. It's like science fiction.

but one problem, can you download the map you want and save it on the phone without the need to have a WLAN or GPRS data plan to get it ?

If Google used the same maps as Nokia, that would be possible, but for me it's the satellite image maps that are most impressive, and you could never download them as they would be massive (probably 100s of Gigabytes for UK alone).

The map. It uses a data connection and downloads the data on the fly. This is my goto app for GPS now cos its even useful when i walk the dogs in the woods. Ok so I can't see the paths cos of the tree cover but at least I can't get lost as I always know what direction to head in to get back to the car

I have to say, having an N95 without an unlimited data package is like having an Aston Martin with the top speed limited to 30mph
