Google Maps for Mobile gets 'virtual GPS'

Published by at

It seems I just can't keep up with the news today! Google just upgraded their free Maps for Mobile client ( on your smartphone) to v2.0.3, adding a 'virtual GPS' feature (thanks Stefan), in which your location on non-GPS devices is estimated based on cell tower information. Google is an amazing company. Also (unrelated), they're investing in green energy in a big way, yet more brownie points from me.
