Does anyone have this working on a mobile device?

I have the latest version installed but it just says that my location is unavailble?? (Okta touch).

According to this item it should now work in NZ -

Yes it works for me but i seem to notice that it only works once the internet connection is live on the device in order to download the maps as well.

Did you get this working? I have tried on my Apache and I permanently get the, "Your current location is temporarily unavailable" message displayed. Is there anything special required to get this working (I mean without a GPS connected)? Or do I need a Windows Mobile 6 device?

Any excuse to update my aging Apache accepted :-)

PS. I have GMM version installed.

Any update on this? (Now that I've got myself an Okta Touch)

I read that if you go to Help/About in Google Maps and scroll to the bottom "myl:" should = something other than N/A for you to get a location. Mine never has.

Have also tried changing the "Location Settings" in the phone setup which were disabled - this didn't seem to make any difference either.

Has anyone got "My Location" working on Google Maps on the Okta Touch?

Cheers, Tim

Works well on my BlackBerry 8310 Curve when I am inside and away from satellite coverage. Of course the accuracy leaves alot to be desired.

Perhaps the Google software doesn't know how to obtain location for CDMA cell-sites?

It does not work on the CDMA devices unless you are connected to a bluetooth GPS.

Sadly it does not find the internal GPS in the Nokia 6275 even though MGmaps found it successfully.

The GSM version is hidoeusly inaccurate when it cannot get a trilocation or you are in the wops. but it did work on my E50

On my N73 sometimes it is accurate within a few metres, other times it is up to 1700m out, or it cant get the location at all.
