If you’re like me, you visit new places quite often and you need to find your way around. Or, maybe you’re just terrible with directions and you can’t find your way out of a wet paper bag, either way, its Google to the rescue.
For awhile now Google has offered Google Maps for mobile devices.
I installed it on my Blackberrry 7105t. I swear to the gods that be, I use this thing DAILY.
Finding stores: “Target in Stamford, CT“. BLAMMO! It finds it.
Directions: Get directions to and from a location.
Favorites: Store favorite locations, such as home, work, the wife’s office, etc. This saves a TON of typing on a handheld.
How to get it
Go to www.google.com/gmm on your mobile phone.
- Most Java-enabled (J2ME) mobile phones.
- Palm devices with Palm OS 5 and above.
- All color BlackBerry devices.
- Windows Mobile devices with Windows Mobile 2003, 5.0 and above.
I’ve seen it installed on Razr’s as well as a few Sprint phones (not sure what models) that have internet access.
Once you get this bad-boy installed, you’ll never be lost.
