    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    well, nice to see there are still updates for this'n'that trickling out of HP, even if they seem inconsequential.

    we're all thinking the same thing here, so I will just say it. HP Maps will only stay relevant until NDrive finally pushes things out into the App Catalog. Didn't they promise November?
    Touchpad 16GB
    Pre3 (UK)

    how can they test ndrive for the touchpad, when the touchpad doesnt have gps? either way it requires some form of external bluetooth device, and even if they did use 1, which 1 do they use? would it work for every other external device?

    theres a lot of instant fail factors when testing/using it on the touchpad.

    I've got this update on my Veer, Pre3 and TP. If I switch on my Pre2 it may update as well.

    howcome my Touchpad locks onto my coordinates almost instantly then? If it doesnt use gps there is some crazy trickery going on.

    it uses the location your wifi is nearest to as default, because a wifi/router will be set against a phone number which will have a postcode asociated with it as well.

    not much use on the move in a car unless you have an external mifi unit with gps built in.

    At least in the US, I believe the TP was/is using the good ole google streetview snooping WiFi signals to map to GPS.



    Anyways, as was said, I found it funny when the update popped up on the Pre3 this morning. Just thought to myself, "self, webOS is still alive with "HP" (we know it's Palm) updating their own apps".
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    they do have a touchpad beta version (i got it) bit of a pain testing it tho when theres no virtual keyboad (hell of a show stopper) to type anything and ofc no sensible way to get gps bolted in.

    makes it far from an easy install and go app.

    I find the TouchPad google location to be better than my Pre's GPS location.

    I'll never consider another Ndrive product after buying their maps for my Pre2. Overpriced crapware from a company with extremely lousy customer support is the best way to describe them.

    Huh??? I don't have a home phone, and my wireless access point is ancient, in the basement, and behind multiple firewalls. Google (or anybody else) cannot locate my TP any closer than half of our local county, and I'm guessing that is done by referencing the IP address block being used by our cable company.....

    They scan access point IDs with their streetview cars
    Alternatively they can collect access point IDs and get a phone to report those along with GPS coordinates

    try a whois site with map ability.

    Locate IP Address Lookup Show on Map

    ^ that one shows exactly where i am, my provider/etc. Dunno if that 1 works for you but there will be plenty of similar sites that know exactly where you are just from ip address/etc, even if the closest it gets is your local cable/telephone exchange.
