    Has anyone used the new maps.google.com service on their Treo 650? I'm on backorder but am curious, how well does it work? Does the 'scrolling map' feature function on any browser?

    Tx!

    It uses some dynamic HTML/Javascript that flusters the browser.

    Maps.google.com still does not support PDA browsers, and I'm not aware of a WAP version available yet. But MapQuest works fine on Treo650 and PPC6601.

    Man I tried Google maps on my desktop and it was a piece of crap. What's all the hoopla about?

    Mapquest fine on 650? I think not. The squeezed version of Mapquest wastes half the real estate of the 650 screen leaving you with a 3 street view that is useless. The normal version is so bloated with stupid ads that a simple search takes forever. Then, when you go back or forward your text boxes are erased. How exactly do you claim "works fine"?

    You're using the wrong URL. The mobile MapQuest URL is http://www.mapquest.com/pda/directions.adp

    Google maps on your desktop? I was speaking of

    http://maps.google.com/

    Way nicer the mapquest. Well, to each their own I guess

    I'll just test it when I get my Treo 650 sometime in 2007

    Wow!! Google maps is FAST. No extra features, but it produces nice maps and directions very quickly.

    google maps is pretty cool! I like maps.yahoo myself. But you are right - to each his own.

    Maps on the treo works great with express!

    Express keeps giving me wrong directions. I am not sure why...

    I normally use Yahoo Maps on the Desktop. The Mapquest mini is wasteful with the half-sized map (I think they make it for phone usage instead of PDAs). The google map has a refreshing interface. I'd like it better when they include the "nearby business" feature. This is help to get out of the dog house. Find the wife's business address and then click on "nearby business" to find a florist nearly by to deliver. If you have never sent flowers to your wife at work, you have missed out on the best night ever (if you know what I mean). Think I am kidding. Send some flowers to her office and she won't stop "thanking" you enough.

    maps.msn.com is also pretty robust.

    Uh- no. that one wastes real estate. It's like you're back to the days of a tiny phone that claims to have "internet".
