    It's doubtful. Even if they would, they probably wouldn't too useful or accurate as the Pre has no digital compass.

    Don't ever count on it. The pre, by far, has the WORST version of google maps of any mobile platform. Heck, it isnt even a dedicated app, but only a webapp. No layers, no compass, no street view, no advanced search options, so saving favorite places, etc.

    Actually, there's still hope. Pranav Mistry says he's going to release the source code for sixthsense sometime soon. Based on the TED sixthsense presentation, I got a sense that his design called for a 2-device setup: an I/O device that would take in sensory input from the surroundings, and a processing device (the two likely connected using Bluetooth). It's still possible to use a webOS device as the processing device and the I/O device (which, they say, they cobbled together from $350 worth of electronic devices) could be another device and that's where the magnetometer would logically be located.

    If and when the source does get released, I'd love to work on porting it to webOS / Linux.

    Actually, it is a webapp...

    When Google updated it to include public transportation directions, they simply updated their servers rather than updating the app on the phone. Hence, it's a webapp.

    Wow...if you're going to call someone clueless, you better be sure you're correct. The Google Maps app is simply a web browser widget pointing to the Google mobile web site.
