    FYI, a few things I have noticed regarding Latitude and the iPhoon spoof patch,
    I had the iPhone patch on my pre, and it was working, but one thing I did not like was that I could no longer do a global search and then click on Google Maps to find something on a map, it would keep "loading friends" and then not perform the search. I then removed the patch, and now I can search again. And if I want to go to Latitude Maps, I just use the link of Google Maps and then it loads my friends.

    i have a question about google maps, but i don't feel like starting another thread for a simple question.

    anyone know why when the palm pre calculates my location, it's really wrong? it's so far off, like a thirty minute drive from where i actually am. :/

    if she has a gmail account use that one otherwise you'll have to use the email address she uses the most and then link it as a google account

    I put in my husbands e-mail address and it didn't work when he went in. Possibly because it was a yahoo account. Anyway, I sent the link through a text message and he was able to get on that way.

    if you send a request to her phone activate it through a computer browser and then go back and click the google latitude link on the pre... she may have to resend you a request but it should come up with a blank face on her location

    You have to go to use the link on your Pre to access latitude. After you log in, Google Maps will launch and the friends button will appear.

    Everything works fine for me except that I don't have my image displayed.



    I use a Google Apps email, not Gmail. I have that Google Apps email account tied to Pre on all related apps. (calendar, contacts, email, chat, etc.)
    If you have any idea how to fix that issue, please let me know.

    I'm pretty sure you need the iPhone user agent spoof for this to work. I could be wrong but I think I remember reading that it was required to trick google into thinking you're on an iPhone.

    If you have Google Chrome installed on your PC, you can test the maps... they work (minus the GPS location). Patching the browser to a iPhone user agent does nothing special in this case because Pre supports already the Latitude technology, or else you would not have Google Maps installed on it.

    Do you use a gmail account or Google Apps?
    BTW, I just tracked one of my friends, so everything works well without the patch.

    Thanks, I have v.6.7 as it turns out, navigating to that link you mentioned:

    Google Latitude

    does make latitude work in the current session, but as mentioned before clearing the map or starting the google maps app fresh does not incorporate latitude. So each time you start google maps, you need to from within a browser using a bookmark.

    To add the bookmark, just add a bookmark for google.com then edit the bookmark, change the URL and bookmark name.
