    Google maps is a lot better than that disaster, Microsoft Live.

    GPS works. Got it running in the car on the way home from work. Picked up the signal fast and looks really good. Used a Pharos BT iGPS with my Streets and Trips GPS receiver. I set the system to manage GPS automatically and put the receiver on COM0. Worked like a charm.

    disaster? in what way? live has several features that google doesn't. disaster seems like a pretty strong word considering it's completely stable and by all accounts here, supremely useful. ...or do you just bash ms for fun?
    the only thing that google has going for it...faster, contact integration, in the case of dc more traffic mapping.
    live gives you the ability to search by keyword or drill down through categories.

    Love it - awesome and really works fast. Does not slow it down.

    I too have a standalone GPS unit but for the life of me I can't get it to be 'seen' by the Google Maps app. I'm sure I'm just not getting one of the specific settings right - and I know the device sees the receiver since my TeleNav app sees the signal, but just not Google Maps.

    I've messed with about every COM port and hardware setting, but still - nope. I need a specific settings direction. I followed one guy directions over on a Google Mobile forum, to the letter, but still - no go. I know it's just a tweak, so someone - step by step if you please. Thanks a ton!

    I tried live.... it was a disaster... sorry... maybe I should have said "IMO."

    No, I don't bash Microsoft... I actually like MS products and the company itself.... I like IE7, LOVE expression web... Some would call me a Microsoft drone... of course, I'm not since I simply like stuff that works.

    Try searching for a US Post Office in Live, then try it in google... Live sucks.

    I just have to disagree with this quote. As a engineer and mobile app designer, the windows live app for ppc is the best thing to come out of redmond since win2k. While this google product is nice, there are many things the msn live product does that are indeed more integrated. I think this is a first stab to appears winmo users, the google product needs more OS integration. Dialing a lookup is a bit kludgy, whereas with the MSFT product, it is much more built in.

    Can someone provide a link to the CAB file for the Windows Live app for WM5?

    Thanks for the link.

    In the immortal words of my favorite crystal-meth-reckless-driving-arrest-resisting-lightning-rod-for-riots poster child, "Can't we all just get along?"

    I think both apps are good. It's like have the choice to hook up with Jessica Alba or Angelina Jolie (in their prime). Either way, you win, and you get both.

    OT: I don't think you needed to add the "(in their prime)" disclaimer. They've never left imo.

    As an Astronaut and Father of Time, I can't agree with you.

    Best thing out of Redmond?

    Really...

    I just d/l and am eager to compare to Live which I've found pretty useful.

    I wish this version included trip details such as travel time and traffic delay like the java version. Otherwise performance is superior to anything else I've tried.

    To get it to work with the BT GPS (I have the i-blue from Tom Tom), you first have to go into the bluetooth menu by tapping the bluetooth icon and see which com port your BT GPS is set up on (mine is 4). Then, on the main screen, start, go into settings, system, GPS. Leave the GPS program port as none. Go to Hardware and switch it to your GPS com port (4). That worked for me. Sweet.

    Yeah, it's pretty good, right? I mean for a free app? I gotta say, it's better than having Map4PDA and .net on there, which I was ok with, until this baby hit!

    ITA. I'm no MS lover by any stretch but I have both apps on my handheld. I haven't tried either with my GPS but will one of these days.

    i love it but for some reason my gps isnt working. can someone please help me?

    Any recommendations for a standalone BT GPS receiver byitself to work with the new Google maps application?
    Thanks.

    I got my GPSlim 236 to work perfectly with Google Maps. Not that I will be my GPS receiver all to often as I have iGuidance on my 700wx. It's dead accurate on both Google maps and iGuidance.
