    it's working for me just fine . . . did you perform a soft reset?

    the location search option shows towards the bottom of the search results.

    Really???

    All I see is the zip code I had entered in before that is cached.

    This is aggrevating- I wont even use this much but it is driving me nuts!

    Pimphand please confirm you are using an 800w and are not just seeing a cached zip code.

    Sorry for the false report . . . I had cleared the history and files but forgot to clear my cookies. So no, it's not actually working for me.

    When I was digging around Google's Gears site, I saw a sample webpage that demonstrated the geolocation abilities of Gears - http://code.google.com/apis/gears/sa...olocation.html.

    It worked for my desktop, correctly listing me in Cleveland, OH. However, when I tried my same link on my phone, it said I was in Oak Park, IL. Could be an incorrectly programmed cell tower? Regardless, it seems to be buggy in many ways.

    our phones do not support the cell phone triangulation that this service and the "my location" feature (without gps enabled) from google maps uses. Palm has blocked access to the radio information that this triangulation service requires to function.

    They recently provided an update for the centro to unlock it, but no word on the treo line. Not sure why this was even posted on "Treocentral" since it doesn't work on WM Treo's.

    I thought that might be the case.

    Thanks
