    Update:

    This sucks...I'm having trouble getting the patch to provide the same functions as before due to the changes Palm & Google have made.

    I'm posting a temporary patch here, so you can at least have easy access to Latitude for now...The only thing you have to do is use the "Clear Map" option in the map menu before you close Gmaps to remove the Latitude layer which you'll need to do in order for a global search to work correctly.

    Please use the temp patch because it may help to identify any other unknown issues I'm not seeing...Thanks.

    I also took the old patch done...As for now, I'm done because I need to rest.

    Patch creation is something I do in my spare time for myself and the Precentral community...If you use it, please take a moment to click the thanks button, as it goes a long way to keeping me motivated.

    Any new news from the developer of this patch? I love the easy latitude access this gave before the update and hope it's coming back soon.

    No revelations yet, but I'm still looking into it.

    For the time being, you can use the TEMP patch listed above...the only thing you have to remember is to clear the map prior to close the Gmaps app.

    I haven't given up...I simply haven't had a breakthrough yet...

    The problem doesn't seem to be on the server side because the method in the old patch still works under 1.3.5 with Google Maps @ version 7.9...

    I've been trying to determine if the cause is in the Gmaps code or something that's changed in the browser adapter...

    Here's the source for the 1.3.5 version on gitorious:
    google-maps-latitude-workaround.patch

    If you're meaning to try to work on it, good luck. If you want a .patch version, you'll have to PM me your email addy.

    Also, you should know the Gmaps app is basically webview widget much of the code devoted to building the url and connection related stuff.

    Hey, I looked over your patches and tried something for myself...

    1. Open the WebOS web browser login to Google.
    2. Then type, http://maps.google.com/maps/m?mode=latitude.
    3. Google maps will then load with Latitude.

    So the only issue with your patch is the lack of authentication. "Or so it seems" as long as you don't clear your browsers cache you can always enter the maps with Latitude enabled.

    EDIT: This was tested on 1.4.0 with no latitude patches installed.

    In order for google maps to work correctly within universal search or from a call from any other app, Google Maps needs to be 'clear.' That is google maps can't have google latitude loaded.

    Not be rude, but you may need to reread the thread...I never stated Latitude didn't work...The problem is being able to remove the layer automatically on exit.

    Again, the point of the patch was...

    1. To provide easy access to Latitude within the Gmaps app.
    2. To provide a way to easily remove Latitude.

    I've put in many hours between figuring out the original patch and troubleshooting something different now...I'm not some bigtime dev here(far from it), so I, and others I would suspect, would certainly appreciate any assistance getting it working again.

    Did you notice clearing the browser cache, or the history for that matter, has no effect on whether or not Latitude loads the next time you use the Gmaps app after the it's enabled?...You wouldn't want to clear the cookies either because it will force you to login to see Latittude.

    It would be great if we could simply use the clearoverlays() method from the Gmaps API, but I don't think it's possible.

    Anyhow, I'm looking forward to any useful input.

    Just a reminder, post #22 has a method to provide quick access to Latitude from within the Gmaps app with instructions on how to remove the layer.

    I in no way meant to sound rude. I was just referencing the authentication. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    EDIT: clearing all 3 options in my browser does make latitude disappear.

    Also, everything works fine even with Latitude loaded for me. I click an address in the browser and or a maps link from text and it automatically removed the latitude layer for me. Once i was ready to see latitude again I just ran my browser link.

    No prob here()...Forum communication can suck sometimes...I was hoping you wouldn't take my reply as negative because I simply wanted to clarify the current situation. Anyhow, I'm not sure how there would be an authentication problem, since the patch simply uses the URL.

    I've found this method doesn't consistently clear Latitude from Gmaps...Also, clearing the cookies should force you to have to login in the next time you use Latitude, if it actually clears it...Besides, it's not very convenient to have to do that if you should wish to remove the Latitude layer.

    I've also found not clearing the layer works for the most part, i.e. it doesn't necessary prevent Gmaps from working properly...It does yeild unexpected results sometimes though(usually with GSA)...Unfortunately, there seems to be an issue of consistency because the Latitude layer isn't always removed...In fact, my experience has been that it's rarely removed, as can be seen by tapping the My Location button.

    I am not sure exactly by what you mean on "clearing the layer "I know of the layer options in the web gmap"", is it like when you load Gmaps on webos with latitude and then click anywhere on the map that does not show a face and the friends option disappears? When that is done the search option comes back and you can also then get back to the latitude options "which i thought was the layer" by selecting your own image which stays through the above.

    I dunno, I am sorta confused. I am good with linux and scripts but this somehow baffles me.

    "text messages and forum threads sometimes get read wrong because of the lack of the emotion that we would normally see on someone's face."

    ...
    Clearing the layer is similar(not exactly the same though) to when you remove the traffic from the map...The layer would be considered removed when you no longer have access to Latitude functions, i.e. your avatar or friends list.

    It basically comes down to trying to control something happening on the server-side without directly accessing the API for it...For the most part, the Gmaps app seems to be primarily doing two things:

    1. managing the connection
    2. handling the URL


    Since Gmaps seems to work for the most part without removing Latitude, it may seem silly, but I'm not one who wants Latitude on by default...I'd rather be able to control it.

    At this point, the only 100% way I've been able to programatically remove the Latitude layer is by remove the cookies within the webview widget which has no adverse effects I can see to the normal functions within Gmaps...The major downside to Latitude is you have to login again to access.

    The best, possibly only, option in this scenario may be to store the login data locally via a cookie(Mojo style) to use whenever Latitude is being accessed...I've actually seen it done in the Logitude app via an open source php script on the forums here, but I'm not sure how to implement it for use in the Gmaps app.

    Good catch...Although, it appears the app you're referring to simply updates your Latitude profile with your current location, as apposed to actually accessing Latitude to see locations for yourself and others on a map, along with the updating.

    It leads me to wonder if the php script was used in some way because that's exactly what it does.

    Yes...Personally, I'm still interested in getting Latitude integrated into our version of Gmaps because it doesn't seem like Google is.

    Okay cool! I have seen the Google Latitude apps that have this function, but I like the idea of a Patch better. When I was using this Patch on WebOS version 1.3.5; I never had any Lag or Error issues. An app would use up more Resources while running in the Background. I am most likely going to get the Laitiude app anyways, because I like having more then one App and Patch doing the same job. Jusy like how I have a Patch to set my phone to Roam-Only, as well as the App that does the same thing. But I am very glad to see that you are going to keep working on this Patch!
