Some of the guys in the London office have been working on the Symbian native version of Google Maps for Mobile over the past months and yesterday like expectant parents launched their baby to the world, so finally you can make use of your GPS powered N95 with Google Maps !!
This is a really cool application, if you have the most up-to- date Nokia firmware you can expect to see a map centered on your location as indicated by the little blue flashing dot now familiar to GPS Blackberry GMM users, within a minute.
Have fun its at www.google.com/gmm, should work with any S60 device with built in or bluetooth GPS.
Now this is something I will miss on the Jesus Phone 🙂

I downloaded that and have been using it this week-end.. its awesome… I’m not sure why N95 users will use Nokia maps now! Some photos and comments on the app are here – http://www.flickr.com/photos/gisuser/sets/72157602390210155/ – also a short quik take here – http://www.gisuser.com/content/view/12966/ – check out the audio clip at the bottom courtesy of utterz.. quite clever!
