Google Tracker with Latitude: I was totally impressed with Google Latitude in action (using my computer). Imagine having a GPS device using either your cell phones or computers with Google Tracker with Latitude. The new Google tracker, that is, the Google Latitude is a cool software/application for GPS-enabled phones. However, not all cell phones are supported. Google is trying to improve Google Latitude or Google tracker by way of supporting more phone models in the near future and as a cell phone fanatic myself, I believe this is really a good news.
In installing Google latitude for your mobile phones, follow this simple procedure:
For Android-powered devices
1. Check that you have the latest system update that includes Maps v3.0 and above. You can check which version of Maps you have by opening the Maps app and selecting Menu > More > About.
2. Open the Maps app and select Latitude from the main menu.
Symbian S60 devices
If you are on S60 3rd ed. FP2 phone (Nokia 5320 XpressMusic, 6210 Navigator, 6220 Classic, 6650, N78, N79, N85, N96, N96-3), you’ll need to set a default destination using the following steps:
1. Go to Settings > Connection > Destinations > Options > Default connection
2. Select “Internet” (if you have it) or whichever APN group you want it to use.
Please take note that Google advises that “some older Java MIDP devices cannot support Google Maps for mobile version 3.0 and above and will receive the most recent compatible version without the Latitude feature” so check your phones first for compatibility.
Alternatively, you can install Google Maps for mobile version 3.0* and above by pointing your mobile web browser to http://www.google.com/latitude, the official Google website stated.
