4. The Internet and Other Networks > 41. Use Google Maps

Use Google Maps

Although Google provides access to maps for handhelds through Google Local, this handy program works very similarly to the full browser implementation of Google Maps.

It’s hard to overestimate the impact on the online map industry that Google Maps (http://maps.google.com) has had. The crisp, readable maps, along with the integration with Google Local, have made quite a splash in the online community. But most agree that the most innovative feature of the Google Maps interface is its clever use of JavaScript to create a user experience in a simple web browser, rivaling the most polished of desktop software without requiring browser plug-ins.

Use Mobile GMaps

You can use a program called Mobile GMaps (http://www.mgmaps.com/) to access Google Maps from your BlackBerry. It is available for free and you can download it over the air right from your device by going to their WAP interface (http://wap.mgmaps.com/).
