Google Maps Now Available For Windows Mobile (Motorola Q, Palm Treo 700w, etc.)

Posted on February 2, 2007 by Chris Duke

Google Maps is now available for the Windows Mobile platform. I just installed it on my Motorola Q and it is incredible!

Just point your mobile browser to http://www.google.com/gmm/winm and it will download a .cab file. Install it and go! It’s awesome… and includes satellite imagery, street maps, zoom in/out features (hit I to zoom In, O to zoom Out), search and direction features. It’s super fast too!

This is a must-have app, and it’s free thanks to Google. Go check it out! Here’s a screen shot I just made on my phone after searching for “space needle” and nothing else specific. It came right up, and all I had to do was to zoom in a few times.

    Excellent. Thanks for the tip, it worked great. The mobile.google.com site works like shit for the Q. I missed the maps, glad to have it working again.

    Ronald, you might want to unstall that and get WLS… it’s a better app: http://www.fullyconverged.com/2007/02/live-search-for-windows-mobile.html

    I’m going to be playing with the GPS turn-by-turn nav soon and will post my thoughts.


Got something to say?
