Google Maps on the Sidekick

If you’re like me and tend to get lost, then maps are your best friend. If you’re also like me, it’s a pain to try to fold those maps back up and stuff them in your back pocket. Mike writes in to let us know that Google Maps will now work on your Sidekick. It’s not as great as the developer builds of a Google Maps app that were floating around, but it will do in a pinch to help you find your way. Just follow this link to use Google’s more Sidekick-friendly maps. It’s also best if you switch to (Menu->View) Full-Size layout in the browser.

    I’ve actually been using Gogle Maps on the Sidekick for a while now. Yeah not too great but at least it works. I remember when it didn’t work.

  4. Betsy Says:

    Yes, you do.

    You need to be able to get online.

    How would it work without the internet? It’s GOOGLE maps that’s part of the internet. Also what Sidekick does’nt have the internet?!?!?

    There are people who don’t pay for the data plan.

    Meaning they don’t have internet. 🙂

    Oh Sarah then riddle me this. Why would someone pay hundreds more for a phone with internet and not have the internet service when there are better phones that are just a phone and no hundreds more for internet they don’t even get? Damn people are stupid in this country!

    Believe it or not, some people do buy it just for how it looks.

    Yea I believe it. Just goes to prove how stupid people have became over the years. Sad. But what does anyone expect when ignorance has been something to be proud of for the last decade. Messed up.

    Well dumbass, nice to know your such a CHUMP to pay for muptiple things that do the same thing already. I get all I need from my Sidekick, no extra virus-magnet/security hazard (computer) or whatever needed. So who’s the real IGNORANT *** now? Not to mention your too chickenshit to even use your real name “Anonymous “, so YOU know, lol!
