Is this the deal that will bring it?

Google, Vodafone agree to develop maps


LONDON (AP) xxx8212; Vodafone Group PLC, the world's largest mobile phone network operator, said Monday it agreed with Internet search leader Google (GOOG) to develop maps for mobile telephones.
Vodafone said it will, in conjunction with Google Maps, provide easy-to-use maps, local listings and search and navigation capabilities.

"Vodafone sees Google Maps as a new milestone in the relationship that both companies are developing. It is a prime example of how Vodafone, through its location service and distribution scale, can complement Google's products and unlock mass-market access to exciting services," said Frank Rovekamp, global chief marketing officer of Vodafone.

If you're going to try TeleNav, try MapQuest Navigator too. I used both for about a month and decided to keep MapQuest Navigator.

I only see Telmap as available for the 7100 and 8700. Anyone know if it works on the Pearl?

Default GPS on Windows Mobile

Google Maps


New! Just launched:

Contacts integration and GPS functionality make this version of Google Maps, available for Windows Mobile 2003 and higher, even easier to use. Download the CAB, or visit Google Maps on your mobile web browser.

Get GPS-Enabled Google Maps on your Helio Drift
GPS functionality helps you find yourself (the little blue dot) right on the map. Just navigate to your Apps menu to download.

Now you can download Google Maps on your Palm OS 5 device. Download the PRC, or visit Google Maps on your mobile web browser.
