Nokia N73 and Google Maps Mobile gets Cell and GPS support

Discovered from here that there is a new version of Google Maps Mobile for the Nokia S60 series of phones in SIS form ie native application instead of the previous Java J2ME.

The new version also has Bluetooth GPS support. Magic!

On your phone, go to www.google.com/gmm and follow the instructions.

Pressing '0' or selecting options>mylocation will use the data from which Cell you're in, and calculate your position. You can switch the display between map and satellite view. Its surprisingly accurate.

Pressing '2' switches between map and satellite view.

To turn on GPS support you have to switch to it. Options>Tools>Use GPS.
