Google Location Based Services (LBS) : Latitude

Just discovered a new application by Google, location-based services (LBS), namely Latitude. With this application, now you can share your location with your friends and buddies! You can even contact them using IM, SMS or voice call.

The interesting part is actually the Nokia e71 or any Symbian S60 devices are supported beside using the PC web-based iGoogle.

What you may see from iGoogle Latitude page as below :


From my Nokia e71 Google Maps Latitude :

To install on your e71, simply browse to and install the latest version of Google Maps.

Upon completion of installation, click on the “Latitude” in the options menu and sign in using your google account.

You can update your location by set it manually or detect by itself using built-in GPS or AGPS compenents. ( Press “0” to look for your current location in Google Maps )
