    Hi, It seems like Google Transit works on the Iphone, but not on the Ipod Touch because when I visit and submit a route, the page just stays the same.
    It seems like there is a problem with the recognization of the url or something? Is there a hack for this??

    One is that the firmware of your iPhone must be the most current
    (1.1.2) in order for the GT option to work at all. I was running the
    original firmware that shipped with the iPhone in June - for a number
    of reasons, not all of them important - and upgrading to 1.1.2 made th
    workaround I'll outline below workable where it hadn't been before. I
    was having much the same problems you were, and the firmware update
    definitely fixed t he translation between a web search at
    transit and the native gMaps application on the iPhone.

    Once your firmware is current, I think you'll find that searching from yields a short list of bus information -
    similar to what you're used to seeing on the left side of the screen
    in a desktop iteration, and very much like what you've requested here
    - but without the mapping. It's not perfect, but it's close.
    Bookmarking will get you there quickly, although an
    auto-complete of one's home address info, for example, would make the
    process slicker.
