    Great news for iphone (and itouch possibly??):

    A pre-release build of iPhone OS 2.0, currently in the hands of select developers and beta testers, includes a new live location tracking feature that will automatically track the user’s current location in the Maps application on a persistently updating basis. So, for instance, driving down Broadway in New York with an iPhone would result in a constantly moving blue, pulsing ball indicating your current location. This makes the iPhone’s “Locate Me” function feel much more like a real GPS.

    At this point the function (along with the entirety of iPhone OS 2.0) is somewhat flaky and slow, but promising.

    right. Thats what I think. I would have bought an iphone, but I have a CDMA (no sim) cell phone service. =(
    USCC sucks because of that.

    on the ipod i noticed that when i push the localization button it doesn't pop up "your localization could not be determine" anymore. it just keep searching. Maybe, even if he could locate me, the app would still update in real time the location.
