    Has anyone else noticed that the locater function in google maps has greatly improved. Under version 1.X my location used to be within 10 blocks in Philadelphia. Tried it this morning and it put me within a block of my location. Amazing.

    Yes it works better. And the search function on this forum works as well as it always has too ;)

    Yeah I have noticed that. Before it couldn't even get a lock when I tried it from my house, but now it actually zero's in to the right street.

    For the Wi-Fi side of things, it probably means the database of Wi-Fi points has gotten more accurate as well, right?

    1.x used to put me within a quarter-mile, often to the structure or complex. 2.0 worsened that to a mile and a half. Not sure why (?)

    I'm upgrading to a 3G as soon as the line wait hits 0 minutes. The upgrade will be for the 3g of course. The GPS is more of a novelty IMHO.
