On Wednesday Google Launched Google Maps with My Location.

This service is currently in beta but it’s very promising. It works by allowing users without GPS enabled phones to pinpoint their locations using their current mobile phones.

It works by locating the user’s mobile device through it’s transmitting signal using cell towers, rather than GPS.

It’s not as accurate (in the vicinity of 1000 ft) as GPS but as more people use the service its accuracy will improve.
