This is awesome! Google Maps for Mobile can now display your location on and via your cell phone. Google uses cell phone towers to ping your mobile phone. A blue dot appears on the map, marking your location if you have GPS on your phone. If you don't have GPS, a blue circle appears on the map, representing your approximate location. It's like having a gigantic fleet of satellites, all tracking where you are. Never taking an eye off of you. Always watching. Stats for Google Maps for Mobile Trending: Older & Mild
