Google Maps Mobile Integrates GPS for Helio Drift

Google Maps Mobile is more useful if you have a GPS device, because you don't have to enter your location, in case you know where you are. Until your mobile phone has GPS, you can only crave for the newly launched Helio Drift, a Samsung phone created for Helio, that's GPS enabled and also works with Google Maps Mobile.

"We think that integrating GPS capabilities into Google Maps for Mobile will make our phones much smarter - and you've told us that too.

When you use Google Maps on the Helio Drift you always know where you are. Start Google Maps and a blue dot is placed on the map at your current location. You can even see yourself move on the map as you change location," emphasizes Alex Medina from Google.
