Get my current location with Google Map and your phone



===========================
-->
Do you know that you can determine your current location with your smart phone and Google Map. All you need to do is to press the key 0 (zero). It is very useful when you need to use your phone to get directions to other locations or to find a nearby restaurant, etc. It works even if your mobile phone don't have GPS.

Your current location will be indicated by a flashing blue dot if you have GPS or a blue dot surrounded by a light blue circle if you do not have GPS:

And if you want the GPS Coords, refer to How to get GPS Coords from Google Maps.

To get started, go to www.google.com/gmm or text "BLUEDOT" to 33669.
