This weekend was a series of technology distractions…something that happens from time to time much to the chagrin of my ever growing “not done yet” list…
Somehow, I discovered that Google finally ported their mobile Google Maps to the Palm OS. When was this released and how was it that I missed it until now?!?
Google maps running on a BlackBerry was one of the envy’s of mine since I first saw it. To have the power of Google Maps in my Palm Treo while traveling would be pure luxury. Especially with the nature of business sales travel…rushing to a meeting without directions, sudden changes to schedules, new customer locations, not knowing where the nearest Peet’s Coffee is…oh how business travel has changed with technology.
After using Google Maps for the past few days, I think it has made to the list of “must haves” for my Treo. The real time traffic info was a life saver already. And the satellite imagery is as cool as always…I was amazed at the zoom level on the phone…it almost seems to allow a closer zoom than Google Maps online. I guess I finally have to get around to trimming that tree in the front yard and figuring out who’s white car that is in my driveway? 🙂
