Latitude is a new feature of Google Maps for mobile, as well as an iGoogle gadget, that 4-17-2009 10-37-18 AMallows you to share your location with your friends and to see their approximate locations, if they choose to share them with you.So now you can do things like see if your spouse is  stuck in traffic on the way home from work, notice that a buddy is in town for the weekend, or take comfort in knowing that a loved one's flight landed safely, despite bad weather.

 

With Latitude,  you  can see your friends' locations on a map, you can  be in touch directly via SMS, Google Talk, Gmail, or by updating your status message; you can  upload a new profile photo on the fly. It's a fun way to feel close to the people you care about.

With Google Latitude, you can:

  • See where your friends are and what they are up to
  • Quickly contact them with SMS, IM, or a phone call
  • Control your location and who gets to see it

On your computer: go to http://google.com/latitude from your browser and add the Latitude gadget to your iGoogle homepage. What's neat is that if you've installed Google Gears or if you're using Google Chrome, you can choose to automatically share your location from your laptop or desktop computer -- no smartphone required!

 

 

 

Initially, it will work on most color-screen BlackBerry phones, most phones with Windows Mobile 5.0 or later, and most Symbian-based devices such as Nokia smartphones . Just visit google.com/latitude from your mobile browser or from here  to know if Latitude is supported on your phone on not.
