Since firmware 1.1.3 you can pinpoint your location with google maps on your iPhone.

I found this an awesome tool but the problem is, that where i live, it’s far from exact. It shows me a circle of about the whole city, and honestly, i already know in what city i am.

In my search for something better, i found this little tool called Locate me.
It’s still not 100% accurate, but it shows me about 1 block of where i really are, and that is a huge improvement over the standard functionality of the google maps app.

Let me show you where you can find and install this app.


1) Go to your installer, utilities and install the Locate Me app.

2) After installation open the app. (make sure your wi-fi or EDGE is on) And click the big show in map button. If will show you

This is a very good replacement for the standard google maps function if your position is not accurately enough.

This little app is available in the Installer.app under category Utilities through the PolarBear packaging source, see our sources page.
