Fertig, the Guerrilla General. Sure it wasn't the same as it was before but it was still great.

Amazing thing - it does work when I turn of the radio - then it actually uses the GPS. How amazing is that? Is this because of GPSa vs. GPS, and not knowing which one to use. Can you please fix this? Driving my wife nuts - really nuts!! February 5, at 1: Got it working on my Nokia N I know the whole privacy thing is important but it would be fun to open it up so you can broadcast your location to any user, not just a friend. You could add a search like "show me males age within 5 miles of me", that kind of thing.

I hope this will be rolled out to Google Apps users, too! It would be a shame to be left out because I use another one of Google's services. I loaded it yesterday, and crashed my N It is unusable now and will have to have it re flashed this weekend costing time and money.

Why cant things be easy? February 6, at To the person having trouble with BB Storm It will not use the GPS on my Blackberry either. In fact, Maps 3. February 6, at 2: The igoogle gadget does not work if you are on your country page e. February 6, at 7: For anyone having the "The Latitude iGoogle gadget is not currently available for your location" error, read this: February 6, at 9: I find the options to add friends to follow a bit of a pain.

If you select a group, you have to manually check the checkbox next to each one to add them. I only have the option to e-mail the person if I'm on my computer through iGoogle. Another problem is that it is VERY painful to change my profile picture. A blank canvas shows up where all my pictures should be. Only white squares show up. I finally got the pictures to show up once and selected my picture and now I cannot change it to a different picture.

I have just my BB Pearl Flip last week Things are seem to be ok minus friend to be added yet! February 8, at Works fab on my grotty Nokia E51, I just wish I was smart enough to write a wordpress plug in or widget for google Latitude, though I suspect it's on it's way!

February 9, at 5: This is another great feature developed by google. I suspect a lot of people will use it. February 9, at 6: The new google maps mobile is way slower than the previous one. Finding your location; I have an E71, in the previous version it would find my approx location almost immediatelly, then it would turn on the GPS and try to find a more accurate position - I had never seen it miss i would always be in the big blue circle, usually very close to or right in the center, with or without GPS position.

Now it freezes a few times after I turn it on and gives me some random location of where I am I live in Brazil and once it actually told me I was in New York then it turns on the GPS and only gives me an approx location if it cant get a GPS signal Not to mention I now frequently find myself outside the large circle!

I cant help but wonder; will google continue to make high quality products for non-android phones, or will they just release quickie updates so they can say its not just for the android? As for a slight improvement on the feature, it would be nice for an "advanced options" allowing us to choose how often to update our location and if it should allow for GPS usage ex.

One could configure to update every 30m, always turning the GPS on good to configure this in our kid's phones! February 10, at 6: If you change the keybord from Samsung keybord to Samsung keypad that might help but only for 1 minute it will go back to samsung keybard again as it is my default keybord layout.

February 10, at 9: It appears that someone has grabbed the iPhone app name of Latitude. Is the iPhone app going to be called something different or will Latitude be integrated with one of the many other apps that use GPS combined with Google Maps? February 10, at 5: Also, I've been trying to add the gadget to Gmail, but I get "Invalid gadget specification. Ensure URL is correct and the gadget does not contain errors. Will you just integrate latitude into Chat in Gmail?

The goal should just be to integrate all means of communication via Google products with the location service through maps. I am longing for the day when I have one contact database from which I can communicate in any manner to my contacts in the context of some location software! The Palm Pre is definitely moving in the right direction! February 11, at 1: I have an Android and live in the heart of Silicon Valley.

February 11, at 9: Don't know why, but i install, use it 2 or 3 times February 12, at I have a Sony Ericsson P1i and the latest version i was able to download is 2. Version 3 however is the latitude version. Really strange because the version "My Location" is support in the 2.

Is there no support at all for sony ericssons? February 13, at 1: Does not work with Opera - a bit slow on the updating - even when refreshing. February 14, at 2: Ideally I'd like Latitude to be a separate lightweight application that I would always run on my winMo device. February 15, at I'd really love to be able to see the Google Latitude information in Google Earth Any chance we can see that soon?

February 18, at 8: I agree with Vince. This should be separate from Google Maps, because I hardly ever have that running unless I'm trying to find something or I'm driving there. After that, I exit the program so this isn't very handy. February 19, at 9: I think it would be nice if Google Latitude could use your location from calender, because my phone does not have a very good data plan.

February 21, at 9: It's gone from SFO to Boston. I'm facinated and bummed in equal measure. February 21, at The previous version s of Maps would automatically lock the numeric keypad on application start but the current version 1 does not, 2 requires the user to hold down the number keypad lock during input and 3 will not allow the user to lock the keyboard into the numeric keypad.

It's a small but mildly irritating issue simply because it was a nice feature. Otherwise it's great application that gets used everyday. February 23, at 7: February 24, at 9: Installed the new GMaps with latitude , phone broke, got a new one, can't log into latitude on the new phone; login fails. How would I go about setting up my google account for latitude on the new phone??? Please email me if at all possible: February 26, at The google map doesn't show my town.

That's weird, is there something wrong with my town? March 2, at So I used Google Latitude recently and I have a some requests. First, I'd love some way to set an update frequency on my mobile phone. Running Latitude decimated my battery power. Second, I would like to be able to force Latitude to use only one method of location finding e. Third, it would be cool to have it integrate with a flight tracker.

It would be cool if I could put my flight info on my calendar, then when that time came Latitude would use the flight info to then automatically update my position based on the flight tracking information.

For a person who travels for a living this would be a really fun feature for my family. They would love to be able to go just to Latitude to see where I'm at instead of switching between it and a flight tracker. Along those same lines, if I'm going on a road trip and don't have wireless access, it would be nice to submit a 'road plan' based on Google Maps directions.

When you're ready to go, you can click Start and Latitude will track you based on the directions you requested, and when you're out of range it will automatically update your position based on your planned trip.

March 2, at 9: Expanding on my previous comment, the road tracker bit could even be used for general aviation. In both GA and road trips, if someone drops out of coverage but doesn't come back when expected like the next major city or arrive at the destination then Latitude could email or call someone chosen by the user wife, parents, etc to alert them about the problem and give you a call to make sure you're okay. Just in case, you know? If something did go wrong, they'd know your last reported position, road plan or flight plan, speed, etc.

Also for tracking kids, spouses, delivery trucks - whatever - Latitude could alert someone to deviations in a route or waypoint acheivment times. A business owner could get an alert, look at Google Maps to find the delivery truck, turn on Traffic and see that the truck is stuck behind an accident.

You see where I'm going with this. March 2, at 1: March 4, at 6: The only way to resolve it is to do a hard reset take the battery out when the device is on. Looks like a memory leak problem. Their are a few complaints on crackberry so I know it's not just my phone with this problem.

March 5, at 8: This "coming soon" statement for the iPhone doesn't wash anymore, what's taking so long, I feel we're missing out big style. March 11, at 7: March 15, at 4: March 22, at March 28, at 3: March 28, at 9: Please allow Google Apps users to natively login to the iGoogle Latitude gadget. It really is crazy to have to make a fake gmail account or similar which will just mess-up contacts, IM, etc.

Please implement native Google Apps login for iGoogle right away. March 30, at April 1, at 5: Keeping gmaps in the background causes high data usage and battery in google latitude. Moreover if the gmaps is not open it cannot use the Latitude location sharing.

April 16, at 9: Folks, with regards to the Nokia Connection Drop problem, I found this and it's worked for my n For some S60 3rd ed. Select "Internet" if you have it or whichever APN group you want it to use.

April 17, at 4: April 28, at 7: April 29, at 2: While Google Latitude looks great, the lack of availability of Latitude API is stopping developers from producing quality realtime applications.

Most dishwashers have a pair of mounting brackets on top that are designed to be screwed securely to the underside of the cabinet or countertop. On some models it's also possible to relocate the brackets to the side of the dishwasher cabinet. In the case of a stone countertop, there are kits available for attaching mounting points directly to the stone with epoxy adhesive, or a narrow strip of wood or metal is sometimes installed across the top of the dishwasher opening instead.

Whichever method you choose, don't skip this important installation step. A fully loaded dishwasher can cause all sorts of damage if it tips forward out of its enclosure.

Skip to main content. Choose a Location The farther you move a dishwasher from a standard installation, the less convenient it is to use and the more it will cost to install in terms of materials and labor. Create Space Read the owner's manual for the dishwasher to determine the size of opening you'll need to create beneath the countertop. Make Connections A dishwasher requires three utility connections to operate. Attach Securely Most dishwashers have a pair of mounting brackets on top that are designed to be screwed securely to the underside of the cabinet or countertop.
