Latitude worked for a few days on v1.17 but now it stopped working again!!
I have tested on 2x Nokia Lumia 800 and 1x HTC Trophy.
I seriously doubt that google changes their Latitude API this often. Are you not following their API correctly?49 votes
gMaps v1.18 is now available on marketplace
Currently we are working on grand release gMaps 2.0 where we will implement flexible update process for Google Latitude to decrease downtime in future from several weeks to several hours.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
Implemented and available starting from 1.25:
I think a user should be able to locate any nearby restaurants or anything of the sort while searching. For example if a user types "Safeway" it should process any nearby Safeway's in the area.
This could be really useful if a user is in a city visiting and wants to find a business or restaurant or even entertainment. Integrate directions along with the feature and it can be a really great tool.38 votes

Thank you very much for gMaps contribution. We really appreciate your efforts.
I use gMaps a lot for the traffic info. The issue I have is the floating window with my speed is blocking the travel info when I am headed NE. Please doc the speed along the side or have it trail my travel direction.
I love the product, I use it every day going to and from work.36 votes
