    New version of Google maps for mobile! - track your friends

    The new version has a feature called Latitude. It allows you to have your location tracked by those in your contacts.
    You have the ability to choose who can track you and when.

    That is so cool now my wife can find out where I am or get a case of the ass if I block it.
    Glad I don't use Google anymore.

    I see that feature causing some issues for some.

    carz... it works fine for me. What problems are you having?

    fr4nk1yn, you can set your location manually to anywhere on a map.
    No one has to know exactly where you are unless you want to.
