no you cant
Forgive me if I'm wrong
I hate to disagree with a SupMod but as far as I can tell mine works.
I just downloaded google maps and first it said that my device was not set up to use "My Location" but I went into the menu (soft right key) and clicked "Use GPS" the hit 0 [zero] for "My Location" again and voila it found me. If it could zoom in any closer it would actually tell me which room of the house I'm in. Its sensitive enough to track me walking around the house. I cant wait to play with this some more.
P.S. To bobjones207, if this is not the option you were looking for I apologize to n99hockey for doubting your wisdom.:foot:
and your using a Q9c?
go to help--about and scroll to the bottom
what does it say under myl:
perhaps this can help...you might not be using the actual 'my location' unless google maps updated there my location availability
Well there is no about under my Help, it is under settings but that doesn't have the myl you asked about. But I'm pretty sure its a Q9c (thats what I paid for ).
Ok I looked under the battery and it does say Q9c.
I downloaded the app from google.com/gmm using my phone if that makes a difference. It's on Sprint running WM 6.1.
its should say myl: aaaaaall the way at the bottom of that about page

I should have read your link before I responded. You ARE correct and I am wrong. I am using GPS not my location.
ok good to know just so we know whether or not google added the Q9c to the list of available phones

my bad, I thought you were talking about the Help from the Q to find the device model.
You may want to delete this conversation at some point so we dont get accused of hi-jacking this thread LOL
Thanks for getting me straight.
haha no worries....just info for other people to know
this is one of the most confusing things

I got this from MotoDev website,
Can I use the Microsoft GPS APIs with the Motorola Q device?
INTRODUCTION: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is the only fully functional Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). This utilizes a constellation of at least 24 Medium Earth Orbit satellites that transmit precise microwave signals.The system enables a GPS receiver to determine its location, speed, direction, and time.
RESOLUTION:Currently Motorola Smartphones MOTO Q 9h and MOTO Q 9c are equipped with a GPS receiver.
You can use Microsoft GPS APIs if the following registry key values are present:
For the MOTO Q 9c :
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver]
For the MOTO Q 9h:
CONCLUSION:All Motorola Q family phones includes the intermediate driver regardless of the GPS chip existence. To use Microsoft's GPS APIs, please ensure the above registry keys and values are present on your phone.
What happens if you do the change dns server hack? What changes on your phone. Does it go faster or something?
in theory, yes. Although I never really noticed a difference. I tried it a couple of times and then stopped bothering.
I downloaded the mobile registry editor, unzipped but when I open the .exe file it says "application failed to initialized properly.." I re-downloaded and same result.
It goes so fast the phone goes back in time!
ok. That might be a slight exaggeration.
It doesn't do anything on the Q9c.
It's another registry entry that gets ignored.
In all honesty you probably wouldn't are a big difference anyway.
Those of you having problems sending MMS messages.
Edit the Registry Key at HKLM\Software\Motorola\MMS\SP\Limits\MaxMessageSize. Mine is set at 3072, which is 3MB.
Works, tested by myself Motorola Q9C - Windows Mobile 6.1
Thanks for the reply, i just did the dns hack incase it might make even the littlest difference possible.
Oh and mxl, maybe your running the app from your phone, but the app is supposed to be ran from a pc. Make sure the files that were zipped in the .zip file are in the same directory as the mobile registry editor.
