    Hybrid and traffic work for me in city areas but not in the rural areas by me. I'm not surprised at all. I got google maps to locate me once but after than i cant get it to work anymore. Oh well.

    My Locate Me is interesting to say the least...

    This technique worked, however Google's Locate Me puts me in a huge circle several blocks to the Northeast. Meanwhile, Navizon's slaps a pin down on the exact building I'm in.

    Kudos Navizon.

    The reason it works is because it also uses wifi beacons that have been mapped to help narrow down your location.
    try it yourself; remove the sim and make a 911 call. your phone should say emergency calls only without a sim.
    the way this works is that the phone will scan ALL supported frequencies and then camp on a carrier as i stated earlier.

    do some research before making such declarations! i design GSM/WCDMA networks for a living ...

    I think for hybrid is a other reason... if i go to New York... I can use Hybrid and Traffic Mode! But if i go to Germany... no traffic and no hybrid...

    Well, I've noticed that Locate me method doesn't work for me. BUT... The navizon method does work but it's pretty incorrect with it's location so I hate even seeing that damn pin drop down.

    Well after I turned off my phone and booted it back up i opened Navizon and only let it load for about 2 seconds, it tried to locate me but before I even let it finish I clicked home (again without letting navizon open google maps for me) I opened Google maps myself and sure enough the locate button worked on google maps.

    Now I did this on my wifi network I have no idea how this would work on EDGE network but should still work.

    Hope this helps some of you guys out.

    It worked for me after installing Navizon. The reason it works is because Navizon has good coverage of wlan access points where I'm located. When trying to locate me natively in the maps application I can't be located. So Navizon locates me and displays it in the native maps-application.

    I get hybrid and locate (to within about 20 metres of my house) here in West Australia but only if Navizon is installed (although, so far, Navizon has never located me). Oddness.
