Track your Location with your Mobile Phone

The next time you get lost in a new city, Google will come to your rescue. Mobile phone users with the Google Positioning Software in their phones can now easily track their locations at inopportune moments.

When this facility was first introduced, it came with its own set of problems. Not more than 15% mobile handsets support the GPS, and the ones that use face a major crisis with regard to battery-life. Thankfully, Google has recently come up with a solution to this problem. Its brand new 'My Location' feature allows users to set their location despite not having a GPS-powered phone.

Available free of cost, it tracks locations on the basis of nearby mobile-phone masts. This simply means you do not have to type in an address to specify your location – just enter the number zero and wait for Google to get back to you.

Industry experts insist that the feature will take some time to display locations with total accuracy. Anyways, users do not seem to be complaining as long as they get exciting features on their phones, and that too free of cost!
