Yes, it finds the place quickly - the map is instantly readable - but the Kindle Fire is not powerful enough to keep the street picture on screen for more than a nano second. Not good for this tablet - sorry.
I've only given this 3 stars for now for two reasons: Too early to really judge. It crashed after a few minutes. Admittedly the crash was probably a glitch with my ISP,but it was a bit frustrating. The scary thing is,it knows where I live(almost).
Great way of finding your way about in areas new to you. I was only wanting to find may way through a built up area but it was great. I am sure it won't be the last time google maps will be a great help!
Well it is one of the worst google map aaps that i see. I searched with "Waitrose around me" or "waitrose near me" nothing came up. I am also quite disappointed with limitation of apps on Kindle. I cant go ahead and install indian newspaper on it which is a shame.
