Google Nexus One owners today can download the first version of Google Earth for the Android platform. While a version of the app has been available on the Apple iPhone OS for some time, Google's own Earth-sized mapping app has finally come to Google's own OS. Most of the same features are available on the Android version, including layers for points-of-interest and terrain mapping, as well as a Panoramio layer to view user-submitted pictures of various spots around the globe. Unlike on the iPhone OS version, Google Earth users on Android OS 2.1 will not be able to sign into their Google profiles to load their own maps from Google's My Maps service. The Android version also currently lacks the accelerometer support found on the iPhone. The Google Earth app, which appears simply labeled "Earth" in Android, is available for free from the Android Market.

It has FREE VOICE turn by turn directions with Google Navigation. Its so much better than the charged apps on Verizon/ATT. The detailed precision of re...

Oh wait, it doesn't.

LMAO! I logged in just to "LOL" at that! 😁 🤣 😁
2.1 is coming.

The ONLY thing preventing it working on 2.01 is Googles internal code checking. I have it running on my phone now with 2.01. So the phone is capable, the software is capable, but for whatever reason Google didn't release it for 2.0...
I've run out of counter-argument for you. Although, I doubt it would matter, since you aren't open to actual discussion, you just want to state your opinion as fact. You're a step below a religious zealot when it comes to rational discussion. But m...

Now if they'd only hurry and release it on Verizon I'll be one happy guy.
Yup can't wait for this to come out on verizon, although I might have to give up one of my data plans! 🤣
