Hurrah! I just installed the new upgrade to "Where's My Droid", sent a gmail message to the Droid from my computer, and got back two messages, one with the latitude and longitude, and one with a map link!
Actually, that was the second trial. The first time, I got this message:
Unable to get Android's current location, but the last known location is:
but I think that is a Google Maps app problem. When I checked the Droid, went to Maps, and clicked the "find my location" button, the app did NOT find my location. I had to click again (this time nearer a window) to get the app to find me. This inability to find me in Maps has happened several times in the last couple of weeks. But "Where's My Droid" is working!
Just wanted to add that this worked for me on the verizon network. Could not get it to work until I read the quote above. Left the subject line of the email blank and just put the secret phrase in the body (deleted my auto-signature out of the email as well - not sure if that matters). Worked great.Didn't work. I gmailed the message from my computer, since I don't have a second phone available right now. The address was my 10 digit phone number @vtext.com, nothing in the subject line, and the special word in the body.
