    First off, I have a droid and my wife has the droid eris.

    1. I have her listed in mycontacts on gmail and she is in my contacts on my phone, but when I tried to add her on latitude, she wasn't listed. By the way, it was set on all contacts. The only way I could add her was by actually typing in her email address. Does anyone know what's going on with this?

    2. When I bring her up in latitude, the only contact options are by gmail, or google talk. When I do the same thing from her phone, there is an option to call, email, shout out, etc.... Are the contact options in latitude different for android 1.6/2.0, or is this a glitch?

    I know it's not really a big deal, I can just exit maps and call her. But it would be very convenient if I could just call her from latitude. (When I get off work, I just check latitude to see if she's still at work or if she's home already.)

    1. I'm having the same problem. The only person that I sent a "formal" invitation to through my Google online account via my computer is not on the list.

    2. Where did you see these options? When I typed in my friends email address (the one that I sent the invite to), all it said was "add friends" then off it went.

    Those contact options I was referring to were only available after we had already added each other. When in latitude, if you click on a friend's icon, then click on the word bubble, it will bring up a list of ways to contact that person.

    This is a response that I got in another forum. Worked for me so far but I haven't had a chance to test it out fully:

    You have to go to your Gmail contacts and change the Email Address Label for each contact.

    My contacts that have email addresses were labeled as "Other". When I changed the label to "Home", they started showing up in Lattitude.

    Also, on the Droid, I had to do a manual sync for my Gmail account after I changed all the labels.
    Menu / Settings / Accounts & Sync / Select Gmail / Menu / Sync Now


    I had also posted a question on the Google Latitude forum and the official response from the Google rep was that they know there is a bug with not all names showing up which they are working on fixing.

    You and your wife have the same phone combo that I have with my wife. There was no problems getting the two phones to see each other on the maps. I am very curious to hear how accurate her eris is with indicated location vs actual. My wife's isn't so accurate.
