Share Your Location with Here for Windows Mobile
Have you ever been out and about, only to discover a fun new place? Perhaps you’re stuck in a bad part of town and want to arrange for someone to pick you up. Whatever the case, there are plenty of occasions in which being able to send your exact location quickly and easily proves beneficial.

Windows Mobile users looking to get started in easier location sharing should proceed to the application thread. Those who still prefer the native Google Maps application for Windows Mobile can obtain the latest version on the official Maps site.
