Making Google Maps My Location work on the Samsung Blackjack

Google Maps My Location now works with Cingular/AT&T first generation Blackjack models thanks to the Jan 23, 2008 release of Windows Mobile 6.

To get it working you’ll need to laboriously upgrade your phone… a process that took me about 35 minutes. I’m sure if you’re already an ActiveSync master master you could do this in 10. I’ll write more about this later. For now… go attempt to upgrade, remember to FULLY BACKUP you phone. This means having your contacts, pictures, favorites/etc in a format not tied to an ActiveSync profile so that you can import them into WM 6 after the upgrade.
