Tip: Latitude in Google Maps Now Has Google+ Integration for Check-ins

 

Today’s Google Maps update that included transit navigation is turning out to be quite the fun-filled hidden gem adventure. Our readers first discovered that you could start downloading maps for offline viewing, but there is also new Google+ integration in Latitude that hasn’t been pointed out anywhere yet.

All you have to do is update to GMaps 5.7, install Google+ (join too if you can), cruise to your favorite bar, sign in to Latitude, choose to Check-in, and then start adding Circles.  Once you’ve added your favorite Circles, press the big blue “Check in here” button and watch it post straight to your Google+ stream.

Ahh yes, integration into other Google apps.  We likey.

Cheers Ben!

    I’ll take an invite… and I’ll forward the favor to others once I get in.  I’ll also send you naked pictures of my dog… technically, he is wearing a collar though.

    Thanks in advance.

    The Google+ mobile app also contains a check-in feature in the steam page – it’s the familiar old checkmark, in the upper right part of the screen.  Looks like Google officially tied it together with Maps.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

It truly was a very challenging dilemma in my circumstances, nevertheless looking at the very expert form you resolved it forced me to weep with contentment. I will be thankful for your support and then sincerely hope you comprehend what an amazing job that you are putting in instructing people today all through your webblog. Probably you have never encountered any of us.

    • Anthony McNeil

      Sent you an invite, enjoy =)

      • Casey Puyleart

        I haven’t seen anything – was that sent to “purelyprimal” or “casey.purelyprimal”?  I probably should have been more careful about that…it should be “casey.purelyprimal”

        I appreciate the thought – hopefully I can still get one to come through.  =)

  • Colin Zack

    I don’t see an option for friends on latitude, just the others

    I saw the DL tweet (RT really) about G+ taking signups – I went – it actually let me enter my Google acct password! Then suddenly the screen flicked and I was back to the FIELD TEST crappola page.

    Frak!

    According to ReadWriteWeb today, if you clear your cache and go to http://www.google.com/plus you may be able to sign up now…apparently it is working for some people and not others, but worth a shot. My invites don’t seem to be doing the trick any more (using the method detailed here the other day).

    • GadgitGurlRN

      Didn’t work for me.  I would love to get an invite though
