    The GPS service for my mom's medical alert service uses bing maps, and only shows the location on the map if using "Internet Explorer 8 and Apple Safari 4 browsers."

    I really would like to be able to use the service from my EVO 4G.

    I downloaded the dolphin browser and set the user agent to iphone / ipad , but that didn't solve the problem.

    Question: How can I see this important map which insists on IE8 or Safari 4 on my Android smart phone?

    Please help,
    Thanks,
    Mike

    Have you tried the other user agent settings (like Desktop)?

    You could also try a couple other browsers, like Firefox. Not sure it would help or not.

    Ur my hero !!!

    Even though the site specifically says it only works on IE8 and Safari 4, it turns out it does display the map on Firefox on the desktop, as well as chrome.

    Per your suggestion, I installed firefox on my EVO, and guess what: it worked!!

    AWESOME!!!

    This was really important because the whole point of the GPS / medical alert monitor was to be able to locate my mom. Now I can without trying to get access to a desktop pc or an iphone!
