I remember seeing something written on one of the mobile sites about an app that you could get for the droid that would allow you to invite your friends and then see them on a gps map. Anyone know what it is or remember seeing it written too?

I remember reading about the same thing a little bit ago. I can't remember where or if it was for the iPhone or not. My friend used to brag about all of the stuff he could do with his phone. Heh, the day I got the droid he played with it for more than I had at that time. But yeah, I want to say my friend told me about this for the iPhone, but I would like to see it for the droid.

Just found it... already installed in maps on the droid.

You just open the maps app and then select menu, select more then latitude.

You can send a friend invite to anyone who has the app and see them on a gps map. way cool

You can also go to google.com and search latitude to see what other phones are available. looks like winmo, iphone, bberry and other are avail.

it's come in handy when looking for someone when you're trying to meet up with them somewhere. also to see how far away someone is when they're meeting you somewhere (so they can't lie and say they're closer than they are)

they take fairly decent steps to keep it from turning into a stalker tool though.

This feature isn't ready for prime time. In tests over the last couple of weeks covering several states, Latitude frequent fails to update in a timely manner, frequently reverts to old data which it nevertheless reports as new, and in one town could not pinpoint a location within several blocks, even when left overnight.
