    Hey, I'm going to be visiting London in April. Presently I'm planning on buying a UK sim card for my MyTouch 3G to use while I'm there.

    However, I think my biggest need for data will be for finding my way around London. Does Google Maps work over there (I've somehow gotten the impression that it doesn't), or is there another map app that works with the GPS?

    Will appreciate any advice.

    Very good to know. Really not sure where I got the idea that it didn't.

    Thanks.

    Google maps works fine in the uk. Google navigation does not work though (so no turn by turn voice directions)

    I'm glad you are coming over. But it worries me that you thought Google Maps would not work. We're not a third world country you know ;)

    Google Nav can be made to work in the UK as far as I know. Either this site or XDA Dev will contain the necessary info.
