    Is there an app either pre-loaded on the Captivate, or one I can get from the Market, that will just show you where you are right away, without you having to enter a destination, and as you move around it will update your location, maybe with Street view or 3D or something? Maybe Navigation does this and I don't know how, but when I start Navigation it wants me to enter a destination, and I don't have one :) Thanks.

    Open the "Maps" app that came with the phone.

    Press Menu -> My Location.

    You can also Press Menu -> More -> Labs -> My Location Button. This will add a little blue button on the map that you can push to show your location (save a step). I don't know if you're new to this forum, but the GPS is flaky so you'll see some problems with accuracy.
