Anyone got Google Maps to work?

I'm trying to use Google Maps and it takes me to a website that says it's not supported on my device. What am I doing wrong?

I thought so! What am I doing wrong? I installed the .cab (which gives me an icon that is a blue rectangle, rotated by about 45 degrees, with a lower-case white g in the middle of it). When I click on it, I get a white box at the top of the screen, with a field to type in, and then a big red M (mail?), an icon with a map with a pushpin in it, a "you tube" icon, and some other thing. I click on the map icon, and it says "not installed" (plus something else that disappears too fast for me to see). Then it activates a browser, which goes to a site that says my device is unsupported. Did I install some sort of google taskbar instead of the maps?

Yeah, they have a "mobile" tool pack. I installed that one my last phone by mistake. Let me see if I can find the right link.

aha! I had installed "Google search" by mistake. This works - thanks! It doesn't do spoken driving directions, right?

You have to install via the Internet Explorer browser, not Opera.
