  • MSN claims to answer the age-old question, "Where am I?" After you download the Locate Me software, you must click on the tab. The software tracks the location of your IP address to find you.

  • In our test of the Locate Me feature, zooming in simply pointed to the name of our city--not a specific address.

  • The mapping tool offers a scratch pad where you can save your searches. The tool will also locate businesses in the area. For example, you could search for nearby restaurants.
