I'm looking for a way to get Google Maps working on an iPhone running software version 1.1.3?

You've got two options

does anyone know?
Option 1: Update to Stock 1.1.3 without jailbreaking (probably not your first choice)

or

Option 2: Update to Jailbroken 1.1.3 using the "Official" Dev Team Jailbreak method (this is required because it is currently the only jailbreak method that updates the Modem Firmware to 04.03.13_G which is directly compatible with Google Map Locations without using 3rd party apps to help)

Link to method for this jailbreak:

based on that your asking how to get it to work im guessing you have 1.1.3 if so tap the map then when it loads tap lower icon in left corner that will display your location.. then you can type in directions from there to another address and move pin and all that jazzy stuff

It does not work on a jailbroken 1.13 for most people. To get it to work, you first have to locate yourself using Locate Me from Installer, then use the Google Maps function.

No, I use Locate Me first (which puts me on the other side of Boston, and then I use Google (which puts me right over my house.)

Hsve you tried to compare the two in other locations? Locateme works very well for me at home and several other locations I have tried it, but I haven't upgraded to compare it to google maps.

Yes, and I live in Boston. It's always very off for me.

i rejailbroke and everything is working fine on maps except one thing: the pinpoint feature
You mean the locater doesn't work? If so, if you didn't update the baseband, then it won't work unless you use the LocateMe app first. Then, until your next reset, it will work on its own.

I used iclarified's baseband updater to bring my baseband up to 1.1.3's. This solves the google locater problem and doesn't need 3rd party app assistance. It also solved a problem I had with iTunes, which thought my phone was damaged!

The iclarified method does come with risks, though, because people have had hit and miss results. So use at your own risk.

i have 04.02.13_G currently. can someone give me a quick explanation of what baseband this is? i don't understand the difference between baseband and bootloader.
