Some interesting things to note:
The Version string of the Maps app is different in the emulator than on the phone as well.
Emulator: "3.2.0 (#3232) Web"
Phone: "3.2.0 (#3232) gmm-google"
Also, there was a blog post put up before 1.5 was released showing a way that you could spoof the ANDROID_ID on the phone by modifying a database (article here
). I don't know if this is valid since at the end of the article he stated that they were supposed to fix it with 1.5.
: I may have gotten ahead of myself. The ANDROID_ID string I think is not the correct one that I was looking for. That seems to be unique to the phone and not to the model, maker, whatever.
