    In the marketplace, it lists the new features in the latest update. I believe there are 3 for this one.

    All updates subsequent to version 4.1.0 (released with the EVO) doesn't allow you to clear your past trip directions from the Layers menu. With 4.1.0 you could DELETE your past trips by the Clear Data button in Applications. All subsequent updates only let you Uninstall Updates thus rolling back to 4.1.0

    Just more junk in the EVO's trunk.

    Anyone know how to turn on the 3-D maps? the places app is kind of a faster way to search.

    As best I can tell, you touch the Navigation icon in your app drawer. That takes you to the Navigation home screen. Then tap the map icon in the upper right. I haven't tested it yet, but I believe it will go into 3D perspective mode as soon as you start moving. It's basically a way for you to use the Navigation map view without choosing a destination.

    The Places icon is in your app drawer. Places appears to be nothing more than a way to quickly initiate a search for pre-entered text.

    Thanks...but it's not there....very strange. Is it a separate download or something? I thought it came with the upgrade of Maps.

    Weird...I had to turn my phone off then turn it on again for the Places icon to show up.

    Add me to that list...

    Was Satellite View always available in Navigation? Also, playing with it I was briefly able to get a 2D view which I prefer for navigating, but I haven't been able to recreate that yet...

    For me, the places icon was at the end of the app drawer, not sorted, until reboot. I bet you guys didn't look that far down.

    I got it to go to 2D by turning on the traffic layer, then turning it off and stayed in 2D. Haven't played with it much more...there might be another way.

    That's the same way it worked for me the first time too. Now whenever I select traffic it zooms way out, and tapping the arrow to get the focus back to my location takes me back to the normal 3D view. I can only get the 2D view when just viewing the map, not when I have a destination set.
