    They've included 5 experimental labs to play with:
    1. Scale bar on map for distance
    2. Terrain layer
    3. Popular categories
    4. Layer button (onscreen button)
    5. Compass arrow

    Had to do a battery pull and restart to get a GPS lock. Otherwise all is good. Looks like new toys to play with!

    For me its very laggy and it takes even longer to find my location via GPS.

    The Popular searches is really nice - saves time/typing.

    Windows Live Search had that feature on my BB, adding to Gmaps is a real plus...

    The distance scale bar is way overdue. I'm glad they finally added it.

    Took 30+ seconds to load up up. So it maybe doing stuff in the background while you think its not loading.

    EDIT: Got to "What's new in Maps?" Screen, but unable to load anything after. A restart does nothing. This is ridiculous.

    Does anyone know how to calibrate the compass? It's definitely not right on mine - shows south when I'm facing west etc.

    I let it sit there for 5 minutes and it just reports "Data connection lost, retrying..." over and over.

    Check the comments in the market -- you will see a lot of people with the same problem.

    Htowngtr,

    After a half hour, it magically resolved itself. I decided to pull up the app and instantly, it was there. Try this:

    1. Do a factory reset.
    2. If you have any Task Killer app installed, or an antivirus app installed uninstall it.
    3. Update to latest maps.

    I was using Look Out antivirus and ATK, and I'm thinking they had something to do with the proper installation going wrong.
