    I downloaded the Goggle Maps update (4.1.1) at work this morning. On the way home I thought I'd try it out, what a mess. It paralleled me on the highway far enough off that it kept "rerouting" me to get me on the highway I was on. So, I stopped, rebooted and tried it again, same results. Thanks to Astro, I reinstalled the previous version and all is good again. Anybody else seeing this problem?

    I used it yesterday with the update and didn't notice any major differences. When I was on the feeder road it told me when to merge on the highway and the same for exit ramps. Maybe the only difference which I haven't noticed before is that it tells me to slide to left when I'm turning. or making a U-turn.

    What the hell is slide to the left?

    Just in case anyone has been reading this. After the latest Google Earth update I reloaded the Google Maps update and tested it on navigation and it's spot on. So, it may have been nothing but for now it is all working fine.

    I was having serious problems with maps after the update came out. It took 20 mins for the phone to pull gps co-ords into the nav portion of the program. I have not been satisfied with the program after the 4.1 update. I have not tried it within the last week I'll have to give it another go.
