    list some of the cool and new features on 2.1 as i just installed the update and would like a condensed place to hear about cool things. thx
    edit: i woke the phone up and it partly cloudy outside so clouds scrolled thru the backround for a few seconds , kinda neat.
    I also tried the google nav with voice and im impressed. swithed to night mode automatically as the sun set. cool. oh and it self orientates now too

    I for one am really enjoying the updated layout of the market, but google goggles has seemed useless in my first few attempts at using it.

    yes, turn by turn is free and works great. google nav comes with 2.1 but you are prompted to download the voice feature from the market when you first try and use google nav through google maps.

    When you're at the Home screen and you press the Home button again, all 5 screens fly out like thumbnails and you can pick which one to jump to. Pretty neat.

    sorry, can't remember. it automatically went and grabbed it from the market as soon as i put in directions in google maps and selected 'navigate.' it told me i needed such and such voice program to run nav and asked if i wanted to download it. and i can't seem to find it in my phone anywhere. i do see something in my market history though that's titled pname:com.svox.langpack.installer. you could search by that.
