    The Blue Arrow only pops up if Navigation is active. Look for a icon called 'Navigator' or 'Car Panel'. That should launch it.

    He is talking about the google maps update, not the 2.1 update.

    No, it is an app icon on the Eris now.

    After installing the Maps update, I restarted Sense UI and the "Navigation" app appeared in my app launcher. Very nice. I was previously using a 3rd party app for that purpose.

    I'm in northeast Ohio along with 7 other Eris owners and no update here. I call BS on the update. Verizon tech just said no updates have rolled out anywhere yet. Who knows...

    Running 2.1 v3 leak. Just did a *#*#checkin#*#* and suddenly copy protected apps that I could not get in the market before are available so this is promising. I did notice there are some features that appear to still be missing/hidden in the 3rd leak so I am anxious for the final official release. Anyone have it yet? Anyone seen it posted on the interwebs anywhere?

    Where is the Google maps update? I didn't get it. Also, how do I back up my apps to the memory card before I get the update (whenever that is)

    Welcome!

    Nobody's seen it yet. But just keep watching here and eventually news (good or bad) will arrive.

    So far today *#*#checkin#*#* has afforded no result from what I've read. Just app updates.

    Okay, NOW I will start holding my breath. When I woke up this afternoon, I looked at my phone and saw...














    ...an update from HTC confirming all the hype. So, in my books, it's for real. I will get off my soapbox now.
