    Hi !
    I just tried an iPhone and I saw that it has a handy compass mode in Google Maps which rotates the map to the direction you are looking to. If you don't know what I mean here is a video showing it: YouTube - iPhone 3G S; Google Maps + Compass

    I wanna get the Desire but I can't find information about the compass mode in Google Maps, just of Google Streets.

    Does it have this option ?

    Thanks,
    casbar

    Just a quick question, i'm very new to google maps and i do quite alot of walking and sometimes to places i'm not that familiar with. Is there a way where i can google maps can find the most appropriate route for a walker with the street map showing?

    or you can try and get from market the "spare parts" app
    which has an option for showing the compass in maps

    p.s.
    have not tried myself so not 100% sure if this works for you...

    There is an option when you click to get directions where you can click on walking instead of car. It will then give you walking instructions
