    I updated my Google Maps to version 5.1.0 on my desire z and all the features (tilting, rotating, compass, etc) work well on it, except the 3D buildings view.
    I've tried to zoom in and go to many different cities that have the 3D maps, but it still doesn't work.
    Does it happen to any other desire z owners or am I missing something here? :thinking:

    It works for me. I am able to see the 3D buildings in downtown Vancouver. Note that you have to really zoom in and buildings are generally only shown for the city centre area.

    It works! apparently the 3d map doesn't cover my area. I tried downtown vancouver and I could see the 3d buildings.
    Thanks :)

    The current version is 5.3.1, and should be updatable via the Market.
