    Works pretty well and is pretty fast. I don't like the idea that you can't navigate by your history of other searches, but the reviews is kinda cool and the fact that you can tailor your serch based on your mod of travel.

    I wanna try this out, but some negative comments have me scared.

    "...Can't delete cache...app is huge...street view hard to find etc."

    How do I go back to old version of maps if I uninstall this version? Will it just revert on its own? Do both versions stay on your phone?

    Anyone know?

    Do you think you need Places Directory with the new Google Maps? I currently have both.

    I'll try this question again.

    Has anyone been able to install the new version, then uninstall and go back to original maps without suffering any problems? Thanks in advance!

    Is anyone else seeing the following bug? I'm not sure if it's the new maps app, or the 1.5 update causing it, but when I enter coordinates in the search field, instead of marking the location I specify, it always pick the nearest building, or street address. So far, I haven't found a way around this extremely annoying bug.
