    3.4 already had night mode navigation...odd that they call it out in 4.0 as if it's new.

    Yea it was there, but don't think they announced it. I think the big thing here is the new Google Buzz.

    Yeah, Buzz is really interesting. I'm looking forward to how this will end up working with Twitter, Facebook etc. Buzz on GMaps is cool.

    buzz could be used to report speed traps ;) probably easier than using trapster.

    YES

    I wonder if Buzz can be merged with Trapster somehow.
    Trapster has a MUCH larger database as of now.

    I own two V1's, they're both sitting in the closet now. On the west coast they have these phantom guns mounted to the light poles on the interstate. They shoot X, K, and Ka at random and at varying strengths. My V1 goes off every three miles, annoys the crap out of me! :mad:

    Now they sit in a box in my office.

    I really don't get the point of google buzz but im sure i have much to learn.
    There is already hundreds of mobile posts in my area thru google maps.. crazy

    The starred items sync works great.

    V1's are nice but from my experience it isn't any better then the competition, and its filtering is not that great, way to many false alarms. What I really like is the Veil coating, I have it my car and it works awesome combined with a 9500ix. Anyone who doesn't know what Veil is....it is a liquid coating that you apply to your headlights and license plate, since that is what radars and lasers bounce off of to get a speed readout. With Veil applied the distance of which they can get a accurate reading is GREATLY shortened so it gives you much more time to react to your radar detector's alarm.

    Oh and damn Google, didn't you just release 3.4?

    Did map scrolling lose 'momentum'? When I swipe on a map to slide it over, it used to 'coast' a bit after I let go of it. Now it stops immediately. Just doesn't feel right to me.

    Anybody else notice this? Or is something wrong with my install?

    Now we need night mode in the maps because the traffic does not overlay while driving and using the Nav.
