    No maps forcecloses here so far. I'm on BB ESE53 0.6 with Helix Launcher. For those who haven't noticed, there is a new live wallpaper after you update to 4.1. It is a "maps" live wallpaper that shows your current location and follows you...

    **EDIT** I should thank radikal from the LWP thread in the Droid section...Didn't notice the wallpaper before I saw him post it...

    I did not know that. Thanks!

    I'm running DroidMod with Helix and Maps is working fine. And there is a Latitude widget.

    Working fine on DM 1.0, the included live wallpaper is pretty cool.

    No reason to be jealous, just ROOT your phone like the 85% others on here.

    It is rooted, but with a 1.5 ROM ;). I'd rather wait for Paul to make a custom ROM from an official 2.1 build than use the leaked one. So I'll have to be jealous a little longer :D

    after launching maps, if i try to use it immediately, it force closes. if i wait a minute and let it do whatever it's doing, it seems to work fine.

    stock droid.

    Edit - sorry I didn't see it was already commented on.

    Strange thing just happened...
    I got an update notification from the Market, and Google Maps was one of them. The version is 4.1.0. But I already had 4.1 installed. :thinking:

    @messenger13, same. Maybe it's an update but for things we wouldn't normally notice. Bugs or such. Who knows, though. I haven't noticed any difference.

    it's pretty awesome... the buzz integration is pretty good... on its own, buzz sucks somewhat, but when integrated in maps, it's pretty cool (amazing to already see a bunch of buzzes locally - don't know if they're all Nexus, but many seem mobile based...) ... overall, loving how quickly google is sending out updates... it's the way it should be...

    Has anyone else had any issues since the new updates with navigation? When I search for something in google maps and the new profile page comes up, I hit the button for navigation. I get taken back to the map view, but navigation doesn't start.
