    I might have been hallucinating before, but I swear that the Google Maps app would track my location with the direction of travel always at the top of the screen - the 'track up' feature for most standalone GPS units.

    Now when I track my location, it has me going left to right or right to left. Is there some setting that I changed? I recall several updates the past few days. Makes me wonder if that has anything to do with it. Thoughts?

    Did you try clicking the compass arrow (the red & gray thing)in the upper left? Doing so seems to toggle between the auto-rotate and north-oriented modes.

    Works fine for Google Navigate, but the Maps app doesn't do it.
