    My GPS takes significantly longer to get a lock after the update to Google Maps 3.2.1. Anyone else notice this?

    I had a lot of problems today with the GPS. It would not get a lock at all. I noticed that if you go into the settings > manage apps > maps, it has a button to uninstall updates. I have 3.2.1 as well

    yes just did, reverted back to 3.2.0. it took about 8 seconds to find my location. I tested out right before I uninstalled the updates and it timed out. Im going to reinstall the update and see what happens. looks like its an app problem

    i reinstalled the update and it is pulling up just fine. Now I'm not sure what is going on but I will give it some more testing.

    Strange. I'll try the same thing as soon as I can get to a place with a clear view of the sky.

    I don't have a "Maps" Option when I go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications... weird.
