    Checking mine now.. it is stuck churning "Getting driving directions".. now it just said "data connection lost"

    Yep, I just tried maps and I'm getting a "data connection lost" right away, not even getting a map.

    Something on google's side must be down.

    Doing a search it appears a lot of people are having this problem, just not on the Dinc. No solution though and its been happening a lot lately from what I can gather.

    I let mine sit here trying to connect for about 15 minutes and it finally got the directions for me.

    Yeah it pretty much screwed me today. Luckily someone had sent me an email with directions to where I needed to go so I read it off the screen as I went. It felt like it was 2005 and I had printed directions off of mapquest.
