    Can get the tilt with two fingers to work, but I can't get the rotate with two fingers to work.

    Nexus One was not to get that 'feature'...because of the digitizer. Newer phones with better digitizers are, as the original Motorola Milestone (Droid), which uses a different yet better digitizer than the N1

    Was the screen ever fixed on newer N1's?

    That's what I meant, was the hardware ever fixed? I read somewhere that different screens were used later on.

    yes, SLCD instead of AMOLEDs, but that's just the display, the digitizer was still the same

    We've known it was pants for a while really. Good job rotating when in 3D mode isn't a huge deal for me, since I don't live near anything that's 3D enabled.

    I compared my nexus to my girlfriends samsung vibrant and its really not a big difference. I might have to do the 2 finger thing twice before the screen responds it not a huge deal imho. And yes maps 5.o is awesome

    App brain showed the update before the market did for me.

    I updated, but I don't get any of this 3D talk. It looks like a funny looking version of the old Maps.

    Go to New York, zoom in and turn off satellite view. You'll soon see if it's working.

    Aw shucks, silly me thinking they would make Los Angeles 3D :(. Maybe it's only a matter of time...

    EDIT: Downtown LA is in 3D.. just not East LA. (Makes sense, there aren't even any tall buildings in East LA.)

    Double EDIT: The two-finger tilt works fine. I can tilt up and down as I please. BUT, the rotation either doesn't work or I can't figure out how to do it..

    I like how the map now rotates with me. It was always confusing trying to figure out which direction I'm actually facing in reference to the map.

    I thought it did that anyway if you switched on compass mode..?

    Edit: or was that just in Street view?

    I Wish Google added maps of shopping centers like Microsoft did with their Bing maps.
