    With the new Maps 4.4 update, I am now able to use the Maps feature in Navigation without a destination (YEAH!). For those that want to know how, just select the Navigation app & then there will be a new icon in the upper right corner that looks like an "M" in the shape of a folded map. When selected, it will bring up the map, start GPS & there you go! There will be a banner at the top which allows you to "Set Destination" (which is still annoying as it takes up valuable screen space).

    BUT, my question: Is there a way to automatically launch this new feature so that it starts when I put in Car Dock? When I get in the car, I want to drop my Droid in the dock, start driving and not have to push buttons to have the map track me.

    [NOTE: I also use Car Dock v2 if there is a way to do it with that app.]
