    Well, I rooted my Eris to 2.1, mainly for the Navigator option, and all seems to be alright EXCEPT Google maps & Navigation. I get a exception message and only option is a Forced Close.

    Have tried the Manage Apps-Filter--Do not get option to delete Updates--only choice is to clear data.

    If I do that, where will I re download the google maps app?

    FRUSTRATED!!:eek:

    I have rooted 2.1 and the only way I can get my nav. to work is to click view map, search for a place, then click it and press navigate. The navigate button on the main menu FC the app on my phone. Hope this helps

    I found the 2.1 v3, and it seemed to fix all the bugs. Still maybe a tad slow, but I'm content.

    Thanks, all.
