As per title, does it do anything new & exciting?
I've installed it and it says:
What's new in Maps?
-Share places by email, text message, Facebook, and more
-New Navigation icon in application launcher
I would assume these are the new features, but im no genius.
Pity the navigation doesn't work in Australia yet...still got brut maps for now though
how do you upgrade your goggle maps? I have not been able to!!
Its not on m.google.com/maps
neither is it in the market place or appbrain.
It comes up as an "upgrade available" message on the notification bar on the top. I have installed it but have not been able to test out the share loction features!! yet
how come i have not got it?
I got it but see absolutely no difference, where is my new Navigation icon
can you not get it in the market?
Ive got the navigation icon. Its in the programes menu. Just tap on it and it takes you straight to the navigation part of google maps.
Yeah looked there, and all other places a icon would be hiding but it's just not here, maybe I'll uninstall and re-install
I had to re boot the phone and then it was there....give that a try.
Somehow managed to miss that there is the navigation icon in the list of programs, so it has appeared after all
I think this is new:
Plot a route, go to the list of directions and hit the Menu - lots of new options inluding ability to Report a Problem - a bit like Tomtom's. Brilliant!
It's a shame they haven't included the nexus one front end for it, at least it's nice to have some kind of front end I guess.
lol 3 days after installing and countless reboots I now have the all singing all dancing navigation icon, bit of a disappointment really as all it does it the same as the nav launcher I installed when I installed the google maps brut version before the official version was released.
Try NavLauncher app. It allows you to quickly get to Favourites, Contacts, recent destinations.
SO the UPDATE version is automatically show up? I tried to find in Market and didn't found anything
streetview is new in this update
I noticed it in the market place under my downloads. It said "update avaliable". Press menu button in market place and go to downloads. Should be there.
It was avaliable in the original version.
