    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. :)

    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

    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.

    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.
