    **Also clicking anywhere on the map will bring up a "What's nearby" option which lets you know POI's that are near the clicked point on the map (or address).

    I was following the Google conference today since TechCrunch was doing it live.

    Hence how I knew about Google Goggles as soon as it was announced

    Google is doing SO well lately -- this is amazing.

    Can someone tell me how to save the maps? I Googled and read elsewhere that the map can be saved as a Contact, but I see no such feature on the Droid. Thanks.

    I saw on another thread that Google Maps wasn't working right with the update. This might take care of that as well.

    I installed the update and must say, maps kicks butt now! Much faster and way more options than before the firmware update! Now hopefully it got rid of my echo, but I haven't made a call with it yet.

    If you add an address to your contact and then go into your contact it will give you a option to show on map or navigate to.
