Actually noticed the new maps update today after making a road trip. Before Maps (the update that went earlier this week) was buggy as hell and made me sad because I otherwise enjoyed the update.
Got the latest update today and suddenly all the bugs I noticed previously are gone.
Got my update. Love the pinch-to-zoom. And I hate to say it, I like the Buzz integration. I thought Buzz was going to be a lousy invention that had no real place, but I can see it being useful. I mean I can check out what's going on all over the city in my map. I like the idea. Hopefully it takes off and people use it.
I upgraded Maps yesterday morning, then used it for a trip from Richmond, VA to Raleigh, NC, plus a couple of side trips. Worked perfectly, in fact it had the streets of a new subdivision, north of Raleigh, that had its first completed house last month. Very current in my estimation.
On the day it launched someone posted a story here about a dog they came across. The pound found no embedded chip, the lost and found in the paper didn't work and then Buzz is launched a week or so later. He Buzzes about the dog and 20 minutes later someone 2 blocks away contacts him. How cool is that?
If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

The new upgrade doesn't work for me. Not only does it hang and force close but it also doesn't do voice navigation.
I tried un-installing and re-installing a couple of times but it never worked. Went back to what there was before the upgrade and it works fine.
