i just read that it has night mode, but i don't see an option for it. Has anybody gotten it to work?
haven't heard anything, but that'd be great.
the new 2.1 clock dim is alot dimmer than 2.0.1, but they really need to turn off the four buttons.
That update was released for Android 2.1 on the Nexus One (not the Droid yet). It has already been ported for the Droid and includes pinch to zoom to go along with the night mode. If you have rooted your phone, you can install it now. It also came with the newest Sholes ROM that was just released today.
Anything that uses the Maps API will crash though, at least that is what I have experienced with Weather Bug. Others are saying this too so thats why I tested it and proved they were right. It does work good until something needs to access it. Im using the Bugless Beast rom which included this version of Google maps. So maybe the stand alone apk wouldnt cause this? I'd like to know.
I have it installed with bb, I just cant find where you can go to night mode
What version of BB are you running? I put the new on last night (2/3) and 'heard' others say that but it does NOT crash for me... I did a search from xScope, pulled up the map, selected 'get directions' and it opens the Map program perfectly. I believe that was one of the things addressed in last nights build...
And no, I can't find the 'night' mode either.. ?maybe it automatically adjusts based on the time??
I installed the MT Maps last night including in the Sholes ROM. Didn't crash on me either...
Night mode automatic and ONLY in NAV
Just found several press releases regarding the update. Apparently it switches to "night mode" automatically. Also several of the releases make it sound like this mode is only in the Nav and not on the maps... Guess we'll have to wait a few hours to find out.

Lastly, be sure to check out the newly added "night mode" in Navigation, which will automatically turn on for easier Navigation viewing at night,”
I was hoping you would be able to switch between day and night mode on the fly. Oh well.
wow that'll be slick if it adjusts based on the time. the only thing that would bother me is it turning to night mode too early or too late.
Im running the 0.7.4 version and the only app I have tried it with is Weather Bug when you try to view the radar the weather bug app crashes. I havent tried it with anything else.
Just checked the Nav and "night mode" is indeed working:icon_ banana:. It's nothing major, they just darkened the map and dimmed the title/instruction window but it would be easier on the eyes at night. Still odd there's no way to toggle it on/off. But at least it a bit of progress.
Pete just updated his AllDroid post with a patch to fix the Map problem.
