    If you have been waiting for the new Google Maps that was demoed on the new Nexus S to be released soon, wait no longer, it is now officially in the Market. The new version of Maps comes with 3D maps, offline routing, improved zooming, and a better functioning compass mode.

    It is quite nice seeing all the work Google is putting in to get us better software and it’s even better that everyone gets this updates (well almost everyone).

    Anyone updated already? How do you life it?

    Excerpt from release notes:

    been playing with it, loads CRAPLOADS faster! I love it just for the sheer quickness of how fast it loads! The two-finger scrolldown for a more 3d isometric view is cool, but might take some getting used to using.

    +1 for Google!

    Original Droid owner, am I missing something on how to rotate the 3D map? Or am I just misunderstanding its functions...the "twist" effect isn't work? User or phone?

    Verified to be working perfectly on most units/rom's, it is a lack of knowledge issue, not with maps 5...

    I've got it installed on my D1 running UD 2.5, and on my wife's D2. I can twist to rotate on hers perfectly, but on mine it doesn't work. Strange...

    Any other decent map apps? Unless I zoom in close, the roads are blurry. Was not like this in the previous version.
