    I can get the 3D view working on the new 5.0, but I can't rotate the map the way they do in this video. And I'm assuming we don't have a compass on this phone, so the auto rotate won't work either. Does it work for y'all?

    It does.......everything in the video should work...

    Tap the my location button twice to trigger the compass mode.

    Some CM6.1 users are reporting that the rotate does not work...me included

    I just got the update last night, been playing with it today. Everything seems to work fine for me, even the auto-rotate. I even found my house and can see my car in the driveway... :icon_eek:

    "Google Maps App, we need to talk...it's about your weight..."
    "My weight...? What the hell is that supposed to mean??"
    "It's just...it's just that you take up more and more space after every--"
    "NO! I don't want to talk about this right now! I get better after each update, I'm just sorry you can't see that!"
    "You know I still think you're beautiful, I just don't want to see you let yourself go..."
    "Ugh...! See if I ever guide you anywhere again you jerk!"

    @OP, sorry for the hijack. :)

    I don't know if the xv6800 has a digital compass. A quick Google search might tell you.

    if youre looking for the 3d buildings, its only in select cities, like la and ny. try going to one of those places and zoom in all the way in the regular straight down view before going 3d. thats what i had to do .
