    Has anybody else noticed a layer that says "Find Droid X!" on Google Maps? If so, are these the areas where the "loose" Droid X's can be found?

    I put "Droid X" into Google Maps and it came back with "did you mean 3965 Jackson Rd, Modesto, CA 95358". I dunno, maybe there is one there.

    The OP must be a joke. I've been following droidlanding for a while now (several days) and I don't have that layer. Not a funny joke.

    I assure you, this is no joke. I have no idea how it got on my maps, but it did. This did not show up until after I followed droidlanding on twitter.

    I know how this is gonna sound, but just hear me out. My lock/standby button began to give me trouble so I had unroot it and to take it back to verizon so they could ship me a replacement phone. I am expecting my phone to arrive sometime tomorrow but if there is a way to take screenshots w/o root then I am up for suggestions. If not, then you guys will either have to take my word for it or dismiss it. Either way doesn't really matter to me, I was just wondering if anyone else besides me could see that layer on maps.

    I would've posted another picture with a view from the map view and how it looked once I clicked it but my only other camera was my sister's phone and she would not appreciate me waking her up for that.

    The only thing I can say is the icon next to it is the same as "My Saved Places" but other than that...idk. Pretty cool. I'm following DroidLanding twitter as well and don't have this layer.
