    Seems to be actually less accurate now. Anyone comment on that?

    On the bright side, it how has bicycle directions and the ability to avoid highways and tolls. Guess I should have waited to install it though...

    Yeah... my GPS is much less accurate now than it was before the update, and the multitouch is wacky and doesn't work as it should. It zooms the wrong way when I pinch. Ugh!

    One another nice thing about the update, if/when it's usable, is the new Navigation item in the Launcher. It gives you a history of recent locations, and also lets you choose how you want to enter a destination.

    I just updated Google Maps and I'm not seeing these issues. Pinch to Zoom works just like it always has, accuracy (limited since I'm not mobile right now) shows me to be right where I'm at......

    The new Navigation though is nice.....allowing me to tap Speak Destination, Type Destination, Contacts or Starred Items at launch.

    I haven't had any problems. Updated 20 minutes ago and found my nearly instantly, and the gps was last turned on a few miles away.

    Ok so I noticed for a moment that it lost it's accuracy for a moment after opening the update. However I just held the phone in my hand and spun around for a few times and it fixed it practically instantly. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Navigation App it gives you for search. Finally getting around to making this thing perfect! dancedroid

    I'm wanting to upgrade also but would like a means to backup my current config.(Have this issue with other updates also) What app are you using if you don't mind me asking?

    It's probably right under my nose, but how do you do it?

    Updated Google Maps


    Main points

    -Bike routes

    -Turn by turn navigation icon in app drawer

    -Location sharing via text, email, etc.


    To Share Location


    Inside of message press MENU > ATTACH > LOCATION


    (Once thats done you might have to press MENU > Location so it can pin point your exact spot. If not you will ahve to manually do it)



    After installing update reboot phone to get turn by turn nav icon in app drawer
