    Just downloaded the upgrade to maps 4.1 The update includes a latitude widget, ability to set maps as a live wallpaper, new search results look, and the ability to use multiple accounts with maps such as latitude, buzz, etc...

    Pretty cool as a live wallpaper I must say.

    Seems to have the compass turned on now even if you aren't moving. Seems really accurate as well.

    I downloaded the update a few minutes ago but forgot to check. I put on the live wallpaper just to check it out...I'm not so sure I need or like it. Will the live wallpaper change as you move around? If so, it needs the pointer and ability to pinch zoom. Overall, pretty cool.

    Edit: Ok, I did start tapping the live wallpaper and it did start to zoom, but wouldn't allow me to zoom back out again.

    Can someone please post the com.google.android.apps.maps.apk file from inside /data/app/ for me?

    My ROM will not let me update/install it from the market
