    I was using my GPS all weekend, and in the lower left corner next to the time to destination there is a colored dot. Sometimes it is green, sometimes it is red, and sometimes orange or grey. What the heck does that dot mean???

    I don't have the Droid in front of me but if I recall correctly it's the GPS signal strength.

    I found the answer, it is the color of the current traffic conditions on that part of your route.

    If you touch it, it will switch you to traffic view.

    Great! Thanks for the correction (and now that I'm looking at my Droid, I see that's exactly what it is :D)

    Grey means no traffic data available
