    Curious if anyone else notices increased battery consumption on this latest update. It's not killing the battery but it's showing up as #2 or 3 when I haven't touched anything that would use it. Definitely related to the latest update.

    Try force closing it and see if it starts back up.
    I have found with Maps, and some other apps, I need to reboot my device for the apps to work right after an update. I write that because I rarely reboot my Android devices except when something acts up or I notice a sudden drop in battery life vs the average.

    Thanks, I have done that. Tried it again earlier today so we'll see what happens tonight.

    Any change? My Defy+ was saying maps used 35% of battery even though maps wasn't loaded :-/ GPS was active though - indoors, weak but usable signal.
