    I'm trying to figure out if this small problem I'm having is related to the ROM I'm running (2.1 Custom ROM) or a general "bug" in maps. It worked just fine months ago...


    In the "Maps" application one of the layers is a "Wikipedia" layer. It puts "W"s all over your maps that you can click. A small popup would appear and upon clicking that it would pull the information off of Wikipedia and tell you a little about the place. Now it still appears on the MAP, and I can still click it... but it doesn't provide the wiki information. The only options it gives after clicking is "Share this place" and "Report a problem". Along with the standard "Directions" button on the top.

    Feedback ?

    Mine works fine, showing a brief "label" type info and clicking that brings up options, one being "description" which gives detailed info of the location.

    CyanogenMOD 5.7.0.1, Maps version is 4.2.0
