**Also clicking anywhere on the map will bring up a "What's nearby" option which lets you know POI's that are near the clicked point on the map (or address).

I was following the Google conference today since TechCrunch was doing it live.

Hence how I knew about Google Goggles as soon as it was announced ;)

Google is doing SO well lately -- this is amazing.

Can someone tell me how to save the maps? I Googled and read elsewhere that the map can be saved as a Contact, but I see no such feature on the Droid. Thanks.

I saw on another thread that Google Maps wasn't working right with the update. This might take care of that as well.

I installed the update and must say, maps kicks butt now! Much faster and way more options than before the firmware update! Now hopefully it got rid of my echo, but I haven't made a call with it yet.:icon_ banana:

If you add an address to your contact and then go into your contact it will give you a option to show on map or navigate to.:icon_ banana:
