in socal, i kept getting "connection lost, retrying" on my way to work this morning. of course i just updated to frf84b last night so i don't know if it is that or just the netowork. maps seems to load ok now though.
haha, see good things happen when you post sometimes. glad to hear i was not the only one. you guys should state your area too. i know a couple of weeks ago, right after i upgraded to 2.2 frf57, i had the same problem, but verizon acknowledged network outtages in the LA area that day.
I originally posted this in the BB0.4 thread but after reading this one I am thinking this maybe a problem on Google's end and not the ROM not really sure.
Ok so ran a test on Google Maps/Navigation.
To: Left around 8pm to go to a friends house took the way I knew maps would tell me to go. As I pull out of the gas station I clicked on navigate from the car dock/home menu choose my friends address from the contacts option. The map new where i was kept track of me and all while the icon circled and said getting directions. This continued 99% of the drive with data connection lost message from the robot voice lady. Finally I turn on my friends street and it connect and says you destination is approaching on the left.
From: On the way home at the end of his street I once again clicked on navigate from the car dock/home menu choose my address from the contacts option. It loaded right up a never missed a beat. So I decide lets throw it for a loop and take the back way into my neighborhood. It says rerouting loads new course and off I go.
Not sure why it wouldn't work going to my friends and worked like a champ coming back. Any ideas, anyone have similar issues. I use this function quite a bit and would like to no I can depend on it when I need it.
mine seemed better going home last night and on the way to work this morning. took a little longer to load maps than usual, but no connection lost messages. i always have pandora in the background too, and that never hiccuped.
