    It adds a icon for places in your drawer. Click that and gives u categories to search similar to the where app. Which I still prefer.

    Do you like the white theme they have now instead of the black one they used to use?

    Since "Where" is not available in Canada, I see this update as a huge plus. I mean they took a simple maps app, and they added navigation to it and now business directory

    I remember the maps app on my 3GS, that was a joke lol

    I also had to reboot on my EVO to get the Places icon to show up. The Navigation program now lets you see a moving map without entering a destination.

    I moved all the new icons into a folder named "Maps" to make accessing them easier.

    It seems to have fixed the "pinch to zoom" bug on the Incredible.

    Places is cool, but I'm still a Yelp fan.

    Navigation works as good as ever.

    Can I customize a folder icon to represent my Maps apps?

    I stopped using Google Nag because it pretty routinely dropped me off a couple of miles from my actual destination. I wonder if this update fixed that issue.

    I haven't had that problem in the UK, So far it has been very accurate. Obviously not had a chance to test this version out yet.

    looks like this update completely renders google places directory app worthless. good thing, since that app was updated today too and the update totally borked it.

    Try doing a search for it on your phone. I'm using an EVO and I hit the search button and then type in "places" (without the quotes of course). Even before the icon showed up it was there with search and could open it.

    If search doesn't find it, make sure your Maps app actually got updated.

    Prior to the update you could only use navigation (3D map) when you were driving to a set destination. If you just wanted to look at the map while driving you could on do this via the Maps app (2D map). Now, you can open the navigation app and view the map (3D) while driving without having to enter in a destination. I tried it on the way home after the update and it worked perfectly! Very nice. I, too, had to reboot after the update to get places to show up.

    They're taking their sweet time with getting Nav to Sweden, but other than that it's pretty cool. Searching for ATMs doesn't work here, though.

    The BRUT Navigation thing still works fine, only problem being that the English text-to-voice is having some issues with pronouncing Swedish names. xD

    The update installed. I rebooted. Still don't see the 'places' button. Just to be clear, it should appear under Google Maps when I press the menu button? I can search 'places' from the home screen and I see the app but it is not within Google Maps. Sprint HTC Evo 4G
