    Maybe I'm missing this somewhere or it just doesn't exist. The default view of GoogleMaps is the perspective view. Is there a way to change it to a top down view? My brain seems to process that view a little better.

    Are you talking about google maps or navigation?

    Sorry. The map view during navigation.

    Usually I turn on the traffic layer, which switches it to more of an overhead view, but zoomed out pretty far. I believe you can then zoom in (I think...don't have my phone in front of me), which should give you what you want.

    I'm not sure there's a "real" way to do this since I've never looked: Just telling you what I usually do and think will work for you.

    I dont ever recall hearing of a way to change the view to simulate what a GPS unit does in Google maps. I just use my Sprint Navigator on my EVO.
    Hey, its included in my plan, and i use and abuse it when i get lost or go somewhere new.

    As far as I know google nav does not have 2D view while driving. Lets how they add that option when they come out of beta.
