    I downloaded this to check it out for a friend that doesn't have any data to use with g maps. I rebooted N4 and still can't get a map to show. Just my locator on the screnen and white background. Do I need to disable g maps? Uninstall/reinstall?

    MAY THE 4 BE WITH YOU!
    Did you go into the App and download the map that you want? I just went ahead and downloaded all of USA but you can do it state by state.

    It didn't give me this option before but per this post I opened Here again and maps were available. Thanks!

    So glad that HERE Maps is available on Android. It was one of the big losses coming from Nokia and WP. Google Maps is just dreadful on my Note 4. So laggy.

    So far, so good with HERE though.

    Going to give this application a shot, I like how I can tap and hold on a location and it stays in the recent location listing so that I can pick it later. Makes picking starting and ending points for navigation a breeze.

    I know a lot of people are waiting anxiously for it and I'm curious as to what feature(s) it brings to the table that you are really waiting. for. I've had it on my Nexus 7 for some time now and it really had made little if any difference to me.

    Well...every 24 hours we will all run a check. One day someone will start a thread about they got the L update. Then it's on...

    That's referring to the international version. They get it first, and the carrier versions have to wait for the carriers. Technically you weren't promised anything.

    I have it on my nexus 4 and it made a big difference for me ; I hate it lol. Battery stats suck more than ever, it takes more effort to change settings that used to be right there in quick settings etc.

    Thankfully the leak videos that have been floating around look different than stock Google stuff. Agree with you though, its almost as if people are awaiting the next messiah lol. I'm sure once the update hits there will be lots of posts about how disappointing it was.

    It's not crowd-sourced, it's Nokia. They supply mapping data to a lot of companies. HERE maps is a great offline mapping system. It started on Symbian, then it was Windows Phone exclusive, then added iOS and have finally come out with something for Android which is very nice.

    There are countries missing in the system but the app is very nice and it syncs with their website for favourites. The transport and driving part are great.

    March is a good estimate, but then again, it'll probably take forever for all the carriers to release it. The impatience is real.

    I am in no rush for the update. Let them take their time and get it right.

    The amount of threads that will pop up after the release about how this and that doesn't work... I can live without it.

    Before we know it M will be available. I know they have to perfect it...but we were promised it by now.

    Once we get it, almost nothing will be different anyway because of Touchwiz. I'm excited for it but I also am in no rush. Basically we'll get loads of bugs with a few new features and nothing groundbreaking. I'm fine with my Note the way it is running the Google Now Launcher.

    I wouldn't want them to rush it. I would rather all bugs be sorted out then get it.

    So far, it has gone through two updates, from 5.0 to 5.0.1 to 5.0.2, it seems. By the time it's finally released, in general, it'll be 5.0.9 or 5.1. ;-)

    I don't know about how L works on Nexus phones, but 5.0.1 works just fine on my Nexus 7. It's faster and I have great battery life. If whatever version finally gets to my Note 4,and it works as good, I'll be ecstatic. So, hopefully, they'll get it right.

    This is the only functionality that L can bring to my Note 4 that I actually want.

    What are they doing to the SD cards?
