    I seem to have found a small bug in 3.0 Google Maps. I searched a bit and haven't seen it mentioned anywhere, and was wondering if anyone else has seen it.

    I can't quite figure out a definitive set of steps to reproduce it, but when in "Directions mode" and using the left and right arrows to navigate a route, eventually the purple "turn circle" disappears and/or appears in the wrong place. To get the bug to appear, the map may need to be zoomed, moved, and throw in pushing the "center on me" button. The only way to get the circle back is to go back and forth a few times on the route, or close the app and re-open.

    I noticed it when driving a route. I would go forward when I hit each turn, and then zoom out a bit on the longer stretches to see my progress. However, I can make it happen by entering a route, going through it, and throwing in a few zooms/map zooms here and there.

    If anyone else see this, please comment.

    I'd submit it as a bug to Apple.

    The biggest bug that I can tell is the omission of Google Latitudes. Where is it? It was "coming shortly" many months ago.

    ^^^when 3.0 is officially released...google latitude for the iphone will be released as well. Latitude uses features that safari 3.0 has, and wouldnt work before the release. It will likely go live at the time of release.

    Didn't 2.2 have streetview? It seems to be missing from 3.0.

    EDIT: nevermind, I was being absent minded...
