    I downloaded the update last night. Thought I would share my thoghts on this version of gmap.

    When I first updated the software, I did it through the phone. First thing I noticed was no voice. I deleted the app and downloaded and installed through iTunes. Voice was back!

    First off landscape works great! The new ui looks good as well. iPod integretion is working, tho I can't find anyway to control the music while in the gps program.

    Now for the bugs I have found so far.

    Contacts works when it was an address I put in myself. So far only one out of dozens of google map contacts works. I am thinking that it might not like how google maps puts the unit number into address. But that's just a guess.

    I can't change the default state from Ontario. I can't change default city either. Postal codes only show Ontario as well. So my best guess is they forgot to inclde the rest of Canada.

    I don't see traffic nor is there tts in this version. I have to double check if they say it was included in this version.

    Overall I am happier then I was with version 1, however it really looks like they threw this update out without even a basic check to make sure it worked. I'll be sending a email to them tonight with all the glitches I see in this version and hope a update is coming to clean this up.

    I also found that the map isn't automatically switching between day and night modes now.

    I sent in a support ticket with a full explanation of everything I have seen / tried. Hope it helps...

    I just received a reply to my ticket. Hopefully we will see something shortly to fix the issues everyone has been having.
