    I have a jailbroken iPod touch. I have the iPhone applications on there. For Google Maps, is there a way to access the hybrid view? All I have is Maps, Satellite, and List (no hybrid).

    Is there anyway to bring the hybrid view up under the maps application?

    Also, what does the little car icon do...sometimes it's highlighted and sometimes not...pressing (when available) doesn't give me any info on what it does.

    Please let me know, thanks.

    The application does not have a hybrid view.
    The little car icon enables/disables traffic.

    You can get a slightly hybrid view if you create a trip and the touch satellite. You just see the purple lines on the satellite picture, no street names. The car icon is only useful in bigger cities i live near Blacksburg, VA (go hokies!) and it doesn't show traffic info...but send you map to New York City, and you can get a traffic report.
