It's been five years since Google launched Google Maps for mobile and my, how it's changed. The company recently demoed Google Maps 5 for Android on a Honeycomb tablet and we were promised it would roll out to current Android users very soon.

Once you accept that the Fermi cards run hot, it's not longer a "problem". Especially when you consider the heat does not actually cause performance issues.

Silicon devices anneal with heat which causes loss of functionality. I had an hp laptop that suffered this way all dur to a poor design - intermittent wifi then no wifi then no boot! Heat can also damage bond wires and reduce the overall reliability of the chips in many ways.
3D is actually only available in select cities, I couldn't get the circular motion to rotate the map to work, and there's still a big grey bar at the top of the map view that takes up valuable space on a smaller 3.7" screen. I still prefer the older versions of Google Maps. If I want 3D, I can always launch Google Earth.
Wouldn't this be the exact opposite of when one would require a map and guidance the most?
I would find it much more productive if it would constantly update your surroundings by a wide area and if by any chance your service suddenly drops you can still find your way around

I just bought a new My Touch 4G to replace my G1. Downloaded the new maps app to the phone. I was very impressed with the new turn-by-turn directions. I remember how inadequate they were with the older Google Maps that came with the G1 (basically worthless). The new Maps may make me rethink my idea about needing a stand-alone GPS, especially if it has offline capabilities (the one major deterrent to Google Maps on my phone so far).
