I was able to install the new version OTA on my 7130e by going to the Google site.
I installed v2.3.1 prior to upgrading to v126.96.36.199 using v188.8.131.52 and it worked fine and still works fine with the upgrade...if you continue to have problems doing an OTA, try a desktop install...and next time, it will usually ask you to update if it requires an update (which is a lot easier) so you don't have to waste time or energy fussing over an uninstall and such...
The new version allows you to find directios and searches much easier, doesn't take up much memory or slow down the phone, has a NEW
street view option (awesome), walking and transit directions, as well as a carry over GPS option.
And to my knowledge it does not work with wifi...although I could be wrong...
Only problem encountered so far is the "My Location" feature sometimes tells me I'm in Ireland...when I'm really in southern california...
