Default Google Maps with Real Time Traffic!

Please Login to Remove!

How does Google make Google Maps better?...by adding real time traffic .

Just released today, you just have to download the latest version 1.3.0 and you're set.

1.3.0 installed. Application manager thinks it's 1.3.0, but the app seems no different and actually reports as the previous version (1.2.3) in it's About screen. Removed it from the Applications menu. Device rebooted. Still, the old version is on the home screen - and loads! Battery out reset... STILL on the home screen and STILL RUNS!

Ditto on my 7130c, got to admit it seems faster and the ability to save certain locations as favorites got me hooked.

Do any of you, seems to experience a faster battery drain when in Gmaps.?

My 7100i is depleting the battery in about 7 hours from new charge. this unit is 3 months old. Original battery.

I installed on my 7130c, got an error.
Deleted under Applications. There is no mention of Google in Advanced Options -> Applications.
Google Maps version 1.2.3 is still available somehow, still runs fine.

Any way to get rid of it?

Default Are you kidding?

Are you kidding me? Of course running a graphics/processor intense application is going to run down your battery more than when your phone is just sitting idle. Thats fairly obvious my friend. Does your car run out of gas quicker when you're flooring it down the highway, or idling in a parking lot?
