3d is only in some cities. L.a. for example. Though I can't figure out how to rotate or change the angle.

@nolook: Check out Toronto for some 3D action, it's there.

@thunderpossuem: to change the angle place two fingers side by side on the screen and wipe down, repeat the same while wiping up to return to an overhead view.

I can't seem to rotate though which is a shame, still a great update.

Try as I might, I just can't make it work. Not that it really worries me. We don't have any of that 3d business over in Brisbane

your right toronto has 3d buildings...very cool...compass feature/offline browsing are also extremely useful features...

maybe rotate will be added or maybe the legend doesnt have that type of multitouch...

Rotate does work on the legend. tap on the "center on my location" button, and tap once more, the burton will change into a compass. There are two modes. One of them will rotate the map when you rotate your phone.

i knew about this compass mode - can you rotate any other way?

what i meant is rotating like in the google map video...kind of a pinch rotate 'gesture'
