And ... Google Maps updated to 3.3.1 - does it fix any of your problems?

More than a few of you have had some issues with the latest version of Google Maps for mobile, either with the My Location feature or apparently with the layers. Accordingly, Google has updated the app to version 3.3.1. No word yet if it's fixed any of the triangulation issues you guys were having, but crashes should be squashed.

Go get the new version here, and sound off in the comments if you're still seeing problems, and be sure to let 'em know on the official Google forum post. (For what it's worth, it very quickly got me within 1,000 meters in Orlando.)

its still way off for me :/
it says I'm in the middle of Manhattan, even tho I'm in south Brooklyn..
"Your location within 43000 meters."

seems like cell tower triangulation isn't work and it's using IP address of my phone.
the moment i enable wifi it moves to the right location.

G#d Da&)*t!!

No, it did not fix things, though they are getting better.

Like Max above, it says I am in Manhattan NYC, even though I am still (unfortunately) on Long Island.

That's better than D.C. but still about 75 miles off. Dude, did Google fire their MyLocation team or what? WTF.

I couldn't even get 3.3 to work on my Imagio, but 3.3.1 is working fine, and my location is better than it was in 3.2.1. However, it did crash once already.

Says I am in Colorado Springs Colorado with a radius of 43000 meters. I am actually in Arlington Texas so I would say just a little off

I had no problem with 3.3. Installed 3.3.1 and now it is way off. That is it's off by 5 miles (not 3 states). I have a a blackjack II on att.

My location within 20 meters. I haven't had any problem with any version lately. Tilt 2 Att. Lafayette La.

The update acts pretty similar to the rest of the Google Map versions I've run on my Omnia (update 6.1 Verizon). It says it has me to within 4500 meters but seems a bit further off. However I'm in a VERY rural part of upstate NY so satellite coverage is tough at best. Even after reseting the program it fails to find me. Close but no cigar.

Wonder what exactly they broke. Latitude has been down now for several hours here in Ontario (confirmed to be a problem on the iGoogle.com website, checked three Windows phones and 6 Blackberries ... it sure as heck isn't just my phone).
