Alright!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't use drag and drop and no way to zoom into my current location quickly!

Updates for next version please! I can't tell you how happy I am that we have a native google maps app for this!!!

Very nice. Volume buttons work for zooming.

In addition to the other comments, it'd be nice to have a function to keep the screen on (while moving?). Tried it in the car this morning, plugged into the charger. Screen blanks after timeout, even though I have "Screen on while charging" checked in settings.

In their infinite wisdom, Nokia decided that the screen only stays on "while charging", not while plugged in, but full battery, so not actually "charging".

Use the simple brightness applet and set the screen to always on.

I could do that, but then I'd forget to turn it off later, and run the battery down. I'd be nice to have it integrated. Even as a setting (either on or off) while the app is active

Looking really promising!
Agreed.

Use the volume buttons for zoom. Use the enter key to center your location.

You can get the source code with "apt-get source geeps". It is a bit of a mess right now.

Have you found it? I got the category wrong... it may be easier searching for the name (geeps).

Agreed. Didn't know about the "while charging" thing - sounds almost like a joke.
