How many people have been able to get the new 3D maps feature to work and on which device? I have the Droid X and for some reason I havent had any luck..

It seems to work for me.  Just checked the Amtrak station in KC and it shows as 3D.  However I am zoomed in almost all the way just to see it

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Glad you got the maps to work, Wildman. The only reason I choose that location in Kansas City was I once got off the train there and knew where it was. It was a complete guess that the area might be in 3D. Smiley Happy 😄

Thanks, Glad I figured it out also because it was confusing me, also I figured out that my issue was because of the area I was looking in because it appears that the map shows until you hit 23rd street of the city and the maps stop and it appears they only cover major traffic areas of the city..

The kudos buttons look okay to me.  Much better than a few days ago on the desktop view where the word Kudos looked like it was 75% or more erased for all other posters besides mine (since one can't kudo your own post, LOL) .  The mobile view was strange yesterday in that the red topic title bar was half white and half black. The up & new button were white.  the combo was hard to read.  Also the sub-forum selection were weird black and gray stripe bars.  Its all cleared up now.  However it does bring a question.  Are there any screenshot apps that don't require you to void your warranty first?  I also haven't gotten around to loading Android ADB (I think that's what it's called).
