Google Maps using GPS for start location

I can't get Google Maps to use GPS to determine where I'm at for my start location when trying to get directions on my Droid Bionic after the SW update.  I' ve got access to my location on & enabled  all of the location sources.  I either have to type my location in or add it from Contacts, point on map, or my places.  Is that not a possibility w/ Google Maps on new SW?

A new wrinkle with the update ... did you also go to Settings > Google > Location settings and switch the toggle to On (to allow Google apps access to your location)?
