      • background task doesn't work in 1.26

        gmaps doesn't update the location as a background task anymore. I have checked this on 2 other devices. Could you please fix this issue?

              • Nearby Places - Business objects search - List companies

                I think a user should be able to locate any nearby restaurants or anything of the sort while searching. For example if a user types "Safeway" it should process any nearby Safeway's in the area.

                This could be really useful if a user is in a city visiting and wants to find a business or restaurant or even entertainment. Integrate directions along with the feature and it can be a really great tool.

                    on the settings page the option such as to prevent lock is horizontal, while to choose different tabs is also horizontal. Switching settings on or off sometimes switches pages instead. Kind of annoying.

                        The numbers don’t really mean anything. In fact, they will be removed in the next update.

                        Not very pro, if you can't get public transportation routing. Blah!

                        • Updates for WP8

                          Some ideas for WP8-specific updates:

                          1. Update to support higher-resolution WP8 devices (e.g. HTC 8X)
                          2. Register gMaps with the "Get directions from my location" task (for non-Nokia devices)
                          3. Support for other WP8 UI changes, like large-format Live Tile and such.

                                  The way you describe it, it looks like it’s already available :
                                  1 – Start tracking
                                  2 – Search for the address or pin it on the map
                                  3 – On the pin, click on the cross arrow, and change the car to a bike
                                  4 – This shows the fastest route to bike to that location!

                                  Gmaps sollte eine übersetzung ins deutsche habe.
