About the 1080p fixes.
I don't really like it. On tablets it doesn't really work.
The streetnames are huge, while it was okey on the previous version.

To compare:
3.7.3:

3.7.0:

Firing up the new version and being able to see street names now on my Droid DNA? It's like I just got a whole new toy again. Thanks!

ETA Time calculations seem to be considerably off. I drive about 75 miles each way to/from work. Today on the way in, it was off by about 45 minutes (ETA versus actual time to drive)--I thought there was a wreck or something, but nothing to speak of. For my return, it is showing double the time--usually shows about 1:10, but now showing over 2 hours--with nothing notable on the route.

Navigation was atrocious this morn... Should have been 7 turns to work including freeway. Got routed about 18 turns all through side streets and added about 20 minutes to my commute. I checked my settings and the map and all is good.

I agree, but I had very strange routing and ETA calcs this morning BEFORE I upgraded, as well. I suspect something is misbehaving at the server side.

Same here for me driving home from work. ETA was off by about 15 minutes. I wonder too if it's the app or the server.
