Okay, now that I've had a chance to use it. I keep the theme set to night as it uses less juice that way. With the new version the "Next turn" bar at the top of the screen appears to have grown back towards the using a 3rd of the screen (not quite but more than a 4th) and is now opaque again. It was the first thing I noticed different when I fired it up. When you get close to the destination that bar pops up as well, it's still translucent but the two bars together took up nearly the top half of the screen (I use it in landscape mode rather than portrait.
This needs to be fixed again. It was annoying when 3.6 came out, then they fixed it, but now it's back to annoying, make it smaller and translucent. I did try the foursquare check-in and that was convenient. As others have noted the FB friends object is just a waste of space covering up map real estate, I wouldn't mind giving up that real estate for a speedometer but not for a a useless counter showing zero friends, heck it could show all 300+ friends I have on FB and it would still be worthless.
But the biggest problem I have is the navigation bar again being annoyingly big and opaque.
Device and OS are in my sig.
