First thoughts- pretty bad
Slow map download. Terrible search ability. Just kinda slow and sluggish.

Quick and really useful update
t's good that an update is already available to fix live tracking and compass mode, which broke with the iOS 4.3 update. It is a pleasant surprise that this update also brings some nice little additions and tweaks aside from the aforementioned live tracking fix. My favorite is the additional info displayed when tapping on my current location(blue ball), namely elevation and coordinates, that's awesome!

I love this App
For what it is it is the best global tool of its kind. I do wish they would teak the open map display engine and allow setting label size to a larger value in the App. This is especially important when using a foreign character set and matching the names to street signs. My only other big issue is that Open Maps has the building numbers in places like Kyiv, and the English transliteration of the street names but the search mechanism can't find them. I know the open maps database is not to blame as other web and desktop apps work just fine off the same data. The bonus would be to allow display of the names in the non default language (like English for me instead of Russian) if it exists in the OpenMaps database. A fine app, and I hope they keep improving it.

Since ver-up to 4, this app crashes at launch on my 3GS. It was useful when I visited China in October, but now I won't be able to use it in Spain next week. Major disappointment.

Not quite there
Was looking for an easy way to have map data for iPod touch when not wifi connected. Good tool, but does not allow an easy way to download a large area of maps. I had to continually select the largest download area and reposition. Not quite what I was hoping for. Almost, but hopefully a fix will come to easily download large areas at multiple zoom levels... Not ready for prime time.

Must have application.
I took this to Europe and I used it all the time - I didn't have to pay those outrageous data roaming fees just to know where I was. (be sure to download your maps before you go - watch the video to find out how). Last weekend I took it along to a new town on the coast. When I lost cell signal google maps was useless but openmaps worked great. Nice to see lots of new features and steady improvement!
