    The map does not change orientation when I rotate the device or if I change the setting to track North. It also does not track up. Useless.

    Okay I see what you are talking about I thank that setting only effects when you are navigating to a location not in the static maps view. I tested a little I will test more later tonight.

    yep, it seems to only apply when actually using the turn by turn directions, not when just using the maps.
