The SHOW MAP feature no longer works with Google MAPS.
old way:
SHOW MAP offered you a preview route to/from current location to destination.
That no longer works; now only shows your current location

A simple work-around
Go directly to NAVIGATE TO
..tap the "X" block (lower left hand corner) to close the current NAVIGATION request..
..it will leave a to/from map on the screen that looks like the "old" SHOW MAP

sorry, not much I can do about Google "improving" (SIC) their MAP app

I was very disappointed. Have had this app about 3 weeks and >3,000 miles including one 2,300 mile cross country trip. This app has so far been of little to no value. It is really just a shell -- it launches other free apps and provides little to no integration on its own. It has basically 2 functions -- navigation using Google Navigation (GN) and "Weather" using NOAA weather services. Running GN from within EMFB gives you nothing that you don't get by running from the Android desktop but you lose the ability to switch out of GN to something else (e.g. radar) without exiting GN. Exiting GN on the road means that you lose the map tiles if you don't have a network connection. The weather functions show forecasts that are of minimal value for cross country riders. The weather radar function shows Google Maps with radar and a little cartoon character on a motorcycle. On my phone (HTC G2), the cartoon character's location does not update as you drive. The only way to get the radar to "follow you" is to exit & restart the weather unit. You're better off using GN stand alone and a free radar app like Raindar & switching between them.

Manage Accounts? Wondering why the latest "minor" update requires permissions to manage accounts and use account authentication credentials? Seems excessive for a "minor" update. App was very helpful and that's how I rated it. Now I may end up uninstalling due to excessive permissions :(

Note working for me Just got this app, installed it and it will open to the main screen then it just stops working. Waiting for response from developers. Samsung Galaxy Note 1. Response was quick and was noted that this app will not work outside of continental US bumped my rating because of the fast response
