That's another nice thing about the Blackberry - no need to turn it off and on, or swipe. You just take it in and out of your holster.

But the BB can't do this:
Go to Google Maps and search for your house or a well known site. Then touch the bubble containing the text of what you searched for. You will get a menu. Scroll down to Street View and click that - it will show you a street-level image of that place that you can scroll around in - pretty cool, right? Now, this is where it gets really cool - touch the menu button and select compass mode - enjoy!!! :-)
If the image doesn't seem to follow your movement, wave the Droid around in a figure 8 which seems to recalibrate the compass.
