    I haven't had this app for more than 2 minutes and it crashed 2 times already when I try to zoom in the map. A Major problem that needs fixing ASAP.

    The National Aquarium listed closed last year. The Disabled Vets memorial is listed as hopefully opening by 2012...two years later. And the African American History Museum, currently under construction, isn't even listed. Time for an update.

    Love the map and details! Extremely convenient and very easy to use. It did freeze when I tried to zoom in, but seemed to rectify itself soon enough.
