I've managed to get away with running my Galaxy S without every hooking it up to a Gmail account, but sometime in the last couple of weeks (I think following an OS update from Sprint) Maps started objecting that I'm not logged in.
It's a little unnerving -- why do I need to be logged in to search for an address?
I'd love any suggestions for getting around this. Happy to root my phone. I've got OSM installed, but it doesn't do address searches unless I'm missing something.
