Checkins are not useful for what I use Latitude for, please bring Latitude back. Or give an option to go back to the previous version of maps. This looks like Apple maps, overshadows what otherwise looks like a nice app.

Daniel,
It is possible to revert to the original versdion of Maps that came installed on your phone, but it will niot help you in the long run because the Latitude service will be terminated in August. This is the announcement.

I have never used this type of products, but you may want to take a look at the following alternatives to see if one is an appropriate alternative to Latitude if you do not wish to create a Google+ Profile.
