Althought G+'s new Location service is still not a feature complete replacement for Latitude, I have made the move and updated my GMaps app to the latest version that lacks Latitude.  This write up is for those that are running custom ROMs (like Cyanogen Mod).  You no doubt are experiencing a rather useless "Locations" map in the Google Plus app.  People smarter than myself have determined the missing map tiles are due to the fact that the G+ app was never installed to the system partition of our custom ROMs when the GApps bundle was flashed over during the intial ROM setup.  To correct the issue, you can poke around the internet for an updated GApps file that was compiled by a stranger and just trust that the files are authentic and safe. Oooorrrr if you trust your understanding of the underlying Linux file system, you can do what I did and just move your existing installation of Google Plus into the system partition.  

The following is what I did.  

This should go without saying, but I cannot be responsible if anything goes wrong for you in this process.  If you do not understand what is happening here, do not attempt any part of this process!
--------
Inspiration for this process was taken from information gathered at these URLs

--------

I use the unfortunaltely generically named "File Manager" by rhmsoft for all my on-device file system operations
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rhmsoft.fm

1) Obtain Root Access to /system
If you have not already, in "File Manager", make sure to enable the "Root Explorer" and "Mount System Folders" options in the system settings.  If you're prompted to allow SU/superuser/root access, be sure to allow that too. If you are using another file explorer, you'll need one that offers root r/w access to the system partition.

2) Move the APK
in the "/data/app" folder, you will find the Google+ apk file.  Mine was named "com.google.android.apps.plus-1.apk"  Yours may have a different dash number at the end.  Move this file into the "/system/app/" folder.

3) Move the app's lib files
in the "/data/app-lib/" folder, you will find a folder with the same name as the APK in step 2.  Mine was named "/data/app-lib/com.google.android.apps.plus-1/"  Move the contents (not the folder itself : mine contained 13 files) into "/system/lib/" and then delete the remaining empty folder (com.google.android.apps.plus-1) left in "/data/app-lib/".

4) Reboot and enjoy!

Really?? Its Wikipedia that is abusing power? Surely he can't be so clueless to not see the irony in that statement.

Finally Microsoft is moving MSN/WLM messenger into the 21st century. I hope this means federation and interoperability with GTalk is just around the corner. I've been waiting for that forever!

This explains why I can't get logged in on the Android app yet. I'm really looking forward to being able to start using the auto photo uploader!

Thanks everyone for your support, excited to get Google+ out to our Apps users. It'll be a few more days before the Android and iOS apps get Google Apps support. The web app through the mobile browser has Apps support in the meantime. I'm promising to provide daily updates here. :)

This is a pretty cool Pandora Client for Windows. I've been using it for a week now all day at work and haven't heard a single ad or had it pause and ask me if I'm still there. Global media hotkey support on top of that! Pandora lovers should check out Elpis http://www.adamhaile.net/projects/elpis/
