Yet another revision. Not sure if this is the right direction. What do you guys think?

This is definitely the right direction.
It looks great.
The color scheme is definitely more inline with the other Socialize elements you produced, which is an improvement. The map pin looks like it's floating above the map, though, as opposed to being stuck into it.
Best one of the bunch... very well done!
I love the simple lines. Very neat. That blue transparency is gorgeous!
Best of the set.
What if the pin appeared more like it were stuck/pushed into the map? The way the drop shadow currently is, it appears to be separated from the map a little.
if this is for an app based on the mapkit framework and its look & feel, the blue pulse is really more apropos with the previous version (http://dribbble.com/shots/167883-Location-Icon-V2).
from a semantic standpoint the pulse has come to connote where you are, whereas the pins stand for points of interest around you or particular destinations. combining the two just doesn't "feel" right to me.
Much better on the pin and pulse(?). I'm sure you've tried it, but this pin with the other map might be a better mix.
Map colors in this version are just perfect!
I love the v2.
much better. I think the color scheme is much more in line, and not distracting from the pin and beacon. i would maybe play with fading the bottom of the pin into the blue beacon a bit like it's coming from around the point not underneath it.
Looks great :)
One thing, I can't help but feel the pin doesn't quite feel like is going through / piercing the map element enough? Maybe it's the drop shadow on the bottom or maybe it's just me :(?
To me, the last version seemed too much like one icon just slapped over the top of another icon so this one feels more cohesive. I definitely like this one more.
p.s. I'm not saying you "just slapped" that other icon together, that was just my first thought when I saw it. I know you put a lot of thought into this stuff
trumps all the others
I really don't like the pin going over the top of the icon. It goes against all official icon guidelines.
@Joshua Lee Tucker
it's not the actual app icon. It's an in-app icon.
Not a big fan of the reflection on the pin, but thats just me. Looks nice!
love it !
