has just released
Mobile v3.2 for Windows Mobile and Symbian Series 60 which adds a new
feature: Layers. Layers allow you to view locations and additional info overlaid
on the map. You can add multiple layers or remove only certain layers so you
control exactly what information you want visible on the map at the same time.
Familiar info now available as layers include search results, Traffic (with new
traffic incident icons and info), Directions and Google Latitude. New available
layers include My Maps (view-only), Transit lines (w/upcoming station departure
info where available) and Wikipedia. Furthermore it's now possible to browse
popular categories from the Search menu to search the map for businesses or
points of interest by type. However, category searches are currently available
only for results in the US and China.
When you search the map, Maps for mobile will now show you additional search
results beyond the top ten results. The additional results will appear as "dots"
on the map that you can select to see more info. As you pan the map, more search
results will appear. Just zoom in to select a specific dot if there are lots of
results for your search.
Last but not least Google Maps Mobile 3.2 adds My Maps. the My Maps layer from
the Layers menu lets you access your custom My Maps created and edited from your
computer. My Maps are currently view-only from Google Maps for mobile. You
cannot create or edit your My Maps.
Googe Maps Mobile is now available free of charge from Google and can be
directly download from your Windows Mobile device. Please note that v3.2 with
layers isn't yet released for Google Android smartphones.
