Google just released another update for its Google Maps Mobile with Google Latitude, the company released earlier this year. While the new version doesn't bring any feature updates, it contains several bug-fixes, mainly for Google Latitude.
For instance is Google Latitude background location updating fixed and allows you to continue updating your location automatically in the background even when Maps for mobile is closed. When in background location update mode, Latitude will default to cell ID (cell tower) location detection to preserve battery life. WiFi or GPS detection will not be available in background mode.

However, you might want to keep in mind that, if you run Google Latitude in the background, it constantly updates your location which means you better have a data plan in place. Furthermore, this might drain the battery way more than switching Latitude off, which Google Maps Mobile asks you if you exit the application.

Google Maps Mobile for Windows Mobile is now available in v3.0.1 for Windows Mobile touchscreen and non-touchscreen smartphones. To ensure proper device detection, use your phone's original browser, such as Internet Explorer Mobile.

Cheers ~ Arne
