So even though Google’s own site doesn’t mention it, it appears that they’ve released an update of their Google Maps application for the N95. Anyone can get it by going to google.com/gmm, or you can just use this mobile code:
This new version is light years ahead of the older one in terms of ease of use. The map scrolling is smoother and easier to use, and the interface is cleaner. Here’s a screenshot of the application in action:
I can even switch it to satellite view and see things like traffic patterns.
Hey, notice that text across the top of the screen? That’s right, I asked the program to show my location, so it’s activated the GPS receiver on the N95 and is attempting to get a lock on the position. Once it has a lock, then it zooms in and centers on your location (indicated by a blinking blue dot).
I love it.
