Google Maps for BlackBerry updated with new features

8 Apr

Last night, Google released a new update for its Maps application for BlackBerry users. The new version (Google Maps 4.0) adds several new features, like:

Search by voice: Press and hold the green call button to speak the place you’d like to find on the map.

Google Buzz: Like Android, Buzz layer has been added (see screenshot on the left).

Suggestions and starred items: Log in with your Google id and see locations you have starred on Google Maps on your PC, It will even predict your search query based on your previous searches.

Everything said and done, we still feel that Google Maps works best on the iPhone, in terms of features. We still cannot get over the fact that Google hasn’t been able to implement the ‘drop pin’ feature on any other platform, Android included. Nevertheless, BlackBerry users can install Google Maps 4.0 by clicking here in their phone’s browser.
