Greg Hughes has published a nice overview of Google Maps Mobile running on his Blackberry 8700c. He is very happy with it especially since it is free. The program can be installed over the air and supports a lot of devices besides the Blackberry. According to Greg here’s what you can do with Google Maps Mobile:
- Search for nearby businesses catalogued in Google Local (via the "Find Business" menu option)
- Specify a location to show on the maps (it remembers locations you enter, too)
- Get driving directions to or from any location (just click the location and choose from the menu)
- View locations either in map or satellite view, and toggle between views
- Zoom in and out, and pan left/right, up/down
It looks to be a very handy service, too bad it’s not available for my Treo 700w.
