Google Maps for BlackBerry Updated to v4.2 Adds Biking Directions, Sharing, & Improved Search


Google Maps for Mobile has been updated to version 4.2.0.  This is one of the most popular Google App available for BlackBerry. The new version now includes Biking Directions, Sharing and New Search results. The new version adds biking directions so you can figure out the optimal bike path in the US or view a layer of bike maps or bike only trails along with bike lanes. The biking layer shows dedicated bike-only trails (dark green), roads with bike lanes (light green), or roads that are good for biking but lack a dedicated lane (dashed green). You can always turn on this layer from the Layers menu to devise your own route.

Google has also improved the search and added sharing features to the app. Now when you search it will show you pictures and ratings with easy contact information. It will also let you send the info on that page by email or SMS. You can even send a snapshot of where you are on the map to a friend.
