CNET Editors' review
If you don't have a map app on your smartphone, download Google Maps. Now. The free mapping app gets more powerful and indispensable with every update. It can predict your location using GPS or cell tower triangulation, and use that fix to find businesses near you and calculate directions based on your car, walking, even public transit. You'll be able to click to call locations, and send details to friends via text.
Map layers include traffic flows and points of interest on Wikipedia as you switch between satellite and map views. If you're into Google Latitude, a social networking geolocation feature, you'll also be able to track friends. The latest version of the map app can sync your favorite places on the phone and online, so you can revisit a spot on the map no matter where you are in real life. The possibilities for growing Google Maps for Mobile are endless, but we'd settle with adding voice searches next.
Google Maps for mobile is a free download that lets you view maps and satellite imagery, find local businesses, and get driving directions on your mobile device. Google Maps for Nokia/Symbian S60 has a feature to Search by Voice. It can also pinpoint your location and includes mapping layers like real-time traffic, transit lines, and Wikipedia. Since the application is designed for users on-the-go, it provides features like click-to-call and saved search history that are especially useful for mobile phone users.
What's new in this version: Version 4.1 added Search by voice feature.
