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 for driving, walking, even taking 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 for 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 Windows Mobile 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.

"Crap that will not open"
Version: Google Maps for Windows Mobile 4.1
Don't know, it won't open;..After installing and trying to open, it just goes back to 'install' again. I've tried deleting the app and starting again, (3 times), but it will not open.....I give up
none that I can think of.
It won't open for me after installing. It just goes back to 'Install', again . I've tried it 3 times and each time I get the same response so I've given up....Maybe it will work for you.....
