Big gMaps update brings driving mode, Simple Latitude integration and more

Unofficial Google Maps app for Windows Phone, gMaps, has received its first big update in a while. The latest update pushes gMaps up to version 3.2 and brings some great additions to the Google Maps alternative.

First up is the addition of integration with one of gMaps other apps, Simple Latitude. The team says that if you're using Simple Latitude, you can now simply log in to gMaps and see your friends and family right on the map. Those who haven't signed up for a Simple Latitude account can register an account from within gMaps and start using the service right away.

Next up is a new driving mode, allowing users to plot routes and head off to any location with built-in navigation. And finally, gMaps has tweaked the interface to improve the user experience with things like full-screen maps (hide controls by tapping once), a single page to view in-app purchases, and the ability to sync your purchases when you switch Microsoft accounts.
