Google Maps Gets Update

There has been a big debate over which is better when it comes to maps. Some say Google Maps while others live in Live Search. Google is trying to change that and take the number one spot with the 2.2 update. Moments after Microsoft released their Live Search update, Google followed suit and added cool new features like favorites, public transportation directions, and center point on the map.

The new 2.2 will give users the ability to track bus and train schedules. With these ridiculous gas prices google maps could be a great tool in our never ending battle to fight the pump.

I gave it a spin and have to admit the pages seem to scroll a lot better than they did in the previous maps. I also fell in love with the favorites. I automatically added my house, work and family members as favorites making it easier to search in certain areas.

  • Unfortunately, Google Maps for Windows Mobile is still stuck at 2.1.0.10... :(
  • Yeah...I have been hearing about this 2.2 version for over a week now, and every time I go to update it is still 2.1.0.10, and doesn't even work on my Axim x51v (I think they added some code that looks for cell towers now). Any help on where this mythical 2.2 version lives?
  • How was this "given a spin", if it's not available for WM yet?
  • same question here too.. the 2.1.0.10 version will never connect for me on both the Dash and Wing both are 6.1. had to go back to an earlier version of the google maps for it to work. So I am currious as well. 1. Where can we find version 2.2 and 2. Is this working on the Windows Mobile Platform.. ?
