An entirely new as well as exciting version has been launched for Google Maps For Mobile. This feature is cuddled up with various aspects like… giving assistance in terms of finding a location, finding out as to what others have to say about it, and learn how to get there on foot – ALL FROM YOUR PHONE!

According to Google Maps for your phone, following are the features:

Google Maps for your phone

My Location (beta)

My Location shows your current location on the map, even if you don't have GPS. Learn more with our My Location video.

Interactive maps

Google Maps for mobile feels just like Google Maps on the desktop. Pan and zoom the map, and view satellite imagery, and even switch into Street View (on BlackBerry and Java-enabled phones) for a closer look.

Business listings

Search Google Maps for local businesses and points of interest. View store hours and reviews, then dial a business in one click. Thanks to My Location, you can find nearby businesses without even having to enter your current location.


Google Maps offers turn-by-turn driving directions – and thanks to My Location, you don't even have to enter your starting point. You can also get walking directions (only on BlackBerry and some Java-enabled phones for now) and find public transit routes in more than 50 cities around the world. Learn more with our public transit video.


Real-time traffic data helps you find the fastest route to your destination.

New! Street View

View street level imagery of addresses, businesses, and turns in directions. Street view is currently available for BlackBerry and some Java-enabled phones. Learn more with our Street View video.


Save your favorite places so that you can easily return to them on the map.


IT managers can install Google Maps on corporate BlackBerrys through BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
