Google Maps for mobile lets you carry the power of Google Maps in your pocket, so you don't get lost on your travels.
It's not always practical to carry a map around with you to help you get to where your going. If you find yourself getting lost on a regular basis, or if you're a keen traveler then Google Maps for mobile is the one for you. Besides offering digital urban road maps and satellite views, Google Maps for mobile furnishes you with a bevy of other cool features.
Built on the popular online app, Google Maps for mobile includes an address search with location determination and a built-in route planner. The zoom function is arguably easier to handle than on a PC, through clever use of the joystick or soft keys. If you have GPS functionality on your phone, then Google Maps for mobile is even better because it can show you your current position on the screen.
The search in Google Maps for mobile is as straightforward as ever and also allows you to look for points of interest such as cinemas, shops or restaurants, although the frequency of these will vary depending on where in the World you're looking at. You can even program your own favorites, so that you never need to forget where that nice bar you visited was. The latest version of the app now comes with Street View, so you can get a really close view of major cities.

I downloaded and installed v 2.3.2 several times. But when I tried to connect it to the web I kept getting an error that said I needed a network connection. My phone has a network connection. All other web apps work fine. Very frustrating.
It is terrible! What about the previous version? I could point out my favorite places and mark them with a star.... not any more
