Google Maps Free application that puts maps, driving directions, business listings, and more in your pocket. With the brand new Google Latitude feature, see your friends' locations and status messages, and share yours with them.
Download Google Maps to your phone, and never carry a paper map again. And with the brand new Google Latitude feature, see your friends' locations and status messages, and share yours with them.
Google Maps for mobile features My Location, a service that allows you to retrieve your current location without the need for GPS. My Location approximates your current location on the map, usually within 1000 meters, by recognizing information broadcast from mobile towers, and in some cases Wi-Fi signals, near you. Google Maps for mobile also uses built-in GPS, or can link to a Bluetooth GPS sensor to more accurately pinpoint your location.
Latitude lets you see your friends' locations and status messages. Share your location and status with select friends.
Map and satellite views
Google Maps provides both map and satellite views of an area. The user interface feels like Google Maps does on the desktop. You can scroll in a direction to see more of the map, or zoom in and out using shortcut keys.
Google's local search engine allows you to search for businesses by name (e.g. "Starbucks"), or by type (e.g. "coffee"). View store hours and ratings, and then dial the business you're interested in with a single click. Thanks to My Location, it's easy to find nearby businesses without even having to enter your current location.
