I by chance decided to check on Google Maps for any update to the version I recently installed when reloading my device and found that there is a new version out for download, Version 2.3.1 has been released, which brings new updates such as Street View and Walking Directions. Apparently there is an improvement to My Location, I am yet to see this where I am.
The clarity of the panning street view is better than I thought for a Mobile device, I never really faulted the newer BlackBerry devices for there quality screen and they are certainly proving themselves with this.
You can find a short YouTube video on the updates here
You can pick up the latest version from www.google.com/gmm. Thanks to Paul for also sending this in!
