Google updated their hugely popular Google Maps application today to version 4.2 for BlackBerrys. The new version adds biking directions so you can figure out the optimal bike path in the US or view a layer of bike maps or bike only trails along with bike lanes. The biking layer shows dedicated bike-only trails (dark green), roads with bike lanes (light green), or roads that are good for biking but lack a dedicated lane (dashed green).
Google has also improved the search and added sharing features to the app. Now when you search it will show you pictures and ratings with easy contact information. It will also let you send the info on that page by email or SMS. You can even send a snapshot of where you are on the map to a friend.
You can pick up the new version from m.Google.com/maps from your BlackBerry
Google also mentioned that they have fixed some issues with permissions and BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation on some OS 5.0 devices.
