    Google Maps has been updated to add a traffic view feature. Now, you can see traffic (if data available in your area) on your Google map! Color coded road overlays indicate traffic speed. Download the new version at google.com/gmm

    Did you click on the "Show Traffic" option on the menu? I mapped to zip 10001 and see lots of traffic near Manhattan.

    Re: Google Maps - new version shows traffic

    Okay, so I've supposedly downloaded version 1.3.0, but when I bring up the app, it still shows version 1.2, which probably explains why I don't yet see the "directions" option. Anyone else have this problem? I'm in Baltimore using a VZW 7130e.

    Look and see if there is another Google Maps Icon on your home screen...

    Thats what got me...Usually when you update, the old version gets "covered up" by the newer version, but it didn't this time.

    Sweeeeeetttt....Man I cannot wait till the day that you can actually look at it and see the traffic...How sweet would that be to be on the interstate, stuck in traffic, and be able to be on your BB and scroll up the interstate to see what is causing the problem...

    N8. I did just what you described last week with TrafficEdge. Real time cameras showed the accident ahead of me. This is very useful in CT because the have a ton of traffic cameras on the highways.
