    Get public transit directions in New York with Google Maps for BlackBerry

    Advertisement



    Now that Google Maps can give you subway, train, bus, and ferry directions in New York City, it's a handy tool for planning a night on the town. But what if your plans change while you're at dinner?

    Luckily, Google Maps for mobile can now give you the same public transit directions right on your cell phone! You can plan trips throughout the New York metro area, including turn-by-turn walking directions. With the My Location feature, most cell phones can automatically set the starting point for your trip, even without GPS. And satellite view and Street View (on selected devices) can show you a preview of where you're going.

    With Google Maps for mobile in your pocket, you can go wherever the evening takes you, secure in the knowledge that it'll be easy to figure out how to get there. Google Maps for mobile with public transit directions is available for Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Symbian Series 60, and many Java-based phones. Download it by visiting http://m.google.com/nyc in your mobile phone's browser.

    This may not be a new version but simply a service update. If already downloaded, you should have the new features with current 2.3.1 app. Let us know...

    This looks good! I can't drive into the city since it's so crazy. I take the train there when I really need to. Good looks on the info.

    I got it last week, but I notice the traffic info don't work....the satellite/street view is pretty old....I checked out street views of my home and work and those pics are truly old over 3 years old!! What gives? is it a security issue?? Or just that there is a lag in the satellite/street views being updated???!!!

    Guys, you can download Metro for Blackberry. It only shows the stops and lacks the maps but is highly usable underground. More info can be found at http://metro.nanika.net/MetroB-en.html. It used to be only available for other smart-phones and is freeware.

    BTW, they have a lot of cities worldwide already covered.
