Google Maps 2.2.0 June 8, 2008
New version of google maps is out right now. Havent messed with it enough yet but so far so good. Just thought I should share the new upgrade with you all.
The new feature is transit directions. havent messed with it that much but for living in california it would come really in handy. And the download speed is a little faster with this version.
Now you can get reverse directions as well.

Well if google maps is a 3rd party app, I would assume people would post in the right forum. Where was the thread started first? Right in the BB forum 8830. Not applicable to everyone.

This is in the correct place. Google Maps IS a third party application. Not all BB's have GPS capabilities.
Thank you Erica
well i'm downloading it now

guys take this is stride, it happens to everyone, yes gmaps is out, yes is 2.2 version that adds transit directions but yes is not in every city in the US, it will take some time for the google folks to roll it out to all the major cities of the US, ie. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami etc etc. but I'm sure it will, let's be patient
But the fact that it was already posted last night and was 2 threads down from this post under the "New Post" window when this was added should have been seen and I agree with javatyger, people don't search to see if info has already been posted and you have multiple threads going until the Mods catch it and combine or delete them. If something is in the wrong category, email a Mod and they'll fix it.
Getmore also posted this in a double thread until a Mod saw it and deleted the other one.
It's just very nice for those who use the search feature and don't create multiple threads of the same topic.
I just downloaded it and missed the other notice because it was in the 8330 forum. I'm an 8320 user - no, I don't have a GPS phone but I use GPS with a puck and I use Google Maps both with and without a puck.
Thanks for the update notice in a more general forum - I'm a big Google Maps fan and user.

WMATA isn't cooperating yet, so no Transit Directions for the Washington, DC area.
For those of us who live in the boondocks transit info is meaningless anyway. But I do like Google Maps and always try to have the latest version.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~what is transit exacly.
Hey thanx for posting this up even if it was already up or not.
