Update to Mobile Google Maps

Yesterday Google modified the hybrid feature on the full version of Google Maps, today Google updated their Mobile Maps app to include a somewhat new layout and a few features. The feature of most note would be the "My Location" option which works on phones that are unfortunate enough to not have built in GPS. The My Location feature uses cell towers to approximate your location, not quite GPS but it works pretty well. With a range of 500 meters to 5000 meters, depending on how dense the area is. So if you are lost in Wichita trying to find your brother-in-laws this may not help, but it is fun at the least. Oh and it won't eat your battery nearly as much as GPS will. If you have a Blackberry, a Nokia S60, or a WinMo device check out
