Earlier last month, Google released Google Maps for mobile with Transit directions for BlackBerry and Java-based handsets. Now, they’ve added the public transit directions for Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile. To get this latest version of Google Maps for mobile with Transit, simply point your mobile browser to google.com/gmm .
Transit directions on these platforms work just like they do on the BlackBerry version of the app — watch the demo video. Simply bring up Directions from the main menu and you’ll see a second tab labeled Transit (or Public Transport), where you can request a route using only publictransportation. You’ll receive a number of alternatives that take you (car-free) to your destination. Transit directions are available on Google Maps in more than 50 cities.
You’ll find a number of other features in this new version of Google Maps for mobile for WinMo and S60: star-ratings for businesses will help you get a feel for what other people think, your search results show up faster than ever, and user-generated content will now surface in your search results.
