Google Maps for BlackBerry version 4.0 added new features:

Search by voice save your overworked thumbs. Simply press and hold green “call” button, speak your search, and see your results quickly appear without typing a single letter. Currently supported languages include multiple English accents and Mandarin Chinese.
Google Buzz for mobile let you see what’s going on around you or to post to layer yourself. From Maps main menu, select Layers > Buzz to enable layer; open menu and select “Post Buzz” to add your own public post from a location or place.
Take your searches and starred places to go: Make sure you’ve signed in your Google Account (Menu > Sign In) and have Web History enabled. Signing in to Google Account also synchronizes starred items between maps.google.com on your computer (My Maps > Starred items) and phone (Menu > Starred Items).
Use Labs to try experimental features like Scale Bar or Terrain layer; See nearby businesses at an address or location by selecting a point from the map; Report problem with map data or a business listing. To get started, install latest version of Google Maps 4.0 for BlackBerry by going to m.google.com/maps in your BlackBerry’s Internet Browser. Update for BlackBerry Enterprise Server administrators and users, including support for BlackBerry OS 5.0 phones, is available here.
