Google Maps for mobile added “biking directions and sharing” for BlackBerry. To get started, go to m.google.com/maps in your BlackBerry’s browser and install version 4.2. Also fixed some issues with permissions and BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation on some 5.0 devices.
- Biking directions: When getting directions in Google Maps, just choose to travel by bicycle to get an optimal bicycling route in US. You’ll also see Bicycling layer on map which shows dedicated bike-only trails (dark green), roads with bike lanes (light green), or roads that’re good for biking but lack a dedicated lane (dashed green).
- Search and Share: next time you’re searching for a late night bite of pizza, you’ll see a redesigned list view of results with pictures & ratings. Select one to see a simplified search results page with easy-access buttons for directions, calling, etc. and all info you’ll need right below. Select a section, such as “Reviews,” to see more. A new “share this place” option lets you send anyone place info, such as its address or phone number, by email or text message.
