Google Maps for mobile now with NYC public transit directions for all platforms ‘cept iPhone
Although Google will soon release what could possibly be the world’s only handset that works perfectly with their online mapping service, they will not let users of phones in other platforms get left behind. Just as the Google Android-powered T-Mobile G1 phone introduces a few new features in its Google Maps app, Google Maps for other mobile devices are also getting an upgrade.
That upgrade is for a new feature called public transit directions, which would let users get information and directions regarding, well, public transit. Google Maps for mobile will feature the same public transit directions found on its desktop counterpart, including turn-by-turn walking directions and the My Location feature.
The new Google Maps for mobile with public transit directions is now available for download at http://m.google.com/nyc. It is a recommended download for Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Symbian Series 60, and many Java-based phone who reside in or will be travelling to NYC.
