Google Maps for Mobile 3.2 adds multiple layers, My Maps, improved local search

google mobile 32 Google Maps for Mobile 3.2 adds multiple layers, My Maps, improved local searchGoogle Maps for Mobile 3.2, announced this morning for Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile handsets, adds new Layers and improved search to the popular mobile mapping platform.

Now you can see your My Maps content on your phone, along with transit info, Wikipedia information, traffic information with incidents, local search results, and Latitude friends.  Furthermore, you can see multiple layers at the same time.  So, for example, if you combine one of your My Maps running routes with the Google Latitude layer, you can see which of your friends happen to be located along your running route.

Local search results are more comprehensive now, and because it can be a pain to type on a mobile phone, searching starts with a pull-down menu of popular categories.

Windows Mobile and Symbian S60 users can now get Google Maps for Mobile 3.2 with Layers from m.google.com/maps.  It’s available in all countries where Google Maps for Mobile is currently available and an update for other platforms is on the way.
