Biking Maps

Biking on Google Maps for Blackberry

Google has updated it’s Maps application for Blackberry with a couple of new features.  First off it shows you biking routes and offers directions for those of you on two wheels. As Google points out, this feature is still in beta (like half of Google’s software), so you shouldn’t go blindly following the biking directions your Blackberry gives you. The biking map can be found in the layers menu.

Maps 4.2 also features a revamped search results page. The results now show you name, address, distance, reviews, and pictures if available. When you drill down to a result it shows you a screen similar to what is featured on Google Maps for Android.  There are 4 large buttons near the top, offering you the ability to show it on the map, get directions, call the location, and see it in street view.  You can also share the venue via SMS and email, view buzz there, and get more info such as a business’ hours.
