Google Maps displays public transport routes for Android-devices
Google has again prepared updated map service for Android. The developers have worked on the additional functionality and improved performance of the Google Maps application.
An enhanced version shows maps with routes and timetables of public transport. Maps cover the area of five hundred largest cities in the world. In general, the maps contain one million stops of trams, buses, metro and urban trains. According to the developers, the idea of these maps came after analysis of the requests of Google users, who often search for schedules of urban transport.
It is noteworthy that Google Maps also show the limits for determining postal code. Experts have prepared a user-friendly interface. For example, using My Places, you can easily find the maps you use most often.
Updated Google Maps application is compatible with mobile devices running Android version 2.2 and higher. You can download the maps for free in the App Store Google Play.Digital cartography and GPS navigation 02-08-2012
