Google Maps for Mobile 5 gets 3D graphics
100 cities worldwide receive a 3D makeover on the free mapping service
Google’s superb gratis navigation service for smartphones – Google Maps for mobile – has received a rather glossy update, as was shown off by the company’s Andy Rubin at the D: Dive into Mobile event last night.
Version 5 of the software has had a bit of a facelift, and added 3D vector graphics to the proceedings. This information has been gifted to 100 cities around the globe, and means that you’ll be able to guide yourself around with the help of 3D buildings and landmarks guiding the way.
