Street View and Walking Directions in Google Maps Mobile

The latest version of Google Maps for mobile phones brings two popular features that were only available in the desktop version: Street View and walking directions. You can download the application by visiting www.google.com/gmm from a supported mobile phone.

Street View is integrated in the local search results and you can see Street View imagery next to each step from driving or walking directions.


I tried to install the new version, but Google Maps linked to GMM 2.2.0, an earlier version launched in June.

Update. Here are the direct links for Google Maps 2.3.1:

* Java-enabled phones: http://google.com/gmm/apps/v2.3.1/L1/gmaps-231-m2_L1.jar

* BlackBerry: http://google.com/gmm/apps/v2.3.1/L1/BlackBerry-43/gmaps-231-bb-43_L1.jar

* the native versions for Windows Mobile and Symbian haven't been updated
