Google updates Maps for Windows Mobile

This seems to be the week for Google’s mobile app updates, right? The company has just released a revamped version of the Google Maps for Windows Mobile. The new version comes complete with a couple of changes, including functional route mapping and clearly marked turn-points on every loaded map. The new version is also the first to be released as a stand-alone native Windows Mobile app, having graduated from Java-midlet status. The updates, which bring the software up to version, are certainly welcome, but they still fail to bring Google Maps up to par with some of the other mobile mapping solutions currently available. Sure, it’s free, but voice commands never hurt anyone, right?
