[From Eric Mann] I missed this about mobile Google Map updates but Eric caught it. "Now, when you visit maps.google.com on your phone or tablet’s browser and opt-in to share your location, you can use many of the same Google Maps features you’re used to from the desktop. This will allow you to:
See your current location
Search for what’s nearby with suggest and auto complete
Have clickable icons of popular businesses and transit stations
Get driving, transit, biking, and walking directions
Turn on satellite, transit, traffic, biking, and other layers
View Place pages with photos, ratings, hours, and more
When signed into your Google account, access your starred locations and My Maps" More deets after the jump.
