Lots of layers in Google Maps for mobile 3.2

Many of the features in Google Maps involve adding layers of information to your map: the 'More' button (like Wikipedia and
Transit), Traffic, My Maps and search layers (little red dots onyour map).

We're now adding lots of this same functionality to your
mobile phone. With Google Maps for mobile 3.2 for Symbian S60 & Windows Mobile phones (and soon on other platforms too!) you can now access and interact with this content by tapping "Layers" in your main menu.

One of my favorite things about this new version is that I can log into Google Maps for mobile with my Google Account and see the My Maps I've created on Google Maps (like my favorite spots in London) and then line that information up against other layers -- like where my friends are currently with Latitude. Fun!
