Google today updated its Google Maps app for the Android platform, at least for phones running Android 1.6 or higher. The new Google Maps 4.1 comes with a few minor interface improvements, including a more unified search results page. More interesting features include a homescreen widget that automatically finds Google Latitude friends nearby, and a Live Wallpaper that displays an active map with your position on a satellite, terrain or normal mapping view. The Live Wallpaper only works on Android 2.1 phones, like the Nexus One and the soon-to-be-updated Motorola Droid. Google Maps now also supports multiple Google accounts, so users can switch from, say, personal to professional accounts to report a location on Google Buzz or load a different set of My Maps. The updated Google Maps app is available now from the Android App Market.
