We had previously seen some quick shots and videos of the latest update to Google Maps, such as with Andy Rubin and his Motorola prototype tablet, well today it is available to everyone in the market. The latest update to Google Maps is a big one and now includes a 3D tilt feature as well as vector graphics, which reduces the amount of “tiling” that you will get when scrolling through maps. Now there is one downside to this update as not all of the Android devices are fully compatible. Amongst the compatible devices there are the Samsung Nexus S, Galaxy S, Motorola Droid, Motorola Droid 2, Droid X, HTC Droid Incredible, Evo 4G, G2. And now for the partially compatible devices (which includes my current Android device, darn!) the HTC Desire, SE Xperia X10, LG Ally and Nexus One are partially supported. It is a little disappointing that the Nexus One is not fully compatible, but I suppose that it does make sense considering today was the launch day for the new Nexus S.
If your phone is not on those lists please download the new version and let us know if it works or not by dropping a comment or by heading over to the Androidnerds Forums
