Google Maps Updated: 4.6.0 adds real-time Latitude updates and more

Google Maps Android iconGoogle have released a new update today for their Maps app.

The update improves the reviews system for Places and brings it more in-line with what you would see on your desktop computer. You can also now filter reviews to be from “around the web” or just from Google users.

You can also filter your Places searches by “Open now” or “Neighbourhood” as well as the standard Distance and Ratings.

This update also adds much-needed real-time Latitude updates. Google describe this better than I can:

In Latitude, you can also choose an experimental “Real-time updating” option from an individual Latitude friend’s profile page to help meet up with them by temporarily seeing faster location updates (friends must have Maps 4.6 and Android 2.2+).

The update is live right now so as soon as the Market is working again (;)) you can download and install the new version.
