    Any idea when an update to Google Maps might be happening?

    Specifically I'm looking for the layers & My Maps functionality. Something I had in my Nokia N96 version before taking the plunge and upgrading to a HTC Hero. Seems I've taken a back step as currently these functions aren't available yet!

    Are you talking about "My Map Editor" from google ?

    If so there is an app out there. I have it on my phone and it works great.

    Goto market and search "my maps editor".

    When you say layers , Do you mean something like this? Scroll down and you will see Google Maps with Layers such as Wikipedia and My maps :)

    There are a couple of Apps that may help (I'm quite new to this too).

    One (which I love) is Layar

    Another is an app called 'My Maps Editor'

    Get them both from the Android market.

    Yep, that's the one :)

    OK so I'll have to wait for Android 2.0 to arrive for the Hero. Another topic for another time.

    Thanks also. I already had Layar installed but 'My Maps Editor' seems to almost fit my requirements...Thanks!
