    I just noticed there is an update for Maps (4.3.0). Anybody know anything about it?
    I'm installing as I type this...if I find anything fun I'll be sure to post it!

    (ok, I'm probably being a giant nerd...but Google Maps updates are like christmas)

    Go to Market > Downloads. Google Maps should show "update available".

    I love how appbrain just automatically tells you exactly what needs to be updated after a quick sync

    They could be. I hope not though since that would be pretty lazy on Google's part.

    I use and like AppBrain, but to be clear the Market does that, too.

    Just go to Android Market > Menu > Downloads. All of your installed apps that have outstanding updates will be at the top of the screen.

    I noticed that when I go into Latitude, it finds friends, but 75% of the time will shut down the program, and in one case restarted my phone and I lost my current scene.

    That was for the 4.2 update.

    4.3 update information:

    Google Maps has just been bumped up to version 4.3 in the Android Market, bringing a few new features that are sure to help out in a pinch. The most minor — but still very useful — being the addition of a snapshot view of reviews and ratings when visiting the page for a nearby place such as a restaurant or bar. The new look borrows from Google’s Place Pages for desktop viewing, giving color-coded bars that quickly visualize what people are saying about a certain destination......

    The final addition for version 4.3 is a suggested friends list for Google Latitude. If you use the service you can now quickly look up friends pulled from your Google contacts who are also using Latitude, a feature that easily ups the social value of the location-based service by making it much easier to expand your social network. It still isn’t the explicit check-ins everyone craves, but it brings a more familiar social experience to a service that has seemed to struggle to find its place among the likes of FourSquare and Gowalla.......

    Google Maps Update Will Help You Decide Where to Go, Find Latitude Friends in the Area, and Catch the Next Train There | Android Phone Fans

    Why does Maps need to record audio (a new permission for this update)?

    Voice Search?

    Or else Google has decided to implement the echolocation system from The Dark Knight

    I really like the new transit (bus/train) schedules being added, as I've been using a lot of public transportation lately.

    Not sure if this is new feature or always been there, but the blue arrow identifying your location on the map is also a compass.

    Isn't it required to be manually updated if it has extra permissions added?

    "What's new in Maps?

    -Latitude finds suggested friends for you to add
    -Search results list automatically expands as you scroll
    -Transit station pages show upcoming departures"
