Good news for early adopters of the Nexus One, you’re getting your very first software update! Aside from some bug squshing, Google has included a few extra, and highly requested, features in the update:
Google Maps: the Maps application with be updated to a new version, Google Maps 3.4, which will include:
- Starred items synchronized with maps.google.com – access your favorite places from your phone or computer
- Search suggestions from your personal maps.google.com history – makes it easy to search for places you’ve searched for before
- Night mode in Google Maps Navigation – automatically changes your screen at night for easier viewing and driving
The biggest improvement on this list is obviously the addition of pinch-to-zoom functionality in the browser, picture gallery, and maps application; however the “night mode” in Google Maps Navigation is a nice refinement. The update, which will be rolled out throughout the week, will present you with a message in the notification bar when Google decides it is your turn. Hit up the official press release to read the official announcement.
