Google Maps 4.1 released for Android

Google has released its latest Maps software for the Android based systems.  The latest version is 4.1 and includes a few new features such as a better results screen, support for multiple Google accounts,  and swipe gesturing.  The last feature is pretty neat as it allows Google Maps to be used as a live background on your phone.  Yes, that way your background can always be a map of where your at and of course constantly moving with you.  That’s a pretty cool feature to have.  I can hear draining batteries everywhere as we speak ;)

Google Maps 4.1 is available for Android systems 1.6 and up.  And if you’re interested in the live wallpaper idea, you’re going to need Android 2.1 or up.  Roll out that firmware!
