Google Maps mobile 4.5 for Android adds Walking Navigation and Street View smart navigation
Google has updated its Google Maps for mobile on Android with two new features, Walking Navigation (Beta) and Street View smart navigation. Walking Navigation lets you use GPS navigation with walking directions that are more direct and use pedestrian pathways when we know about them. Walking Navigation is still in beta, and Google Maps may not always have up-to-date information or optimal walking routes. If you want a sneak preview of where you’re going, use the new Street View on Google Maps with smart navigation and updated imagery.

You’ll need to download an update for the “Street View on Google Maps” app in Android Market separately from Google Maps. Once you update, access Street View just like before: open Maps, search for a place or long-press the map, and choose the Street View option if available.

Google has also announced the new Google Maps search bar with new features that may be helpful when you’re looking for nearby places:
+ Filter search results by distance or ratings
+ View prices categorized with dollar signs
+ See cross streets for places.

Google Maps for mobile 4.5 and Street View smart navigation are available now for Android 1.6+ everywhere they’re currently available. Search for Google Maps and then Street View on Google Maps in Android Market to update both.
