Google adds biking directions, better search and enhanced share in Google Maps 4.2 BlackBerrys

As the temps perk up across the nation, it’s time to pocket the BlackBerry and jump on your bike – armed with directions from Google. The fresh Google Maps 4.2 for BlackBerry adds biking directions, a redesigned search offering images and ratings as well as a new “share this place” aiming to make it easy to share where you’ll be power-lunching. The update comes on the heels of an update for Google’s own Android app that offered similar features.

Also in the update, Google has fixed some installation issues. Trouble with permissions and BlackBerry Enterprise Server plagued some users when installing previous versions. Google Maps 4.2 should allow users a much better experience.
