A Google Maps update to version 4.3 should be available to everyone in the Android Market and includes some nice new features you’ll enjoy.

The first is an update to search results when looking for say, a place to eat.  You can now check out current ratings, thoughts and overall feel for a place to help you with your decision.

The second update and probably most important, is the addition of transit schedules and locations.  It’s funny that this update came out this week as some of my friends and I were just complaining about the lack of this feature over the weekend.  Yay Google!

And the last of the new features is a major Google Latitude overhaul.  You can now find friends and family plus share your location with them so much easier.

Anyone tested the new goodies yet?

*Note* – To those running a Droid Froyo ROM, you may run into issues with the update.  Stay tuned for a permanent fix.
