BlackBerry Gets Google Maps Mobile 3.2 with Layers And All

Google has released the Google Maps for BlackBerry 3.2 and the app now supports layers. I am a big lover of layers (We consulted on an app for Building Permit Management for a big city government recently) and happy to have this capability on my Blackberry.
The layers store various types of information on your maps, for instance you can turn on Google Latitude layer to find where your friends or family are and then turn on Wikipedia to get more information on the places they are at.
You can compose a trip consisting a set of maps using Google My Maps and access them via your Blackberry.
To experience the layers, point your phone at but you can watch the following video to get a bit more information as well.
