Google Maps Mobile 4.5 for Android adds Walking Nagivation and updated Street View

Google continues to update Google Maps Mobile for Android nearly on monthly basis with new features or functionalities and the 4.5 version released last night it proof of this with the addition of Walking Navigation and a new updated Street View. The Walking Navigation is accessible after hitting the navigation icon and then selecting “Walking” option. As with the regular car navigation feature you will need a GPS fix for it to work. The Street View features has also been updated and now looks closer to what is available on the desktop (but isn’t enabled on my French Samsung Galaxy S). Check out a demo video after the break:

Grab the new 4.5 version directly from the Android Market on your handset.
