Layers added to Google Maps Mobile!

Google added a new feature to it’s maps application yesterday. It’s called ‘layers’.

Imagine stacking a few layers of transparent sheets on your map, each displaying different information.

You can activate the layers by clicking on options > layers. It will bring out a menu that lets you select which layer to activate, wikipedia, traffic, transit lines or my maps. Currently traffic and transit lines are not available in Malaysia yet so we can only add the Wikipedia layer.

Tapping on the Wikipedia icons brings up an extract of Wiki article about the particular location or landmark. There is  also a link the original article on the website.
