Latest Google Maps For Android Shows Your Location history Dashboard


Google released today Google Maps 5.3 for Android, which lets you see your Google Location History dashboard, check in at "home," and add your own aspects for places when rating them.

If you?ve enabled Location History for Google Latitude, you?ve been able to visualize interesting trends in your location history with a personal dashboard at google.com/latitude on your computer. Now, you can also see your dashboard on your phone by tapping View location history from your Latitude profile. You?ll be able to see right on your phone how far you?ve travelled as well as an estimate of how much time you?ve spent at home, at work, or out.

You can enable Location History from your computer or from Latitude?s Settings menu on your phone. Google says that Location History is 100% opt-in and is private to you and nobody else. You can always delete any of your location history from the Manage History tab or correct the estimated work and home locations from the dashboard on your computer.

Now that you can see how much time you spend at "home", you might want to let friends know when you?re there. Checking in at places using Latitude is another way to keep a history of places you?ve been and also lets you share when you?re there.

Like Latitude and other check-ins, checking in at home is entirely opt-in. Your set "home" location is not searchable and only you can check in there. Just like any other check-in, you can choose with whom to share your home check-ins (along with your name and address info).

When you?re rating places on the go in Maps using Google Places with Hotpot, you could always leave feedback on a specific aspect or characteristic of a place, such as the food or ambiance. Before, Google would automatically include aspects about places that were commonly mentioned in reviews. Now, you can add your own aspects for each place. So if you think a place has a beautiful view or great music, you can add it yourself and share it with the world.

To get started, update Google Maps from Android Market on devices with Android OS 1.6+ anywhere Google Maps and Latitude are already available.
