Google updates Google Maps – ability to get driving directions in Trinidad and Tobago

Google has announced several updates to Google Maps for the desktop in a blog post highlighting that it is easier to know where Street View imagery is available. Also, easier to specify and get driving directions. Here’s a screenshot of driving directions from the Hasely Crawford Stadium to the Port of Spain General Hospital.



Google has also said this will integrate traffic information from Waze (a popular map and community based traffic reporting app for mobile devices that works very well in Trinidad and Tobago) but I didn’t see this integration when trying to use directions in Trinidad.  If you haven’t used the Google Maps Preview for a while, there are a lot of visual improvements. Satellite imagery (from looking at the Port of Spain area) is still out of date, however.
