New Google Maps for Android Phones Show 'Inside the Airport' Details

Anyone with a mobile device that runs Android OS 2.1 (sorry, iPhone users) can now take advantage of Google Maps 6.0 which can show you everything you want to find inside an airport.

10 Worst Airports in the U.S.

New App Shows Airport ATMs, Restrooms, Gates

The detailed maps show where you are (including what floor you’re on), and what direction you’re heading in. More important, they show you the kinds of things you’re most apt to be looking for: ATMs, restrooms, restaurants and stores by name, and where those all important airline gates are located.

Maps Include 18 U.S. Airports, 2 Japan Airports

The app maps out 18 U.S. airports and two in Japan. Unfortunately, it does not include some of the biggest American destinations such as Los Angeles (LAX) or any of the big New York-area facilities like JFK, LaGuardia or Newark – at least not at the moment. Google’s blog notes that more floor plans will be added in the future.
