Palm and Google Bring Google Maps to Treo Smartphones
Palm, Inc. will deliver the popular interactive mapping experience of Google Maps to Palm Treo smartphone users through a partnership with Google. Google Maps for mobile optimized for Palm OS based Treo smartphones is a free downloadable Palm OS application that offers directions, local search, moveable/scalable maps, location satellite imagery and traffic updates while on the go.

Google Maps for mobile on Treo smartphones offers comprehensive information on traffic conditions in more than 30 U.S. major metropolitan areas, and partial information in many others. Users will receive detailed driving directions with traffic estimates to avoid congestions, plus one-touch recall of favorite locations and routes.

The software also brings integrated search results for business locations, restaurant reviews, hotel amenities and hours of operation, plus interactive maps to explore further, reaching beyond current locations.

Consumers will be able to see satellite and aerial views of the regions covered in the maps provided.

Google Maps for mobile has been optimized for the Palm OS-based Treo 680, Treo 700p, Treo 650, and Treo 600 smartphones.
