Google Maps for mobile browsers updated

Not everyone has access to a dedicated Maps application on their phone or tablet, and while Google works towards dominance on every platform, a uniform mobile browser experience for Maps is a great solution. The maps.google.com site asks users to opt-in for location sharing, which will facilitate many of the features those of us with a dedicated Maps app have come to take for granted. Viewing your location, searching for nearby businesses with icons and the ability to view layers–such as transit and satellite images–are available for your navigating pleasure. With Places integration and the ability to star and save locations in your Google account, Maps for mobile is an indispensable tool for those without an app, and for those who simply prefer a web interface. Are there any of you out there?
