    I don't see stores being labeled (unless I search for something). Got a screenshot?

    I noticed the same thing. All the building on my campus are labeled, as well as hotels and other businesses in the area. I assumed it came with the bus-walking directions update.

    i think the update was on google's side, but yes, that stuff started popping up when public transit/walking/driving directions came about

    This is definitely new to me.

    Also, the text in satellite view is white with black outline. I swear it used to be different...like all white text?

    Its too bad we can't actually click on a map listing and have GMap give directions to there. Unless there's a way that I don't know about.

    You mean like searching on the browser and the little Google map box is there?

    You can click that and it will bring up Gmaps.

    No, I mean since GMap now has certain listings right on the map, it'd be nice to be able to click on the names of places and have options.

    Ah I got you...I think I remember having that on the one Google app that was out for Winmo.

    Cool! I never noticed that before. I like it. I agree it would be very cool to be able to interact with those icons.
