Upgrade to Google Maps Australia & New Zealand

Yesterday Google released an upgrade to Google Maps online mapping service which will enable users in Australia/New Zealand to find local information. This includes business listings, driving directions and support for Google Maps for mobile.

Google Maps Australia Beta went live back in May 2006 but the website simply provided flat street maps and satellite images, but the upgrade means it now offers virtually identical functionality to its US counterpart.

I do wish the satellite images were updated more frequently. Checking out my own address in Auckland still shows the image of our house being built.....we have lived in it over a year.
