Mobile Google Maps now with Voice Search

Google has just released a new Google Maps for Symbian (Nokia) devices which includes voice commands.
I found the voice search very accurate. Here are some screenshots taken from my Nokia E63 whilst testing out this voice search feature. (You can also see on the map Google latitude in operation as well as the Google Buzzes shown as speech bubbles)

Pressing the call button in Google Maps activates voice search

Google Maps will then try attempt to figure out what you said


Results are displayed or press # to have them listed in this way

How have you found it? Leave your comments. Download it at http://www.google.com/mobile/maps/ or http://m.google.com/maps from your Nokia E63.
Below is a table of what the Google Maps for Mobile has for Nokia E63 users.
