Google today released an update for its iOS mapping application. The latest build, version 4.2.0, allows users to filter their restaurant searches by the type of food offered, get global weather reports, and add transit directions to your phone’s calendar. You can also add pins to the origin and destination during navigation.

There are, of course, other miscellaneous “bug fixes” that have been applied. The free update is available from the iOS App Store.

What’s New in Version 4.2.0 • Filter searches for restaurants by cuisine type • See current weather information for cities around the world • Drop a pin for your starting and destination points in directions and navigation • Add transit directions to your calendar • Bug fixes
