Google has updated its Map App on Android to support vector-based graphics for faster loading and better 3D views, and also Google is opening up that goodness to 3rd-party developers with a new update to the Google Maps Android API.

As it plans to expand its Maps Application, Today, Google announced the new version 2 of the Google Maps Android API.

In addition to letting developers easily add vector-based maps to their apps, the updated API also added the ability to add more layers in their apps including satellite, hybrid, terrain, traffic and indoor maps. So starting now, Google Maps in 3rd-party apps should be much more dynamic.
