Another update has arrived for Google Maps on Android and location-based features are at the top of the short list of changes. Your Location History dashboard you might be familiar with if you are a Google Latitude user can now be accessed directly within Maps. Location History gives you a nice statistical view of where you are spending your time and how much time you are spending there. Speaking of where you have been, you can now check in at “home” using Google Maps. Set “home” to an address at your discretion, whether it be the actual place you live or the corner bar you might as well live in.

Google Maps 5.3, which also adds in the ability to edit and add your own categories for Places ratings, is now available in the Android Market.
