Google indoor maps hits UK, helps you find platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross

Latest Google maps update helps directionless gadgeteers find their way indoors

Google has launched its indoor maps service in the UK, allowing users to find their way around more than 40 UK venues via detailed indoor floor plans.

Selected sporting arenas, train stations and museums are covered, as are department stores like Harrods. Simply fire up Google Maps in a supported location, zoom into your location, and let the indoor floor plan automatically load up for your perusal.
