This app was updated earlier today and is available for download from the Android Market. Google Maps 4.1 requires you to be an Android 1.6 (or higher) user. Users with Android 1.5 on their devices like the HTC Hero don’t get this update.

Look for the update in your Android Market downloads or you must have already got the tiny update notification in your notification bar.
