Google maps update: New features for Android and iOS

Google Maps gets a big update for Android and iOS. Thus, the already very good in my opinion Kartenapp is clearly leaner and faster than the old version. The update coming soon for all Android users from Android 4.0.3 (ice cream sandwich) and iOS. Some functions have been replaced by new (E.g. Google latitude Google +), overall, the update is however recommended.

New function is fast and uncomplicated in the categories of food, drink, sleep POIs, for viewing entertainment and shopping. In addition, the routes of navigation has been improved and proposals for alternative routes should be better solved. Something annoying the abolition is for many the – especially for the travel – very important function “ offline maps ” be. Google has provided but still this function, but more as a hidden feature. Instead of loading the cards as usual using the function in the offline mode, now needs to be “ OK maps ” be entered in the search box. What was thinking Google happy?
