Google Maps 2.0 Released for iOS
Following Google’s Tuesday evening announcement of making the new Google Maps available to the public without the need for an invite, the company has issued an update to the iOS Google Maps application that brings the application to version 2.0.
The update to Google Maps adds features mentioned in last Wednesday's tease, including a newly designed application for the iPad, as well as handy new turn-by-turn navigation features including enhanced navigation, live traffic updates, and incident reports.
In addition, Google Maps 2.0 includes support for walking directions in malls, airports, and other large public locations. Users will also get to take advantage of Explore, a new feature that finds all of the most popular places to do things around you and lets you see them in a list view.
The update also adds reviews to local places so users can read about other people's experiences, and users will also get to view offers via Google Offers in the application.
Existing users of Google Maps will find the update under the Updates tab in the App Store. Alternatively, users can download the latest version of Google Maps for free via this App Store link.

I noticed it now has satellite view during navigation. Not sure if that was available before or not though.

Footpaths that weren't there before are now and walking directions use them. It does seem better.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

2. Do you even know why Apple ditched Google Maps? It's because Google would not implement turn by turn directions on iOS so Apple said buh-bye.

I'm glad you told me this was an iPhone forum, I didn't realise...
Would not? Or Could not. Please get your facts right.
People defending all things Apple, even when they are clearly inferior, is strange. They bring out a polished turd and people defend it because its Apple.
