Google has pushed out an update to its Maps app for iOS, bringing it to version 2.3.4. The latest version brings enhanced navigation options, together with additional language support.
Indeed, the major improvement in the update is the enhanced navigation functionality. Now accessing navigation is much faster than before! Most notably, you will now encounter route previews (pictured) with current traffic overlay. With this, you can very easily view each and every course, and get your preferred route.
There is also a new ‘tips & tricks’ section within the app’s sidebar that provides you step-by-step instructions on how to use the app.
Here’s the complete changelog of the latest version:
- Enhanced navigation functionality, with complete route and current traffic overlay.
- A new ‘tips and tricks’ section.
- Added support for Arabic and Hebrew languages, including voice guidance in navigation.
- Other bug fixes.
The latest version of Google Maps is downloadable via Apple App Store for free. The app works with iDevices powered by iOS 6.0 or above.
