This week Google started rolling out an update to Google Maps that has helped make the application run a little bit better. Just like any other minor update to Google applications, there are small bug fixes and little improvements. In this most recent update, you should see quicker access to navigation services, better hotel results, and a new “tips and tricks” section. Unfortunately, the trips and tricks section just sends you to a web page but it is better than nothing.
The update is still rolling out in stages but most people should be receiving the update shortly if they have not already.
– Faster access to navigation, complete with route and traffic overview
– Improved hotel search results with sponsored rates and booking links
– Tips and Tricks available in the side menu
