Google is rolling out a new update for the Google Mapa for Android, the new update will upgrade your current version to 7.3. The update bring no major features, however it does change how some of the information in the application is displayed.
It changes the way how the app displays notifications, such as the expanded notification window which not only now shows the users their destination and direction, but also additional information including the remaining travel time, distance, and the estimated time of arrival.
The new User Interface was also designed to whole the same amount of information as before, but now the user can see the information more clearly since it was revamped to me more compact and easier to read. The application also has improved icon caching resulting in fewer quests for data from the Google Maps server, which may help save data on limited plans.
