Google Maps gets update with new features like hotel search
Other changes allow the navigation function to appear on your phone faster, and offer you an overview of the recommended route along with traffic highlights (or low lights as it may be), And Tips and Tricks is a feature now available in the side menu. Some Google Maps users have reported faster re-routing during navigation use and anything that makes getting from point "A" to point "B" faster and more pain-free, we can all stand behind.
So if you're an Android user, head over to the Google Play Store for your update to Google Maps now. Why wait?

Screenshots from the G2!!! Awesome! I like the way capacitive touch buttons adapt to the color of the app.

Very annoying that pre-cache doesn't work over here (no, I can type in ok maps just fine but there is no pre-cache option here. Worked with old maps).

DO NOT UPDATE THIS GARBAGE!
No multiple destinations, no starred places, no drag and pin.
Absolutely idiotic 'updates' to core functionality.. had to revert back to previous versions. Why this isnt getting more flak, I have no idea, but the new version of android maps is awful.
