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?
