Google Maps for Android updated with redesigned Navigation home screen for ICS, higher resolution map tiles
Google Maps for Android has been updated, and reached version 6.5. The enhanced application comes with a new Navigation home screen for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich devices, allowing users to enter new destinations easier.
Another novelty is the inclusion of higher resolution map tiles, making maps crisper and easier to read. This should be noticeable on handsets with high resolution display (like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note, or LG Optimus LTE), and even qHD devices like the Motorola Droid Razr.
In case you haven’t done it yet, you can get the latest Google Maps on your Android device by visiting Google Play.
