Google Maps Receives New Simplified Menu In Latest Update

Google Maps was updated today and yes, it’s still in beta. Kidding aside, it’s really just a minor update, but anyone on Ice Cream Sandwich will appreciate it. Gone are those three tiny launcher dots and list style menu. You’ll now be able to enjoy a larger built-in menu with a grid format and recognizable icons. This should make it a lot easier to see exactly what options you want to access while driving stopped. They might as well take advantage of the space now that handsets are getting much, much larger.

I can’t imagine what else needs to be done to Google Maps before they’re ready to drop the beta tag but at this point does it really matter? It’s an amazing service and one that has changed the way we get from point A to point B. The fact that it’s free doesn’t hurt either. Well, hit up the Android Market Google Play Store link below and update your Google Maps to the latest version.
