    Today, Maps was updated to version 6.7 in the Play Store and integrates Google Offers inside the Maps app. adds the new features to see available Google Offers in your area, straight from within the Maps app. Clicking on Maps dropdown menu inside the app pulls up a list of all nearby available Offers in your area, and you can even switch to map view and see exactly where each of them are located. See something you like? You can either redeem the Offer and that time, or save for later — the choice is up to you. And, if you like, you can even opt-in to receive notifications whenever there are offers nearby.

    Also added was their all new indoor walking directions for businesses that have provided Google with their floor plans. Now, you’ll never find yourself lost inside a new mall, always knowing exactly how to get to Cinnabon in the shortest amount of time (still waiting on turn-by-turn indoor navigation).

    I'm not going to lie, something about this feels a little bit "Idiocracy-ish". :tongue:

    But cool nonetheless...

    Something that was added a couple of versions ago was near-instant publishing of data from Google MapMaker. Now all of the updates by users who are familiar with the area and keeping it updated appears almost immediately.

    Sadly, navigation directions still take a month or two to update, but good stuff nonetheless. :)

    try this instead

    do we need ads every time we use google maps now?
    is the whole world being sold out to corporate ads on everything we apparently don't own.....

    try copilot live instead... much better
