I have an lg motion with Google maps installed. For a good while now been using maps to get around town (I live in NYC). Maps had both the bus routes and schedule. About 3 months ago I heard there was Google maps version 7 was out but the play store won't update it. It showed open or uninstall. Maps 6 is great but about a month ago I found a maps 7 apk and downloaded it.
If during the trip I drag the screen to see, for example, what's near my route, Maps goes into "pause" mode: I have to be sure to tap "Resume" at the bottom of the screen or else the navigation won't continue. It's really annoying to have to always be concerned that Maps might have quit navigating.
Last year, Google launched Maps Engine Pro, a service that aims to make it easier for businesses to create, manage and share maps to visualize their data. Until now, this offering was purely about map creation, but today, Google is adding Maps Coordinate into the $5 per month and user Maps Pro subscription service and is building it right into the existing Maps Engine Android app.
While most users of Google Maps make use of the normal Google Maps product, whether on the desktop or on their mobile device, other users tap into Google’s Maps Engine product to create custom maps. Starting yesterday, Google started rolling out an update to the Maps Engine mobile app that included a change to the name of the app. It is now known as My Maps and even got a new logo.
