Google Maps updated to 6.0 and added Indoors Map

 
Google Maps just keeps on getting better, doesn’t it? I was glad to awake to an update this afternoon that got me bumped up to version 6.0. Apparently, Google isn’t going to stop until they map out the entire planet — indoors and out.  In this newest version, we get introduced to “Indoor Maps,” now available for select airports, shopping malls, and more.




















That’s not it, either. There was also a menu added to the top toolbar, which makes it easier to switch between common features, as well as an updated home screen for “Places” which displays popular searches based on your location. Last, but not least, there is now an option to disable automatic screen dimming for Navigation.
