Google Mobile Maps 5 Now Available – Features New 3D Maps And Offline Browsing

The new Google Maps 5 may have changed the way we use our phones for the foreseeable future with the new set of features that came with it.  Your Maps app will now display 3D versions of cities, load faster, cache maps for offline viewing, and even allow you to navigate without a connection.  It’s pretty amazing stuff and Google wants you to know more about it.  Today, they released the secret behind this amazing new app, which they are calling “vector graphics.”

Google Mobile Maps v 5.0 New Features :

  • 3D Maps with new ways to interact supporting tilting and rotating – Now users can zoom in on 100+ cities around the world supporting 3D buildings, users can use Two finger drag down/up to tilt the 3D map and twist using two fingers to rotate the map and view it from any direction.
  • Compass mode – Orient yourself on the map. Center on your location and tap the compass button. The Map flips into 3D and automatically rotates to whichever direction you’re facing.
  • Smooth zooming – See the map at the exact zoom level you want. Move two fingers together or apart. The map and labels zoom continuously with your fingers.
  • Offline reliability – Maps of the areas you use the most get preloaded in the background so you can see and interact with the map, even if you lose your connection temporarily.
  • Offline rerouting – Google Maps Navigation (Beta) automatically reroutes you, even if you lose your connection after starting a route.
