Impressive. Now Google has made as well some design changes that is easier to use it on smartphones… and to be honest I think this the competitive advantage over the iOS maps that cannot be substituted easily. Google surely won’t share this data with Apple. Google showed again that they are a game changer. Fortunately this time the once that benefit most are users all from 500 cities all around the world.
