maps-downloadWhen it comes to getting around, especially in unfamiliar places and in foreign countries, having some kind of navigational software or app on your mobile device makes plenty of sense. Here we are with word that Google has just updated Google Maps for Android, and this particular update will stock its fair share of goodies such as an expanded search-along-route, in addition to popular-place notifications.

In the latest update to Google Maps for Android, convenience would be the main theme in this particular update. For instance, while you are en route to your destination, you might have a slight sense of adventure and would like to try out a new place to eat along the way, without having to veer too far off the original course. What used to be made available only in driving mode, is now also available when you are cycling or simply making your way around the neighborhood on foot with Google Maps v9.26.1.

Apart from that, this new update to the app will come with its fair share of minor UI changes, while throwing in an option to deliver notifications in order to inform you of popular places as well as those that have been recently added to Maps which are within the immediate vicinity.
