At the Google I/O conference in May, Google showed off an all new maps application. The new maps featured better traffic and navigation and a new explore function. The goal of explore is to provide you with all of the information you need to do just about anything you want in the area surrounding your location. Explore will provide the best places to eat, drink, shop, play and sleep according to Google. The maps app has also been optimized for tablets with new features for larger screens. The updated app is out today, and the updated features will trickle down to users over the next few weeks.
