After a 3-month absence, Google Maps is back for iPhone users. It is not only back but it is improved with new features like voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation, more map visible on screen, 2D and 3D views, traffic jam conditions, public transit information and street view and photos inside some businesses. This version has been said to be more comparable to what is available for Android phones.
ESC Mobile users can now upgrade to Apple’s latest mobile software, iOS 6 without fear of losing Google Maps.
If you have already upgraded to the latest operating system for Apple, you will need to download the free Google Maps app from the App Store. When you tap on addresses within ESC Mobile, you will be directed to a google web page. Simply select “open in the Google Maps app” and you will be able to access driving directions familiar from previous apple operating systems.
