Posted by

Just now I got a notification on my Optimus 2x Android smart phone that an update is available for Google maps. Google Maps for Android updated to version 5.6.0, a minor update that brings ‘Best Ever’ ratings and restaurant awards to Place pages.

Best Ever option, allows you to mark a location as the ‘best ever’ for coffee, home alliance store, Biryani, etc. This will certainly help others to approach particular location-based on your rating.

Google Maps Update 5.6.0 is only suitable for Android powered smart-phones .Google Maps poses three main features, namely:

  1. Navigation: Free, voice-guided GPS navigation system.
  2. Places: Find, rate, and get Recommendations for places.
  3. Latitude: See friends on the map and check in at places.



If you are using Google Maps you should get update notification or you can check Updates in ‘My apps’ at Android market or download it through below QR code.
