Google Maps for iOS Updated with Faster Access to Navigation [PICS]

Google has updated Google Maps for iOS with faster access to navigation, a shortcut to tips and tricks in the side menu along with bug fixes. The navigation improvements mean you can now tap ‘Start navigation’ when you bring up route options to save you a tap compared to before, plus route and traffic overview.
