Google Maps Updated, Includes Transit Navigation Improvements And Bubble Buttons

Google Maps received an update today with some nice fixes and additions.  This update brings the version to 5.9.0 and the highlight is the inclusion of Bubble Buttons.  The last major update include the addition of Transit Navigation for those of us that tend to get distracted with our phones and lose track of stops.  Well this update included some fixes to the Transit Navigation, which I am sure is most welcome by the more absent minded of us.  Here are the changes that are listed for his update;

  • Voice and ring tone notifications for Transit Navigation (Beta)
  • Tablet support for Transit Navigation (Beta)
  • ‘Bubble Buttons’ Lab to add call and navigate buttons to results on the map
