Google Maps for Android has been iterating pretty quickly, and today’s update brings it closer to a one-stop mapping shop for Android users. The app has added functionality for indoor maps, though the only participating locations/retailers at the moment are in the U.S. or Japan. As more businesses and airports come on board, indoor mapping will expand to other countries, eventually to Canada but no estimation of when.
Other improvements are mostly functional: the interface has been tweaked to support the new menu operation in Ice Cream Sandwich, and you can now disable screen dimming when using turn-by-turn navigation.
