The latest version of Maps v3.08 is here with a beautiful little weather app to help you plan for the day by the hour or give you a handy five day overview. Also, to make your commute safer, we’ve added live traffic routing info in the Drive start screen, cleaned up the UX framework and made search results easier to read. And remember that really annoying Drive to contacts crashing bug? Gone.
There’s also a new installation UI that shows you what’s installing in your phone as it happens, instead of one massive file uploading at once. Be warned that you will need an internet connection the entire time of installation and it may take longer than before. Apologies in advance for this! Rest assured, it’s a necessary step for very cool things to come!

New installation UI:
In this release of Maps 3.08, we have implemented a new installation mechanism which differs from previous Maps releases. Instead of releasing all maps components to you in one large monolithic sis file, we are releasing only a small installer program. It downloads the updated Maps software packages and needed enablers from our servers and installs them on your device. This means that your device must have a working internet connection to be able to run the installer and install Maps 3.08 Beta. The benefit is that the installer will download and install only those software packages that really are needed for your device.
