Its a great applicatioin. One thing if added would make it the best ever. Maps should be doanloaded to the SD card for any city or country of the user choice and added information to be added as online base. SO make us use less internet.
The permissions are absurd.
Why google maps need permission to make a phone call?
I love the integration with contact addresses, when organizing a meeting, to find the place in no time. The street-view is a plus to be in control when in unknown places.
I use it every day! A must have app in your Android.
