"CNET has it wrong - useful function replaced with fluff"1.0 starson by tjlski
Pros: it's still free
Cons: Have a look at recent reviews in play.google.com - almost nothing but complaints. No longer separate icons for maps and navigation, zoom buttons removed, location errors, terrain layer gone, offline maps less functional, no starred-locations, etc.
Summary: very disappointed - I reverted to the old version on my HTC One and won't be updating anytime soon.
