Google has bumped Google Maps for iOS up to version 2.5.0 and with it brought some neat new additions for folks in selected locations. Maps will now pull information from your Gmail account and show you your flight, hotel and restaurant reservation information. When you search for your related airport, hotel or restaurant, Maps will auto-populate the location information with your own details.
The same features rolled out to desktop Maps users earlier in the year, and the mobile version at present seems limited to selected locations. In Europe it seems to be a no-go, while folks in Australia, New Zealand and the U.S. seem to be receiving the new stuff as part of this update. Anyone not getting it will just see a bug fix update for this latest version of Maps.
Has anyone put this to use so far on desktop Maps? How did you find it and are you happy to see it come to mobile? If you’re anywhere else seeing this not mentioned, be sure to let us know where you are in the comments!
