Google Maps for iOS gets major update including offline navigation

Google has updated their Maps for iOS app, adding a plethora of new, significant features.
The updated app adds offline navigation, adds real-time gas prices when you search for gas stations and also adds what times are popular for millions of business and locations.

Google's changelog says the app now allows you to "See popular times at more than a million places around the world" and "See up-to-date gas prices when searching for gas stations in the US and Canada," and soon you'll be able to download a map "and the next time there's no connectivity -- whether it's a country road or an underground parking garage -- Google Maps will continue to work seamlessly."

Android received the updates last month and now iPhone and iPad users can get in on the action.
