The newest version of Google Maps was an invite only affair until yesterday. Now anyone can opt-in to get the new map experience.

If you haven’t seen what this latest version looks like and does here is the video from May that Google put together.

And for you iOS users out there 9 to 5 Mac reports

In line with last week’s expectations of an updated Google Maps app, Google has begun rolling out version 2.0 of Google Maps for iOS today. Most notably, the new application includes support for the large touch screens found on the iPad and iPad mini.

Of course, not everyone in the comments section of this post is happy (shocker!) as the update requires iOS 6. You can read more about it here at the Google Lat Long blog.

Oh well. It’s an imperfect tech world. So imperfect that even Apple customers can have trouble. Who woulda thunk?

    I really need to get one of those dashboard holders for my iphone. My old GPS simply isn’t doing the trick anymore. But if I’m using my Google Map does that mean I can’t listen to my iPhone iTunes music at the same time?
