Google Maps 5.0 looks like a great upgrade, with offline maps and 3D. However, I can't find it in the market. The direct download link on Google does't work as well.

Do you know where I can download it directly?

  • Did you try appbrain.com or slideme.org?

  • @gary - not working. Since I already have maps installed, appbrains doesn't allow me to download it. I also can't uninstall maps.

  • So your google maps app doesn't show that an update is available? Are you sure it wasn't allowed to auto-update and you already have it? :P Out of curiosity what phone are you using?

You are probably not in the US, right? Seems that Google Maps 5.0 is not yet available in many countries (just like Google Reader for Android). Meanwhile, you can use a link to the .apk file here: http://thegadgets.net/technology-news/download-google-maps-5-0-apk/

Download the apk file, copy to the SD card, and open with e.g. Linda File Manager. Hope this helps.

  • Yeah, I'm in Israel. Thanks for the link, the new app looks amazing!
