    Maps app for Windows 10 Insiders updated


    Maps app for Windows 10 Insiders updated with reliability and performance improvements
    For most people, itís not that often that we need to open up our GPS app and get our bearings. When the need does arise, however, itís important that the app is tuned up to be as functional as possible. To that end, the Maps app for Windows 10 has been given a huge update, adding in a few new features and fixing several bugs. Hereís the full change log:
    ◾Ability to manually save your location when GPS isnít available, which can now be used by Windows and other apps and services that you allow
    ◾Reliability, accessibility, and performance improvements
    ◾New airport venue maps. Youíll see a purple layout on places that have it and tapping on it will show you the indoor map for that airport. You can also switch between multiple floors.
    ◾Fixed remaining issues with voice instructions, all languages supported should now be speaking instructions
    ◾Fixed several bugs that were leaving guided directions in weird states (arrows disappeared or it stopped tracking your location)
    ◾Fixed issue with Street Side becoming unresponsive when you were dragging the mouse outside the app window.
    ◾Reliability, accessibility, and performance improvements

    The Maps app will be very hand this summer. When I go crusin on my cycle I can leave my Garmin home and just use the Maps app on my phone if I get lost.

    I had 50+ phone and store updates when I upgraded my phone..
    the Maps App I have installed at the moment, is Version 5. 1603.890.0

    - is this the latest version?
