Version 2.6 of Google Maps for iOS adds a new ability to notify users of a better route. Essentially while driving, if traffic conditions change, the user can be notified. The feature has been available on other navigation systems, such as Navigon and it can be pretty handy particularly on longer trips. Presumably before you would need to restart navigation to get an updated route.
Google Maps is becoming my go-to navigation app. I like the voice better and it just generally seems to work well. Navigon is full featured and doesn’t require me to have a data connection, which can be an issue at times. So I still like Navigon, but Google Maps is maturing into a nice product. Apple’s Maps are OK, but mostly I use it out of connivence with Siri.
