Google Maps updated to 5.11, features include reduced map storage size, ICS NFC support, UI tweaks

Google recently updated its Maps app to version 5.11, the updated version which is available now on the Android Market takes up less storage than before. Maps are available for specific screen resolutions so users with low resolution screen handsets no longer need to download maps that are optimized for a high-resolution display.

In addition, Google has introduced minor changes to some screen elements, the zoom buttons, have a slightly different appearance. They are now square, stacked vertically on the bottom right of the screen. I use Google Maps daily and didn’t notice the subtle changes. Thanks to those of you that noticed.

Google also changed the NFC permissions, reportedly to support the beaming feature in the upcoming release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
