Google Maps For iPhone IconPerfect timing, I am headed to Israel soon and I can get my Google Maps for iPhone fix in the native languages there. I can get it in Hebrew or Arabic, I can read Hebrew but not Arabic - but I'd prefer English anyway.

Google announced the update on Google+ saying, “!שלום!“ & ”مرحبا”

With the latest update to #GoogleMaps for iPhone, we’re expanding the international version of the app to Arabic and Hebrew, including voice guidance in navigation where available.

When in doubt in any language, access Tips and Tricks from the side menu to use #GoogleMaps like a pro.

The preferred mobile mapping app in Israel is Waze, which Google acquired. I suspect a lot of this support came from that team and I wonder if the directions are as good as Waze now? Israeli's let me know.

Other features include faster access to navigation, complete with route and traffic overview and a new tips and tricks available in the side menu. Oh, and a bunch of bug fixes.
