I like the new interface. Ties in well with the Google Now traffic/commute card. Also seems smoother/quicker than the previous version. I see why Google made such a big deal about it at I/O.

Edit: Looks like the Navigation UI was updated as well! Idk if it's placebo or what but it also seems like the transition between Maps and Nav is a lot quicker now as well (both opening and exiting Nav).

Now this is nice, very nice. Interface reorganization was a must from the old maps. I like the way it transitions to Navigation like it's seamless. Before it felt as though I was using Maps to find my route and let it open another app to navigate me. Now it feels more streamlined, liking it so far.

Thanks OP for upping this!
