Update 15 August

Google Maps is rolling out version 7.1.0 with some new features/fixes. Read about the changes here.

THERE ARE DIFFERENT VERSIONS DEPENDING ON WHAT VERSION OF ANDROID YOU ARE RUNNING, CHOOSE CORRECTLY. SEE BELOW FOR OLDER VERSIONS

Google Maps v7.1.0 for Android 4.3
GoogleMaps_v7.1.0-701000823.apk

Google Maps v7.1.0 for Android 4.0.3+
GoogleMaps_v7.1.0-701000803.apk



New in Version 7.0:
- Refreshed UI, new splash screen
- Slide-out settings menu to match other Google apps
- Offline maps are now saved by saying/typing "OK Maps" when you have the area in view (see here and here)
- "Directions" widget/homescreen shortcut options (see here)
- "Shake to send feedback" feature (kinda useless, screenshot below)

Missing features:
- My Maps
- Labs (on-screen buttons, scale bar, etc)
- No more Latitude (good riddance)

Apparently, you have to type or say " OK Maps" in the search bar to view offline maps.

OP- the download worked for me. Thank you.

I had to uninstall this update. Its missing my maps functions. I use my PC to route my 16-20 stops and save my map. Then I use my maps to navigate the city. With Google! It makes it almost unusable for me. Or did I miss something? I looked in all the menus and didn't find.

From the blog post:

"My Maps functionality is not supported in this release but will return to future versions of the app."

I'd post the link, but haven't had enough posts yet.

Yea I was disappointed at first when I found the same problem, but this seems to be the answer to this for the time-being. It doesn't allow as wide a view when caching, it seems I can just barely get all of NYC into one screen anymore without being told to zoom in.
