Google Maps 8.1.0 update brings terrain view

Google has updated their Maps app bringing the version number to 8.1.0 from the previous 8.0.0 having already updated their camera app to version 2.2.

With the update comes terrain view which will display 3D elevation of various geographic features such as mountains, making it extremely useful for hiker or cyclists to determine a route elevation directly on the Maps mobile application.

The Google Maps update is steadily rolling out to various countries in the Google Play Store so if you haven’t got the update yet then check back soon as you may not have been involved in the initial wave.
