Google Maps 2.0 with offline caching

Google has just released version 2 of their Map app for iPhone and iPad.
The new version brings a whole host of new features including:
• New iPad Design
• Live traffic updates
• A new rating system for places
• Indoor maps
But the most interesting feature is that Google Maps now has a feature to cache locally the area of the map you are viewing.
To access this feature is slightly cryptic.
1. First show the area of the map you wish to cache.
2. Then in the search bar type ‘ok maps’

Maps will then download and cache the map area you are viewing.
