Google Maps 5.0 -- that awesome version
Andy Rubin showed off a week or so ago

-- has been released to the Android Market. With the latest version of
Google Maps

, you get that very cool 3D tilt feature, plus vector graphics for less tiling (there's still some lag, but it's definitely better), compass mode, improved caching and offline navigation rerouting so that you can still find your way even if you lose your connection.

We'll have to check this out on as many phones as possible. There was talk about the 3D feature not working on the Nexus One, but it seems to be OK for us. Sound out in the comments if you see otherwise. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
