Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich. First off, the size of Google Maps will now be smaller or larger based on device screen resolution. Devices with qHD or Galaxy Nexus 1280 x 800 resolution displays will have a different, larger download to support the higher resolution on the display and older devices will see smaller download sizes and times.
TeleNav has been working hard to bring the most wanted and requested features to the popular navigation tool and this update will do just that. First available for WiMAX devices it will soon follow to other carriers and options as TeleNav comes pre-loaded with many popular smartphones available today.

Google Maps. As usual the update brings a few improves as well as the usual term "bug fixes". Google has been busy with Maps and is continuing to make it an awesome experience on mobile, we've seen a lot of updates lately all bringing great new features.
Google Maps for Android has been updated, tweaking the mapping appearance and adding the ability to add photos to places listings while mobile. Google Maps v5.1 introduces an "Add a photo" button next to the "Check in here" option in individual business listings, allowing you to choose from an existing picture or snap a new one with your phone's camera. Those uploaded images are then included in the gallery of shots stored for each listing. The change follows news of Google's acquisition of Zagat, the restaurant rating company, yesterday, which is expected to be integrated into the range of location-based services offered on Android handsets. For now, though, it's user-generated reviews that take center stage, with this new feature allowing you to show exactly what you ate and where you ate it, rather than describe it. You can update your Android phone to Google Maps v5.1 through the Android Market. [gallery]

GPS stop-by-stop public transit directions is a big feature and currently in beta, a great help for you city goers that use public transit daily. The feature I like but doesn't seem widely mentioned is the new download map area option under Google Labs.
