The Windows 10 Mobile “Redstone” update (build 14291) has recently been made available to more devices on the Insider Preview programs, bringing with it the new updated Maps app giving users some improvements to the interface, which we are going to take a look at and see how it compares to the version (4.16) that came with Windows 10 Mobile build 10586. Below are some screen shots, in each case the older version of Maps in on the left, with the new update on the right.

Faster to access and makes better use of the available screen real estate.
