Google has just pushed a pretty nice update to the Android market for Google Maps. Version 5.9 has added a few useful features. Firstly, you’ll be able to set up custom notifications for transit navigation in cities that support it. Secondly, that transit support has finally made its way to the tablet version of the app (you know, because people actually do carry tablets now). Finally, bubble buttons has returned after disappearing for a short period. When a map result pops up, you can call or navigate directly from that popup instead of having to go to the full Place page. A convenience feature, but a handy one. Go on and grab 5.9 in the Android market. [Source]
