Another week, another update for Google Maps on iOS.

Today’s update adds some useful features though. First up, you can now see maps in a full screen view by tapping on an empty space on the screen. Public transportation routes on the map are also now color-coded for better visual cues about your transport options.

If you’re picky about your food options, you can also now filter your searches to only include restaurants with Zagat ratings. And if you want to be quicker about looking up directions for them, the update lets you access voice commands by tapping on the mic or starting to type and then asking for “directions to.”

The update is available in the iOS App Store now.
