Yep, iPhone only.

Tho that was the same as the YouTube app, which is now iPad size too as of a week or two ago.

I'm sure Google are working on iPad for the next release.

Does the above link work for NZ iTunes store? Need to send a link to my dad who is currently travelling in the US.

If you do a search in the itune store on the iphone you will find it, as I found it fine on the ipad. It is very similar to the android google maps, which I think is better than the old version.

Yes works from NZ. Shame about not being ipad size. Guess it won't be long until that is sorted though.

If you do a google search for google maps for ipad, can find news links about this app release today and all of them I find say there is an iPad version out today, likely a separate app to the one above?

Android version is a bit more advanced. Eg, let's you download sections of maps to memory for offline use.
