Next time you’re in that long line to pick up your rental car, you’ll only need to launch Maps to find your reservation details.

It’s one of the key features in the Maps version 9.10 update for Android. Rental car information was one of the final missing pieces in a recently-added feature that put your travel itinerary inside Maps.

The other major tweak is a reorganization of any photos you’ve uploaded to Maps. The Your places section now puts it at the top of your profile. Any pictures you’ve published now appear in a larger format that looks a lot like otos.

The Your places screen has a prominent section to host any photos you upload to Maps.

The app update is making the usual rollout through the ay Store. There are two downloads in A Mirror – one for devices running Android 4.3 above, with another for anyone on Android 4.1.

The story behind the story: Maps continues to morph into a destination local city guide. has added local reviews, changes to photo uploads, tricks to save your favorite places. The goal is that Maps is something you’ll turn to for more than just direction since the app can serve up places to eat, coffee shops, your travel itinerary.
