Google has updated maps of a number of countries in Europe, Africa and Asia, making them more detailed and accurate.

 
The maps for Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lesotho, Macau, Portugal, San Marino, Singapore and Vatican City have all been revamped.
 
The updates add new coverage of previously unmapped terrain, such as the National Heritage Areas of Ireland, provide more detailed coastlines and bodies of water, and have more accurate names for major points of interest.
 
 
Ferry routes are also more clearly labelled than before, and Google Maps will estimate a ferry time  based on its timetables if users try planning a route for their journey. Local roads are more easily distinguished from highways, and multi-lingual names are now available for many of these roads.
 
Google Maps for Android is also getting an update, with the maps for the 11 countries previously listed, in addition to Egypt, Poland and Ukraine, now available offline.
