So now dump that You-are-here map standing lonely at the airport & grab your Android to get to the luggage area in time!

The familiar blue dot shows your approximate location when indoors & the Maps show the floor plan. As soon as you move up or down a level in a multistory building, the interface will automatically update to display which floor you’re on.
