Wow. Google Maps on iOS introduces a feature so poor it's making people go back to Apple Maps. Worse yet, the change wasn't in the release notes, leading to lots of frustration as users tried to find what was going wrong with their phone screens.

I use this service on my Android all the time with no dimming. Why would it be introduced anyway as who doesn't plug their phone in when using it for nav. Amazing that there is no feature disable flag. 
Yeah, Mike, that's the bit I don't get. Battery life on the iPhone when being used "flat out" like that is no worse than any other phone - and to introduce it with no option to turn off seems a bit daft.
