Over one billion people use Google Maps services every month. On the Google Maps app, these users are often searching for local businesses - from restaurants, to car dealerships, to dentists, and more. Recently, we launched a new version of the Google Maps app for Android, iPhone, and iPad where we introduced several new features. Today we're introducing an updated ad experience we think is more attractive for users and more effective for advertisers.

Yes, ads in Google's mobile Maps applications. Fantastic.

I despise ads in most cases. In agreement with a previous user, I'd much rather pay for an ad-free map app than to be smothered with ad-garbage regardless how "relevant" it is. The only way I'll have a better experience using Google Maps is if they leave the stupid ass ads out.
