    I believe the reason for this is the cache being filled up with places you've been.

    I haven't installed the newest update. Still at 5.8.0. App itself is 10.42M. Seems like it stayed about same size, for this update anyway.

    Can't really say. All I know is it gets better with every update. I am currently at around 11.2 MB. No big deal though since I've got a tone of space on my phone anyway.

    If you have space problems you can use Titanium to convert Maps into a user app, then you can move it to sd storage. For this your phone has to be rooted.
