I realize this is 8 months old. But you do this by tapping the x. On my iPad Mini it's at the bottom left.

I just found it! On the map there is a little compass needle pointing north. Just tap this needle and it will switch modes.

Previously Google Maps on my iPad mini showed the blue arrow at the bottom and rotated the map so my view was always as the map showed. Now the blue arrow is in the middle and the map is oriented north-south always. How can I switch it back?
