Can a person travel without map? The answer is very simple and it is no. During past, when the advancement in the technology was not too high, people used to carry a printed map with them if they are going for trip or to any new location. Now the headache for manual searching for any area in the printed maps have been erased with the advancement of technology. And the best credit goes to the app of Google maps.
Google maps was launched in the year of 2005, helping people to find directions and from that date many upgrades were made in Google maps. Once again a new release has been found for the android operating system, in Google maps with lots of mind blowing features that will help people to guide themselves anywhere in the world.
Features for the new release
According to Google, two main updates will be seen in the Google maps app. They are:
- Adding detours for navigation and,
- Detecting nearest fuel station.
If any one is traveling, then the app will automatically display all the gas station along the path with the price and grade for the fuel too. This feature is very helpful as during a detour, it is very important to keep in mind about the fuel consumption and also about the nearest available gas station. There had been many bases seen where people get trapped in a bad condition during their journey due to low fuel availability and also having no information regarding the nearest fuel station.
Added to this, users can also pull down some more features from the top right hand side of the app. In these, they can view about the coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores and many more. Apart from this, users can also operate the app by searching any specific location or place or can give voice commands too for any kind of search.
This update for Google maps app, is going to come in the earlier weeks of November and people can keep very high expectations from it. It will help users a lot. But the only thing is the availability of this app is limited only to Android operating system. For the android users, they will enjoy a lot in their trips and journeys with this app.
