10 Things Google Maps Can Do For You
Google Maps has been around for a while, but too many people are unaware of the full extent of the services that the service can afford. Today, we are going to look at 10 things that you can do with Google Maps.
Or more specifically, here are the 10 things that Google Maps can do for you:
- Get transportation directions
- Creating a map
- Measuring distance and ETA
- Mixing maps information
- Finding your location
- Setting routes
- Getting traffic information
- Verbal instructions
- Location sharing
- Location editing
Google Maps is really good at providing you with directions on which transportation method is available in any place as well as the details that come with those methods. If you want to know where you can catch a bus or something, you can find that information.
If your location is particularly obscure, you might have trouble finding a coherent diagram that offers accurate directions. In such instances, just make your own.
Distance And Estimated Time Of Arrival
When using the Maps feature, just clicking on a particular point allows you to know just how far it is to your current location and how long it takes to get there. This will help you plan your travels and organize your schedule.
Mixing Maps Info
For this part, you’re going to need some technical know-how. You can basically add some more details to the map if you know how. You can add things like celebrity sightings, special occasions and so on.
Finding Your Location
Just in case you are travelling somewhere new and you don’t know where you are exactly, you can find out your exact location. It’s great for not getting lost.
If you have a particular route in mind, you can set that and just follow the directions. Customizability provides you with convenience.
Getting caught in a traffic jam sucks. Fortunately, Google Maps can tell you which places are congested during what time of day.
In case you didn’t know already, you can just tell Google Maps about the place you want to go instead of typing it. It’s great for when you’re driving.
Feel the need to hook up with your friends? Share your location.
Google Maps isn’t perfect. If you find that certain location details are wrong, you can go ahead and edit that if you like.
