Google Maps has become a reckoning force in the world of mapping apps.
It has established supremacy over most other maps now and has been able to satisfy users with every possible mapping request they have.
A proof of its popularity can be confirmed by the fact that after it was taken down by Apple from iOS, user demands forced it to be added back to iTunes.
If iOS users give it such importance, there is no doubt that Android users will actually give it the maximum importance.
Of late, Google Maps has seen an update and the users have been actually overwhelmed with the kind of features they are now able to get.
From viewing maps of places, users will be able to see the particular details like prices of fuel in different fuel stations around the city.
It is not customary for a mapping app to provide you so much information; is Google on its way to make Google Maps a sort of a visual yellow pages service?
Asides, android users will be able to make use of the Google Map navigation features and be able to find alternate routes out of a heavily traffic congested route.
Options of being able to come up with public transport information and other relevant transit routes have long been supported and the new versions add more updates.
If you are a very new visitor to a place then leave it to Google Maps to deliver a perfect vacation trip plan to you.
If you are travelling on road, it will give you a correct idea of when the next gas station or the motel is coming up so you can take a pit stop and a break from constant driving.
Diners and other drive in cafes and shops will also be notified so your trip is more convenient.
If you are going to take the public transport around a smaller area, like a city or a town perhaps, then it will give you an idea of the public buildings and their operational timings.
Accordingly it will suggest you fastest options to get to a destination of your choice and also mention the distance from your current location.
These latest updates will of course, feature the normal Google earth integration and will allow the street view to come into play.
You can access all the new features by tapping on the magnifying glass icon and the drop down menu will be visible to show you the locations you have searched for most of the time.
The search function also lets you search for something new.
