Google Maps - Your Portable Assistant for Directions & Transit Schedules

Map travel app, Google Maps, helps you navigate the streets of the world for free. Developed by Google, Google Maps takes the benefits of the website service and puts it in the palm of your hands. The app includes directions, public transport routes, and more. You can search for directions to local businesses, bars, and restaurants. Selecting a destination presents the option to receive directions based on your mode of transport. You can select from walking, biking, public transport, or vehicle. Through these options, you can then chose one or more directions. Estimated travel times also help you prepare estimated times to leave and arrive. Google Maps has schedules for public transport for over 15,000 cities around the world. Some places may also include indoor maps, such as airports, malls, and stadiums. This feature is still rolling out and may not be available in all countries. Google Maps became a separate app on iPhone with the release of iOS 6 in 2012. Up until then, Apple had been using Google Maps to power their built-in app. The switch from Google Maps to Apple's own in-house service caused several issues. The quality of the app and directions were often off, and some destinations, like airports and stadiums, were located elsewhere. As part of the service, Google Maps includes real-time updates along your route. Such updates can include traffic conditions, and lane guidance to make sure you have the right exit. It is with this that Google Maps is one of the most affordable GPS devices on the market.
