Google Maps customers on iOS are now allowed to add stops next to their routes, offering a easier experience for any user that has to travel for a longer time. The function resolves a minor but undesirable problem that customers face: the necessity to modify their routes each time they have to add stops or other detours.
Typically, the factors that cause these changes are bathroom stops and meal breaks. It was released on Android operating systems in Oct 2015, so it took some time to be rolled out for iOS too. Nevertheless, it is great news for Apple users to find out that the feature is now available on their gadgets.
iPhone 6s users who have set up the application should definitely ensure that the newest edition is up there too. Google included 3D Touch functions to its service, which allows them to easily get indications to home and work with a longer press on its symbol.
Beginning this week, the function will be released for the vast iOS ecosystem as well, for all countries where Google provides navigation options, over than 100 globally. So regardless of where the users are from, where they are and whether they utilize the Android or iOS platform, making pit stops is now a piece of cake, as Google Maps’ reps declared.
This is understood, but it seems this is an element that should have arrived with Google Maps in the first place. In fact, Apple Maps Charts does not even have a similar feature to provide to its numerous customers.
To maximize its advantages, people can simply tap on its magnifier key placed in the upper area of the app, while using the navigation mode. This application will then offer a selection that includes locations that it considers that it will help tourists, such as gas stations, dining places, food markets and fast food locations.
Of course, customers can find specific locations as well through speech control or guide text feedback via the app’s search option. In an attempt to help all users to have a secure and pleasant journey, Google Maps would also summarize information of these stops, from a location’s ranking to the approximated period that a new detour might add to their entire trip.
The upgrade for Google Maps’ version for the iOS platform is already running and is offered on Apple’s App Store. It is also worth noting that the Search engine has also launched off-line routing for iOS’ edition of its Google Maps.
