In order to entice users to use Google Maps as a navigation application, the technology giant has introduced new features, making it more complete for those driving. Like Waze, the navigation app, which is also owned by Google, Maps will notify drivers of the top speed on the road where it is traveling. In addition, you will receive speed camera notifications as well as portable versions of the limiters.
The update has reached 40 countries worldwide, including Portugal, Brazil, Spain, United States, United Kingdom, Russia, Mexico, India, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands and others.
When you purchased Waze in 2013, Google kept Maps more focused on guiding people to discover locations, leaving more specific driving features to your navigation app. But in recent years, the company has tested new functions on Maps, including highlighting crash sites, road problems and speed cameras. These new features definitely integrate the new update of Google Maps in Android and iOS versions.
Users of the Android version of Maps can report fixed and mobile radars, but both versions of the app receive updates while driving, reports TechCrunch.
