Google Maps : Mobile App

Google Maps really good app and easy to use. I have it open on my Android phone almost constantly while looking for people/addresses, food “near me”, etc. Great job, Google! I install it and uninstall it (back/forth) on my Android Tablet (depends on how much memory and space I need or have free). 

Excellent directions, accurate, and easy to use! I would request to please add the option of having more than address to map as a destination. I notice the desktop app allows more than one destination. 

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
