Google Maps Features to Try

February 22, 2023

It is hard to imagine seeing anyone use a physical map these days. We can’t remember phone numbers (they are stored in our phone contacts) or how to read a map. We get to our destinations using directions from our vehicle GPS or a map app on our smartphones. Google Maps is one of the best navigation apps, whether you are an Android or iOS user. BGR has a post to get you familiar with controlling your privacy settings and making the most of the app.

  • Stop Google Maps from collecting Location History
  • Use Incognito mode for Google Maps searches
  • Download maps to use offline
  • Share your location in Google Maps
  • Set a reminder to leave on time
  • Add multiple stops to Google Maps
  • Save money while you’re driving

I’m sure you will find one of these items useful when using Google Maps.
