Getting around using your smartphone is a smart and effective way to travel. Both Android and iPhone users can access pre-installed map apps that will help navigate the best route anywhere you need to go.
Google Maps comes pre-installed on Android smartphones, and can be downloaded for use on an iPhone. It has many handy new features to try. When driving, you can get real time traffic information, as well as a recommendation for the best route to take and travel time estimates. You can even use this feature for walking routes, or to see current public transit schedules. Once you’ve arrived at your destination, you can tap the “More” button, then “Parking” to locate nearby parking spots. You can even pin the location you park at to make it easy to find later on.
You can also keep your companions posted on your whereabouts and expected arrival time. Tap the pin on the map showing your location, then click on “Share” to send a text or email message letting them know where you’re at.
iPhone users will enjoy the convenience of the new features in the pre-installed Apple Maps. These include significant additions to live data information, so you can now use the feature in many locations to find public transit maps, as well as indoor maps for area shopping malls so you can conveniently find the store you’re looking for, as well as restaurants, ATM’s and other specific locations. To take advantage of the very latest features of Apple Maps, simply make sure you’ve upgraded to the latest iOS12 software.
Make yourself familiar with all the wonderful conveniences included with your smartphone’s mapping apps. It’s truly the modern way to travel!
