Why Google Maps?

Google maps is probably the cleanest and at the same time bidding program for navigation and planning
of trails.

From measuring distance (see in this tutorial) and downloading Offline Maps (see here), we have a lot of options that we do not find in other applications.

Google Maps does not come with the user manual.

In general, Google applications do not come with user manuals or too detailed guides. We find online or forum information but how the world has no time, I thought to show you some simple tricks you can use on your vacation, or even on the everyday roads.

Google Maps Tips to Know Before the Holiday:

  • 1. Traveling without car navigation (the advantage of seeing traffic, roads, but getting rid of the background voice).
  • 2. Route planning “like a boos”, in one piece, in the smallest detail (with gas stations, stops and attractions on the road).

  • 6. Route personalization, an excellent option when you are not happy with the routes offered by Google Maps automatically.
  • 7. Redirect the route, it is useful when we want to get out of the way to get through other areas on our way.

    Do not forget about Roaming before traveling.

    And even if you forgot to activate roaming before you leave the country, do not despair, you still have a chance.

    If you do not have the net or go on unpaved roads, Google Maps is not the best solution.

    Go to an area where Google Maps and other apps are useless. Use the application, an application that also helps you on unmarked routes, and that works 100% offline.

      Howdy; very interesting articles
      What we saw in Google Maps, with a good phone and downloaded maps, the GPS goes well without a connection.

      Yes, but the only thing I do not like (and I'm convinced that many other users) are the cardinal-based indications. I think they have opted for this method because in the US the children are educated in those scouting courses, which is not happening to us.

    3. I also saw something else .. very interesting… for public transport for Brașov you can follow in real time the movement of buses that have implemented GPS afara apart from the electronic panels by tracking the estimated time of arrival of a bus at the station… .. on the phone you can actually track where the bus is and its real-time movement….
      Very strongly …… I suspect that in the other cities where the GPS system is implemented on buses it can be tracked in this way.

      Very good intentions but quick explanations, the prompt is not visible, the rapid shift from one image to another, so it is difficult to follow the explanations.
      It is like a conversation between the acquaintances and in no way addresses the beginners.
      Maybe I do not know who the tutorial is addressing.
      Sincerely, Vasile
