The days of choosing Point A to Point B and then from Point B to Point C navigation are over. Google Maps for iOS just announced an update, bringing the multi-stop support. The update is aimed at making your road-trip plans easier.
The multi-stop support has been on Android since last month and now Google has added this useful feature, the ability to add multiple stops to a single trip, to its Google Maps app for iOS. The introduction of multi-stop feature lets you enter every stop you want to add in your trip. Moreover, the app will automatically display you the entire route.
Here’s how the new Google Maps for iOS update works:
Just launch the app, enter your first destination and tap the corner menu. This will give you an option to add additional stops. You can even drag and drop the stops in order to rearrange them into a logical tour order as you go. Once you have added all your stops, hit ‘Done’ and your multi-stop way is complete. Google said,
“When you enter navigation mode you’ll have the same seamless driving experience you’re used to. Whether you’re going from errand to errand or hitting scenic spots along Route 66.”
Besides the Multi-stop support, Google Maps on Android also features timeline tool. It’s still not confirmed when this feature will be coming to the iOS platform.
Timeless tool allows you to check your location history in a timeline format. Using the feature, you can see where you used up your time on a particular day, month or year. The amazing thing about the feature is that you can visualize your entire route. The feature enables you to have an eye on where you have been in the last couple of days/months. In addition, if your use Google Photos, the Timeline tool will allow you to view photos that you clicked on a given day.
Coming to Multi-stop feature, it may not be rolling out immediately to iOS devices. The feature might take several more days for the update to show up on your iOS device. You can download the latest version of Google Maps for iOS from the Apple App Store. However, the update hasn’t reached the App Store yet.
