Google has updated its Google Maps Navigation, and the latest version is designed to do more than just get you from point A to B, as it is designed to help you avoid traffic on your journey.
The latest version of Google Maps Navigation, now uses real time traffic data to make sure you take the quickest route on your journey, and it works in the navigation app within Google Maps.
Ever been stuck in traffic, only to find out you’d have been better off going a bit out of your way to take a less congested route? If you’re like me, you probably hear the traffic report telling you what you already know: traffic is bad on the road you’re currently on, and you should have taken another. It doesn’t need to be this way, and we want to help. So we’re happy to announce that Google Maps Navigation (Beta) will now automatically route you around traffic. With more than 35 million miles driven by Navigation users every day, this should add up to quite a bit of time saved!
This new feature is now available for Google Maps Navigation in North America and Europe, and you can find out full details over at the Google Mobile Blog.
