Google Maps Updates, Features: Google Maps have certainly made life easier since arriving in India! You hardly see anyone asking an address on the streets these days and the tech giant has been improving the experience by rolling out periodic updates. The latest Google Maps update would help you prevent street fines and penalities. The world's most trusted navigation software has enabled detecting speed trap cameras a couple of kms ahead in your route. Apart from this, Google Maps will also alert the users about any accident ahead with a red icon to make the user take another route.
The feature was already available in multiple countries and has now made its way to India. The app would allow users to mark speed cameras wherever they get to see one. It would later highlight them with a camera icon and will also show the number of people that have reported it.
The feature would allow the drivers to keep a check on their speed and also to reduce it to avoid any penalties. The feature has been rolled out for Android devices and will soon be made available for iOS users too.

With this latest update, the users can also report an accident after which the particular spot is highlighted in red and estimated time is shown to cross that spot. The update allows users to identify spots that have witnessed an accident and avoid them. Both these features have been added to ensure a safer journey for riders.
Google Maps can be used in India to book auto or cab rides, without switching to the main app. Maps is also supporting two-wheeler riders in the country, offering them a varied traffic status, allowing them to take narrower lanes to avoid getting stick in traffic jams.
