Google Maps gets new lane guidance functionality

Turn-by-turn navigation has been a go-to feature for many users as our smartphones have increasingly morphed into the ultimate convergence device. Navigation solutions have become so advanced that many people forgo springing for expensive in-car navigations options and instead rely on their smartphones.
 
Google today is providing some welcome improvements to its Maps app for road warriors that depend on the service. The first of which is new lane guidance functionality that shows you which lane to stay in before making an upcoming turn. This should help cut down on lane jockeying as you approach your next waypoint.

Google has also made it easier to save maps for offline use. You can simply search for an area using Maps and hit “Save Map to use offline” to have it available offline. You can also give the destination its own nickname to make it easier to retrieve at a later time.


Streamlined interface to save offline maps
 
Other new features include improved filters for finding restaurants, businesses, and hotels; improved integration with Uber; expanded public transit information; and the ability to see saved places across all of your devices (as long as you’re signed in).
 
The updated Maps app for iOS and Android will be available later today.
