Google Maps 3.0 Update Adds Lane Assistance and More

by Shane McGlaun

I go to the same places roughly every month and you would think I would memorize the routes. It’s usually very early in the morning when I am driving and I can’t see landmarks, so I rely on Google Maps navigation to clue me in. Each time I go, I end up habitually in the wrong lane for one of the turns. A new update is now available for Google Maps that should end that problem.

The Google Maps 3.0 update is adding in Lane Assistance to tell you what lane you need to be in before your turn. That isn’t all the update is adding. It also brings the ability to save a map for offline use so you can access it with no data connection.

The app will also get the ability to browse places to eat, bars, and hotels along your route. Uber users with the Uber app installed will also be able to see how long a commute is if you walk and how long it is with a ride from Uber. It also now integrates schedules for buses and trains into its public transportation directions.

All of these improvements are available now in both the Android and iOS versions of Google Maps.
