Google Maps - Navigation & Transport

How can I remember all I want to see?


Google Maps makes navigating your world faster and easier. Find the best places in town and the information that you need to get there.

Get there faster with real-time updates
• Beat traffic with real-time ETAs and traffic conditions
• Catch your bus, train or car-share with real-time transport info
• Save time with automatic re-routing based on live traffic, incidents and road closures
• Don't miss a turn or exit with lane guidance
• Find pit stops along your route like petrol stations and coffee spots

Discover places and explore like a local
• Find top-rated restaurants and local businesses, wherever you are
• Decide on the best places to go with reviews, ratings and pictures of foods and interiors
• Plan your visit and see menus, make reservations and find when places are typically busiest
• Help others discover the best places by sharing reviews, photos and more
• Save places that you want to or often visit, and quickly find them later from any computer or device

Experience the Google Maps difference
• Offline maps to search and navigate without an Internet connection
• Street View and indoor imagery for restaurants, shops, museums and more
• Indoor maps to quickly find your way inside big places like airports, shopping centres and stadiums
• Comprehensive, accurate maps in 220 countries and territories
• Transport schedules and maps for over 15,000 cities
• Detailed business information on over 100 million places

* Some features not available in all countries
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

This is an App which I have only used rarely whilst I was living in Phuket. The phone always gave me the choice to use a particular map and I think that I always chose 'Maps'.

Then on moving to Bangkok there were so many places that I wanted to visit and I found that you could make a list of all the places that you wanted to go - so you would not forget.

There was also the added bonus of using google on my blog by starring all the places and they were all there as well. I haven't started really using it yet - oh and it can tell you how far away places are from where you are and how to get there...
