Google Maps update may be more data friendly


Google Maps update may be more data friendly

Google Maps is to be updated in the near future, which should make the interface easier to read and use.

The new version of Maps uses colour coding to make it easier to pick out distinctive landmarks like hospitals and schools, as well as places where there is plenty to do. It also ditches certain design elements like outlines on roads to cut down on unnecessary elements.

Mobile users may also be pleased to hear that they’ll be able to set multiple destination routes, so you can plan out a road trip before you leave your house rather than having to add destinations at every stop.

It hasn’t been confirmed, but the updated Maps may be less reliant on a cellular connection. Maps will be viewable offline, though you’ll have to use a few bytes of data any time you want to check out your location.

You can see how Google Map’s hotspots feature works in the video below.
