Google Maps Pit Stop Update

Google Maps Users, This Pit Stop Feature Is a Game Changer

Whether you're on a road trip or running an errand, sometimes you need to make a pit stop along the way to your destination. The newest update to Google Maps on iOS finally lets you add additional stops without removing you from navigation mode.

The update, which starts to roll out to users today, is simple to use. Just tap on the magnifying glass at the right-hand corner of Google Maps. A set of options will appear, like grocery stores and coffee shops. You can either choose these or tap the search button to write in exactly what you're looking for. You'll then see what you searched for appear on the map, along with ratings and just how long this detour will take. Then, tap "add stop" and your route should update. An example of how this works is below.

Already available on Android since October, this new iOS feature should help you out immensely. And if you're traveling with multiple people to the same place, you can always share your location with them.
