Google Maps has received an update that will be most welcome by those who use the app to get around. The app for iOS and Android devices now offers lane assistance so the driver knows what lane they need to be in to make their upcoming turn.

The app also gets the ability to save a map to use offline so you won't need a connection to a data network to use the Google Maps app. All you need to do is select the "Save map to use offline" option and use a name for your map. To get to your saved maps login, tap the profile icon, and then find the name you saved the map as.

 

Filters have also been added that help you find restaurants, bars, hotels, and more with ratings and prices. Uber users can compare the ride time with transit and walking directions. The app will tell you how long it takes to walk there and how long it takes if you hail an Uber ride. Train schedules are included as well.
