Stay within the speed limit by turning the on Speed Limits feature in Google Maps. Here are the steps to follow. The post How to Show Speed Limit on Google Maps appeared first on Technipages.
Google has been testing the dark mode for Google Maps since September 2019. However, it was available for a limited number of users. But now, as per 9To5Google, it is finally rolling out for Android users globally. Night mode or dark mode is one of the key features which Google has been adopting on all of its apps. The last major app waiting for dark…
To make it easier for viewers to understand the data, Google has also included color coding:
Grey: Less than 1 case
Yellow: 1 – 10 cases
Orange: 10 – 20 cases
Dark orange: 20 – 30 cases
Red: 30 – 40 cases
Dark red: 40+ cases
Thanks to a new color-mapping algorithm, Google is now able to offer a more vibrant map of an area when viewing at a global scale.
Google Maps keeps a detailed history of your movements, which might feel extremely creepy (like you have a robotic stalker), however, it happens regardless of whether you’re aware or not.
Not everyone is comfortable with Google keeping their information for this long, so here is how you can change the settings to limit how long this information is stored:
- Open Google Maps on iPhone or Android.
- Tap the menu bar on the top-left of the app.
- Choose “Your Timeline.”
- Tap the three dots on the top-right of the screen.
- Choose “Settings and privacy.”
- Select “Automatically delete location history.”
- Change the setting from “Keep until I delete manually” to “Keep for 18 months” or “Keep for 3 months.”
Some Google Maps users are being greeted by a new interface when they open the application. Gone are the now-familiar three bottom tabs with the side menu. Instead, the app has completely removed the menu and switched to five tabs, while lots of options migrated to the account picker pop-up. The benefit of this UI is faster access to your contributions as well as your saved places and lists.
Recently, the company introduced AR walking directions and detailed spoken walking directions for people with vision impairments. In the future, Google may be adding a new feature to help people find safer streets to walk at night.

I often drive the interstate in my area. This benefit being introduced by Google Maps will be of benefit when it comes to hazards and slowdowns. Speed Traps is not of my concern, due I typically set the cruise to stay within the means of the speed limit. I have found, as vehicles become more technologically advanced and safer, driver’s are taking more risks, such as exceeding the speed limit by at much as 15 to 20 mph….
This week, however, Google announced the next best thing: Starting immediately, drivers will be able to report hazards, slowdowns and speed traps right on Google Maps.

SOON, you will be able to share your real-time location from Google Maps on both Android and iOS. The people you share this with will be able to track your location on Android, iPhone, and on the web (from any computer). This may be useful in tracking the kids; letting others know where you are on that long vacation; tracking that lover of yours’ (LOL), etc… You can read more about this on the Google Maps Blog by clicking on the source link below.
Whenever you want to let someone know where you are, just open the side menu or tap the blue dot that represents where you are. Tap “Share location” and then select who to share with and how long to share—and you’re done! You can share your real-time location with your Google contacts, or even share with friends and family by sending a link on your favorite messenger apps. When you’re sharing your location, the people you’ve chosen to share with will see you on their map. And you’ll see an icon above the compass on your own map reminding you that you’re actively sharing your location. You can change your mind and stop sharing at any time—it’s entirely up to you.
