Google Maps For Android Showing Pit Stops En Route

Getting from A to B has always been an everyday thing, from the front door of your home to school or work and sometimes it goes a little further, say across the country? For those times, and some shorter journeys too, people have used navigation software like that found on your sat nav’s and even on your smartphones. Google has been keen on making their navigation software both practical and useful by adding features such as alternative routes and traffic warnings, now you may find that a quick stop for lunch is even easier with an upcoming update to the Android app.

Available in an upcoming release for the American version of the android app, by selecting “search along route” people are able to track down gas, restaurants, coffee shops and grocery stores, while the ability to also “search for more places” means that you are not limited to these choices and could soon find your favourite restaurant to stop for a quick bite while on that little drive.

With all these features and an added bonus of being able to see the closing times of gas stations, users could soon find their Google maps being a little more useful in the near future. Hopefully, their European version of this update will be released soon, giving us just another reason to take that long holiday we’ve been asking for.
