Save your parking locationGoogle has been working hard on fine-tuning a system that will try to accurately identify when you finished driving and remember where you parked car. Though it’s helpful but this feature is not entirely reliable. However, the latest version reduces the user’s effort of remembering the location of the parked car. This tool is easily accessible; you’ll have to simply tap on the blue dot that shows your current location. After tapping, the window opens with the command to save your parking location. As soon as you tap on it, it will immediately save your location and place it on the map. There is more to it. You can also store additional information such as parking level or lot/row numbers, set time limit. Time limit can be used in situations like metered street parking and time-limited spaces and informs you about time expiry and allows user to add photos. You can also switch off the notifications about the time limits in settings. There is also a share button if you wish to share your car’s location with others. This saved location can be seen in your notifications or at the top of the suggestions on the search screen in Google Maps. The only drawback of this feature is that you can only set one parking location at a time i.e. the app cannot save the location for longer period. For example, you parked your car at the airport, fly somewhere else and then keep track of your car. In the current scenario, this is not possible, but at some point, in future this drawback will be recovered.
Weather in mass transit navigationGoogle Maps is a multi-facetted tool and consists of every bit of information into screen, but the new update v9.49 provides you with an additional feature while you’re planning to travel. There is a limitation to this feature i.e. it only shows up while planning trips on mass transit, not with any of the other forms of conveyance and it shows weather only at your current location, not at the destination. As this feature is not available for all users you may not see it immediately.
Updated arrival screen on Android AutoThere is some good news for Android users also. There is a new arrival screen appearing for some. This change was first reported last week with 9.48, but again, it doesn’t seem to be live for everybody.
