Google, as we all know, is likely the most popularly used search engine in the world, Google records billions of daily users and thus far, Google has provided quality service to its users. Google map is a navigation app that provides direction and in-depth (detailed) map view of different locations to help you arrive your destination with ease, this navigation is made possible and easy through the GPS (global positioning system).

Google map offers advanced features like measuring distances and letting you know how long it will take to arrive your destination, getting traffic information of your route, verbal instructional guide (very useful when driving), location sharing/editing and a lot more.

The street view on google map is an additional feature, this modified feature aids in getting a better view of an area, more like a 360 degrees’ view.

This helps for better navigation, in cases of not being familiar with an area or trying to get your current location and getting to your destination even without a human direction. This feature, being able to provide detailed street information and a clear view has made google map very interesting and useful. I once found myself in a situation where I desperately needed directions to arrive at my destination in time to meet up a deadline, I was discombobulated while trying to recall the route knowing that I was quite close to my destination, I immediately turned on my google map, turned my mobile phone sideways for better view and I navigated through the map and located my destination whilst I redirected speedily to my destination.
