Google Maps

This app is one of the world’s most popular apps coming in at over 1 Billion active users per month. Chances are if you’re reading this, you already have it. But do you use it on every ride and get the most out of Google Maps?

Not only can you use it for knowing where to go and how to get there. You can use it to get a ton of pre-trip and post-trip information. Besides, you can also use it to get important information during your trip. Below we have listed some of Google Maps’ key features and what you can use them for on your next ride, far or near.

What’re the Best Features of the App?

  • Google Assistant – Need to find the next gas station without pulling over to look at your phone? This feature can be used with applicable Bluetooth devices to change or find destinations on-the-go using Google Assistant.
  • Google Timeline – Want to see how many miles you’ve racked up this week? Month? Year? Easy! In Google maps, click on the top-left menu and click “Timeline”. This will tell you where and when your trip was, which can be super handy if you’re one of those “let’s ride to get lost riders” and want to replicate that same ride.
