Getting your directions from Google Maps is one of the useful features and most of the time “used the most” while traveling. Google added a new feature which alerts you when your taxi goes off route. But not just this, Google added speedometer in Google Maps to alert you while driving at a higher speed than the set limit for the road.
Google Maps new feature called “Google off-route alert” is right now not available in all the countries. Google Maps sends you an alert when you ever sidetracked from the distance of about 500 meters. This feature is mainly for not tricked by the taxi driver when you are not familiar with the part of the city. But you can also use this while you are driving and you get off the road.
