Google Maps Update – What’s Nearby You?
Google has added a new feature called â€œWhatâ€™s nearbyâ€ to the latest release of Google Maps (v3.3.0).Â The feature finds and displays a list of the ten nearest businesses or other places of interest to whatever address you specify on your map.
You can access the feature by long pressing on your map.Â Once the address loads, and the pop-up comes on the screen, press on the pop-up in order to bring up your map â€˜optionsâ€™.Â Within the options press on â€œWhatâ€™s nearbyâ€.Â Additionally, once you select one of the suggested locations it brings up all the traditional map options for your selection. (i.e. directions, navigation, phone number, street view, web URL, and available reviews)
This will be a handy travel companion for anyone who finds themselves in an unfamiliar area, or it could be used to find places you never knew existed in your own home town.Â Download and try out the new version of Google Maps today and let us know what you think of â€œWhatâ€™s nearbyâ€.
