Today Google added new features to Google Maps, which includes new offline features and ride service options.
Wi-Fi Only Mode
This is great for customers on limited data plans and travelers who want to avoid roaming charges. Now you can use Google Maps in Wi-Fi only mode. Right now, you can download a map for offline use. But what if you’re running out of storage?
SD Card Data Download
That’s right, now you can download maps to your SD card:
“Entry-level smartphones come with internal storage capacities as low as 4GB, while higher-end models range between 8GB and 32GB. For many of us, that’s not enough for all the videos, music, apps, and photos we cram onto our beloved smartphones. “
Finally, Google Maps adds new ride sharing options. Go-Jek and Grab covers Southeast Asia, and expansion of Gett, Hailo and MyTaxi for Ireland, Poland, Italy, Austria, Russia and Israel on Android and iOS.
