Google Maps For India Updated To Allow For Pit Stops & Detours In Navigation Mode

Google Maps in India for Android has been updated and it now enables you to search for and add an extra stop to your route, without having to exit navigation mode in Google Maps. This ensures quicker pit stops and fewer long detours as users can search for places like gas stations, restaurants, grocery stores and more along their route on Google Maps. Google Maps will also show you how long a stop will add to your trip while keeping you on your route.


When you’re driving in navigation mode and you suddenly get a call from your partner to pick up some groceries on your drive home, or if you’re on a road trip and you suddenly decide to find a great restaurant option along your route, simply tap the magnifying glass at the top right corner of the screen. You’ll see a drop-down menu with helpful options, like petrol pumps, grocery stores, and restaurants. If the drop-down options aren’t what you need, you can now even add a detour to your favorite coffee shop by tapping the search icon or by using voice commands. So whether you’re low on fuel, need cash and looking for the closest ATM, or just want to grab a coffee before your next appointment, this new feature from Google Maps will make your pit-stop easier.

“Google Maps has enabled travelers to navigate with greater ease, safety and convenience for years now. This new update will ensure that they can make a sudden or anticipated pit-stop and detours without having to exit navigation mode. They can also add these to their routes for subsequent use if required, thereby easing the navigation process and also saving time,” said Suren Ruhela, Director, Google Maps.
