  • Google Plans to Update Google Maps With Improved Alerts for Traffic


    Google has announced some useful new navigation features for its Google Maps mapping service for mobile devices.

    Now when you come up to traffic jams, construction zones, and other blockades that will cause problems for you trying to get to your destination, Google Maps will give you a better idea of what lies ahead and how to deal with it, including showing you some back roads you can take to avoid the mess completely.

    Google Maps will also explain to you why a specific route is better than another and tell you information about how long delays are expected to be when you reach them.

While you’re on the road, Google Maps will give you a heads up if congestion lies ahead, and how long you’ll be stuck in a jam. You’ll also get the option to take alternate routes, including explanations for why one is recommended—whether it’s the fastest or avoids an incident.
    The update will be available before Memorial Day weekend.

      Memorial Day is a day on which those who died in active military service are remembered, landing on the last Monday of May. So in this case on or before May 25th.
