GPS Android: Google Maps Navigation

We started a new special in Xataka Android, this time we’ll look at the GPS navigators most popular are available for Android taking advantage of this time of the year where you take more car and more such applications need. To start the special Let’s start by the GPS Navigator by default in Android: Google Maps Navigation.

Google Maps Navigation come integrated in Google Maps it makes it practically in the official Android browser, since there is practically no Android device that not Google Maps. Google browser is currently in a State of Beta and periodically receives any significant improvement.

Google Maps Navigation, the Navigator in the cloud

Google Maps Navigation benefits the entire ecosystem of Google Maps, the points of interest of businesses with their chips and scores as Google Latitude to locate the location of our friends. This makes Google Maps Navigation the most complete GPS where it is very difficult that you not arrive at your destination, that Yes, as long as you have connection to the Internet.

To use it We need to be connected to the Internet, Since maps are in the cloud, and although we download them we need that at least for the first calculation of the route are connected, then we can already be disconnected since there will be downloaded the entire route and streets of the around if we lose.

To start the navigation can do it in two ways: from the icon Navigation that I have in the application launcher where already so you only have to enter the destination either by voice, keyboard, address of a contact or a prominent site. Or we can start browsing from Google Maps pressing in “ signs ” and then the icon of Navigation, which starts the way GPS navigation.

Routes by car, to foot or public transport

Aside from defining the target also have to choose in which means of transport we will go. Google Maps Navigation It can be used for routes to foot, by car or by public transport. The browser will guide the user step by step using the Android voice synthesizer reading us also the names of streets and signs to try to facilitate navigation.

In the car routes We have the typical option to ignore motorways and tolls, the option to view the step-by-step path through text and to obtain alternative routes, since when calculating the routes it takes into account the State of the traffic, so it is possible that not the shortest path we want always.

When we started the Navigation view will always show us the name of the street in which we, the current indication and the next to pre-empt events. If the street where we are is in Street View will allow us to view it to see better indication or to check that if we are on the right road. We can also choose the satellite layer and activate points of interest such as banks or gas stations.

The navigation through the path to footer It is the most easy and simple. Being a foot because we can access in any direction to the streets and as that car routes can get alternate routes if we want to avoid any street or neighborhood.

With the latest update to Google Maps added navigation in public transport where we will see that stop we are going and what we have left to get. If we are looking at another application you will get a notice in the area of notifications that we have to get off at the next stop. By now the navigation in the only public transport is available in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Asturias.

Conclusions

We have a good GPS Navigator and very thanks full to Google Maps. It has far superior to other browsers options as the view of traffic, Street View or the navigation in public transport. Their big problem is that it depends on the data connection with it is not a good alternative for use in travel to drive in other countries, not to be having rate flat outside Spain. Also be made in lack power option avoid passing certain street or stretch when we have a street cut, and that the main screen shows us our speed and time which we are going to reach the destination.
