Another fun and interesting feature has hit Google Map which let’s users to easily swap the vehicle icons. The Google Maps new feature that lets users to swap the vehicle icons while they use the driving navigation feature to reach their destination.
The feature was announced in a tweet by Munish Dabas, a User Experience (UX) Engineer with the Google Maps team. The new feature, however, is only available to Maps users on iOS for now, and not Android or desktops.
To use it, you just need to start the navigation and tap once on the blue-coloured navigation arrow. This will present to you three options: a red sedan, a green pickup truck, and a yellow minivan.
Tap on any of the three and it will replace the navigation arrow and become your virtual partner on your journey. The icon will remain the same in future navigations too till you pick another car or the good ol’ arrow.
This feature is quite little than expected but it is a nice way for Google Maps users to make their trips a little more fun.
