Last year, Google I / O reviewed Google's new Google Maps navigation system, which uses AR to direct you to locations. The company first talked about new experiences in 2018. May. And finally he started checking the system with real users, starting with a small group of local executives.
The new navigation system uses your camera to guide you through additional reality. WSJ has reviewed the new experience and, according to the publication, you can simply open Maps, click on the Start AR button, and Google Maps will help you use the new system. First, the system asks you to move your phone so that it can pinpoint where you are and then give directions. You can just hold the phone and Google Maps will give you the real directions in the real world, and the idea is really tough.
But, of course, walking on the phone is not the safest idea. And that's why this new experience warns you to put the phone down and just check the directions for moments. The idea is that you just put your phone when you need to see which turn to take, and then put your phone down until you get to the next step. In this way, this feature also helps to save the battery of the phone by simply switching to the normal map interface when the phone is switched on.
Google's new AR-managed navigation will be a really important step forward in the navigation field after the feature is actually launched for everyone. While Google Maps and other navigation applications make it incredibly easy to reach somewhere, it's still incredibly difficult to know exactly where you're going, especially in new cities. And this new AR drive navigation looks really promising to address this issue
