FREMONT, CA: Bringing to halt the yearning of netizens worldwide, the much awaited feature of Google Maps is finally on hand.

This helps you plan your trip without having to split the navigation sessions.

Although the delay in bringing out this simple feature is unpredictable, but the new update adds 3D touch support for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus. While en route users can search and select destinations that come along the way, such as gas stations, restaurants, coffee shops and grocery stores. To add a stop, tap the magnifying glass option on the top-right corner of your screen and select from the list of options displayed. Users can also extend the search by entering their choices and selecting the preferred point.

The 3D touch support allows users to directly start navigating to their saved work or home destinations with a faint press of the app icon. The add-ons for 3D touch consist of options for marking and sharing location and searching nearby places. Debugging has been triggered with the latest updates of Google Maps and it is available for download from the app store.

Driver’s safety being of prime consideration, the feature comes with voice support that allows users to navigate without having to type. Furthermore it gives a quicker and easier access to navigation while driving. In addition the places plotted on the map will be rated accordingly and the estimated time during deviation will also be calculated and displayed.
