In the past, people who wanted to reach an unknown destination often faced a few troubles when they tried to find the way. That changed thanks to the first GPS devices. Now, navigation apps are most common. Google Maps, for its part, remains the most famous such application. Google Maps 10.23.3 rolled out with improvements and bug fixes.
Google Maps Changed The Game
Back in the days, physical maps were helpful but if you didn’t know how to read them or bought one which was outdated a few hours were lost on trying to decide which path is the best one.
The first GPS solutions for cars alleviated some of these issues, but they were far from being great. Users had to purchase new map packs each year, and when the model was discontinued, there was no choice besides upgrading to a new model.
As smartphones started to become popular developers harnessed the built-in GPS features and create navigation apps. The most popular one is Google Maps, which offers a large number of features while also being completely free. It runs on a large selection of devices, and there is no need to worry about compatibility. Read below to learn more about the app and its excellent features.
