The trend of using Google Maps when going to unknown places is increasing. Although we use Google Maps for navigation on a daily basis, we may not know many ways to use it, which can make our maps easier to use.
Here are 10 settings you need to know about Google Maps
1. Review the navigation settings
The first way to use Google Maps effectively is to review the navigation settings on your phone. Sometimes Google Maps can give you the wrong navigation of the way you always walk.
This may be due to the fact that your phone’s navigation settings may have changed at times, rather than the problem with Google Maps. For example, you used Google Maps to get somewhere. But if you ignore it and leave ‘On’, the next time you use the map, Google will tell you the long route.
So it is necessary to review your navigation settings from time to time. Before you start your journey, go to the profile icon on Google Maps and go to Settings and click on the navigation button. Then you can go to the root option and manage the navigation settings as you wish.
2. Use incognito mode
Once you start using Google Maps, Maps will be able to search your location automatically later. May use your data. To avoid this, you can use Google Maps in incognito mode.
3. Pause location history
If you don’t want Google Maps to automatically follow your location history, you can pause it. To do this, go to the profile icon of the map and click on ‘Your Data in Map’ then go to Location History and click on On button.
This opens a page to control your Google Account activity. Then turn off the blue icon on the side of Location History. This stops your location history and deletes your old data
4. Download the map to use offline

There may not be as much matching data offline as there is online. But it can also save you from getting lost somewhere. To do this, go to Map’s profile icon and select Offline Map.
Then click on Set Your One Map and select the location you want to go with the blue mark that appears there. Once the map is selected, download it. You can use the map for up to 30 days from the day you download it.
5. Use multiple stop options

Go there and click on the ad stop icon. This way you can go to different places by going to different places.
