Internet Tip: Google Maps tips…

Internet Tips fans,

Google Maps keeps adding new features. It’s been over a decade since I wrote my 1st series of tips about it. They all still work, though some of the URLs and controls have changed a bit.

Here’s a whole batch of new tips:
- http://bristle.com/Tips/Internet.htm#google_maps_assorted_tips

It includes things like adding stops along a route, finding gas stations, Augmented Reality walking directions, historical street view (what’s changed at an address over the years), Uber/Lyft support, parking, where you’ve walked/biked/driven over the years, Incognito Mode, sharing your realtime location with a friend, etc.

(If you’ve been to the page recently, be sure to refresh your browser to see the latest version, dated 6/23/2021.)

Enjoy!
