The days of paper maps are long gone, which can be a little confusing for those who don't consider themselves tech-savvy. Here at DeBoer’s, we want to help you live life with ease. Google Maps is one of the best and easiest GPS systems. It allows you to find directions with ease while providing many different valuable features. Whether you are on your phone, tablet, or computer Google Maps can help you find your way around. 

The map provided has multiple different map types and details. You can choose between three map types Default, Satellite, and Terrain. These three maps provide different levels of terrain detail allowing you to choose what is easiest to read for you. Google Map also provides map details that can be turned on and off such as traffic, public transit, and COVID-19 information. 

Getting directions home couldn't be easier with Goggle Maps. With their labeled locations feature you can now directions at the click of a button. You can create labels for your most frequented places like home or work. Not only could you label places but there are multiple list categories that are available to you. These lists include favorite places, places you want to go, starred places, and travel plans. 

Whether you are bored at home, looking for where to eat dinner, or looking for parking Google Maps has you covered. Google Maps has a categories section with four major categories Food & Drink, Things to do, Shopping and Services. These easy-to-navigate categories help you find what you are looking for and nearby. 

Google Maps creates a timeline of your travel helping create a consistent log. This can help users create a consistent timeline of the use of their car and the time and distance traveled. This can be particularly useful for people who are drivers or use a company car to help calculate travel expenses like gas. This can also be helpful to parents who want to make sure their kid is safe. Another measure added to ensure the safety of users is the location sharing feature. This shares your real-time location with your friends and family even when the app is not opened or in use. The location-sharing feature also shares other vital information about your device such as battery life.

Users even have the ability to use Google Maps offline. Users can download large areas to their devices and be able to get accurate location information and directions. These offline maps update while the user is connected to the internet to provide the most up-to-date information. DeBoer’s Auto wants to make sure you can get to where you want to go safely and quickly. This dive into the features provided in Google Maps will make it easier for you to travel this summer.
