Hello Fellow Mi Fans,
Google Maps has become an integral part of our life specially for those who commute a lot. Many of us, can’t even fathom the idea of driving around new places without the ever helpful Google Maps. From getting directions to popular coffee shops to navigating around in road trips, it’s an almost indispensable tool to have when you’re on the road. People who commute a lot always turn to Google Maps and the company keeps updating its features for its loyal users. Among various features of the Google Maps, we have listed out 5 significant in this volume of Mi Bunny Tips. Let's start to explore!
1. Gesture Control:
You must be aware of the conventional way of zooming into a map using the pinch-in feature, however, this feature can prove to be a bit cumbersome especially if you are behind the wheel. There’s an easier way of zooming in and out that you probably don’t know about.
Just double tap on the map with one finger and without lifting your finger, drag down to zoom out. Similarly, for a zoom in, double tap and drag the finger up. You can also use this nifty feature to tilt the map. That would require two fingers, though. Double tap and slide down to tilt the map, while a slide-up will restore it.

2. Using Maps in Offline:
The advantage of having Google Maps is that you can download a section of the map. If you're going where the Internet is slow, mobile data is expensive, or you can't get online, you can save an area from Google Maps to your phone or tablet and use it when you're offline.
In your Google Maps App you will find this option by tapping on upper left corner; here you will find some settings as well to customize.

Been to a place, but you can’t remember the name or the location? You need not to be worried as Google Maps keeps a history of your movements every single day. To find this, you need to head over to Maps and there's you will find an option called Timeline.
Here, Google Maps shows you the places you’ve been and the routes you’ve taken. It also makes sure that you can update or delete data that Maps may have captured wrong.
