Even if you're traveling to a location in the city you live in, Google Maps can help you figure out how to get there.

Google Maps is easy to use whether you're looking for a specific destination or a street. All you have to do is enter the address of where you want to go to get the map of the area as well as driving directions. When you enter the name of a business, the app will give you a list of the businesses in the area so that you can choose which one you want. Updates re given in real time so that you can see how the traffic is at certain times of the day.

The maps that are available are sometimes hard to decipher as they combine every street and alley known to exist in that town in one image. When you zoom out to get a better look at the area, it sometimes zooms too far for you to be able to read the names of the roads. There is an option to listen to driving directions with the app, which is helpful, but you need to have the sound turned up and the streets entered as they should be because the voice directions can sometimes be hard to understand. You can view various stops that you might take along your route, such as gas stations, grocery stores or fast food restaurants.
