Google Maps adds multi-stop feature to iOS version

Already available on the Android version of Google Maps, multi-stop directions is now a feature for those using the app on an iOS device. With this feature, iOS users are now just a tap away from receiving directions to multiple destinations. Once you enter a location, you can add additional stops by clicking on "Add stop" in the corner. And you can change the order of your trip by customizing the order of the destinations on your list.

When you've finished adding all of the destinations, click on "Done" and you will experience the usual smooth navigation from the first stop on your list all the way to the last. While we are still in the midst of the summer driving season, this feature definitely comes in handy and certainly saves you time.

Instead of having to stop and re-enter the next address each time you complete one leg of your journey, all you do is enter all of the addresses before you start out on the road. Make sure that the order of each stop is exactly where you want it, and start navigating. 

Yes, it's been years since Apple Maps was considered life threatening. But if you totally rely on Apple Maps, it doesn't hurt to have a back up. To download Google Maps on your iOS device, simply click on the link below.

"But if you totally rely on Apple Maps, it doesn't hurt to have a backup" Apple Maps isn't reliable, Mr Alan! So, having Google Maps as a backup is mandatory. In fact, Apple Maps isn't worth it. Apple itself admitted it.

2012! If Apple maps are not reliable, than android flagships still lag. You want to continue living in the past?

My Android flagship in 2012 did not lag! So, it's called "living in the past" when I say Apple Maps isn't reliable? Even HERE Maps is a better option, not to mention Google Maps!

Androids all generally lagged and jitters right up to recently when they started adding 3+gb of ram and multicores. I used Apple maps from the day my phone got it - and I had no issues either (someone in Australia did) - I did not! So let's argue anecdotally, lol. But you missed my point completely. You're using articles from 2012, Apple maps is near perfect. I've checked things against Google maps - that thing after 10 years of development still makes mistakes where Apple maps does not and Apple maps is only a couple years old since out of beta. My point is, this is a very old argument and no longer invalid. Android flagships don't lag anymore and Apple maps is very reliable. Close that book buddy - arguing about it is a waste of time.

Alright, don't get me wrong, with iOS 9 its improved quite a bit, with public transit, POIs and UI changes, but I gave it a chance in the beta and honestly I am not anywhere near convicted to switch over from the Google Maps app, it lacks a lot of transit info, SEPTA, local bus routes in my area and when I was in the U.K. It didn't have any of the national rail services, all of which are fine on google Maps app... It also lacks information of a lot of public places (eg opening times) and annoyingly it STILL has a horrible search mechanism, for example earlier I was searching for "Mt. Robson", Google maps brings it up, no problem, but Maps brings up a bunch of random pins in MT, Mexico. Why can't Apple implement a similar search method of bringing up popular/relevant info when exact places are searched, rather than just any place in the world which match the keywords??? I know it's still just a half-baked, but I'm not sure how far it will go till the GM? At this point Apple should just negotiate a way to integrate Google maps back into the Maps app... Idk what do you guys think?

It's not 2012 anymore, but it keeps proving to be unreliable here in Canada. Just recently, I contacted some Furnace and Duct cleaners to come do some cleaning in my home. They arrived 2 hours late contacting me earlier that they put my address in GPS and it took them somewhere totally different. On arrival, he starts giving me excuses for arriving late and pointing at his iPhone 5/5s/5SE, I just ask "are you using Apple Maps", and he answers "yes". I just conclude that's why and move on with the job.

LoL. Oldest trick in the book, blame technology when running late. I've done it all the time when I was running services back in the day. Btw, there's no iPhone 5SE. Just SE.
