Google Maps hides some unknown functions that can provide significant convenience to any driver.

Huge are the changes that Google Maps has caused in the way we move, given that they offer us the guidance we need to quickly and seamlessly reach a destination without getting lost.

Google Maps, however, is much more than an application that shows the route the user should follow. They also hide other functions, which, although unknown to most app users, can prove to be particularly useful.

Where have I parked my car?

How many times have we forgotten where we parked our car when we return to it, especially since we are in an unfamiliar area?

This is a problem that comes to solve a function of Google Maps that allows us to “mark” on the map the location where we have left our car parked.

To use this function, we must press the blue dot that shows our position on the map and select the point as “Save parking location”. Then the parking position of our car will be denoted by the letter “P”.

So, the only thing you have to do when returning to the car is to open the mobile phone and follow the instructions.

At which gas station will I find cheap gas?

With fuel prices in Greece continuing to be among the highest in Europe, drivers are on the lookout for gas stations that will allow them to reduce refueling costs.

Google Maps provides them with a helping hand in this effort. All we have to do is open the application and select “Gas Stations”, under the central search bar. Then, the gas stations located around us will appear, as well as the selling price of 95% gasoline.

Then, if we click on a gas station, then a box will appear with the prices of all fuels.

How can I reduce fuel consumption?

With Google having prioritized the reduction of the environmental footprint during our travels, it gives the user the opportunity to choose the route in which their vehicle will consume the least fuel.

All the user has to do is to “open” Google Maps and select the destination. Next, he must tap on the three horizontal dots in the upper right corner of the screen and select “Route Options”.

Then he taps “Fuel-Efficient Routes”, but also “Engine Type”, choosing between “petrol”, “diesel”, “electric” and “hybrid”. The route with the lowest fuel consumption will then appear on the map. It is worth noting that “petrol” is the default option.
