Google upgrades its maps designed for Android based mobiles
San Francisco: In a bid to give a fresh competition to Apple, Internet giant Google is upgrading its maps that are specially designed for mobile phones that work on its Android software.
The update released on Thursday includes directions and departure times for more than 1 million stations worldwide for the first time.
New technology on the maps will allow users to focus exclusively on directions for specific transportation options, such as the subway, while excluding other alternatives such as the bus.
The changes come as Apple Inc. prepares to replace Google`s maps as the automatic navigation service on the iPhone and iPad. Apple is casting aside Google for its own mobile mapping service.
