If you’ve ever wondered about the secret sauce behind that feature the answer is pretty simple. And as you might expect, it’s also very logical and somewhat creepy.

This is the new interface Google is testing right now in Google Maps

Google Maps Car Directions

It's relatively rare that an app or product that starts a sea change in any market remains a market leader for an extended period of time. Typically, early offerings give way to rival products that refine the initial offerings and add new features. In the case of Google Maps, however, Google managed to launch a revolution in personal mapping and navigation, and then maintain a clear lead in this crucial space in the years that followed. Today, Google Maps continues to drive the local search and personal navigation markets, due in large part to Google's continuing efforts to add useful new features and enhancements to the app. And now, we've been treated to a sneak peek at yet another interesting change Google is testing for its market-leading Maps app.

Google Maps will make it easier to find a parking spot

Google Maps Parking Information
Google Maps will not index all the available parking spots near your destination, or at least not yet. Such a feature would be a valuable addition to the popular mapping service, and we might see it roll out in the more distant future when parking availability for a location is updated in real-time. That said, Google Maps will make it easier for you to find a parking spot in an area you don’t know, by offering information about parking difficulty.
