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.

Google Maps Wi-Fi Only

Google Maps iOS app now gives ride fares & pickup times for five more services

The iOS Google Maps app has long shown you Uber fares and pickup times when you search for a destination, provided that you have the Uber app installed. Google has integrated five more services into its mapping app. Most of these are for countries outside the USA – though NYC dwellers can also use Gett.

If you have a provider’s app installed and tap on the ride service tab, you’ll be able to see fare estimates and pick up times if a car is available near you. Select a service, and we’ll take you directly to their app for you to book your ride with one tap. When it makes sense, we’ll also show ride service availability when viewing the map in walking and transit directions, and multiple ride services options for each provider—where they exist. For example, if you’re using Uber, starting today, we’ll now show uberX, uberXL and UberBLACK for an easy and quick comparison.
