About Google Maps
Google Maps provides services with respect to locations to both users and is also much helpful for major ride-sharing services. Some of the key features of Google Maps include calculating the distance between your location and destination and suggesting the best route based on traffic conditions.
While it is most widely used mapping service in the world, there are times when Google Maps make a mistake. The alternate routes might be a way to guide to the destination when mapping is improper, but Google does it well in updating of routes. Few times we also see people asking others on the roadside for way to reach their destination, even when following Google Maps.
