If you are an avid user of Google Maps, then surely you would know that the latest version of Google Maps will bump it up to version number 6.12, and the good people over at Google have thrown in additional useful and comprehensive features, where the few improvements made are able to better sync your maps experience across all the entire collection of your devices. The updated Google Maps for Android will allow you to perform faster and more accurate searches right there and then on the browser of your Android-powered smarphone.
All you need to do is make sure that you remain signed in to Google Maps, and enable your web history, and you are set to enjoy a slew of new benefits that will include search and directions history. The moment you begin to type a place or directions into the search box on your Android device, the most likely suggestions from Google for both directions and locations that you’ve previously searched for will pop up, making the entire process far more efficient than ever before. Not only that, you are also able to check out your mapping search history and directions history on your Android phone by going to the “Search” or “Directions” tab under My Places.
