Shockingly, they don't even possess a proprietary Global Positioning System algorithm of their own and instead use Google Maps, while some do nothing but blast ads on the phone screen.
Waze users are already familiar with speed trap reports, so they'll know what to expect on Google Maps. That's Waze, an app that Google acquired a few years ago, and it does navigation a little differently than Google Maps and other rivals. Regular updates mean you will no longer get stuck in traffic as you would have been informed well ahead of time even before you live home or the office.
Now, Android Police has received tips from Maps users scattered throughout the United States (including Los Angeles, New York City and Minnesota) who have begun seeing speed limits as a small tile on the bottom left of the map.
Google Maps is probably the most commonly used navigation tool in use today.
If you aren't seeing them, again, you'll only see speed limits in Google Maps while navigating. The Screenshot is given below take a look.
As soon as road safety warnings and speed limit warnings are made available globally, just a simple feature will be missing to make the transition complete.
It's great to see that Google is finally pushing this out to users as it's been a feature that we've all been wanting since Waze and Apple Maps have it. The new feature has been confirmed to work in at least New City City, Los Angeles, and Minnesota. Furthermore, according to the latest reports, Google Maps will also send an audio notification to the driver when he will approach a speed trap.
It's unknown if Google is rolling out the speed limit feature in more destinations, however, Google Maps has recently received more updates, Engadget reported.
Citing data from Maps, Google added "people in North America spend a full day per month commuting-which nearly adds up to a two-week vacation each year".
The real difference between Google Map and fake navigation app is the redesigned front page of the app with the help of UI that acts as a way of serving ads, keeping in mind the fact that the app was actually working alongside Google's data, and the most risky thing in this fake app is it asks for the access to SMS, phone call logs and other services that map actually does not need, and get user personal data which can be unsafe. They get these 4 stars review with the help of fake review agents. Though it does make the most sense in the navigation portion of the app, since most people do use Google Maps when they are going somewhere they haven't gone before. Also Play Protect, which is active in most Android phones still can't detect these shady apps, its baffling.
