Also, will be easier to remember places you've been.The new update for navigation shows you in which lane to be to not miss a turn off in the next intersection. Another thing is that you could save maps offline now.If you want to leave to a place where you won't have Internet, you could search the location before to start and save it in the sheets. There you choose "save map to use offline".Now it's simple to find a bar, a restaurant or a hotel, as there are more filters for you now. Also, the information about directions to places are more accurate now. There are also the times for buses and trains.If you are logged in with your Google account, you could save your favorite places in a list. You have to tap on the location and add a star to it. From that moment, this place will appear with a start on all your devices. To get to this, just tap on the place you want and select Street View. We don't know if this feature will be available everywhere.The Maps 8.0 has started rolling out, but some users should expect more time for it.
