Google Maps is one of the leading navigation tools for people worldwide. However, users are sometimes frustrated that it doesn’t always provide the best routes and times to their destination. Some even use other GPS apps in conjunction with Google Maps in order to access better data and tools so that they can save time.
I redesigned Google Maps by adding new features to the app. The app allows users to predict traffic times, plan and save routes in advance, instantly change routes when they are directed to closed roads, and get customized navigation for HOV lanes. These improvements help users be more efficient with their time and where they need to go.
