Google Maps Update Adds Events Section, Altitude Data for Cycling, Walking
Google Maps Update Adds Events Section
The latest Google Maps update (v4.57) on iOS has introduced a couple of new features. The first one of them is an Events section in the Explore tab, which presents a list of interesting events such as comedy shows and fests near your current location.
The Events section will be populated by cards of different events containing the name, address and timing when the particular event starts.
The second feature brought by the update is the altitude data, which graphically represents the change in elevation between users' current location and the destination if they choose cycling or walking.
