Google Maps is one of the most widely used navigating apps used both on Android and iOS platforms. It was back in March this year, when we saw the regular arrow being replaced by the famous Mario Cart on the eve of Mario Day. But this time, Google Maps brings an option to use a 3D vehicle to navigate through your route.

In fact, the new feature has been rolled out for iOS-designed devices in the first phase. With this feature, the iOS users can choose a 3D vehicle on the navigation map. The company has announced the new update in its official blog and twitter handle on May 21 to let users to “customize” their driving.

According to the official blog post, the iOS users can select any of the three available vehicles among “a stylish sedan”, “a timeless pickup truck” and “a speedy SUV”.

To choose a new vehicle, users need to tap on the arrow during the driving navigation mode and then select the type of vehicle icon they want to appear on the road. It is important to mention that blue vehicle icon is only available in the driving navigation mode.


As mentioned earlier, the 3D vehicle feature is only available for iOS users whereas the Android and Web users are likely to enjoy the new feature very soon. Keep waiting!!!
