Visual navigation

Tap the button and point your camera where you need relevant info on the surroundings. You will see an overlay of Maps information and arrows pointing you in the direction you need to go.

This is a powerful addition to Google Maps and they use augmented reality to put an animated character on the phone’s screen to guide you to the destination.

Visual Positioning System – VPS

New Google maps integrated with Visual Positioning System (VPS) feature. To identify where you are with greater accuracy, VPS uses your phone’s camera and analyze your surroundings with Google’s extensive back-end data.

The new visual systems are made for people who live in densely populated urban areas with tall buildings and often complain of GPS drift.
