AR Maps is an augmented reality (AR) map application that utilizes AR for intuitive map reading.
Google Maps can now be used on iPhone 5 (iOS 6)!
(Users can switch between the standard iPhone map and Google Maps in Settings.)
Search for information on local eateries and find your bearing with AR.
After you decide on a destination, set it as your desired destination and perform a route search. Display the direction or route to your destination and simply hold up the iPhone to intuitively read the map. Perform a transfer search to your destination, and perform another route search from your exit station.
In addition, you can share your current location and destination by email with another AR Map user, which is handy for setting up a meeting spot at a first-time location or during travel.
You can set the destination from an address or station name in Google Local Search. Of course you can also search for places like a public restroom or movie theater.
