Google Maps speed trap warnings have arrived for some users

As we all have heard several times that Google is bringing incidents reports features in Google Map navigation app.

Speed limits in Google Maps aren't technically new seeing as how they kind of launched in July 2017, but only in the San Franciso Bay Area in the United States and Rio de Janeiro over in Brazil.

Speed trap alerts are exactly what they sound like - small warnings in the transportation app that show users where they might be at risk of getting a speeding ticket. That's Waze, an app that Google acquired a few years ago, and it does navigation a little differently than Google Maps and other rivals.

If you are a Waze user than for you it normal to see the speed trap reports, so now, you know what to expect from Google.

Google has been adding UI to enable these features for the past few months, and Waze fans can finally rejoice as some of the app's best functions are added to Google Maps.

It is true that with the arrival of these features in Google Maps, Waze will no longer have its strongest arguments.

Gabbard's political positioning in recent years, which has served to establish her as a maverick among Democrats. But the main reason I'm running has to do with an issue that is central to the rest-war and peace.

This seems to suggest that Google is flipping the server-side switch and enabling the feature for Google Maps users.

However, this feature that was rediscovered recently was said to be visible on Google Maps when you're on the road, and there's even an audio cue when users are approaching the speed camera. People in Los Angeles, New York City and Minneapolis have all gotten the update.

The new commute tab is located in the toolbar at the bottom of the Google Maps app, between the "Explore" and "For you" tabs.

Adding these features to Maps makes sense, particularly given Google's increasing focus on personalization in the app. However, we have not gotten the addition of speed limit signs, and we are also in the beta.

Based on his results, he determined that Google Maps gets users to their destination fastest.
