Speed limit in­di­ca­tors

Dur­ing di­rec­tions, Maps may show the speed limit for the road you’re on. Don’t want the guilt trip? Go to Set­tings > Maps > Driv­ing & Nav­i­ga­tion and turn off Speed Limit un­der “Show in Nav­i­ga­tion.”

Quickly switch view

You can now more quickly switch be­tween fol­low­ing turn‑by-turn di­rec­tions and an over­view of your jour­ney: tap the cur­rent in­struc­tion at the top of the screen.

Ori­ent the over­view

When you switch to the over­view, a com­pass briefly ap­pears at the top right. Tap it to switch be­tween the top of the screen be­ing aligned to North, or your des­ti­na­tion. When the com­pass is hid­den, tap the map to re­veal it.

Show rides from new apps

When you ask for di­rec­tions, Maps can sug­gest ride-book­ing apps that are al­ready in­stalled (in Set­tings > Maps, un­der Ride Book­ing Ex­ten­sions). You might have turned this off, per­haps be­cause you pre­fer to use those ser­vices’ apps when they are your only op­tion in a neigh­bor­hood. But you can choose to have any fu­ture ride-book­ing apps you in­stall of­fered in Maps by de­fault. To do so, turn on Show Rides From New Apps in Maps’ Set­tings page.
