Trying to follow Google Maps navigation and running at the same time is not always the easiest, especially if you are on a busy street or a jittery connection means that navigation is always a little slow. Guiding the little blue dots can only be a challenge – it's not easy to see and doesn't always direct where you are. TooFor iPhone and Android you are 100% crystal clear where you are going to turn. how? By superimposing a huge arrow on the screen to tell you so. It's called Live View, and it's here to help you reach your goal.
The Live View feature presents your surroundings as viewed by your phone's camera, using the AR to place large arrows that tell you exactly when to turn left or right. If you lose, you will not be able to rotate your phone or swivel until you point the arrow in the right direction.
As of now, the Live View is only available for walking king navigation, but we wouldn't be surprised if Google eventually opens it to driving directions, too. (Google didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.) This week, Google will slowly roll out the function on Android phones and iPhones, so keep checking back.
Here's how to use Live View on your phone.
