Google Maps Gains Enhanced Street-Level Detail in Four Major Cities

Google Maps has quietly been updated to include significantly more detailed street-level information in a handful of key cities around the world. Upon zooming in, Google's maps for Central London, Tokyo, San Francisco, and New York now benefit from shapes and widths that match the scale of roads more accurately.

Google Maps' Moat is Evaporating (slashdot)

An anonymous reader shares an analysis: See, Google Maps is not just an app on your phone. It's also a suite of developer tools that power countless other applications that are used by millions of people every day. And that part of the business is known as the Google Maps Platform (but most of the time I hear it referred to as the Google Maps API). In 2018, Google inexplicably decided to self-sabotage their enterprise maps business by raising their prices ~1,400% overnight. The only time in my l...

How to hack Android Auto to display custom content

Google's Android Auto application casts content from a smartphone to a car's head unit display. Officially, that content includes navigation (e.g., Google Maps and Waze), media players (e.g., VLC, Spotify), and messaging apps. The application is useful, but it would be even better if you could show a film on your head unit's display or use it as an interface to a custom onboard computer that manages multiple cameras, GPS, and so on.

Google’s Android Auto finally has a third-party app for navigation

Good news for Android Auto users who hate Google derived maps — third-party navigation apps are now available! For most of its life, Android Auto only offered full support for Google Maps or Waze for navigation. Other mapping apps would work, but they were restricted to the phone interface. However, with news that offline mapping app Sygic has launched a beta build on Android Auto this week, users now have another option. I’m sure this matters to someone out there, although I’ve never had issues...
