Google Maps Gets Motorcycle Mode in India Showing Navigation Routes for Two Wheelers

Google Maps Motorcycle Mode Launched in India for 2 Wheeler

Google Maps version 9.67.1, updated on November 30, 2017 for Android features the two-wheeler mode so in case you haven't got it, wait for the app update. "India is also one of the top 3 country for user contributions for maps", Martha Welsh, Director, Google Maps, said making the announcement. Google will eventually sort out all the issues, and in the meantime, try out the new "Two Wheeler Mode" for yourself. These products and features are India-first, but they are not India-only.

"We don't adapt maps for India". And since so many Indians rely on local landmarks for navigation, two-wheeler mode will show major landmarks on the route so that riders can plan their trip before starting, and don't have to keep checking the phone on the go.
