1. Take a 360-degree look around with Street View, available for addresses in 21 major cities.
You can see where you’re going, find out what the neighborhood looks like and feel more comfortable once you get there.
2. Check live traffic data with color-coding on major roads. Different colors represent the speed of traffic (or roads appear in gray, if no information is available).
3. Adjust your driving route. Sometimes, when you see the directions suggested by mapping software, you notice that a portion of the route isn’t quite right, or you know of a more scenic route. Use your mouse and drag the line onto another road. Your directions change instantly.
