If you are a user of Google Maps in Zambia you must be happy as a key and major roll out is happening from today for Google Maps application. Google Maps has many good points. I love looking at Google Maps as it helps me quickly locate places in Zambia. When i have a trip to Lusaka and need to be at a point am not sure of i first consult the Google Maps. SO as Google makes fresher updates to the Maps application it makes a case of usability.
Google Maps major updates where mentioned early in May at Google I/O 2018.
But today when i checked my Google Maps this morning around 11am i noticed a change in the user interface that included new buttons and colorful icons against a mostly white background. Locations and places where clearly marked with different colors and a soft font either regular or bold. To have the new maps you need not do anything. Its a server side update and its been rolled out firstly on Android as users reach out to the application.
Google map images and maps in satellite mode showed the terrain more clear and in hd with clearly marked trees and roads. Although the update has removed some major roads and relegated them to minor. Like look at the Ndola Mufulira Road you will notice the relegation and instead the Sakania road in Congo gets a major highlight. Also i noticed some roads leading to my home where completely cut and google had to estimate my journey home wrongly.
