Have you ever been driving down a road and just can't remember the speed limit? Then you worry if you are going to see the sheriff or a speed limit sign first forcing you to slow down. A feature that was first exposed to me from a now Google-owned app Waze can solve that issue. Google Maps needs an integrated speed limit and a speedometer widget to their app.
Why we should have it
It's an odd thing to most of us that if you want to have these features in your Google Maps you have to download 3rd party apps. Apple Maps has it, and so should Google Maps! It's a big reason why most Apple users stick to their Apple Maps. I believe that integrating this feature would send a surge of Apple users over to Google Maps. A lot of people who I have talked to have mentioned the Speed limit feature in Apple Maps is the reason they use it. I also believe that it would make us users who already love Google Maps, love it more!
The research has already been done
Apple maps, as well as other companies, have already integrated said feature. Many of the kinks and the legalities have also already been sorted, integrating this feature should be swift, and would greatly benefit the user base.
