I love google maps. I use all time google maps only in my journey.

At this time google given an opportunity to contribute


One day I not saved the offline route and went for outside. that time a stranger shared his wi-fi a minute I saved the map. this is a sweet example how often I use maps instead of asking the address 


I am from India. I love to map India and other countries also


Thanks and regards
