Google Maps adds new iPhone features
Google Maps is the best mapping service available, and the company is always introducing new features. The company has recently announced a few modifications to how maps are displayed on mobile devices, as well as a few new capabilities that are only available on Apple devices and take advantage of latest iOS technology.

Google, on the other hand, is now going a step further by presenting predicted toll prices for a whole route, which was tried last year.
