Google maps introduced new feature in the map application when ever your taxi or auto goes off route it will give you alert or warning message. Generally when we take a drive if the route is unknown to us some one can take us in a wrong direction. This feature is solves kind of  such instances. Lets see how it works


  • Select source and destination in google map
  • Click on start directions

Just click on the Get off route alerts and this option alert us the warning message when we go out 500 m from normal route.This will be very useful when we go by auto or taxi.
