Google Maps shows speedometer as you drive; know how to activate | Maps and location

Google Maps can now show on Android a speedometer on the screen while the user is driving. The small speedometer is displayed in the left corner of the display and shows the numbering in km / h all the way. The indicated feature is to control the speed of the vehicle and to know if the driver is traveling above the allowed limit on the roads. It is especially useful if the cell phone is in the lift. Remember that the function already existed in Waze, an application that also belongs to Google.

Check out the tutorial below for step by step how to enable the Google Maps speedometer. For now, the news is not yet released for iPhone (iOS).
