Android Google Maps Adds Cycling Directions

Android Google Maps Adds Cycling Directions

Android: Hot on the heels of adding cycling routes to Google Maps in Australia, Google is now offering the same information in its Android Google Maps app. The latest update to the Android app maps out cycling lanes and other bike-safe routes.

The updated directions work in 12 countries, and also offers turn-by-turn voice directions.

  • This is good, but I’ve found a few bugs already. There is a creek opposite my house that google maps thinks is a main bike thoroughfare (mountain bikes, complete with creek crossings, mud and rocks maybe). Also, the Ermington Bay bike path, opened last year shows up on the map, but says bikes aren’t allowed.

    Small things I know (and all reported), but other than that, it’s a great little tool!
