Google help for navigating the holidays

Techstination feature for Friday, December 3, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        It can be hectic getting around over the holiday season.    Many more people are headed back out for shopping and visiting family and friends.   At Google Maps…there are new features designed to help.   Google’s Justin Burr says a new feature can help you save money on gas…

“Gas prices are a little high right now.  Everybody keeps caring about the environment more and more and so there’s like a little green leaf next to whatever route is the most eco friendly.  And beyond that when you’re searching for restaurants or grocery stores and trying to avoid the crowds, you can see how crowded a business is at a specific time and you kind of plan your trip around that.”

You can also check how busy a shop or restaurant usually is on a certain day and time.  Useful tools designed to make things….maybe… a little less stressful.

You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
