How to use the new features of updated Google Maps for iOS

google mapGoogle Maps for iOS was updated this week, bringing the usual bug fixes and a handful of new features.

When you are using the app to get directions, you can now select your starting point and destination by tapping on the map instead of needing to know the exact address.

When choosing either a starting point or a destination, there is a Choose on map option that opens the map with a red pin at its center.
