The Android smartphone already includes an extraordinary app capable of guiding you everywhere. The app is called Maps and is a Google service that offers access to world maps. 

Maps can be used in two ways: both as simple interactive geographical map on which to find information about pharmacies, hospitals, public transport, and so on, both how navigation service on which to choose a starting point and an arrival point and then calculate the shortest route to get there.

To decide where to start the navigator you can use the starting point or specify a place manually. In the first case, all you have to do is leave it to Maps, which by default uses device detection. In addition, the Android navigator uses the geolocation service, that is, it uses the mobile phone signal, then the cells to which the phone is hooked, to have a line and using the GPS module. The latter is very accurate and allows a direct connection with the satellite to establish your starting position and giving useful information, including: speed, travel and so on.

At the same time, it is also possible to select two alternative routes based on the possibility of following secondary roads. Once you've made all these decisions, all you need to do is press the button Departure, to activate the Google Maps Navigator app. The app will change interface reproducing the dynamic 3D cartography typical of a navigator GPS. In the center you will find the arrow that corresponds to your position, at the top the name of the street you are on and the destination to take. Below are the travel specifications: travel time, time of arrival and remaining kilometers and time of arrival.

The first parameter can be indicated with colors green, yellow e red. In the first case there is no traffic, in the second case there are delays, in the third case we are in a congested area. Finally, the writing can also be gray because Google is not able to receive information about the trip,
