Google is expanding its fleet of car GPS units, adding a new car-based link to its mapping app Google Maps.GPS links to Google maps are a feature that allow cars to use Google’s maps to find locations on their own, without needing to know the address of a destination or other information.
Google maps also supports the Google Maps APIs.
Gps links to a Google app are typically a way to make GPS devices work with the company’s Maps app, but they can also be used for other purposes.
One example is a navigation tool for a smart car.
Gets rid of the need for your car to find your location and to download your mapsGPS devices allow cars with a car-enabled GPS link to use other Google services to help them find nearby locations, including Google Maps, Google Maps Directions, Google Street View and Google Transit.
Google said it will add the car-specific Google Maps link to the Google maps app on July 23.
It will also make it possible to share the link to other apps, such as the Google Drive, Google Hangouts and Google Calendar apps.
Gravatar-style cargops are Google’s own car-gps products.
It launched its own version of cargps for cars with Android and iOS phones last year.
Google cars have also partnered with Ford Motor Co. and Audi AG in an effort to bring its products to market.
