Google Maps Driving Directions now in SA

Finally, the moment we have all been waiting for.
Google has added driving directions for South African users, which now allow us to get directions free of charge using the Google maps engine.

Google maps driving directions can be used on both the website, as well as the iPhone Maps app.

Here is an example of how to get driving directions in Google Maps. Go to, and select the directions tab. Enter your departure address, and your destination address.

The cool thing is it gives you step by step instructions as well as highlighting it on a map. MapMap2

Next step is Google Streetview, which we should hopefully see in about April next year

    It also works on the Google Maps Java Application for mobile phones that are not iPhone or Android…. :D

  2. This is great. Google Maps offer many features without lock in to other propitiatory systems!

    Yes, but it still doesn’t do turn-by-turn on iphone/mobile phones, does it?
