Google Maps – Estimated Departure & Arrival Times

The most popular app for Maps – Google Maps – now has estimated departure and arrival times built-in. What it means is that if you are planning to leave by car, tomorrow at 11 am to go to a certain destination, you will get an estimate of your arrival time, today. Conversely, if you have to reach a certain destination at 3 pm for a meeting next Thursday, you can get a prediction of when to leave, based on the traffic conditions normally found on that day and time. Of course, it will not be able to predict any major incidents / blockages that may actually occur on that day.

Once you select the departure and destination locations, the Set depart and arrive time option is available under the ‘Menu’ icon (three dots) at the top-right corner of the Google Maps app.

Now plan your trips sensibly and always arrive in style, on time!
