The most popular and possibly the best maps app in the world is Google Maps. This service by Google that has mapped almost the entire planet and that comes along with hundreds of useful functions such as a GPS navigator adapted to different vehicles and means of transport (you can use it on foot, by car, by bus...), is one of the most useful tools that we can have on our smartphone.
However, it's an application that's been going on for quite some time with plenty of updates in its history. The latter have incorporated functions such as 3D views that require devices with higher capacities and that can be a problem for many users that only have low-end smartphones or tablets.
Go, the lite version of Google Maps
So, in order to not lose any users, Google has released the lite version of its map service. We're talking about Google Maps Go with which you can easily and quickly find your bearings all over the world with the help of its satellite system.
We're talking about an app that consumes fewer resources without jeopardizing the provision of data such as the GPS location, real-time traffic, directions or public transport services such as trains and buses. It also includes the possibility to search for information about millions of places, including phone numbers and addresses.
