In addition to the standard navigation features, Google Maps offers a number of additions, some of which are less obvious than others but play an important role in the overall experience of the application.
A feature like adapting Google Maps to different types of displays and cars. For example, if you have a right-hand drive car, Google Maps will automatically display the user interface with basic information surrounding the driver.
For example, no matter what type of car you have (left-hand or right-hand drive), Google Maps always shows the most important details of the driver’s nearest navigation, which makes perfect sense because the application must be driven on the wheel first
But, the recent change in Google Maps has caused confusion for many users, styling it in right hand drive cars while the processor is running on Android making it look like a left hand model. Auto
Needless to say, such a change in layout is as unpredictable as possible and sometimes difficult to use with Google Maps, especially when navigation is enabled.
On the other hand, it is not clear exactly why this change is being made to Google Maps. Google itself has confirmed that it is examining a report that Google Maps uses the LHD architecture in RHD cars, indicating that this is an error and not its intended behavior.
Is there anything you can do to bring your vehicle back to normal? Not really, and most of the common solutions available now make no difference. Resetting Google Maps, deleting cache and all other routine tricks will not restore the expected behavior in Google Maps as it prompts users to stick with some basic information that appears near the traveler.
As expected, this change not only makes Google Maps more confusing and confusing, but also warns users that it could be distracting and sometimes dangerous.
“This is going to crash today because the map is now displayed on the left side of the screen, away from the driver and very distracting.“Someone To explain In the official Google forums, dozens of users have already reported a similar problem with Android Auto.
“This really needs to be fixed! In its current form, it is distracting, unusable and dangerous because you have to look at the passenger side of the screen.Another person was added.
In the meantime, who is more likely to have this problem? It often happens in RHD cars, and although it is not yet clear whether left-hand models are affected, I find many people complaining that Google Maps suddenly changes its layout overnight.
Now the good news. Google has confirmed that this issue is already being investigated. However, on the other hand, ETA does not say when a bug will be released to return to Google Maps default.
If you struggle with this problem, Google Maps behind the wheel is confusing and dangerous, unfortunately there is no other option but to switch to another navigation application, at least until Google finds a solution.
There are many useful alternatives, but the best one is undoubtedly Waze, another Google Privacy Navigation solution that helps you avoid traffic in a particular area. Waze, on the other hand, does not have offline map support because it requires stable Internet access to receive reports from other users and determine the quickest way to the destination.
