Modern technologies allow do not buy the paper-map in unknown place, and it allow to use electron map.
The huge advantage of any electron map is in that it represents your location.
The most popular map of the travellers is Google Map, on the example of which we study basisof navigation with the help of smartphone.
For a start, install the app from Google Play, by means as we learned in the 5th lesson
Further, we start the app, press-button an icon of the title of the present lesson. The app allows to determine your location (the buttons rounded by green color), choose the point of destination, to pave the route to any point on the map(rounded by red color), or to turn on the tips by the choosen route(rounded by yellow)
Started navigator (blue colored button with the arrow key) allows you to receive the voice instructions, where are you moving to and where you have to turn taking into account if you are moving on foot or by car.
There are a lot of extra functions in the app, as the memorizing the places, that you have visited, the hitory of your trip, your imressions from the places, which you have been visiting, and even the traffic jams. Context menu of the app can be started by press-button in view of the three strips ( rounded by red color) and further choose of any menu item. On the picture on the right, it’s shown the traffic jams, green - if the way is free, yellow - if the movement is complicated, red - is the traffic jams.
You have opportunity to share your location with your friends by means of SMS, Whatsapp, Gmail. Your friend will receive a notification with the adress and link, pressing it, he/she will be able to find your location. Its very convenient, if you will get lost.
