Intuitive alternative routes
Almost more interesting than the display of the traffic situation is the possibility to plan alternative routes. If there is meaningful alternative routes, Google Maps displays them from themselves in a short list. A click on the respective entries then also the representation of the route guide in the map. In addition, you can dragDrop signed by the position of nodes. Example A2: If you find that it will be tight behind Bielefeld towards Dortmund, you just test the alternative route via Paderborn. Google does not only automatically change the strain version, but also ies the new journey time.
