Use the controls below to help you control your route views as you navigate:
Touch Menu > Route & alternates. This screen shows you an overview of your trip. You can also select an alternate route for your journey from this screen.
If available, the current traffic conditions will appear as bands of red, yellow and green along your route. Gray areas mean no traffic information is available for that segment of road.
From the Route & alternates screen, touch the Alternate Routes button to receive alternate options for your trip. If no better options exist, you'll receive a "No Routes Found" message.
If this button is grayed out, this is an indication that no alternate routes are available at the present time.
At any time, you can return to tracking mode by touching the Navigation icon. This icon will appear in the lower-left of your screen any time you scroll the map or change views.
While in tracking mode, tap the compass icon in the upper left of your screen to toggle between a three-dimensional, heading-up tracking mode and a two-dimensional, North-up tracking mode.
Touch the header to show the next step in your route.
Touch the left or right arrows that appear on the sides of the header to scroll through your list of directions while in tracking mode.
The Street View icon appears while stepping through turns along your route. Touch the icon to enter Street View.
Additionally, Google Maps Navigation (Beta) will display a Street View image of your destination when you arrive.
