Google Maps for iOS gains real-time ETA and journey sharing

You'll be presented with the option to share your live location, route, and ETA with your favorite contacts. The company today added the ability to share the progress of your journey in real time with your friends and family on iOS.

It has been over a year since Google introduced the ability to share your real-time location within Google Maps with folks you choose, and now the feature is getting improved.

Google Maps has finally brought ETA sharing over to Apple's iOS.

For those at the receiving end follow the link and you'll get see the current progress of the trip including destination, eta, location (obviously) and a few other details.

Ford GT order book is open...again
Successful punters will need to stump up a cool $450,000 for the 3.5-litre V6-powered carbonfibre machine. Ford says it received over 6,500 applications to buy the GT back in 2016 when the selection process began.

You can also share it across 3rd party apps like Facebook Messenger, Line, WhatsApp, and more.

The setting lets users share their location with specific people for the duration of a trip. If you don't have the update there's no use spamming the Google Play Store, this looks like a server-side switch. Plus, trip sharing works on iOS just in case you should ever find yourself holding an iPhone for some reason.

Have you tried out this feature yet?
