Apple Maps strives to improve every year. Basically, Apple’s mapping service provides directions and public transport navigation. With iOS 10, Apple brings a lot of improvements to its mapping application that make navigating everyday life much more convenient.
If you have recently updated Apple Maps to the latest version, you now can easily locate gas stations, fast food and coffee along your journey, while making sure that you get your directions to your planned destination.
In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the steps to add quick stops for gas, food, and coffee to map directions on your iPhone. Before we get started, make sure that you are now running a modern version of iOS. If you have not already done so, do it first before moving ahead.
Steps to add quick stops for food, coffee and gas to map directions on your iPhone
Step one: First off, you need to launch the Maps app from your home screen and input your destination and start navigating the directions as you always do
Step two: Once you get the Maps Directions, all you need to do is to pull up from the bottom of the screen to access more options
Step three: Next up, you simply need to tap on “Gas Stations”, “Fast Food”, or “Coffee”. Once you are done, you will see all of the available stops along the route
Step four: If you want to add stops for gas, coffee or food available, all you need to do is to tap the Go button
That’s it! This is one of my favorite features, as it helps me locate stops for gas, food and coffee when I drive through unfamiliar territories.
Remember that you still can use this feature when you go through your local territories, so make sure that you make use of it.
