Google Maps Features to Ease Thanksgiving Travel

These cheats could help save Thanksgiving.

— -- Google Maps released a few new updates this month that could come in handy just in time for the Thanksgiving rush.

Another subtle but helpful Android update: Tap the pin that comes up for your destination, and you'll be treated to more details about the area.

The small changes, which were first noticed by Android Police, come shortly after Google unveiled an aesthetic overhaul of the Maps experience.

Aside from the new bold colors and layered experience, the latest Google Maps also includes Open Table integration, making it that much easier to make reservations.

Let's hope the turkey turns out well, but at least Google Maps can point you to an emergency dining option if it turns out to be a turkey catastrophe.
