Google Maps Will Provide Navigation Even When Driving Inside Tunnels

Date:

Google Maps is the number one go-to navigation app for millions of users across the globe; be it on their smartphones or vehicles. However, one area where Google Maps failed to offer its services, which, surprisingly, Google-owned Waze has done for years, is providing navigation inside tunnels.

Thankfully, that is going to change soon. It is known that Google Maps does not work inside tunnels, but with a new update, Google has updated the Maps app, which makes it possible to have GPS navigation even when driving inside tunnels. Waze supports this feature using Bluetooth beacons inside tunnels across major cities worldwide.

Notably, this feature is currently available on the Google Maps Android app. You will find the new Google Maps tunnel navigation feature by heading over to Settings > Navigation Settings, under the ‘Driving Options‘ section at the bottom. Do note that the feature is disabled by default, and you have to manually enable it to enjoy navigation inside tunnels. This feature appeared first for users in October 2023, but it seems that the feature is rolling out widely for everyone.
