Google Maps: Live View

If you still managed to get lost despite using Google Maps, augmented reality directions are here. On August 8th, Google launched a beta version of its Live View mode in Google Maps, which uses your camera, visual information from Street View and location data to tell you exactly where you should be heading.

With the updated version, when you hold up your phone to your environment and click on Live View in Google Maps, large arrows pop up on top of whatever is happening in real-time. The new AR feature also flags up street names and other helpful markers, demonstrating how to reach your destination.
