Get Travel Times Based on Traffic in Google Maps

Even though there are plenty of great navigation apps in the App Store, Google Maps on the iPhone is still one of the best ways to get basic navigation info. I especially like it because it gives me a good idea of how long it’ll take to get to a destination. However, in some cases it’ll be necessary to get travel times with current traffic conditions factored in. To do this, simply enable the “Show Traffic” option before requesting directions, and traffic will be factored in. If it’s working, you should see your estimated travel time followed by the words “with traffic.”

Bonus tip; if you’ve already requested directions but forgot to enable traffic, simply enable it, tap “Edit,” then “Route,” and Maps should recalculate based on traffic. Enjoy!
