Tips

The maps widget just might be the coolest widget feature in the Apple iPhone. Using it, you can find the location of addresses using Google Maps, and get directions fro one address to another. The maps are linked to your contacts, so you can quickly show the location of any address in your contacts on a map and then get driving directions. Here are twelve easy steps to get directions and travel conditions using your iPhone, taken from the new book, My iPhone by Brad Miser.

  1. To open the Maps widget, press the Maps button on the iPhone home page. The widget appears, and you can start finding your way.
  2. Press the Directions button. The Start and End boxes appear.
  3. Find the start location by searching for it or by using the Lists button to select it from a list. Finding a start or end location works just like finding any location. For example, you can use a bookmark, recent item, or contact information to set a location along with searching for a location.
  4. Find the end location by searching for it or by using the Lists button to select it from a list.
  5. Press Route. A path from the start location to the end location is generated and appears on the map.
  6. Zoom or scroll the map as needed to view the path.
  7. To see a detailed list of each step in the directions, press List. Each segment along the way is shown. The highlighted segment indicates which is currently in focus on the map.
  8. Scroll up and down the screen to see the complete list of steps.
  9. To view the specific segment on the map, press it. The map appears and shows the segment you pressed. At the top of the map, you see the segment. The map shows the segment with any turns highlighted with a circle.
  10. To move to the next segment, press the Forward button. To move to a previous segment, press the Back button. When you move too far from the segment displayed, the map automatically scrolls and zooms to take you to the new segment.
  11. To see traffic conditions, press the Traffic Conditions button. Roads are color coded according to available traffic information. Roads running 50 mph or more are coded in green. Yellow roads and running between 25 and 50 mph. Red roads are less than 25 mph. Gray roads have no information available. (Purple marks your route.)
  12. To return to map mode, press the Directions button.
