Google Maps Speed Limit Warning Feature

Google recognized that drivers often focused on the road and not on the speedometer. Eventually, it has created the feature to increase the awareness of speed limits. This is a built-in feature in Google Maps, which is available for both the Android and iOS versions of the app. It is seen alongside the other core details of the trip.

The Google Maps speed limit feature works by notifying you if it detects that you are surpassing the speed limit that has been set. This will let you focus on the wheel instead of constantly monitoring the speed at which you are driving.

As of now, the feature is not available in all global markets but it has been rolled out to India gradually alongside a few other markets.

Now, it will let users add a limit to the same so that they get notified. Notably, it will be added alongside the destination and other aspects.
