3D buildings already adorn Google maps by default while we navigate in the car with Android Auto
Improvements to a service do not stop coming. Google Maps which had promised us 3D buildings while driving several weeks ago. We have had little to wait, and the option, as confirmed by 9to5Google colleagues a few days ago, It is also already enabled by default in Android Auto after an update that, as usual, came from the server side and transparently.
Thus, the Google Maps app will allow decorate the interface a little more while we navigate with the car through our infotainment systems compatible with Android Auto that also improves practically every week with new updates that include new options, more settings and many optimizations both functionality and performance.
The curious thing about the case is not that 3D buildings have reached Google Maps on Android Auto, but rather that These graphics were already available a long time ago outside of navigation. The interesting thing here is that while the Google Maps apps show us these buildings in 3D when we enable the option manually in the settings, in Android Auto they have started to be shown by default without asking users first.
Maybe Google wanted modernize your interface a little in an automated way now that some manufacturers choose to go out to polish proprietary operating systems, some even based on Android Automotive, or it may also be that they have thought that This helps you orient yourself, especially in cities with very tall buildings. where it is difficult to keep your eyes on the road and even on a GPS route.
We don’t know the reason, but while the option to show buildings in 3D must be activated manually on the smartphone, the Google Maps app on Android Auto chooses it by default.
Be that as it may, there is no need to worry, because If you liked the old interface better without so many effects and more schematic, you can disable buildings in 3D in a more than simple way by following the steps we leave you below:
- Open the Google Maps app and go to settings.
- Simply slide into the menu and turn off the “3D Buildings” option.
Google has confirmed that This option will be activated in all markets where Google Maps and Android Auto are available, stating in passing that Android Automotive will also receive the functionality In the next weeks.
Some users have reported that in their vehicles only buildings in three dimensions work for them when they use Google Maps while navigating with light color palettewhile others say that at first the buildings were also displayed in dark mode.
And what about you, do you already have 3D buildings in your cars with Android Auto?
