Google Maps AR update makes sure youll NEVER walk the wrong way again

It works using augmented reality (or AR) to overlay your exact directions onto the real world around you - using your smartphone camera.

If signal is poor, Google Maps will often position you in the wrong place, or say you're facing a completely different direction.

Pressing "Start AR" will launch the camera on your phone, showing the view in front of you - but with a small maps section at the bottom.

You'll then be instructed to wave your camera around, so Google's AI systems can get an idea of where you are - based on nearby landmarks, like roads and buildings.

Google Maps knows roughly where you are using GPS, and then the images you're capturing are compared to Google Street View data.
