QuickFind Numbers

Google Maps only gives a small blue dot to identify locations without addresses. QuickFind Numbers displays the numeric address assigned to that location so that it can be navigated to and from, even when there are no roads. This number can also be shared in an emergency or for any other purpose.

On and Off-Road
Navigation

IMG_2024When destinations are off-road, the app will provide driving directions to the roadway nearest the destination (yellow marker) while also displaying the actual destination (pink marker). The on-road navigation is the same as above. Google Maps ™ will navigate to the roadway nearest the off-road destination or to the nearest street address. It will announce “You have reached your destination.”

Google Maps ™ does not provide “off-road” navigation so you will have to switch between Google Maps ™ and QuickFind Numbers.
