Google Maps is rolling out a significant update for iPhone and CarPlay users, introducing speedometer and speed limit features globally. This enhancement aims to improve driving safety by helping users adhere to local speed limits and avoid potential fines.

The new features display the current speed and the speed limit of the road being traveled. The speedometer and speed limits are integrated directly into the Google Maps interface, providing real-time feedback to drivers. The speedometer changes colors to alert drivers when they exceed the speed limit, offering a visual cue to slow down and drive safely.
