How do I use Google Maps?
Google maps allows users to search for locations.
Google Maps includes a “pin” tool.
The location can be changed by clicking on a map or dropping the “pin” at a certain location.
There is a “pan” option for navigation.
To navigate through the map, select one of the pan options to navigate North, South, West and East on the map.
Use the + and – icons on the left side of the map to zoom your location. Either click the + icon, click the – icon or use the slider option to zoom. Additional information can be found on the Google Maps Support Page.
