Get “reminder to leave” from Google Maps

Google maps is to be the best location and travel GPS based app which is useful for travelers across the globe. Its easy to use and easy to modify on the go. However, a frequent traveler like a sales representative officer who have to visit multiple places in a day in a new city, a backpacker who have to 4-5 places a day in a new city, or a father who have planned an entire trip for his family for a week – needs to be reminded to leave out for the next destination.

There are many apps which help in setting up a reminder to leave. However, how about if you can get a reminder to leave from Google maps on the trips that you have per-planned for the entire day. Google maps on iPhone and iPad have a new feature which will allow you to set a reminder to leave for a trip. This feature makes it easy for busy bees to plan a trip in advance on Google maps, save it and get reminded 5 minutes before to leave along with the entire turn by turn events for the trip.
