Mario navigates trips in latest Google Map update

Mario comes to Google Maps You can now turn your Google Maps into a version of Mario Kart
Kayla Schwartz | 12 March, 2018, 20:46

To get started, you first have to make sure that your app is totally up to date. Mario is showing up in Maps for the festival of Mar10 Day and will stay accessible in the application for no less than seven days, as announced by MacRumors.

The new feature, dubbed "Mario Time", began on Saturday and has since been available when using Google Maps.

But lest you think this gives you permission to drive as Mario would in his Super Go Kart game, Google reminds people to drive safely.

To celebrate Mario Day (Mar 10), you can now have the famous plumber as your navigator in Google Maps for a week. Once updated enter the location you want to go and get your directions.

Deadly package bombings in Austin likely related, police chief says
Police said they have reclassified that investigation as a homicide, and can not rule out that the two explosions aren't related. Monday's explosion has prompted investigators to immediately begin considering whether the two recent explosions are related.

Once enabled, you'll see that the navigation arrow has morphed into "Mario".

Click on the yellow ? icon found on the bottom right of Google Maps app on Android or iOS. Google Maps confirmed via its official Twitter account that the feature will be available for a full week, so users can activate (or deactivate) "Mario Mode" at any time between now and March 16. "Just keep in mind to practice safe driving on the road-we don't encourage throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers in real life!"

Ensure that you have the most recent form of Google Maps introduced on the off chance that you need to attempt this update today. Granted, that's all speculative, but most Nintendo mobile games do change the formula of the original titles somewhat to accommodate mobile features. So, this entire week, sit back and let Mario guide you through roads and find shops and restaurants.
