New navigational methods

Users are alerted by speed cameras as they approach speed cameras and speed checks on the road, and you can now locate them on a map. Driving routes with several stops are now available in Maps on iOS 16. This entails that the user may schedule up to 15 stops in advance and that, when it’s time to go, routes will be immediately synced from their Mac to their iPhone.

The beneficiaries may track the person’s progress and see where they are. Maps keep them current and offer a fresh projected arrival time if something happens that delays them. By informing Siri that there was an accident up ahead or that there is anything on the road, users may quickly and safely report accidents, dangers, or speed checks on the road. Without diverting your attention from the road, you may also report accidents that have been planned and shown on the map.
