Google has rolled out a new update to the Google Maps app for Android that will now automatically inform users when they are navigating to a place that is closed or going to be closed by the time they get there.

While a seemingly minor feature, regular Google Maps user will start appreciating it over time.

The change log from Google about the update also mentions some bug fixes and the ability to directly search for car rental reservations, flights and hotels directly through the Google Maps app as well.

What’s New

• Receive a warning when you are about to navigate to a place that is closed at time of arrival.
• Searching for ‘my events’ now also shows car rental reservations from your GMail, in addition to flights and hotels.
• Bug Fixes
