Google maps guide you step by step. You can know the total time required to reach your destination according to the traffic flow.  You also get voice alerts about whether you are going right or wrong.

    Hello and welcome to 2008. Actually Google Maps were introduced to mobile devices in 2006, but what we see now was introduced in 2008. That’s 4 years ago. It’s 2012. And you’re writing an article NOW to tell us about it? Really? I have another news flash for you… Apple will be coming out with a cellular phone 5 years ago. Better make a note to tell people about it in a few years.
