Google Maps just updated their software to be better than before. Like Uber, Google Maps now collects your locations. It stores these in its database, making your travel smarter. It will not predict where you are going, offer recent locations you have entered, while still providing you with traffic alerts, and alternate routes. 

This type of data collection is new, and is certainly one that will influence our lives. For example, if you go to the grocery store every Tuesday after work, Google Maps will recognize this trend, and simply point you there  after work on Tuesdays. This new upgrade is a combination of Google Now, and Google Maps. You are getting the best of both worlds by having instant data, with a continuously improving mapping system. 

You will still have the option to put in the location manually, you just will have to do it less as your habits start to form on Google!
