Maps App

Whenever you travel to a new area or a new city, you need maps to the key places or areas of your interest.

Today people like to use virtual maps like Google maps or check location on Google Earth. Over the years, people have been interested in maps that can be accessed from iPhone or iPad.

You can check maps and locations from maps app in your iPhone but checking it while driving is not a safe option. Thus, often printing the maps that you want to see is a good idea.

To make this easy for you, I share a procedure that makes it easy for you to print the directions you see on the Maps App in iOS 5. You can easily do it if you have a printer compatible with AirPrint.

STEP 1 – You should open the built-in Maps app and start tapping the “Directions” Button at the bottom. By your default, directions you want will start from your current location. The app will assume that you are driving a car but you have the option to change that if you wish to.
