On the subject of Google Maps, I think it’s time the app had something akin to tabs, so we can have multiple instances of Google Maps at one time. If I have a journey in progress, and I need to search for something at our destination, the only way I know how to do it is to stop the active journey, do the search, and start the journey again from scratch (which involves entering all the details again).

I’ve started getting around this by opening Google Maps in a browser tab, but it’s just not as good as the mobile app. Having separate map tabs would go a long way here: have the active journey in one tab, do searches in another, and simply switch between them without loosing anything. You could even use it to plan jouneys in advanced, then when you’re ready to start them, just go to the tab and tap “Start”.

A resonably elegant solution to avoid backing out of active navigations or typing things in three or four times.
