    Alternatively, if we have a password security set, we'll be on the 'Lock' screen where we need to enter our passcode, type in a password, or tap the 'Home' button with one of the fingers.
    This will directly take us into our phone.

  5. 5
    Anytime we have an application that we frequently use, it is recommended to place it on the 'Home' screen.
    'Messenger' is an application which most people use all of the time, because a lot of people have 'Facebook' accounts.

    We have to find the icon.
    It is a blue chat bubble with a lightning bolt. We do not need to have 'Facebook' to use this, but we have to have the 'Messenger' application in order to message people.

    We tap 'Get Directions' to see how to get to the location.
    The first thing that is visible is our personal location on the map, and we might get no driving directions under the 'Drive' section.

    We can tap 'Route' on other installed map applications.
    In this example, 'Route' next to 'Google Maps' is tapped as the application has already been installed. 'Google Maps' is going to tell us how to get from my location to the location of the chat partner. Directions to the destination will now appear. It will also show how far it is and how long will it take to get there by car. In this example, it is 8 minutes without traffic to get to Chloe, and 9 or 10 minutes by alternate routes. The shortest route is 3.2 kilometers, there are 3.5 and 3.9 too.

    Alternatively, we can tap the little walking guy icon on top to find a route for a walk.
    In this example, it is about a 40-minute walk. The distance is 3.2 kilometers. The time value might be too high if we tend to walk very fast. However, this is how we get to our friend's location.

    We tap the little walking man.
    In this example, there are no highways again. If we are outside of the major metropolitan area like New York, Washington, Chicago, or London, and if we want to avoid some larger roads and highways systems, then those are the options to check; and they will make our life much easier.

    If we are within the 'Google Maps' application, and there is a problem with our maps not refreshing, then simply tap twice the two arrows that switch our point of origin and our destination.
    This will almost always fix it. Otherwise, close the map application and restart it.
