    There are some other things we can see as well.
    If we scroll up starting at where it says Leave my location, it's going to give me each different section for this journey. It will provide some information on exactly what to do, and it's going to give me the exact image on the map. You can continue to scroll to move through all of the sections. This is a really handy feature because it breaks down the entire journey into small manageable pieces to give you an idea of exactly what you need to do.
