    Now, we are at the Home screen.
    In my case, I have my applications arranged in folders, so Google Maps is in my Travel folder along with other travel related applications.

    The Google Maps application icon is quite colorful.
    It has green, yellow, red and blue stripes and patches. It looks a bit like a miniature map with a location pointed out with a red pointer. Each of these colors represents a particular type of location on the map, which you will see in more detail when we open the application. The icon also has the recognizable Google G. Tap the icon once to open Google Maps.

    It will either take you to the page you were previously on, or it will take you to a map of your current location.
    If it does not, and you are lost and unsure of where you are, you should ensure that your location services are enabled on Google Maps. You can see how to do this by watching another video tutorial on this website.
