FAQ: Google Maps Mobile Keyboard Shortcuts

Google keeps on changing these on us and even their old guide is a bit dated. I know that I use Google Maps often on my Berry so I thought I would share the keyboard shortcuts I knew.Googlemapsversion201

High Level
I – Zoom in
O – Zoom out
A – Favorite locations

1 – Also zoom out
2 – Map/Satellite view toggle
3 – Also zoom in
7 – Show traffic
0 – Go to current location

Move Map:
U – Move Map up
J – Move Map down
K – Move Map right
H – Move Map left

In Directions Mode:

I am still not sure what 5, 8, & 9 do but hopefully somebody can share that with us. Leave any other tips or shortcuts in the comments!

  1. Hey guys, I recently used this the other day to find directions for a friend… didnt see any options to email directions. I think we have that on our BBmaps, though I’ve never actually tried it.

    Anyone know if I am missing something when it comes to Google maps?
