Pretty neat feature in Google Maps Desktop, where you can view typical traffic by day of the week and time.

Pretty neat! Slowly blurring the lines between Waze and Google Maps...

ETA: After reading how old the article is, I have a minute left to Modify or Delete this, I'm debating which one I should do...

So the feature has been available for years before 2012 according to the article's date.

While causally leaving out the second half:



I think it's useful feature, there are times when google maps will take what it thinks is a shorter router by a minute but in distance is longer. I find that it usually pays to go the shorter distance (obviously within reason).

Can i download directions for a specific route to have offline instead of an entire map?
What about adjusting the shape of the box for the downloadable area?
