Google Maps has introduced a new feature that eliminates the hassle of searching for ATMs. Now you can easily locate the closest ATM just as you would search for nearby gas stations. This feature is incredibly useful for individuals who require cash on the go and find themselves in unfamiliar territory.
We’ve all experienced situations where we needed cash urgently, but had no idea where to find the nearest ATM. Thanks to this feature, those moments of panic will be a thing of the past.
Gone are the days when you had to resort to online searches or asking strangers for the location of the nearest ATM. Thanks to Google Maps, you can now easily find and navigate to ATMs in your vicinity with just a few clicks on your mobile device. This feature is particularly handy for people who are in unfamiliar territory or those who require cash urgently in times of emergency.
How to find ATMs
A benefit of using the ATM-finding feature on Google Maps is that it allows you to locate ATMs of any bank, not just your own. This implies that if you need to withdraw cash but you are far from your bank’s ATM, you can easily search for and locate ATMs of other banks nearby. The process for finding ATMs on Google Maps is as follows:
- Open Google Maps on your mobile device or on your computer .
- In the Google Maps search bar, type “ATMs” or “ATMs” followed by the location you are in or going to. You can also select the prominent options that appear, such as pharmacies, gas stations, coffee shops or, in this case, ATMs.
- Click the ” Search ” button or press the “Enter” key.
- Google Maps will show all ATMs near your location or the location you entered.
If you want more information about a specific ATM, simply click on its icon on the map. A window will appear displaying details about the ATM’s location, the bank it belongs to, and the services it offers. If you need directions to reach a particular ATM, click on the ATM icon and choose “Get Directions.” Then, input your starting location or the address you wish to depart from. Google Maps will provide you with the most efficient route to reach the ATM you’ve selected.
Update as you move the map
The new Google Maps ATM finder feature offers a highly useful function that allows you to update the results in real time as you move the map. This means that if you are looking for an ATM in a certain location, but later decide to change your position, the results will refresh automatically to show the closest ATMs to your new location.
This feature is especially valuable for people who are frequently on the move or in unfamiliar places. By updating ATM results in real-time, you can conveniently locate the nearest ATM to your current location without the need to search again. Furthermore, this saves time and enables you to plan your route more accurately, which is crucial during emergency situations or when you’re in a hurry.
To enjoy this feature, you simply need to select the option located below the list of ATMs that the map provides. If you fail to choose this option, you’ll need to conduct new searches every time you move to a new location.
