Ordering a Taxi from Google Maps
In Germany the myTaxi app allows smartphone users to order the closest taxi and to track the taxi's approach on Google Maps.
The free app locates the passenger's position automatically or can be set to pick-up from the user's favourite locations (e.g. work, home etc). The app then finds and orders the nearest available taxi and informs the user of the driver's name and ratings. A Google Map shows the passenger's position and the position of the taxi and displays the distance left and the estimated time of arrival.
