The Windows map app also shows traffic cameras


Considering the popularity of Google Maps, it’s no wonder that the Maps app integrated into Windows 10 suffers from neglect. Yet this app gets better with every update. One interesting feature is the ability to take a look at still images from traffic cameras. This not only helps you to spot traffic jams but also allows you to make virtual flash visits to other cities.

Open the Maps app, click on the Map View drop-down menu, turn on the Traffic toggle and tick the box in front of Cameras. Whether you use street view or bird’s eye view is irrelevant. Go directly to your destination on the map or by typing the name of the place on the left and click on one of the camera icons displayed.

Tip: there are particularly many traffic cameras in the United States and Britain.
