As I've written about before one of the main features in 3.36 is the support for trip planning for public transit using third party services, as shown here from Paris:
We also support a few other areas for now, such as TriMet in Portland, Sweden (using the Resrobot API), and the Switzerland using the opendata.ch API. A full list is available on a sub page to https://live.gnome.org/Apps/Maps
Another feature implemented by James Westman is that the current location marker should no longer flicker when you have live-updating (e.g. when you have an actual GPS receiver on your device).
James has also implemented the first step towards a responsive UI that can scale to phone and narrow tablet portrait displays, this was finished after the UI change freeze before 3.36, so it will have to wait until 3.38
Oh and another thing, in these times when physical traveling is not an option browsing around in Maps application is another way to explore. And don't forget take advantage of the interlinking with Wikipedia from the OpenStreetMap database (Maps will show a link to a Wikipedia article for a place if available when you press the “Show more“ three-dots icon in a place info bubble). And if it's missing you can always add it yourself.
Be safe everyone!
