Mario is your new copilot on Google Maps for MAR10 Day

You will, however, have to consider your mobile data plan as Super Mario Run is a game that requires a constant internet connection to work.

Mario is unquestionably the most recognizable video game character in the world.

During your route, Mario will ride along with you on a red go-kart until you arrive at your final destination.

At the time of writing, despite having the most up-to-date Google Maps app on iOS, the Mario Day feature wasn't yet appearing.

Chip re-tweeted a clip of himself interacting with a little boy Saturday at the Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic. Chip adds that the only D name for a boy that he can come up with is "Dragon", which sends Gage into a giggling fit.

The gimmick was announced as a celebration for March 10, named "Mario Day", because "MAR10" looks a little like the word "Mario" when written down. This is just an animated Mario for March 10's "Mario Day", and your friends won't see your Mario on the streets of Sydney, not like they might see other Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

This new feature will turn your navigation arrow into Mario while you drive. "Then click on the yellow "?" icon at the bottom right corner of your Google Maps app on either Android or iOS. If you say yes, Mario will become your position marker in the app. Just do not forget to practice safe driving on the road-we don't encourage throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers in real life!

Well, this is some interesting news that you may not see every day. Tap it, and an enthusiastic Mario will be ready to start his journey. It turned Google Maps into a Pac-Man screen past year, while the position marker also became a TIE Fighter to commemorate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015.
