Mario Kart zooming around in Google Maps

Are you a Mario fan? Ok, so this does not follow the typical EV news, but who could pass up the chance to let everyone know for the next week you can have Mario driving his kart in Google Maps instead of the standard triangle icon. Nintendo has partnered with Google to bring you Mario Time for the next week, starting today March 10. Of course, March 10 (MAR10) has to be Mario day! Look at the abbreviation closely. Disclaimer; Mario still drives a fossil.

To get Mario driving in Google Maps.

1. Make sure Google Maps is up to date.

2. Launch Google Maps.

3. Enter your destination as normal.

4. Click “Directions”.

5. Click the “?” Icon.

This should launch Mario!

Want a fun Mario Easter egg then click the “?” 100 times.
