There is also another easter egg in Google Maps - if you press the '?' button a 100 times, a chime similar to the 1UP mushroom will play like in the classic Mario games.

Starting today, Google Maps users can unlock the feature by clicking the question mark box at the bottom right corner of the Directions screen.

Google has likewise urged clients to share screen captures of Mario in their Map via web-based networking media, so pay special mind to #MarioMaps in the event that you need to see the unavoidable screen captures of Mario going rough terrain when Maps fouls up, and ensure that you don't post individual points of interest on informal organizations.
