Picture the email telling you where you'll meet with your friends for the next mountain-bike trip. The address doesn't tell you much, though, so the next step is copying and pasting and finding an appropriate map in a bit cumbersome a manner.

Not so with Gmail. When an address is present in an email, Gmail links to a map at Google Maps automatically.

Similarly, package numbers from major parcel distributors are automatically linked to the matching online tracking too.
