To celebrate MAR10 Day (ie March 10), Nintendo arranged a collaboration with Google Maps so that people looking to use Maps as a Global Positioning System can show Mario in his go-kart instead of the usual blue arrow. After this, you should see the Mario on his Kart vehicle instead of auto while navigating the Google Maps.

To activate Mario Time, enter a destination and request directions in Google Maps. The new update looks quite promising as it brings a whole new live Mario to the navigation maps using Google Maps on your device. It will be available for a full week, says Google. While that sounds like a risky combo, Google is simply changing the driver's icon in Google Maps to a digital Mario motoring along in his staple red kart.
