The year s busiest holiday shopping season is already upon us, with tremendous deals to be had at every turn.

Whether you re angling for a new Apple Watch, a new iPhone 7 or even a new HDTV, there are no shortage of incredible Black Friday sales consumers can take advantage of at retail locations like Target and Best Buy.

Of course, one frustrating downside to Black Friday sales is that they often attract massive crowds, forcing shoppers to endure what can sometimes be excruciatingly long and frustrating lines.

At some stores with particularly good deals, it s not uncommon to see people begin to queue up hours in advance, all to ensure that they can get their hands on whatever newfangled device they have their eye on before anyone else.

DON T MISS: T-Mobile has some of the best Black Friday deals we ve seen

In an effort to save consumers some trouble from trekking out to a store only to be swallowed up by an unforgiving swarm of holiday shoppers, Google recently added a new software enhancement to its Maps software that lets users see how busy a particular store is in real-time.
