What speed does Google use for walking?
about 3 miles per hour
Hi Nick Graehl, Welcome to the Google Maps community. Normal walking speed is about 3 miles per hour – It does not adjust for distance travelled, nor for whether you are on a road or footpath. It does adjust slightly for slope – it decreases more for uphill than it increases for downhill.
