Google Maps is a great navigation app available for Android smartphones. It just needs your location information to show you nearby landmarks, public facilities, etc.

If you actively use Google Maps for navigation, you may know that the app saves all locations you have visited. It does so in the background and allows you to check all your location later.

You can easily explore the Your Timeline section of the Google Maps app to check the locations you have visited before. However, the problem with location tracking is that it also logs the location you have crossed while traveling.
