Force Close  ....and I'll form the head  1 star

This app used to be great. Now it just force closes. My ios is updated as well as the app. Takes me back to my early android days.


Used to be great  Peggy.stiller  3 star

I used to rely on this app all the time. It always got me wherever I needed to go on time and took me around accidents and other issues. Lately, though, I’ve stopped using it because it directs me the same way every day, even if there are accidents and/or faster routes. It wants me to get off at the busiest exit in my city when there are two other less busy exits that will get me there faster every time. It stopped giving me shortcuts and now I take my chances going a quicker way I know and hoping there are no issues. It’s really a shame that I can’t count on this app anymore...not sure what changed for them.

Good app  chouboi  5 star

Google map is the best guide app i’ve used


The app just keep freezing  azzz3llll  1 star

As i said above...


A good app but why can’t I rename custom locations?  Leroy_Dragonchild  1 star

So I travel a lot and while this app is nice to use some things truly frustrate me. For example: 1. Location is sometimes way off or will freeze/lag for no reason (I have full signal, good battery and no other apps open). 2. I can’t name custom locations, only label them which doesn’t always work. I’ll go into my favourites and all my locations/places are named as longitude and latitude. And I cannot rename them at all, only assign them labels which don’t show up when viewing favourites etc. Which means I have to tap each location to figure out why I saved it.

Google maps always gives you the short cut to the directions we all need to go. I’ll say it’s the second best app for directions.


The best map app  Dario1278  5 star

Been using this for years. They are always on top of updating for new devices. I really love the saved places feature. Use it constantly.


Won't save my Home location, and more  BridgeLover  2 star

I keep setting my home location, but the app keeps erasing it. Additionally it keeps reverting the "Save recent searches on this device" to ON, after I turn it OFF!!! I suspect this is maybe because I don't use the app connected to my Google account, even though I do have my Google account connected in other Google apps (Gmail, Hangouts, Drive, Docs, etc). However, I don't want Google Maps connected to my account. And it annoyingly keeps suggesting I that I do connect it! But I should be able to just use the app without signing in. It's very frustrating.


Having App issues  60peaches  1 star

When I open the app it just close can’t use this app. Very inconvenience, Very disappointed. How long will this issue continue

Really enjoyed it  Gracel Mc  5 star

Really enjoyed the food. I’m so glad i don’t have to travel to the city to eat Korean BBQ!


Wrong Turns & Turned Off Itself While Navigating  LVLYSNH  4 star

I have been using google maps from past 7-8 years, never had any issues till few months ago, taking me to dead ends, closed roads and back of the building. And recently it turning off it self while in use, please fix this. Thanks


Crashing at the worse time  Gentiana-Sama  3 star

I have used and loved Google maps for ever! However, lately the app has been playing an ugly game on me. I’m always used to switching out from the app, going to others (checking messages or even just closing my phone) and then switching back to maps. Lately (the last few months) when I try to switch out and back in, the app crashes and i have to re-enter my destination etc.

Can’t pre plan a trip through many US national parks in the off season.  Nope9  1 star

Want to plan a trip? Too bad, theres no work around seasonal road closures.

gmaps reviewer

Google data collection  gmaps reviewer  1 star

Constant bias to be routed to freeway even though streets would be faster. Many streets show red traffic but I ignore google and find that the streets have no traffic. Also, it seems like google routes me through neighborhoods just to collect more data. For instance it will have me take a round less and often more indirect route only to bring me back to same empty traffic free street I was previously on.

My location on the map seems to lag so I often miss my turn and have to go around  ZipNLA  3 star

My location on the map seems to lag so I often miss my turn and have to go around :-/

iPhone 6, ex-alien blue user

Failing as of late  iPhone 6, ex-alien blue user  2 star

For the past couple weeks, google maps has been failing to correctly locate and navigate me while I’m driving. When it does find me, it fails to update my location as I move and displays my arrow tilted 40 degrees away from my heading. I reinstalled in once, but now I’m going to switch to a more reliable mapping application.


Bugs keep on coming  csvirani  3 star

I have avoid tolls saved for navigation However when accessing the app option to go home via 3D Touch the route options ignore the avoid tolls settings I had to pay toll today not happy Plus navigation in tunnels loses current position all the times


The Best  !JACK!ATTACK!  4 star

I’ve tried them all and Google Maps is the best navigation app. My two beefs... The road closure data is not always correct and it takes too long to resolve the inaccuracies. It would be nice if GM allowed us to arrange the list of our saved places. I’d love to alphabetize them. Word em up!
