Google Maps - Transit & Food Reviews


Buggy  David19999  1 star

Last couple versions have been buggy but this one is the worst. Crashes every time on open so is unusable.


Dissapointed  kkx1234567890987654321  2 star

It used to be the best way to get to places until the last update came, it can't find anything, even if its right next door...


Google directions problematic  houstonguest  1 star

Google says turn right on ELDRIDGE after I’ve passed Eldridge! Turn right on Polk! Really? Into one way traffic heading right at me! I don’t think so! Google is slow and ignorant! Driver beware


This stupid app  Rock'n'rolldude45  1 star

So I’m just tryna get to my places but like she’s got other plans so it really kills my vibe and I like to get mad at nothing so it helps kinda cause I can get rid of rage but I get lost in rage and lost on the road.


Privacy  SFMuniRider  1 star

Only one star because I don’t know if I can trust my privacy with Google Maps even with do not track turned on. Excellent app if only I can trust that my privacy will remain intact.


Recent issue  staphonya  1 star

For the last week, I have been unable to get directions to places that are in my history. The app just will not find the location or navigate me there. And then when I do a pin drop it gives me coordinates instead of the address. PLEASE FIX!


Great When It Works  DonnaG92416  2 star

Great when it works, but there are often times that it can not identify my location or the direction I’m traveling, even when moving, which is incredibly frustrating. It also will some times suggest indirect routes to my destination and not allow me to select the more direct route.

Max C 13587

Newest update makes it not work  Max C 13587  1 star

I keep getting “there was something wrong with your selection” on both my phone and iPad so cannot navigate anywhere. Please fix as I love and rely on google maps!


Lost search function  ctworker  1 star

With last release, I can no longer search for anything. I always get a no results message when searching for any category or name. I can type an exact address, but that is all I can do now.


Disappointing  gdmstsykydlys  1 star

I used to prefer google map than the iphone map to navigate myself but google map has been really annoying and prove it self to be a not reliable navigation app. I missed an exit and the map suggested me to drive like down the highway for like 6 miles even tho there’s a closer exit. Instructions for public transportation is also all over the place. Please fix it so people who rely on this app( like me) will not waste his/her time running in circles Thanks


Laggy  eightmegsonly  1 star

Latest version is incredibly sluggish, and takes way too long to load after making selections. Extra button press to get to the old overhead view. Awful, wish I could rollback to the old version.

Gold Coast resident

Very slow lately  Gold Coast resident  3 star

Not sure what’s happening but I updated google maps recently and it’s really slow during navigation and delayed in GPS tracking.


Lost  ellana_  1 star

I'm not sure if it's a glitch in the upgrade but the app never knows where I am anymore and yes, location services is on.


Walking around  streetdumb  5 star

Download map of area onto phone in wifi zone.And then can use offline -blue dot tells you where you are.Great in new cities,especially if you have a bad sense of direction!

Why can’t I hear the voice after the last update. Is there a volume control?

Special Agent Sunshine

Version 4.54: terrific app - please fix "OK Maps" option  Special Agent Sunshine  5 star

PROS: 1-Incredibly useful - you won’t need a Refidex ever again. 2-Update makes it easy to compare the time it takes to get to your destination using different modes of transport (though only after you pick a mode of transport). 3-Saves your search history, so it predicts what you’re searching for as you’re typing in a previously-searched destination. It also allows you to save a destination to make it easier to search for. 4-Tells you how much it would cost to get there by Uber if you’re a user. 5-I like the thumbnail preview and reviews that show up on some places. 6-An update has added white dots on the public transport routes to indicate bus stops. 7-You can save places to make them easier to search for. HOW TO MAKE IT BETTER: 1-When you put in a destination, show all the different travel-times for the modes of transport straight away, instead of showing just one travel-time. 2-If you type in “OK maps” you can save a map to your device to save on data - but you have to manually zoom in and out to find out how much you can save. It would be better if there was a rectangle that you could move around to choose what to save. CONCLUSION: This is one of the most useful apps I’ve ever used, and it keeps getting better. It’s essential.


Very slow and laggy  vanessaantoun  1 star

I don’t know what happened to this app, but now it’s very slow and laggy. The arrow doesn’t move with you. Very very disappointed


Wonky effectiveness of Google Maps  audio'connell  1 star

Google maps used to work well. However, in the past six months it has been VERY inconsistent in giving directions to the point on some occasions of not working. This despite nothing changing on the phone other than its regular updates and updating the app regularly. Very very very disappointed


Better than any other maps! Love it....  MaRuF98  5 star


اعجبني كثيرا

Navigation is not reliable  اعجبني كثيرا  1 star

The navigation is not accurate, arrow keeps pointing on different directions


Street view obscured; navigation slow  Zildjiancat  2 star

Help! After the latest update, a couple issues I’ve had: when going to street view, it’s now obscured by “tap here/swipe to move” yellow arrow and words, obscuring the street view entirely. There doesn’t appear any way to turn it off, and it isn’t needed anyway. It’s pretty obvious how to go down the street. Please consider removing it; it’s much better to see the street than learn how to navigate something we already know how to do. I always check directions before driving somewhere, and use street view to make sure I know the building before setting out. The other thing I’ve had happen every time since updating is for the voice to tell me where to go AFTER I’ve passed the place. She’s constantly telling me to make u-turns. And to make them where there is no place to make them. I often drive right past my destination and she hasn’t even gotten to the street I’m on. This is why I use street view to know where I’m going; Google Siri has gotten veeeeeeeery slow in her navigating. She’s also big on mispronouncing street names! Lol

Direction pointer confusing.  saipingchen  4 star

Hi google developer. I really like ur app. But when it comes to point the direction, can u change the existing icon. Instead of using looks like eye view shape, can you just use an arrow and make it dark color. It is really hard to find the direction with existing pointer. Thank you.

Thank you  JDS1042#  5 star

I want to thank the developers of Google Apps for the wonderful service they render to humanity. I’m from South Africa where I use the app to manage the traffic whilst commuting daily between Pretoria and Johannesburg. Using the app, I manage to cut down my time on the road from 3 hours on average to less than 2. At the moment I use the app to get around in Norway using its extensive public transport system. The app is fully integrated with the bus service in Kristiansand even accurately reporting delays of a minute or two! Using the app, helps me to relax en improves the quality of my traveling experience. All this at no direct cost to me. So, all I can say is: Thank you.


Update the app for pedestrians walking!  Sasifraz  2 star

UPDATE YOUR WALKING ROUTES!!! I’ve been wondering around for 2 hours walking down the roads the maps show me, and as soon as I’ve been walking for about a half an hour it suddenly changes, then I keep going straight (the original path) and I’m clearly walking on a walkway and google maps show oh no, there is no road here... it’s also a nightmare in the city where there is more than one level of road to walk on; so I just have to guess which road I should be on... seriously we need a better system, it’s 2018! This isn’t the first time I’ve been lost either, do something about walking ways please google... driving you’ve got it perfectly, but walking is a damn nightmare!


What used to be the best has become the worst!!  Moddmo  1 star

I trusted this app with all of me but it has now become the worst app EVER!! I have gotten lost so many times using it since May. I just uninstalled it now and reinstalling it hoping there’ll be some difference after this. If not, I’ll be done with it for good. Petrol can’t keep getting chowed by my getting lost!! I’m just glad I’m not the only one with the problem because I was starting to think it was my phone that was an issue. I just tried it after reinstalling it. I’m done with this app. Whatever that was done to it in May clearly isn’t working. It’s not locating me at the correct location. Let me know when you’ve fixed it.


No voice on iPhone  erdvark1956  2 star

Excellent app. More reliable on South African roads than Apple Maps. But the voice navigation is not working - not on our iPhones. Hugh frustration
