- Best Mapping App Available

I’ve been using Google Maps for many years and have seen it evolve into a terrific app. that I simply couldn’t do without. I have a very poor sense of direction and this app. allows me to get around the big city I live in. The most recent update now includes the speed limit of the road you’re traveling on. This was the only thing I liked on Apple maps, now Google has it too. I live in a big city and so far the Google speed has matched the posted speed and even changed when I cross over an intersection, then the speed limit changes. If you don’t like the speed limit feature, it can be turned off in the settings / navigation screen of the app. Offline maps are an absolute life saver for instanced where you travel to areas where cell signals are intermittent or weak. They are easy to setup and remove. So far, on the iPhone I have not had a single issue with this app., unlike the dreaded Apple maps that to this day, doesn’t always give me the proper directions, and takes too long to figure out when I veer off the path. Google maps, responds instantly, and reroutes you eliminating a lot of stress. In a case where you find an error in routing, if it’s reported to google, they will listen to you and fix it. Be patient though as they have to verify it, before they change it. They have a feature within the app that should be turned on by default, where you shake the phone with the app. open, the the feedback screen pops up.

- No longer user friendly

App used to be okay. There was a time when this app would give you turn by turn navigation, after you made a turn it would indicate the next regardless of distance, so you could anticipate the next set of directions and change lanes accordingly. A few updates ago they removed this feature for who knows why. Initially it wasn't a big deal because you could simply zoom out quickly to see the next turn yourself. Now they have made it so sensitive if you touch the screen or attempt to move the map to see where to go next it starts spinning wildly and fighting whatever you try and do to see the location you are going towards. For example you are driving straight and are going to make a left turn in 1 mile and the address is only 1.2 miles away. So you think “okay I can zoom out a bit to see if the business is on the left or right side of the road after the turn” WRONG if you try to slide the map further to see where to go it will start orienting itself in opposition of what you are trying to do. Zoom in, zoom out, and flip your always North facing settings for no apparent reason. Stop messing with the apps fundamental settings you are going to be responsible for accidents, erratic lane changes, missed exits off the freeway, etc. It is ridiculous and absolutely irresponsible to make such drastic changes in an apps basic functions that people need to use daily.

- Progressively getting worse

As someone else mentioned, the directions do not keep up with your physical movement. The GPS dot moves all over the place even if you are standing in one spot making it extremely difficult to get your bearings in an unfamiliar place. I may not know where I am, but I do know where I am not (...unless the men's fragrance section of Macy's has been moved outdoors and a block over). Adding to the challenge, the street names can be difficult to find. You may have to zoom out a significant amount for the one you are looking for to appear. God forbid you want to zoom out and look for something in another area. Every time I have tried recently, it just brings me back to the area I'm currently in. Using the transit directions prove to be equally obnoxious. There will be directions to "Walk" but no explanation of where to (no "turn left on X Street") so you have to rely on their map and faulty GPS. The public transit are very confusing and counterintuitive (perhaps they're sufficient for people used to using public transit?). I couldn't always clearly tell when a bus/train was arriving. Not sure what happened with the last few updates, as I have used Google Maps reliably on a number of past trips. I already hated to give my data over to Google but the frustration with this app on this trip makes it easy to try something new. I imagine orienteering would be easier than using this app!

- With the ios 14 update, Google maps have not been working for the last 2 weeks.

Hello! I am a professional Driver and have been using Google maps for 3 years. But literally the last 2 weeks have become impossible to use Google Maps. I even decided to write a review in the hope that the developers would hear me and fix bugs. I believe that Google maps began to work poorly since the moment Apple released the new iOS 14. Maps began to simply slow down, freeze, and turn off arbitrarily. Just awful! I am so sad and sorry that I cannot use my favorite google maps as before. Developers please hear me and Fix it. This is really a problem now. All of my friends are also professional drivers who used google maps every day - they all say that it is impossible to use Google maps for the last two weeks. I've heard this from more than 50 people. And please, the developers don’t t need to give advice such as you give as a standard for all comments. I tried to clear cookies, cleared memory, Google maps on my latest version, I rebooted the phone - none of this helps. This is what you have in the system inside. You just haven't made compatibility with devices on iOS 14. and I'm not the only one with many I spoke to - all the same problems. Please correct this. I really want to use convenient and reliable Google maps as before. Thank you for your understanding!

- Worse over time

Let’s get one thing straight: I love google. I use Google Chrome over safari, Google Calendar over the one that comes with iPhone, and for a long time, I used Google Maps over Apple Maps. Google Maps a year ago was amazing. It always knew right where I was, the voice notifications were brief and prompt, and the app overall was just easy to use. Fast forward to today. Maps only communicates in NSEW directions “Head East” (Who knows that?), the voice notification system is mediocre at best, and to say that Google Maps is glitchy is an understatement. I just went to a new city and drove my car around, and more often than not I was slinging my car across four lanes of traffic trying to make an exit that Google didn’t let me know I needed to take, or saying that I was on the wrong side of the road, going the wrong way or off the road entirely into the bushes (all the while I had at least 3 bars of LTE on Verizon. Coverage and carrier were not the issue). That was the final straw. This app that used to be more helpful was now potentially putting my life (and the life of my grandmother and friend) at risk. I still refuse to use Apple Maps, and have joined Waze. If the glitches can be fixed I may use again, but overall I am very disappointed!

- Routes are NO LONGER accurate!!

I have been using google maps for 5+ years and I love it because it’s very functional. However, as of this last update, the routes have been OFF. I drive to the Bronx from NJ everyday for work, which is about a 30 mile trip one way. I keep the app open with my route entered in case there is an accident and I need to quickly divert. There are tolls on my route, but I have the settings on “avoid tolls”, so I only pay for the GWB bridge or HT tolls vs the parkway/freeway tolls if that makes sense. Normally, my route is about 30-32 miles depending on which route I choose. After this last update, my routes (with the same settings) are now 66 miles or 77 miles to work. WHAT? WHY? The route suggests I drive to Albany or Fishkill (upstate NY) just to get to the Bronx. Any one who lives in tristate knows this is not correct. I toggled my “avoid tolls” off and the routes were back to 30 miles, however, it directs me to drive through the parkway tolls, which I don’t want to pay nor need to. Everything was fine until this last update. Now I am using WAZE because this app is unreliable. With “avoid tolls” turned on with WAZE, my normal route is back. Google maps has been VERY GLITCHY lately. Until it can be fixed, I’m sticking with the WAZE app.

- Lots of things to say...

I used to LOVE this app. But it needs a refresh. When I first got this, about 2 years ago, it was amazing. The integration with your Google account is very helpful. Suggestions are much better than Apple Maps, and I still think more businesses and places are on Google Maps than Apple Maps. That being said, now I’m using Apple Maps. Why? For starters, the colors on the map are very bland, and don’t show much detail. Apple Maps is just a pleasure to look at. The zooming in and out is not very fluid nor smooth, and when you launch the app there are simply too many pop ups, to the point where you really can’t see much of the map without swiping multiple things away. Also, integration with StreetView would be nice, especially since Apple has already built look around right into their app. So now I’m forced to make a choice: The pleasure to use, seamless Apple Maps, or the more reliable, clunky Google Maps? So far, I’m using Apple, but if Google can get their app working more nicely and fluidly, than there will simply be no competition. 4 stars for now, and iPhone users will simply have to make that choice for themselves.

- Not very good or accurate

Google Maps is helpful, probably, when one is driving. It's not helpful for someone who has to take transit or walk. Transit often has changes/transfers - there are no actual walking directions available that are helpful. If you're walking the wrong way, the app doesn't stop you, just tells you to walk to {location}. Also, some bus stops are very near/across the street from one another and Google Maps has a hard time pinpointing that. That's the difference between going the wrong way in a strange place or arriving at your destination. I commute to work but Google Maps only shows one route instead of any route, no matter how I change the settings, so I never know when the bus comes. I know when the trolley comes, but it only runs twice an hour when I am out of work and being able to see any kind of alternate route would be nice. I've also noticed that we have a trolley line that runs all the way to South Hills Village, but Google Maps just tells you to get off the stop before that and walk for sixteen minutes. I know better, but a person new to the area may not. I just don't find it very helpful as someone who doesn't drive.

- Better than iOS Maps

I guess I didn't even realize the difference between this and the native apple map. I switched to iPhone last year and was used to pressing a map link and it opened right up in maps. Well, apple does that too...but when I needed it badly I had to come download google maps. I was stuck in a delivery parking lot of a huge hospital in an unfamiliar city that apparently had one address for the whole campus. Apple's map made me almost lose my mind- "Turn right then turn right! Go southwest then immediately go north then turn right! Turn left then turn right!" It was insanity. I finally broke down and googled what I needed which prompted me to download Google Maps...And I was immediately given correct directions and found my medical office in less than 5 minutes. Now every time I need directions I find Google Maps is the only one that's accurate. 4 stars because it turns me sideways sometimes and did have me turn right off of an exit just to make an immediate u-turn when it should have just told me to turn left from the jump. Still- it gets me there which is what I ultimately care about.

- Almost perfect (almost)

For the vast majority of usage, this app has been flawless. The traffic is accurate, the routing is good, and the user interface is simple and easy to use. However, I have found some things to be quite annoying. For one, I have found that sometimes when I am in the far left lane on the highway, the app will think I am on the wrong side of the road causing it to constantly reroute me (this mostly happens in HOV lanes and high speed ezpass lanes). Another issue is that if I purposely choose a slower route because it is fewer miles the app will constantly tell me it found a faster route (I know there is a faster way, but I purposefully chose the longer timed route!) this is very frustrating, and on my last 2 hour drive it told me 5 times that there was a faster way and I had to take my hand off the wheel to cancel the change. Finally, my last complaint is that there aren't more alternate routes given. I’m lucky if the app gives me 3 options, whereas online you can drag the route to any road and it will find a route. Other than these issues though, the app is very well implemented.

- My favorite map app

Th first time iOS maps sent me to the wrong place, way out in the country somewhere, I couldn’t believe Apple had messed up. I sent Apple a message about what was wrong and expected them to fix it. Four times in six months I reminded them that they were wrong. Then they sent me a message that they had fixed the problem. I checked, they hadn’t. What I love best about Google maps is they tell you what lane to be in for the up coming turn. I don’t like that they only give you a two mile warning about your exit on the freeway/highway. If you’re in the wrong lane at 75 mph in heavy traffic, that’s not enough warning. iOS maps gives you more miles to play with, but that’s my only complaint so far. And they do show you an arrow so you can see which way you’ll be going, but I can’t see any of it with my sunglasses on. To keep slipping them down so I can see what’s coming and how soon while driving is both a pain and not safe. I wish they’d offer more info starting with 10 miles, then 5, then 2 or something...and do it verbally so I don’t have to play with my sunglasses or look down.

- So frustrating

This is a great map, it will show you where everything is, but’s it’s impossible to use on trips or custom maps. If you’re looking for directions without a custom map and for only one destination, this map is for you. If you create your own maps, need to look up multiple destinations, or are on a trip, it’s near impossible. First of all, I had my mom send me the link to our custom map. It send to my gmail, no problem. Then I’d click on the map, and it either wouldn’t load, or take me to Safari. The Safari view would show the map, but decline to let you get directions unless you signed in. Okay. I signed in. Well, it took my back to my home address, and sent me on a infinite loop, going from clicking the link in my email, getting sent to safari, logging in, and losing the map. I had to redownload the app four times before it worked. Second of all, the map legend isn’t interactive. I’m going to new york, and spent six hours working on a custom map, with a pin for every single place I wanted to go. i downloaded the app, only to find that in the map legend, you can’t click on individual icons, forcing you to leave the map legend, and click on every single icon until it pops up. Very dissapointed.

- Only sometimes shows the saved locations on my phone

I wrote a review a while back that the app no longer showed saved locations making it cumbersome to go to ‘home’ or ‘work’ since those saved locations do not show up in ‘recent searches’. I am very impressed that google responded to my review and fixed the issue. Unfortunately, the fix is not entirely 100% and the app now is rather temperamental about whether or not it shows the stored locations. It seems that if you still have a route displayed and then want to change it, the app won’t show stored locations but when you start from the map/satellite image of your current location, it will. Previous review: Used to work beautifully for the daily commute from/to work/home because of real-time traffic. Now, however, when picking a destination it only shows recent searches and not saved locations like home or work. It’s irritating and defeats the purpose of having stored locations. Yes, I do know the usual way home but the whole purpose of using google maps is to know the best route given the current traffic situation

- An annoying necessity

I have used this app for years as I am a courier and the option to put multiple stops is amazing! However within really the last year, development has gotten messy and far too often I see new features just tossed into this app without little thought about them being annoyances to the everyday user. Like a month or so ago you would hit go and instead of automatically starting your route it would proceed to tell you how the traffic patterns are normally and how it is now....thanks I could care less and I don’t need the extra step. Now there’s a bug where you hit star over and over and nothing happens so you need to slide that bar up which then shows you the traffic pattern times (really wanna shove that stupid feature down our throats huh google?) and then hit start. And now it seems to have issues finding the most common of cities saying it can’t find a way there. Best thing I can recommend is wait it out and once google has fixed all the bugs and things seem stable, shut off the auto updates for this app. They tinker with it way too much and you never know what the next problem is gonna be.

- Took me to the middle of nowhere 🤬

Let me start out by saying I hate google maps. Recently I had to go to a meeting out of town, almost 3 hrs. away. When it said I had arrived I was at a barn out in the middle of nowhere. I’m thinking that maybe I’m 10-15 minutes away and when I put it back in it tells me I’m over an hour away 🤬. It had taken me in the total opposite direction. Someone said maybe it said turn right and you turned left, but no it didn’t do that and if that had been the case and I turned the wrong way it would have rerouted me back to where I needed to be. Yes I had the correct address in. If this had been winter and snowy it could have been deadly. Another time I was going to a meeting somewhere else and that was a little over 3 hours away. I knew most of the way, it was just going into the area where I had to get on the freeway that I wanted the help with but had it on from when I left my home so I didn’t have to mess with it while driving. It kept trying to detour me off my route to what it thought was the fastest way even tho that wasn’t the way I wanted or was going. The so called fastest route had a lot of switch back turns. I wanted the straight shot. It was only 25 minutes difference. IF I CHOOSE A ROUTE OVER A DIFFERENT ROUTE I HAVE A REASON. DON’T REROUTE ME!!!

- One of the best navigation apps, but isn’t as great as some others

Google Maps is without question one of the most, if not the most popular navigation app. It’s worked decent for me, why, you may ask, am I saying only decent? Well, here’s why. First of all, I use Apple Maps as well, and that app will usually give me more convenient directions/routes to certain places. For instance, if I’m going to the mall and I put it into Apple Maps, it will send me the route that I’d normally take anyway. However, this is not the case with Google Maps. It will usually take me routes that rarely anyone would take to get to said destination, and I’ve found that I would arrive a few minutes later than I would have if I had taken the route I normally take. It also will sometimes glitch while I’m driving and tell me to turn at the very last second, causing me to either slam my brakes or completely miss the turn. This is very frustrating, especially on the thruway. Both of the issues I’ve talked about seem very fixable, and I hope they eventually get fixed and fast because a lot of people use this app and rely on it to get them places every day.

- It’s still the best....except

I’ve been using Google maps since it first came out and it’s been great, except for a couple minor issues. I don’t use it for turn-by-turn navigation, I use it to estimate my travel time based on current traffic conditions and to find an address. It does those tasks fairly well, except.... On my phone’s tiny screen I cannot read the street names. Thankfully there is a zoom feature....except...and this makes the app absolutely useless....the street names do not get bigger. Do the programmers not understand thats why I want to zoom in? To not only see the tiny streets but to enlarge the tiny street names? Another issue I have is after it plots your routing, it overwrites the street names with the blue route highlighting. To read the street names you have to switch between the text route and the map route. There are several other issues I have but the last I’ll discuss here is the inability to forecast the route like you can in the desktop version. I have to switch to my laptop if I want to know what time I have to leave in order to arrive at a certain time, but many times I don’t have my laptop with me.

- Updates are not necessarily improvements

Before your last couple of updates, I would have rated this app at 5 stars, but the last update has sent me looking for a new map app. Google maps used to be my go-to navigation app, but no longer. Markings for roads/highways are so pale now that they’re almost unseeable. Road names don’t appear until you’ve zoomed in so far that you can’t see their relation to other roads in the area. Before the last update, you could look at the U.S. or state map and at least see Interstate highway more. Once you move on to ‘directions’, the roads on your route are highlighted but you can’t see names of surrounding roads unless you zoom in to a point that makes looking irrelevant. I could go on and on. Your updates have weakened the usefulness of your app. Using Google maps is no longer’s frustrating. Wish we could ‘opt out’ of updates or at least choose the version that works best for us. I miss the ease of use and effective markings of previous versions...hope another app has incorporated features you have discarded. I appreciate the years that you helped me in my travels, but I’ll be looking for help elsewhere now. Thanks for the memories....

- Wish they would add weather

I love the feature that allows you to search along the route for different key words!! What would really make it awesome though would be if I could see what the weather would be along the route assuming that travel rate is kept constant. As extra brownie points, if they could add the ability to easily avoid weather by altering travel such as stopping to take a break to allow a storm to get ahead of you or possibly taking a different road. Showing the impact on travel would based on the decision could be similar to the way the traffic option works such as: “bad weather ahead, minimize contact with storm by taking a 10 minute break or taking a different route. Impact would result in a 20 minute delay. Would you like to take this alternate route?” If they could add the ability to set a speed alert, that would be amazing! For example, ability to alert driver when traveling at speed which is greater than 11 MPH over speed limit. Another helpful option relating to speed would be one that alerts the driver if the current speed limit is changing ahead and when it actually changes.

- Worse and discriminatory

I’m a Chinese native living in the US and I keep my iOS in Chinese. First, the app won’t let you choose which language to use. Second, it shows reviews of a place in Chinese first. For famous places like the MET museum in NYC, there are hundreds or thousands reviews in Chinese and I cannot see any reviews from people of different backgrounds unless I scroll for ten minutes, I guess. I actually feel somewhat discriminated by this sorting of reviews. Showing the most helpful reviews (helpfulness rated by other reviewers) is a much fair and meaningful way. Third, the Google Translation is imbedded no matter people complain about it. They seemed to stop translating English into Chinese now but it continues to “translate” Traditional Chinese to Simplified Chinese (my iOS language), which is absolutely unnecessary (99.9% Chinese speakers can recognize both ways of writing). Even worse is that in the last version I found some reviews are shown with the tags “translated” and “original” but there isn’t any content after “translated”; basically, it didn’t “translate” but has those tags, which wastes space that I only see “translated” and a space line before clicking the review to expand it. Google, stay simple! We don’t want Your opinion and interference.

- Love the new update

Used to have to click 2 or 3 buttons to start a route, now simply load the address, click start and BAM you're on your way. Very convenient, especially when behind the wheel and you get sent to a different job. The one thing I would like to see improvement on is when I get my schedule emailed to me, I can copy the address from the native mail app, double click and sometimes at the bottom there will appear a "get directions to -- in google maps". Clicking on that loads maps, but it always says "can't find a way there". I can paste the address in fine, but it would be nice if this would work. A big improvement would be if a press and hold on the address would allow me to press "open in google maps" instead of the native apple maps would be great. —————UPDATE————— There is a bug where when you save a location to one of your lists, then add a custom label, it doesn’t save the custom label. Clicking on the saved location doesn’t show any label added. Searching for the label works, but it very inconvenient. I add custom labels to places I go, and look back through the maps later.

- The Fall: Google Maps’ Descent into Chaos

Google maps has always been quite reliable in the past, but over the last few weeks it has been terrible about sending us the best route to avoid traffic. I’m currently stuck in a traffic jam caused by 4 accidents. There was an easy route to avoid this jam completely, but the Google Maps App didn’t tell us there was a jam until we were already stuck in it, high on a bridge to switch freeways. This jam has clearly been building up for a considerable period before we got the the place where we could have avoided it, but the app gave us no advance warning. Then, when we were irrevocably stuck, it suddenly had information about all the accidents and the extent of the traffic blockage. This seems a pretty unacceptable lapse in providing critical information about routes and traffic flow. Additionally, while it often chooses a logical route, there are times that it sends us in literal circles, ever farther from what is clearly the most practical path to our destination. This too is a recent failing. I don’t know the cause of Google Maps’ recent lapse in quality, but I hope it is rectified soon so that I don’t have to find a new map service.

- Fix zoom out/in on lists

Hi! I love the list feature in google maps, but I have one issue. I use the built-in Want to Go green marker on places, but I also have my own list that I call Actively Want to Go. Anyway, when I click my places and look exclusively at this list I’ve made, I like to zoom in on a neighborhood and click a place to get more info on it. Once I’ve read the info (hours, etc), I usually exit out of the place-specific info and want to see what else is in that neighborhood that’s on my list. Once I ex out of a restaurant’s info, the view zooms out completely and I have to zoom back in and find where I was. This is super annoying! Would really appreciate a fix! This is especially annoying bc sometimes a list I’ve made spans multiple cities in the US, and so once I zoom in and read a New York cafe’s hours and other info, I exit and then it zooms out and gives me a view of the whole continental US. This is super annoying! Pls fix, Google 💜 the only fix right now on my end is to avoid making lists that span multiple cities to avoid a large zoom out, but I think this is something y’all can fix easily

- I was in love.

I fell in love with Google Maps maybe about 7 years ago. It’s the reason I was one of the quickest pizza delivery drivers and why I’m always the one navigating family trips. I’ve been in Europe for 3 months now, and I rely desperately on my saved locations when exploring new countries. It was working beautifully until about 2 weeks ago (I assume with this new update), and when I was in London last week I was struggling to hit all the places I planned on because the map was refusing to show my saved places (my data is slow so I rely on Google Maps). I’m taking my last trip tomorrow and I don’t want to say that Google Maps is going to ruin the trip - but it definitely won’t make my trip any easier (like it used to). This is coming from a Google Maps enthusiast that annoys all her friends when she worships it (and bashes all other “Maps”). Please Google, fix this problem. I’m sure you won’t be able to for my trip tomorrow, but if my comment helps someone else, then AWESOME! And to the Google Team, I love you. Really. Thank you. May you get all the donuts you deserve.

- Navigation slow of just plain stops in iOS12

Help! Since updating my iPhone to iOS12, google maps is practically useless for me. The lag in navigation is unbelievable, if it works at all. Since updating, the voice directs me where to go AFTER I’ve passed the turn/street/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. And more often than not, Google Siri stops providing voice direction mid-way through a journey, instead making me have to look away from the road to see where the next turn will be. Very dangerous. I have preferred google maps to Apple’s version all along. Sadly, that may soon change for me if google maps continues its glitchy ways. If there’s a fix, please let me know!!! Also - that “explore the neighborhood” thing that immediately pops up and covers 60% of the map screen when I need to get directions is annoying, as it’s an ad gimmick that forces the user to do an extra step (swipe it away) before navigating. Get that thing out of there! If I’m looking for directions to somewhere else, I’m not gonna explore anything where I already am, as I’m LEAVING the area. Sheesh!

- Terrible

Google maps has always been my go to. I was on my way home yesterday from Florida to Tennessee hauling a horse. The trip down took about 9-10 hours and was a breeze. The exact same route home cost me 7 additional hours with a live animal to care for. For some reason maps decided on its own that I needed to go a different way. I didn't realize until it was too late that instead of heading north then west home I was heading north to the coast. I would have been at the ocean if I95 hadn't been shut down forcing me to turn around. When trying to correct the route the app wouldn't let me change the route by touch as it has in the past. I also got a weird different view of a car in a map. The app used to say turn right straight or left when heading out. Now it just says head north etc. I'm not a compass and my truck is not equipped with one. So totally useless. The app also doesn't tell me to turn until I'm right on top of it. THEN instead of telling me to u turn like it used to or saying rerouting to give me the option google now just gives me new directions. To say the least I won't use the app again that has been my favorite go to. Thank you google for costing me an additional $200 in fuel and 7 hours out of my life.

- Great...when it works

Google has a amazing knack for to combining sheer brilliance with mind-numbing incompetence, and this app has plenty of both. I use it from time to time because it does one thing extremely well, routing. Especially in traffic I find the routing to be the best and most reliable there is. Estimates of traffic times are very good, and alternate route selection tends to be quite solid and useful. No for the bad part. For whatever reason, Google (bless their hearts) cannot seem to write a functioning app. Through numerous iterations Google Maps has been plagued with very serious, frequent bugs of the types that will leave you stranded. The current version of the app freezes, loses track of your current location, refuses to connect to the internet for absolutely no reason, and is just downright flakey. Previous versions have had even more serious problems. (Some will recall the version that refused to navigate from the current location, rendering the app useless for navigation.) So try Google Maps for routing, but don’t rely on it for your sole source of navigation because it will leave you stranded. At least until Google learns how to write more reliable apps.

- The worst feature

Google maps has recently added probably the worst feature you could possibly imagine to an map app. If you live in a dense urban area like me (I live in Atlanta). The absolute last thing I want my map app to do when I'm getting close to my destination is to assume I know the rest of the way and begin to zoom out and rotate to look aesthetically cool or something. I'm not there yet! In many cases I've never been to this store/restaurant/venue and when 100s of places are in only a couple blocks of each other I don't need my map app to zoom out and rotate to look cool when I'm still trying to figure out where I'm going! I have to try to rotate my head to follow the screen all while I'm still driving. I have missed my location many times because of this completely unhelpful feature. This may be fine in rural areas, but this is a terrible design flaw for highly dense cities. It's dangerous and serves no constructive purpose, and is just a shallow attempt to look fancy for an absolutely zero functional or helpful propose. Wait till I am parked and not moving or have somehow indicated that I gave arrived.

- Maps counties to have offline issues

For the last few months even after reinstalling the app resetting my device network settings ect it still continues to think I’m offline and changes the end address to a “general area”. I deliver for Grubhub and when this happens maps will take me to completely wrong locations even after a few minutes when it decides to come back online airplane mode off and on will sometimes correct the issue but I still have to restart directions repeatedly and recently road work and construction has caused maps to try and send me completely out of the way of my destination by miles not blocks. I still prefer Google over Apple Maps or Wayze but if this issue continues i will just uninstall the app like I did 4 years ago when google maps was having similar issues with addresses and off/online maps and traffic. *would be awesome if like in Apple Maps google indicated stop signs and traffic lights. Also a lot of speed limit data is incorrect the other day the last sign I had seen while traveling down a road was 35 but google showed 50mph

- DO NOT update your Google Maps app until they fix insane and dangerous bugs.

The last couple weeks, it has been: verbally telling me to turn left while visually displaying a right turn, and vice-versa; unable to renavigate/redirect until 2+ minutes into your new routes, thus sending you in circles, wrong directions, off incorrect exits; routing me 2-10+ miles off the route it said 1 minute ago, and subsequently adding 10min-1hr to my drive time (I took what should have been a 3-hour road trip three days ago, and by constantly changing my directions, instructions, etc it ultimately added well over 1hr to my travel time); telling me to make impossible or illegal U-Turns as well as multiple u-turns multiple times back and forth; telling me there will be stand-still traffic where there is none, and vice-versa; sending me on to roads one street before or after the correct road, including telling me to turn into a cemetery 3 times in a row when I was trying to get to an auto parts store with a completely different address than the cemetery; no longer functioning or connecting in areas where for years, up until a couple weeks ago, it had no trouble connecting; and worst of all, directing me to go into oncoming traffic.

- Great Apple Maps Replacement in CarPlay...Except:

Everything in Google Maps is excellent. Now with iOS 12 adding support for third-party navigation maps in CarPlay, we’re now able to use Google Maps and Waze in CarPlay. However, there are two main issues. One, there’s no speed limit. This is a necessity and it’s kind of inexcusable that Google Maps doesn’t have this feature while Apple Maps and Waze (also from Google) do. Two, the voice feature doesn’t work at all in CarPlay. All the proper permissions have been allowed and all that happens when you press the microphone icon on the car screen in Google Maps is that you get the sound and the visual but nothing else. It sometimes says “No internet connection” and cancels, but mostly it hangs there. What’s happening is that it’s hanging there listening but it’s not receiving audio from the car’s microphones. I know that works because if you press the voice button on the steering wheel and use Siri, she hears and responds fine. Must be fixed to allow voice control or add Siri support.

- Recent update

I am an avid user of this app as I drive a company vehicle daily for the past 10 years, this past week I’ve noticed some issues. When getting close to my destination I usually scroll forward to determine which way to go to park on the right side of the street, but as of this past week this function has not worked. Instead it will turn around to the opposite direction, that being said I now have to use two fingers to guide the map to make that happen oppose to one finger. Second thing I’ve noticed is that once entering a destination and seeing the over view I sometimes zoom in at the destination for specifics, instead of it zooming with a double tap and drag it zooms to a random location along the route. I’m guessing these are new bugs that come with a new upgrade, hopefully these changes weren’t intentional because I find using gmaps to be way better than Apple Maps but if this remains Apple Maps has the same feature that I’m used having on gmaps and I’ll have to stick to what’s convenient for its intended purpose. Please fix this ap maps stinks I think, I should check that last update they put out a while ago.....

- Better than sliced bread

It gives you such detail that is amazing, one of the best apps I have on my iPad I not only use it to find places I need to be in it kills me a time estimated time that you will arrive, very handy. And the turn by turn directions outstanding I don’t know why you would need To use any other app for Finding a destination . Used to be hard to kind of find places that’s in the past we get to the right place the first time with the outstanding turn by turn directions. The only thing it lacks is to be able to see real traffic, I did one time was able to see real traffic cars that passed me in the cars that passed in real time because it only was one time I cannot get that optional more. What happened Google maps. I would recommend this app to my grandmother it sure does a good job thank you very much Sincerely yours Never get lost

- Google’s political agenda shows

What is with Google Maps and the continuous diminishing of the state lines??? It is getting harder and harder to tell where the state lines are, because Google is making the lines so faint - especially when zoomed in. Just Google doing its part to influence the masses to incorrectly see our precious nation merely as one mass democracy ruled by the popular vote - and to diminish the historic republic our nation was so wisely established as and the precious electoral college that our nation has always had. Hope I’m wrong, but is Google seemingly doing its part to promote the notion that the United States is a democracy instead of the republic that it is? Actual democracy is like two wolves and a little lamb deciding on what’s for dinner. A republic allows for the lamb to have a chance to save itself from the will of the two wolves. Liberty is a well armed lamb, to protect itself from the tyranny of the masses and the tyranny of the popular vote, where 50% plus one vote can simply run over and force its will on the 50% less one vote populace. The electoral college is one more institution put into place by our founding fathers to try to protect the voices of the smaller states; to prevent California and New York from imposing their will on the smaller states.

- Not the same map app it used to be and update full of bugs

The most recent update, 4.39, has more bugs than before; the map and spoken directions are often different, the map shows the vehicle sideways or going the opposite direction you are doing and the directions indicate you should be going, and it keeps telling new directions even when you are just continuing on the same route and following its directions. Two years ago, Google Maps was the mapping app to use, it gave accurate maps (showing and predicting traffic with amazing accuracy) and gave the best, quickest routes. Now, it does not show traffic on the map along the directed route and it often does not add the additional time for expected traffic until you have been sitting in traffic for five or ten minutes. Additionally, it often has trouble identifying where you are and what direction you are going. It has reached the point where the once superior app is not significantly better than other competing map apps. One positive improvement in the last few years is being able to search along your route for things like food and gas (including most gas prices).

- Need to disable auto-rerouting

I’ve been using Google Maps for a long time and overall I’m satisfied with it. However, there are two things that I’d like to see implemented: 1) Allow the user to select alternate routes when in offline mode. When in online mode, I can select a route I’m most comfortable with and not being able to do this in offline mode is annoying. I don’t want to be limited to the “fastest” route. 2) Allow the user to disable the auto-rerouting option without having to use the app in offline mode. There are many times when I’m not interested in saving 5 minutes by taking an unfamiliar route, but I still want to see current traffic and ETA. Having to fight with the app and manually hit “decline” to a route change is annoying and distracting. There is no reason why the app should need physical interaction from a user while they are focused on driving. Maybe allow the user to switch the default action to “decline” instead of “accept,” and add the ability to choose via voice control?

- It’s a very important app to have

Whether you have other maps including your iPhone or phone’s depending on the phone obviously; this is not only a fun app to have because it can show you more of the place as well as give detailed information to to even when it’s busy itself most nights and in live time. But it’s also a relevant app, leaving you the option from the beginning to see the streets and know the traffic patterns. Ask yourself what your email address is? I remember in 6th grade google was handing out only 6 invites to gmail as the only way to get one. Because they always give their best. Maybe you don’t have gmail, maybe you don’t like google but as far as storage, apps, the earth to documents, they’re and doing all they can and they haven’t failed me. This app won’t fail. Check everything. Follow the directions make sure to pay attention at worst you’ll have another app in case your default one fails at best it’s useful and very helpful.

- Stop trying to be Waze

I have Google maps, Waze and the Apple maps apps on my phone because a perfect map app doesn’t exist and I like/dislike all 3 for different reasons. We all know Waze tries to dodge traffic even if that means taking you 10 miles out to a roundabout way up a mountain and/or through the underbelly of a city you never knew existed. This can be refreshing or annoying depending on the situation.... whereas Google maps was more straight forward. Lately though Google seems to have adopted this Waze strategy of zig zagging me through neighborhoods to get 8 miles when an arterial road or highway IS available and NOT too backed up with traffic. Recently I had my boss with me for a ride along and I seriously think he thought I was completely stupid due to the funky ways we were going everywhere which made zero sense yet this was all the Google maps navigation. Honestly it was embarrassing. Please add a feature so we can choose if we want the roundabout or straight forward route rather than forcing us on these scribble doodles across Town which inevitably involve 4-5 left turns onto 5 lane roads with a 60 mph speed limit and not traffic light in sight. The KISS philosophy would serve you well here


My whole job is driving around the north eastern sector of the United States and Canada. Google maps tries to drive me around in giant circles when there is any Road construction, it takes me the long way all the time, not to mention it'll switch the address on me, all on its own, making me late for my jobs and causing me a lot of gas money and mileage. Googles monopoly is too big to fail, and so big that there's no way for me to communicate with them to tell them what their product is doing to me and my livelihood. Too many major glitches to post, but one of my favorites is when the navigation voice will incessantly keep asking you if you would like to take a alternate route to save three minutes, and no matter how many times you hit the no thanks button, the voice will immediately keep repeating itself over and over and over asking you over and over and over if you would like to save three minutes. That's not a choice, when it keeps repeating itself and asking to the point of making your driving experience extremely dangerous and distracting. If any of you computer scientists are listening, please at least fix this last glitch it should be a relatively simple fix

- Kim B

I’m writing about my current property manager Dawn Becker at American Homes 4 Rent. She has only been our property manager for a short time of the 4 1/2 years that I have been renting the property; but, she has been an absolute GODSEND! In the brief time that I have gotten to work with her she has tried in every way possible to help my family in our rental with any issue that has come up. Dawn has been amazing at going to bat for us with dire maintenance concerns that could not wait; however, without her help they would have waited and our family would have suffered. Dawn shows good communication, she is a team player, she shows the ability to work well with others in any situation as well as dealing with changes easily, she is very knowledgeable in every area that I’ve ever ask her about and if she ever didn’t know the answer she always got tight back to me. In my opinion, AH4R should train every property manager to be as efficient, professional, adequate and kind as Dawn Becker!

- Changes my destination

I used to have no issues with this but lately it has been changing my destination with no notification and taking me to the wrong spot. This is happening 100% of the time now and so I can’t rely on it anymore because it takes me to a random location each time. Over the past week it has caused me to drive an extra 50 miles and wasted several hours of my time. Not sure what they did to this last update but I’ll be finding an alternative now. EDIT IN RESPONSE: Typically I’d be navigating based on latitude/longtitude coordinates but it also happened when setting a destination based on address. I also found that it tended to send me back to certain locations repeated times as long as they were within a mile or so of the actual destination. I have no saved addresses so that wouldn’t have been the cause. EDIT 1/31: Yes, I’d be using Safari and a link that opened Google Maps with the coordinates prefilled. The destination would always be accurate for a few minutes but the route would silently change on me and point me to somewhere totally different, sometimes up to a mile away in a completely different direction nowhere close to the original destination.

- Google Maps, I love you, but...

By far one of my most frequently used, long-running apps. And now I live in NYC so have become obsessed with the new feature allowing us to label places as “want to go”, etc. My only complaint with Google Maps is its lag time in catching up to my location. It can sometimes take 5, 10+ minutes for the app to update my location from when previously used. My one *request* is that the app have more options to customize the pins! Example: when creating a new list, it would be helpful if there were multiple colors to choose from, rather than just having the baby blue option. This would help to distinguish between categories when looking at the map alone (rather than having to go and search through the lists). Maybe even allow for a custom-made option, such as using an emoji as a category instead of a color at all? This would be a total game changer and so improve my use of the app when searching for specific cuisines, unique features, etc.!

- It’s google trash

Just like everything else with google things keep going downhill (especially the search engine). Maps gets worse with every update. Worst is it never keeps up with movements and distance despite any change to any settings that google recommends it stays about 10-15 seconds behind. I ride a motorcycle and there is no way with the gloves I have to touch the screen. It detects traffic and sends me down a different route that takes twice as long and I can’t cancel it. When planning trips where I know the route I want to take and I set it to that yet googles mighty reroute thinks it can’t shave a minute off by sending me down side streets. By thinking it can save that one minute I end up in rural side streets and distant loops that end up taking longer. Over maps is terrible. Lately I’ve had to memorize the route before hand and keep the app off while traveling, defeating the point of GPS maps. If they fixed the app so it kept up with movement and basic direction that would be a good start. Then add options like “never change pre-planned route” and and option to not take traffic into account as much for motorcycles that lane split. Just give people a few more settings

- My review

I like this app. I don't drive, so if you do, can't help ya. But, I can tell you the app is wonderful at finding stuff in the area. 5 out of 5. Problems: I am a blind user and your app is almost perfect. One problem is on the For You tab, which I would love to use, but it wants me to select an area I care about on a map, which I can't do by any means. The second problem, most likely having nothing to do with me being blind, is when I have to press back to my location in order for it to measure distance correctly. Suggestions: I have two suggestions that would help me and possibly some others. The first one is for it to tell you the bus stop numbers. The second one is a notification you could turn on to tell you that your stop on the bus is getting close. This would be useful because not all the buses have the speaker system and even if I ask the driver to tell me a little heads up would be nice. Over all, this app is very wonderful.

- Google you need to read this.

I’ve been using google maps since forever! I cannot give them a bad review. Yeah, there may be and continue to be little details that many people may want to change and so forth but I consider it to be a great gps. Anyways I’m contacting google through the App Store to let you guys know that while I’ve been using google maps for work to complete my deliveries. I’ve noticed that the many places I go to make these deliveries the gps points me out to the incorrect locations most of the time. I usually have to go and find the addresses blindly until I can locate my customers location. I am not sure if you’ve sent out a driver to Lauderdale Lakes, Florida to update the street views and new developments. But there are many new buildings and older buildings standing today that google maps hasn’t updated on. Hopefully, google maps can update this soon enough. A lot of changes are occurring in this side of town.

- Masterpiece

Google 5.41 is a masterpiece. The display is gorgeous, the way you rate your trip at the end is fantastic, and it is still ole reliable when it comes to getting you where you want to go. Google is adding new places to its map services faster than ever and provides many ways to get there. The complaint list I have is small: Some old roads that are no longer available are still being routed through google maps. Occasionally the speed limits do not match either and it would be great to customize what displays you would like to have on at all times such as speed limit vs. your current speed. Also, rarely when you change direction after a stop, it does not pick this up quick enough and can be somewhat confusing for those bad with directions. All in all, Google maps has come a long way and I believe it is well on its way to becoming what we have all been waiting for and please: DO NOT CHANGE THE DISPLAY STYLE.

- Warranty Exchange - Incredible Customer Service Experience

Long story short. Went to Mattress Firm and spoke with Mike Paso about what we thought was a defective mattress (bought back in 2013). He explained the process. We followed the process, and within less than 3 weeks we had a letter from the company giving us full credit (from our initial purchase) to apply to a new mattress. We went back to see Mike and he was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the products in the showroom. After learning a lot and lying on several beds, Mike made our decision a well-informed one. He consulted with another colleague at the store (Catherine- and she was also incredibly helpful) and in no-time our purchase was processed with our mattress refund applied. Thank you Mike for your amazing customer service - especially in today’s world of “go do it yourself” service. You truly made our experience a great one. Thank you also to Mattress Firm for standing behind your products.

- Best public transit mapping & predictor

I can’t say if their public transportation mapping and predictions are the best in every major city, but I can attest to the San Francisco Bay Area, which is not very easy to navigate, so let a native save you a lot of trouble. Forget all the other apps because they’re never as accurate nor as intuitive. Google has more resources to notify within seconds of schedule changes, quicker than the respective government agency where the delay may be (ie Muni accidents might not show up for 20 mins on predictions, yet Google Maps will immediately notify you and offer reroute)So no matter where you are traveling from, forget Muni app, or 511, or BART, etc., just coordinate your schedule through Google Maps. I also recommend getting a Clipper Card. Easiest way to keep track of transit passes and if you’re not sure your schedule you can just load cash which is redeemable on all transportation systems (though obviously passes are your best value).

- I’m so disappointed with the app that used to be my number one.

3 or 4 upgrades ago google maps app started to glitch out. Currently the only verbal directions I get are the first one or two turns when I start directions. After that it goes quiet. As I start driving the blue location dot never moves, just pulses. After driving 10-15 mins I look at the app and the screen is still at my original starting point. I can manually swipe the top directions to the left to see want to do next but it doesn’t update by itself from that point. One thing I noticed is that at the bottom of the app where it tells you your ETA, time adjusts accordingly even though the map is pretty much frozen. For example if I look at the screen it’s shows that I’m still at my house but the time puts me 8 minuets away from destination. I wish I would have never updated because I use this app for work and I can’t count on it anymore to get me where I need to go without freezing. I have been printing directions and hoping this issue gets resolved ASAP.

- Please create feature to save/remember current trips

I agree with an earlier reviewer about the sporadic use of ‘landmarks’ in the directions, rather than using only street names. It’s weird and arbitrary. Then it switches between giving directions in feet or fractions of a mile, or sometimes doesn’t give turn directions until it’s too late to safely execute the turn. Sometimes voice directions don’t come at all and I have to look at the phone while driving (!) to see what to do next. Recently, the reminders to leave have not been coming through each time they are requested, which I rely on to plan my trips accordingly. Aggravating! My main frustration with this app is that it erases open directions if I accidentally click out of the app or into it from a Notification, or when I’m editing stops but use the < arrow to back out. I frequently have trips with multiple stops, so losing my entire trip and starting from scratch is INFURIATING. If there was a way to save current trips or retrieve them, that would be so helpful!!!

- I never imagined.

As a young boy with a wonderful imagination, I couldn’t have believed that today, I would be holding a somewhat small device used to make and receive calls and messages, play games, have email, Google for information about almost anything and explore the world from above, zooming in so close I can see individual trees, cars, even animals, through Google Maps. I just love the 3D feature, especially when viewing the city high rises, famous landmarks and natural wonders. I look forward to when it’s available in more or all places. Street view is also a great feature, particularly when you are looking for directions so you can get a visual of what the building/house looks like, as well as the surrounding area - very helpful.

- Great Navigation App!

In addition to the suggestion in my previous review below, I thought adding support for Bluetooth connectivity to the OnBoard Diagnostic 2 (OBD2) interface of vehicles would improve the ability of this app to recommend the greenest/environmentally efficient route and possibly also provide additional data to improve Google’s self driving cars. I’d like to suggest an improvement for electric vehicle (EV) owners and that is that in addition to showing one or more of the shortest travel time routes when displaying directions, it would also show the most efficient EV route (e.g. based on shorter distance, predominantly flat and/or downhill terrain, recharging stations along the route (being able to specify the EV range of their vehicle to assist in calculating when charging would be required could be added to the settings), etc.), perhaps in a different colour (e.g. green) so that they can make a decision as to whether they’d like to take the optimal EV route instead of the quickest route (assuming they’re not one in the same).

- Recent rerouting and mobile data issue

I’ve used Google maps as my number one choice for navigation for many years. I recently got a new iPhone XR, and have been having issues with the app for the first time ever. When I’m driving and using google maps as navigation, if I miss a turn and google maps needs to reroute, it’ll say rerouting, but never load the new route. I then try to force quit the app and refresh, but now my mobile data isn’t working at all. I try to renter my destination, but it just searches for a long time and then says I’m offline. No apps work with data, even a simple google search on safari is non responsive. I have no idea why this is happening. Please offer me a possible solution. (I also got a new GPS smart watch that my phone has been connected too whilst navigation, not sure that this should affect it, but thought I’d give you all information to help me solve the problem) Thank you in advance.

- Why “fix” something that wasn’t broke?!

When Apple maps recently changed from listing street names to referring to local streets by interstate highway numbers (useful for interstate travel only since many streets of different name have the same number!!) I made the switch to google maps, only to find out that day google had also changed to doing the same thing! I’m not sure if this is already restored to names, but if not please do not. In USA you might refer to highway numbers but not here for regular drivers! Also I can’t even tell which one is the route line amongst the multitude of traffic coloured lines and road lines. The route gets lost among the other lines as it is indistinguishable at quick glance. I spend my time trying to figure out the map instead of watching the road. I am bewildered how you could make a great product worse except on purpose. No one would make these changes except as sabotage that is how bad they are. Who is responsible for this? *Sigh*

- Improvements for Apple Car Play

Maps on apple car play are not as good as mobile’s actual screen. Especially for size, color and touch sensitivity. Please provide option to manually disable maps going to car play screen. Also do not block phone screen with map directions as we need to use it for other phone apps & functions. When I switch to other app on iPhone screen, the map on apple car play also disappears. Please fix that. It will be good to have maps continue displaying on car play screen while we switch apps on mounted iPhone in car. Another good feature suggestion is to use phone’s accelerometer to measure sudden breaking & acceleration to help and improve driving habits.

- Bugs and inaccuracy

Application occasionally requires re-starting to be able to calculate a route, as it reports non-existent routes until it is restarted. Directions to inaccurate destinations (House numbers) - example: A business name search is accurate, but when I search for the street address of the same business, sometimes the application provides directions to a completely different location, usually along the same street, which means the street number register is incorrect. Dictation doesn’t work and switches off while spoken to in the middle of a sentence or even half way through uttering a word while no pause was made between the words. Attempted to dictate this review as well but had to type it in manually as the listening Mode always switched off after the first second even without a significant gap between the words.

- As good as it gets?

I have an Apple Watch and would dearly like to be able to use Google Maps on the watch. This is not because Apples native Maps app doesn't work, it works very well and the directions given on the watch are terrific especially on my bike but most people and web sites I know tend to send me map references from Google maps. This means I either need to look up the locations again or use my iPhone rather than my watch. I don't need to see a map, that is impractical, all I need is the audio and visual prompts to turn, which direction, where and when.

- Google maps

Very disappointed in maps lately. When I press start to a journey nothing happens. The blue arrow sits in middle of screen and it doesn’t move. Doesn’t give me directions verbal or otherwise. Yes. Still experiencing same problem. I set the route. Press start and there’s no voice directions and the blue arrow just sits there. It’s as if it’s lost reception but there is reception on my phone. It used to work every time but now it hardly ever works. I don’t like apple maps. Come on google. Fix whatever is the problem. Also a lot of the time when I put in an address it just comes up with preview at the bottom instead of start. Why???? I have to get out of the app go back in and set again. This is really annoying. I’ve always relied on google maps because it gives me options on routes. I have maps on my car but I can’t zoom in to see the options.

- Distractions

With all of the distractions these days, it appears that google encourages users to look at their phones whilst on the move. Whether it be driving or walking, many people are encouraged not to watch where they are going whilst using their phones as portrayed in the graphics where two young people have smiles on their faces as they walk along on the phone. Would it not be better to have a video showing the advances of technology by having the phone talking to them whilst they are watching where they are going? I’m sure in a news article stating that they were on the phone when they were struck and killed by a motorist coming around a corner would not only wipe that smile off their faces but mentally scar that driver who was innocently travelling but also sadden the families of those pedestrians.

- Street name please?

Made the switch back to Google Maps as Apple Maps simply isn’t reliable enough. However two things that bug me to no end here. Number one: I am legally blind and use pinch to zoom a lot, a feature that is at large being left behind as multitouch gestures become more advanced, and when I zoom in and move the focus the app will zoom in further of its own volition. Second, and Apple Maps does this too: I could course all the way from Albert St X Plenty Road to the Plenty Road’s northern extremity without seeing its street name. So frustrating! Furthermore option buttons for directions could be bigger and the whole app could be a bit easier on the eye like it used to be five years ago. Overall in spite of its minor quibbles Google Maps has the edge.

- Please add Sri shortcuts to google maps

Just installed iOS 12.0.1 and Siri instructions does not open Google maps any more. I need to use Siri when I am driving. Please fix issue below. Please refer to apple support response below. I have just received feedback from my Engineers who have advised as follows As of now Google Maps is not compatible with Siri. However you can open the Google Maps app using Siri. You can’t ask Siri to open a location in Google Maps. With introduction of Shortcuts app, we can add custom Siri shortcuts to certain apps that support it. However Google Maps does not support Siri Shortcuts yet. You can reach out to Google Maps support and provide feedback to them so that they add Siri Shortcuts support in the future.

- Doesn’t like iPhones much

So... after several intrepid and unanticipated adventures into the backstreets of random suburbs in cities I barely know, some of them where no law abiding soul dares tread, and apparently Google maps is totally cool with that, I think I can safely say this app doesn’t like my iPhone much. In fact, judging from the number of problems reported by iPhone 6/7/8 users, i don’t think the app likes any iPhone much anymore. This has been persisting since June 2019, in an era where no one had heard the word corona. I’ve been holding out for an update that fixes this, but another hour detour later, I’m going to have to let this one go. Dear Google, loved your app, please fix it. It’s giving me random, indirect routes that are inaccurate. Sometimes it also doesn’t realise I’ve turned off a road I’m several hundred metres passed it.

- Update has ruined it - switching to Waze

Have been a big user for years of this app. It was always better than Apple Maps but the update has made me want to switch to the new upcoming app Waze. Changes to the app that weren’t required and are now annoying: - instead of showing my home and work addresses on the home screen, it now lists restaurants etc that I don’t care about. I use it to check traffic for my commute not go out, I now have added steps every time I use the app - no longer shows other routes, just tollways. I live 60-90 mins from work. I want to know the quickest way not the most expensive. - the arrow no longer knows which way is up and the blue dot is broken/missing. It used to take a minute to orientate itself but now I work it quicker than my phone. - Also annoying is the now convoluted start sequence. You’ve made it more complex than it was. Not useful when driving, more of a distraction. - AND why so slow all of a sudden? I had started to use the audio instructions when driving late at night and they have become delayed making me miss turns etc. * all of the above with a brand new phone and up to date software. A reversal of some of these ‘upgrades’ is required or me and I’m sure many others will be switching to Waze.

- Excellent, but needs a few more tweaks to be truly exceptional

Maps desperately needs the ability to better manage multiple destinations - give me distances and times for each trip leg, and the ability to plan and save such journeys. Many's the time I've set up five or so destinations, then Maps crashes or closes for whatever reason (often because my phone is trying to do five things at once, but that's the nature of phones these days) and then I have to redo the entire trip again from scratch. Also a live speedometer and overspeed warning would be great, and a reason to ditch my other GPS app (HereWeGo maps). Almost everything else about the app is wonderful.

- After using everyday for a month...

There are a few things that drive us crazy. 1. When carefully using your fingers to look around it will just scoot 100km in one direction, forcing you to centre view and start again. 2. You can’t EASILY change from maps to satellite WHEN in a navigation. The layers option disappears behind a more complex settings menu. Using satellite maps as a co-driver can be important in foreign countries to determine wether it’s a bridge or a ferry. Or generally provide more useful data when exploring foreign/remote areas. 3. Road closed. We navigated 5 hours south in Norway, to find a road closed sign and have to drive 3 hours north to begin the detour. Had we used Waze/Apple maps, we would have known in advance. (Had been closed for 5 months...) 4. When you manually start manipulating the map to look around, you click on put north up, you will find yourself fighting the auto rotate or zoom. Arghh. Otherwise it’s an amazing tool, with a world of information. But for such a big company the UI could still use some work, there’s no reason why this shouldn’t be perfect!

- Please add the Route Option or avoid toll at the bottom

Please add the route option at the bottom when you start the navigation where we have “ Search along route, Preview Route Direction and Setting” I drive Uber and most of other drivers that I know have the same problem when they want to “avoid toll” as per customers request it takes a lot to access the “Route Option” and it’s not safe too to go all the way back to press Exit-Directions-press three dots - Route Option then avoid the toll!!

- Fuel and toilet buttons on route pls

Google maps is always my favourite map ap... however this latest down load is EXTREMELY slow to load, almost unusable :( I would like to see a quick find buttons for local fuel (finally found!) and public toilets while on a route. Even better, how about more- some! non commercial options; Historic sites, public parks, state/national parks, museums, tourist information. Yes that's a long list, how about making the current list editable (fastfood /ATMs are all available at fuel stops- as much as toilets are). And why is it.. when I'm adding a "missing place" there is NO category for a park (picnic spot/rest spot/grassy area) or public rest rooms??!! Only commercial options?

- Good but bad as well.

3 stars is because it’s free, but only 3 stars because it has a lot of bugs. A lot means a lot of bugs. Sometimes it doesn’t show you the most accurate road, while waiting at a red light sometimes it keeps on moving on its own and you get confused that where you were. The accuracy and speed of the lady saying where to turn or go is not good either. For ex, it happened to me, I’m driving down a 2 lane road where at the end 1st lane goes straight and the 2nd says left only, when I reached the end of the lane 2nd lane maps says go straight and when there’s a lot of traffic it’s really hard to change lanes. It’s a good app, but sometimes it’s really ridiculous.

- Small correction please.

I would like to ask the developers if possible to change the option when the gps offer a faster route instead of say no thanks should be yes thanks. Instead of the gps ask “ if you want to continue on your route “ should ask “ would you like the new way” I ride a bike and I can’t be taping the screen when the map decide to modify the route I set up since the beginning. But today I have to stop several times because the gps change my way and isn’t very friendly on a bike where you just follow the voice directions. Thanks for your help.

- Unintelligible

In settings/navigation there are options for the voice navigation system however there is no option to have the app speak in the language of the region. This means that it attempts to speak French place names in mangled English to me, and I have no idea what on earth it’s trying to say half the time. This makes the app on usable. Instructions for changing the language of the app say I must do it in the web version. So I logon there and change (after a lot of mucking around, since it keeps referring me back to this app Without asking me!) my language to French, which is a bit inconvenient since I don’t want searchResults in French, but it’s worth a try. However this doesn’t change the app it seems.

- Issue with navigation when using Work or Home quick access buttons

Overall I love Google Maps, but hoping developers are regularly checking reviews & can fix a problem I’ve encountered. I’ve recently started trying to use the Work & Home quick launch navigation buttons on the Drive screen, but have found the app doesn’t track my progress & update the route if I deviate from the suggested course. I’ve gone back to selecting “Home” from my saved list (not sure why the app behaves differently), so that the app tracks my progress & provides updated route suggestions.

- Better than Apple - needs a small design tweak

Better than Apple's maps. But you probably already know that by now Small suggestion As a designer I think Google's team have done a marvelous job at making all their app icons & apps look consistent and uniform. In contrast Apple's own app icons & apps look like they are all made by different companies. However there is only 2 standouts in the Google apps I currently have. Google maps & Google Street view are the only ones that don't have simple icons centred on white background.

- Good ap

This is a good ap but could be improved by including an option for when you begin your journey, or at any time you request it, it tells you the entire route to take as you drive. If you are familiar with the area, it just gives you a rundown of roads to use and where to turn off so you have a basic idea of where you’re going without having to listen out as you approach the road you’re supposed to turn down. Basically just a spoken overview option from the start.

- Poor navigation, directions all over the place

For the past 6 months I’ve had numerous issues with the app. It will load properly and even show the correct GPS location. So I enter an address to navigate too from my current address, The address I want the goto will display but as soon as I click “go” to show me the way it will give the complete wrong information, the GPS is way off and it doesn’t keep updated as I drive along the route. This happens repeatedly and sometimes improves after about 5 minutes but by that time I am already a fair way to the destination so it’s a waste of time. This keeps happening despite keeping the app upto date. Very disappointing

- Correct your street name for us please.

The street I live in is called Moreton Street in Warrnambool Victoria Australia. You have it named as McGinness Way. The street before ours is McGinness Way. It is so confusing when trying to tell people our address They google it and they always go to the wrong street. What is worse, the mail or courier gets it wrong as well and we don’t end up getting our parcels. I use google maps al the time and enjoy your app, but this is so frustrating. Please, please fix this for us.

- Google Maps iPhone App

Despite all of the good things that one usually expect when using a Google product, this one has (at least) one little annoyance; when you just want to view the map, no headers, search bar, bottom panel etc, you used to be able to tap anywhere on the map and all of that stuff would go away, tap again to bring it back. Now, it doesn’t seem to be so simple. Every time you tap anywhere on the map it either brings up an info panel about a particular location, building or business you happen to have tapped on, or it drops a pin and brings up the info panel for the dropped pin. Sometimes, somehow, very randomly, you can get all of that stuff to go away, however I’ve not been able to learn what combination of taps / situation makes this work. Would be nice to have this feature back, solid, working the way it used to, because apparently I use it quite a bit, since this is now annoying me enough to write a review about the app...

- Needs earlier turn warnings and less right turns

For some reason google maps doesn't warn you when you need to turn until it's far too late and you can't possibly get in the correct lane, it needs an additional warning for turns earlier. Also for some reason it's obsessed with taking routes that involve right turns onto main roads with no lights, google maps really needs to correctly weight the fact that some roads are impossible to turn right onto during busy traffic hours and come up with better routes. Until google fixes these problems I really can't recommend google maps as it's more likely to get you lost or in an accident than it is to get you to your destination

- A bug

When I have been using the app lately my screen brightness keeps going really dull and I can’t turn it up! I still give it 5 stars as it’s my favourite navigation app and I think someone jealous out there has created a bug! I feel really gaslit because as soon as I close the app my brightness goes right back up too! So dangerous because I’ve had to pick up my phone several times while driving to see where I’m going!! Hope you guys find the issue!!

- CarPlay Version can’t be disabled

This app’s CarPlay version is out, which is great. But there’s a major bug! I can’t turn it off by removing it from the CarPlay apps. The reason I don’t want it on the CarPlay screen is 1) gesture control (pinch to zoom, etc) is not available on my CarPlay screen 2) my CarPlay screen is not on my eye level, I prefer to use the navigation through the phone mounted in the car. There should be an option to turn it off from CarPlay, and/or have a setting to display the map instead of turn by turn text directions on the phone while it is plugged into the car. Please fix this ASAP.

- Australia doesn’t use routes

This is a great little app, reasonably reliable and gives you the ability to customise whether you wish to avoid toll ways, ferries and motorways. The problem I have had with it lately though is that in Australia we don’t use the route numbers. Most roadway signs also don’t include them. So navigating without seeing the street names is a pain sometimes unless you are familiar with the route or only pay attention to the directions. An otherwise minor complaint that would be nice to have in a good app.

- How did we ever live BG ( before Google maps)

The genius (es) who created Google maps app deserves a bronze statue in every major city. Not only we don’t get lost in a maze of back alleys of large metropolises anymore, now every two bit town has all its dusty streets proudly displayed on every phone, and in full color no less. The excuse “I did not come because I got lost on the way” is now well and truly dead. As are the majorly annoying over the phone directions of “the quickest way to get here “.

- MY Plan Manager

If you need assistance with NDIS budgeting, MY Plan Manager is the way to go. Get the app on your phone and you can see exactly where your budget money is going. That’s helpful. Also the reimbursements come through to your account really quickly, 2 days, which is great when you have paid money for a service. They always ring back in a timely manner if you have a question. No question is too difficult for them. I recommend this service.

- Annoying update

If I don’t exit the map but go back to the home screen of my phone it has a blue banner at the top telling me that Maps is still running. This is extremely annoying because on certain other apps that I use dozens of times per day it obscures some of the info on the screen. So now I have to exit map and then go back and restart every time. Being a courier this is a major issue. I will now have to buy a second phone just to use google maps so I can keep my other phone free to use other apps without the blue banner covering everything important

- Best navigation app out there!!

I have been using google maps for year now and it just keeps getting beta. I love the fact that I can add stop. I love the fact that I can look up a destination get it to show me what time I will arrive if I left at a certain time or what time I have to leave if I want to arrive at a certain time or day. I use it everyday going to work and it will give me alternative route if it detects extra traffic. Thank you google for this great app!

- Should be sued

Your app is #1 in Navigation but a recent update has the possibility to cause serious danger to drivers on the road. By including the speed limit indicator means drivers will see this and assume that’s the speed limit if they haven’t seen a road sign yet. I was using Google maps and ‘90’ came up on the map while on an open road. So after I was pulled up by a police car for going 20 kms over the speed limit. To my shock it was a 70 km zone! Now charged with a $200 fine and 4 demerits I’m bringing this to your attention because someone like me getting a speeding ticket is nothing compared to what could happen. If the speed limit is not accurate on the app then it seriously shouldn’t be there.

- Google maps review

Google maps could be improved by having the ability to allow the selection of a holiday route that takes in points of interest for tourists such as waterfalls, museums, lakes, beaches, lookouts Google maps could also be improved by allowing the user to select towns, cities, or other destinations that may be between the start and end point of the trip Overall google maps is excellent

- Who did what to the directions?

I don't know what's happened recently, but someone has re written something. The routes google maps send me now are crazy! They make no sense whatsoever! Like get off the freeway to spend an extra half hour in peak hour traffic, or get off the highway and go through 40 roundabouts and weave through tons of traffic, just to rejoin the same road 500m up the road. I may be exaggerating a bit for effect, but absolutely frustrating, if only Siri was listening, she would blush at the profanity that comes out of my mouth when I'm sent the wrong way

- Bridge Yoga Studio

I’ve been attending yoga classes at Bridge Yoga Studio for over 10 years, and it has become a staple in my weekly health/fitness routine. I began my yoga experience under the incredible instruction of Tony Rothberg, following him to the Richmond location. Not only is it a dedicated place to practice poses, mindfulness and the disciplined form of yoga, it is also a fun environment to exercise with a strong sense of community. The classes vary in level/experience and each teacher has a personal approach to their practice. I particularly enjoy the structure and flow to the Iyengar style with time to warm up the body and find strength as well as flexibility within the class with the use of props. It’s become an important part of my life and I feel the instant effect after each class. I wouldn’t live without it. It’s for anyone and everyone!

- Navigation has stopped working

I have always used and completely relied on Google Maps, and it has always worked brilliantly, but for some reason a couple of months ago the navigation completely stopped working. It shows the route on my phone and the time it will take and it gives me the first direction and then it stops. I have installed the latest iOS and the latest Google Map version, I have turned my phone off and on, I have checked location services are on, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, I have turned airplane mode on and off. Am I missing something? I don’t want to leave a one star review but at the moment that’s all it is!

- Features are cool but they are missing the point

I love the app and it’s features around exploration but at its core, this is a car navigation app and for an app this popular, it missing out on some key features that makes other apps able to compete on the market. It misses things like speed, red light and speed cameras, correct lanes for continual navigation between streets, and quick saving of addresses that stay on the device and not saved to some American server. Google has such a large chance to make this app the only app in the market place but they waste it on useless extras that should really be their own apps. Shame.

- So many annoying things

It’s incredibly ironic that Google Maps is appalling in San Francisco (considering the company is based there) - the map doesn’t seem to be able to locate where I am or the best direction to where I want to go. No great throughout most major US cities. Furthermore, the app’s ‘saved places’ function has limited capacity when compared to the desktop version. You are unable to save a map with editable labels (only a list of places) - what’s the point on this feature on a desktop, aren’t most people using Google Maps on a device? If someone shares a map with you, you are also unable to edit it from a device, only a Desktop. Catch up Google!!

- Public transport shows incorrect connection timings.

Public transport using trains are showing incorrect train connection timings. The time shows correctly when a direct train route is chosen. But when it comes to multiple train connection routes, the connection timings are displayed incorrectly. This bug was present in the previous version as well. I am sure it’s not the problem of source data, as other navigation apps are displaying correct information. Please check and correct this as this is a vital information used by many public transport users.

- Great map, potential to excel!

Google maps has changed he world. I don't carry street directory anymore and I have real time update on what is quickest route. Few things you can improve: 1. maps tell you about turns etc too close to turns. It used to be better, but it seems to differ between versions. 2. There Should be an option to show the speed limit. .... few more, if Google want to know, contact me.

- What happend!?

This app NEVER used to let me down, ive used it for years. Always gets me to my destination without fail until..... Recently, there must have been an update that just made it terrible. The map icon of myself no longer moves with the map. Meaning the map is never facing in the direction of what im going. Makes it confusing as hell when its telling me to turn left but i look at the map picture and im facing a direction im not looking at so i take a wrong turn and get confused. The icon and map used to always face the direction your traveling. And for some messed up reason you have gotten rid of this... for the first time Ive moved to apple maps. Wont be using google no more.

- Major road names are now just blue numbers. Why?

A LOT of countries do not use route numbers for major roads. It’s there on the signs but NOBODY here uses them when referencing directions. I dare say ONLY North America uses route numbers in conversations. Google maps used to display both in BIG VISIBLE FONTS. Why force only route numbers? At least give us the options to choose whether we want road names or road numbers. I checked one of the major route number and I had to ZOOM IN ALL THE WAY to see a SINGLE TINY name to it along MANY KILOMETERS OF ROUTE NUMBERS. I had to google what the heck my route number actually represent in Australia... Getting worse and worse. Always trying to fix WHAT AINT BROKEN in the first place.

- Disappointed

I was on the way to work. I always avoid toll unless m running late. But will always check map just to be clear how long will it take for me to reach my work. As usual when I did today. I showed me very less time like an using toll. I did checked twice avoiding toll but showed me the same way that I mostly use while using toll. Just to experiment I drive the way that shown in Google map with a belief that it will redirect me to different direction before I reach toll. Inspite of avoiding toll it took me toll road and after I payed toll then it direct me different route just 2 km and again merge to motorway. That's very annoying.

- Was Great, Now not

This has been my staple app for many many iPhones, but I’m now deleting it as since IOS 11 and every version of it they’ve updated, this app refuses to work, it will load, then crash to the home screen if I want to do anything other than just look at the startup map of where I am. This has been pretty ongoing for months. Might change this if it ever gets fixed because it’s worked so so well for so long, but now it is in every possible way, unusable.

- Almost perfect

The fact that google is the most accurate and reliable app as an navigator app. I would really like to see them adding feature such as speedometer and speed limit sign, this could really enhance the driving experience, not to mention other navigation apps are catching up with the feature of showing location of speed camera etc. but still google map is my to go app.

- Timings

I have encountered an issue regarding timings on google maps. It was a business place in western Australia. 6 pm was closing time. When I called at 4.40 pm, the robot said they are closed and their timing is eastern standard time. It would be great if there is a option to specifically mention about gmt. Also state name as per the location. It doesn't make sense to me when someone is operating a business in Perth, they mention time as per eastern standard time. Thanks.

- Map works well. Offline maps have problems.

The app works well, except for the offline map download section. For some reason, it refuses to download maps for me. It either simply refuses to download (even though I’m on wifi and have 100% battery life), or it stops midway and then restarts downloading (eg it’ll stop at 94% and then restart back at 67%). It used to work fine but for some reason the current version won’t work. Has been this way for about two months now.

- Traffic

Having the same problem with the new release now I have to turn the traffic every time I open the app. Pls fix 9/19 thx for fixing issue app back to being great again.

- Awesome!!

Best map app out there. I do a lot of point A to B travelling and need to know distances, with the ability to save customers addresses and my destination addresses, it makes giving a quote so much easier!

- North up on single touch

When I touch the screen while on-route, the app makes north-up. Very irritating. It's now impossible to touch and see where the app is taking you. If you touch the screen, it's goes north-up. Crazy.

- I am getting lots every day!

New version doesn’t work properly! Can not find the exact location. I have been using it for several years and it’s first time it makes for me such problems. Please fix it

- Realtor

Google maps is great but the only problem I have is even though I don't have it on mute end it is connected to my Bluetooth, there is no sound..?? I have to look at the map while I'm driving. Not safe!


Google Maps has stopped talking to me. I had 4 Geek Squad guys try to fix it. The problem is with this APP I posted on Facebook and many friends are having the same problem I have to put on my reading glasses while driving to get directions 😡

- Idiots?

Always making me turn where im not aloud! Making up invisible streets, making me go through IMPOSSIBLE place like highways and such.. very very BAD gps system!!!!!!! De loin le pire service de gps! Très très imprécis, me fais tjrs tournée a des endroits ou il est interdit de tournée, invente des rues, me fais passer par des endroit ou il est IMPOSSIBLE de passer comme a travers d’une autoroute ou tourner a travers d’un terreplein.. je ne recommande a PERSONNE!! Si je pouvais ils auraient 0 étoiles!!!

- Crashed when tap the search input field

Can’t do the map search with the keyword

- #FreePalestine

This is proof that Google DOES NOT stand with the people. AND OUR VOICES WILL NEVER BE SILENCED ✊🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸

- Why remove Palestine

Recognised by the UN. Why did you remove Palestine off your maps?


How dare you contribute to the genocide of the Palestinians.

- As rude as they are useless

Don’t take my word for it, go find out yourself!

- 🇵🇸


- Can no longer easily switch between walking, driving and transit.

On the app you used to be able to choose whether you wanted to walk, drive or transit to the destination in the search. Now you cannot and I’m forced to use my computer before heading out and trying my best to remember, instead of having it ready on my phone. Used to love google maps and now I’m regretting having it as my main map. Switching to the apple map app.

- Missing Saved Places on Maps after Update

Last update does not display my saved places on my custom maps. They appear on my list but don’t show up on the map.

- فلسطين Palestine

اعيدو اسم فلسطين للخريطة put Palestinian back to the map 😡

- Palestine ❤️

You know there is a country called : Palestine found more than 5000 years . Do you think by removing its name we will forget it ?!

- You should be ashamed :)

Imagine taking off an actual country off the map. It still exist and will forever exist.even when you take it off🖕🏼 FREE PALESTINE 🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸 You don’t even deserve one star

- Can't call this offline map...

How is this offline map useful when all I can do is download a square of map... look at how Here is doing it, that's real offline map

- Return journey

I don’t know why but once I reach a place while following google maps and when I start the return journey google maps “can’t find a way try again” I have tried restarting the phone, resetting cellular data, connecting to wifi And I believe this happens only on iPhone XR

- transit hidden on satellite map

with new update u have to change to default map + transit view to see transit stops, cannot use satellite map. frustrating.

- Free Palestine


- Where is Palestine !?! 🙄

Disappointed in you google. #FreePalestine 🇵🇸

- Put 🇵🇸 back on map

Dumb people at google! Put Palestine on map!

- Change the logo!

Change the logo back to original one as it stands out on screen among other apps with similar logos! Sometimes Google map routes through a parking lot or very narrow countryside roads even though there is a main highway nearby. Please fix.

- Google maps voice doesn’t always work and doesn’t direct me. Please fix...Still no fix or reply.

When driving with google maps sometimes the voice does not direct me when to turn or where to go. It simply goes silent. Other times it will work perfectly. All my settings are correct.

- Navigation

Worst update . Does not navigate to the point as earlier does👎🏾

- Would NOT recommend.

Recently travelled across Canada, halfway through I uninstalled this app and started using IPhone’s Maps. Google Maps was Constantly having me miss turn offs and taking me on really messed up back country roads. I feel stupid for following it’s recommend route. It IS good for looking up street views and transcribing directions from google though.

- What Happened????

Last update sucks! Push on start and nothing!!! Major screw up.

- Garbage

They don’t update for Montréal fast enough and have me driving through a park when I’m going in a straight line on a street. Garbage...

- Screen moving whenever checking around

While on navigation, whenever i touch the screen to see around, it moves by its own. Creating so much trouble over the road and its not just me, everyone having the same problem.

- Update

The new update is horrible. It does not allow us to look ahead at routes in preview and scroll along the route. It changes direction and seems to have a mind of it own. Please change it back Also needs to have a truck route option!!!

- Drive Times are very inaccurate

After updating its telling me places that 15 minutes away are 2 hours..

- Bus

Not able to see bus schedules anymore unless you go through a bunch of steps and even then I still find it confusing how it works. I pretty much only used this app to see bus times and now I can’t. 👎



- Street view not working

Latest update doesn’t have street view

- Horrible

No Palestine tf? How

- Garbage

Don’t add new features while breaking basic features. When driving, on a single route, the voice guidance can turn off and on whenever it likes. During the whole time I was in an unknown neighbourhood, there was no voice to guide me. When I was about to turn on my street when getting home, the voice started telling me directions. Come on guys, I used google maps because Apple maps is completely unreliable, are you trying to compete with them on who’s the most unreliable? And I have an iPhone 11 pro max so no, the problem is not my phone. Fix this, please. Oh and also, google maps doesn’t recognize the direction I’m going in sometimes. Today, it realized I was going to the opposite way of where it was telling me to go about 5 blocks later. That’s how long it took to recalculate my route. Come on guys. I don’t buy the newest phone each year to be dealing with these problems.

- Update

The new update sucks. You can’t navigate from your location, you have to put in an address. Had to delete the app.

- Full of bugs

Why every time when I switch between satellite and terrain view it gives me popup screen “cannot connect to server”? Why screen is not responding when I click on grey color alternate route? This App extremely buggy and bad designed. Simply unbelievable.

- The street view is not working when dropping pins

street view is not working when dropping pins

- App does not work

I can’t use my data plan while running this app. Keeps saying I’m offline when I have data on. Useless.

- You really need this for your navigation !

Your must use app!

- How did I live when G maps was not around?

Honest confession. Google is very Google - very nice. Tried Apple maps few times; disappointed. But 'Waze' app was doing pretty good too Mr. Google! Get the goodies Waze style. Respectfully Honest and sincere friend Sudhir

- Stuck with search bar👎

Booooo! Google latest revision now FORCES users to have search bar and bottom panel always in view in just maps mode at all times unless map directions has been requested. You know, just a tap to clear the screen for improved "just-maps" viewing? Like we are all too stupid to view maps without google's assistance? Or is it you MUST request directions or amenities for this "privilege". BOOOOOO‼️

- Automatically rotated to the north

The most recent update has the app that automatically rotated to north and when trying to be corrected it just “re-centers” itself which is very irritating. I can’t move around the map without the fear of it just recemtering itself.

- Cant drag around the map while driving

The map can’t be drag around to see the upcoming streets . When i do that, the map reorient in different views and its co confusing and dangerous while driving please fix that. Allow us to drag the map in same direction as we going don’t reorient the map!!!!! Please!!!!!

- New version sucks

Whenever I tried to move around while in navigation it zoom out automatically. I cannot see ahead on route.

- Try to zoom out...

You can’t zoom out and zoom in to check your route without the map spinning around on its own. It’s dangerous while you drive

- Florida lock and key

I am very disappointed in this company they charged me $175 to open an office door I have had to use locksmith too many times and this was one of the most expensive locksmith I have ever used I have always paid under $100. I would understand it if it was a hard job it took the technician 30 seconds to get in I would also understand if it was before 8 o’clock or after 9 o’clock at night it was 8:45 in the morning I will never use this company again and if anybody ever asked me I certainly would not recommend this. I called the company to talk to the owner instead I got a manager and they seemed like they didn’t care. I’m sorry if I was a small business owner I would certainly try to make my customer happy and to have them come back as repeat customers. They really need to work on their customer service and let the customer know the prices before hand not slap them with a outrageous bill.

- Unintelligible and fickle instructions

I am a user of Google as all of us beings in this internet world are. I use Chrome, Chromecast, and have for years used Maps reliably as my chosen app for navigation (on my iPhone.) I have to highlight major points I saw in other reviews: 1. Walking navigation is a mess. I live and spend time in major cities, and have only seen this issue worsened here. When you try and center yourself, Google wants to tell you you’re two blocks away, or will try to orient you in a spinning wheel of cardinal directions. Choose your own. 2. My major gripe and reason I’m switching to Waze is because I FEEL LIKE I AM ABOUT TO GET INTO AN ACCIDENT EVERYTIME I GRIP MY STEERING WHEEL. I commute many miles a day and I’ve been just horrified at how Google will suddenly re-route you. I thought I was going crazy reading the navigation wrong but it’s impossible now to deny that Google has sent me on wild goose chases on the interstate, through winding neighborhood streets for no reason, or simply just wants me to abruptly reverse my car to the prior exit on the highway that it didn’t want me to take 0.4 seconds ago but apparently now has somehow materialized in its periphery. It stresses. Me. Out.

- Tony C

I am an Uber driver and I switch between Google maps which is configured to work with the Uber App and Waze because Google Maps driects me to too many streets that are no longer available from my location. And many other other route issues. It also directs me to make right turns followed dangerous left turns through busy intersections where there are no traffic signals, in situations where if I had travel 1 block further, I would be able to make a right turn and then make the left turn at an intersection with a traffic signal. Too often on freeways it directs to an exit pass the exit directly on to my destination street or close to it, then I have to make at least 2 right turns to get back to the destination, which I already passed on to Freeway. The biggest issue for me is in areas in Los Angeles when I have the option to enter 2 or more freeways with no clear indication of which Freeway I should take to get to the designated exit. Another problem is that the next turn or Freeway exit is not displayed constantly.

- Improvements

I wish there was a way via iPhone to search bookmarks differently. I want to be able to zoom in an area on the map and have a list of just THOSE bookmarked places. I also want to be able to categorize them. Country, state/providence/food/activity.. and so on. And it would be nice to to be able to hide bookmarks. I hate showing someone my phone and have to explain ignore all of that. Also wish there was an option to just click a spot or long hold a spot while in route to add another destination or to see how long it would be to add another place with out having to do the whole search a place then “add stop”. It would also be nice to know right then how long total the trip would be with the added spots but also then how long it would be until your next destination with out having to click overview. Also adding locations needs to be improved I’ve tried adding a gas station to another country like 6 times and it keeps getting denied... why?! It’s a gas station that should be marked... what’s the issue?!

- Team Teller is the best!

I know with all of the recent events, including the tornadoes, viruses, and economic slump, many people may be thinking of rebuilding, investing, and buying (while interest rates are so low). I would highly recommend Team Teller. This group of professionals is so informed, hands-on, and efficient. Our family, including my two daughters, have bought 6 homes with their assistance. They are so easy to work with and will guide you through every step of the process. They really listen to your needs and exactly what you want and do their best to help you get your dream home. We never felt pressured at any point. They were so eager and at the same time patient to help us. At the end of it all, we felt more like family members than clients. The fact that we keep using and recommending them shows how comfortable they made us feel. Give them a call and see what they can do for you.

- Doesn’t work anymore

Google maps was the best. It was google, and maps all in one (store hours, phone number, store website, and directions) I would get upset with people that didn’t use google maps over apple maps. However, over the last year it has become trash. New updates cause so many issues with just the basics of the app, it’s navigation. I will get ridiculously inflated estimated times of arrival for locations that are a mile or two away. The app will tell me to turn the wrong way down one-ways, always now, even though the app map has an arrow on the street clarifying that it is a one-way, it still says to turn down them the wrong way. The app has also told me to turn my car onto a bike/walking path and cut through a park to reach my destination. Google maps, once the best, has become dangerous. I keep hoping for it to be fixed, and it seems there are windows of time when it does work properly , but more often than not it is dangerous. Be aware and careful out there if you are using this app for navigation. It also pains me to have to write this review about what was such an important app on my phone

- Lags severely on iPhone 6s

Google maps is still amazing and has been my go-to for navigation. But something odd has happened the last 6 months. Whenever I map directions, it freezes and takes about 3-4 minutes before it can locate me on the map, but then sometimes it will lose me again. This lag time was so frustrating that I contacted Apple and Att about the issue. They both pointed fingers at each other. Apple would say “Their towers are not pinging your phone correctly”, and ATT would say “the iPhone antenna is damaged.” So I eliminated one and replaced my phone with another 6s Plus. The issue did not improve. So I went as far as switching carriers to Verizon, and the issue still persists so I got another 6s Plus and reinstalled all my apps. Problem still exists. I have these Scoshe magnets on the back of my phone to use as a mount in my car, maybe that’s screwing up the antenna. BUT apple maps works fine, so unfortunately I have to use Apple Maps for navigating which is subpar compared to gmaps. I’m starting to think Apple is doing something to make Gmaps not work as well. Hmmmm.

- Ongoing problems that aren’t addressed

At Highway divisions there was always a very bad navigation instructions: it’ll tell you to stay on the same highway when you in fact need to go onto the other highway is going the opposite direction. The driver needs to know ahead of time which highway they’re going on and doesn’t have a moment to check to see which highway there actually supposed to be on by that time they usually take them out one. This has been going on ever since Google maps was available to use in my area this is particularly the case when you are going south on the 405 and there’s an interchange where the 22 diverges to the right and they will still tell you to stay left or vice versa when you need to go to 22. This is in Los Angeles California over in Garden Grove/ seal Beach/ Long Beach. Millions of people pass through each day. I am a local and sometimes I don’t know which one I’m taking until I get to the intersection I always have to check to see which road I should be taking I’ve been here 37 years.

- Swipe to move in Street View needs to go.

When in street view you swipe to both rotate the camera AND swipe to move down the street. Having one input do two different things is a bad idea and will of lead to the app taking the wrong action much to my frustration. I can’t tell you the number of times I’m trying to turn the camera and suddenly I’m down the street or I’m trying to go down the street and suddenly I’m looking up in the air or down at me feet and when I try to swipe back up it moves down the street. The experience is infuriating when your trying to navigate. You need to remove the swipe to move "feature" and replace it with a different gesture (one that’s not already being used). Baring that at least give me the option to disable it as Street View is unusable in its current form without much frustration. Ignoring Street View this is an amazing app. It’s my go to for so many things. However Street View was one of the defining features of Google Maps that made it first stand out from the competition so I consider this a really big deal.

- Good navigation with an annoying problem

I use this very often, but a lot of the time when I select a specific route to take, later when I’m driving it will say “we have found a faster route, if you would like to stay on your current route click no thanks” and if you don’t click no thanks it will change the route you selected to something else. For one, just because a route may be slightly faster doesn’t mean it’s a road I’d prefer to be on, there can be many reasons for this. Second, I shouldn’t be forced to click a button on my phone screen while I’m driving just to stay on the route that I chose, that’s very distracting and illogical. It should be “we have found a faster route, if you would like to follow this route click ok”. Also why does it assume I didn’t see the faster route already and decided I didn’t want to go on that route beforehand, does it think I’m stupid or something? Please fix this, it’s very annoying and just makes me want to use a different maps app.


Can someone on the maps team please have some putty on your users and stop forcing the zoom into the current location when you start a route. I would like to get an overview of where google is sending me and when I’m trying to zoom out, google maps keeps trying to zoom in. It is SO OBNOXIOUS. Also, please get rid of the response delay. It’s anointing AF that when I tap on X or the input field or whatever that it does not register. Seriously, it’s obnoxious! Thirdly, please stop it with the obnoxious search results with a tiny map and a list that wastes a bunch of white space. Are you a mapping app or not. Try the whole mapping thing and let users pull up a list if they want. Only troubled people use lists instead of a map in a mapping app. Lastly, please stop trying to force the silly Explore tab/card on users or at least knock it off with the wasteful whist space of that silly, childish google design language. It takes up a good 25% of the screen, especially with the redundant “explored, drive, transit” bar. I get it, you are paid too much and really want to stay with google so you and your team keep making up ways of doing things differently when they were already great and don’t need to be changed, but when you’ve reached high levels of outcome achievements, guess what, the likelihood of making things worse instead of better increases exponentially with every introduced change.

- Issue with the GPS... icon shows I’m driving in reverse!!!

I enjoy using this app! It’s great, but ever since the update for CarPlay, there have been a few issues. The most annoying thing is when driving, my position shows up upside down or even facing to the left of right. I understand this has to do with the way the phone GPS may be facing, but when driving on an expressway, it makes no sense. It shows the map as if I’m driving backwards. You guys should have a setting if you are moving in one direction at a certain speed to default the map to move to the way the road is. The whole map moving is only useful if you are walking. Another issue I ran into was the app freezes when you try to input an address via voice. This happens not as much but still bad. All in all, you guys need to make a setting to disable the actual location we’re facing when driving and just figure out if we’re going up, down, left, or right then make the map follow that. If this doesn’t get fixed, i honestly don’t know if I will continue to use this app.

- Fantastic package

Google maps has been fantastic in regards to loading maps and not needing Cellular, Wi-Fi or Internet access of sort just like Waze works. The Waze app. is a great one for knowing what’s ahead of you and Waze will be route via satellite when you’re in different traffic situations such as traveling in Sicily as we are now and rerouting us through the back streets that he would never know they would exist to return to our destination in the middle of the night. I like the way Google maps marks out the route like a regular map but when I do need to change or use Waze, just to have something different. Google maps also has wonderful easy to read history another great features Such as locations of restaurants shops etc. what’s their gathering for Google Trips. It’s a beautiful package that Google is doing, and it works well and I have not seen any bugs with it.

- Needs work

I don’t use google maps for driving or directions. Mostly because I end up getting lost whenever I use it as a navigation. The arrow don’t point in the right direction your facing and sometimes I’m on a different street than the one I’m on. Granted I’m using the app in Japan at the moment. Also as a note some freeways are above main highways, it would be nice if it detected that as well. Not everything is bad though, it is a good app if your looking up places and need to find out information on where you want to go. I’ve noticed that companies tend to update their hours of operation on this map more than others. One other thing is I wish I could edit the colors of my pins or change the icon for the saved list. It would really help me organizing the map that I’m saving. I do use it a lot and I’m hoping to update my rating and review to this. If you search online there are a ton of people wishing the pin and icon can be changed. I’m sure you guys can figure that feature out.

- Could be better

Google maps is always my “go-to” app for directions and traffic, but, it could be even better. My biggest gripe is that I can’t drag a route on the mobile app (on my iPhone) to get time or mileage estimates for a route I suspect will be better (because I KNOW my area’s traffic patterns-especially during rush hour times!) And choosing “avoid highways” or something else won’t help because I want a blend that includes both a )?highway then a back road. I love the drag feature on my desktop but why can’t it also be available on the mobile app? My next complaint is the inability to print directions directly from the app. My mother needs directions and being “older” (and without a smartphone, lol) she prefers having the paper directions. If I want to do that for her, again, I have to boot up my laptop 😖 Please see if the app can incorporate these features that work so well on a desktop/laptop into the mobile app! 🙏

- Rollback (to like 10 versions back!!!)

iphone 6s ios 10. I get smooth performance for every app, except everything google now offers! Google maps has always been so much better than apple maps and all others as well. But all these 'Everyday' updates and bug fixes have made the app sluggish. I believe we all can live with a little less features if it means just getting that smoothness back! Almost 60% of the screen space is taken by all-that-i-don't-need when i open the app. i just need the map, my current location and my destination bar!! That's it! If we need anything else, or if you think we need anything else, then just give us those options in the side menu. You should realize that most people are still using those 5-6 inch devices and not the ipads. 40% screen is not good enough for the map! and yes, we can't all have an iphone X or a pixel 2 to just get rid with the laggy UI. Understand that you can't force us to buy devices we don't need, instead we will adapt to apple maps or something else if you can't be efficient.

- Really exceptionally dependable routing

I have been using GPS in my vehicles since 2007, so I have dealt with a number of different systems for over ten years now, and I have spent lot of money on navigation systems installed in vehicles (eight different vehicles over that period). I still use a built-in system in my present vehicle. But increasingly—and since iPhone 5 and iPhone 6—I have been depending on Google Maps to route me to specific destinations, and using my car’s BlueTooth connection system to provide continuous directions through my car’s sound system. I have found it extremely reliable, and I certainly have appreciated that it is constantly updated and free. As most newer cars can connect with their owners’ smartphones now—and as most smartphones can be charged in the car—I highly recommend this application to everyone who has to do a lot of driving!

- Works great on East Coast US but not so much when I’m anywhere else.

I use this all the time when at my parents’ place and it gives me plenty of notice for a turn and does an overall great job navigating in New York. I’ve been using it while at my grandparents’ in West Cost US and it tells me once I’m at the turn that I’m supposed to be turning (at which point I can’t turn) and in Japan it doesn’t register where you are when trying to walk places and get directions, and we ended up making wrong turns because the map would say we were two blocks from where we actually were. Overall I use this over Apple Maps any day but it’s getting to be annoying missing turns because I can’t look at the map while driving and it tells me only once I’m at the turn to actually turn. If I was more familiar with the area it wouldn’t be a problem but I’m only here about 1 week every year and I only just started driving here because I can’t rent a car so I have to be able to borrow a car.

- Very little bad things to say about you. Still angry.

Great app. I have a lot of good things to say about you guys. But at the very same time I’m beyond angry. There’s so many features you never bothered to consider or enable. I’ve got a very specific reason why I need to remove all my contributions from Google Maps. I was a Level 9 Local Guide but for reasons I won’t get into I need all my contributions gone. Of course you guys wanna make it difficult though. I have to MANUALLY REMOVE EVERY PHOTO. You guys never THOUGHT to implement a feature that allows you to mass-delete all your contributions. Hypothetically deleting my Google account wouldn’t even do me any justice, my contributions would remain. I’ve been sitting here for hours on end — 3.5 hours I think — and I’ve screen recorded all my progress — and I’ve only managed to delete 2,000 photos. It took me THAT long to manually delete 2k photos, and I’ve still got 7k to go. You guys have robbed me of my time because you never thought to implement such a simple feature.

- Piece of junk

In recent months this app has become worthless for getting anywhere. It says that my destination is several hours away when it is really only 20 to 25 minutes away. It at times does not recognize that I am driving on a highway with no exit in sight and it will say to turn on to a street that is off the highway. On city streets it will say to turn where there is a city water control drainage ditch separating me from the street it is saying to turn on to. It will sometimes take me in the opposite direction from my desired destination. It will say to turn on to a street that is blocked by a concrete median. Today it was taking along a route and was saying to continue on to another street, I noticed that I was about to pass through the intersection of the street with the address of my destination. As I drove up to the address of my destination the application was still giving my directions to drive the opposite way. I am removing this app from my iPhone and going back to using MapQuest. At least I will get where my destination is without having to stop to ask directions.

- Wanted to like it but unreliable

I almost never give “bad”reviews of something but I felt like I needed to share. I started using Google Maps more because I have been using lots of other Google apps and loved them like docs, tasks, calendar, etc. I liked them better than the Apple versions. So I gave google Maps a try on a recent weekend trip. I knew which highway I needed to use but I needed help closer to my destination. It seemed to be experiencing some kind of error. It kept telling me to turn somewhere not the usual once or twice reminder but repeatedly for a solid minute and a half. So I ignored it, got myself to the highway I knew I needed to be on and figured it would reroute or correct but it kept doing it! I had to have Siri download another directions app and use that while I was driving because this app couldn’t get it together. I thought surely, I had selected some sort of setting that made it do that but I haven’t found anything unusual. I’m a little nervous to use it again, honestly.

- Very inconsistent!!!

I’ve been using Google Maps for a while now, utilizing the ‘location sharing’ feature more than anything. I’ve tried so hard to like the app and make it work for my family and I, but the app has let me down consistently! The location sharing feature often gives me inaccurate locations (of other family members sharing their location) or provides me with a MASSIVE range of possibilities of where family members are...too large of a range to even GUESS where their location could be. However, with all those issues, I’ve still been using the app with hope that location accuracy will improve. NOW, the location will not update! This has been an issue for almost a week now-I’ve had a location of each family member, but the location is anywhere from “2-4 hours ago”!! And the ‘refresh’ option will not ‘refresh.’ I’ve tried everything I can think of to fix the issue, thinking it could be something on my end or on family’s end, but to no avail. Please fix this app!!

- Best GPS App & more BUT

It needs to have an option when there is traffic to alert you soon enough for you to make a decision to take the detour. Also Google maps needs to work on their notification when using the GPS. Google maps tells you way ahead of time that you’re going to turn right but you have to keep looking at the app to make sure you don’t miss the road. Google should alert the driver when they get to the road exactly and make a noise like ding ding turn right here. I passed roads many times because one Google maps doesn’t tell you on the bottom of your screen what road you’re on and on the top it should say what your next move will be With the roads name that you’re turning onto. Just my opinion otherwise it’s a great app I love it don’t use anything else not even that iPhone maps that came with it.

- Odd,, when I

Type in Ymca if offers me top of the line a Ymca that is 60 miles away which I never have gone too, then the second offer is a Ymca that is 4 miles away which is on my daily route of travel,, very odd,, maybe I should turn off my locator if it wants to try to find me , might to a better job of using satellites reflection for location ???, I also see where I am at by the pulsating when I tap on goggle map I always assumed you guys knew where I am at I mean why are you offering directions to the Ymca 60 miles away I never go there, I mean you know I always go to the Ymca that is 4 miles away that really baffles me , how can I ever trust you with my car if you offer something like this to me,,hey I went back and tried it again now it remembers my preference probably is just short term memory though we’ll probably try it again if I ever get around to it to test your long term memory or you just might to blame it on a big but then what kind of bug , also bugs have a right to live if even if you try to eradicate them or a it bug, but generally there is more then one bug as bug breed

- Viewing Lists on Map Too Limited

Love that I can save places to lists, and show and hide each list from the general-purpose map. However, it is extremely frustrating that there is no way to go into a list and (only then, while viewing that list) temporarily see all the places I saved to that list on the map without having to do this: - tell the app to show them in the map - return to the map - try to pick them out amongst everything else I saved (unless I also manually go turn off those lists temporarily, which isn’t worth the trouble for 99% of the use cases I’m suggesting) In other words, unless I’ve missed something, you can only see lists in list view unless you adjust their visibility as bookmarks on your map. I don’t want that- I just want a way to see the list on the map through the list itself and then go back to the map with all my other settings unchanged. For example, some lists (like places to eat) I would like to always display on a daily basis. I leave those turned on. Other lists (like museums) I only get to use occasionally, so usually leave turned off so the map isn’t too crowded. That’s all fine. I get annoyed, however, when I go to the museums list, and want to quickly view only museums in the map, but cannot; to do so, I have to turn on that list and turn off 3-5 other normal lists first. This seems unnecessary and easy to fix, and would add a ton of utility to an otherwise good app.

- Uses App Daily

I switch back and forth between Maps and Google Maps. I’d like it if you would add a toggle to view the speed limit on route. I get nervous when traveling into new places, especially back roads, and not knowing the speed limit. I enjoy the turn by turn directions that include mention of a street or landmark to head towards - that is incredibly helpful when I am not familiar with the area. One thing I’d improve is how soon the audio function will remind you to make a turn or take an exit. Most of the time, I am reminded within a quarter mile, but sometimes I am reminded within 800 ft, and other times I am not reminded at all! I wondered if this is a function that could be fixed. I haven’t experienced any serious issues with the app, and other then what I have mentioned above there are no other suggestions I can currently think of! Thank you very much for your hard work/development of this app!

- Hate the Commute tab

The new update is terrible - instead of Explore, Driving and Transit, now there’s only two tabs: Explore and Commute. As someone with an irregular work schedule (work from home some days, no fixed time I come into and leave the office) it’s practically useless since the days/times aren’t customizable. And to make way for Commute, they took away the best feature of the app, the Transit tab. As a New Yorker, I had my app set to that as a default, because it would highlight all the subway lines in colors, show me where all of the entrances and exits were located and even the station layouts and positions of each platform. This is vital information here in NYC!! Why would you get rid of this? Now all I have is a useless Commute tab and an obnoxious Explore tab that I don’t use but is now apparently my new default. Oh, and once you set up commute, you can’t remove it. Found this out by accident when I was trying to figure out where the nearest subway line was (as it was no longer highlighted). Only way to remove it was to delete my work address. Google, please bring back Transit!!!

- What happened!?!?!?!?!!!!!!

I don’t know what y’all have done, but for the last month plus Google Maps has been absolutely awful! Inaccurate directions, plain old wrong directions, end points one to two streets over from the actual location, routes that are way off track from a direct route (regardless of traffic), the orientation of the map (biggest screw up you currently have going on!!!!!!!!)......who wants to know what north is on the map and if you’re heading south, my car shows me that....and so does the dang SUN! what I would like to see (as well as MANY other Google Map users, I’m sure!) is the “in time”, actual orientation that shows UP as forward. Half the time my music is turned up and I’m not listening to the audio, but rather looking at the map, and when a right turn goes to the left, guess where the human brain wants to turn......yep, LEFT. Whoever decided the recent updates you all have made, were good ideas.....must not drive for a living, travel regularly, or drive much at all outside of a 10 mile radius! FIX THIS CRAP!!!!!!!

- Best navigation app I’ve found, but I have a suggestion

This app is by far the most accurate and user-friendly navigation app that I’ve found. I do, however, have a suggestion about something that needs to be improved upon, at least in my opinion. I will explain the issue by using an example. So let’s say I am at my house, and I want to figure out how long it will take me to get from Walmart(Point A) to Target (Point B). The problem I run into is that the app automatically sets my house as Point A, and it usually doesn’t give you the option to change Point A to something other than your current location. I know it’s possible to do so, because I’ve done it before, but it isn’t easy, and every time I’ve done it it’s been by mistake. Improving this aspect of the app would make it even more user-friendly. Sorry if this is difficult to understand, I probably over-explained it, but yeah that’s my input. Lol

- Map functionality

I’ve always used google maps. I prefer it over Apple Maps due to the map detail and functionality. Recently I suppose there has been an update that causes the map to completely 180 degree turn when I’m trying to move ahead. For instance: I’m using google maps, I have a destination entered and I’m following the route. The map is centered and I can see just about a quarter mile ahead of me. I try to pull the map down, so that I can see what’s coming up ahead of me, following the route with my thumb. The map used to allow you to just follow the route as far as you’d like just like you were driving at that point in the route. Now when I try to pull the map down to see further ahead the map turns completely around and faces the opposite way. So I’m looking behind me on the route to where I’ve already driven. What kind of sense does that make? Zooming in and out and looking ahead has become completely “un-user friendly” please fix this google.

- Great ap but...

I love google maps I use it so much for everything. It is my go to app for driving, researching where to go and reading reviews or leaving reviews. But it is super annoying how it always either deletes or disassociates my photos from my review. If you try to edit and readd them it just dumps them into photos and doesn’t add them to your actual review. I hate that when I take time to leave reviews and choose specific photos for it as well. Also can you PLEASE add interstate rest areas to the maps!!!!! Like either have an on/off toggle or button to show or have them auto show up when you are on the interstate and are within 3-4 miles. But I would love to click show me rest stops so I can know how close I am to one on the fly rather than having to find a gas station or having to search or zoom in or use another ap. This would make my world so much better. We travel FT in our Rv so having that on my google maps would be the icing on the cake for me.

- Great unless you love traffic!

I’d give this a middle finger emoji if it would let me. Google Maps is terrible. Why it’s “the number one navigation app” is beyond me. Today was the last straw. Traveling east from DC into Massachusetts - encountered a “twenty minute slowdown ahead” on the GW Bridge (in NYC) - 25 miles from where I presently was (plenty of time to redirect me). Google just kept informing me of the slowdown and how much longer it was getting (now, two hours) and happily steaming me along INTO IT. Desperate to avoid sitting on the GW in NYC for 2+ hours (after already driving for 8 with 3+ more to go) I opened Waze. *WAZE* immediately redirected me, getting me to my destination and saving me a needless 2+ additional hours in my vehicle. Google - PRO TIP: When offering a “navigation” tool, the people using it want the QUICKEST, most EFFICIENT way to their destination. They don’t want their lives disrupted further. I had to make an 8 hour drive today. Google Maps would have made that 11+ *for no reason.* This is not an isolated incident. Me? I’d avoid the app, unless you enjoy not being re-routed to the most efficient routes available. Very bummed out.

- Why, Google, WHY??

November 2020 Update: The issue below seems to have been fixed, so I’m happy about that! 😊 Now, if Google could stop the app from freezing at seemingly random intervals, and also stop my starred locations from disappearing off of my map (I’ve spent hours on Google’s product forums since 2014(!) on the latter issue with no success), I’d be a happy camper! ☹️ ******** Why is it that every update of Google Maps takes a part of the program that is perfectly functional and seems to arbitrarily break it? I’m always hesitant to update this app for that very reason and it’s done it yet again. You used to be able to tap on your screen a second time to get rid of all of the peripheral crap that takes up valuable screen space. This would allow one to see the map in full screen mode without the search bar at the top and all of the other, “commute” and “saved places” tabs at the bottom of the screen, (etc., etc). There’s so much clutter that I can barely fit my fingers on the screen to pinch/zoom the actual map - let alone actually see it. This annoyance didn’t seem like that big of a deal, however, because I could simply tap on the screen again and all that stuff would go away. Now… That extra screen tap doesn’t work anymore (it now gives you an unnecessary pin wherever you tap instead of hiding the clutter). I hate it!

Google Maps have certainly helped my New Years resolution of being on-time!!! Google maps not only give you the precise turn by turn directions, announcing or on silence, to the imputed address. If you do not have the address, just type in the name and Google maps will do all the research for you to get you the exact address. Not only the exact address, however, the approximate time of your arrival. Google maps, usually , if not, always, gives you several different routes to choose from to get to your designated address. It has the option to announce the turn by turn directions and/or to be silent, while still offering turn by turn directions. I heavily rely on Google Maps just about everyday and thus far, I’m sticking with my “New Years” resolution of being on time !!!! Thank you very much, Google Maps

- Houston we have a problem...

I hate using this map because it always gives me the wrong directions. I live in Houston Texas and for some reason the map always stops and starts floating mid air. It glitches while giving directions and repeats things over 20x. I have the X, I even visited the apply store to see if it was user error. But’s crappy google map. It’s only good for the “avoid tolls” option. But even that STILL puts me on a tollway. I’ve been late using this app because it always gives the wrong, longest routes. I’ve been lost using this map, run out of gas. I only open it to have a backup map just in case Waze decides to map has been around for far to long to have problems like this. And from my wasn’t always this bad. I used to scream yooo use google map! Now I’m like “you got the waze app? It shows police.” Cmon google! Where’s the accurate maps? Directions? Speed limit compared to the speed limit in my city? Where’s my police radar? Where’s my option to send my ETA? I’m no app builder but I just expected so much more from a google run app.


When it comes to getting you to rent the apartment the staff is incredible. However once you are renting the apartment should you run into any maintenance problems, forget about it !!!!!!! I currently live here and I have a leak in the master bathroom ceiling for OVER A MONTH !!!!! They came to look at it. Placed a piece of card board and tape over it and said they would come back to fix the leak issue and DID NOT RETURN FOR OVER A MONTH! I have made plenty of request, called the office multiple times to only come home and have the leak still happening in the bathroom and not being able to shower. I make a point to pay my rent on time, to make sure my family does cause any disturbance to the neighbors, to make sure we are good neighbors. So when you are charging me $1,800 for a 2/2 I except AT THE LEAST for when I call in A LEAK IN THE CEILING for it to be resolved the same week. I have been more than understanding and more than patient but I am extremely disappointed with the neighborhood!!!! Not how I thought this community operated, extremely dissatisfied, cannot wait for lease to be up!

- Best nav app bar-none. Missing one key feature

I love this app more than any other nav app without question. The fact that I can add unlimited stops and navigate turn by turn in satellite view is amazing for my job as a delivery driver. Traffic info is the most accurate I’ve found and the ability to correct errors on the map such as address locations and road closures is priceless. The one feature it’s missing that I would love to see in the near future is the ability to have building outlines show up (preferably popped out) in the turn by turn navigation like they do while exploring the map outside of navigation. As it is, only the roads appear and no buildings. Other than that it’s a 5 star app but this one quirk makes it unfortunately 4 stars. Give me the option to show buildings while in navigation and 5 stars all the way!

- Ugh so frustrating to use now

What happened to this product? So frustrating and flawed now and it’s kinda hard to believe given how many dev resources you have. Navigation is always buggy now, deep linking stopped working so I can’t send someone directions and have them open the app even though it’s installed. The app audio interruptions are terrible and don’t properly pause other audio streams coming from my device. App says I’m offline when Apple maps and other apps are working perfectly fine. What gives? On top of that your core algorithm for directions and tracking works terribly in SoCal now...constantly routing me around in circles on certain highways. Edit: A new infuriating bug. Every time I open the app from the background on an iPhone X, iOS 11 device, I get the offline, tap to retry message that never actually retries the network connection (possibly going from WiFi to cell connection). I have to kill the app from memory and relaunch the app. This is seriously a risk to users who are driving and relying on this simple network handling. Simple stuff y’all.

- More than just a GPS app

I absolutely love this app! Arguably, my favorite app. At first, I only used this app because I thought it was a better alternative for GPS, however as I began to explore the app I began to really love it. A few years ago, I became a local guide because I was I wanted to pass time and write a few reviews. Now, I can’t stop! I love it, I really feel like I make a difference in my community. I can see people interacting with my reviews and my photos. I can save places that I like or frequently go to like, work, home or even custom places. Through Bluetooth I’m able to see where my car is parked. At the end of the day I can even check my timeline to see where the day has taken me (I love that because I drive everywhere for work). To the developers, you are really doing a great job and I appreciate your hard work. Thank you!

- Please fix your bugs !!

I’ve had a very hard time with this app recently. I have an iPhone and used to use the Apple Maps that comes with it, I’ve had issues with that so I downloaded this app instead and it’s been worse !! As of lately it messes up so much when using it and the navigation will be shown upside down during my route and I’d physically move it so it’s right but once I make a turn it’s back to upside down. Often times when using the app it’ll just end the navigation completely also when in route and it will take a minute or 2 to get started up again, very very frustrating! I’ve had the app just straight freeze on me multiple times when needing it or unable to find an address. I personally liked the app at first, but once I came across issue after issue it became too frustrating to use. Feels unreliable. I just wish these big issues would get fixed and I’d have no issue using it again. For now I have to go back to my Apple Maps since I had less issues.

- MapQuest directions ala early 2000s would be better

Honestly, reading MapQiest directions from 20 years ago for the same location today would get you to your destination much easier and more efficiently. Yo, Google, get it together. Every single update for the past year has been worse than the previous update. So much lag time, freezes, and then decides to take random roads for no reason. In my neighborhood (we’ve lived there for years so Google should know it by now) the ole Googs wanted me to pass my stop sign and keep driving straight on the Main Street all the way to the end of our neighborhood where it dead ends (about 1.5 miles past the stop sign), just to turn around at the culdesac to come back to take a turn at the stop sign a mile back up the road, which was very much accessible and doable the first go ‘round. I couldn’t believe it. And it’s been like that with every set of directions. Seriously, each update gets worse and worse and worse. I’m switching over to Apple Maps. Just go to a gas station and buy a paper map. This app is done.

- Best place to read the most fair reviews !

Google reviews are well known throughout the country for making sure that ex employees, competitors, and other trolls, do NOT destroy your professional reputation with hateful content, and derogatory remarks. I’m very grateful that Google reviews and Google maps takes businesses reputations seriously, and there is no other company that does this as well. Google reviews are not cheaters like yelp, where yelp blackmails and manufactures bad reviews of a business, in order to force the business owner into paying yelp money every month in order to remove the bad reviews that they manufactured. Most any other reviewers black mail the small businesses, and ONLY GOOGLE REVIEWS DO NOT TRY TO DESTROY The American small business owner. Thank you so much Google reviews for not allowing fired ex-employees, competitors, and other trolls to ruin my small business.

- Best GPS there is

I don’t know how i’d get to places I don’t know the destination to without this app. Need to find a gas station that has the cheapest prices? Search gas stations and a list of them pop up with their prices. Need to get to a place as quick as possible? This app has features for the fastest route and for the least amount of miles. I’m a good driver but i’ve always been horrible with directions. I’ve owned GPS’s in the past and without a doubt Google maps is by far the best GPS i’ve used, with Apple maps close behind it. Plus having voice turn by turn is def a huge plus. Super easy to use and accurate. Did I mention it’s free!?! If you’re bad at directions like me or just need to get somewhere you don’t know either walking, biking or by vehicle I recommend Google Maps. It won’t let you down.

- Works great

My husband was an over the road trucker. The company got a contract that brought the trucks to a few out of the way farms with low and underweight bridges when this was first available. I’d get home from work, sit at the computer and drive the new routes at street level (which was better than the new street level) before he’d have to get off the highway. Saw a few lovely weddings, people waved to the google car after noticing its gizmo on the roof too. I could reroute him around ‘no trucks allowed’, 10’ bridge ahead’, ‘weight limit 5000 lbs!’ And to safe rest areas. He’s retired, so now we have fun setting, even routes we know well, and google tells us turn by turn. Our daughter shook her head and rolled her eyes...until she got lost and I told her to try it. She calmed right down as it guided her back to the road she knew. Thank you Google!

- I prefer google maps to all else

However, waze has a leg up when it comes to reporting hazards and speed enforcement. For instance I love that I can now report vehicles on the shoulder, objects on the road, and speed traps, BUT I can’t thumb up or down other peoples reports. It mighty seem like a small thing, but that one interactive feature (along with an audible announcement) puts waze above google maps for most of my family and friends. It would be more user friendly if a banner popped up with upcoming reports along with a thumb up/down option. Also, why titled “speed trap?” Why not just “police?” Or to be more general “speed enforcement,” which would include both cops and speed devices. Also could there be an option for bad weather or road conditions? These are my thoughts for an update. Google maps is still my favorite navigation app and I defend it to my waze-loving family.

- When you drive to somewhere close, Google map wants you to walk.

I like to use Google map, even I am using an iPhone. Few days ago, I need drive to a nearby school about a mile away. After a few minutes diving, I noticed I am in the walking route, I stopped the car and changes back to drive setting. I am lucky because it happens close to my home. Yesterday I was not that lucky, I was in San Diego, A city I didn't know very well. I found a restaurant nearby, after following Google map drive a while, my kids started to cry, we are in a very narrow bike ride in the middle of trees and grass. Then I checked the setting, Google automatically changes to biking from driving again. Luckily for us, we came out safely after 30 minutes of struggles, I close my Google map and turn on the GPS in my Car, it knows that I am driving a big SUV :( Please let me know ahead if any setting needs to change.

- Solid navigation app but update hid some features

I use the app for navigation a lot. Like a lot a lot, and the update is cosmetically great but it’s hidden some settings the I prefer to always be on and doesn’t remember them when you restart the app. Like showing traffic for roads not along the path you’re navigating. You have to tap the weird layer icon in the top right. That small peeve aside, in the commute tab, you can’t pull the fastest route suggestions down to see the map on more than 25% of your screen until you commit (press start) to one - which is the biggest nuisance for me. So you can swivel and zoom but only see the information you want through 25% of the screen before committing to a selected route. Hope they adjust that soon. I kind of get it that your commute isn’t going to change much but what’s the harm in letting me see the bigger map before committing to a route?


where do i even start. this is app is AMAZING and i use it for almost anywhere i go! but i have a suggestion (note: this app is already amazing i just came up with this thought myself promise!) anyways so i was thinking, what if google added an option called “Draw Your Route” or something like that (you guys can change it up if you have a better name) but basically the point of the idea is that you can basically draw your route to a destination for example, say you were going from point A to point D but you wanted to pass points B and C but in a specific route you had in mind. the “Draw Your Route” option would allow you to plot your starting point then draw your route then end at your destination or the place you want to go to! hope google sees this but if they don’t idc i still love the app!

- Great For Navigation

I think this app is definitely number one for maps. I can look anywhere as long as I have Wi-Fi and the quality of the images is pretty good as well, unless you zoom in too much. I love to look at glaciers on mountains like the Himalayas or the Cascades. I also like how there are some bike trails you show. Right now as i’m writing this review were covered in 2 feet of snow, so it’s pointless in winter, (unless you get no snow) but in summer it’s pretty useful. It also helps me out with geography, which is a subject I study a lot. Finally I like looking in on river valleys. It’s really easy to scroll down a river valley and see where it leads to. My only suggestion is that you could add the other planets and moons of the solar system (please include Pluto if you do). Anyway this is super great for navigation and definitely deserves 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

- New update is not getting it

I have been using Google maps since they have been on cell phones with out any issues. The previous updates always enhanced the app but this last one is annoying: I can deal with all the new features except now I can not search for places while en route. You used to be able to hit the search button while en route and it would pull up whatever you were looking for. Now when you do that everything is NO RESULTS. I was on my way to a family members house and was looking for a gas station to fill up before I got there and I knew there were some on my way just didn’t know where, but it was NO RESULTS. It was annoying because I didn’t want to miss a turn looking for a gas station when all I had to do in the past was add location on route!!!! I would like to continue to use this app cause I am used to it and I liked how easy everything was, but I have to now train myself on Apple Maps, cause if this is not corrected I need to have a backup plan.
