Google Maps - Transit & Food App User Reviews & Comments

Fix zoom out/in on listsHi! 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.Version: 4.58

Google’s political agenda showsWhat 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..Version: 5.29

Tony CI 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..Version: 5.26

Kim BI’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!.Version: 5.31

One of the best navigation apps, but isn’t as great as some othersGoogle 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..Version: 5.31

Worse over timeLet’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!.Version: 5.19

Need to disable auto-reroutingI’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?.Version: 5.10

Recent updateI 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......Version: 5.55

Warranty Exchange - Incredible Customer Service ExperienceLong 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..Version: 5.39

Please create feature to save/remember current tripsI 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!!!.Version: 5.7

TerribleGoogle 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..Version: 5.0

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.!.Version: 4.44

Changes my destinationI 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..Version: 4.44

GLITCHES!!!!!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.Version: 5.46

Not the same map app it used to be and update full of bugsThe 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)..Version: 4.39

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..Version: 5.9

My reviewI 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..Version: 5.18

MasterpieceGoogle 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..Version: 5.42

AlrightIt’s alright. Buggy sometimes even with good signal. When I search along the route it will sometimes not come up with any search results, only for me to pass the very thing I searched for prior in my drive. And no it wasn’t a new business, it had been around for years. Also when I search places, one will say it’s 10 minutes out of the way while the other says only a few. Only to realize that the faster one ended up not being as simple as they said, and that the slower one (+10 minutes) was only slow because for some reason it had me take side roads completely around it before arriving, when I could have simply turned directly into it from the road I was on, making it a quick trip. Not all gas stations show up in searches, it almost seems to favor the expensive gas stations. There’s doesn’t seem to be an algorithm that keeps track of the bad traffic times. It will re rout my whole trip to a significantly slower route if it senses traffic, even if that traffic is close to the end of my trip hours away and will be cleared well before I get to that point. If you’re a contractor that has to go in and out of many neighborhoods, it normally recognizes certain entrances while not recognizing others, so it will take you completely around the neighborhood 30 minutes away to the other entrance when you have just passed a perfectly good entrance that has been around forever. It’s still one of the better gps apps, but still way to buggy to trust it.Version: 5.58

Stop trying to be WazeI 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.Version: 5.6

Best public transit mapping & predictorI 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)..Version: 4.43

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..Version: 5.52

It’s a very important app to haveWhether 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..Version: 4.37

Best Mapping App AvailableI’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..Version: 5.9

Love the new updateUsed 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..Version: 4.54

No longer user friendlyApp 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..Version: 5.56

It’s still the best....exceptI’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..Version: 5.8

BACKOUT or Put a FIX IN for buggy update..Love this map app.. especially being able to share my location real-time with other people. Found this hidden gem feature (for me at least)traveling from IL to FL. Kept ppl I formed without a lot of texts or phone calls. 👍 That said... based on my interaction with the app a recent release royally screwed up city navigation where I’m at near Fort Meyers FL. I hope the update I just installed corrects the issues and madness this app has caused me the last few days bc I don’t know this city from Adam. The app has been literally unusable for 2-3 days navigating the area. So bad the audio told me to go south when I needed to go due north. I looked at the screen and the satellite image was correct on current location and route to intended location. I couldn’t get the audio to toggle on at all. Even after reboot of my iPhone 10. That’s when had no choice but exit your app and use map app plan B. IN SUMMARY, google developers please don’t make me find a new “everyday use” map app so I can rely on it to tell me the correct information in this city. If you haven’t already,, backout, research issues if you aren’t aware, or push an emergency update with fixes to correct things. Thank you 😕.Version: 5.58

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!.Version: 5.53

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..Version: 5.0

Navigation slow of just plain stops in iOS12Help! 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!.Version: 5.3.1

Better than iOS MapsI 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..Version: 4.39

Better than sliced breadIt 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.Version: 4.56

Not very good or accurateGoogle 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..Version: 5.21

Maps counties to have offline issuesFor 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.Version: 5.55

Wish they would add weatherI 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..Version: 5.18

Updates are not necessarily improvementsBefore 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 markings...no 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 helpful...it’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.....Version: 5.38

Only sometimes shows the saved locations on my phoneI 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.Version: 4.41

An annoying necessityI 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..Version: 5.21

Orientation determined is often inaccurate.I really want to feel secure to continue using this app as I am more familiar with it than any other navigation app, but it needs help - especially recently. The last few months it has been increasingly inaccurate when determining & showing my orientation and specific location on the map, especially in the beginning of the navigation, and therefore I often either (1) miss an exit (though sometimes that's due to a "lag" before the instruction is made - which is another problem), (2) I'll turn the wrong way when I follow the "turn right" or "turn left" directions spoken, or (3) I'm lead along the correct road but in the opposite direction of what's needed, thus resulting in a u-turn or other kind of detour. Sometimes u-turns are accessible and no big deal, but in some areas they are not accessible for long stretches, therefore creating a substantial detour in my trip. Idk if this is just a connectivity glitch or what, but these instances are happening for me more frequently and consistently in recent months than I have ever experienced before, so I don't think my specific location of reception is the issue. Please, please correct these issues..Version: 5.58

So frustratingThis 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..Version: 4.47

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..Version: 4.44

Great...when it worksGoogle 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..Version: 4.48

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..Version: 5.56

The worst featureGoogle 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..Version: 4.48

It’s google trashJust 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.Version: 5.41

The Fall: Google Maps’ Descent into ChaosGoogle 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..Version: 5.22

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..Version: 4.42

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!!!.Version: 5.4

Worse and discriminatoryI’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..Version: 5.20

Poor navigationThe street view and local business rating features are more advanced than other apps but the navigation abilities of Google Maps are worse than ever. Google maps will frequently suggest convoluted routes that based upon distance and speed limits seem quicker but end up sending drivers through endless corners, roundabouts, traffic lights not to mention other safety hazards and time wasting things like school zones and residential streets effectively costing us time and comfort. When navigating with Google maps it really is essential to know the area and trust your gut to overrule the hair brained suggestions provided. Another common occurrence with Google Maps is for the app to provide an ETA which grows numerous times during the journey. In the age of ‘AI’ and machine learning how is Google not able to learn from regular traffic patterns and provide accurate ETAs and ideal routes that take into account growing traffic at peak hour?.Version: 5.58

DisappointedI 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..Version: 5.3.1

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)..Version: 5.19

Needs earlier turn warnings and less right turnsFor 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.Version: 5.43

MY Plan ManagerIf 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..Version: 5.54

So many annoying thingsIt’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!!.Version: 4.54

Should be suedYour 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..Version: 5.42

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..Version: 4.58

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..Version: 5.10

Update has ruined it - switching to WazeHave 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..Version: 4.50

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!.Version: 5.35

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..Version: 5.15

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..Version: 5.3.1

Google maps reviewGoogle 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.Version: 4.39

Navigation has stopped workingI 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!.Version: 5.10

Needs option for most direct routeGoogle maps used to be quite good, but over the last 12 months navigating I have increasingly noticed it will direct off main, arterial roads and onto small roads, presumably because Google thinks it’s faster. Unfortunately making turns on the roads to rejoin major roads or highways is not only annoying but time consuming. Google Maps will often direct you to exit a highway, only to rejoin at the next entrance- as it thinks the on and off ramps are faster. It is also more commonly suggesting turns which are illegal or impossible to do, and in cities where being in the correct lane early is important, the Google Maps directions are unable to adequately inform of correct lane in a timely manner If there was a better app I would be using it but for the time being settle with Google Maps.Version: 5.58

Better than Apple - needs a small design tweakBetter 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..Version: 4.44

Fuel and toilet buttons on route plsGoogle 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?.Version: 5.6

Poor navigation, directions all over the placeFor 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.Version: 4.52

UnintelligibleIn 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..Version: 4.44

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*.Version: 5.1

Australia doesn’t use routesThis 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..Version: 5.25

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..Version: 5.23

Google Maps iPhone AppDespite 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....Version: 5.33

Improvements for Apple Car PlayMaps 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..Version: 5.4

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..Version: 5.6

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 “..Version: 5.12

Almost perfectThe 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..Version: 4.47

Google mapsVery 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..Version: 4.49

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.Version: 5.2

Not showing regular bus routesGoogle maps used to be my go to and very reliable for when I need to catch a bus last minute but with the recent update and I think an issue with a sponsorship with Didi travel (like Uber I think) the app no longer shows me all the options for buses I can catch which it showed me just days before. Now it will ONLY show the option to catch a Didi lift and then a random bus that barely takes me to where I need to go and then I have to walk the rest. The bus I usually catch is only a 5 minute walk from my house and once I reach my destination I only need to walk an extra 5mins MAXIMUM to get to where I need to go (usually it’s only a minute of walking). I’d be fine with seeing the Didi ad if they also showed me the other ACTUALLY USEFUL bus route options that I KNOW are available. Now I have to use the weird Apple maps thing and it’s not as good as what google maps used to be. But now it’s all I have. It’s ridiculous.Version: 5.58

Annoying updateIf 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.Version: 5.5

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!.Version: 4.50

Strange bugI wrote a review for a museum I visited today. And then I want to add more picture on it. After I added two more photos, I can't find my previous review, so disappointed. Dear Google, if you want more people to use the app you created, you have to improve the user experience literally. Not just by saying it several times but do nothing on improvement. If there would be a better option of apps with similar functions, I will delete google map forever and never used it again..Version: 5.57

Excellent, but needs a few more tweaks to be truly exceptionalMaps 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..Version: 5.23

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..Version: 5.28

Bugs and inaccuracyApplication 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..Version: 5.38

CarPlay Version can’t be disabledThis 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..Version: 5.3.1

A bugWhen 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!!.Version: 5.56

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..Version: 5.53

Good apThis 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..Version: 5.29

Doesn’t like iPhones muchSo... 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..Version: 5.49

Features are cool but they are missing the pointI 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..Version: 5.4

Recent rerouting and mobile data issueI’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..Version: 5.16

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..Version: 4.41

Bridge Yoga StudioI’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!.Version: 5.3.1

Issue with navigation when using Work or Home quick access buttonsOverall 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..Version: 4.52

Please add the Route Option or avoid toll at the bottomPlease 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!!.Version: 4.41

Please add Sri shortcuts to google mapsJust 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..Version: 5.2
