Speed cameras needed
by Kev26483 on 2018/12/18 21:55
Needs to add warning for speed cameras
Wrong info
by hatchy74 on 2018/12/18 19:01
I use it on a daily basis, shows no traffic where there is traffic and vice versa. Also wrong times on destination arrival.
UPDATE REALLY NEEDED
by charisw on 2018/12/18 18:30
The option to show the motorway and non motorway routes needs to be added! Also work our the glitch that says you are offline WHEN YOU HAVE FULL SIGNAL AND DATA!!!! MAKING ME WANT TO SWAP TO APPLES OWN MAPS BECAUSE GOOGLE IS CRAP
Mercator projection stinks!!!!!
by oomek on 2018/12/18 13:12
Still no globe projection on the IOS? Pathetic.
Still no iPad pro 2018 support
by Aprsdtewjdngy on 2018/12/18 11:25
Looks horrible on new ipad, doesnt use the full screen and instead there are 2 big black bands on the sides
Falling behind it's competitors..
by RealSting on 2018/12/18 11:18
Needs road speeds and speed cameras to keep up with the competition. Traffic is still too General and inaccurate in the uk.
Stupid google apps
by Rocket climb review on 2018/12/18 09:14
Instead of wasting time on Santa tracking fix your YouTube app that freezes after every video, turns the volume to full for no reason and crashes continuously. It is unusable
Google Maps - disappointing!!
by Sos4rebel on 2018/12/18 00:21
I’ve changed from TomTom to use Google Maps!!!! It was always reliable but now it FREEZES 😡😡😡😡 I have no sense of direction and rely heavily on the maps. What is going on - can someone explain 😡😡😡
Wrong currency
by Nj12369 on 2018/12/17 23:44
Updated to the latest version now it’s showing the wrong currency and can’t figure out how to change it
Still no support for iPad Pro 11 screen
by NimbusTLD on 2018/12/17 22:55
At least I can track Santa now
What is going on?
by Markpearson on 2018/12/17 11:55
I use this app for work everyday. It used to be fairly accurate, I’m not sure what’s changed but picking a page in a map and randomly pointing is probably more accurate! It sends me nowhere near anymore, I cant rely on it as it’s taken me to some strange places over the last few months.

Pretty good
by Podge dj on 2018/12/15 17:16
Pretty good. I use most days. Wouldn’t it be a great idea if it had low bridges and weight limits for trucks. Then I’d give it a 5
Frozen screen
by cipfalex on 2018/12/15 11:57
Happy with this app before. Not now. After last update doesn’t work. Service just stopped. S MAX
Explore option
by Undercova on 2018/12/15 08:54
Is there a way if we can get rid of explore banner on main screen. If not can you make an option in settings to remove it if we need to.
Just brilliant app it has helped me so many times !!!

Live traffic . Yeah right
by S900018 on 2018/12/14 09:58
Fix your app. Your not even showing road closures. Your giving directions on where Roads and footpaths are closed ! Sort it out!!
Very bad route planning
by Manojdelhi on 2018/12/13 23:07
I have been using Google maps since a long time but now I find that the app doesn’t plan the route with live and real time traffic situations which keeps me on the road much longer. It seems that data is all available but the compute power required to give the fastest route is missing. Hope google fixes this before some other app/ company takes the lead and gets customers.

Something gone wrong
by Aurora one on 2018/12/13 16:55
Using alternatives to this more each day. Google maps is still good but becoming ever more ‘flakey’ with odd directions. Has me going in circles at times before it suddenly decides to give the correct route.
Great
by Gtp555 on 2018/12/13 14:10
Great new features use google maps all the time 5 stars
No voice navigation?
by Duracell888 on 2018/12/12 19:48
Unable to navigate using voice. Double the quoted delay times and you won’t be far off.
It works well

How old is this map
by Shilling King on 2018/12/11 09:55
Thought this would have updated by now, starting to be a bit dated.

Accurate, clear instructions. Prompts just where you need to turn in case you didn’t get the instruction first time. Reassuring when taking long journeys
Technical hitch
by melanie2376 on 2018/12/10 20:35
Currently having trouble using this to plan a route between two destinations when one isn’t my current location.
King of maps
by Ruislipranger on 2018/12/10 17:37
Absolutely love this app used home and abroad, mainly the USA, the only improvement I could suggest is lane guidance on interstate junctions. Also infuriating deleting history only to have it reappear. Otherwise it’s the only map app worth having. 👍😊 Ruislipranger
Can’t seem to change mode of transport
by Ketan aggarwal on 2018/12/10 16:10
All these updates making such a great app poor. No option to change from walking directions to bus or car. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
So handy
by MW4HW on 2018/12/09 10:32
Love that it gives real time traffic updates

Postcodes have changed
by Shaun-the-sheep72 on 2018/12/08 09:33
I work for a delivery company, I could always rely on google maps to get me to my correct location, but lately, for some reason the postcodes have moved on google maps
Needs speed limit display
by Wargasm010 on 2018/12/08 09:16
Very glad i can now use this with CarPlay in my car but I’d really find it helpful if the speed limits of roads were displayed somewhere on the interface. That would bring it to 5 stars easily.
Good but uses lots of storage
by mce44 on 2018/12/08 07:11
Pros: useful maps and street level views of much of the world Cons: when you first install it the size is on 120Mb but after using for a few months it can grow to 1.2Gb. Deleting offline maps and app data has no reduction effect. I have to delete and reinstall it to get my storage back. Railway lines do not show up well the default version of the maps. If you are interested in public transport routes this is annoying.

Very helpful
by dawiid_1998 on 2018/12/07 09:40
The maps are great, easy to find buildings, side roads and it’s quite accurate however the recent update for Apple Car Play it’s not working well as it’s causing my unit to crash when I put Spotify and Google Maps at the same time, no issue with IPhone maps so if this issue gets resolved am more then happy to use google maps.
Please add a pause function
by Nancydf on 2018/12/07 08:39
I use this app all the time, even to and from work as it helps to avoid the traffic. It is a must on long journeys, but why oh why is there no pause function? Every time I come off the Motorway to get a drink or visit the ladies, it constantly want to reroute me. If there was a pause facility then this could so easily be avoided, please, pleas add it

The best all round mapping app
by Chris hevey on 2018/12/05 12:18
I find the quality of the maps to be pretty good, although the colour contrast could be better. Streetview is extremely useful for many things, not least checking out a place before you go there. The biggest thing for me is the richness of pin data. This is particularly good as most of it is crowdsourced from the public who can add new things and edit mistakes. I’ve compared areas I know well with the other mainstream mapping apps and google wins hands-down
Change voice language
by thcmatrix on 2018/12/05 06:13
I really hope for option language voice change in next version instead of just my iPhone language. That’s really annoying
Takes ages to load
by Smufyliscious on 2018/12/04 20:35
I used to be dependant on this app (like many folks today). I would not use any other map app. However, for some reason, in recent months, it just either takes ages or fails to load any maps. Whether I try satellite or default view...I can see the blue dot for my location but nothing else (as if I’m in the middle of a vast desert with no name). I zoom in, out and nothing. Not good when in a bind and need to quickly work out where I am. Once, if, loaded it is also extremely slow to load routes or find a location I’ve searched for. What’s happened??
Penalty charge
by zingo UK on 2018/12/04 16:10
Dear google map I love your app it’s very useful and has helped me almost every day however I have just received a penalty charge for £60 from Manchester City council because I was driving in Manchester City centre as I needed to pick up my Girlfriend from national express bus station on Portland street as I was following the directions from your map not knowing that it’s only for buses not cars , could please update places like that or use a different route for car drivers like me on places like these to avoid the penalty charges , I would like to thank you in advance if you could do that so we do not have to go through the same problem again as I was directed to go through that route .

Absolute trash!
by beemer221 on 2018/12/04 12:47
This was the go to app for me, now since last couple of updates it is horrible, slow, and takes an absolute age to figure out where you are when starting from a new destination. Really poor! Needs fixing ASAP!
Bad results and direction
by Khalid2007 on 2018/12/03 23:18
I lost my trip because the Google maps give me the wrong direction . I have the pictures screen shot about that . I hope to fix it again .

It is good but you could do with more
by iPodLover007 on 2018/12/03 20:50
It is ok
Bring it back!
by seemsterismine on 2018/12/03 18:23
I use google maps app on iPhone constantly, but suddenly it’s all gone horribly wrong. I don’t want to be forced to use one of the “explore commute for you” options. I just want to open the app and see at a glance what the traffic is like around me. I don’t have one standard commute that I do every day and I’m sure there are others like me! When I finally tried the commute option the screen is full of unhelpful text which I need to be able to push down and away so I can just focus on the map. Please revert ASAP! (Also a bit confused as don’t appear to have any recent updates showing)
Reviewing google map is funny!

Avoiding very narrow roads
by lese1943 on 2018/12/02 23:23
I use Google maps in the UK and would like some way of selecting ‘main’ roads only. Being directed down very narrow lanes because they are theoretically shorter or faster is no good if you are going to meet large agricultural vehicles, or the odd flock of sheep.
Great app.
by paulgibbo on 2018/12/02 22:48
Great app.
Speed cameras warning needed
by Dr hotkiss on 2018/12/02 22:26
Being a taxi driver It’s fantastic app it’s so great that it’s better then any similar apps out there. Everythings top notch apart from it would be great if thy had SPEED CAMERAS WARNINGS and that’s a finishing touch
Google maps
by Farmer Maff on 2018/12/02 11:12
Amazing app as always with most content from google, only thing it lacks is the ability to input your vehicle information ! Probably save a few quid with the rail companies not having to replace low bridges 😉
No good anymore
by johncakexd on 2018/12/01 22:12
the app is not accurate anymore when I'm going to address I'm not even close to it the Old update was better please fix this
Horrible Version Update
by CFEPB on 2018/12/01 21:53
Searching for a location freezes the app. Completely unusable.
Good but not grate
by Ryderdan on 2018/12/01 16:18
Good satnav option but it will always come in second place due to no speed camera or speed limits for the roads. Surely it can’t be that hard to add them in just like Waze, Sygic etc. I hope this is sorted out with a update. It will then take top spot
Good
by yungpetez on 2018/12/01 02:57
Very good app but please in the future when speed cameras are coming up.
No network connection.

App Store preview images are ugly
by joinlygraff on 2018/11/30 00:10
Good app. Should allow location sharing with other apps (like citymapper). Ugly App Store images.
Almost good.
by Oxosbase on 2018/11/28 22:08
I was looking for a particular road in Newark-on-Trent. Where there should be 4 roads, google maps is still showing an old factory. This made me look closer. I started to find quite a few faults and problems. How often does google update ???
Superb app for drivers and daily commute
by kailasshelar24 on 2018/11/28 19:34
Loved it
I live on a different road
by 1948jd on 2018/11/28 18:57
I always use Google maps to find my way to a new destination and really rely on it. However my own house is named on Google maps incorrectly the map says I live on Winsbeach London E17 but in fact I live on Fyfield Road E17 3re. The road changes its name from Winsbeach to Fyfield Road at the first corner. People therefore find it hard to find us.
Not signed in but still knows who I am!
by Dr Lingus on 2018/11/28 18:41
I noticed that even though I have never signed in, the app knows who I am! So I deleted the app and reinstalled it but it STILL knows who I am! Fed up with Google & Facebook spying on me and tracking me. Don't even have a Facebook account, will NOT install Google Chrome and yet both these monsters know far too much about me. Just hate that.
Speed limits need to be added
by sskundhi on 2018/11/28 18:24
Speed limit should be added to the maps
Not able to add in home and work address in your places
by Popssssszz on 2018/11/28 08:25
It will not let me add in home or work address. Every update you have had for the last month has not fixed this problem.
Volume of voice navigation
by MrVintage on 2018/11/27 23:07
Why can I only adjust the volume of the lady's navigation voice whilst she is speaking? She will say something and I won't be able to hear it in the car, so I decide to turn the volume up using the iPhone volume buttons on the side of the handset. BUT if she has stopped talking by the time I try to adjust the volume, the ringer volume is adjusted and not her voice volume! I can only seem to adjust the volume of her voice if I press the handset buttons whilst she is speaking. This is sooooo frustrating. Please fix it. Otherwise it's a decent navigation map.
Speed limit
by mumin2262 on 2018/11/27 20:24
Is it possible to add real time speed limit like WAZE

Almost Brilliant on CarPlay!
by Glowy on 2018/11/27 14:34
This is almost brilliant and is only missing the speed limits to make it the best sat nav I’ve ever used. My built in Sat Nav and Apple Maps have this feature although lacking everything else that Google Maps gives. Please please add this feature.
Why no speed indications?
by OxfordRob on 2018/11/27 09:06
Apple maps have it so why not Google? Please put back speed signs on the display to show what the speed limit is for the toad you are currently on and added bonuses of setting warnings when going over the limit. I’m sure it used to be done? Do that and you can have the 2 stars back and I’ll give a full raving review. ;)
Was good once

Always Crashing
by UnrealTekkerZz on 2018/11/26 16:13
I am an iPhone XS user. Every single time I use Google Maps, at some point ranging between 2-10 minutes of using the app, it crashes. I thought the latest update would’ve solved this, but that’s not the case... is this just me?
Useful sometimes
by SteffiGees on 2018/11/26 12:18
I find it’s useful most of the time but there are times when it takes you the longest route thinking it’s the quickest which often turns out to be incorrect. It’s a great disadvantage that it will only find places from the post code instead of the street name too like it used too,I did provide feedback on this but to no avail.
Bug
by BryonyOB on 2018/11/26 07:59
Has always been great until a few weeks ago when all the roads disappeared. All the layers work fine, but can’t see roads
Can't find it
by bubblesgo on 2018/11/25 20:19
When I select a location, Google maps, says that it doesn't know where it is. Concerning really for a map app! Not impressed
FIX IT
by aditya jhawar on 2018/11/25 19:42
It is showing wrong directions. Please fix it
It doesn’t work
by MikeTheTraveler on 2018/11/24 21:53
When I tap on my timeline, a message says that it cannot reach the server and to check my Internet connection. Obviously there is nothing wrong with my connection, as everything else works just fine. It has also become very slow for some reason. It used to work just fine, but then as usual they thought of fixing it and this is the result: a disaster.
Absolute
by sraoi836 on 2018/11/24 19:49
Never shows exactly where I am! Doesn’t give more then 2 alternative routes even though they’re other ways. Absolute rubbish ! Worst app
Good but features needed
by razsheffield on 2018/11/24 13:38
Love the navigation now but I would say a speed camera and/or report traffic button is needed like in the google run Waze app. I would also say a map editor so if you come across a road google maps thinks is a dead end it can be reported or something.
Need Apple Watch 4 support
by Hotwheel40 on 2018/11/24 11:45
Dear google, Great app but you need Apple Watch ⌚️ 4 support ASAP 😀
What’s with the obsession for busses?
by Alexdr93 on 2018/11/24 09:08
I’m pretty sure whoever designed the public transport section has a fetish for busses. The app does everything in its power to force you to take a bus. Even if you select other options the app manipulates you into taking busses by pretending other modes of transport would take longer. It would be fine if the bus journeys it recommends were in anyway reliable. In reality when it recommends a bus it often sends you to locations nowhere near your intended destination and has an eta that just doesn’t have any connection with common sense. Also the walking directions are extremely unreliable. Not worth the asking price.
Well, it just amazing isn’t it.

No place to really report bugs. For instance the bus times aren’t loading when you select a bus stop and choose the available buses option
iPad Pro issues
by Youdontpayenoughtax on 2018/11/22 22:54
Great app I couldn’t do without. However, when using directions and using it in landscape the app will close and delete your current journey if the screen rotates. Please fix this!

Not good enough
by OscarDug on 2018/11/22 14:23
When I log on to maps, I cant get it to take me from my street to the next street down, all I get is “cannot find destination” I have deleted and reloaded the app many times, it seems to have happened more since the last update.
Great
by ROCKNPOP! on 2018/11/22 13:42
I love this APP! I use it daily eg as a Sat Nav , searching for local businesses and loads more. I especially love the option to download for offline use. I recently used it when I travelled to Paris saving my Mobil data! Keep up the great work guys!!
Sticking

Wrong route twice
by z_| on 2018/11/21 09:15
Google Maps has lead me to the wrong route twice. It’s really annoying.
Great. But beware the ‘AVOID TOLLS’ option! 😡
by sammy-jenkis on 2018/09/05 12:39
Always rely on Google Maps when we’re in the US, and especially liked the ‘Avoid Tolls’ option when you’re in a rental car and don’t want a hefty admin fee from the agency for going through a cashless toll. However I discovered last week that it’s not reliable - drove from Ohio to Staten Island NY with ‘avoid tolls’ selected, no warnings/pop-ups to say anything to the contrary, only to find ourselves at a $15 bridge toll to get over to Staten Island. Turns out there is no way to avoid a toll on to the island, fair enough, but if that’s the case PLEASE GOOGLE can you give us some notification of this when we select the route? I could easily have gone to an ATM and got the money before we got there if I’d known, but the only mention of the toll is hidden away down in the route description, and the top of it still says ‘avoid tolls’. No warnings whatsoever. So I’m now looking at a hefty fine/admin fee that would have been entirely avoidable if the nav info had been more accurate. Yes I know that all New Yorkers are aware there’s a toll, but it was a last minute trip and I trusted google maps to just avoid the tolls if that’s what was selected, or tell me if it wasn’t possible. For future updates, the difference between cash and cashless tolls would be useful info, so we could avoid cashless tolls, but use cash tolls, as that’s what most people out of state are worried about.
Very good, just some volume frustration
by 4rmz94 on 2017/09/24 05:04
Hey, I must say this is a very good free app, it has improved greatly over the last 5 years and I certainly have come to prefer pretty much all aspects of it over iOS maps, only issue is that the music and navigation volumes are not independent. I ride a motorbike so I must use headphones for navigation, usually I do not like to have my music volume too high as I would like to be able to hear if there are hazards approaching (alerting only by their sound, e.g. Fire truck), but when the navigation voice over comes on, the volume is too low, sometimes I end up making the wrong turn, so I turn on the volume during the turn-for-turn notification, and google maps is then at an adequate level but this changing of the volume affects the music playing in the background, and suddenly when that round of google maps instruction is done, the music is blazing in my ears. Why are these two volumes attached, please could you make it separate, as the directions are essentially in app notifications, why don't you attach google maps volume to the ringer volume instead of the music volume, this would've much more convenient, or give it its own separate volume adjuster so that adjusting voice volume doesn't adjust music volume, thank you.
More Google Imaging
by Alice Harrison on 2018/07/08 02:57
Good evening, currently the company I work for at are doing full 360 tours within one of Britain’s largest retailers. I was emailing to enquire whether we could set up a meeting to discuss how our systems could work together I.e links on your maps so the public can look around the stores, properties to buy, land for sale and for other engineering aspects I.e it would help with various permits for access to roofs etc and so people can see various bits they can see clearly which are currently on google maps. We are also currently in the process of creating tours at various universities and schools which our clients are really keen to do for new pupils so they know what to expect and have a quick look around the campus so it won’t be so daunting on the first day which could also I think be linked to your system. If you would like to meet and discuss just so you can see what we currently do and maybe discuss what we could do to help you, with that would be great. Kind Regard Alice Harrison
Amazing app but
by DannyTaylorUK on 2017/11/03 05:38
There is no doubt in my mind that when it comes to navigation apps, the mapping by google maps is way ahead of the competition however a couple of things I feel let the app down and make it feel out of date when comparing to the app to its competitors. Speed limits, with both Waze and Apple maps showing speed limits I feel this is a very useful feature that google maps is missing. The second feature I feel that is missing is when in comes to navigating roundabouts. Again when using waze or Apple maps you get a text indication showing which exit to take where as with google maps you will only get this indication verbally. Despite these two flaws, google maps is my go to navigation app and I do believe that the actually accuracy of the turn by turn navigation is 100x better than the competition and it’s this reason why google maps gets my vote
Worst navigation ever
by Xenia1125 on 2018/11/19 06:52
Not just that it doesn’t show all the bigger routes that can be useable but don’t shows alternatives when you find yourself in front of a road close. Stopped at a petrol station, and after it’s just changed the way and instead to take me home after a 200 miles drive it took me around the town from the other side of the city. Also why the hell does the map starts to rolling around at a junction of the motorway, out of the town, on a difficult road just because the blue line that shows where you have to go crossing itself, so you are not jus unable to see the route properly but also have to improvise until it starts to work again and it gives you 10 minutes extra to your travel time. Getting frozen and turns around just without any reason and shows you going to the wrong way When you have to leave from a crossroads it’s freeze and not telling to turn to the right or to the left, but obviously you can’t wait until it’s fixed because cars behind you, so you turn into a road and than you will se that’s the wrong way so have to drive again extra time When you need to move from a destination to another that’s actually like 200 yard behind you in a different street, this app not going to offer you to turn around but gonna drive you all around and drop you nearly where you just have been It’s a terrible terrible app and caused me tons of stress while I was driving and I’m not going to use it anymore
Something has gone wrong.
by Tgt1977 on 2018/11/02 17:54
I use google maps on most journeys, even routes I know well as I like to know the ETA. Recently when I tell it to take me home, using my saved locations, its shows my home on the map, I tell it to start guidance and then it picks a random point on the map and starts directing me there. The other day for my 15min drive home it wanted to take me to central London, which is two hours away. Today it got me most of the way home before telling me to take a turning I don’t usually take, I followed it as I assumed it was because of some blockage ahead. By the time I worked out it was taking me to another random point on the map, I had driven for the 20 minutes estimated to get home only for me to discover I had been guided to a town half an hour from home. This is an unacceptable glitch which could be considered dangerous, if panicked drivers try to make alterations whilst driving. Please sort this bug out.
Version 4.38
by Foggy headlight on 2017/11/03 12:10
Please remove everything added to this update back to how the previous version was. This new "preview" element is the most useless thing ever. I don't want to "preview" I want to "Go". You are not able to use multi stop function any longer, only in preview mode which is terrible. The screen times out alongside iPhone screensaver rather than being on all the time whilst in the app like previously. The map has stopped automatically moving when your own gps point has moved and you have to manually move yourself (very dangerous if you're driving). It is hard to get it out of compass direction and to follow your own direction automatically. It has removed the ability to see arrival time has been removed, the distance and time to destination doesn't show in preview mode, the distance countdown to the next turn etc has been removed. I would like to navigate to multiple points, not preview them. Please change this!
Problems with car play.
by Juneyse on 2018/10/07 09:38
Hi google. Hope you see this. Got a few problems with google maps on car play. When I’m navigating using google maps, if I get a txt come through my car play will read the txt and then the screen goes back to google maps....but the navigation has stopped. I have to come out of maps and then back in, then suddenly the nav is working again. Also, if I use Siri to do something...let’s say set a reminder for myself. If I’m using google maps, after using Siri, it goes back to google maps (where nav has stopped again!)then goes back to the home screen. I then have to start the nav all over again. This is just two things, my friends are having same issues plus other issues. I know google maps is new to car play, so hopefully things will get sorted soon.
Weird stuff creeping in
by Charlie merrell on 2018/07/06 18:06
I used to rely 100% on Google Maps but recently it seems to have become far less reliable. I’ve just been on a journey where I selected the optional route and pressed start and ended up on the default route anyway. Last week, the app took me off the motorway (leave at exit xyz) routed me next to the motorway (that was flowing freely) for 3 or 4 miles then put me back on. It then only flagged my junction when I was level with it so I missed it, then the alternative route that it said had a 4 minute delay, added 30 minutes to my journey despite me only being 3 minutes from the hold-up. My kids have started to make the same comments. Has something changed? Or has Apple done something now that they are finally trying to develop a decent map? I might be trying other apps anywayz
Why can’t Google maps get my address PIN on the map correct?
by percylongprong on 2018/05/17 04:56
Google maps cannot even place my address so any directions are wrong. I have asked them for years and they show a photo of a block of flats an d say this is my house!!! They insist my house position is 741 London Road. There is no such number (I believe as this was demolished years ago) and this land in Brambleside corner of Hammersley road is now Latter Day Saints church!!! Every now and then for 30+ years I have told them. The google map car came down Brambleside Cul de Sac and took photos of Broderick House, a block of flats like the other 6 Blocks all with numbers 1 to 6 on the name plate and made that my house. Visitors that come to see me I have to give the postcode of HP11 1LE which is a block of flats. Come on Google I will be dead soon Speak to me via email/phone and ask where you are going wrong..I want to give a minus one star but YOU have already placed a ONE star which I cannot remove..

Bug in the system?
by bigdaddi67 on 2017/12/23 09:06
Never ever had a problem till last night. Map kept telling me to go off the main road and choose a parallel road and every time, it ended up as a dead end? It was late at night and foggy so couldn’t see the dead ends till I drove a little. One route even wanted me to drive through, not around, a public park! I was met with a closed gate given the late hour! Not sure why this happened as you’ve always been reliable but when I used another 3rd party map service, the ETA dropped by almost 10 mins for a 4 mile journey. I can imagine it was the ‘short cuts’ it was suggesting but none planned out. One even suggested driving down an alleyway behind a row of houses. I know you collect data from Maps as I can see a lot of info is recorded in the background. If you need more of my details to investigate the route I took yesterday, happy to provide if that helps.
Penalty charge
by zingo UK on 2018/12/04 16:10
Dear google map I love your app it’s very useful and has helped me almost every day however I have just received a penalty charge for £60 from Manchester City council because I was driving in Manchester City centre as I needed to pick up my Girlfriend from national express bus station on Portland street as I was following the directions from your map not knowing that it’s only for buses not cars , could please update places like that or use a different route for car drivers like me on places like these to avoid the penalty charges , I would like to thank you in advance if you could do that so we do not have to go through the same problem again as I was directed to go through that route .
Great but not perfect.
by John Soton on 2018/11/20 19:10
I’ve been using Google Maps for some time and this has been made much smoother and enjoyable using it with CarPlay. There is room for improvement by including the speed limits when mapping a route and the introduction of safety camera locations. Both of these features are available from Google’s other mapping product, WAZE, and it would appear fairly straightforward to include them in the far superior Google Maps. I can’t use Waze myself because it does not work properly with CarPlay in my VW Golf, so come on Google, finish this product properly.
Really disappointed
by Shulz4life on 2018/06/21 07:58
I have used google maps for years for getting around on public transport, and it’s been great. Now I drive it has somehow got a mind of its own. It doesn’t show the correct position when navigating, and can take up to 15 mins or more to corrrct itself. This is not great and very frustrating when you are driving around thinking you are on the wrong route when you have been on the right one all along. Also it doesn’t talk and give directions like it should do!!! I’ve set it up to do that. I don’t want to continuously have to look down at my phone because it’s not calling out the next instruction or any for that matter. I’ve updated my phone to the latest iOS and I’ve updated google maps. Sort it out please.
Great app but I have some issues
by BizzyB1995 on 2018/11/10 12:13
This app is great and I use it all the time. However I’ve had to start looking for a new app because there are a few things that have started to make it a pain: 1) why can’t I rename favourites? That way I could set up like an address book of places I go to often. 2) there is no speed limit icon. This would masked it far easier to be a safe driver and other apps have it so why not this one? 3) why can I either have no sound or 5 little bits of speech for every direction. Is there no in-between? Or an option to select what I want to hear? Or even just an option for a beep when I need to do something so I know to look at the screen.
Best map app, however...
by Rossy the Bossy on 2018/11/02 02:14
About time. This should never have been removed. However here in the UK the address of houses and companies are not very accurate. I would say 85% of places I search for are approx 0.5 to 1 mile from where they are exactly located. For example it says my house is at the other end of our street. Looking for a shop etc it will be half a mile to a mile further up the road than where it is. UPDATE The satnav is excellent and gives good guidance, however it doesn’t know road closures at all. Major bridge closed in one direction, Apple Maps, TomTom know about it but not Google. Speed camera and accurate road closure, speed limits would make this the clear winner.
Do you even deep link bro? 😂
by MrMike1989 on 2018/04/05 22:30
To give this app less than a 5 star review would be preposterous. I mean who are you trying to kid? Like you’re going to find a better satellite navigation app. Having said that, I didn’t actually come here to praise this app, that would be silly, they already know they’re the best. I would instead like to point out one thing that bugs me. Clicking on a Google maps link from safari does not open said location within the app. It just takes you to the App Store lol. I’ve no idea how they’ve messed that up. Quite embarrassing really.
Could do better
by jaguarstr on 2018/01/03 22:34
Reduced this to 2 stars. The new street view navigation is crap you go all over place totally unstable. Adding a way point is not what it seems and is fiddly. Really is not a way point adder at all Reducing to 1 star. Why the bloody hell don't stop fixing things that are not broke. Drop a pin now and you get half the map took up with information at the bottom we don't want. The little street view window was enuf what the hell is the matter with you people. While in my estimation this app is starting to fail. You can get camera info and road speeds by using Waze a sister app of google. However I do think google should look at incorporating this information. If I could give this no stars I would. The one thing that is annoying is when you use the feedback within the app nothing gets done. This app fails to load the street view on the iPad 10.5 pro. You have to try several times to make it load sometimes it works if you totally shut the app, but I known to have to turn iPad on and off. I have told google this several times over a period if a few months and they have not fixed it. This keeps crashing on the iPad 10.5" pro
Google maps has never let me down
by Pedderz... on 2018/02/11 00:50
I’m a person that needs maps to get from A to B regular. Sometimes the road I need becomes a track to the house I might be trying to reach. Even though it might be three quarters of a mile away from the main road it’ll still tell me the exact road I need to be on and it’ll take me all the way to the property I wanna reach. Brilliant five stars. Just please google if you’re going to do an update please don’t give up the the basic version of this app or it’ll spoil it. Please if it’s not broke please don’t try to fix it.
New version a bit temperamental. Could be IOS issue
by ShogunSQ on 2018/03/15 21:19
I had a previous version of google maps on my old iPhone 6 Plus. I did not update IOS software or update google maps app and it all worked seamlessly. I then “upgraded” to a iPhone 6S Plus abc has the latest IOS software pre-installed and had to upgrade to latest version of google maps and it became very temperamental. The location arrow was very erratic, no voice guidance, the arrow would not keep up with the car etc. I had to play about with the phone settings and delete and reload google maps....it seems to be working for now. I still think its the most intuitive and accurate sat nav app.
Good for cars and walking but..
by b2uty5 on 2017/11/27 02:26
I use Google Maps almost every day. It’s always great when I’m in a car, but I’ve recently moved to Europe, where public transpo is more common.. While it’s also good for walking and finding when a bus may arrive at a bus stop, sometimes I simply want to be on the bus and find out what time I’ll arrive at my stop. Instead, Google Maps will assume I’m walking or trying to get where I’m going and give me alternate routes, instead of already being headed to where I want to be. Trying to figure out the next leg of your journey can certainly be important, and you can’t always use data constantly and have the app & route open.
New update 4.38
by lez avvit on 2017/10/25 19:27
I’m getting annoyed with you “ improving” this app . Loved the (add stop ) feature but seems to be missing in the new update ! Very frustrating! Also google messed this great app up when they/you did that thing where when you get to within reach of the destination the screen freaks out and goes into different screen and is hard to figure out where the destination is without severe concentration which is dangerous while driving! Apart from that great app and don’t use anything else so if google can sort these two things will be great app again . Tried to find a way of contacting you directly but couldn’t so that’s why the rubbish review !
New update keeps crashing my whole phone! (7+250gb)
by london_england on 2017/12/20 09:09
New update keeps crashing my whole phone! I’m a taxi driver in London, I do 1000 miles plus a week, I’ve started using religiously, however since new update if using the navigation feature and I come off the app soon as I go back in it freezes, I can’t come out of the app nor even know the correct way then my whole phone freezes, even starts blinking and making distorting sounds. My phone is up to date and no other apps causing problems or freezing phone. Google please please please fix ASAP, apart from not being able to organise favourites and sometimes not knowing banned right/left turns excellent and much better than tomtom and waze. Please sort out ASAP starting to cost me money 😩😩😩😩😩
Mahaythilay
by Mahaythilay on 2017/10/26 21:02
The most useful application on my phone. I only want to suggest is if I want to drive exactly the same as the bus route and do not want to drive on the recommended car driving routes, I have no idea how to customise or change my driving route to be the same with public transport route. Why is I learn the streets going by bus first and I want to drive on those streets avoiding the dual carriageway and motorways as I am a new driver. After learning by bus, I want to go on that route by my car. However, google map cannot change that public transport route as car driving route for me. Apart from the that, ok for me.
Euro Traveller
by coolryd3r on 2018/04/11 09:07
Having used google maps for satnav while driving around the UK has been great .. Google maps come into its own when travelling around Europe ... having used the maps to not only guide me around walking in the city sightseeing... the transit maps for the trains and U-Bahns along with times and station details made getting around so much easier than having to keep looking for assistance... this app has revolutionised my world and feel more confident to travel even more knowing google maps has my back ! 🤘🏼
Has it's own mind
by BinaPleasure on 2017/11/28 13:00
Good free app, but sometimes it has a mind of its own. Changes to satellite view sometimes, super difficult to use navigation on this setting. There have been a few times the app has randomly changed my route without warning, very disorienting. There have also been several times maps has taken me near my destination, but not directly to it. Last night it directed me to the Wicks store near the petrol station I wanted to get to. This wouldn't have been so much of an issue except there was a 15ft bank of grass seperating me and the station. I had to trial and error the connecting car parks to get to the actual station.
Used to be 5 star! - and now it is again!
by Chocca666 on 2018/02/25 08:27
Following my review (below) I followed Google’s suggestion and restarted my phone. The App is back to being the best of its kind. Quick and accurate, does exactly what it says on the tin! Dunno what’s happened but after the latest update my iPhone 7 does seem to like this app. Can find destination, it loads the route but I can’t start the navigation for 15-20 seconds. I know it’s hardly a long length of time, but it used to be instant - and these days that’s expected!
Freezes after latest IOS Update
by YemStar007 on 2017/10/07 09:40
This would be a 5 star because I prefer to even Apple map and sat nav unfortunately after the latest update keep freezing. I know this just need little tweaking because of the latest update but most developers have updated their app even before the iOS release, surprised why this happened with google. It’s a pain when you driving and it freezes on you because you have relied on it even more than your sat nav. I love the real time traffic update, if you can also include speed limit & speed cameras.
Strengths and weaknesses
by FizzyWhizzyPapa on 2018/05/21 16:39
Great free Sat Nav tool if you use it that way. You can see traffic hotspots and instructions are well thought out to be clear and unambiguous. Sadly no way to alter a route slightly. Can add stopping points but Google Maps doesn’t then work out a shortcut back to your main route but makes you double back the way you came and then back to the main route. A long about ! So close to being the only map and navigation tool you need. Come on Google with a tiny bit of extra effort you could easily outclass all the other offerings free or chargeable !!!
Explore / Commute
by sonnofjack on 2018/11/13 17:48
Used to be my preferred navigation App for commuting by car, but since the latest update I’ve found the new Explore / Commute options to be entirely frustrating. I don’t want to see what’s around me on Explore (which is now the default) and the Commute function is just dreadful. The silly peak times graph is so big it takes up half the screen relegating the map to a tiny little window at the top. What was wrong with the Explore / Driving / Transit options previously presented at the bottom of the App? They worked so much better. I can’t understand why that layout needed changing? At least provide a way of changing the default view to Commute so we don’t have to see Explore every time we launch the App?
Speed Limits! Police Speed Cameras!
by Speedfire12 on 2018/02/16 01:36
This app is amazing! It is really fast and gives you a lot of information about what’s around you, restaurants, coffee shops, gas station and etc. However if riding like my self I would like to know the speed limits of every street, because sometimes there aren’t as many signs and it gets confusing. Adding the feature to know if you are going the speed limit is essential to avoid any speeding tickets. Also a feature that allows us the road users to know where speed cameras are will make us slow down.
My go-to when walking from A-B
by meesh-ll on 2018/09/05 05:58
I rely on google maps a lot for walking around, mainly in central London but also when I go on city breaks, and overall it is a brilliant app that makes me feel like a local :) however what I would say is that sometimes you get directed on some routes which don’t feel safe when it’s late and you’re walking on your own, especially in an unfamiliar area. It would be great if you could suggest “Safe” or “Busy” routes which, whilst may take a bit longer, take you on a route down busier roads with more people around.
More colours needed
by Yeliab nevets on 2018/02/10 07:50
I find it difficult to comprehend, how someone can design an app that gives directions so well but highlights the route with a blue line and then uses the same colour blue dot to show your location. The fundamental floor here is at a glance, bearing in mind you are driving and concentrating on not banging your precious motor into anything, you can’t instantly see the dot to know where you are and it’s a dot, not an arrow showing the direction of travel. Google, when will you admit your design fault and change the dot to an arrow any other colour but blue? While your at it, how about adding more colours and shapes for saved places.
A good app gone wrong?
by Billtee on 2017/11/25 21:30
Google Maps are frequently used by me to find my way around Britain and the Continent, but the latest updates have ruined it quite a bit. Where once working your way along a road in Streetview was easy and intuitive, now it is clumsy and things frequently go awry. Once a user could just find an address easily, now we are ‘offered’ all sorts of things - hotels, restaurants, pubs etc which are not wanted or required. We have no option to turn off these ‘features’. Would I recommend this app to someone else? No, I would tell them to stay on Apple’s Maps app.
The best all round mapping app
by Chris hevey on 2018/12/05 12:18
I find the quality of the maps to be pretty good, although the colour contrast could be better. Streetview is extremely useful for many things, not least checking out a place before you go there. The biggest thing for me is the richness of pin data. This is particularly good as most of it is crowdsourced from the public who can add new things and edit mistakes. I’ve compared areas I know well with the other mainstream mapping apps and google wins hands-down
Good but could be improved
by 4 ever chelsea on 2018/07/31 10:33
This is a very good app and it has decreased my journeys by as much as 45 minutes however some aspects that could be improved on are sometimes the maps lag and it’s struggles to keep up with my car often causing me to take the wrong exit or go the wrong way and speed limits would be a nifty little feature as I use this feature quite a lot on apple maps due to having a black box if both these features get added/improved I will edit this review to 5 stars and delete Apple maps to use this as my default navigation app
THANK YOU SO MUCH
by Joe Redford on 2017/09/21 22:13
My name is Joe, and I am visually Impaired. I moved into university a few days ago and I was very upset because I couldn’t read the signs or the maps, rendering my first few days at university very distressing, as I couldn’t get around without assistance. That is, until I discovered Google Maps, and I was showing tears of joy when I could explore the city and the campus independently, using Google Maps’ navigation tool to get around. I have never felt so good about myself. Thank you, Google ❤️
Good, but not brilliant....
by sloughsteve27 on 2018/01/06 18:42
This app has a lot of plus points, but it also lacks those extra little touches like a safety camera add-on or known delays throughout the route not just what you can see on screen. And, as other users have pointed out, the navigational voice-over needs to be independent of any background soundtrack that may or may not be playing. This is a common feature in true satnav apps like Co-Pilot, etc. However, this app has come a long way in the last few years, but there is still a way to go before it can be relied upon fully to replace other more competent competitors.
Crashes when switching back to the app
by Tommy putt on 2018/01/26 08:37
When leaving the app temporarily and switching back to the app, it crashes every time without fail. Bit of a pain, especially if using as a hands free set while driving! But apart from this bug it’s usually flawless. Hoping for an update to fix this issue. I’m using an iPhone X on latest iOS and latest Google Maps version as of submitting this review. *edit: was fixed and back to its perfect state, cheers all!
Vastly superior to Apple's rubbish maps
by Danny in Fulham on 2017/10/24 01:25
I absolutely dislike using Apple supplied Maps on the iPhone. It seems that all train stations are exactly the same for Apple: a London underground station is seen to be no different from another overgroundstation or a national rail station. Google Maps actually show the distinction, and also show you in which direction you are walking. Do you think Apple could learn something from this? Yes! Will they? Not a chance! The company is arrogant and impervious learning anything. So, switch to Google Maps.
Good but some major flaws
by Bru9 on 2018/07/01 16:02
Generally a good navigation app and I’ve used it consistently over the last four years. However three major areas which I’ve noted as room for improvement. FASTER / ALTERNATIVE ROUTE- the app does not take into consideration additional distance when formulating an alternative route. For instance, the App recently tried to divert me to save 8minutes on my journey time but added an additional 35 MILES. This is not acceptable or fuel efficient. The App should make any additional distance clear when offering the alternative route. COMPLICATED/ DELAYED INSTRUCTIONS - the app sometimes can give a series of instructions in a very short space of time and sometimes these are inaccurate. The App often corrects these mistakes quickly but I believe this to be dangerous as can panic a driver. INDEPENDENT VOLUME CONTROLS. I listen to my music moderately loudly on road trips however when the voice instructions come in over the music, it can be deafening.
Fantastic
by Trandall4vd on 2017/12/30 20:28
I used to use Apple maps and that was good however Google maps is far better. With Google you can save hundreds of pins on places unlike one with Apple. The map is easier on the eyes with Google too. You still have the same modes with Google but you do get an additional 'terrain' mode which I always have on, it shows hills/mountains/cliffs/slopes. There is much more you can do with the map however I haven't discovered those yet!
Worst maps ever
by Lupescui on 2017/11/03 05:22
I've been wanting to write a review for Google maps for some time now. I really feel the need to tell Google that they should stop putting out this kind of crap. They have been in this business this long for nothing. If you follow their maps blindly you end up paying tickets every single day. It wants you to turn left or right in places that you are not allowed and even go against the traffic on one ways. Lately it shows petrol stations everywhere although they do not exist. They should fire the morons running Google maps.
Little bit slow
by Syed31 on 2018/09/05 09:00
Hi there google map. I have been using the Google map for awhile but now I can see it’s a little bit slow. I’m using iPhone 8 at the moment, on the navigation map when your vehicle moving to the left or right, the moving arrow very slowly moving left to the right it’s stays in one position for a few seconds. Just a bit of slow. Hope that the new update will make that better thanks.
Great app but the voice search section needs fixing
by Jonathan the pixel Keane on 2018/04/01 15:29
This app is so great but the voice search section needs to be fixed every time when Me and my whole family go out to other countries we always put the voice into a different language but then it changes back to the regular language but they really need to fix the voice search section soon before the next update
Been getting better until last update
by Kujotk on 2018/01/29 19:17
Google maps has been improving over the years, but in the last update of you search a company by name, it use to find it for you on the map, now it just zoomed out to an over view of the country and doesn’t locate the company on the map. Even though on the shortcut where you type the search name it comes up how far away it is. Really frustrating over the last weekend that I went right back to Waze and IOS until this is sorted. Please get good again
New update unsafe
by kaysca162 on 2018/10/11 19:02
I have used this app for a good few years now and have never had a problem with it but have noticed recently that after choosing desired route and driving for a bit, notifications continuously come up saying a faster route has been found and to press no thanks if you want to continue on your current route. It’s unsafe (and illegal) to have to take your attention off the road to do this and gets quite annoying as I choose a specific route for a reason before beginning my journeys.
Good but has issues
by Spudnik1000 on 2018/09/02 16:31
This free app is very good if you want to go from A-B. Not very good for touring. Needs waypoints not just stop points. You can put extra stops into the route but you need to press on the screen to continue next leg when you arrive which is illegal in the uk if your driving. And again when the app finds a quicker route if you want to remain on your original route you need to press the screen to cancel. Needs audio commands to comply with uk rules. Other than that its a good satnav.
Usually I love it but since the update the GPS hasn't worked
by Cheshire276 on 2018/08/31 04:49
Google maps is usually great and so helpful for navigating a new place! However, since the most recent update it has had real trouble telling where I am and today took me on a 20 min detour which I only escaped from by closing the app and reading a map the old fashioned way. It has also been giving directions late, giving directions as though I'm on a different road or just not giving any directions at all. It would be really great if this could be sorted.

Speed cameras needed

Needs to add warning for speed cameras
Wrong info
by hatchy74 on 2018/12/18 19:01
I use it on a daily basis, shows no traffic where there is traffic and vice versa. Also wrong times on destination arrival.
UPDATE REALLY NEEDED
by charisw on 2018/12/18 18:30
The option to show the motorway and non motorway routes needs to be added! Also work our the glitch that says you are offline WHEN YOU HAVE FULL SIGNAL AND DATA!!!! MAKING ME WANT TO SWAP TO APPLES OWN MAPS BECAUSE GOOGLE IS CRAP
Mercator projection stinks!!!!!

Looks horrible on new ipad, doesnt use the full screen and instead there are 2 big black bands on the sides
Falling behind it's competitors..
by RealSting on 2018/12/18 11:18
Needs road speeds and speed cameras to keep up with the competition. Traffic is still too General and inaccurate in the uk.
Stupid google apps
by Rocket climb review on 2018/12/18 09:14
Instead of wasting time on Santa tracking fix your YouTube app that freezes after every video, turns the volume to full for no reason and crashes continuously. It is unusable
Google Maps - disappointing!!
by Sos4rebel on 2018/12/18 00:21
I’ve changed from TomTom to use Google Maps!!!! It was always reliable but now it FREEZES 😡😡😡😡 I have no sense of direction and rely heavily on the maps. What is going on - can someone explain 😡😡😡
Wrong currency
by Nj12369 on 2018/12/17 23:44
Updated to the latest version now it’s showing the wrong currency and can’t figure out how to change it
Still no support for iPad Pro 11 screen
by NimbusTLD on 2018/12/17 22:55
At least I can track Santa now
What is going on?
by Markpearson on 2018/12/17 11:55
I use this app for work everyday. It used to be fairly accurate, I’m not sure what’s changed but picking a page in a map and randomly pointing is probably more accurate! It sends me nowhere near anymore, I cant rely on it as it’s taken me to some strange places over the last few months.

Explore option

Is there a way if we can get rid of explore banner on main screen. If not can you make an option in settings to remove it if we need to.

Live traffic . Yeah right
by S900018 on 2018/12/14 09:58
Fix your app. Your not even showing road closures. Your giving directions on where Roads and footpaths are closed ! Sort it out!!
Very bad route planning
by Manojdelhi on 2018/12/13 23:07
I have been using Google maps since a long time but now I find that the app doesn’t plan the route with live and real time traffic situations which keeps me on the road much longer. It seems that data is all available but the compute power required to give the fastest route is missing. Hope google fixes this before some other app/ company takes the lead and gets customers.

Something gone wrong
by Aurora one on 2018/12/13 16:55
Using alternatives to this more each day. Google maps is still good but becoming ever more ‘flakey’ with odd directions. Has me going in circles at times before it suddenly decides to give the correct route.
Great
by Gtp555 on 2018/12/13 14:10
Great new features use google maps all the time 5 stars
No voice navigation?

Accurate, clear instructions. Prompts just where you need to turn in case you didn’t get the instruction first time. Reassuring when taking long journeys
Technical hitch

Currently having trouble using this to plan a route between two destinations when one isn’t my current location.
King of maps
by Ruislipranger on 2018/12/10 17:37
Absolutely love this app used home and abroad, mainly the USA, the only improvement I could suggest is lane guidance on interstate junctions. Also infuriating deleting history only to have it reappear. Otherwise it’s the only map app worth having. 👍😊 Ruislipranger
Can’t seem to change mode of transport
by Ketan aggarwal on 2018/12/10 16:10
All these updates making such a great app poor. No option to change from walking directions to bus or car. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

by Shaun-the-sheep72 on 2018/12/08 09:33
I work for a delivery company, I could always rely on google maps to get me to my correct location, but lately, for some reason the postcodes have moved on google maps
Needs speed limit display
by Wargasm010 on 2018/12/08 09:16
Very glad i can now use this with CarPlay in my car but I’d really find it helpful if the speed limits of roads were displayed somewhere on the interface. That would bring it to 5 stars easily.
Good but uses lots of storage
by mce44 on 2018/12/08 07:11
Pros: useful maps and street level views of much of the world Cons: when you first install it the size is on 120Mb but after using for a few months it can grow to 1.2Gb. Deleting offline maps and app data has no reduction effect. I have to delete and reinstall it to get my storage back. Railway lines do not show up well the default version of the maps. If you are interested in public transport routes this is annoying.

Very helpful
by dawiid_1998 on 2018/12/07 09:40
The maps are great, easy to find buildings, side roads and it’s quite accurate however the recent update for Apple Car Play it’s not working well as it’s causing my unit to crash when I put Spotify and Google Maps at the same time, no issue with IPhone maps so if this issue gets resolved am more then happy to use google maps.
Please add a pause function
by Nancydf on 2018/12/07 08:39
I use this app all the time, even to and from work as it helps to avoid the traffic. It is a must on long journeys, but why oh why is there no pause function? Every time I come off the Motorway to get a drink or visit the ladies, it constantly want to reroute me. If there was a pause facility then this could so easily be avoided, please, pleas add it

The best all round mapping app
by Chris hevey on 2018/12/05 12:18
I find the quality of the maps to be pretty good, although the colour contrast could be better. Streetview is extremely useful for many things, not least checking out a place before you go there. The biggest thing for me is the richness of pin data. This is particularly good as most of it is crowdsourced from the public who can add new things and edit mistakes. I’ve compared areas I know well with the other mainstream mapping apps and google wins hands-down
Change voice language
by thcmatrix on 2018/12/05 06:13
I really hope for option language voice change in next version instead of just my iPhone language. That’s really annoying
Takes ages to load
by Smufyliscious on 2018/12/04 20:35
I used to be dependant on this app (like many folks today). I would not use any other map app. However, for some reason, in recent months, it just either takes ages or fails to load any maps. Whether I try satellite or default view...I can see the blue dot for my location but nothing else (as if I’m in the middle of a vast desert with no name). I zoom in, out and nothing. Not good when in a bind and need to quickly work out where I am. Once, if, loaded it is also extremely slow to load routes or find a location I’ve searched for. What’s happened??
Penalty charge
by zingo UK on 2018/12/04 16:10
Dear google map I love your app it’s very useful and has helped me almost every day however I have just received a penalty charge for £60 from Manchester City council because I was driving in Manchester City centre as I needed to pick up my Girlfriend from national express bus station on Portland street as I was following the directions from your map not knowing that it’s only for buses not cars , could please update places like that or use a different route for car drivers like me on places like these to avoid the penalty charges , I would like to thank you in advance if you could do that so we do not have to go through the same problem again as I was directed to go through that route .

This was the go to app for me, now since last couple of updates it is horrible, slow, and takes an absolute age to figure out where you are when starting from a new destination. Really poor! Needs fixing ASAP!
Bad results and direction
by Khalid2007 on 2018/12/03 23:18

Bring it back!
by seemsterismine on 2018/12/03 18:23
I use google maps app on iPhone constantly, but suddenly it’s all gone horribly wrong. I don’t want to be forced to use one of the “explore commute for you” options. I just want to open the app and see at a glance what the traffic is like around me. I don’t have one standard commute that I do every day and I’m sure there are others like me! When I finally tried the commute option the screen is full of unhelpful text which I need to be able to push down and away so I can just focus on the map. Please revert ASAP! (Also a bit confused as don’t appear to have any recent updates showing)
Reviewing google map is funny!

Avoiding very narrow roads
by lese1943 on 2018/12/02 23:23
I use Google maps in the UK and would like some way of selecting ‘main’ roads only. Being directed down very narrow lanes because they are theoretically shorter or faster is no good if you are going to meet large agricultural vehicles, or the odd flock of sheep.
Great app.
by paulgibbo on 2018/12/02 22:48
Great app.
Speed cameras warning needed
by Dr hotkiss on 2018/12/02 22:26
Being a taxi driver It’s fantastic app it’s so great that it’s better then any similar apps out there. Everythings top notch apart from it would be great if thy had SPEED CAMERAS WARNINGS and that’s a finishing touch
Google maps
by Farmer Maff on 2018/12/02 11:12
Amazing app as always with most content from google, only thing it lacks is the ability to input your vehicle information ! Probably save a few quid with the rail companies not having to replace low bridges 😉
No good anymore
by johncakexd on 2018/12/01 22:12
the app is not accurate anymore when I'm going to address I'm not even close to it the Old update was better please fix this
Horrible Version Update
by CFEPB on 2018/12/01 21:53
Searching for a location freezes the app. Completely unusable.
Good but not grate
by Ryderdan on 2018/12/01 16:18
Good satnav option but it will always come in second place due to no speed camera or speed limits for the roads. Surely it can’t be that hard to add them in just like Waze, Sygic etc. I hope this is sorted out with a update. It will then take top spot
Good
by yungpetez on 2018/12/01 02:57
Very good app but please in the future when speed cameras are coming up.
No network connection.

App Store preview images are ugly
by joinlygraff on 2018/11/30 00:10
Good app. Should allow location sharing with other apps (like citymapper). Ugly App Store images.
Almost good.
by Oxosbase on 2018/11/28 22:08
I was looking for a particular road in Newark-on-Trent. Where there should be 4 roads, google maps is still showing an old factory. This made me look closer. I started to find quite a few faults and problems. How often does google update ???
Superb app for drivers and daily commute
by kailasshelar24 on 2018/11/28 19:34
Loved it
I live on a different road
by 1948jd on 2018/11/28 18:57
I always use Google maps to find my way to a new destination and really rely on it. However my own house is named on Google maps incorrectly the map says I live on Winsbeach London E17 but in fact I live on Fyfield Road E17 3re. The road changes its name from Winsbeach to Fyfield Road at the first corner. People therefore find it hard to find us.
Not signed in but still knows who I am!
by Dr Lingus on 2018/11/28 18:41
I noticed that even though I have never signed in, the app knows who I am! So I deleted the app and reinstalled it but it STILL knows who I am! Fed up with Google & Facebook spying on me and tracking me. Don't even have a Facebook account, will NOT install Google Chrome and yet both these monsters know far too much about me. Just hate that.
Speed limits need to be added
by sskundhi on 2018/11/28 18:24
Speed limit should be added to the maps
Not able to add in home and work address in your places
by Popssssszz on 2018/11/28 08:25
It will not let me add in home or work address. Every update you have had for the last month has not fixed this problem.
Volume of voice navigation
by MrVintage on 2018/11/27 23:07
Why can I only adjust the volume of the lady's navigation voice whilst she is speaking? She will say something and I won't be able to hear it in the car, so I decide to turn the volume up using the iPhone volume buttons on the side of the handset. BUT if she has stopped talking by the time I try to adjust the volume, the ringer volume is adjusted and not her voice volume! I can only seem to adjust the volume of her voice if I press the handset buttons whilst she is speaking. This is sooooo frustrating. Please fix it. Otherwise it's a decent navigation map.
Speed limit
by mumin2262 on 2018/11/27 20:24
Is it possible to add real time speed limit like WAZE

Almost Brilliant on CarPlay!
by Glowy on 2018/11/27 14:34
This is almost brilliant and is only missing the speed limits to make it the best sat nav I’ve ever used. My built in Sat Nav and Apple Maps have this feature although lacking everything else that Google Maps gives. Please please add this feature.
Why no speed indications?
by OxfordRob on 2018/11/27 09:06
Apple maps have it so why not Google? Please put back speed signs on the display to show what the speed limit is for the toad you are currently on and added bonuses of setting warnings when going over the limit. I’m sure it used to be done? Do that and you can have the 2 stars back and I’ll give a full raving review. ;)

Always Crashing
by UnrealTekkerZz on 2018/11/26 16:13
I am an iPhone XS user. Every single time I use Google Maps, at some point ranging between 2-10 minutes of using the app, it crashes. I thought the latest update would’ve solved this, but that’s not the case... is this just me?
Useful sometimes
by SteffiGees on 2018/11/26 12:18
I find it’s useful most of the time but there are times when it takes you the longest route thinking it’s the quickest which often turns out to be incorrect. It’s a great disadvantage that it will only find places from the post code instead of the street name too like it used too,I did provide feedback on this but to no avail.
Bug
by BryonyOB on 2018/11/26 07:59
Has always been great until a few weeks ago when all the roads disappeared. All the layers work fine, but can’t see roads
Can't find it
by bubblesgo on 2018/11/25 20:19
When I select a location, Google maps, says that it doesn't know where it is. Concerning really for a map app! Not impressed
FIX IT

It doesn’t work
by MikeTheTraveler on 2018/11/24 21:53
When I tap on my timeline, a message says that it cannot reach the server and to check my Internet connection. Obviously there is nothing wrong with my connection, as everything else works just fine. It has also become very slow for some reason. It used to work just fine, but then as usual they thought of fixing it and this is the result: a disaster.
Absolute
by sraoi836 on 2018/11/24 19:49
Never shows exactly where I am! Doesn’t give more then 2 alternative routes even though they’re other ways. Absolute rubbish ! Worst app
Good but features needed
by razsheffield on 2018/11/24 13:38
Love the navigation now but I would say a speed camera and/or report traffic button is needed like in the google run Waze app. I would also say a map editor so if you come across a road google maps thinks is a dead end it can be reported or something.
Need Apple Watch 4 support
by Hotwheel40 on 2018/11/24 11:45
Dear google, Great app but you need Apple Watch ⌚️ 4 support ASAP 😀
What’s with the obsession for busses?
by Alexdr93 on 2018/11/24 09:08
I’m pretty sure whoever designed the public transport section has a fetish for busses. The app does everything in its power to force you to take a bus. Even if you select other options the app manipulates you into taking busses by pretending other modes of transport would take longer. It would be fine if the bus journeys it recommends were in anyway reliable. In reality when it recommends a bus it often sends you to locations nowhere near your intended destination and has an eta that just doesn’t have any connection with common sense. Also the walking directions are extremely unreliable. Not worth the asking price.
Well, it just amazing isn’t it.

No place to really report bugs. For instance the bus times aren’t loading when you select a bus stop and choose the available buses option
iPad Pro issues

Great app I couldn’t do without. However, when using directions and using it in landscape the app will close and delete your current journey if the screen rotates. Please fix this!

by OscarDug on 2018/11/22 14:23
When I log on to maps, I cant get it to take me from my street to the next street down, all I get is “cannot find destination” I have deleted and reloaded the app many times, it seems to have happened more since the last update.
Great
by ROCKNPOP! on 2018/11/22 13:42
I love this APP! I use it daily eg as a Sat Nav , searching for local businesses and loads more. I especially love the option to download for offline use. I recently used it when I travelled to Paris saving my Mobil data! Keep up the great work guys!!

Wrong route twice
by z_| on 2018/11/21 09:15
Google Maps has lead me to the wrong route twice. It’s really annoying.
Great. But beware the ‘AVOID TOLLS’ option! 😡
by sammy-jenkis on 2018/09/05 12:39
Always rely on Google Maps when we’re in the US, and especially liked the ‘Avoid Tolls’ option when you’re in a rental car and don’t want a hefty admin fee from the agency for going through a cashless toll. However I discovered last week that it’s not reliable - drove from Ohio to Staten Island NY with ‘avoid tolls’ selected, no warnings/pop-ups to say anything to the contrary, only to find ourselves at a $15 bridge toll to get over to Staten Island. Turns out there is no way to avoid a toll on to the island, fair enough, but if that’s the case PLEASE GOOGLE can you give us some notification of this when we select the route? I could easily have gone to an ATM and got the money before we got there if I’d known, but the only mention of the toll is hidden away down in the route description, and the top of it still says ‘avoid tolls’. No warnings whatsoever. So I’m now looking at a hefty fine/admin fee that would have been entirely avoidable if the nav info had been more accurate. Yes I know that all New Yorkers are aware there’s a toll, but it was a last minute trip and I trusted google maps to just avoid the tolls if that’s what was selected, or tell me if it wasn’t possible. For future updates, the difference between cash and cashless tolls would be useful info, so we could avoid cashless tolls, but use cash tolls, as that’s what most people out of state are worried about.
Very good, just some volume frustration
by 4rmz94 on 2017/09/24 05:04
Hey, I must say this is a very good free app, it has improved greatly over the last 5 years and I certainly have come to prefer pretty much all aspects of it over iOS maps, only issue is that the music and navigation volumes are not independent. I ride a motorbike so I must use headphones for navigation, usually I do not like to have my music volume too high as I would like to be able to hear if there are hazards approaching (alerting only by their sound, e.g. Fire truck), but when the navigation voice over comes on, the volume is too low, sometimes I end up making the wrong turn, so I turn on the volume during the turn-for-turn notification, and google maps is then at an adequate level but this changing of the volume affects the music playing in the background, and suddenly when that round of google maps instruction is done, the music is blazing in my ears. Why are these two volumes attached, please could you make it separate, as the directions are essentially in app notifications, why don't you attach google maps volume to the ringer volume instead of the music volume, this would've much more convenient, or give it its own separate volume adjuster so that adjusting voice volume doesn't adjust music volume, thank you.
More Google Imaging
by Alice Harrison on 2018/07/08 02:57
Good evening, currently the company I work for at are doing full 360 tours within one of Britain’s largest retailers. I was emailing to enquire whether we could set up a meeting to discuss how our systems could work together I.e links on your maps so the public can look around the stores, properties to buy, land for sale and for other engineering aspects I.e it would help with various permits for access to roofs etc and so people can see various bits they can see clearly which are currently on google maps. We are also currently in the process of creating tours at various universities and schools which our clients are really keen to do for new pupils so they know what to expect and have a quick look around the campus so it won’t be so daunting on the first day which could also I think be linked to your system. If you would like to meet and discuss just so you can see what we currently do and maybe discuss what we could do to help you, with that would be great. Kind Regard Alice Harrison
Amazing app but
by DannyTaylorUK on 2017/11/03 05:38
There is no doubt in my mind that when it comes to navigation apps, the mapping by google maps is way ahead of the competition however a couple of things I feel let the app down and make it feel out of date when comparing to the app to its competitors. Speed limits, with both Waze and Apple maps showing speed limits I feel this is a very useful feature that google maps is missing. The second feature I feel that is missing is when in comes to navigating roundabouts. Again when using waze or Apple maps you get a text indication showing which exit to take where as with google maps you will only get this indication verbally. Despite these two flaws, google maps is my go to navigation app and I do believe that the actually accuracy of the turn by turn navigation is 100x better than the competition and it’s this reason why google maps gets my vote
Worst navigation ever
by Xenia1125 on 2018/11/19 06:52
Not just that it doesn’t show all the bigger routes that can be useable but don’t shows alternatives when you find yourself in front of a road close. Stopped at a petrol station, and after it’s just changed the way and instead to take me home after a 200 miles drive it took me around the town from the other side of the city. Also why the hell does the map starts to rolling around at a junction of the motorway, out of the town, on a difficult road just because the blue line that shows where you have to go crossing itself, so you are not jus unable to see the route properly but also have to improvise until it starts to work again and it gives you 10 minutes extra to your travel time. Getting frozen and turns around just without any reason and shows you going to the wrong way When you have to leave from a crossroads it’s freeze and not telling to turn to the right or to the left, but obviously you can’t wait until it’s fixed because cars behind you, so you turn into a road and than you will se that’s the wrong way so have to drive again extra time When you need to move from a destination to another that’s actually like 200 yard behind you in a different street, this app not going to offer you to turn around but gonna drive you all around and drop you nearly where you just have been It’s a terrible terrible app and caused me tons of stress while I was driving and I’m not going to use it anymore
Something has gone wrong.
by Tgt1977 on 2018/11/02 17:54
I use google maps on most journeys, even routes I know well as I like to know the ETA. Recently when I tell it to take me home, using my saved locations, its shows my home on the map, I tell it to start guidance and then it picks a random point on the map and starts directing me there. The other day for my 15min drive home it wanted to take me to central London, which is two hours away. Today it got me most of the way home before telling me to take a turning I don’t usually take, I followed it as I assumed it was because of some blockage ahead. By the time I worked out it was taking me to another random point on the map, I had driven for the 20 minutes estimated to get home only for me to discover I had been guided to a town half an hour from home. This is an unacceptable glitch which could be considered dangerous, if panicked drivers try to make alterations whilst driving. Please sort this bug out.
Version 4.38
by Foggy headlight on 2017/11/03 12:10
Please remove everything added to this update back to how the previous version was. This new "preview" element is the most useless thing ever. I don't want to "preview" I want to "Go". You are not able to use multi stop function any longer, only in preview mode which is terrible. The screen times out alongside iPhone screensaver rather than being on all the time whilst in the app like previously. The map has stopped automatically moving when your own gps point has moved and you have to manually move yourself (very dangerous if you're driving). It is hard to get it out of compass direction and to follow your own direction automatically. It has removed the ability to see arrival time has been removed, the distance and time to destination doesn't show in preview mode, the distance countdown to the next turn etc has been removed. I would like to navigate to multiple points, not preview them. Please change this!
Problems with car play.
by Juneyse on 2018/10/07 09:38
Hi google. Hope you see this. Got a few problems with google maps on car play. When I’m navigating using google maps, if I get a txt come through my car play will read the txt and then the screen goes back to google maps....but the navigation has stopped. I have to come out of maps and then back in, then suddenly the nav is working again. Also, if I use Siri to do something...let’s say set a reminder for myself. If I’m using google maps, after using Siri, it goes back to google maps (where nav has stopped again!)then goes back to the home screen. I then have to start the nav all over again. This is just two things, my friends are having same issues plus other issues. I know google maps is new to car play, so hopefully things will get sorted soon.
Weird stuff creeping in
by Charlie merrell on 2018/07/06 18:06
I used to rely 100% on Google Maps but recently it seems to have become far less reliable. I’ve just been on a journey where I selected the optional route and pressed start and ended up on the default route anyway. Last week, the app took me off the motorway (leave at exit xyz) routed me next to the motorway (that was flowing freely) for 3 or 4 miles then put me back on. It then only flagged my junction when I was level with it so I missed it, then the alternative route that it said had a 4 minute delay, added 30 minutes to my journey despite me only being 3 minutes from the hold-up. My kids have started to make the same comments. Has something changed? Or has Apple done something now that they are finally trying to develop a decent map? I might be trying other apps anywayz
Why can’t Google maps get my address PIN on the map correct?
by percylongprong on 2018/05/17 04:56
Google maps cannot even place my address so any directions are wrong. I have asked them for years and they show a photo of a block of flats an d say this is my house!!! They insist my house position is 741 London Road. There is no such number (I believe as this was demolished years ago) and this land in Brambleside corner of Hammersley road is now Latter Day Saints church!!! Every now and then for 30+ years I have told them. The google map car came down Brambleside Cul de Sac and took photos of Broderick House, a block of flats like the other 6 Blocks all with numbers 1 to 6 on the name plate and made that my house. Visitors that come to see me I have to give the postcode of HP11 1LE which is a block of flats. Come on Google I will be dead soon Speak to me via email/phone and ask where you are going wrong..I want to give a minus one star but YOU have already placed a ONE star which I cannot remove..

Bug in the system?
by bigdaddi67 on 2017/12/23 09:06
Never ever had a problem till last night. Map kept telling me to go off the main road and choose a parallel road and every time, it ended up as a dead end? It was late at night and foggy so couldn’t see the dead ends till I drove a little. One route even wanted me to drive through, not around, a public park! I was met with a closed gate given the late hour! Not sure why this happened as you’ve always been reliable but when I used another 3rd party map service, the ETA dropped by almost 10 mins for a 4 mile journey. I can imagine it was the ‘short cuts’ it was suggesting but none planned out. One even suggested driving down an alleyway behind a row of houses. I know you collect data from Maps as I can see a lot of info is recorded in the background. If you need more of my details to investigate the route I took yesterday, happy to provide if that helps.
Penalty charge
by zingo UK on 2018/12/04 16:10
Dear google map I love your app it’s very useful and has helped me almost every day however I have just received a penalty charge for £60 from Manchester City council because I was driving in Manchester City centre as I needed to pick up my Girlfriend from national express bus station on Portland street as I was following the directions from your map not knowing that it’s only for buses not cars , could please update places like that or use a different route for car drivers like me on places like these to avoid the penalty charges , I would like to thank you in advance if you could do that so we do not have to go through the same problem again as I was directed to go through that route .
Great but not perfect.
by John Soton on 2018/11/20 19:10
I’ve been using Google Maps for some time and this has been made much smoother and enjoyable using it with CarPlay. There is room for improvement by including the speed limits when mapping a route and the introduction of safety camera locations. Both of these features are available from Google’s other mapping product, WAZE, and it would appear fairly straightforward to include them in the far superior Google Maps. I can’t use Waze myself because it does not work properly with CarPlay in my VW Golf, so come on Google, finish this product properly.
Really disappointed
by Shulz4life on 2018/06/21 07:58
I have used google maps for years for getting around on public transport, and it’s been great. Now I drive it has somehow got a mind of its own. It doesn’t show the correct position when navigating, and can take up to 15 mins or more to corrrct itself. This is not great and very frustrating when you are driving around thinking you are on the wrong route when you have been on the right one all along. Also it doesn’t talk and give directions like it should do!!! I’ve set it up to do that. I don’t want to continuously have to look down at my phone because it’s not calling out the next instruction or any for that matter. I’ve updated my phone to the latest iOS and I’ve updated google maps. Sort it out please.
Great app but I have some issues
by BizzyB1995 on 2018/11/10 12:13
This app is great and I use it all the time. However I’ve had to start looking for a new app because there are a few things that have started to make it a pain: 1) why can’t I rename favourites? That way I could set up like an address book of places I go to often. 2) there is no speed limit icon. This would masked it far easier to be a safe driver and other apps have it so why not this one? 3) why can I either have no sound or 5 little bits of speech for every direction. Is there no in-between? Or an option to select what I want to hear? Or even just an option for a beep when I need to do something so I know to look at the screen.
Best map app, however...
by Rossy the Bossy on 2018/11/02 02:14
About time. This should never have been removed. However here in the UK the address of houses and companies are not very accurate. I would say 85% of places I search for are approx 0.5 to 1 mile from where they are exactly located. For example it says my house is at the other end of our street. Looking for a shop etc it will be half a mile to a mile further up the road than where it is. UPDATE The satnav is excellent and gives good guidance, however it doesn’t know road closures at all. Major bridge closed in one direction, Apple Maps, TomTom know about it but not Google. Speed camera and accurate road closure, speed limits would make this the clear winner.
Do you even deep link bro? 😂
by MrMike1989 on 2018/04/05 22:30
To give this app less than a 5 star review would be preposterous. I mean who are you trying to kid? Like you’re going to find a better satellite navigation app. Having said that, I didn’t actually come here to praise this app, that would be silly, they already know they’re the best. I would instead like to point out one thing that bugs me. Clicking on a Google maps link from safari does not open said location within the app. It just takes you to the App Store lol. I’ve no idea how they’ve messed that up. Quite embarrassing really.
Could do better
by jaguarstr on 2018/01/03 22:34
Reduced this to 2 stars. The new street view navigation is crap you go all over place totally unstable. Adding a way point is not what it seems and is fiddly. Really is not a way point adder at all Reducing to 1 star. Why the bloody hell don't stop fixing things that are not broke. Drop a pin now and you get half the map took up with information at the bottom we don't want. The little street view window was enuf what the hell is the matter with you people. While in my estimation this app is starting to fail. You can get camera info and road speeds by using Waze a sister app of google. However I do think google should look at incorporating this information. If I could give this no stars I would. The one thing that is annoying is when you use the feedback within the app nothing gets done. This app fails to load the street view on the iPad 10.5 pro. You have to try several times to make it load sometimes it works if you totally shut the app, but I known to have to turn iPad on and off. I have told google this several times over a period if a few months and they have not fixed it. This keeps crashing on the iPad 10.5" pro
Google maps has never let me down
by Pedderz... on 2018/02/11 00:50
I’m a person that needs maps to get from A to B regular. Sometimes the road I need becomes a track to the house I might be trying to reach. Even though it might be three quarters of a mile away from the main road it’ll still tell me the exact road I need to be on and it’ll take me all the way to the property I wanna reach. Brilliant five stars. Just please google if you’re going to do an update please don’t give up the the basic version of this app or it’ll spoil it. Please if it’s not broke please don’t try to fix it.
New version a bit temperamental. Could be IOS issue
by ShogunSQ on 2018/03/15 21:19
I had a previous version of google maps on my old iPhone 6 Plus. I did not update IOS software or update google maps app and it all worked seamlessly. I then “upgraded” to a iPhone 6S Plus abc has the latest IOS software pre-installed and had to upgrade to latest version of google maps and it became very temperamental. The location arrow was very erratic, no voice guidance, the arrow would not keep up with the car etc. I had to play about with the phone settings and delete and reload google maps....it seems to be working for now. I still think its the most intuitive and accurate sat nav app.
Good for cars and walking but..
by b2uty5 on 2017/11/27 02:26
I use Google Maps almost every day. It’s always great when I’m in a car, but I’ve recently moved to Europe, where public transpo is more common.. While it’s also good for walking and finding when a bus may arrive at a bus stop, sometimes I simply want to be on the bus and find out what time I’ll arrive at my stop. Instead, Google Maps will assume I’m walking or trying to get where I’m going and give me alternate routes, instead of already being headed to where I want to be. Trying to figure out the next leg of your journey can certainly be important, and you can’t always use data constantly and have the app & route open.
New update 4.38
by lez avvit on 2017/10/25 19:27
I’m getting annoyed with you “ improving” this app . Loved the (add stop ) feature but seems to be missing in the new update ! Very frustrating! Also google messed this great app up when they/you did that thing where when you get to within reach of the destination the screen freaks out and goes into different screen and is hard to figure out where the destination is without severe concentration which is dangerous while driving! Apart from that great app and don’t use anything else so if google can sort these two things will be great app again . Tried to find a way of contacting you directly but couldn’t so that’s why the rubbish review !
New update keeps crashing my whole phone! (7+250gb)
by london_england on 2017/12/20 09:09
New update keeps crashing my whole phone! I’m a taxi driver in London, I do 1000 miles plus a week, I’ve started using religiously, however since new update if using the navigation feature and I come off the app soon as I go back in it freezes, I can’t come out of the app nor even know the correct way then my whole phone freezes, even starts blinking and making distorting sounds. My phone is up to date and no other apps causing problems or freezing phone. Google please please please fix ASAP, apart from not being able to organise favourites and sometimes not knowing banned right/left turns excellent and much better than tomtom and waze. Please sort out ASAP starting to cost me money 😩😩😩😩😩
Mahaythilay
by Mahaythilay on 2017/10/26 21:02
The most useful application on my phone. I only want to suggest is if I want to drive exactly the same as the bus route and do not want to drive on the recommended car driving routes, I have no idea how to customise or change my driving route to be the same with public transport route. Why is I learn the streets going by bus first and I want to drive on those streets avoiding the dual carriageway and motorways as I am a new driver. After learning by bus, I want to go on that route by my car. However, google map cannot change that public transport route as car driving route for me. Apart from the that, ok for me.
Euro Traveller
by coolryd3r on 2018/04/11 09:07
Having used google maps for satnav while driving around the UK has been great .. Google maps come into its own when travelling around Europe ... having used the maps to not only guide me around walking in the city sightseeing... the transit maps for the trains and U-Bahns along with times and station details made getting around so much easier than having to keep looking for assistance... this app has revolutionised my world and feel more confident to travel even more knowing google maps has my back ! 🤘🏼
Has it's own mind
by BinaPleasure on 2017/11/28 13:00
Good free app, but sometimes it has a mind of its own. Changes to satellite view sometimes, super difficult to use navigation on this setting. There have been a few times the app has randomly changed my route without warning, very disorienting. There have also been several times maps has taken me near my destination, but not directly to it. Last night it directed me to the Wicks store near the petrol station I wanted to get to. This wouldn't have been so much of an issue except there was a 15ft bank of grass seperating me and the station. I had to trial and error the connecting car parks to get to the actual station.
Used to be 5 star! - and now it is again!
by Chocca666 on 2018/02/25 08:27
Following my review (below) I followed Google’s suggestion and restarted my phone. The App is back to being the best of its kind. Quick and accurate, does exactly what it says on the tin! Dunno what’s happened but after the latest update my iPhone 7 does seem to like this app. Can find destination, it loads the route but I can’t start the navigation for 15-20 seconds. I know it’s hardly a long length of time, but it used to be instant - and these days that’s expected!
Freezes after latest IOS Update
by YemStar007 on 2017/10/07 09:40
This would be a 5 star because I prefer to even Apple map and sat nav unfortunately after the latest update keep freezing. I know this just need little tweaking because of the latest update but most developers have updated their app even before the iOS release, surprised why this happened with google. It’s a pain when you driving and it freezes on you because you have relied on it even more than your sat nav. I love the real time traffic update, if you can also include speed limit & speed cameras.
Strengths and weaknesses
by FizzyWhizzyPapa on 2018/05/21 16:39
Great free Sat Nav tool if you use it that way. You can see traffic hotspots and instructions are well thought out to be clear and unambiguous. Sadly no way to alter a route slightly. Can add stopping points but Google Maps doesn’t then work out a shortcut back to your main route but makes you double back the way you came and then back to the main route. A long about ! So close to being the only map and navigation tool you need. Come on Google with a tiny bit of extra effort you could easily outclass all the other offerings free or chargeable !!!
Explore / Commute
by sonnofjack on 2018/11/13 17:48
Used to be my preferred navigation App for commuting by car, but since the latest update I’ve found the new Explore / Commute options to be entirely frustrating. I don’t want to see what’s around me on Explore (which is now the default) and the Commute function is just dreadful. The silly peak times graph is so big it takes up half the screen relegating the map to a tiny little window at the top. What was wrong with the Explore / Driving / Transit options previously presented at the bottom of the App? They worked so much better. I can’t understand why that layout needed changing? At least provide a way of changing the default view to Commute so we don’t have to see Explore every time we launch the App?
Speed Limits! Police Speed Cameras!
by Speedfire12 on 2018/02/16 01:36
This app is amazing! It is really fast and gives you a lot of information about what’s around you, restaurants, coffee shops, gas station and etc. However if riding like my self I would like to know the speed limits of every street, because sometimes there aren’t as many signs and it gets confusing. Adding the feature to know if you are going the speed limit is essential to avoid any speeding tickets. Also a feature that allows us the road users to know where speed cameras are will make us slow down.
My go-to when walking from A-B
by meesh-ll on 2018/09/05 05:58
I rely on google maps a lot for walking around, mainly in central London but also when I go on city breaks, and overall it is a brilliant app that makes me feel like a local :) however what I would say is that sometimes you get directed on some routes which don’t feel safe when it’s late and you’re walking on your own, especially in an unfamiliar area. It would be great if you could suggest “Safe” or “Busy” routes which, whilst may take a bit longer, take you on a route down busier roads with more people around.
More colours needed
by Yeliab nevets on 2018/02/10 07:50
I find it difficult to comprehend, how someone can design an app that gives directions so well but highlights the route with a blue line and then uses the same colour blue dot to show your location. The fundamental floor here is at a glance, bearing in mind you are driving and concentrating on not banging your precious motor into anything, you can’t instantly see the dot to know where you are and it’s a dot, not an arrow showing the direction of travel. Google, when will you admit your design fault and change the dot to an arrow any other colour but blue? While your at it, how about adding more colours and shapes for saved places.
A good app gone wrong?
by Billtee on 2017/11/25 21:30
Google Maps are frequently used by me to find my way around Britain and the Continent, but the latest updates have ruined it quite a bit. Where once working your way along a road in Streetview was easy and intuitive, now it is clumsy and things frequently go awry. Once a user could just find an address easily, now we are ‘offered’ all sorts of things - hotels, restaurants, pubs etc which are not wanted or required. We have no option to turn off these ‘features’. Would I recommend this app to someone else? No, I would tell them to stay on Apple’s Maps app.
The best all round mapping app
by Chris hevey on 2018/12/05 12:18
I find the quality of the maps to be pretty good, although the colour contrast could be better. Streetview is extremely useful for many things, not least checking out a place before you go there. The biggest thing for me is the richness of pin data. This is particularly good as most of it is crowdsourced from the public who can add new things and edit mistakes. I’ve compared areas I know well with the other mainstream mapping apps and google wins hands-down
Good but could be improved
by 4 ever chelsea on 2018/07/31 10:33
This is a very good app and it has decreased my journeys by as much as 45 minutes however some aspects that could be improved on are sometimes the maps lag and it’s struggles to keep up with my car often causing me to take the wrong exit or go the wrong way and speed limits would be a nifty little feature as I use this feature quite a lot on apple maps due to having a black box if both these features get added/improved I will edit this review to 5 stars and delete Apple maps to use this as my default navigation app
THANK YOU SO MUCH
by Joe Redford on 2017/09/21 22:13
My name is Joe, and I am visually Impaired. I moved into university a few days ago and I was very upset because I couldn’t read the signs or the maps, rendering my first few days at university very distressing, as I couldn’t get around without assistance. That is, until I discovered Google Maps, and I was showing tears of joy when I could explore the city and the campus independently, using Google Maps’ navigation tool to get around. I have never felt so good about myself. Thank you, Google ❤️
Good, but not brilliant....
by sloughsteve27 on 2018/01/06 18:42
This app has a lot of plus points, but it also lacks those extra little touches like a safety camera add-on or known delays throughout the route not just what you can see on screen. And, as other users have pointed out, the navigational voice-over needs to be independent of any background soundtrack that may or may not be playing. This is a common feature in true satnav apps like Co-Pilot, etc. However, this app has come a long way in the last few years, but there is still a way to go before it can be relied upon fully to replace other more competent competitors.
Crashes when switching back to the app
by Tommy putt on 2018/01/26 08:37
When leaving the app temporarily and switching back to the app, it crashes every time without fail. Bit of a pain, especially if using as a hands free set while driving! But apart from this bug it’s usually flawless. Hoping for an update to fix this issue. I’m using an iPhone X on latest iOS and latest Google Maps version as of submitting this review. *edit: was fixed and back to its perfect state, cheers all!
Vastly superior to Apple's rubbish maps
by Danny in Fulham on 2017/10/24 01:25
I absolutely dislike using Apple supplied Maps on the iPhone. It seems that all train stations are exactly the same for Apple: a London underground station is seen to be no different from another overgroundstation or a national rail station. Google Maps actually show the distinction, and also show you in which direction you are walking. Do you think Apple could learn something from this? Yes! Will they? Not a chance! The company is arrogant and impervious learning anything. So, switch to Google Maps.
Good but some major flaws
by Bru9 on 2018/07/01 16:02
Generally a good navigation app and I’ve used it consistently over the last four years. However three major areas which I’ve noted as room for improvement. FASTER / ALTERNATIVE ROUTE- the app does not take into consideration additional distance when formulating an alternative route. For instance, the App recently tried to divert me to save 8minutes on my journey time but added an additional 35 MILES. This is not acceptable or fuel efficient. The App should make any additional distance clear when offering the alternative route. COMPLICATED/ DELAYED INSTRUCTIONS - the app sometimes can give a series of instructions in a very short space of time and sometimes these are inaccurate. The App often corrects these mistakes quickly but I believe this to be dangerous as can panic a driver. INDEPENDENT VOLUME CONTROLS. I listen to my music moderately loudly on road trips however when the voice instructions come in over the music, it can be deafening.
Fantastic

I used to use Apple maps and that was good however Google maps is far better. With Google you can save hundreds of pins on places unlike one with Apple. The map is easier on the eyes with Google too. You still have the same modes with Google but you do get an additional 'terrain' mode which I always have on, it shows hills/mountains/cliffs/slopes. There is much more you can do with the map however I haven't discovered those yet!
Worst maps ever

I've been wanting to write a review for Google maps for some time now. I really feel the need to tell Google that they should stop putting out this kind of crap. They have been in this business this long for nothing. If you follow their maps blindly you end up paying tickets every single day. It wants you to turn left or right in places that you are not allowed and even go against the traffic on one ways. Lately it shows petrol stations everywhere although they do not exist. They should fire the morons running Google maps.
Little bit slow

Hi there google map. I have been using the Google map for awhile but now I can see it’s a little bit slow. I’m using iPhone 8 at the moment, on the navigation map when your vehicle moving to the left or right, the moving arrow very slowly moving left to the right it’s stays in one position for a few seconds. Just a bit of slow. Hope that the new update will make that better thanks.
Great app but the voice search section needs fixing

This app is so great but the voice search section needs to be fixed every time when Me and my whole family go out to other countries we always put the voice into a different language but then it changes back to the regular language but they really need to fix the voice search section soon before the next update
Been getting better until last update

Google maps has been improving over the years, but in the last update of you search a company by name, it use to find it for you on the map, now it just zoomed out to an over view of the country and doesn’t locate the company on the map. Even though on the shortcut where you type the search name it comes up how far away it is. Really frustrating over the last weekend that I went right back to Waze and IOS until this is sorted. Please get good again
New update unsafe
by kaysca162 on 2018/10/11 19:02
I have used this app for a good few years now and have never had a problem with it but have noticed recently that after choosing desired route and driving for a bit, notifications continuously come up saying a faster route has been found and to press no thanks if you want to continue on your current route. It’s unsafe (and illegal) to have to take your attention off the road to do this and gets quite annoying as I choose a specific route for a reason before beginning my journeys.
Good but has issues

This free app is very good if you want to go from A-B. Not very good for touring. Needs waypoints not just stop points. You can put extra stops into the route but you need to press on the screen to continue next leg when you arrive which is illegal in the uk if your driving. And again when the app finds a quicker route if you want to remain on your original route you need to press the screen to cancel. Needs audio commands to comply with uk rules. Other than that its a good satnav.
Usually I love it but since the update the GPS hasn't worked

Google maps is usually great and so helpful for navigating a new place! However, since the most recent update it has had real trouble telling where I am and today took me on a 20 min detour which I only escaped from by closing the app and reading a map the old fashioned way. It has also been giving directions late, giving directions as though I'm on a different road or just not giving any directions at all. It would be really great if this could be sorted.
