What would we do without Google Maps
by offerdoen on 2018/06/21 08:10
For one, get lost or at least spend twice as much time getting from point a to point b. Google not only gets you directly to your destination, it also uses weather, traffic congestion, road work, you name it. If it’s affecting your commute Google will take it out of the equation for you......simply amazing! That’s all I have to say.
Thank Goodness for Google Maps
by Michelle H. In C.M. on 2018/06/21 07:48
I know you might find it hard to understand, but back in “my day”...we didn’t have all this technology. So, recently, my kids (the two youngest of four) were with me as I tried to get us somewhere we’d never been. I automatically started to get a little panic attack going on, when my 12 year old reminded me that we were “all good”......as we have our trusty Google Maps. Within a minute we were on our way and heading in the right direction!
Need a update or not to be used worldwide
by Grandotote'H Boy on 2018/06/21 06:53
It is a very useful and easy to use application, but if you use it in Peru, you can probably have an accident or get a policeman to fine you; I do not remember exactly the exact amount of all the times that GOOGLE MAPS told me to drive in the wrong way, I can say that I was totally blessed not to have had an accident or to have been fined by a police officer. GOOGLE, inc., Please fix this inconvenience.
Does not Reroute
by Pchammond15 on 2018/06/21 04:43
I’ve been having issues lately with the app not rerouting if I missed my turn. It’ll just show me driving on the course that I’m driving while still showing the original route and it will not reroute. Good thing I knew where I was at or I’d have been lost since it’s not rerouting. Yes i have been using the currant version 4.50 or whatever it is. I have tried restarting my phone but that does not help the issue. App’s map still doesn’t reroute. Update: it seems to be rerouting now as of this afternoon. Thanks
Who the @$& decoded on this new feature???!
by Wishew on 2018/06/21 04:37
OK, I generally love Google maps. And I use it all the time. BUT- who on earth decided to put little preview box in the bottom left corner of the map???! In the exact spot where you put your left thumb to zoom up zoom back, or move the map!!! So of course, every time I go to adjust the map, I hit that little box and it then goes to a window with a preview, which I don’t want. Ridiculous!! If you’re going to put a preview box, put it in the top left corner. Yes, I would like to give Google maps a much higher rating. But I want to emphasize how stupid this additional new feature is.

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico Trip
by RR Pete on 2018/06/20 15:51
On a recent trip Mexico(1st time to Mexico) Google Maps was the only GPS operational app that allowed us to navigate in our rental car between Leon BJX airport to San Miguel de Allende. During this 1.5 hour plus trip we suffered no signal loss, unlike other GPS apps that I tried. Kudos to Google maps, took us from points A to B and back and never got lost. Pete V. Round Rock, Tx.
Offline?

On this device it goes offline when my other Apple phone devices continue to operate gps even though no LTE or Even 3g signal. Maybe it’s a setting.

Google’s maps are far superior to Apple, no doubt, but at what cost? Google is a bigger AntiChrist than even Facebook or Alexa when it comes to tracking, logging and selling every fiber of your daily soul to any bidder.

Frustrating!
by Phinman13 on 2018/06/19 23:12
I’m sick of Google being so far behind with respect to app features! 1.) Where are the speed limits?? Waze has it (a Google product). Apple maps has it. But Google maps...nope. 2.) Please help me understand why the layers button disappears when you start the route. You can’t change to satellite without pulling the menu up, going to the settings, scrolling down and hitting the button. Want to change the view back? You have to go through the same thing. Extremely annoying. If anything Google should be trying to outshine Apple on its own phone. They’re failing.

New Issues
by sz💟 on 2018/06/19 16:25
Up until this version, I haven’t had any issues with the app and it is better than Apple Maps. With this version, however, the sounds are not working. I have made sure my volume is all the way up and the sounds in the app are on and still nothing. It has been an inconvenience because I found this out by missing my exit and thought I might have gone too far a few exits later. Also, the times they estimate to get to places is almost double what they should be. I don’t know what happened with this version but I hope it can be fixed soon.
So far great! Could you add a feature?
by Vertified Costumer on 2018/06/19 14:32
Could you add a feature that can tell you your speed like Waze does? It would really come in handy and make google maps better!

Frustrating ETAs
by eecoxjr on 2018/06/19 12:04
This app has come a long way, but I find the ETA calculation to be frustrating because it appears to be based on the fastest vehicles in current traffic. So unless i am the absolute fastest car I am always seeing the ETA creep later and later. If I go the speed limit on a 10 hour trip i lose about 2 hours over the course of trip. (Yes I am accounting for the amount of time we are at rest stops.) Please allow options for estimates based on the speed limit, perhaps with the ability give it a plus or minus fudge factor based on the user’s driving habits. Also the ability to set a max speed for those of us that haul trailers and never exceed a certain speed would be wonderful. For example I never exceed 60mph when towing my camper, but in lower speed areas follow the speed limit. Thanks for listening.

by Dffujnbkop on 2018/06/19 11:49
Fine for getting directions when driving, but I mostly use it for looking at the actual map when I'm on my bicycle. While I have no problem, mostly, with the routes, no matter how much I blow up the image the street names stay tiny. Please fix this. I need a map I can read.
Great app, mediocre tracking
by Didimorgan on 2018/06/19 11:36
I have used this app driving back-and-forth across country, and it is served me well. But lately, the icon indicating my position has been way off target. The route indicated is correct, but it doesn’t show my actual position. The upgrade is a bit disappointing

Hello I just read your review and couldn’t help but laugh I know it was funny on your end but it was reading it kind of comical think you cause I had a long day and I could use a little smile. I hope the app is working for you because I have an iPhone and I obviously wouldn’t be looking for something else if I thought it was 100% so you’re probably not missing out anything will let you know Rada at Croatia but lives in California
Metro Transit in Minnesota
by Jesus Trejo on 2018/06/19 03:33
You guys need to be more accurate to when it comes for buses departures and when they arrive at the bus stops. I’ve been late to work because the bus never shows up and I’m always 5-10 minutes early to when the bus is scheduled and I wait that long just for the bus to never show up!? That’s ridiculous.

Buggy new version?
by emcdona22 on 2018/06/19 01:34
I’ve been using google maps for years and haven’t had any issues until the last week. It won’t update to my current location and when it does, it has the streets backwards or completely wrong. The navigation consistently thought I was on back side street routes rather then main highways and then would redirect me incorrectly. I drove from NY to DC and it was terrible, really hoping this is fixed soon.
Accuracy
by Dawnec0691 on 2018/06/19 00:18
The maps are off more times than not.
What happened to the time estimate
by taylorr624 on 2018/06/18 23:17
Suddenly I don’t see the time estimate to arrive when I search. I actually have to start navigation to know the time. Sometimes places are a further distance, but shorter time. And now it’s taking up my time to try navigation for each one to find the quickest option. App used to be perfect until this.
Not good for cities
by Penhg on 2018/06/18 22:50
This app has made me lost several times. Every time I go over or under bridges, it gets confused & reroutes a ton of times. Especially in big cities. It has no idea what it’s doing.
Almost perfect

GPS and yelps
by Dr. Coker on 2018/06/18 19:27
So I’m driving a stick shift trying g to follow the gps map and the I phone x is so slippery from it being new and coated with nanoglass or whatever it’s a battle trying to keep it still from sliding around my whole car. It’s in the backseat? No problem a brake stab and now it’s under my accelerator. U have to hold it to use the gps feature and then yelp keeps popping up wanting me to install it so that I can continue using the new google gps food review holding my phone and gps hostage while I constantly close out of the small pop ups and trying to navigate through all the twisted answered touchscreen questions while driving missing my turns and Uturning through pedestrians so I can see google gps. I can hear it but I’m not accustom to following instructions verbally.

by BiggMaik on 2018/06/18 17:22
I’ve been using Google maps and that’s the only map I use but I recently switched to android Note 8 and that’s where my google map nightmare started. The app is so slow and takes about 0.3 -0.4 miles of driving to start a trip. Right now I hate this app I used to love so much and I’m switching back to iPhone cos I never had this lagging issues with the app on iPhone. Maybe they need to look into it to find out what’s wrong with the google maps on Samsung Note8.

Worst navigation app ever!
by The Rodimus Prime on 2018/06/18 12:23
I have to use this app for work. It has no idea where things are. Many times a day it just says “you have arrived” in the middle of the street, not even giving which side of the street. It cannot do shopping centers or apartments. Entrance and exit are completely outside of it capabilities. It takes way too much distance to determine your direction in compact urban environments.
What’s going on?
by Cazimier on 2018/06/18 11:07
I’ve used Google maps for years without fail... but this morning I sit in my bedroom, not far from my home modem/router and Google Maps tells me it is “off line” with limited info... AGAIN! I’d expect this if I was out camping in WV, but in my own house or even on a backroad, but in my own house?? Don’t know if it is the iPhoneX or the app, but this didn’t start happening until I got the X (v1.2, 1.3, 1.4) If it is the app... coming guys... what’s going on?? 🤨

However it still had no idea where I was ON A HIGHLY USED ROAD in the city?? I have had to cancel my appearances at many meetings and events due to this horrible and useless app. I am extremely disappointed. Please fix this.

I would give google maps a 5 star if it would stop putting me on offline maps when I have GREAT LTE COVERAGE. I don’t know why google thinks I don’t have great coverage when I do once you get this worked out where it doesn’t send me to offline maps when I don’t need it at all I will gladly change it to a 5 star rating instead of a 1 star rating. That’s the only reason I’m giving it a 1 star rating other than that it works great

Driving through Grand Rapids MI with so many exits on both sides and the app is so slow at redirecting after you turn so I missed my exits multiple times. Almost threw the whole phone out the window. Highly recommend anything BUT google maps!
Great, but flawed
by Norway772 on 2017/12/03 21:08
So without question google maps is one of my most used apps. Very early on I decided it was far better than Apple’s maps app (maybe I should go back and try that because I haven’t used it for years). Anyway, the pluses are many, but there is one thing that drives me so insane that I rank this app a 3 instead of a 5, that one thing is extremely untimely short freeze ups. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in a situation where I need the app the run normally in order to get the info I need in time to make a correct turn and the app will pause/freeze for a few seconds. It’s almost is if it knows what’s going on and is playing a cruel trick on me. Just today I had put in my destination, had the route, and was on my way. A while later I saw an exit sign and thought that could be my exit. I pulled the app back up to check and.......... my blue GPS marker had me about 2 miles off the highway in the middle of no where just sitting still. So I wait, I’m getting closer and closer to the exit, I wait and wait, slow down a little, and wait, and there goes the exit, and finally it shows yes that was the exit. Almost broke my new iPhone X. And that exact thing has happened on multiple occasions with multiple phones. I’m going to see if any other ratings mention this.
Google Maps nearly had me miss my bus
by MaxGitt on 2017/10/20 22:22
Never have I ever seen Google maps get an address wrong. I was waiting to get on my bus at the presumed address of 435 W Peachtree St NW, Atlanta. I didn't realize this but Google had brought me to 731 W Peachtree St NE. This as I later realized was one subway stop away from where I was supposed to be. It wasn't until I asked a pedestrian that he said I was at the wrong stop. I had to sprint half a mile to make my bus. The funny thing is that I typed in the address two to three times and all 3 times Google got the address wrong. However I then typed in the address in Apple Maps and found that Apple gave me the correct address. Apple went as far as correcting the address from 435 W Peachtree St NW to 435 W Peachtree St NE. Notice the difference between NW and NE (NW doesn't exist). I then checked in Google Maps, type in the original address and "somehow" (GMaps definitely gather user data on Apple Maps because they're diabolical) Google gets it right. This makes no sense to me, Google only corrected the address after I double checked in Apple Maps. Update: I just checked again and 435 W Peachtree St NW is again the wrong address in Google Maps.
Failed me
by Dmas111527 on 2018/01/18 19:17
It took me to streets that were closed! My kids had a field trip, and the 101 fwy was closed in Santa Barbara. I already knew this, so I wanted to make sure I leave early enough to take whatever detours I had to take. Google maps said I would make it in 2.5 hours, and showed that I'd be using side streets where the fwy was closed. I checked Waze (another GPS app) and that said it would take me 3.5 hours, taking me the 5 fwy route. So I opted for Google Maps, the faster one, the so-called "trusted" GPS app, that would get me there 1 hour sooner than Waze's route. We left early, and when we reached the part where the fwy was closed, it detoured me to streets that were closed off! Tried other streets, all closed!! I then used Waze, to see if there was another way, and Waze said I would have to go all the way around, through the 5 fwy. That would take me 4 hours from where I was! We obviously didn't make it to our field trip and ended up just going to a park in Santa Barbara, then headed back home. I should have used Waze from the beginning. Google Maps fail! I've had prior issues with Google Maps before, like, it routing me in loops and circles, but never thought too much about it. It is the most used GPS app, so I thought it was the best. Nope. This time it pushed my buttons. Deleted the app. Use Waze everyone! It's real time, with real users!
Better than iOS Maps
by susie107 on 2017/11/13 12:28
I guess I didn't even realize the difference between this and the native apple map. I switched to iPhone last year and was used to pressing a map link and it opened right up in maps. Well, apple does that too...but when I needed it badly I had to come download google maps. I was stuck in a delivery parking lot of a huge hospital in an unfamiliar city that apparently had one address for the whole campus. Apple's map made me almost lose my mind- "Turn right then turn right! Go southwest then immediately go north then turn right! Turn left then turn right!" It was insanity. I finally broke down and googled what I needed which prompted me to download Google Maps...And I was immediately given correct directions and found my medical office in less than 5 minutes. Now every time I need directions I find Google Maps is the only one that's accurate. 4 stars because it turns me sideways sometimes and did have me turn right off of an exit just to make an immediate u-turn when it should have just told me to turn left from the jump. Still- it gets me there which is what I ultimately care about.
Almost perfect (almost)
by Gregory Lerner on 2018/01/23 06:30
For the vast majority of usage, this app has been flawless. The traffic is accurate, the routing is good, and the user interface is simple and easy to use. However, I have found some things to be quite annoying. For one, I have found that sometimes when I am in the far left lane on the highway, the app will think I am on the wrong side of the road causing it to constantly reroute me (this mostly happens in HOV lanes and high speed ezpass lanes). Another issue is that if I purposely choose a slower route because it is fewer miles the app will constantly tell me it found a faster route (I know there is a faster way, but I purposefully chose the longer timed route!) this is very frustrating, and on my last 2 hour drive it told me 5 times that there was a faster way and I had to take my hand off the wheel to cancel the change. Finally, my last complaint is that there aren't more alternate routes given. I’m lucky if the app gives me 3 options, whereas online you can drag the route to any road and it will find a route. Other than these issues though, the app is very well implemented.
Only sometimes shows the saved locations on my phone
by KarenD345 on 2017/12/05 16:57
I wrote a review a while back that the app no longer showed saved locations making it cumbersome to go to ‘home’ or ‘work’ since those saved locations do not show up in ‘recent searches’. I am very impressed that google responded to my review and fixed the issue. Unfortunately, the fix is not entirely 100% and the app now is rather temperamental about whether or not it shows the stored locations. It seems that if you still have a route displayed and then want to change it, the app won’t show stored locations but when you start from the map/satellite image of your current location, it will. Previous review: Used to work beautifully for the daily commute from/to work/home because of real-time traffic. Now, however, when picking a destination it only shows recent searches and not saved locations like home or work. It’s irritating and defeats the purpose of having stored locations. Yes, I do know the usual way home but the whole purpose of using google maps is to know the best route given the current traffic situation
My favorite map app
by Sarajsh on 2017/12/06 17:24
Th first time iOS maps sent me to the wrong place, way out in the country somewhere, I couldn’t believe Apple had messed up. I sent Apple a message about what was wrong and expected them to fix it. Four times in six months I reminded them that they were wrong. Then they sent me a message that they had fixed the problem. I checked, they hadn’t. What I love best about Google maps is they tell you what lane to be in for the up coming turn. I don’t like that they only give you a two mile warning about your exit on the freeway/highway. If you’re in the wrong lane at 75 mph in heavy traffic, that’s not enough warning. iOS maps gives you more miles to play with, but that’s my only complaint so far. And they do show you an arrow so you can see which way you’ll be going, but I can’t see any of it with my sunglasses on. To keep slipping them down so I can see what’s coming and how soon while driving is both a pain and not safe. I wish they’d offer more info starting with 10 miles, then 5, then 2 or something...and do it verbally so I don’t have to play with my sunglasses or look down.
So frustrating
by Ava stanley on 2018/04/03 16:16
This is a great map, it will show you where everything is, but’s it’s impossible to use on trips or custom maps. If you’re looking for directions without a custom map and for only one destination, this map is for you. If you create your own maps, need to look up multiple destinations, or are on a trip, it’s near impossible. First of all, I had my mom send me the link to our custom map. It send to my gmail, no problem. Then I’d click on the map, and it either wouldn’t load, or take me to Safari. The Safari view would show the map, but decline to let you get directions unless you signed in. Okay. I signed in. Well, it took my back to my home address, and sent me on a infinite loop, going from clicking the link in my email, getting sent to safari, logging in, and losing the map. I had to redownload the app four times before it worked. Second of all, the map legend isn’t interactive. I’m going to new york, and spent six hours working on a custom map, with a pin for every single place I wanted to go. i downloaded the app, only to find that in the map legend, you can’t click on individual icons, forcing you to leave the map legend, and click on every single icon until it pops up. Very dissapointed.
I was in love.
by Yadira1738 on 2018/01/03 01:19
I fell in love with Google Maps maybe about 7 years ago. It’s the reason I was one of the quickest pizza delivery drivers and why I’m always the one navigating family trips. I’ve been in Europe for 3 months now, and I rely desperately on my saved locations when exploring new countries. It was working beautifully until about 2 weeks ago (I assume with this new update), and when I was in London last week I was struggling to hit all the places I planned on because the map was refusing to show my saved places (my data is slow so I rely on Google Maps). I’m taking my last trip tomorrow and I don’t want to say that Google Maps is going to ruin the trip - but it definitely won’t make my trip any easier (like it used to). This is coming from a Google Maps enthusiast that annoys all her friends when she worships it (and bashes all other “Maps”). Please Google, fix this problem. I’m sure you won’t be able to for my trip tomorrow, but if my comment helps someone else, then AWESOME! And to the Google Team, I love you. Really. Thank you. May you get all the donuts you deserve.
Not the same map app it used to be and update full of bugs
by SL... on 2017/11/11 18:09
The most recent update, 4.39, has more bugs than before; the map and spoken directions are often different, the map shows the vehicle sideways or going the opposite direction you are doing and the directions indicate you should be going, and it keeps telling new directions even when you are just continuing on the same route and following its directions. Two years ago, Google Maps was the mapping app to use, it gave accurate maps (showing and predicting traffic with amazing accuracy) and gave the best, quickest routes. Now, it does not show traffic on the map along the directed route and it often does not add the additional time for expected traffic until you have been sitting in traffic for five or ten minutes. Additionally, it often has trouble identifying where you are and what direction you are going. It has reached the point where the once superior app is not significantly better than other competing map apps. One positive improvement in the last few years is being able to search along your route for things like food and gas (including most gas prices).
Google Maps is my life (I'm serious)
by Christina🐢 on 2017/09/27 12:31
I absolutely LOVE Google Maps and the Google Maps app. It works beautifully on my iPhone 6. I recently moved to New York City to attend a four year school and use the app every DAY for accurate MTA bus and transit train times (this is ESSENTIAL), to save important address, and to walk in the right direction (sometimes this can be my biggest challenge). It is intuitive, user-friendly, and helps me to feel engaged and connected with the city where I was born (but left when I was young). It's great to be back. I would donate money to Google Maps and don't get how it's free it really is a service to humanity!!! But if you can keep it free that would be great since I am a broke college student. Huge shoutout to the Maps team for their years of hard work. I think that anyone interested in exploring the world around them each day should try Maps - after a while you won't even need it to get to your favorite places with confidence (but it's ALWAYS great to have)!
It’s a very important app to have
by zanehk43 on 2017/10/02 21:31
Whether you have other maps including your iPhone or phone’s depending on the phone obviously; this is not only a fun app to have because it can show you more of the place as well as give detailed information to to even when it’s busy itself most nights and in live time. But it’s also a relevant app, leaving you the option from the beginning to see the streets and know the traffic patterns. Ask yourself what your email address is? I remember in 6th grade google was handing out only 6 invites to gmail as the only way to get one. Because they always give their best. Maybe you don’t have gmail, maybe you don’t like google but as far as storage, apps, the earth to documents, they’re and doing all they can and they haven’t failed me. This app won’t fail. Check everything. Follow the directions make sure to pay attention at worst you’ll have another app in case your default one fails at best it’s useful and very helpful.
Changes my destination
by dragonkoh on 2018/01/31 16:16
I used to have no issues with this but lately it has been changing my destination with no notification and taking me to the wrong spot. This is happening 100% of the time now and so I can’t rely on it anymore because it takes me to a random location each time. Over the past week it has caused me to drive an extra 50 miles and wasted several hours of my time. Not sure what they did to this last update but I’ll be finding an alternative now. EDIT IN RESPONSE: Typically I’d be navigating based on latitude/longtitude coordinates but it also happened when setting a destination based on address. I also found that it tended to send me back to certain locations repeated times as long as they were within a mile or so of the actual destination. I have no saved addresses so that wouldn’t have been the cause. EDIT 1/31: Yes, I’d be using Safari and a link that opened Google Maps with the coordinates prefilled. The destination would always be accurate for a few minutes but the route would silently change on me and point me to somewhere totally different, sometimes up to a mile away in a completely different direction nowhere close to the original destination.
Google Maps, I love you, but...
by peemree on 2018/01/31 22:35
By far one of my most frequently used, long-running apps. And now I live in NYC so have become obsessed with the new feature allowing us to label places as “want to go”, etc. My only complaint with Google Maps is its lag time in catching up to my location. It can sometimes take 5, 10+ minutes for the app to update my location from when previously used. My one *request* is that the app have more options to customize the pins! Example: when creating a new list, it would be helpful if there were multiple colors to choose from, rather than just having the baby blue option. This would help to distinguish between categories when looking at the map alone (rather than having to go and search through the lists). Maybe even allow for a custom-made option, such as using an emoji as a category instead of a color at all? This would be a total game changer and so improve my use of the app when searching for specific cuisines, unique features, etc.!
Best public transit mapping & predictor
by Sybil.Disobedience on 2018/01/23 12:53
I can’t say if their public transportation mapping and predictions are the best in every major city, but I can attest to the San Francisco Bay Area, which is not very easy to navigate, so let a native save you a lot of trouble. Forget all the other apps because they’re never as accurate nor as intuitive. Google has more resources to notify within seconds of schedule changes, quicker than the respective government agency where the delay may be (ie Muni accidents might not show up for 20 mins on predictions, yet Google Maps will immediately notify you and offer reroute)So no matter where you are traveling from, forget Muni app, or 511, or BART, etc., just coordinate your schedule through Google Maps. I also recommend getting a Clipper Card. Easiest way to keep track of transit passes and if you’re not sure your schedule you can just load cash which is redeemable on all transportation systems (though obviously passes are your best value).
Swipe to move in Street View needs to go.
by Headgamerz on 2017/11/05 14:06
When in street view you swipe to both rotate the camera AND swipe to move down the street. Having one input do two different things is a bad idea and will of lead to the app taking the wrong action much to my frustration. I can’t tell you the number of times I’m trying to turn the camera and suddenly I’m down the street or I’m trying to go down the street and suddenly I’m looking up in the air or down at me feet and when I try to swipe back up it moves down the street. The experience is infuriating when your trying to navigate. You need to remove the swipe to move "feature" and replace it with a different gesture (one that’s not already being used). Baring that at least give me the option to disable it as Street View is unusable in its current form without much frustration. Ignoring Street View this is an amazing app. It’s my go to for so many things. However Street View was one of the defining features of Google Maps that made it first stand out from the competition so I consider this a really big deal.
Really exceptionally dependable routing
by realdriftwood on 2018/01/04 23:04
I have been using GPS in my vehicles since 2007, so I have dealt with a number of different systems for over ten years now, and I have spent lot of money on navigation systems installed in vehicles (eight different vehicles over that period). I still use a built-in system in my present vehicle. But increasingly—and since iPhone 5 and iPhone 6—I have been depending on Google Maps to route me to specific destinations, and using my car’s BlueTooth connection system to provide continuous directions through my car’s sound system. I have found it extremely reliable, and I certainly have appreciated that it is constantly updated and free. As most newer cars can connect with their owners’ smartphones now—and as most smartphones can be charged in the car—I highly recommend this application to everyone who has to do a lot of driving!
Very inconsistent!!!
by magatha88 on 2018/01/31 19:57
I’ve been using Google Maps for a while now, utilizing the ‘location sharing’ feature more than anything. I’ve tried so hard to like the app and make it work for my family and I, but the app has let me down consistently! The location sharing feature often gives me inaccurate locations (of other family members sharing their location) or provides me with a MASSIVE range of possibilities of where family members are...too large of a range to even GUESS where their location could be. However, with all those issues, I’ve still been using the app with hope that location accuracy will improve. NOW, the location will not update! This has been an issue for almost a week now-I’ve had a location of each family member, but the location is anywhere from “2-4 hours ago”!! And the ‘refresh’ option will not ‘refresh.’ I’ve tried everything I can think of to fix the issue, thinking it could be something on my end or on family’s end, but to no avail. Please fix this app!!
Works great
by grammy from NH on 2017/10/15 14:38
My husband was an over the road trucker. The company got a contract that brought the trucks to a few out of the way farms with low and underweight bridges when this was first available. I’d get home from work, sit at the computer and drive the new routes at street level (which was better than the new street level) before he’d have to get off the highway. Saw a few lovely weddings, people waved to the google car after noticing its gizmo on the roof too. I could reroute him around ‘no trucks allowed’, 10’ bridge ahead’, ‘weight limit 5000 lbs!’ And to safe rest areas. He’s retired, so now we have fun setting, even routes we know well, and google tells us turn by turn. Our daughter shook her head and rolled her eyes...until she got lost and I told her to try it. She calmed right down as it guided her back to the road she knew. Thank you Google!
Excel...lent?
by siaka on 2017/09/26 20:02
The Google Maps app is truly a great app and it keeps getting better. My two and ultimate, well three of them, wishes and improvements are: 1: Allow us to terminate/cancel a navigation session or route by swiping down and 3D touching on the direction notification. Currently we have to open the app and go terminate it there. It would be much simpler, easier, and Safer if we could simply swipe down or 3D Touch on the notification and stop/cancel the route. 2: Allow us to pause navigation guidance. Sometimes I just want to stop and do something that I had previously not thought of. It would be nice to be able to pause the guidance rather than the app constantly reloading and trying to get me back on the route. Maybe allow that also to happen with a swipe of 3D touch on the notification banner. 3: Lastly, it would be truly amazing if the notification banner was to become reacher and more interactive. For example, in addition to the quick features proposed above, if the notification banner by being activated could show a mini animated version of the map so that the user can see from that screen their position, rather than having to go inside the app that would be amazing. That’s all I have. Thanks folks; great job as usual. Best regards,
Love the new update
by Dissatisfied user 8897 on 2017/10/21 19:33
Used to have to click 2 or 3 buttons to start a route, now simply load the address, click start and BAM you're on your way. Very convenient, especially when behind the wheel and you get sent to a different job. The one thing I would like to see improvement on is when I get my schedule emailed to me, I can copy the address from the native mail app, double click and sometimes at the bottom there will appear a "get directions to -- in google maps". Clicking on that loads maps, but it always says "can't find a way there". I can paste the address in fine, but it would be nice if this would work. A big improvement would be if a press and hold on the address would allow me to press "open in google maps" instead of the native apple maps would be great.
Add recent trips
by Ashley696977775536 on 2017/10/18 11:29
I love / hate this app. It’s great because of all its features but after a couple uses it goes bad on you. I’ll start my navigation and all of a sudden the arrow that points in the way I’m headed flips on me and shows me in either the opposite direction or that I’m going left or something unhelpful like that. This “feature” or glitch as I would call it, is SUPER ANNOYING and unhelpful because now when I have to make a left or right I have to grab my phone while I’m driving and turn it to see the actual way I’m supposed to be driving or I have to take multiple looks at the screen just to figure out which way I’m supposed to go which is annoying. I have my screen locked so it’s not like the phone is turned sideways or something that the arrow should be turning. Please make it so the app only point forward and not any other way. I love using this app when I first download it because it doesn’t do this then I end up deleting it because it ends up doing this. Thanks!
I’d Be Lost Without It 😉
by IdiotWordy on 2017/10/03 16:25
Literally be lost without it. I’m a delivery driver for a restaurant that has a very wide delivery zone, even going into very rural and dark areas. What this app provides is the most accurate directions to the home I’m trying to locate. When I’m on the street looking for an address that is in an obscure location or non-existent the arrow on the app will keep moving along with me until I’m exactly where the home is. Last Winter, I couldn’t physically see some of the houses because of the blowing snow and the fact they were 75 to 100 yards off the road or behind trees yet this app located them for me. I’ve tried other apps but none provide the accuracy this one does. Sure it has its little bugs but Google seems to fix them right away but never had any serious issues with it!!
Used to be great till Apple and Google decided to hate eachother
by :) Lina 24 on 2017/10/15 23:38
Way back in the day when Google was just trying help us find directions this was a five star app. Then Apple and Google realized they weren't milking every dollar out of each other and started the slow decline in app quality. Instead of offering multiple ways to get to your destination it now gives you the fastest. But if there is traffic it will re route automatically without permission. It also doesn't always take you the fast way. Sometimes it takes you through town for no reason because it wants to stop and shop. Doesn't show all restaurants and fast food. It used to show you the whole map when you were driving now twenty feet before you are supposed to turn it will tell you and then it slowly shows up. I hate it. Haven't heard of a better directions app so we are stuck with this crap.
Way better than iOS maps
by bashir the clown on 2018/02/28 23:51
Our school bus driver was taking us to school and used iOS maps. When we finally broke down because iOS maps was going insane by saying turn right then turn right): go north then immediately turn right): turn left then turn right): turn right then turn right): it was insanity. Then we finally broke down like I said and we had to Google what maps app is accurate. Then Google maps came The first search result on the Google website. We then downloaded Google maps and started using it. Then we found our way to school in less than five minutes. So whenever now I need directions, Google maps is always the app that I use. Update: this app got a four stars from me because it doesn’t provide coordinates information. Otherwise, Google maps is the most accurate maps app
Offline maps expire every 29 days! Why?
by iPhonePhive on 2018/02/17 21:47
I don't understand why offline maps expire at all, nevermind in 29 days! After 29 days you can no longer use the offline maps unless you update them. Do the world's roads suddenly disappear? Google seems to think it's better to leave you stranded without any offline maps than to leave you with slightly out dated offline maps. Outdated being 29 days of course. I'm pretty sure not much happens to roads in 29 days..... This is a problem because Google seems to want to update them about every 14 days or before they expire. You have to leave the app open while they update. If you close the app during an update, or are off WiFi, your offline maps won't work. Unfortunately for me this caused me to leave for a trip when offline maps had not finished updating. Rendering Google maps useless to me when I had no cell signal. For a group of intelligent people this is surely very dumb. Let us use outdated maps if we need to. Otherwise Google maps is considered unreliable.
Needs an update but overall a good app
by Kaleb Heberley on 2017/11/22 04:45
The google maps app is great but there are always times where the directions are silent where a freeway may split, and the directions aren’t clear enough as to which direction to continue. This would be helpful to avoid last minute lane changes. As an iPhone X user, this app is currently terrible on this, and just because of that, I find myself going back to Waze and Apple maps. Waze, is definitely ahead of google in regards to on road obstacles, traffic and finding those shorter routes but google maps is far more directive with lane guidance etc. Because this app is missing a much needed update to support iPhone X, this is my main reason for giving the app a 3 star rating. I wouldn’t have expected google to be so far behind such a large rollout as the iPhone X considering other companies have already provided sufficient updates, including Waze.
By far the best
by Motear19699999 on 2018/03/02 02:45
This mobile map is by far the best next to my Magellan. Apple maps blows. Apple maps uses google maps but the interface is so flawed. Google maps has never let me down. No map app is perfect, but google is by far the best all around; and all other maps uses google maps but has a different interface. People deleting the app cause it didn’t have accident or roads closed updated is silly. None of them are truly accurate on that anyway. If the app gets you close and you can’t figure out the rest of the address, then you shouldn’t be driving. I remember when I used Rand McNally paper maps and found my way around just fine. To many spoiled lazy people just like to complain. Keep up the good work google. Great app and you make it better each time.
Was great. Then suddenly it's re-directing?!
by fruitypoundcake on 2017/09/28 03:16
I've used this app for years on my old iPhone 6 and it's always been reliable when I drive. Then I traded the iPhone 6 for an iPhone 8, and this app was the first app I opened because I needed directions on how to drive home. It directed me to take an exit off the highway. Then it directed me to get BACK on the highway I had just exited (one of those highways that combines exit ramps with on-ramps then merges the ramps back onto the highway). Then it had me EXIT the highway taking an exit that was completely not the right exit, only to turn around on the overpass and get back ONTO the same highway going in the opposite direction. This was completely unnecessary and added miles to my trip. And in the middle of turning around on the overpass, it freaks out and re-calculates for no reason. My suspicion is that somehow, Google Maps was very sensitive to bumps in the road and was re-calculating at the slightest jolt to the iPhone (which was mounted securely on a phone stand). Very frustrating experience though.
Very useful and quick app.
by gustavoc1 on 2017/10/04 06:44
I love the responsiveness of this app after so many different updates available to enhance performance and experience. I would highly recommend this app for checking more transit locations than on the default Apple Maps but they are both great applications as a whole. Google Maps is overall very responsive even on devices that are considered obsolete which is truly awesome because it's always cool to know that an application can be backwards compatible even if it is slow. To conclude, Google Maps is an overall awesome app to find quick locations near you and cater your likes with suggestions at times which is smart and intuitive. The plethora of features available is amazing and I am ready for more updates!
Latest update removed traffic on by default
by Handles08 on 2017/09/19 23:54
If you use this app for traffic DO NOT UPDATE. Traffic previously was on by default, that is no longer the case, and there is no way to change it. Every time you want to check the traffic, you have to go into the layers and now turn traffic back on. Close the app, and then come back in, guess what, traffic is gone again! After about the 3rd time of, "why is there traffic, my app said there was no traffic?!" Oh... pos turned turned traffic off with the update. Rip. App is usually 5 stars. Latest update made it infuriating. Fix traffic on by default, or let us manually turn traffic on and leave it on, and you'll go back to 5 stars. Thanks for the reply. Back to 5 stars.
One Ways
by TechSolved on 2017/11/26 00:37
I've been a long term user with Google Maps and it's always incredibly accurate with traffic conditions and travel times. It is excellent in providing lane information and getting you efficiently from point A to point B. I do have one issue that is rather significant enough to lower my review from a perfect 5 stars to a 4 star rating. The app will try and direct you in the wrong direction down one way streets. Be very cautious when you are making turns that the direction the app is directing you in is a valid and legal turn. In conclusion, this is not a completely major issue so long you follow the rules of the road in addition to the app's instruction. This app is a fantastic app at getting you where you need to be. By far, I would recommend this app well beyond the other navigational apps out there.
My “Go To” App for more than Navi
by Katmamal on 2018/02/23 02:11
I use this app daily. I use it to quickly find info on businesses or restaurants in my area as well as other areas. From there I can see the phone #, hours of operation, pics, reviews, busy times or not...in real time! Many other functions I can’t recall off the top of my head. But...I usually go to Waze for my drive. I don’t know why, I just like it better with real-time traffic and accidents, also police and red light camera warnings. I do sometimes use this app for my drive if I feel Waze isn’t taking me the right way but honestly I have more errors of destination with Google. Perhaps it’s because on Waze you can contribute to the routs and shortcuts. They seem to study the routes one takes and I believe their updates are done quickly. But I still love this app for info.
Gregs Home Improvement & Maintenance Kokomo,IN
by Criag Hollingswroth on 2018/02/08 07:33
I want to thank you to Gregs Home Improvement for the very quick response to our issue. We had a water pipe Break on us. It was spraying like a fire hose. Now this was 10:00 in the evening and I couldn't get the water to shut off. My wife got on her yelp app and Gregs Home Improvement was the first one we called. One ring and they picked up and had a crew at the house in 20 minutes. With all the Equiment to start removing the water. The damage was minimal due to the fast response that Gregs showed. I was very impressed. They where there till 3:00am and at 8:00 Mr. Burthay, the owner was at my house making sure all was taken care of and tested walls and floors with a moisture prob. You just don't see that kind of care and concern much anymore.
Still Lacking a Fluid & Consistent Experience
by JJIV:) on 2017/10/23 04:24
There are three main issues that I have with this app that make it not very good to use. 1:Lack of accuracy when it comes to what direction I’m going. At least half of the time when O start moving it shows me going in the wrong direction therefore has the directions going the wrong way. This is absolutely terrible when in an area you don’t know or are in a parking lot with no street names to reference. 2:This app consistently gets the end destination wrong. Whether it be that it ends me on the street behind my destination or in a large plaza saying I’ve arrived. Also, the directions don’t take into account other entrances to plazas and will have you drive way out of the way to the plazas main entrance when one could save a few minutes by not having to wait at a red light to turn in. 3:No speed limit indicator. Please bring this feature back. Apple Maps has it, come on Google. It is a very convenient feature! The directions and routes for the most part are good. However the UI is not the best nor are the directions displayed very intuitive nor informative sometimes. If Apple Maps had better execution I’d use them all day. However your app is NOT good. Since your directions are better and that’s what I need, you eek the competition by a hair...
Needs better "next step"
by AE061231 on 2018/02/15 15:43
While I see the value in only seeing one step at a time; I frequently find myself getting lost when I have to run into the city because I don't have the exits all memorized (or I wouldn't need GPS) and Google doesn't provide me with enough information to choose from multiple lanes. I can't count how many times it says take the left two lanes or displays just an exit, and then I find I needed to be in the left most ( not either of the left lanes) to catch my split when the road forks and I wind up going the wrong direction because it was too late to get over in moving traffic once Good decided to tell me I actually need to get over. It needs to be better in major metropolitan areas to give you WAY more advanced notice somehow as you might have to shift over a mile in advance and not right before...
Not cool Google. NOT COOL!
by Hadijafaria on 2018/01/12 20:46
This app has always been an indispensable tool for me. But with the addition of live traffic (in my city) and custom labels recently, it's become an invaluable navigation app. Thank you Google for this app. I generally don't rate and review applications, but I just had to give the new Google Maps the 5 stars it so rightly deserves. UPDATE: Took away one star because navigation, location-sharing, and review-writing don’t work in my country. Another star because directions stopped working, too! I hope it’s just a bug and not another one of Google’s arbitrary policies of disabling features for certain countries. Come on Google. DON’T BE EVIL! BTW, Apple Maps is much more accurate and detailed than Google Maps now. If Google decides to disable its one saving grace, i.e. directions, altogether, I might as well use the superior Apple Maps.
Dangerous rerouting
by betsyBeans51 on 2018/01/24 17:22
When the app offers to reroute you because it's found a shorter or better route and you don't respond it automatically takes you on the most horrible back alley or pig path roads that you cannot recover from. When you are driving alone you can't watch the screen and take your hands off the wheel to tap the "no thanks" tab. The app chooses the new route and some of these roads are two lane, dark, narrow roads that no one would want to be on. You should be able to lock in your chosen route and only be rerouted if you have taken a wrong turn or exit. The rerouting should only take you to your chosen route that you have locked in. Other than this. The app was wonderful with so many helps for drivers before this bug. But now I would not feel safe to drive alone trusting Google maps to get me there. Google maps used to beat iPhone maps hands down but now I must go back to the IPhone Map app for safety sake.
Worst navigation app for driving!!!!!
by Neckrath on 2018/03/06 23:47
If your using this app for just looking up where something is. To get it’s name, phone number, or cross street. It’s great. But for use while driving.... THIS IS THE WORST APP IN THE WORLD FOR WHILE YOUR DRIVING! If you’re stuck in the downtown of a city you don’t know. You might want to use this to get the address to type into your gps for something else! Go with Tom Tom or Garmin. They’re all pretty cheap now. This app is a piece of crap! My biggest complaint is the fact it’ll reroute you WITHOUT ASKING YOU! Pay close attention! It does it. I’ve driven all over the country. I’ll set it for one route that I wanna take. It’ll start making changes without asking! My other big complaint. When you go to try to look for what exit number you’ll be taking down the road.... it won’t tell you up at the top of the screen like it use too. HEY GOOGLE! MAKE IT SO YOU CAN SEE THE EXIT YOULL BE TAKING 20 miles up ahead like you use to have it! GET RID OF THE LOOKING FOR A FAST ROUTE!
EDITED- No more traffic default?!? WHY???
by infamousree on 2017/09/19 04:10
Edit: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for bringing the default traffic layer back!!!! 5 stars again 🙌🏼 I love you. Seriously. *************** I've been a loyal Google Maps user for years. It's the best map for traffic out there, until recently. With whatever update, you guys removed the default to traffic option. We now have to toggle traffic on each time we open the app 😖 Since I'd think most people use your app FOR ACTUAL TRAFFIC when commuting or directions...this change is a huge misstep. It's one thing to take it away, then have an option to turn it on in settings...but that's not even there. Please change it back or give us an option. Thank you!
Fix traffic problem
by STL cubs fan on 2017/09/20 00:39
Update: After my poor review comprising about the traffic toggling off all the time, the developers fixed this feature and replied to my review. Google maps is better again, and I appreciate the quick developer response. I use the app every day to plan my commute and am happy that it works great again! Original Review: I agree with other reviewers. It used to be that once turned on, traffic showed up every time you started the app. Now you have to turn it on each time. Very frustrating! I may switch to a different map app if this is not fixed soon. I rely on the traffic maps to plan my commute, and toggling traffic on is difficult in the car.
Great service, and a great price!
by happytoreviewit on 2017/12/05 17:12
We were selling our 1912 farm home and needed to replace the windows in order to get a sale. D&W gave us the lowest of the 3 bids, but also we felt it is a great quality window. The installation people showed up at 10am and had replaced 11 windows, and cleaned up and they were gone by 4:30pm. Shortly after, we sold our home. We would definitely recommend them again. My husband is a contractor, but his specialty is not in windows and after coming home after a long week of work, he was relieved to have the project completed with out him having to do the work. We only wish we would have had D&W come and do that project a few years earlier so we could enjoy the windows, too.
The best
by Blake ratts😖🤒🤒🤒🤒🤒🤒👽 on 2018/03/15 06:55
This app is a very impressive app it has the 3D walk were you can walk on a road and find out what’s around you. you can also can use google maps to find stores homes and businesses. You can also use the directional gps. I really love the app because it is a great way to learn everything around you. Now there is only one way to make it even better that is if you can get to walk in a building because I like to see what is inside of a building. That would be really fun and very interesting for other people to experience what’s inside big buildings. This is a great app I love it and I never have problems with it it loads instantly and it is ten times better than maps on an iPhone.
Nearly perfect
by Former Scrabble App Lover on 2017/10/28 03:48
I completely depend on this app as a provider of health care services to homes. I enter many addresses daily, and have enjoyed the recent addition of the timeline feature as a backup to my record keeping. One innovation in the most recent update that I dislike is that when the destination is entered, the graphic focuses immediately on the area closely surrounding the address. Previously, a small schematic of the whole route popped up first, before activating the start button. If most of the route was familiar, I could leave the app off until I needed it for final turns—much better than hearing directions from my own driveway to the entrance of my neighborhood, and on all the way to the destination. Please restore the whole-route schematic at the beginning!
Transit departures widget
by mitch52d on 2018/01/09 18:42
I've been getting a ton of use out of this widget. Living in NYC, it's amazing to have bus arrival times available in real time without having to rely on the MTA or poke around inside the app. Just this past weekend, the widget picked up that a bus was 4 minutes away, when the MTA said it was 14 minutes away! My big suggestion to make this widget even better would be to have the ability 'pin' your most used transit options so it's not necessarily location based. For example, my closest subway station is 3 blocks away, so my phone doesn't list it as an option for me. If I had a subway countdown clock available in my widgets at all times, that would significantly improve my commute!
New update is good but....
by Smcclellan288 on 2017/12/01 05:12
I just got the iPhone X and the latest update from today made the map very nice from edge to edge but I can’t use the app switcher when it’s giving directions. If you’re not getting directions, you can still switch between different apps, but when directions are being displayed you can’t get out without swiping violently into the setting tab. Raise the edge of the display slightly and I’m sure things will be back to normal with this great app. I gave 5 stars because this is the best navigation program there is, I don’t like Apple Maps and I use Google Maps everyday. Make that small change to fix the issue with the iPhone X display and it will be amazing again.
Firemen Dryermen dryer vent cleaning
by Mnmt2 on 2018/01/20 15:44
Had our dryer vents cleaned by this group. These are firemen who started this company to clean out dryer vents that could cause fires. Had a great experience from the start. Brett was very friendly and professional on the phone when I called. We set an appointment and then I got a text and email to confirm. I got another reminder text the day before. Phar was the tech that came out. He too was very friendly and professional. He cleaned out the vents on our roof and then vacuumed the dryer interior. Wow! What a difference it made in drying our clothes! This is one of the few companies that cleans the roof vents. I highly recommend them to get your vents cleaned out, improve the function of your dryer and prevent any possible fires.
I get lost without it!
by ScenicNH on 2018/02/16 21:59
I rely on Google Maps whenever I get in the car to go someplace. It is save me so much time avoiding traffic congestion I cannot even calculate how much. Only one glitch I encountered I had put in multiple stops and I decided not to stop at the first stop and kept driving to the second stop but the map turned me around and brought me back to the first stop. I was going down the highway and all the sudden it just told me to take a turn I reacted in an hour later I arrived at my first stop. It would be nice if they could add a warning that you missed your first stop or a stop with a large enough button to click to override that. 5 1/2 years it’s always got me there on time.
I’m only a kid so this is what I do!!
by Cathzeadinf on 2017/11/27 14:04
I’m only a child, so I don’t really need google maps. However, I am one who loves history, exploring the earth. I zoom in entirely into a part of Ireland, and try to make my way to Japan (with zooming out to see where I am every once in a while of course.) Honestly? When I am bored, I just view random neighborhoods and places in other countries!! I even view my old houses I have lived in!! I just search up my recent address that I just moved away from, and boom!! There is my trampoline and car!! My mom uses it to navigate our new town and country, I use is for entertainment. My dad.... idek.😂😂 ANYWAYS- a useful app for useful things, to get to places, to navigate distant locations... great app.😁😁

What would we do without Google Maps
by offerdoen on 2018/06/21 08:10
For one, get lost or at least spend twice as much time getting from point a to point b. Google not only gets you directly to your destination, it also uses weather, traffic congestion, road work, you name it. If it’s affecting your commute Google will take it out of the equation for you......simply amazing! That’s all I have to say.
Thank Goodness for Google Maps
by Michelle H. In C.M. on 2018/06/21 07:48
I know you might find it hard to understand, but back in “my day”...we didn’t have all this technology. So, recently, my kids (the two youngest of four) were with me as I tried to get us somewhere we’d never been. I automatically started to get a little panic attack going on, when my 12 year old reminded me that we were “all good”......as we have our trusty Google Maps. Within a minute we were on our way and heading in the right direction!
Need a update or not to be used worldwide
by Grandotote'H Boy on 2018/06/21 06:53
It is a very useful and easy to use application, but if you use it in Peru, you can probably have an accident or get a policeman to fine you; I do not remember exactly the exact amount of all the times that GOOGLE MAPS told me to drive in the wrong way, I can say that I was totally blessed not to have had an accident or to have been fined by a police officer. GOOGLE, inc., Please fix this inconvenience.
Does not Reroute
by Pchammond15 on 2018/06/21 04:43
I’ve been having issues lately with the app not rerouting if I missed my turn. It’ll just show me driving on the course that I’m driving while still showing the original route and it will not reroute. Good thing I knew where I was at or I’d have been lost since it’s not rerouting. Yes i have been using the currant version 4.50 or whatever it is. I have tried restarting my phone but that does not help the issue. App’s map still doesn’t reroute. Update: it seems to be rerouting now as of this afternoon. Thanks
Who the @$& decoded on this new feature???!
by Wishew on 2018/06/21 04:37
OK, I generally love Google maps. And I use it all the time. BUT- who on earth decided to put little preview box in the bottom left corner of the map???! In the exact spot where you put your left thumb to zoom up zoom back, or move the map!!! So of course, every time I go to adjust the map, I hit that little box and it then goes to a window with a preview, which I don’t want. Ridiculous!! If you’re going to put a preview box, put it in the top left corner. Yes, I would like to give Google maps a much higher rating. But I want to emphasize how stupid this additional new feature is.

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico Trip
by RR Pete on 2018/06/20 15:51
On a recent trip Mexico(1st time to Mexico) Google Maps was the only GPS operational app that allowed us to navigate in our rental car between Leon BJX airport to San Miguel de Allende. During this 1.5 hour plus trip we suffered no signal loss, unlike other GPS apps that I tried. Kudos to Google maps, took us from points A to B and back and never got lost. Pete V. Round Rock, Tx.

Frustrating!
by Phinman13 on 2018/06/19 23:12
I’m sick of Google being so far behind with respect to app features! 1.) Where are the speed limits?? Waze has it (a Google product). Apple maps has it. But Google maps...nope. 2.) Please help me understand why the layers button disappears when you start the route. You can’t change to satellite without pulling the menu up, going to the settings, scrolling down and hitting the button. Want to change the view back? You have to go through the same thing. Extremely annoying. If anything Google should be trying to outshine Apple on its own phone. They’re failing.

Cannot listen to my Google map directions when playing XM radio.

New Issues
by sz💟 on 2018/06/19 16:25
Up until this version, I haven’t had any issues with the app and it is better than Apple Maps. With this version, however, the sounds are not working. I have made sure my volume is all the way up and the sounds in the app are on and still nothing. It has been an inconvenience because I found this out by missing my exit and thought I might have gone too far a few exits later. Also, the times they estimate to get to places is almost double what they should be. I don’t know what happened with this version but I hope it can be fixed soon.
So far great! Could you add a feature?
by Vertified Costumer on 2018/06/19 14:32
Could you add a feature that can tell you your speed like Waze does? It would really come in handy and make google maps better!

Frustrating ETAs
by eecoxjr on 2018/06/19 12:04
This app has come a long way, but I find the ETA calculation to be frustrating because it appears to be based on the fastest vehicles in current traffic. So unless i am the absolute fastest car I am always seeing the ETA creep later and later. If I go the speed limit on a 10 hour trip i lose about 2 hours over the course of trip. (Yes I am accounting for the amount of time we are at rest stops.) Please allow options for estimates based on the speed limit, perhaps with the ability give it a plus or minus fudge factor based on the user’s driving habits. Also the ability to set a max speed for those of us that haul trailers and never exceed a certain speed would be wonderful. For example I never exceed 60mph when towing my camper, but in lower speed areas follow the speed limit. Thanks for listening.

by Dffujnbkop on 2018/06/19 11:49
Fine for getting directions when driving, but I mostly use it for looking at the actual map when I'm on my bicycle. While I have no problem, mostly, with the routes, no matter how much I blow up the image the street names stay tiny. Please fix this. I need a map I can read.
Great app, mediocre tracking
by Didimorgan on 2018/06/19 11:36
I have used this app driving back-and-forth across country, and it is served me well. But lately, the icon indicating my position has been way off target. The route indicated is correct, but it doesn’t show my actual position. The upgrade is a bit disappointing
Still having the problem of directions not updating!

I hope the app is working for you because I have an iPhone and I obviously wouldn’t be looking for something else if I thought it was 100% so you’re probably not missing out anything will let you know Rada at Croatia but lives in California

You guys need to be more accurate to when it comes for buses departures and when they arrive at the bus stops. I’ve been late to work because the bus never shows up and I’m always 5-10 minutes early to when the bus is scheduled and I wait that long just for the bus to never show up!? That’s ridiculous.

Buggy new version?
by emcdona22 on 2018/06/19 01:34
I’ve been using google maps for years and haven’t had any issues until the last week. It won’t update to my current location and when it does, it has the streets backwards or completely wrong. The navigation consistently thought I was on back side street routes rather then main highways and then would redirect me incorrectly. I drove from NY to DC and it was terrible, really hoping this is fixed soon.

What happened to the time estimate
by taylorr624 on 2018/06/18 23:17
Suddenly I don’t see the time estimate to arrive when I search. I actually have to start navigation to know the time. Sometimes places are a further distance, but shorter time. And now it’s taking up my time to try navigation for each one to find the quickest option. App used to be perfect until this.
Not good for cities
by Penhg on 2018/06/18 22:50
This app has made me lost several times. Every time I go over or under bridges, it gets confused & reroutes a ton of times. Especially in big cities. It has no idea what it’s doing.

GPS and yelps
by Dr. Coker on 2018/06/18 19:27
So I’m driving a stick shift trying g to follow the gps map and the I phone x is so slippery from it being new and coated with nanoglass or whatever it’s a battle trying to keep it still from sliding around my whole car. It’s in the backseat? No problem a brake stab and now it’s under my accelerator. U have to hold it to use the gps feature and then yelp keeps popping up wanting me to install it so that I can continue using the new google gps food review holding my phone and gps hostage while I constantly close out of the small pop ups and trying to navigate through all the twisted answered touchscreen questions while driving missing my turns and Uturning through pedestrians so I can see google gps. I can hear it but I’m not accustom to following instructions verbally.

Better on Iphone
by BiggMaik on 2018/06/18 17:22
I’ve been using Google maps and that’s the only map I use but I recently switched to android Note 8 and that’s where my google map nightmare started. The app is so slow and takes about 0.3 -0.4 miles of driving to start a trip. Right now I hate this app I used to love so much and I’m switching back to iPhone cos I never had this lagging issues with the app on iPhone. Maybe they need to look into it to find out what’s wrong with the google maps on Samsung Note8.

Worst navigation app ever!
by The Rodimus Prime on 2018/06/18 12:23
I have to use this app for work. It has no idea where things are. Many times a day it just says “you have arrived” in the middle of the street, not even giving which side of the street. It cannot do shopping centers or apartments. Entrance and exit are completely outside of it capabilities. It takes way too much distance to determine your direction in compact urban environments.
What’s going on?
by Cazimier on 2018/06/18 11:07
I’ve used Google maps for years without fail... but this morning I sit in my bedroom, not far from my home modem/router and Google Maps tells me it is “off line” with limited info... AGAIN! I’d expect this if I was out camping in WV, but in my own house or even on a backroad, but in my own house?? Don’t know if it is the iPhoneX or the app, but this didn’t start happening until I got the X (v1.2, 1.3, 1.4) If it is the app... coming guys... what’s going on?? 🤨

I have had to cancel my appearances at many meetings and events due to this horrible and useless app. I am extremely disappointed. Please fix this.

I would give google maps a 5 star if it would stop putting me on offline maps when I have GREAT LTE COVERAGE. I don’t know why google thinks I don’t have great coverage when I do once you get this worked out where it doesn’t send me to offline maps when I don’t need it at all I will gladly change it to a 5 star rating instead of a 1 star rating. That’s the only reason I’m giving it a 1 star rating other than that it works great

Worst GPS app EVER!!
by CaSsI231 on 2018/06/17 03:13
Had to install this because my maps on my iPhone wasn’t working at the moment. Driving through Grand Rapids MI with so many exits on both sides and the app is so slow at redirecting after you turn so I missed my exits multiple times. Almost threw the whole phone out the window. Highly recommend anything BUT google maps!
Great, but flawed
by Norway772 on 2017/12/03 21:08
So without question google maps is one of my most used apps. Very early on I decided it was far better than Apple’s maps app (maybe I should go back and try that because I haven’t used it for years). Anyway, the pluses are many, but there is one thing that drives me so insane that I rank this app a 3 instead of a 5, that one thing is extremely untimely short freeze ups. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in a situation where I need the app the run normally in order to get the info I need in time to make a correct turn and the app will pause/freeze for a few seconds. It’s almost is if it knows what’s going on and is playing a cruel trick on me. Just today I had put in my destination, had the route, and was on my way. A while later I saw an exit sign and thought that could be my exit. I pulled the app back up to check and.......... my blue GPS marker had me about 2 miles off the highway in the middle of no where just sitting still. So I wait, I’m getting closer and closer to the exit, I wait and wait, slow down a little, and wait, and there goes the exit, and finally it shows yes that was the exit. Almost broke my new iPhone X. And that exact thing has happened on multiple occasions with multiple phones. I’m going to see if any other ratings mention this.
Google Maps nearly had me miss my bus
by MaxGitt on 2017/10/20 22:22
Never have I ever seen Google maps get an address wrong. I was waiting to get on my bus at the presumed address of 435 W Peachtree St NW, Atlanta. I didn't realize this but Google had brought me to 731 W Peachtree St NE. This as I later realized was one subway stop away from where I was supposed to be. It wasn't until I asked a pedestrian that he said I was at the wrong stop. I had to sprint half a mile to make my bus. The funny thing is that I typed in the address two to three times and all 3 times Google got the address wrong. However I then typed in the address in Apple Maps and found that Apple gave me the correct address. Apple went as far as correcting the address from 435 W Peachtree St NW to 435 W Peachtree St NE. Notice the difference between NW and NE (NW doesn't exist). I then checked in Google Maps, type in the original address and "somehow" (GMaps definitely gather user data on Apple Maps because they're diabolical) Google gets it right. This makes no sense to me, Google only corrected the address after I double checked in Apple Maps. Update: I just checked again and 435 W Peachtree St NW is again the wrong address in Google Maps.
Failed me
by Dmas111527 on 2018/01/18 19:17
It took me to streets that were closed! My kids had a field trip, and the 101 fwy was closed in Santa Barbara. I already knew this, so I wanted to make sure I leave early enough to take whatever detours I had to take. Google maps said I would make it in 2.5 hours, and showed that I'd be using side streets where the fwy was closed. I checked Waze (another GPS app) and that said it would take me 3.5 hours, taking me the 5 fwy route. So I opted for Google Maps, the faster one, the so-called "trusted" GPS app, that would get me there 1 hour sooner than Waze's route. We left early, and when we reached the part where the fwy was closed, it detoured me to streets that were closed off! Tried other streets, all closed!! I then used Waze, to see if there was another way, and Waze said I would have to go all the way around, through the 5 fwy. That would take me 4 hours from where I was! We obviously didn't make it to our field trip and ended up just going to a park in Santa Barbara, then headed back home. I should have used Waze from the beginning. Google Maps fail! I've had prior issues with Google Maps before, like, it routing me in loops and circles, but never thought too much about it. It is the most used GPS app, so I thought it was the best. Nope. This time it pushed my buttons. Deleted the app. Use Waze everyone! It's real time, with real users!
Better than iOS Maps
by susie107 on 2017/11/13 12:28
I guess I didn't even realize the difference between this and the native apple map. I switched to iPhone last year and was used to pressing a map link and it opened right up in maps. Well, apple does that too...but when I needed it badly I had to come download google maps. I was stuck in a delivery parking lot of a huge hospital in an unfamiliar city that apparently had one address for the whole campus. Apple's map made me almost lose my mind- "Turn right then turn right! Go southwest then immediately go north then turn right! Turn left then turn right!" It was insanity. I finally broke down and googled what I needed which prompted me to download Google Maps...And I was immediately given correct directions and found my medical office in less than 5 minutes. Now every time I need directions I find Google Maps is the only one that's accurate. 4 stars because it turns me sideways sometimes and did have me turn right off of an exit just to make an immediate u-turn when it should have just told me to turn left from the jump. Still- it gets me there which is what I ultimately care about.
Almost perfect (almost)
by Gregory Lerner on 2018/01/23 06:30
For the vast majority of usage, this app has been flawless. The traffic is accurate, the routing is good, and the user interface is simple and easy to use. However, I have found some things to be quite annoying. For one, I have found that sometimes when I am in the far left lane on the highway, the app will think I am on the wrong side of the road causing it to constantly reroute me (this mostly happens in HOV lanes and high speed ezpass lanes). Another issue is that if I purposely choose a slower route because it is fewer miles the app will constantly tell me it found a faster route (I know there is a faster way, but I purposefully chose the longer timed route!) this is very frustrating, and on my last 2 hour drive it told me 5 times that there was a faster way and I had to take my hand off the wheel to cancel the change. Finally, my last complaint is that there aren't more alternate routes given. I’m lucky if the app gives me 3 options, whereas online you can drag the route to any road and it will find a route. Other than these issues though, the app is very well implemented.
Only sometimes shows the saved locations on my phone
by KarenD345 on 2017/12/05 16:57
I wrote a review a while back that the app no longer showed saved locations making it cumbersome to go to ‘home’ or ‘work’ since those saved locations do not show up in ‘recent searches’. I am very impressed that google responded to my review and fixed the issue. Unfortunately, the fix is not entirely 100% and the app now is rather temperamental about whether or not it shows the stored locations. It seems that if you still have a route displayed and then want to change it, the app won’t show stored locations but when you start from the map/satellite image of your current location, it will. Previous review: Used to work beautifully for the daily commute from/to work/home because of real-time traffic. Now, however, when picking a destination it only shows recent searches and not saved locations like home or work. It’s irritating and defeats the purpose of having stored locations. Yes, I do know the usual way home but the whole purpose of using google maps is to know the best route given the current traffic situation
My favorite map app
by Sarajsh on 2017/12/06 17:24
Th first time iOS maps sent me to the wrong place, way out in the country somewhere, I couldn’t believe Apple had messed up. I sent Apple a message about what was wrong and expected them to fix it. Four times in six months I reminded them that they were wrong. Then they sent me a message that they had fixed the problem. I checked, they hadn’t. What I love best about Google maps is they tell you what lane to be in for the up coming turn. I don’t like that they only give you a two mile warning about your exit on the freeway/highway. If you’re in the wrong lane at 75 mph in heavy traffic, that’s not enough warning. iOS maps gives you more miles to play with, but that’s my only complaint so far. And they do show you an arrow so you can see which way you’ll be going, but I can’t see any of it with my sunglasses on. To keep slipping them down so I can see what’s coming and how soon while driving is both a pain and not safe. I wish they’d offer more info starting with 10 miles, then 5, then 2 or something...and do it verbally so I don’t have to play with my sunglasses or look down.
So frustrating
by Ava stanley on 2018/04/03 16:16
This is a great map, it will show you where everything is, but’s it’s impossible to use on trips or custom maps. If you’re looking for directions without a custom map and for only one destination, this map is for you. If you create your own maps, need to look up multiple destinations, or are on a trip, it’s near impossible. First of all, I had my mom send me the link to our custom map. It send to my gmail, no problem. Then I’d click on the map, and it either wouldn’t load, or take me to Safari. The Safari view would show the map, but decline to let you get directions unless you signed in. Okay. I signed in. Well, it took my back to my home address, and sent me on a infinite loop, going from clicking the link in my email, getting sent to safari, logging in, and losing the map. I had to redownload the app four times before it worked. Second of all, the map legend isn’t interactive. I’m going to new york, and spent six hours working on a custom map, with a pin for every single place I wanted to go. i downloaded the app, only to find that in the map legend, you can’t click on individual icons, forcing you to leave the map legend, and click on every single icon until it pops up. Very dissapointed.
I was in love.
by Yadira1738 on 2018/01/03 01:19
I fell in love with Google Maps maybe about 7 years ago. It’s the reason I was one of the quickest pizza delivery drivers and why I’m always the one navigating family trips. I’ve been in Europe for 3 months now, and I rely desperately on my saved locations when exploring new countries. It was working beautifully until about 2 weeks ago (I assume with this new update), and when I was in London last week I was struggling to hit all the places I planned on because the map was refusing to show my saved places (my data is slow so I rely on Google Maps). I’m taking my last trip tomorrow and I don’t want to say that Google Maps is going to ruin the trip - but it definitely won’t make my trip any easier (like it used to). This is coming from a Google Maps enthusiast that annoys all her friends when she worships it (and bashes all other “Maps”). Please Google, fix this problem. I’m sure you won’t be able to for my trip tomorrow, but if my comment helps someone else, then AWESOME! And to the Google Team, I love you. Really. Thank you. May you get all the donuts you deserve.

The most recent update, 4.39, has more bugs than before; the map and spoken directions are often different, the map shows the vehicle sideways or going the opposite direction you are doing and the directions indicate you should be going, and it keeps telling new directions even when you are just continuing on the same route and following its directions. Two years ago, Google Maps was the mapping app to use, it gave accurate maps (showing and predicting traffic with amazing accuracy) and gave the best, quickest routes. Now, it does not show traffic on the map along the directed route and it often does not add the additional time for expected traffic until you have been sitting in traffic for five or ten minutes. Additionally, it often has trouble identifying where you are and what direction you are going. It has reached the point where the once superior app is not significantly better than other competing map apps. One positive improvement in the last few years is being able to search along your route for things like food and gas (including most gas prices).
Google Maps is my life (I'm serious)
by Christina🐢 on 2017/09/27 12:31
I absolutely LOVE Google Maps and the Google Maps app. It works beautifully on my iPhone 6. I recently moved to New York City to attend a four year school and use the app every DAY for accurate MTA bus and transit train times (this is ESSENTIAL), to save important address, and to walk in the right direction (sometimes this can be my biggest challenge). It is intuitive, user-friendly, and helps me to feel engaged and connected with the city where I was born (but left when I was young). It's great to be back. I would donate money to Google Maps and don't get how it's free it really is a service to humanity!!! But if you can keep it free that would be great since I am a broke college student. Huge shoutout to the Maps team for their years of hard work. I think that anyone interested in exploring the world around them each day should try Maps - after a while you won't even need it to get to your favorite places with confidence (but it's ALWAYS great to have)!
It’s a very important app to have
by zanehk43 on 2017/10/02 21:31
Whether you have other maps including your iPhone or phone’s depending on the phone obviously; this is not only a fun app to have because it can show you more of the place as well as give detailed information to to even when it’s busy itself most nights and in live time. But it’s also a relevant app, leaving you the option from the beginning to see the streets and know the traffic patterns. Ask yourself what your email address is? I remember in 6th grade google was handing out only 6 invites to gmail as the only way to get one. Because they always give their best. Maybe you don’t have gmail, maybe you don’t like google but as far as storage, apps, the earth to documents, they’re and doing all they can and they haven’t failed me. This app won’t fail. Check everything. Follow the directions make sure to pay attention at worst you’ll have another app in case your default one fails at best it’s useful and very helpful.
Changes my destination
by dragonkoh on 2018/01/31 16:16
I used to have no issues with this but lately it has been changing my destination with no notification and taking me to the wrong spot. This is happening 100% of the time now and so I can’t rely on it anymore because it takes me to a random location each time. Over the past week it has caused me to drive an extra 50 miles and wasted several hours of my time. Not sure what they did to this last update but I’ll be finding an alternative now. EDIT IN RESPONSE: Typically I’d be navigating based on latitude/longtitude coordinates but it also happened when setting a destination based on address. I also found that it tended to send me back to certain locations repeated times as long as they were within a mile or so of the actual destination. I have no saved addresses so that wouldn’t have been the cause. EDIT 1/31: Yes, I’d be using Safari and a link that opened Google Maps with the coordinates prefilled. The destination would always be accurate for a few minutes but the route would silently change on me and point me to somewhere totally different, sometimes up to a mile away in a completely different direction nowhere close to the original destination.
Google Maps, I love you, but...
by peemree on 2018/01/31 22:35
By far one of my most frequently used, long-running apps. And now I live in NYC so have become obsessed with the new feature allowing us to label places as “want to go”, etc. My only complaint with Google Maps is its lag time in catching up to my location. It can sometimes take 5, 10+ minutes for the app to update my location from when previously used. My one *request* is that the app have more options to customize the pins! Example: when creating a new list, it would be helpful if there were multiple colors to choose from, rather than just having the baby blue option. This would help to distinguish between categories when looking at the map alone (rather than having to go and search through the lists). Maybe even allow for a custom-made option, such as using an emoji as a category instead of a color at all? This would be a total game changer and so improve my use of the app when searching for specific cuisines, unique features, etc.!
Best public transit mapping & predictor
by Sybil.Disobedience on 2018/01/23 12:53
I can’t say if their public transportation mapping and predictions are the best in every major city, but I can attest to the San Francisco Bay Area, which is not very easy to navigate, so let a native save you a lot of trouble. Forget all the other apps because they’re never as accurate nor as intuitive. Google has more resources to notify within seconds of schedule changes, quicker than the respective government agency where the delay may be (ie Muni accidents might not show up for 20 mins on predictions, yet Google Maps will immediately notify you and offer reroute)So no matter where you are traveling from, forget Muni app, or 511, or BART, etc., just coordinate your schedule through Google Maps. I also recommend getting a Clipper Card. Easiest way to keep track of transit passes and if you’re not sure your schedule you can just load cash which is redeemable on all transportation systems (though obviously passes are your best value).
Swipe to move in Street View needs to go.
by Headgamerz on 2017/11/05 14:06
When in street view you swipe to both rotate the camera AND swipe to move down the street. Having one input do two different things is a bad idea and will of lead to the app taking the wrong action much to my frustration. I can’t tell you the number of times I’m trying to turn the camera and suddenly I’m down the street or I’m trying to go down the street and suddenly I’m looking up in the air or down at me feet and when I try to swipe back up it moves down the street. The experience is infuriating when your trying to navigate. You need to remove the swipe to move "feature" and replace it with a different gesture (one that’s not already being used). Baring that at least give me the option to disable it as Street View is unusable in its current form without much frustration. Ignoring Street View this is an amazing app. It’s my go to for so many things. However Street View was one of the defining features of Google Maps that made it first stand out from the competition so I consider this a really big deal.
Really exceptionally dependable routing
by realdriftwood on 2018/01/04 23:04
I have been using GPS in my vehicles since 2007, so I have dealt with a number of different systems for over ten years now, and I have spent lot of money on navigation systems installed in vehicles (eight different vehicles over that period). I still use a built-in system in my present vehicle. But increasingly—and since iPhone 5 and iPhone 6—I have been depending on Google Maps to route me to specific destinations, and using my car’s BlueTooth connection system to provide continuous directions through my car’s sound system. I have found it extremely reliable, and I certainly have appreciated that it is constantly updated and free. As most newer cars can connect with their owners’ smartphones now—and as most smartphones can be charged in the car—I highly recommend this application to everyone who has to do a lot of driving!
Very inconsistent!!!
by magatha88 on 2018/01/31 19:57
I’ve been using Google Maps for a while now, utilizing the ‘location sharing’ feature more than anything. I’ve tried so hard to like the app and make it work for my family and I, but the app has let me down consistently! The location sharing feature often gives me inaccurate locations (of other family members sharing their location) or provides me with a MASSIVE range of possibilities of where family members are...too large of a range to even GUESS where their location could be. However, with all those issues, I’ve still been using the app with hope that location accuracy will improve. NOW, the location will not update! This has been an issue for almost a week now-I’ve had a location of each family member, but the location is anywhere from “2-4 hours ago”!! And the ‘refresh’ option will not ‘refresh.’ I’ve tried everything I can think of to fix the issue, thinking it could be something on my end or on family’s end, but to no avail. Please fix this app!!
Works great
by grammy from NH on 2017/10/15 14:38
My husband was an over the road trucker. The company got a contract that brought the trucks to a few out of the way farms with low and underweight bridges when this was first available. I’d get home from work, sit at the computer and drive the new routes at street level (which was better than the new street level) before he’d have to get off the highway. Saw a few lovely weddings, people waved to the google car after noticing its gizmo on the roof too. I could reroute him around ‘no trucks allowed’, 10’ bridge ahead’, ‘weight limit 5000 lbs!’ And to safe rest areas. He’s retired, so now we have fun setting, even routes we know well, and google tells us turn by turn. Our daughter shook her head and rolled her eyes...until she got lost and I told her to try it. She calmed right down as it guided her back to the road she knew. Thank you Google!
Excel...lent?
by siaka on 2017/09/26 20:02
The Google Maps app is truly a great app and it keeps getting better. My two and ultimate, well three of them, wishes and improvements are: 1: Allow us to terminate/cancel a navigation session or route by swiping down and 3D touching on the direction notification. Currently we have to open the app and go terminate it there. It would be much simpler, easier, and Safer if we could simply swipe down or 3D Touch on the notification and stop/cancel the route. 2: Allow us to pause navigation guidance. Sometimes I just want to stop and do something that I had previously not thought of. It would be nice to be able to pause the guidance rather than the app constantly reloading and trying to get me back on the route. Maybe allow that also to happen with a swipe of 3D touch on the notification banner. 3: Lastly, it would be truly amazing if the notification banner was to become reacher and more interactive. For example, in addition to the quick features proposed above, if the notification banner by being activated could show a mini animated version of the map so that the user can see from that screen their position, rather than having to go inside the app that would be amazing. That’s all I have. Thanks folks; great job as usual. Best regards,
Love the new update
by Dissatisfied user 8897 on 2017/10/21 19:33
Used to have to click 2 or 3 buttons to start a route, now simply load the address, click start and BAM you're on your way. Very convenient, especially when behind the wheel and you get sent to a different job. The one thing I would like to see improvement on is when I get my schedule emailed to me, I can copy the address from the native mail app, double click and sometimes at the bottom there will appear a "get directions to -- in google maps". Clicking on that loads maps, but it always says "can't find a way there". I can paste the address in fine, but it would be nice if this would work. A big improvement would be if a press and hold on the address would allow me to press "open in google maps" instead of the native apple maps would be great.
Add recent trips
by Ashley696977775536 on 2017/10/18 11:29
I love / hate this app. It’s great because of all its features but after a couple uses it goes bad on you. I’ll start my navigation and all of a sudden the arrow that points in the way I’m headed flips on me and shows me in either the opposite direction or that I’m going left or something unhelpful like that. This “feature” or glitch as I would call it, is SUPER ANNOYING and unhelpful because now when I have to make a left or right I have to grab my phone while I’m driving and turn it to see the actual way I’m supposed to be driving or I have to take multiple looks at the screen just to figure out which way I’m supposed to go which is annoying. I have my screen locked so it’s not like the phone is turned sideways or something that the arrow should be turning. Please make it so the app only point forward and not any other way. I love using this app when I first download it because it doesn’t do this then I end up deleting it because it ends up doing this. Thanks!
I’d Be Lost Without It 😉
by IdiotWordy on 2017/10/03 16:25
Literally be lost without it. I’m a delivery driver for a restaurant that has a very wide delivery zone, even going into very rural and dark areas. What this app provides is the most accurate directions to the home I’m trying to locate. When I’m on the street looking for an address that is in an obscure location or non-existent the arrow on the app will keep moving along with me until I’m exactly where the home is. Last Winter, I couldn’t physically see some of the houses because of the blowing snow and the fact they were 75 to 100 yards off the road or behind trees yet this app located them for me. I’ve tried other apps but none provide the accuracy this one does. Sure it has its little bugs but Google seems to fix them right away but never had any serious issues with it!!
Used to be great till Apple and Google decided to hate eachother
by :) Lina 24 on 2017/10/15 23:38
Way back in the day when Google was just trying help us find directions this was a five star app. Then Apple and Google realized they weren't milking every dollar out of each other and started the slow decline in app quality. Instead of offering multiple ways to get to your destination it now gives you the fastest. But if there is traffic it will re route automatically without permission. It also doesn't always take you the fast way. Sometimes it takes you through town for no reason because it wants to stop and shop. Doesn't show all restaurants and fast food. It used to show you the whole map when you were driving now twenty feet before you are supposed to turn it will tell you and then it slowly shows up. I hate it. Haven't heard of a better directions app so we are stuck with this crap.
Way better than iOS maps
by bashir the clown on 2018/02/28 23:51
Our school bus driver was taking us to school and used iOS maps. When we finally broke down because iOS maps was going insane by saying turn right then turn right): go north then immediately turn right): turn left then turn right): turn right then turn right): it was insanity. Then we finally broke down like I said and we had to Google what maps app is accurate. Then Google maps came The first search result on the Google website. We then downloaded Google maps and started using it. Then we found our way to school in less than five minutes. So whenever now I need directions, Google maps is always the app that I use. Update: this app got a four stars from me because it doesn’t provide coordinates information. Otherwise, Google maps is the most accurate maps app
Offline maps expire every 29 days! Why?
by iPhonePhive on 2018/02/17 21:47
I don't understand why offline maps expire at all, nevermind in 29 days! After 29 days you can no longer use the offline maps unless you update them. Do the world's roads suddenly disappear? Google seems to think it's better to leave you stranded without any offline maps than to leave you with slightly out dated offline maps. Outdated being 29 days of course. I'm pretty sure not much happens to roads in 29 days..... This is a problem because Google seems to want to update them about every 14 days or before they expire. You have to leave the app open while they update. If you close the app during an update, or are off WiFi, your offline maps won't work. Unfortunately for me this caused me to leave for a trip when offline maps had not finished updating. Rendering Google maps useless to me when I had no cell signal. For a group of intelligent people this is surely very dumb. Let us use outdated maps if we need to. Otherwise Google maps is considered unreliable.
Needs an update but overall a good app
by Kaleb Heberley on 2017/11/22 04:45
The google maps app is great but there are always times where the directions are silent where a freeway may split, and the directions aren’t clear enough as to which direction to continue. This would be helpful to avoid last minute lane changes. As an iPhone X user, this app is currently terrible on this, and just because of that, I find myself going back to Waze and Apple maps. Waze, is definitely ahead of google in regards to on road obstacles, traffic and finding those shorter routes but google maps is far more directive with lane guidance etc. Because this app is missing a much needed update to support iPhone X, this is my main reason for giving the app a 3 star rating. I wouldn’t have expected google to be so far behind such a large rollout as the iPhone X considering other companies have already provided sufficient updates, including Waze.
By far the best
by Motear19699999 on 2018/03/02 02:45
This mobile map is by far the best next to my Magellan. Apple maps blows. Apple maps uses google maps but the interface is so flawed. Google maps has never let me down. No map app is perfect, but google is by far the best all around; and all other maps uses google maps but has a different interface. People deleting the app cause it didn’t have accident or roads closed updated is silly. None of them are truly accurate on that anyway. If the app gets you close and you can’t figure out the rest of the address, then you shouldn’t be driving. I remember when I used Rand McNally paper maps and found my way around just fine. To many spoiled lazy people just like to complain. Keep up the good work google. Great app and you make it better each time.
Was great. Then suddenly it's re-directing?!
by fruitypoundcake on 2017/09/28 03:16
I've used this app for years on my old iPhone 6 and it's always been reliable when I drive. Then I traded the iPhone 6 for an iPhone 8, and this app was the first app I opened because I needed directions on how to drive home. It directed me to take an exit off the highway. Then it directed me to get BACK on the highway I had just exited (one of those highways that combines exit ramps with on-ramps then merges the ramps back onto the highway). Then it had me EXIT the highway taking an exit that was completely not the right exit, only to turn around on the overpass and get back ONTO the same highway going in the opposite direction. This was completely unnecessary and added miles to my trip. And in the middle of turning around on the overpass, it freaks out and re-calculates for no reason. My suspicion is that somehow, Google Maps was very sensitive to bumps in the road and was re-calculating at the slightest jolt to the iPhone (which was mounted securely on a phone stand). Very frustrating experience though.
Very useful and quick app.
by gustavoc1 on 2017/10/04 06:44
I love the responsiveness of this app after so many different updates available to enhance performance and experience. I would highly recommend this app for checking more transit locations than on the default Apple Maps but they are both great applications as a whole. Google Maps is overall very responsive even on devices that are considered obsolete which is truly awesome because it's always cool to know that an application can be backwards compatible even if it is slow. To conclude, Google Maps is an overall awesome app to find quick locations near you and cater your likes with suggestions at times which is smart and intuitive. The plethora of features available is amazing and I am ready for more updates!
Latest update removed traffic on by default
by Handles08 on 2017/09/19 23:54
If you use this app for traffic DO NOT UPDATE. Traffic previously was on by default, that is no longer the case, and there is no way to change it. Every time you want to check the traffic, you have to go into the layers and now turn traffic back on. Close the app, and then come back in, guess what, traffic is gone again! After about the 3rd time of, "why is there traffic, my app said there was no traffic?!" Oh... pos turned turned traffic off with the update. Rip. App is usually 5 stars. Latest update made it infuriating. Fix traffic on by default, or let us manually turn traffic on and leave it on, and you'll go back to 5 stars. Thanks for the reply. Back to 5 stars.
One Ways
by TechSolved on 2017/11/26 00:37
I've been a long term user with Google Maps and it's always incredibly accurate with traffic conditions and travel times. It is excellent in providing lane information and getting you efficiently from point A to point B. I do have one issue that is rather significant enough to lower my review from a perfect 5 stars to a 4 star rating. The app will try and direct you in the wrong direction down one way streets. Be very cautious when you are making turns that the direction the app is directing you in is a valid and legal turn. In conclusion, this is not a completely major issue so long you follow the rules of the road in addition to the app's instruction. This app is a fantastic app at getting you where you need to be. By far, I would recommend this app well beyond the other navigational apps out there.
My “Go To” App for more than Navi
by Katmamal on 2018/02/23 02:11
I use this app daily. I use it to quickly find info on businesses or restaurants in my area as well as other areas. From there I can see the phone #, hours of operation, pics, reviews, busy times or not...in real time! Many other functions I can’t recall off the top of my head. But...I usually go to Waze for my drive. I don’t know why, I just like it better with real-time traffic and accidents, also police and red light camera warnings. I do sometimes use this app for my drive if I feel Waze isn’t taking me the right way but honestly I have more errors of destination with Google. Perhaps it’s because on Waze you can contribute to the routs and shortcuts. They seem to study the routes one takes and I believe their updates are done quickly. But I still love this app for info.
Gregs Home Improvement & Maintenance Kokomo,IN
by Criag Hollingswroth on 2018/02/08 07:33
I want to thank you to Gregs Home Improvement for the very quick response to our issue. We had a water pipe Break on us. It was spraying like a fire hose. Now this was 10:00 in the evening and I couldn't get the water to shut off. My wife got on her yelp app and Gregs Home Improvement was the first one we called. One ring and they picked up and had a crew at the house in 20 minutes. With all the Equiment to start removing the water. The damage was minimal due to the fast response that Gregs showed. I was very impressed. They where there till 3:00am and at 8:00 Mr. Burthay, the owner was at my house making sure all was taken care of and tested walls and floors with a moisture prob. You just don't see that kind of care and concern much anymore.
Still Lacking a Fluid & Consistent Experience
by JJIV:) on 2017/10/23 04:24
There are three main issues that I have with this app that make it not very good to use. 1:Lack of accuracy when it comes to what direction I’m going. At least half of the time when O start moving it shows me going in the wrong direction therefore has the directions going the wrong way. This is absolutely terrible when in an area you don’t know or are in a parking lot with no street names to reference. 2:This app consistently gets the end destination wrong. Whether it be that it ends me on the street behind my destination or in a large plaza saying I’ve arrived. Also, the directions don’t take into account other entrances to plazas and will have you drive way out of the way to the plazas main entrance when one could save a few minutes by not having to wait at a red light to turn in. 3:No speed limit indicator. Please bring this feature back. Apple Maps has it, come on Google. It is a very convenient feature! The directions and routes for the most part are good. However the UI is not the best nor are the directions displayed very intuitive nor informative sometimes. If Apple Maps had better execution I’d use them all day. However your app is NOT good. Since your directions are better and that’s what I need, you eek the competition by a hair...
Needs better "next step"
by AE061231 on 2018/02/15 15:43
While I see the value in only seeing one step at a time; I frequently find myself getting lost when I have to run into the city because I don't have the exits all memorized (or I wouldn't need GPS) and Google doesn't provide me with enough information to choose from multiple lanes. I can't count how many times it says take the left two lanes or displays just an exit, and then I find I needed to be in the left most ( not either of the left lanes) to catch my split when the road forks and I wind up going the wrong direction because it was too late to get over in moving traffic once Good decided to tell me I actually need to get over. It needs to be better in major metropolitan areas to give you WAY more advanced notice somehow as you might have to shift over a mile in advance and not right before...
Not cool Google. NOT COOL!
by Hadijafaria on 2018/01/12 20:46
This app has always been an indispensable tool for me. But with the addition of live traffic (in my city) and custom labels recently, it's become an invaluable navigation app. Thank you Google for this app. I generally don't rate and review applications, but I just had to give the new Google Maps the 5 stars it so rightly deserves. UPDATE: Took away one star because navigation, location-sharing, and review-writing don’t work in my country. Another star because directions stopped working, too! I hope it’s just a bug and not another one of Google’s arbitrary policies of disabling features for certain countries. Come on Google. DON’T BE EVIL! BTW, Apple Maps is much more accurate and detailed than Google Maps now. If Google decides to disable its one saving grace, i.e. directions, altogether, I might as well use the superior Apple Maps.
Dangerous rerouting
by betsyBeans51 on 2018/01/24 17:22
When the app offers to reroute you because it's found a shorter or better route and you don't respond it automatically takes you on the most horrible back alley or pig path roads that you cannot recover from. When you are driving alone you can't watch the screen and take your hands off the wheel to tap the "no thanks" tab. The app chooses the new route and some of these roads are two lane, dark, narrow roads that no one would want to be on. You should be able to lock in your chosen route and only be rerouted if you have taken a wrong turn or exit. The rerouting should only take you to your chosen route that you have locked in. Other than this. The app was wonderful with so many helps for drivers before this bug. But now I would not feel safe to drive alone trusting Google maps to get me there. Google maps used to beat iPhone maps hands down but now I must go back to the IPhone Map app for safety sake.
Worst navigation app for driving!!!!!
by Neckrath on 2018/03/06 23:47
If your using this app for just looking up where something is. To get it’s name, phone number, or cross street. It’s great. But for use while driving.... THIS IS THE WORST APP IN THE WORLD FOR WHILE YOUR DRIVING! If you’re stuck in the downtown of a city you don’t know. You might want to use this to get the address to type into your gps for something else! Go with Tom Tom or Garmin. They’re all pretty cheap now. This app is a piece of crap! My biggest complaint is the fact it’ll reroute you WITHOUT ASKING YOU! Pay close attention! It does it. I’ve driven all over the country. I’ll set it for one route that I wanna take. It’ll start making changes without asking! My other big complaint. When you go to try to look for what exit number you’ll be taking down the road.... it won’t tell you up at the top of the screen like it use too. HEY GOOGLE! MAKE IT SO YOU CAN SEE THE EXIT YOULL BE TAKING 20 miles up ahead like you use to have it! GET RID OF THE LOOKING FOR A FAST ROUTE!
EDITED- No more traffic default?!? WHY???
by infamousree on 2017/09/19 04:10
Edit: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for bringing the default traffic layer back!!!! 5 stars again 🙌🏼 I love you. Seriously. *************** I've been a loyal Google Maps user for years. It's the best map for traffic out there, until recently. With whatever update, you guys removed the default to traffic option. We now have to toggle traffic on each time we open the app 😖 Since I'd think most people use your app FOR ACTUAL TRAFFIC when commuting or directions...this change is a huge misstep. It's one thing to take it away, then have an option to turn it on in settings...but that's not even there. Please change it back or give us an option. Thank you!
Fix traffic problem
by STL cubs fan on 2017/09/20 00:39
Update: After my poor review comprising about the traffic toggling off all the time, the developers fixed this feature and replied to my review. Google maps is better again, and I appreciate the quick developer response. I use the app every day to plan my commute and am happy that it works great again! Original Review: I agree with other reviewers. It used to be that once turned on, traffic showed up every time you started the app. Now you have to turn it on each time. Very frustrating! I may switch to a different map app if this is not fixed soon. I rely on the traffic maps to plan my commute, and toggling traffic on is difficult in the car.
Great service, and a great price!
by happytoreviewit on 2017/12/05 17:12
We were selling our 1912 farm home and needed to replace the windows in order to get a sale. D&W gave us the lowest of the 3 bids, but also we felt it is a great quality window. The installation people showed up at 10am and had replaced 11 windows, and cleaned up and they were gone by 4:30pm. Shortly after, we sold our home. We would definitely recommend them again. My husband is a contractor, but his specialty is not in windows and after coming home after a long week of work, he was relieved to have the project completed with out him having to do the work. We only wish we would have had D&W come and do that project a few years earlier so we could enjoy the windows, too.
The best
by Blake ratts😖🤒🤒🤒🤒🤒🤒👽 on 2018/03/15 06:55
This app is a very impressive app it has the 3D walk were you can walk on a road and find out what’s around you. you can also can use google maps to find stores homes and businesses. You can also use the directional gps. I really love the app because it is a great way to learn everything around you. Now there is only one way to make it even better that is if you can get to walk in a building because I like to see what is inside of a building. That would be really fun and very interesting for other people to experience what’s inside big buildings. This is a great app I love it and I never have problems with it it loads instantly and it is ten times better than maps on an iPhone.
Nearly perfect

I completely depend on this app as a provider of health care services to homes. I enter many addresses daily, and have enjoyed the recent addition of the timeline feature as a backup to my record keeping. One innovation in the most recent update that I dislike is that when the destination is entered, the graphic focuses immediately on the area closely surrounding the address. Previously, a small schematic of the whole route popped up first, before activating the start button. If most of the route was familiar, I could leave the app off until I needed it for final turns—much better than hearing directions from my own driveway to the entrance of my neighborhood, and on all the way to the destination. Please restore the whole-route schematic at the beginning!
Transit departures widget

I've been getting a ton of use out of this widget. Living in NYC, it's amazing to have bus arrival times available in real time without having to rely on the MTA or poke around inside the app. Just this past weekend, the widget picked up that a bus was 4 minutes away, when the MTA said it was 14 minutes away! My big suggestion to make this widget even better would be to have the ability 'pin' your most used transit options so it's not necessarily location based. For example, my closest subway station is 3 blocks away, so my phone doesn't list it as an option for me. If I had a subway countdown clock available in my widgets at all times, that would significantly improve my commute!
New update is good but....

I just got the iPhone X and the latest update from today made the map very nice from edge to edge but I can’t use the app switcher when it’s giving directions. If you’re not getting directions, you can still switch between different apps, but when directions are being displayed you can’t get out without swiping violently into the setting tab. Raise the edge of the display slightly and I’m sure things will be back to normal with this great app. I gave 5 stars because this is the best navigation program there is, I don’t like Apple Maps and I use Google Maps everyday. Make that small change to fix the issue with the iPhone X display and it will be amazing again.
Firemen Dryermen dryer vent cleaning
by Mnmt2 on 2018/01/20 15:44
Had our dryer vents cleaned by this group. These are firemen who started this company to clean out dryer vents that could cause fires. Had a great experience from the start. Brett was very friendly and professional on the phone when I called. We set an appointment and then I got a text and email to confirm. I got another reminder text the day before. Phar was the tech that came out. He too was very friendly and professional. He cleaned out the vents on our roof and then vacuumed the dryer interior. Wow! What a difference it made in drying our clothes! This is one of the few companies that cleans the roof vents. I highly recommend them to get your vents cleaned out, improve the function of your dryer and prevent any possible fires.
I get lost without it!

I rely on Google Maps whenever I get in the car to go someplace. It is save me so much time avoiding traffic congestion I cannot even calculate how much. Only one glitch I encountered I had put in multiple stops and I decided not to stop at the first stop and kept driving to the second stop but the map turned me around and brought me back to the first stop. I was going down the highway and all the sudden it just told me to take a turn I reacted in an hour later I arrived at my first stop. It would be nice if they could add a warning that you missed your first stop or a stop with a large enough button to click to override that. 5 1/2 years it’s always got me there on time.
I’m only a kid so this is what I do!!

I’m only a child, so I don’t really need google maps. However, I am one who loves history, exploring the earth. I zoom in entirely into a part of Ireland, and try to make my way to Japan (with zooming out to see where I am every once in a while of course.) Honestly? When I am bored, I just view random neighborhoods and places in other countries!! I even view my old houses I have lived in!! I just search up my recent address that I just moved away from, and boom!! There is my trampoline and car!! My mom uses it to navigate our new town and country, I use is for entertainment. My dad.... idek.😂😂 ANYWAYS- a useful app for useful things, to get to places, to navigate distant locations... great app.😁😁
