This app crashes every time I use it lately :(
by KLizbeth on 2018/01/17 17:37
Why is it that the crash hasn’t been fixed? One of my other apps crashed on me yesterday and right away a message popped up that they were on it and if I’d like to send a request for repair. It is soooo frustrating having to re input the address and start the process all over again.
Close
by Villegas Canas on 2018/01/17 16:41
I have a iPhone and decided to try this instead of my regular apple gps. Well I used it twice and both time it brings me close the the location but not where I need to be. The first time I needed to go to a shopping center and it brought me to the street behind it, so I had to reroute myself to the front. The second time it brought me to a location across a field from where I was needing to be. It will get you close but you will have to find the last step yourself.

Google Maps is nearly perfect, Lacks Speed and Speed Limit
by waynepruski on 2018/01/17 14:05
Google Maps is nearly perfect. Voice commands just “work” and 99.9% of the time it nails the correct destination and best route(s). If Google wanted to go for perfection, add current Speed of the vehicle and posted Speed Limit. This would make us drivers more aware to make an informed decision to decrease speed - it would SAVE LIVES. I know it’s possible because other nav apps have this feature. And I know Google wouldn’t be so evil as to withhold this feature because it might infringe on State’s revenue generating schemes (which count on people being unaware of speed and take action, to heck with safety, right? It’s about money!)
Force Close
by ....and I'll form the head on 2018/01/17 13:48
This app used to be great. Now it just force closes. My ios is updated as well as the app. Takes me back to my early android days.
Used to be great
by Peggy.stiller on 2018/01/17 13:48
I used to rely on this app all the time. It always got me wherever I needed to go on time and took me around accidents and other issues. Lately, though, I’ve stopped using it because it directs me the same way every day, even if there are accidents and/or faster routes. It wants me to get off at the busiest exit in my city when there are two other less busy exits that will get me there faster every time. It stopped giving me shortcuts and now I take my chances going a quicker way I know and hoping there are no issues. It’s really a shame that I can’t count on this app anymore...not sure what changed for them.
please fix it

A good app but why can’t I rename custom locations?
by Leroy_Dragonchild on 2018/01/17 07:21
So I travel a lot and while this app is nice to use some things truly frustrate me. For example: 1. Location is sometimes way off or will freeze/lag for no reason (I have full signal, good battery and no other apps open). 2. I can’t name custom locations, only label them which doesn’t always work. I’ll go into my favourites and all my locations/places are named as longitude and latitude. And I cannot rename them at all, only assign them labels which don’t show up when viewing favourites etc. Which means I have to tap each location to figure out why I saved it.

by Bredmon Tazmania on 2018/01/17 06:26
Google maps always gives you the short cut to the directions we all need to go. I’ll say it’s the second best app for directions.
The best map app

Won't save my Home location, and more
by BridgeLover on 2018/01/17 04:36
I keep setting my home location, but the app keeps erasing it. Additionally it keeps reverting the "Save recent searches on this device" to ON, after I turn it OFF!!! I suspect this is maybe because I don't use the app connected to my Google account, even though I do have my Google account connected in other Google apps (Gmail, Hangouts, Drive, Docs, etc). However, I don't want Google Maps connected to my account. And it annoyingly keeps suggesting I that I do connect it! But I should be able to just use the app without signing in. It's very frustrating.

Troubles with the new update
by Ravioli123 on 2018/01/17 00:00
I was forced to update my phone and am sadly regretting it. It used to be so simple to immediately switch to seeing the written directions, and it now takes more steps and is harder to accomplish while driving. It also is not updating the directions as often when I’m driving- I noticed it told me on my phone an exit was four miles away with it was a mile away at that time. These didn’t seem to be problems with my older version. I’m sure there are benefits to the update, but I’m not seeing it

Great navigation, not as smooth as it could be
by Kyle_with_clothes on 2018/01/16 21:46
Love the navigation. The app is generally quick and responsive. But if I want to check the directions quickly with one hand, going back is an issue having to reach the tiny back arrow in the upper left. You really should utilize the back swipe (left to right), or the pull down dismiss motion, to go back from this screen. The other issue I have is that it sometimes hangs for a couple minutes if I’m walking out of a place with WiFi and trying to pull up quick navigation as I get in my car. Like it wants to keep using the WiFi, and as it tries to transition, it just throws up for a while.

Everything Needs Improvement
by EricRHarrington on 2018/01/16 20:32
Google Maps allows locals to be ‘guides’ in that they can help tourists and even locals discover and have improved-visits and experiences by allowing ‘guides’ leave reviews, locations, hours, both the positives and negatives of everything from restaurants to fast-food to outlet malls to museums and even health/medical clinics and hospitals. Its fantastic and I recommend this for every tourist, from John Doe to Jeff Bezos. No one is too well-informed: we all co-exist and we can all improve our amazing areas we live and vacation and even perhaps drive through on the way to a more-distant location.

Incorrectly tracking
by VeloMat on 2018/01/16 17:18
Lately I have found Google Maps to incorrectly track me on a road. This is happening mainly around freeway exits and complex junctions. Use to be a lot better. As a result, there is more confusion during these critical areas. I will be traveling along and expect to take one of three close exits. Google Maps will mistakingly track me as taking the first exit, which I didn’t, and therefore provide directions irrelevant to my current path when I need confirmation of which exit I need to take. If this isn’t resolved soon, I will likely explore my other options.

This used to be an amazing application for mapping directions. Far superior than apples. Lately, it has been crashing every single time I use it and I have to re-enter the address and do it again. Then if I switch to another app and come back to Google maps it automatically crashes again. I then start over.Google please fix this app
Minor features
by Wgmsarkis on 2018/01/16 13:45

Amazing App, Lacks a feature...
by Calebffhchjchkg on 2018/01/16 03:32
I have forever loved google maps and how updated the maps are in big cities. However, there is a change I would like to see. In Bing Maps, it allows you to drag your route to any alternate highway/road you come up with when setting a destination. This feature can be accomplished by making so that you can press, hold, and drag the blue route to any highway. Also, I have sent repeatedly time and time again feedback about how satellite imagery has not been upgraded in my home area of Quincy, IL since 2009.

Nav voice has left the building.
by Brian You on 2018/01/16 03:02
I can't hear the navigation voice no matter what I do, despite its turned on and all the settings are correct. The maps and the turning are accurate, but for some reason I only hear beeps instead of a voice instructing me... Goes to show how much I rely on the voice. I thought maybe it was my phone, so I tossed my 6 Plus and got an 8 Plus and still the result was the same. Was this an update I maybe wasn't aware of some months ago? If not, please assist. Update: I've tried this and nothing has worked. Is there anything I can do? Have you encountered this situation before?

by Shawnblog on 2018/01/15 19:05
Although I have been mostly impressed over the years using this, more and more lately I’m getting bad directions as per the title of my review. It’s getting to the point where it’s ridiculous and could cause me some trouble. It has certainly taken me to a location where I was directed to make an illegal turn and turning around to go the right way added considerable time to my trip.

Version 4.43 flawed, please fix
by Tyleem111 on 2018/01/15 16:41
It keeps rerouting and the GPS position bounces around, usually when I get close to the destination. It also gives wild directions that go completely out of the way. Example 37min eta when it should be 7mim. I loved the previous versions, so with these fixed I will change it to 5 starts.
Like it, but I can think of ways it could be better.
by Bibliomom on 2018/01/15 15:22
This app is your typical navigation app, but it sometimes gets confused when you go over overpasses or detour for gas/food. If the app could identify detours, guess the reason, and navigate to a gas station/restaurant/coffee shop, it would be amazing. Even more so if it could route you to places you liked. Also, if it could guess when your car was running low and intentionally deviate so you could refuel, it would totally be a 5 star app. However, this works and it works well.
Only IPhone 5s?
by plexplex on 2018/01/15 14:52
The navigation system after a while turns the map sideways, and if I stop and restart the map it stays sideways and I can’t determine if I should go left or right.

Anyway, the first incident sent me in a circle for about 15 minutes and then had May a block off the address. The second incident it was sending me down a one way street..... please get it together

I always used google maps over waze because waze had this frustrating lag after a turn where google maps was turning with you real time. Now they basically took waxes core and put google maps interface on it. Time to give Apple maps a chance.

I have used and loved Google maps for ever! However, lately the app has been playing an ugly game on me.

Lately (the last few months) when I try to switch out and back in, the app crashes and i have to re-enter my destination etc.

Google data collection
by gmaps reviewer on 2018/01/15 04:35
Constant bias to be routed to freeway even though streets would be faster. Many streets show red traffic but I ignore google and find that the streets have no traffic. Also, it seems like google routes me through neighborhoods just to collect more data. For instance it will have me take a round less and often more indirect route only to bring me back to same empty traffic free street I was previously on.

For the past couple weeks, google maps has been failing to correctly locate and navigate me while I’m driving.

I reinstalled in once, but now I’m going to switch to a more reliable mapping application.

I like this app, but the voice guide is not working
by Henine. on 2018/01/14 22:49
I used this app extensively while I was driving. However, the voice guide will always disappear whenever I plug the car USB charger to my phone, as the phone battery dies very fast while navigating, so I often need to charge the phone while driving, but can't have the voice guide at the same time.

I used the app for years with no problem but in the past 3 months it will not update to the next direction. It doesn’t detect when I left the parking lot or got off at an exit and does not always get the location right. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app and it still doesn’t work.

Has been
by /\/\/\ ALP /\/\/\ on 2018/01/14 16:18
Google maps used to be the best. It sometimes tries to do smt else than what I want it to do. Eg. Instead of showing results on the small map area I search in, it zooms out to show “more” results and “omit the results in the area searched”. It occasionally sent me to wrong locations. A Caltrain station was shown in the mountains, luckily I knew it could not be there and turned around to park and figure it out myself on Safari. UI is small and hard to read when driving, Apple maps is bigger and easier to use. It has annoying notifications constantly telling me to keep the app open so it can “update” offline maps. Very. Annoying. Who writes this software to nag the user every day? In the past, Google tricked me to update the app, only to delete the already installed app and then refuse to reinstall the app, telling me to update my iOS to the latest version, which my phone’s hardware would not be able to handle. Dumb Google’s dumb software engineer could not do any better? How come they don’t check the iOS version before attempting to update? This lead to my initiation to Apple Maps and I never went back to Google Maps. Google reviews (for shops etc) is almost as bad as Apple maps’ Yelp, which heavily censors ratings and is very misleading. Google reviews sometimes removes ratings as well, but is not as manipulative as Yelp. Google maps has offline maps, handy when traveling, esp. internationally. Apple maps does not have that (yet). Overall, Google maps is overtaken by Apple maps, which has equally good info and directions, but better UI. I use Apple maps for everyday errands, but keep google maps as a back up and for restaurant reviews and offline maps.

Unending Creativity
by F. Parsay on 2018/01/14 01:44
We are in a world with interconnected conditions and interdependent living beings and we can see that Google Maps is always finding and communicating the realities that are present and also constantly moving at and changing for the future. We witness their powerful transforming practices which brings with it important innovations and insights. Their experiential learning and gathering data from the real situations is a great help in finding successful navigation solutions. What a joy to be a witness and to benefit from their unending creativity and their efforts towards achieving their goals and creating a better life for all. Farinaz Parsay
Totally regret updating
by Dizkoteck on 2018/01/14 01:17
What was once the dominant app for directions is now a death trap waiting to happen. I loved google maps but the last update changed it all. When you put in directions and zoom out it now automatically zooms back in. Why? I want to have an visual of how far the destination is. And can you please stop giving alternate directions while I'm driving and have chosen a route. There are two highlighted routes! Do I exit here or the next one? And for god sakes drop automatic direction change in the middle of the route. If you're telling me go straight I'll go straight but don't tell me at the last second to from the left lane to right exit 300 ft away. The previous version had one of this.

FORGETS Avoid Toll charges setting!!
by moin495 on 2018/01/13 21:30
Horrible app. It no longer remembers the setting to Avoid Toll charges option! Even if I click on the "Remember Settings" option. It wipes out the Avoid Toll charges option. Must be a business strategy to force you to pay toll charges!!
No sound👂 in alert.
by Bangheart on 2018/01/13 21:25
It’s nice that now the app offers to remind you when it’s time to leave your house 🏡 so you don’t miss your Bus 🚌 and when it’s time to change from one bus 🚎 to another in a route but none of the reminders offered have sound to them and People can’t constantly have their eyes 👀 on there phone 📱 if they need to have their eyes 👀 on the road so they can see when to ring the bell 🛎 in the Bus 🚎 to be able to get off without passing there stop and if the phone is inside our pocket you’ll never know that you got a message from google maps to leave from your house 🏡 because there’s no sound 👂
Getting worse at basic functionality
by Stuz5000 on 2018/01/13 18:31
Seems that searching for things a hair salon on SOMA misses VERY many nearest and most highly user-rated places. Presumably in favor of paid ads for the places it shows across town. Seems to be trend.
Used to be good
by Jay_lynne on 2018/01/13 18:30
The navigation settings won’t work anymore. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app so many times and did many steps to try to fix it but whenever I’m using the app it will not follow my car and I end up missing turns. It’s delaying updates on where I am.

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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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,
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.
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.
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.
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...
Whats happening over there.
by Buckeye chris on 2017/11/22 14:25
First off why do you keep changing the out around every update you move stuff around and change the settings? Now the default when starting the app: traffic is on and I get a pop-up that blocks half of the map showing information that I don’t need. Today I’m trying to search for car dealerships around my city. Instead of showing me all around the city or the specific area I’m looking for it’s only showing what’s around my current location. This is quite annoying because I’m trying to find dealerships on the other side of town near my work. Also I must admit the street view is messed up. The blue lines you slide your finger across make it extremely difficult to spin around and look at a location. Every time I try to turn or zoom in it ends up throwing me all the way down the street. One other thing I have an issue with is the traffic. It keeps randomly switching from red to green. Sometimes it will switch back and forth as I zoom in and zoom out it. I’ve been using this app for almost 10 years and up until the last year or two it was an amazing the best. Please keep it simple that’s what we like. Adding new features is great but don’t cloud the basic app and use of the map.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.

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.
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!
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.😁😁
Thanks for fixing Traffic Update
by The3rdshooter on 2017/09/20 15:35
Thanks for listening to complaints about Traffic option always defaulted to turned off. Reassuring to know that you actually try to fix these complaints. Good job. Also, thank you very much for allowing us to delete search history more than one at a time. Yet, still not 100% 5 Star happy about how the Center-On button Automatically zooms in so much on your location. Especially after you got the map scaled to the size that you like to view traffic info and alternate routes, then refresh your location it automatically zooms in too much again, having to reset the desire map scale again and again.
User friendly
by Rembranto on 2017/10/03 12:53
I wish there was a setting mode where I could set Maps to drive only, I use the app a lot. Everyday multiple times a day and at times it switches over to walk mode which I have NEVER used, so that is an annoyance for me. I also detest the notification that pops up and verbally alerts me to my eta. I don't need to hear what is clearly visible on the screen for me to read. Please give the option of a different voice? A British one would be nice. How about this: one that says the Latin names of streets with the right pronunciation? After the last iPhone update it has prompted me to use Apple maps which is problematic for me. How do I switch that off since I prefer Google maps? Help
Great navigation... Only if you have unlimited data
by LLCoolJonny on 2017/10/18 21:26
Minus 2 stars because the app forgets the original route when I'm going out of wifi area without data service, and GMaps attempts to reroute. This may change an originally toll-free route to a toll one - all without notice! Also, when out on the road and cellular data is off, and then I turn data on, the app takes at least 30 seconds before reconnecting/rerouting. This issue is very problematic when I'm Turing data briefly on to search for coffee/gas-stations along the route. Another issue is that the app consumes too much data - probably from downloading pictures associated with Point Of Interest's. My monthly data usage usually goes up to 70 MB's, and 100MB's for each roadtrips. It would be great if there's an option to reduce data usage for pictures.
Latest Update Is Not Good
by Cameron Madsen on 2017/12/07 23:17
The latest update has made the app not very friendly with the iPhoneX. When searching for directions it allows you to swipe to get back to the home screen or multitask to another app. However, when it is navigating this function is completely unusable. To get back to the home screen you have to swipe down from the top, move to another app, and then swipe up to go home. If it was designed that way to prevent using your phone while navigating then it was overthought and a bit too big brotherish. I certainly don’t need Google deciding how I should use my phone while driving. Also, I often use Maps as a passenger to help a driver navigate. I also use it frequently when walking in larger cities I travel to. I am hoping that this issue gets fixed soon so I don’t have to look for an alternative Maps program.
Inconsistent
by Rhzyak on 2018/01/04 20:53
The functionality may be there, but it's either hard, or redundant, or straight up confusing to use at times █ "Satelite and Traffic" shows as a legacy option in the sidebar, only pointing to the N E W location when tapped, It has been this way for almost a year, to my knowledge - Yet, "Explore" is redundant, but is fully functional both on the sidebar or the map itself █ "Explore food and drinks" is incomplete - usually, when trying to use it is because I want to go somewhere RIGHT NOW, so showing a "closed" and "closing soon" advices on the cards would be incredibly useful, rather than having to open each and every location █ the top-left "back" button is inconsistent, at least in "Settings", sometimes it may bring me back to the map, sometimes only one step back
Not good for San Diego
by Todos Santos on 2017/10/15 20:39
Would be a good app as it has all the bells and whistles, but oh my does it pick routes that are often longer in distance and more time consuming. I recently became a Lyft driver, clocking in 50 hours a week, relying on this app for navigation to pick up passengers all around San Diego. I'll give the app that it chooses a good route about 70% of the time, but also often chooses a route that makes me drive minutes out of the way to get back to the same street I was already on. When it comes to my local town, oh boy does it choose ridiculous routes! Especially in residential areas, it will make me go on a wild goose chase while I could have easily taken one street all the way to my destination with less miles and less time. Honestly, the iPhone navigation app was way better, but as a Lyft driver we have to use this or Waze(even worse).
Google maps and google contacts
by rkgdroid on 2017/11/02 04:56
I have been utterly frustrated with maps not being able to easily access my contacts on the phone, when those contacts themselves originate and sync to the same exact google/gmail contact account used to log into google maps. For example, I’ll type in the name of “John Smith” from my contacts, and I’ll get all the John Smith’s that are a data point on google maps and maybe if I’m lucky, it’ll find an address linked from my contacts. Forget it, if you have two address for a friend. Without the exact search terms, it’ll never show up, and you’ll get “poor connection” problems. Yes, weird. I can’t believe I’m the only one complaining. I can’t believe I’ve suffered this long. I can’t believe I’m having to detail this. It just seems too obvious for this problem to have been neglected sooo long.
An essential app for any phone.
by Jedi Jerms on 2017/09/30 01:20
Google’s Maps navigation app is by far the best navigational app there is as of now. With Waze coming in at a close second and Apple’s own navigation app not too far behind. It is the most robust, easy to use, and trustworthy navigation app in my opinion. I have used all three and even with the newest additions of iOS 11, I still have see my timing to some destinations in Apple Maps as incorrect. That raises an eyebrow. Waze is excellent as well, but Google Maps has information that is almost always spot on. Google has truly made something here that people will use for generations to come and it will only evolve into something better.
Delicious, comfortable, good food!
by Ang9942 on 2017/11/16 19:51
A friend recommended Bleu Root to a big group of us going to lunch together. While I like interesting flavors and am a little adventurous, I looked at the menu in advance and it looked a little too gourmet for me, like maybe not enough mainstream options. But I’m glad we went, because it was delicious! Although they had several soups from which to choose, their beef barley soup was there soup of the day. I’m not particularly a soup person, but I ordered it anyway, and it was delicious! Then I ordered a mushroom asiago flat bread that was also delicious. I would go back, and I would recommend. It seemed everyone in the group loved their food! And the service was very pleasant and helpful.
Automatic rerouting needs to stop
by HindrancesSUCK on 2017/10/04 07:56
This hadn’t happened to me until today, I have always loved the app but today I had chosen a specific route and in the middle of driving it said there was traffic and it found a faster route, went on to say that it would reroute to the faster route unless I tapped not to... obviously I was driving on a dangerous curve and couldn’t tap and so it rerouted me without me wanting it to and I just think that is so dangerous! Then I had to try and get it back to the route I chose while driving! It did it to me a couple times after as well but I was able to tap not to do it but that is not always possible. I tried to disable the rerouting option and couldn’t find the option. Please make an option to disable that feature, very dangerous and annoying while driving!
Please add time to destination on directions page
by Sjenks78 on 2017/10/30 18:05
I use this app multiple times daily, as I'm a traveling therapist and rely on the time display feature on the directions view page to ensure I'm prompt to visits. It's too dangerous to keep swiping back to the map view to see my ETA when I encounter traffic. Please consider adding the time display back on the directions page. Another recent issue I have encountered is that this app does not remember recent addresses anymore. Are used to just be able to type in the street name, and the most recent address will pop up. While this may not seem like a big deal, again, I am a traveling therapist and drive to the same destinations fairly frequently. Please also bring back intuitive input for addresses.
Good features. Bugs. Missing features.
by RynoN96 on 2018/01/11 14:23
When using the app to discover new places on the map make sure you don’t put your thumb in the lower right corner of the screen as it will inadvertently center you on your location, I have done this hundreds of times and it is extremely frustrating. Also when updating information on a place, there are many options missing when you search for them mostly transit or train station and there is no way to comment back to mother google that you have a problem so that is disappointing. But the biggest thing missing in this app is the lack of updating transit for newly introduced service and not showing the lines on the map. St. Louis, Kansas City, and many other U. S. Cities do not have updated transit information that would make the app more useful.
Google maps
by thefsr on 2018/01/03 20:07
Google maps. Thank the Lord they exist!! My husband states I can’t find my way out of a paper bag. He’s right! I alway have the same starting point for anyplace I go. If I go to the grocery store I start from my home. If I go to the mall from the grocery store I go home first. If I go to the gas station from the mall I go home first. Not now, I just traveled by myself 400 miles to a large metro area. I scared to death I would go the wrong way. My city is 463 people. I followed google map through 3 states and here I am. I didn’t get lost. I found motels. Gas stations and restaurants. I was so simple to use. Thank you google I can start exploring and not be afraid anymore
Pause button would be great.
by Matty .T. on 2017/10/30 16:47
Google maps works great but everything can be improved on. What about a “Pause” button on navigation screen. Sometimes you know the first 1/2 of your trip but not the second 1/2. Input your destination, and hit navigate. Once it starts, you hit pause. This turns off the GPS temporarily and spares your battery. But not deleting your trip or destination. Once you get to the part you don’t know, hit “Un-Pause” the GPS comes back on it establishes your position, and starts navigating. Also, a simplified truck setting would be nice too. Just to automatically divert around “Cars Only” highways.

My everyday app
by Raised in the South on 2017/10/04 15:00
I use this app literally everyday, multiple times throughout the day. The train, subway, and walking transit options are amazing!!! While it does has its hangups and strange routes from time-to-time, the good definitely outweighs any negatives. I would LOVEEEEE to have the option of displaying the speed limit of the road I’m on and to be able to report a wrong direction given through voice directions. I’ve encountered oftentimes when I need to turn right but voice directions say left. Keep up the good work, Google. Can’t wait to see how it works locating terminals and gates within an unfamiliar airport.

This app crashes every time I use it lately :(
by KLizbeth on 2018/01/17 17:37
Why is it that the crash hasn’t been fixed? One of my other apps crashed on me yesterday and right away a message popped up that they were on it and if I’d like to send a request for repair. It is soooo frustrating having to re input the address and start the process all over again.
Close
by Villegas Canas on 2018/01/17 16:41
I have a iPhone and decided to try this instead of my regular apple gps. Well I used it twice and both time it brings me close the the location but not where I need to be. The first time I needed to go to a shopping center and it brought me to the street behind it, so I had to reroute myself to the front. The second time it brought me to a location across a field from where I was needing to be. It will get you close but you will have to find the last step yourself.

Google Maps is nearly perfect, Lacks Speed and Speed Limit
by waynepruski on 2018/01/17 14:05
Google Maps is nearly perfect. Voice commands just “work” and 99.9% of the time it nails the correct destination and best route(s). If Google wanted to go for perfection, add current Speed of the vehicle and posted Speed Limit. This would make us drivers more aware to make an informed decision to decrease speed - it would SAVE LIVES. I know it’s possible because other nav apps have this feature. And I know Google wouldn’t be so evil as to withhold this feature because it might infringe on State’s revenue generating schemes (which count on people being unaware of speed and take action, to heck with safety, right? It’s about money!)

Used to be great
by Peggy.stiller on 2018/01/17 13:48
I used to rely on this app all the time. It always got me wherever I needed to go on time and took me around accidents and other issues. Lately, though, I’ve stopped using it because it directs me the same way every day, even if there are accidents and/or faster routes. It wants me to get off at the busiest exit in my city when there are two other less busy exits that will get me there faster every time. It stopped giving me shortcuts and now I take my chances going a quicker way I know and hoping there are no issues. It’s really a shame that I can’t count on this app anymore...not sure what changed for them.

A good app but why can’t I rename custom locations?
by Leroy_Dragonchild on 2018/01/17 07:21
So I travel a lot and while this app is nice to use some things truly frustrate me. For example: 1. Location is sometimes way off or will freeze/lag for no reason (I have full signal, good battery and no other apps open). 2. I can’t name custom locations, only label them which doesn’t always work. I’ll go into my favourites and all my locations/places are named as longitude and latitude. And I cannot rename them at all, only assign them labels which don’t show up when viewing favourites etc. Which means I have to tap each location to figure out why I saved it.
Traffic
by Bredmon Tazmania on 2018/01/17 06:26
Google maps always gives you the short cut to the directions we all need to go. I’ll say it’s the second best app for directions.
The best map app

Won't save my Home location, and more
by BridgeLover on 2018/01/17 04:36
I keep setting my home location, but the app keeps erasing it. Additionally it keeps reverting the "Save recent searches on this device" to ON, after I turn it OFF!!! I suspect this is maybe because I don't use the app connected to my Google account, even though I do have my Google account connected in other Google apps (Gmail, Hangouts, Drive, Docs, etc). However, I don't want Google Maps connected to my account. And it annoyingly keeps suggesting I that I do connect it! But I should be able to just use the app without signing in. It's very frustrating.

Troubles with the new update
by Ravioli123 on 2018/01/17 00:00
I was forced to update my phone and am sadly regretting it. It used to be so simple to immediately switch to seeing the written directions, and it now takes more steps and is harder to accomplish while driving. It also is not updating the directions as often when I’m driving- I noticed it told me on my phone an exit was four miles away with it was a mile away at that time. These didn’t seem to be problems with my older version. I’m sure there are benefits to the update, but I’m not seeing it

Great navigation, not as smooth as it could be
by Kyle_with_clothes on 2018/01/16 21:46
Love the navigation. The app is generally quick and responsive. But if I want to check the directions quickly with one hand, going back is an issue having to reach the tiny back arrow in the upper left. You really should utilize the back swipe (left to right), or the pull down dismiss motion, to go back from this screen. The other issue I have is that it sometimes hangs for a couple minutes if I’m walking out of a place with WiFi and trying to pull up quick navigation as I get in my car. Like it wants to keep using the WiFi, and as it tries to transition, it just throws up for a while.

Everything Needs Improvement
by EricRHarrington on 2018/01/16 20:32
Google Maps allows locals to be ‘guides’ in that they can help tourists and even locals discover and have improved-visits and experiences by allowing ‘guides’ leave reviews, locations, hours, both the positives and negatives of everything from restaurants to fast-food to outlet malls to museums and even health/medical clinics and hospitals. Its fantastic and I recommend this for every tourist, from John Doe to Jeff Bezos. No one is too well-informed: we all co-exist and we can all improve our amazing areas we live and vacation and even perhaps drive through on the way to a more-distant location.

Incorrectly tracking
by VeloMat on 2018/01/16 17:18
Lately I have found Google Maps to incorrectly track me on a road. This is happening mainly around freeway exits and complex junctions. Use to be a lot better. As a result, there is more confusion during these critical areas. I will be traveling along and expect to take one of three close exits. Google Maps will mistakingly track me as taking the first exit, which I didn’t, and therefore provide directions irrelevant to my current path when I need confirmation of which exit I need to take. If this isn’t resolved soon, I will likely explore my other options.

by Marnold100 on 2018/01/16 16:11
This used to be an amazing application for mapping directions. Far superior than apples. Lately, it has been crashing every single time I use it and I have to re-enter the address and do it again. Then if I switch to another app and come back to Google maps it automatically crashes again. I then start over.Google please fix this app
Minor features
by Wgmsarkis on 2018/01/16 13:45
I would love to see the street I’m driving on showing at the bottom of my screen. Also would love to see the speed limits! That would make this perfect! That is the one thing for me that Apple maps has on you!
you’ve arrived???
by yasemincakmak on 2018/01/16 11:58
the “you’ve arrived” feature is DANGEROUS. and it is the reason i will atop using google maps. i find it also very sarcastic because..no! i have NOT arrived. you leave me hanging, the screen switches around just when i need to make sure where im going. terrible

Amazing App, Lacks a feature...
by Calebffhchjchkg on 2018/01/16 03:32
I have forever loved google maps and how updated the maps are in big cities. However, there is a change I would like to see. In Bing Maps, it allows you to drag your route to any alternate highway/road you come up with when setting a destination. This feature can be accomplished by making so that you can press, hold, and drag the blue route to any highway. Also, I have sent repeatedly time and time again feedback about how satellite imagery has not been upgraded in my home area of Quincy, IL since 2009.

Nav voice has left the building.
by Brian You on 2018/01/16 03:02
I can't hear the navigation voice no matter what I do, despite its turned on and all the settings are correct. The maps and the turning are accurate, but for some reason I only hear beeps instead of a voice instructing me... Goes to show how much I rely on the voice. I thought maybe it was my phone, so I tossed my 6 Plus and got an 8 Plus and still the result was the same. Was this an update I maybe wasn't aware of some months ago? If not, please assist. Update: I've tried this and nothing has worked. Is there anything I can do? Have you encountered this situation before?

Frequently tells me to turn the wrong way on one-way streets, no left turn, etc.
by Shawnblog on 2018/01/15 19:05
Although I have been mostly impressed over the years using this, more and more lately I’m getting bad directions as per the title of my review. It’s getting to the point where it’s ridiculous and could cause me some trouble. It has certainly taken me to a location where I was directed to make an illegal turn and turning around to go the right way added considerable time to my trip.

Version 4.43 flawed, please fix
by Tyleem111 on 2018/01/15 16:41
It keeps rerouting and the GPS position bounces around, usually when I get close to the destination. It also gives wild directions that go completely out of the way. Example 37min eta when it should be 7mim. I loved the previous versions, so with these fixed I will change it to 5 starts.
Like it, but I can think of ways it could be better.
by Bibliomom on 2018/01/15 15:22
This app is your typical navigation app, but it sometimes gets confused when you go over overpasses or detour for gas/food. If the app could identify detours, guess the reason, and navigate to a gas station/restaurant/coffee shop, it would be amazing. Even more so if it could route you to places you liked. Also, if it could guess when your car was running low and intentionally deviate so you could refuel, it would totally be a 5 star app. However, this works and it works well.
Only IPhone 5s?
by plexplex on 2018/01/15 14:52
The navigation system after a while turns the map sideways, and if I stop and restart the map it stays sideways and I can’t determine if I should go left or right.
Needs Another update
by Seifiyah on 2018/01/15 13:55
Twice this week I have had a problem with google maps. I live in Atlantic City and there are way too many one way streets but I do expect the application I use to keep up. Anyway, the first incident sent me in a circle for about 15 minutes and then had May a block off the address. The second incident it was sending me down a one way street..... please get it together

by Raybobhere on 2018/01/15 13:08
I always used google maps over waze because waze had this frustrating lag after a turn where google maps was turning with you real time. Now they basically took waxes core and put google maps interface on it. Time to give Apple maps a chance.

Crashing at the worse time
by Gentiana-Sama on 2018/01/15 06:09
I have used and loved Google maps for ever! However, lately the app has been playing an ugly game on me. I’m always used to switching out from the app, going to others (checking messages or even just closing my phone) and then switching back to maps. Lately (the last few months) when I try to switch out and back in, the app crashes and i have to re-enter my destination etc.

Google data collection
by gmaps reviewer on 2018/01/15 04:35
Constant bias to be routed to freeway even though streets would be faster. Many streets show red traffic but I ignore google and find that the streets have no traffic. Also, it seems like google routes me through neighborhoods just to collect more data. For instance it will have me take a round less and often more indirect route only to bring me back to same empty traffic free street I was previously on.

Failing as of late
by iPhone 6, ex-alien blue user on 2018/01/15 03:08
For the past couple weeks, google maps has been failing to correctly locate and navigate me while I’m driving. When it does find me, it fails to update my location as I move and displays my arrow tilted 40 degrees away from my heading. I reinstalled in once, but now I’m going to switch to a more reliable mapping application.

I’ve tried them all and Google Maps is the best navigation app. My two beefs... The road closure data is not always correct and it takes too long to resolve the inaccuracies. It would be nice if GM allowed us to arrange the list of our saved places. I’d love to alphabetize them. Word em up!

I like this app, but the voice guide is not working
by Henine. on 2018/01/14 22:49
I used this app extensively while I was driving. However, the voice guide will always disappear whenever I plug the car USB charger to my phone, as the phone battery dies very fast while navigating, so I often need to charge the phone while driving, but can't have the voice guide at the same time.
Great...except no scale bar
by DawgWhopper on 2018/01/14 21:19

Doesn’t update
by Ssshrimp on 2018/01/14 19:24
I used the app for years with no problem but in the past 3 months it will not update to the next direction. It doesn’t detect when I left the parking lot or got off at an exit and does not always get the location right. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app and it still doesn’t work.

Has been
by /\/\/\ ALP /\/\/\ on 2018/01/14 16:18
Google maps used to be the best. It sometimes tries to do smt else than what I want it to do. Eg. Instead of showing results on the small map area I search in, it zooms out to show “more” results and “omit the results in the area searched”. It occasionally sent me to wrong locations. A Caltrain station was shown in the mountains, luckily I knew it could not be there and turned around to park and figure it out myself on Safari. UI is small and hard to read when driving, Apple maps is bigger and easier to use. It has annoying notifications constantly telling me to keep the app open so it can “update” offline maps. Very. Annoying. Who writes this software to nag the user every day? In the past, Google tricked me to update the app, only to delete the already installed app and then refuse to reinstall the app, telling me to update my iOS to the latest version, which my phone’s hardware would not be able to handle. Dumb Google’s dumb software engineer could not do any better? How come they don’t check the iOS version before attempting to update? This lead to my initiation to Apple Maps and I never went back to Google Maps. Google reviews (for shops etc) is almost as bad as Apple maps’ Yelp, which heavily censors ratings and is very misleading. Google reviews sometimes removes ratings as well, but is not as manipulative as Yelp. Google maps has offline maps, handy when traveling, esp. internationally. Apple maps does not have that (yet). Overall, Google maps is overtaken by Apple maps, which has equally good info and directions, but better UI. I use Apple maps for everyday errands, but keep google maps as a back up and for restaurant reviews and offline maps.

Unending Creativity
by F. Parsay on 2018/01/14 01:44
We are in a world with interconnected conditions and interdependent living beings and we can see that Google Maps is always finding and communicating the realities that are present and also constantly moving at and changing for the future. We witness their powerful transforming practices which brings with it important innovations and insights. Their experiential learning and gathering data from the real situations is a great help in finding successful navigation solutions. What a joy to be a witness and to benefit from their unending creativity and their efforts towards achieving their goals and creating a better life for all. Farinaz Parsay
Totally regret updating
by Dizkoteck on 2018/01/14 01:17
What was once the dominant app for directions is now a death trap waiting to happen. I loved google maps but the last update changed it all. When you put in directions and zoom out it now automatically zooms back in. Why? I want to have an visual of how far the destination is. And can you please stop giving alternate directions while I'm driving and have chosen a route. There are two highlighted routes! Do I exit here or the next one? And for god sakes drop automatic direction change in the middle of the route. If you're telling me go straight I'll go straight but don't tell me at the last second to from the left lane to right exit 300 ft away. The previous version had one of this.

by moin495 on 2018/01/13 21:30
Horrible app. It no longer remembers the setting to Avoid Toll charges option! Even if I click on the "Remember Settings" option. It wipes out the Avoid Toll charges option. Must be a business strategy to force you to pay toll charges!!
No sound👂 in alert.
by Bangheart on 2018/01/13 21:25
It’s nice that now the app offers to remind you when it’s time to leave your house 🏡 so you don’t miss your Bus 🚌 and when it’s time to change from one bus 🚎 to another in a route but none of the reminders offered have sound to them and People can’t constantly have their eyes 👀 on there phone 📱 if they need to have their eyes 👀 on the road so they can see when to ring the bell 🛎 in the Bus 🚎 to be able to get off without passing there stop and if the phone is inside our pocket you’ll never know that you got a message from google maps to leave from your house 🏡 because there’s no sound 👂

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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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,
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.
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.
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.
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...
Whats happening over there.
by Buckeye chris on 2017/11/22 14:25
First off why do you keep changing the out around every update you move stuff around and change the settings? Now the default when starting the app: traffic is on and I get a pop-up that blocks half of the map showing information that I don’t need. Today I’m trying to search for car dealerships around my city. Instead of showing me all around the city or the specific area I’m looking for it’s only showing what’s around my current location. This is quite annoying because I’m trying to find dealerships on the other side of town near my work. Also I must admit the street view is messed up. The blue lines you slide your finger across make it extremely difficult to spin around and look at a location. Every time I try to turn or zoom in it ends up throwing me all the way down the street. One other thing I have an issue with is the traffic. It keeps randomly switching from red to green. Sometimes it will switch back and forth as I zoom in and zoom out it. I’ve been using this app for almost 10 years and up until the last year or two it was an amazing the best. Please keep it simple that’s what we like. Adding new features is great but don’t cloud the basic app and use of the map.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.😁😁
Thanks for fixing Traffic Update
by The3rdshooter on 2017/09/20 15:35
Thanks for listening to complaints about Traffic option always defaulted to turned off. Reassuring to know that you actually try to fix these complaints. Good job. Also, thank you very much for allowing us to delete search history more than one at a time. Yet, still not 100% 5 Star happy about how the Center-On button Automatically zooms in so much on your location. Especially after you got the map scaled to the size that you like to view traffic info and alternate routes, then refresh your location it automatically zooms in too much again, having to reset the desire map scale again and again.
User friendly
by Rembranto on 2017/10/03 12:53
I wish there was a setting mode where I could set Maps to drive only, I use the app a lot. Everyday multiple times a day and at times it switches over to walk mode which I have NEVER used, so that is an annoyance for me. I also detest the notification that pops up and verbally alerts me to my eta. I don't need to hear what is clearly visible on the screen for me to read. Please give the option of a different voice? A British one would be nice. How about this: one that says the Latin names of streets with the right pronunciation? After the last iPhone update it has prompted me to use Apple maps which is problematic for me. How do I switch that off since I prefer Google maps? Help
Great navigation... Only if you have unlimited data
by LLCoolJonny on 2017/10/18 21:26
Minus 2 stars because the app forgets the original route when I'm going out of wifi area without data service, and GMaps attempts to reroute. This may change an originally toll-free route to a toll one - all without notice! Also, when out on the road and cellular data is off, and then I turn data on, the app takes at least 30 seconds before reconnecting/rerouting. This issue is very problematic when I'm Turing data briefly on to search for coffee/gas-stations along the route. Another issue is that the app consumes too much data - probably from downloading pictures associated with Point Of Interest's. My monthly data usage usually goes up to 70 MB's, and 100MB's for each roadtrips. It would be great if there's an option to reduce data usage for pictures.
Latest Update Is Not Good
by Cameron Madsen on 2017/12/07 23:17
The latest update has made the app not very friendly with the iPhoneX. When searching for directions it allows you to swipe to get back to the home screen or multitask to another app. However, when it is navigating this function is completely unusable. To get back to the home screen you have to swipe down from the top, move to another app, and then swipe up to go home. If it was designed that way to prevent using your phone while navigating then it was overthought and a bit too big brotherish. I certainly don’t need Google deciding how I should use my phone while driving. Also, I often use Maps as a passenger to help a driver navigate. I also use it frequently when walking in larger cities I travel to. I am hoping that this issue gets fixed soon so I don’t have to look for an alternative Maps program.
Inconsistent
by Rhzyak on 2018/01/04 20:53
The functionality may be there, but it's either hard, or redundant, or straight up confusing to use at times █ "Satelite and Traffic" shows as a legacy option in the sidebar, only pointing to the N E W location when tapped, It has been this way for almost a year, to my knowledge - Yet, "Explore" is redundant, but is fully functional both on the sidebar or the map itself █ "Explore food and drinks" is incomplete - usually, when trying to use it is because I want to go somewhere RIGHT NOW, so showing a "closed" and "closing soon" advices on the cards would be incredibly useful, rather than having to open each and every location █ the top-left "back" button is inconsistent, at least in "Settings", sometimes it may bring me back to the map, sometimes only one step back
Not good for San Diego
by Todos Santos on 2017/10/15 20:39
Would be a good app as it has all the bells and whistles, but oh my does it pick routes that are often longer in distance and more time consuming. I recently became a Lyft driver, clocking in 50 hours a week, relying on this app for navigation to pick up passengers all around San Diego. I'll give the app that it chooses a good route about 70% of the time, but also often chooses a route that makes me drive minutes out of the way to get back to the same street I was already on. When it comes to my local town, oh boy does it choose ridiculous routes! Especially in residential areas, it will make me go on a wild goose chase while I could have easily taken one street all the way to my destination with less miles and less time. Honestly, the iPhone navigation app was way better, but as a Lyft driver we have to use this or Waze(even worse).
Google maps and google contacts
by rkgdroid on 2017/11/02 04:56
I have been utterly frustrated with maps not being able to easily access my contacts on the phone, when those contacts themselves originate and sync to the same exact google/gmail contact account used to log into google maps. For example, I’ll type in the name of “John Smith” from my contacts, and I’ll get all the John Smith’s that are a data point on google maps and maybe if I’m lucky, it’ll find an address linked from my contacts. Forget it, if you have two address for a friend. Without the exact search terms, it’ll never show up, and you’ll get “poor connection” problems. Yes, weird. I can’t believe I’m the only one complaining. I can’t believe I’ve suffered this long. I can’t believe I’m having to detail this. It just seems too obvious for this problem to have been neglected sooo long.
An essential app for any phone.
by Jedi Jerms on 2017/09/30 01:20
Google’s Maps navigation app is by far the best navigational app there is as of now. With Waze coming in at a close second and Apple’s own navigation app not too far behind. It is the most robust, easy to use, and trustworthy navigation app in my opinion. I have used all three and even with the newest additions of iOS 11, I still have see my timing to some destinations in Apple Maps as incorrect. That raises an eyebrow. Waze is excellent as well, but Google Maps has information that is almost always spot on. Google has truly made something here that people will use for generations to come and it will only evolve into something better.
Delicious, comfortable, good food!
by Ang9942 on 2017/11/16 19:51
A friend recommended Bleu Root to a big group of us going to lunch together. While I like interesting flavors and am a little adventurous, I looked at the menu in advance and it looked a little too gourmet for me, like maybe not enough mainstream options. But I’m glad we went, because it was delicious! Although they had several soups from which to choose, their beef barley soup was there soup of the day. I’m not particularly a soup person, but I ordered it anyway, and it was delicious! Then I ordered a mushroom asiago flat bread that was also delicious. I would go back, and I would recommend. It seemed everyone in the group loved their food! And the service was very pleasant and helpful.
Automatic rerouting needs to stop
by HindrancesSUCK on 2017/10/04 07:56
This hadn’t happened to me until today, I have always loved the app but today I had chosen a specific route and in the middle of driving it said there was traffic and it found a faster route, went on to say that it would reroute to the faster route unless I tapped not to... obviously I was driving on a dangerous curve and couldn’t tap and so it rerouted me without me wanting it to and I just think that is so dangerous! Then I had to try and get it back to the route I chose while driving! It did it to me a couple times after as well but I was able to tap not to do it but that is not always possible. I tried to disable the rerouting option and couldn’t find the option. Please make an option to disable that feature, very dangerous and annoying while driving!
Please add time to destination on directions page
by Sjenks78 on 2017/10/30 18:05
I use this app multiple times daily, as I'm a traveling therapist and rely on the time display feature on the directions view page to ensure I'm prompt to visits. It's too dangerous to keep swiping back to the map view to see my ETA when I encounter traffic. Please consider adding the time display back on the directions page. Another recent issue I have encountered is that this app does not remember recent addresses anymore. Are used to just be able to type in the street name, and the most recent address will pop up. While this may not seem like a big deal, again, I am a traveling therapist and drive to the same destinations fairly frequently. Please also bring back intuitive input for addresses.
Good features. Bugs. Missing features.
by RynoN96 on 2018/01/11 14:23
When using the app to discover new places on the map make sure you don’t put your thumb in the lower right corner of the screen as it will inadvertently center you on your location, I have done this hundreds of times and it is extremely frustrating. Also when updating information on a place, there are many options missing when you search for them mostly transit or train station and there is no way to comment back to mother google that you have a problem so that is disappointing. But the biggest thing missing in this app is the lack of updating transit for newly introduced service and not showing the lines on the map. St. Louis, Kansas City, and many other U. S. Cities do not have updated transit information that would make the app more useful.
Google maps
by thefsr on 2018/01/03 20:07
Google maps. Thank the Lord they exist!! My husband states I can’t find my way out of a paper bag. He’s right! I alway have the same starting point for anyplace I go. If I go to the grocery store I start from my home. If I go to the mall from the grocery store I go home first. If I go to the gas station from the mall I go home first. Not now, I just traveled by myself 400 miles to a large metro area. I scared to death I would go the wrong way. My city is 463 people. I followed google map through 3 states and here I am. I didn’t get lost. I found motels. Gas stations and restaurants. I was so simple to use. Thank you google I can start exploring and not be afraid anymore
Pause button would be great.

Google maps works great but everything can be improved on. What about a “Pause” button on navigation screen. Sometimes you know the first 1/2 of your trip but not the second 1/2. Input your destination, and hit navigate. Once it starts, you hit pause. This turns off the GPS temporarily and spares your battery. But not deleting your trip or destination. Once you get to the part you don’t know, hit “Un-Pause” the GPS comes back on it establishes your position, and starts navigating. Also, a simplified truck setting would be nice too. Just to automatically divert around “Cars Only” highways.

My everyday app
by Raised in the South on 2017/10/04 15:00
I use this app literally everyday, multiple times throughout the day. The train, subway, and walking transit options are amazing!!! While it does has its hangups and strange routes from time-to-time, the good definitely outweighs any negatives. I would LOVEEEEE to have the option of displaying the speed limit of the road I’m on and to be able to report a wrong direction given through voice directions. I’ve encountered oftentimes when I need to turn right but voice directions say left. Keep up the good work, Google. Can’t wait to see how it works locating terminals and gates within an unfamiliar airport.
