Stop moving my map
by ‏Gאיך איךE on 2021/05/06 19:28
Why do you think it improves the user experience to move my map for me. Let me move the map myself during search. Makes it impossible to get oriented when you spin and zoom the map.
Not like it used to be
by leeroy6942 on 2021/05/06 16:45
Used google maps over Apple since getting a smartphone. Google now running into a lot of issues. Loading time increased and google is having a tough time in real time figuring out my orientation, even after moving for a couple seconds. This ends up in missing turns and not capably recalculating route in a timely manner. Also has been recently taking me to the wrong destination, even 15 minutes away at times and once 30 minutes into another town. Hope they get better
Location problem for iphone12
by LBjsnoob on 2021/05/06 16:33
The app does not know the physical location. It keeps showing we are 5 miles off in the trees while we’re on a main interstate. Phone locations are set appropriately for functionality of GPS use.

Why does this app have access to my photo album without permission?
by andrestm on 2021/05/06 05:05
Can someone explain why this app can access my photo album (replicate by selecting a restaurant, going to the Photos section, and selecting “Add Photo”), even though I have not granted it access?

CarPlay use
by NC Retiree on 2021/05/05 22:22
I traded cars for a new one with CarPlay. My old car’s navigation system had an easy to read map, though it didn’t have current traffic information. Besides directions to a specific location, I often used it to explore unfamiliar areas in my new city. CarPlay (Google Maps) is very disappointing because the streets are displayed so faintly I can’t see them and street names are usually omitted. Even when I have a specific destination, I wish I could see nearby streets and their names. Please make the CarPlay version more legible and, when no destination is entered, the neighborhood streets clearly visible.
From a truck driver
by jlcmghyt on 2021/05/05 21:42
This app comes in handy as a back up to my truck gps. If it had a big truck setting so u could put in vehicle info in order for the app to chose the best route then it be invaluable. Instead of a back up tool .

This app has take me to the wrong address on multiple occasions. I didn't think an app could be dyslexic but google maps managed to prove me wrong. Anytime it takes me to the wrong address i habe to pull out ol reliable apple maps. If it werent for google maps being the default for the program my job uses id only use apple maps.

Changes routes without consent
by Samoya13 on 2021/05/05 13:34
I have anxiety, I need to at least have an idea of what route I’ll be going. I chose the most direct route and it happened to take the longest, so without warning it just changed the route - and being that I needed some sense of direction in a new area, I followed and it completely disregarded the route I had selected because when it updated the route it made me take the faster route which wasn’t part of my plan and 100% threw off my morning and so now I’ve had a panic attack before work because it was so unexpected. I hate Google so much today because it didn’t ask to update the route, it just did. People who choose the longer route have a reason and I wish Google respected that some people have anxiety and need to go the route they selected not the suggested fastest route.

More frustrating than it should be.
by JayRuzi on 2021/05/05 08:45
This company knows what it’s doing. No mystery there. This app was once user friendly and now the most fundamental features have been removed and the system made to be less practical, being disgustingly focused on advertising. At best this app should hold a 3 star average rating as it does more to make the simple function mapping more difficult than it should be. I’m looking for an alternative.

Too many "viewed area in Google Maps" in maps history. Makes it hard to find actual specific searches in history. I only want to see places I searched by name. Not every time I opened the map. Also, map history was difficult to find. Why hide that? Rather see history, not restaurants!

Broadway Movers
by 092438481 on 2021/05/04 09:53
Never have I had so much stuff ruined, paintings put into a single rolling container with no wrapping or protection. Skirts on couches and chairs were just shrink wrapped wrinkled. Things that were to be assembled were disassembled with no thought as to how to put them back together. The money I spent for climate control storage was essentially a room with a single air conditioner in the back.....all my things stacked any which way. There are too many other choices. I had trouble reaching anyone in the office about repairs..... suddenly everyone was out. Save your money, spare yourself the insanity.... there are too many other reputable movers and storage facilities. I paid a pretty penny for this very horrible experience.

Horrible App
by JoshMorris0207 on 2021/05/04 03:55
I work for Pizza Hut as a delivery driver and this app is basically impossible to not be staring at it to make sure when the voice ai says to turn isn’t way too early or way too late. Then to top it all off half the time I’m at least half a block off every time. Absolute garbage. It wasn’t always this way but my goodness.

the service was horrible with little to no parking with the most bland food you’ll have for the prices they charge. Was there for a business lunch in and was highly disappointed to the point we all left. Waitresses are rude and take forever to accommodate your needs. By far the worst spot in Charleston to visit. Would not recommend. So bad they had to give a voucher for ‘next time’. Won’t be a next time for my company. They need to close

Kyrgyz - Tajik Boarder Conflict
by jyldyzsmile on 2021/05/02 12:07
I’m very surprised, Google maps shows Zhashtyk, Internacional, Borborduk, Dostuk, Arka villages as part of Tajikistan. This villages has always belonged to Kyrgyzstan. Even the names of villages are Kyrgyz. And Kyrgyz people always lived there. However Tajikistan behaves aggressively towards Kyrgyzstan. They killed 40 people (among them is a 13 yo girl) and burned houses of Kyrgyz people on April 30, 2021. Kyrgyz citizens are evacuated. And Tajik people and authorities continue to steal and burn houses on Kyrgyz land. Tajikistan pretend to be innocent. However they were ready for the attack, as they used guns and weapons there. This is inappropriate that Google maps is on the side of Tajikistan. And I personally take it as a Google’s participation in this boarder conflict.

by Cser654321 on 2021/04/30 21:03
This app used to be good, and it’s still probably the best out there but the random “zoom-to” it does is ridiculously frustrating and makes the app impossible to use. If I’m zoomed in on a town and search for something SEARCH IN THAT TOWN!!! Don’t zoom me to THE ENTIRE COUNTRY, or even a completely different country! That’s not helpful!!!! If I have a list of results don’t zoom waaaaay close in when I click it. I don’t care what else is in the parking lot with it! I want to see it’s reviews and where it is in relation to me and the other options in the list!!!

So reliable and accurate. Much better than Apple Maps and any other navigation application!

I have 4 different navigation apps on my phone and the google maps gives the best route, but is no good when I’m struggling to see the screen. I see the screen on Apple app perfectly fine, but the navigation takes me right off a cliff. Please fix or help me with settings that brighten the screen.

You also apparently deleted a way for me to post a correction in your update protocols. Why make things worse when we want to help you help other motorists? #DoBetter
No longer showing quickest route
by Frenchtum on 2021/04/30 11:03
I live in NYC and need to get places asap because traffic is basically constant. I read recently that Maps no longer suggest the quickest route and I’m finding it to be true. Very frustrating and makes me wanna use another app which I don’t really want to do.
Update
by loganxtym3 on 2021/04/30 07:27
I do not like the new update. When I try to view maps that I’ve made, if I touch the screen at all, it will go back to the my places menu. It is extremely annoying and I can’t get anything done. Also, if you try touching the map to show full screen, it just drops a pen. That is yet another issue that is quite agitating. This is not an issue on the android app. Accidentally touching one of the options at the top or the search bar by swiping it up from the top simply isn’t conventional and doesn’t always work.

The best out there
by drblac0 on 2021/04/03 14:14
So I am a truck driver, I use this app to guide me in my travels. It’s a 21th century road atlas. A lot of old school truck driver always cry about this saying it will get you in a bind. I say, it’s a great tool to use and the misuses of it, like tool will get you in a bind. Would one use a hammer to insert a screw? A paper atlas won’t tell you traffic updates, speed traps, items in the road, places to park or eat. At any rate I use this app in Satellite view, I look in great detail the route it’s plotted out for me. I look at streets, roads, everything. You see I am making sure trucks can go down the route. If I see a truck on a street along my route, I know that there is a 80% chance I can. I look to make sure it’s not trying to send me down a ATV trail.....which how accurate Google maps is.....to even have such trails on a map is amazing. In the end it’s a great tool for drivers car or truck. For walkers or bicycles. Just use it SMART. It’s not design to fail you. Only you can do that. Plan your route, look at it, while driving, READ the road signs. Don’t just use this I.E: input destination, and go....follow it blindly. It’s that action....that will get you in a bind.

It’s alright. Buggy sometimes even with good signal. When I search along the route it will sometimes not come up with any search results, only for me to pass the very thing I searched for prior in my drive. And no it wasn’t a new business, it had been around for years. Also when I search places, one will say it’s 10 minutes out of the way while the other says only a few. Only to realize that the faster one ended up not being as simple as they said, and that the slower one (+10 minutes) was only slow because for some reason it had me take side roads completely around it before arriving, when I could have simply turned directly into it from the road I was on, making it a quick trip. Not all gas stations show up in searches, it almost seems to favor the expensive gas stations. There’s doesn’t seem to be an algorithm that keeps track of the bad traffic times. It will re rout my whole trip to a significantly slower route if it senses traffic, even if that traffic is close to the end of my trip hours away and will be cleared well before I get to that point. If you’re a contractor that has to go in and out of many neighborhoods, it normally recognizes certain entrances while not recognizing others, so it will take you completely around the neighborhood 30 minutes away to the other entrance when you have just passed a perfectly good entrance that has been around forever. It’s still one of the better gps apps, but still way to buggy to trust it
No longer user friendly
by getdemgators on 2020/11/16 22:02
App used to be okay. There was a time when this app would give you turn by turn navigation, after you made a turn it would indicate the next regardless of distance, so you could anticipate the next set of directions and change lanes accordingly. A few updates ago they removed this feature for who knows why. Initially it wasn&#39;t a big deal because you could simply zoom out quickly to see the next turn yourself. Now they have made it so sensitive if you touch the screen or attempt to move the map to see where to go next it starts spinning wildly and fighting whatever you try and do to see the location you are going towards. For example you are driving straight and are going to make a left turn in 1 mile and the address is only 1.2 miles away. So you think “okay I can zoom out a bit to see if the business is on the left or right side of the road after the turn” WRONG if you try to slide the map further to see where to go it will start orienting itself in opposition of what you are trying to do. Zoom in, zoom out, and flip your always North facing settings for no apparent reason. Stop messing with the apps fundamental settings you are going to be responsible for accidents, erratic lane changes, missed exits off the freeway, etc. It is ridiculous and absolutely irresponsible to make such drastic changes in an apps basic functions that people need to use daily.
BACKOUT or Put a FIX IN for buggy update..
by Dmb5381 on 2021/01/15 05:36
Love this map app.. especially being able to share my location real-time with other people. Found this hidden gem feature (for me at least)traveling from IL to FL. Kept ppl I formed without a lot of texts or phone calls. 👍 That said... based on my interaction with the app a recent release royally screwed up city navigation where I’m at near Fort Meyers FL. I hope the update I just installed corrects the issues and madness this app has caused me the last few days bc I don’t know this city from Adam. The app has been literally unusable for 2-3 days navigating the area. So bad the audio told me to go south when I needed to go due north. I looked at the screen and the satellite image was correct on current location and route to intended location. I couldn’t get the audio to toggle on at all. Even after reboot of my iPhone 10. That’s when had no choice but exit your app and use map app plan B. IN SUMMARY, google developers please don’t make me find a new “everyday use” map app so I can rely on it to tell me the correct information in this city. If you haven’t already,, backout, research issues if you aren’t aware, or push an emergency update with fixes to correct things. Thank you 😕
Worse over time
by sarwalmac on 2019/06/08 05:16
Let’s get one thing straight: I love google. I use Google Chrome over safari, Google Calendar over the one that comes with iPhone, and for a long time, I used Google Maps over Apple Maps. Google Maps a year ago was amazing. It always knew right where I was, the voice notifications were brief and prompt, and the app overall was just easy to use. Fast forward to today. Maps only communicates in NSEW directions “Head East” (Who knows that?), the voice notification system is mediocre at best, and to say that Google Maps is glitchy is an understatement. I just went to a new city and drove my car around, and more often than not I was slinging my car across four lanes of traffic trying to make an exit that Google didn’t let me know I needed to take, or saying that I was on the wrong side of the road, going the wrong way or off the road entirely into the bushes (all the while I had at least 3 bars of LTE on Verizon. Coverage and carrier were not the issue). That was the final straw. This app that used to be more helpful was now potentially putting my life (and the life of my grandmother and friend) at risk. I still refuse to use Apple Maps, and have joined Waze. If the glitches can be fixed I may use again, but overall I am very disappointed!
Best Mapping App Available
by kluke3 on 2019/01/19 18:58
I’ve been using Google Maps for many years and have seen it evolve into a terrific app. that I simply couldn’t do without. I have a very poor sense of direction and this app. allows me to get around the big city I live in. The most recent update now includes the speed limit of the road you’re traveling on. This was the only thing I liked on Apple maps, now Google has it too. I live in a big city and so far the Google speed has matched the posted speed and even changed when I cross over an intersection, then the speed limit changes. If you don’t like the speed limit feature, it can be turned off in the settings / navigation screen of the app. Offline maps are an absolute life saver for instanced where you travel to areas where cell signals are intermittent or weak. They are easy to setup and remove. So far, on the iPhone I have not had a single issue with this app., unlike the dreaded Apple maps that to this day, doesn’t always give me the proper directions, and takes too long to figure out when I veer off the path. Google maps, responds instantly, and reroutes you eliminating a lot of stress. In a case where you find an error in routing, if it’s reported to google, they will listen to you and fix it. Be patient though as they have to verify it, before they change it. They have a feature within the app that should be turned on by default, where you shake the phone with the app. open, the the feedback screen pops up.
Routes are NO LONGER accurate!!
by Nwanyioma on 2020/11/15 16:02
I have been using google maps for 5+ years and I love it because it’s very functional. However, as of this last update, the routes have been OFF. I drive to the Bronx from NJ everyday for work, which is about a 30 mile trip one way. I keep the app open with my route entered in case there is an accident and I need to quickly divert. There are tolls on my route, but I have the settings on “avoid tolls”, so I only pay for the GWB bridge or HT tolls vs the parkway/freeway tolls if that makes sense. Normally, my route is about 30-32 miles depending on which route I choose. After this last update, my routes (with the same settings) are now 66 miles or 77 miles to work. WHAT? WHY? The route suggests I drive to Albany or Fishkill (upstate NY) just to get to the Bronx. Any one who lives in tristate knows this is not correct. I toggled my “avoid tolls” off and the routes were back to 30 miles, however, it directs me to drive through the parkway tolls, which I don’t want to pay nor need to. Everything was fine until this last update. Now I am using WAZE because this app is unreliable. With “avoid tolls” turned on with WAZE, my normal route is back. Google maps has been VERY GLITCHY lately. Until it can be fixed, I’m sticking with the WAZE app.
Orientation determined is often inaccurate.
by LoyalPinnerButFrustrated on 2021/01/30 05:01
I really want to feel secure to continue using this app as I am more familiar with it than any other navigation app, but it needs help - especially recently. The last few months it has been increasingly inaccurate when determining &amp; showing my orientation and specific location on the map, especially in the beginning of the navigation, and therefore I often either (1) miss an exit (though sometimes that&#39;s due to a &#34;lag&#34; before the instruction is made - which is another problem), (2) I&#39;ll turn the wrong way when I follow the &#34;turn right&#34; or &#34;turn left&#34; directions spoken, or (3) I&#39;m lead along the correct road but in the opposite direction of what&#39;s needed, thus resulting in a u-turn or other kind of detour. Sometimes u-turns are accessible and no big deal, but in some areas they are not accessible for long stretches, therefore creating a substantial detour in my trip. Idk if this is just a connectivity glitch or what, but these instances are happening for me more frequently and consistently in recent months than I have ever experienced before, so I don&#39;t think my specific location of reception is the issue. Please, please correct these issues.
Not very good or accurate
by Royal Montgomery on 2019/07/15 17:20
Google Maps is helpful, probably, when one is driving. It&#39;s not helpful for someone who has to take transit or walk. Transit often has changes/transfers - there are no actual walking directions available that are helpful. If you&#39;re walking the wrong way, the app doesn&#39;t stop you, just tells you to walk to {location}. Also, some bus stops are very near/across the street from one another and Google Maps has a hard time pinpointing that. That&#39;s the difference between going the wrong way in a strange place or arriving at your destination. I commute to work but Google Maps only shows one route instead of any route, no matter how I change the settings, so I never know when the bus comes. I know when the trolley comes, but it only runs twice an hour when I am out of work and being able to see any kind of alternate route would be nice. I&#39;ve also noticed that we have a trolley line that runs all the way to South Hills Village, but Google Maps just tells you to get off the stop before that and walk for sixteen minutes. I know better, but a person new to the area may not. I just don&#39;t find it very helpful as someone who doesn&#39;t drive.
Better than iOS Maps
by susie107 on 2017/11/13 12:28
I guess I didn&#39;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&#39;s map made me almost lose my mind- &#34;Turn right then turn right! Go southwest then immediately go north then turn right! Turn left then turn right!&#34; 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&#39;s accurate. 4 stars because it turns me sideways sometimes and did have me turn right off of an exit just to make an immediate u-turn when it should have just told me to turn left from the jump. Still- it gets me there which is what I ultimately care about.
Almost perfect (almost)
by Gregory Lerner on 2018/01/23 06:30
For the vast majority of usage, this app has been flawless. The traffic is accurate, the routing is good, and the user interface is simple and easy to use. However, I have found some things to be quite annoying. For one, I have found that sometimes when I am in the far left lane on the highway, the app will think I am on the wrong side of the road causing it to constantly reroute me (this mostly happens in HOV lanes and high speed ezpass lanes). Another issue is that if I purposely choose a slower route because it is fewer miles the app will constantly tell me it found a faster route (I know there is a faster way, but I purposefully chose the longer timed route!) this is very frustrating, and on my last 2 hour drive it told me 5 times that there was a faster way and I had to take my hand off the wheel to cancel the change. Finally, my last complaint is that there aren&#39;t more alternate routes given. I’m lucky if the app gives me 3 options, whereas online you can drag the route to any road and it will find a route. Other than these issues though, the app is very well implemented.
Only sometimes shows the saved locations on my phone
by KarenD345 on 2017/12/05 16:57
I wrote a review a while back that the app no longer showed saved locations making it cumbersome to go to ‘home’ or ‘work’ since those saved locations do not show up in ‘recent searches’. I am very impressed that google responded to my review and fixed the issue. Unfortunately, the fix is not entirely 100% and the app now is rather temperamental about whether or not it shows the stored locations. It seems that if you still have a route displayed and then want to change it, the app won’t show stored locations but when you start from the map/satellite image of your current location, it will. Previous review: Used to work beautifully for the daily commute from/to work/home because of real-time traffic. Now, however, when picking a destination it only shows recent searches and not saved locations like home or work. It’s irritating and defeats the purpose of having stored locations. Yes, I do know the usual way home but the whole purpose of using google maps is to know the best route given the current traffic situation
So frustrating
by Ava stanley on 2018/04/03 16:16
This is a great map, it will show you where everything is, but’s it’s impossible to use on trips or custom maps. If you’re looking for directions without a custom map and for only one destination, this map is for you. If you create your own maps, need to look up multiple destinations, or are on a trip, it’s near impossible. First of all, I had my mom send me the link to our custom map. It send to my gmail, no problem. Then I’d click on the map, and it either wouldn’t load, or take me to Safari. The Safari view would show the map, but decline to let you get directions unless you signed in. Okay. I signed in. Well, it took my back to my home address, and sent me on a infinite loop, going from clicking the link in my email, getting sent to safari, logging in, and losing the map. I had to redownload the app four times before it worked. Second of all, the map legend isn’t interactive. I’m going to new york, and spent six hours working on a custom map, with a pin for every single place I wanted to go. i downloaded the app, only to find that in the map legend, you can’t click on individual icons, forcing you to leave the map legend, and click on every single icon until it pops up. Very dissapointed.
One of the best navigation apps, but isn’t as great as some others
by Patrick7015 on 2019/12/08 04:24
Google Maps is without question one of the most, if not the most popular navigation app. It’s worked decent for me, why, you may ask, am I saying only decent? Well, here’s why. First of all, I use Apple Maps as well, and that app will usually give me more convenient directions/routes to certain places. For instance, if I’m going to the mall and I put it into Apple Maps, it will send me the route that I’d normally take anyway. However, this is not the case with Google Maps. It will usually take me routes that rarely anyone would take to get to said destination, and I’ve found that I would arrive a few minutes later than I would have if I had taken the route I normally take. It also will sometimes glitch while I’m driving and tell me to turn at the very last second, causing me to either slam my brakes or completely miss the turn. This is very frustrating, especially on the thruway. Both of the issues I’ve talked about seem very fixable, and I hope they eventually get fixed and fast because a lot of people use this app and rely on it to get them places every day.
An annoying necessity
by Ninjainthenight on 2019/07/05 23:26
I have used this app for years as I am a courier and the option to put multiple stops is amazing! However within really the last year, development has gotten messy and far too often I see new features just tossed into this app without little thought about them being annoyances to the everyday user. Like a month or so ago you would hit go and instead of automatically starting your route it would proceed to tell you how the traffic patterns are normally and how it is now....thanks I could care less and I don’t need the extra step. Now there’s a bug where you hit star over and over and nothing happens so you need to slide that bar up which then shows you the traffic pattern times (really wanna shove that stupid feature down our throats huh google?) and then hit start. And now it seems to have issues finding the most common of cities saying it can’t find a way there. Best thing I can recommend is wait it out and once google has fixed all the bugs and things seem stable, shut off the auto updates for this app. They tinker with it way too much and you never know what the next problem is gonna be.
Took me to the middle of nowhere 🤬
by Ginjeet on 2018/11/07 19:28
Let me start out by saying I hate google maps. Recently I had to go to a meeting out of town, almost 3 hrs. away. When it said I had arrived I was at a barn out in the middle of nowhere. I’m thinking that maybe I’m 10-15 minutes away and when I put it back in it tells me I’m over an hour away 🤬. It had taken me in the total opposite direction. Someone said maybe it said turn right and you turned left, but no it didn’t do that and if that had been the case and I turned the wrong way it would have rerouted me back to where I needed to be. Yes I had the correct address in. If this had been winter and snowy it could have been deadly. Another time I was going to a meeting somewhere else and that was a little over 3 hours away. I knew most of the way, it was just going into the area where I had to get on the freeway that I wanted the help with but had it on from when I left my home so I didn’t have to mess with it while driving. It kept trying to detour me off my route to what it thought was the fastest way even tho that wasn’t the way I wanted or was going. The so called fastest route had a lot of switch back turns. I wanted the straight shot. It was only 25 minutes difference. IF I CHOOSE A ROUTE OVER A DIFFERENT ROUTE I HAVE A REASON. DON’T REROUTE ME!!!
Updates are not necessarily improvements
by Peej47 on 2020/03/06 18:27
Before your last couple of updates, I would have rated this app at 5 stars, but the last update has sent me looking for a new map app. Google maps used to be my go-to navigation app, but no longer. Markings for roads/highways are so pale now that they’re almost unseeable. Road names don’t appear until you’ve zoomed in so far that you can’t see their relation to other roads in the area. Before the last update, you could look at the U.S. or state map and at least see Interstate highway markings...no more. Once you move on to ‘directions’, the roads on your route are highlighted but you can’t see names of surrounding roads unless you zoom in to a point that makes looking irrelevant. I could go on and on. Your updates have weakened the usefulness of your app. Using Google maps is no longer helpful...it’s frustrating. Wish we could ‘opt out’ of updates or at least choose the version that works best for us. I miss the ease of use and effective markings of previous versions...hope another app has incorporated features you have discarded. I appreciate the years that you helped me in my travels, but I’ll be looking for help elsewhere now. Thanks for the memories....
Wish they would add weather
by manufeng22 on 2019/06/01 12:21
I love the feature that allows you to search along the route for different key words!! What would really make it awesome though would be if I could see what the weather would be along the route assuming that travel rate is kept constant. As extra brownie points, if they could add the ability to easily avoid weather by altering travel such as stopping to take a break to allow a storm to get ahead of you or possibly taking a different road. Showing the impact on travel would based on the decision could be similar to the way the traffic option works such as: “bad weather ahead, minimize contact with storm by taking a 10 minute break or taking a different route. Impact would result in a 20 minute delay. Would you like to take this alternate route?” If they could add the ability to set a speed alert, that would be amazing! For example, ability to alert driver when traveling at speed which is greater than 11 MPH over speed limit. Another helpful option relating to speed would be one that alerts the driver if the current speed limit is changing ahead and when it actually changes.
It’s still the best....except
by Joker5456 on 2019/01/12 19:49
I’ve been using Google maps since it first came out and it’s been great, except for a couple minor issues. I don’t use it for turn-by-turn navigation, I use it to estimate my travel time based on current traffic conditions and to find an address. It does those tasks fairly well, except.... On my phone’s tiny screen I cannot read the street names. Thankfully there is a zoom feature....except...and this makes the app absolutely useless....the street names do not get bigger. Do the programmers not understand thats why I want to zoom in? To not only see the tiny streets but to enlarge the tiny street names? Another issue I have is after it plots your routing, it overwrites the street names with the blue route highlighting. To read the street names you have to switch between the text route and the map route. There are several other issues I have but the last I’ll discuss here is the inability to forecast the route like you can in the desktop version. I have to switch to my laptop if I want to know what time I have to leave in order to arrive at a certain time, but many times I don’t have my laptop with me.
Love the new update
by Dissatisfied user 8897 on 2018/07/30 11:10
Used to have to click 2 or 3 buttons to start a route, now simply load the address, click start and BAM you&#39;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 &#34;get directions to -- in google maps&#34;. Clicking on that loads maps, but it always says &#34;can&#39;t find a way there&#34;. 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 &#34;open in google maps&#34; instead of the native apple maps would be great. —————UPDATE————— There is a bug where when you save a location to one of your lists, then add a custom label, it doesn’t save the custom label. Clicking on the saved location doesn’t show any label added. Searching for the label works, but it very inconvenient. I add custom labels to places I go, and look back through the maps later.
Worse and discriminatory
by cheeryinmay on 2019/06/27 18:45
I’m a Chinese native living in the US and I keep my iOS in Chinese. First, the app won’t let you choose which language to use. Second, it shows reviews of a place in Chinese first. For famous places like the MET museum in NYC, there are hundreds or thousands reviews in Chinese and I cannot see any reviews from people of different backgrounds unless I scroll for ten minutes, I guess. I actually feel somewhat discriminated by this sorting of reviews. Showing the most helpful reviews (helpfulness rated by other reviewers) is a much fair and meaningful way. Third, the Google Translation is imbedded no matter people complain about it. They seemed to stop translating English into Chinese now but it continues to “translate” Traditional Chinese to Simplified Chinese (my iOS language), which is absolutely unnecessary (99.9% Chinese speakers can recognize both ways of writing). Even worse is that in the last version I found some reviews are shown with the tags “translated” and “original” but there isn’t any content after “translated”; basically, it didn’t “translate” but has those tags, which wastes space that I only see “translated” and a space line before clicking the review to expand it. Google, stay simple! We don’t want Your opinion and interference.
Fix zoom out/in on lists
by Flivin on 2018/09/17 04:50
Hi! I love the list feature in google maps, but I have one issue. I use the built-in Want to Go green marker on places, but I also have my own list that I call Actively Want to Go. Anyway, when I click my places and look exclusively at this list I’ve made, I like to zoom in on a neighborhood and click a place to get more info on it. Once I’ve read the info (hours, etc), I usually exit out of the place-specific info and want to see what else is in that neighborhood that’s on my list. Once I ex out of a restaurant’s info, the view zooms out completely and I have to zoom back in and find where I was. This is super annoying! Would really appreciate a fix! This is especially annoying bc sometimes a list I’ve made spans multiple cities in the US, and so once I zoom in and read a New York cafe’s hours and other info, I exit and then it zooms out and gives me a view of the whole continental US. This is super annoying! Pls fix, Google 💜 the only fix right now on my end is to avoid making lists that span multiple cities to avoid a large zoom out, but I think this is something y’all can fix easily
I was in love.
by Yadira1738 on 2018/01/03 01:19
I fell in love with Google Maps maybe about 7 years ago. It’s the reason I was one of the quickest pizza delivery drivers and why I’m always the one navigating family trips. I’ve been in Europe for 3 months now, and I rely desperately on my saved locations when exploring new countries. It was working beautifully until about 2 weeks ago (I assume with this new update), and when I was in London last week I was struggling to hit all the places I planned on because the map was refusing to show my saved places (my data is slow so I rely on Google Maps). I’m taking my last trip tomorrow and I don’t want to say that Google Maps is going to ruin the trip - but it definitely won’t make my trip any easier (like it used to). This is coming from a Google Maps enthusiast that annoys all her friends when she worships it (and bashes all other “Maps”). Please Google, fix this problem. I’m sure you won’t be able to for my trip tomorrow, but if my comment helps someone else, then AWESOME! And to the Google Team, I love you. Really. Thank you. May you get all the donuts you deserve.
The Fall: Google Maps’ Descent into Chaos
by AnEmily7 on 2019/07/23 03:21
Google maps has always been quite reliable in the past, but over the last few weeks it has been terrible about sending us the best route to avoid traffic. I’m currently stuck in a traffic jam caused by 4 accidents. There was an easy route to avoid this jam completely, but the Google Maps App didn’t tell us there was a jam until we were already stuck in it, high on a bridge to switch freeways. This jam has clearly been building up for a considerable period before we got the the place where we could have avoided it, but the app gave us no advance warning. Then, when we were irrevocably stuck, it suddenly had information about all the accidents and the extent of the traffic blockage. This seems a pretty unacceptable lapse in providing critical information about routes and traffic flow. Additionally, while it often chooses a logical route, there are times that it sends us in literal circles, ever farther from what is clearly the most practical path to our destination. This too is a recent failing. I don’t know the cause of Google Maps’ recent lapse in quality, but I hope it is rectified soon so that I don’t have to find a new map service.
The worst feature
by drhiggs on 2018/04/12 19:26
Google maps has recently added probably the worst feature you could possibly imagine to an map app. If you live in a dense urban area like me (I live in Atlanta). The absolute last thing I want my map app to do when I&#39;m getting close to my destination is to assume I know the rest of the way and begin to zoom out and rotate to look aesthetically cool or something. I&#39;m not there yet! In many cases I&#39;ve never been to this store/restaurant/venue and when 100s of places are in only a couple blocks of each other I don&#39;t need my map app to zoom out and rotate to look cool when I&#39;m still trying to figure out where I&#39;m going! I have to try to rotate my head to follow the screen all while I&#39;m still driving. I have missed my location many times because of this completely unhelpful feature. This may be fine in rural areas, but this is a terrible design flaw for highly dense cities. It&#39;s dangerous and serves no constructive purpose, and is just a shallow attempt to look fancy for an absolutely zero functional or helpful propose. Wait till I am parked and not moving or have somehow indicated that I gave arrived.
Recent update
by okwellisethisnamethen on 2020/10/29 13:08
I am an avid user of this app as I drive a company vehicle daily for the past 10 years, this past week I’ve noticed some issues. When getting close to my destination I usually scroll forward to determine which way to go to park on the right side of the street, but as of this past week this function has not worked. Instead it will turn around to the opposite direction, that being said I now have to use two fingers to guide the map to make that happen oppose to one finger. Second thing I’ve noticed is that once entering a destination and seeing the over view I sometimes zoom in at the destination for specifics, instead of it zooming with a double tap and drag it zooms to a random location along the route. I’m guessing these are new bugs that come with a new upgrade, hopefully these changes weren’t intentional because I find using gmaps to be way better than Apple Maps but if this remains Apple Maps has the same feature that I’m used having on gmaps and I’ll have to stick to what’s convenient for its intended purpose. Please fix this ap maps stinks I think, I should check that last update they put out a while ago.....
Navigation slow of just plain stops in iOS12
by Zildjiancat on 2018/10/31 20:53
Help! Since updating my iPhone to iOS12, google maps is practically useless for me. The lag in navigation is unbelievable, if it works at all. Since updating, the voice directs me where to go AFTER I’ve passed the turn/street/place. She’s constantly telling me to make u-turns. And to make them where there is no place to make them. I often drive right past my destination and she hasn’t even gotten to the street I’m on. And more often than not, Google Siri stops providing voice direction mid-way through a journey, instead making me have to look away from the road to see where the next turn will be. Very dangerous. I have preferred google maps to Apple’s version all along. Sadly, that may soon change for me if google maps continues its glitchy ways. If there’s a fix, please let me know!!! Also - that “explore the neighborhood” thing that immediately pops up and covers 60% of the map screen when I need to get directions is annoying, as it’s an ad gimmick that forces the user to do an extra step (swipe it away) before navigating. Get that thing out of there! If I’m looking for directions to somewhere else, I’m not gonna explore anything where I already am, as I’m LEAVING the area. Sheesh!
Great...when it works
by Lightly Salted on 2018/04/28 13:28
Google has a amazing knack for to combining sheer brilliance with mind-numbing incompetence, and this app has plenty of both. I use it from time to time because it does one thing extremely well, routing. Especially in traffic I find the routing to be the best and most reliable there is. Estimates of traffic times are very good, and alternate route selection tends to be quite solid and useful. No for the bad part. For whatever reason, Google (bless their hearts) cannot seem to write a functioning app. Through numerous iterations Google Maps has been plagued with very serious, frequent bugs of the types that will leave you stranded. The current version of the app freezes, loses track of your current location, refuses to connect to the internet for absolutely no reason, and is just downright flakey. Previous versions have had even more serious problems. (Some will recall the version that refused to navigate from the current location, rendering the app useless for navigation.) So try Google Maps for routing, but don’t rely on it for your sole source of navigation because it will leave you stranded. At least until Google learns how to write more reliable apps.
Great Apple Maps Replacement in CarPlay...Except:
by ggrudziak on 2018/09/25 04:43
Everything in Google Maps is excellent. Now with iOS 12 adding support for third-party navigation maps in CarPlay, we’re now able to use Google Maps and Waze in CarPlay. However, there are two main issues. One, there’s no speed limit. This is a necessity and it’s kind of inexcusable that Google Maps doesn’t have this feature while Apple Maps and Waze (also from Google) do. Two, the voice feature doesn’t work at all in CarPlay. All the proper permissions have been allowed and all that happens when you press the microphone icon on the car screen in Google Maps is that you get the sound and the visual but nothing else. It sometimes says “No internet connection” and cancels, but mostly it hangs there. What’s happening is that it’s hanging there listening but it’s not receiving audio from the car’s microphones. I know that works because if you press the voice button on the steering wheel and use Siri, she hears and responds fine. Must be fixed to allow voice control or add Siri support.
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 you need to read this.
by Kariidee on 2019/01/19 08:22
I’ve been using google maps since forever! I cannot give them a bad review. Yeah, there may be and continue to be little details that many people may want to change and so forth but I consider it to be a great gps. Anyways I’m contacting google through the App Store to let you guys know that while I’ve been using google maps for work to complete my deliveries. I’ve noticed that the many places I go to make these deliveries the gps points me out to the incorrect locations most of the time. I usually have to go and find the addresses blindly until I can locate my customers location. I am not sure if you’ve sent out a driver to Lauderdale Lakes, Florida to update the street views and new developments. But there are many new buildings and older buildings standing today that google maps hasn’t updated on. Hopefully, google maps can update this soon enough. A lot of changes are occurring in this side of town.
Maps counties to have offline issues
by sporacer on 2020/10/21 00:42
For the last few months even after reinstalling the app resetting my device network settings ect it still continues to think I’m offline and changes the end address to a “general area”. I deliver for Grubhub and when this happens maps will take me to completely wrong locations even after a few minutes when it decides to come back online airplane mode off and on will sometimes correct the issue but I still have to restart directions repeatedly and recently road work and construction has caused maps to try and send me completely out of the way of my destination by miles not blocks. I still prefer Google over Apple Maps or Wayze but if this issue continues i will just uninstall the app like I did 4 years ago when google maps was having similar issues with addresses and off/online maps and traffic. *would be awesome if like in Apple Maps google indicated stop signs and traffic lights. Also a lot of speed limit data is incorrect the other day the last sign I had seen while traveling down a road was 35 but google showed 50mph
DO NOT update your Google Maps app until they fix insane and dangerous bugs.
by what be all this noise on 2020/09/14 04:02
The last couple weeks, it has been: verbally telling me to turn left while visually displaying a right turn, and vice-versa; unable to renavigate/redirect until 2+ minutes into your new routes, thus sending you in circles, wrong directions, off incorrect exits; routing me 2-10+ miles off the route it said 1 minute ago, and subsequently adding 10min-1hr to my drive time (I took what should have been a 3-hour road trip three days ago, and by constantly changing my directions, instructions, etc it ultimately added well over 1hr to my travel time); telling me to make impossible or illegal U-Turns as well as multiple u-turns multiple times back and forth; telling me there will be stand-still traffic where there is none, and vice-versa; sending me on to roads one street before or after the correct road, including telling me to turn into a cemetery 3 times in a row when I was trying to get to an auto parts store with a completely different address than the cemetery; no longer functioning or connecting in areas where for years, up until a couple weeks ago, it had no trouble connecting; and worst of all, directing me to go into oncoming traffic.
Google’s political agenda shows
by Stangster1 on 2019/11/03 05:56
What is with Google Maps and the continuous diminishing of the state lines??? It is getting harder and harder to tell where the state lines are, because Google is making the lines so faint - especially when zoomed in. Just Google doing its part to influence the masses to incorrectly see our precious nation merely as one mass democracy ruled by the popular vote - and to diminish the historic republic our nation was so wisely established as and the precious electoral college that our nation has always had. Hope I’m wrong, but is Google seemingly doing its part to promote the notion that the United States is a democracy instead of the republic that it is? Actual democracy is like two wolves and a little lamb deciding on what’s for dinner. A republic allows for the lamb to have a chance to save itself from the will of the two wolves. Liberty is a well armed lamb, to protect itself from the tyranny of the masses and the tyranny of the popular vote, where 50% plus one vote can simply run over and force its will on the 50% less one vote populace. The electoral college is one more institution put into place by our founding fathers to try to protect the voices of the smaller states; to prevent California and New York from imposing their will on the smaller states.
Need to disable auto-rerouting
by sarcasm central on 2019/02/05 20:22
I’ve been using Google Maps for a long time and overall I’m satisfied with it. However, there are two things that I’d like to see implemented: 1) Allow the user to select alternate routes when in offline mode. When in online mode, I can select a route I’m most comfortable with and not being able to do this in offline mode is annoying. I don’t want to be limited to the “fastest” route. 2) Allow the user to disable the auto-rerouting option without having to use the app in offline mode. There are many times when I’m not interested in saving 5 minutes by taking an unfamiliar route, but I still want to see current traffic and ETA. Having to fight with the app and manually hit “decline” to a route change is annoying and distracting. There is no reason why the app should need physical interaction from a user while they are focused on driving. Maybe allow the user to switch the default action to “decline” instead of “accept,” and add the ability to choose via voice control?
Stop trying to be Waze
by GG245777543236 on 2018/12/12 22:04
I have Google maps, Waze and the Apple maps apps on my phone because a perfect map app doesn’t exist and I like/dislike all 3 for different reasons. We all know Waze tries to dodge traffic even if that means taking you 10 miles out to a roundabout way up a mountain and/or through the underbelly of a city you never knew existed. This can be refreshing or annoying depending on the situation.... whereas Google maps was more straight forward. Lately though Google seems to have adopted this Waze strategy of zig zagging me through neighborhoods to get 8 miles when an arterial road or highway IS available and NOT too backed up with traffic. Recently I had my boss with me for a ride along and I seriously think he thought I was completely stupid due to the funky ways we were going everywhere which made zero sense yet this was all the Google maps navigation. Honestly it was embarrassing. Please add a feature so we can choose if we want the roundabout or straight forward route rather than forcing us on these scribble doodles across Town which inevitably involve 4-5 left turns onto 5 lane roads with a 60 mph speed limit and not traffic light in sight. The KISS philosophy would serve you well here
Google Maps, I love you, but...
by peemree on 2018/01/31 22:35
By far one of my most frequently used, long-running apps. And now I live in NYC so have become obsessed with the new feature allowing us to label places as “want to go”, etc. My only complaint with Google Maps is its lag time in catching up to my location. It can sometimes take 5, 10+ minutes for the app to update my location from when previously used. My one *request* is that the app have more options to customize the pins! Example: when creating a new list, it would be helpful if there were multiple colors to choose from, rather than just having the baby blue option. This would help to distinguish between categories when looking at the map alone (rather than having to go and search through the lists). Maybe even allow for a custom-made option, such as using an emoji as a category instead of a color at all? This would be a total game changer and so improve my use of the app when searching for specific cuisines, unique features, etc.!
My review
by Little Blind Girl on 2019/05/29 03:10
I like this app. I don&#39;t drive, so if you do, can&#39;t help ya. But, I can tell you the app is wonderful at finding stuff in the area. 5 out of 5. Problems: I am a blind user and your app is almost perfect. One problem is on the For You tab, which I would love to use, but it wants me to select an area I care about on a map, which I can&#39;t do by any means. The second problem, most likely having nothing to do with me being blind, is when I have to press back to my location in order for it to measure distance correctly. Suggestions: I have two suggestions that would help me and possibly some others. The first one is for it to tell you the bus stop numbers. The second one is a notification you could turn on to tell you that your stop on the bus is getting close. This would be useful because not all the buses have the speaker system and even if I ask the driver to tell me a little heads up would be nice. Over all, this app is very wonderful.
Changes my destination
by dragonkoh on 2018/01/31 16:16
I used to have no issues with this but lately it has been changing my destination with no notification and taking me to the wrong spot. This is happening 100% of the time now and so I can’t rely on it anymore because it takes me to a random location each time. Over the past week it has caused me to drive an extra 50 miles and wasted several hours of my time. Not sure what they did to this last update but I’ll be finding an alternative now. EDIT IN RESPONSE: Typically I’d be navigating based on latitude/longtitude coordinates but it also happened when setting a destination based on address. I also found that it tended to send me back to certain locations repeated times as long as they were within a mile or so of the actual destination. I have no saved addresses so that wouldn’t have been the cause. EDIT 1/31: Yes, I’d be using Safari and a link that opened Google Maps with the coordinates prefilled. The destination would always be accurate for a few minutes but the route would silently change on me and point me to somewhere totally different, sometimes up to a mile away in a completely different direction nowhere close to the original destination.
GLITCHES!!!!!
by ehfyoutube on 2020/06/26 08:50
My whole job is driving around the north eastern sector of the United States and Canada. Google maps tries to drive me around in giant circles when there is any Road construction, it takes me the long way all the time, not to mention it&#39;ll switch the address on me, all on its own, making me late for my jobs and causing me a lot of gas money and mileage. Googles monopoly is too big to fail, and so big that there&#39;s no way for me to communicate with them to tell them what their product is doing to me and my livelihood. Too many major glitches to post, but one of my favorites is when the navigation voice will incessantly keep asking you if you would like to take a alternate route to save three minutes, and no matter how many times you hit the no thanks button, the voice will immediately keep repeating itself over and over and over asking you over and over and over if you would like to save three minutes. That&#39;s not a choice, when it keeps repeating itself and asking to the point of making your driving experience extremely dangerous and distracting. If any of you computer scientists are listening, please at least fix this last glitch it should be a relatively simple fix
Better than sliced bread
by News van on 2018/08/11 23:26
It gives you such detail that is amazing, one of the best apps I have on my iPad I not only use it to find places I need to be in it kills me a time estimated time that you will arrive, very handy. And the turn by turn directions outstanding I don’t know why you would need To use any other app for Finding a destination . Used to be hard to kind of find places that’s in the past we get to the right place the first time with the outstanding turn by turn directions. The only thing it lacks is to be able to see real traffic, I did one time was able to see real traffic cars that passed me in the cars that passed in real time because it only was one time I cannot get that optional more. What happened Google maps. I would recommend this app to my grandmother it sure does a good job thank you very much Sincerely yours Never get lost
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.

I’m writing about my current property manager Dawn Becker at American Homes 4 Rent. She has only been our property manager for a short time of the 4 1/2 years that I have been renting the property; but, she has been an absolute GODSEND! In the brief time that I have gotten to work with her she has tried in every way possible to help my family in our rental with any issue that has come up. Dawn has been amazing at going to bat for us with dire maintenance concerns that could not wait; however, without her help they would have waited and our family would have suffered. Dawn shows good communication, she is a team player, she shows the ability to work well with others in any situation as well as dealing with changes easily, she is very knowledgeable in every area that I’ve ever ask her about and if she ever didn’t know the answer she always got tight back to me. In my opinion, AH4R should train every property manager to be as efficient, professional, adequate and kind as Dawn Becker!
It’s google trash
by jdhyndjjgr on 2020/04/10 03:10
Just like everything else with google things keep going downhill (especially the search engine). Maps gets worse with every update. Worst is it never keeps up with movements and distance despite any change to any settings that google recommends it stays about 10-15 seconds behind. I ride a motorcycle and there is no way with the gloves I have to touch the screen. It detects traffic and sends me down a different route that takes twice as long and I can’t cancel it. When planning trips where I know the route I want to take and I set it to that yet googles mighty reroute thinks it can’t shave a minute off by sending me down side streets. By thinking it can save that one minute I end up in rural side streets and distant loops that end up taking longer. Over maps is terrible. Lately I’ve had to memorize the route before hand and keep the app off while traveling, defeating the point of GPS maps. If they fixed the app so it kept up with movement and basic direction that would be a good start. Then add options like “never change pre-planned route” and and option to not take traffic into account as much for motorcycles that lane split. Just give people a few more settings
Masterpiece
by Fuzzboy7 on 2020/04/25 15:53
Google 5.41 is a masterpiece. The display is gorgeous, the way you rate your trip at the end is fantastic, and it is still ole reliable when it comes to getting you where you want to go. Google is adding new places to its map services faster than ever and provides many ways to get there. The complaint list I have is small: Some old roads that are no longer available are still being routed through google maps. Occasionally the speed limits do not match either and it would be great to customize what displays you would like to have on at all times such as speed limit vs. your current speed. Also, rarely when you change direction after a stop, it does not pick this up quick enough and can be somewhat confusing for those bad with directions. All in all, Google maps has come a long way and I believe it is well on its way to becoming what we have all been waiting for and please: DO NOT CHANGE THE DISPLAY STYLE.
Warranty Exchange - Incredible Customer Service Experience
by Andrea and Murray on 2020/03/15 20:51
Long story short. Went to Mattress Firm and spoke with Mike Paso about what we thought was a defective mattress (bought back in 2013). He explained the process. We followed the process, and within less than 3 weeks we had a letter from the company giving us full credit (from our initial purchase) to apply to a new mattress. We went back to see Mike and he was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the products in the showroom. After learning a lot and lying on several beds, Mike made our decision a well-informed one. He consulted with another colleague at the store (Catherine- and she was also incredibly helpful) and in no-time our purchase was processed with our mattress refund applied. Thank you Mike for your amazing customer service - especially in today’s world of “go do it yourself” service. You truly made our experience a great one. Thank you also to Mattress Firm for standing behind your products.
Best public transit mapping & predictor
by Sybil.Disobedience on 2018/01/23 12:53
I can’t say if their public transportation mapping and predictions are the best in every major city, but I can attest to the San Francisco Bay Area, which is not very easy to navigate, so let a native save you a lot of trouble. Forget all the other apps because they’re never as accurate nor as intuitive. Google has more resources to notify within seconds of schedule changes, quicker than the respective government agency where the delay may be (ie Muni accidents might not show up for 20 mins on predictions, yet Google Maps will immediately notify you and offer reroute)So no matter where you are traveling from, forget Muni app, or 511, or BART, etc., just coordinate your schedule through Google Maps. I also recommend getting a Clipper Card. Easiest way to keep track of transit passes and if you’re not sure your schedule you can just load cash which is redeemable on all transportation systems (though obviously passes are your best value).

I am an Uber driver and I switch between Google maps which is configured to work with the Uber App and Waze because Google Maps driects me to too many streets that are no longer available from my location. And many other other route issues. It also directs me to make right turns followed dangerous left turns through busy intersections where there are no traffic signals, in situations where if I had travel 1 block further, I would be able to make a right turn and then make the left turn at an intersection with a traffic signal. Too often on freeways it directs to an exit pass the exit directly on to my destination street or close to it, then I have to make at least 2 right turns to get back to the destination, which I already passed on to Freeway. The biggest issue for me is in areas in Los Angeles when I have the option to enter 2 or more freeways with no clear indication of which Freeway I should take to get to the designated exit. Another problem is that the next turn or Freeway exit is not displayed constantly.
Please create feature to save/remember current trips
by trojanaurora on 2019/01/05 19:33
I agree with an earlier reviewer about the sporadic use of ‘landmarks’ in the directions, rather than using only street names. It’s weird and arbitrary. Then it switches between giving directions in feet or fractions of a mile, or sometimes doesn’t give turn directions until it’s too late to safely execute the turn. Sometimes voice directions don’t come at all and I have to look at the phone while driving (!) to see what to do next. Recently, the reminders to leave have not been coming through each time they are requested, which I rely on to plan my trips accordingly. Aggravating! My main frustration with this app is that it erases open directions if I accidentally click out of the app or into it from a Notification, or when I’m editing stops but use the &lt; arrow to back out. I frequently have trips with multiple stops, so losing my entire trip and starting from scratch is INFURIATING. If there was a way to save current trips or retrieve them, that would be so helpful!!!

Stop moving my map
by ‏Gאיך איךE on 2021/05/06 19:28
Why do you think it improves the user experience to move my map for me. Let me move the map myself during search. Makes it impossible to get oriented when you spin and zoom the map.
Not like it used to be
by leeroy6942 on 2021/05/06 16:45
Used google maps over Apple since getting a smartphone. Google now running into a lot of issues. Loading time increased and google is having a tough time in real time figuring out my orientation, even after moving for a couple seconds. This ends up in missing turns and not capably recalculating route in a timely manner. Also has been recently taking me to the wrong destination, even 15 minutes away at times and once 30 minutes into another town. Hope they get better

CarPlay use
by NC Retiree on 2021/05/05 22:22
I traded cars for a new one with CarPlay. My old car’s navigation system had an easy to read map, though it didn’t have current traffic information. Besides directions to a specific location, I often used it to explore unfamiliar areas in my new city. CarPlay (Google Maps) is very disappointing because the streets are displayed so faintly I can’t see them and street names are usually omitted. Even when I have a specific destination, I wish I could see nearby streets and their names. Please make the CarPlay version more legible and, when no destination is entered, the neighborhood streets clearly visible.

This app comes in handy as a back up to my truck gps. If it had a big truck setting so u could put in vehicle info in order for the app to chose the best route then it be invaluable. Instead of a back up tool .

Anytime it takes me to the wrong address i habe to pull out ol reliable apple maps. If it werent for google maps being the default for the program my job uses id only use apple maps.
Upside Down

Changes routes without consent
by Samoya13 on 2021/05/05 13:34
I have anxiety, I need to at least have an idea of what route I’ll be going. I chose the most direct route and it happened to take the longest, so without warning it just changed the route - and being that I needed some sense of direction in a new area, I followed and it completely disregarded the route I had selected because when it updated the route it made me take the faster route which wasn’t part of my plan and 100% threw off my morning and so now I’ve had a panic attack before work because it was so unexpected. I hate Google so much today because it didn’t ask to update the route, it just did. People who choose the longer route have a reason and I wish Google respected that some people have anxiety and need to go the route they selected not the suggested fastest route.

More frustrating than it should be.
by JayRuzi on 2021/05/05 08:45
This company knows what it’s doing. No mystery there. This app was once user friendly and now the most fundamental features have been removed and the system made to be less practical, being disgustingly focused on advertising. At best this app should hold a 3 star average rating as it does more to make the simple function mapping more difficult than it should be. I’m looking for an alternative.
Covid info inaccurate

Too many &#34;viewed area in Google Maps&#34; in maps history. Makes it hard to find actual specific searches in history. I only want to see places I searched by name. Not every time I opened the map. Also, map history was difficult to find. Why hide that? Rather see history, not restaurants!

Broadway Movers
by 092438481 on 2021/05/04 09:53
Never have I had so much stuff ruined, paintings put into a single rolling container with no wrapping or protection. Skirts on couches and chairs were just shrink wrapped wrinkled. Things that were to be assembled were disassembled with no thought as to how to put them back together. The money I spent for climate control storage was essentially a room with a single air conditioner in the back.....all my things stacked any which way. There are too many other choices. I had trouble reaching anyone in the office about repairs..... suddenly everyone was out. Save your money, spare yourself the insanity.... there are too many other reputable movers and storage facilities. I paid a pretty penny for this very horrible experience.

Horrible App
by JoshMorris0207 on 2021/05/04 03:55
I work for Pizza Hut as a delivery driver and this app is basically impossible to not be staring at it to make sure when the voice ai says to turn isn’t way too early or way too late. Then to top it all off half the time I’m at least half a block off every time. Absolute garbage. It wasn’t always this way but my goodness.

Would not recommend. So bad they had to give a voucher for ‘next time’. Won’t be a next time for my company. They need to close

Kyrgyz - Tajik Boarder Conflict
by jyldyzsmile on 2021/05/02 12:07
I’m very surprised, Google maps shows Zhashtyk, Internacional, Borborduk, Dostuk, Arka villages as part of Tajikistan. This villages has always belonged to Kyrgyzstan. Even the names of villages are Kyrgyz. And Kyrgyz people always lived there. However Tajikistan behaves aggressively towards Kyrgyzstan. They killed 40 people (among them is a 13 yo girl) and burned houses of Kyrgyz people on April 30, 2021. Kyrgyz citizens are evacuated. And Tajik people and authorities continue to steal and burn houses on Kyrgyz land. Tajikistan pretend to be innocent. However they were ready for the attack, as they used guns and weapons there. This is inappropriate that Google maps is on the side of Tajikistan. And I personally take it as a Google’s participation in this boarder conflict.

by Cser654321 on 2021/04/30 21:03
This app used to be good, and it’s still probably the best out there but the random “zoom-to” it does is ridiculously frustrating and makes the app impossible to use. If I’m zoomed in on a town and search for something SEARCH IN THAT TOWN!!! Don’t zoom me to THE ENTIRE COUNTRY, or even a completely different country! That’s not helpful!!!! If I have a list of results don’t zoom waaaaay close in when I click it. I don’t care what else is in the parking lot with it! I want to see it’s reviews and where it is in relation to me and the other options in the list!!!

I have 4 different navigation apps on my phone and the google maps gives the best route, but is no good when I’m struggling to see the screen. I see the screen on Apple app perfectly fine, but the navigation takes me right off a cliff. Please fix or help me with settings that brighten the screen.

You also apparently deleted a way for me to post a correction in your update protocols. Why make things worse when we want to help you help other motorists? #DoBetter
No longer showing quickest route
by Frenchtum on 2021/04/30 11:03
I live in NYC and need to get places asap because traffic is basically constant. I read recently that Maps no longer suggest the quickest route and I’m finding it to be true. Very frustrating and makes me wanna use another app which I don’t really want to do.
Update
by loganxtym3 on 2021/04/30 07:27
I do not like the new update. When I try to view maps that I’ve made, if I touch the screen at all, it will go back to the my places menu. It is extremely annoying and I can’t get anything done. Also, if you try touching the map to show full screen, it just drops a pen. That is yet another issue that is quite agitating. This is not an issue on the android app. Accidentally touching one of the options at the top or the search bar by swiping it up from the top simply isn’t conventional and doesn’t always work.

The best out there
by drblac0 on 2021/04/03 14:14
So I am a truck driver, I use this app to guide me in my travels. It’s a 21th century road atlas. A lot of old school truck driver always cry about this saying it will get you in a bind. I say, it’s a great tool to use and the misuses of it, like tool will get you in a bind. Would one use a hammer to insert a screw? A paper atlas won’t tell you traffic updates, speed traps, items in the road, places to park or eat. At any rate I use this app in Satellite view, I look in great detail the route it’s plotted out for me. I look at streets, roads, everything. You see I am making sure trucks can go down the route. If I see a truck on a street along my route, I know that there is a 80% chance I can. I look to make sure it’s not trying to send me down a ATV trail.....which how accurate Google maps is.....to even have such trails on a map is amazing. In the end it’s a great tool for drivers car or truck. For walkers or bicycles. Just use it SMART. It’s not design to fail you. Only you can do that. Plan your route, look at it, while driving, READ the road signs. Don’t just use this I.E: input destination, and go....follow it blindly. It’s that action....that will get you in a bind.
Alright
by Vampballer on 2021/02/01 13:44
It’s alright. Buggy sometimes even with good signal. When I search along the route it will sometimes not come up with any search results, only for me to pass the very thing I searched for prior in my drive. And no it wasn’t a new business, it had been around for years. Also when I search places, one will say it’s 10 minutes out of the way while the other says only a few. Only to realize that the faster one ended up not being as simple as they said, and that the slower one (+10 minutes) was only slow because for some reason it had me take side roads completely around it before arriving, when I could have simply turned directly into it from the road I was on, making it a quick trip. Not all gas stations show up in searches, it almost seems to favor the expensive gas stations. There’s doesn’t seem to be an algorithm that keeps track of the bad traffic times. It will re rout my whole trip to a significantly slower route if it senses traffic, even if that traffic is close to the end of my trip hours away and will be cleared well before I get to that point. If you’re a contractor that has to go in and out of many neighborhoods, it normally recognizes certain entrances while not recognizing others, so it will take you completely around the neighborhood 30 minutes away to the other entrance when you have just passed a perfectly good entrance that has been around forever. It’s still one of the better gps apps, but still way to buggy to trust it
No longer user friendly
by getdemgators on 2020/11/16 22:02
App used to be okay. There was a time when this app would give you turn by turn navigation, after you made a turn it would indicate the next regardless of distance, so you could anticipate the next set of directions and change lanes accordingly. A few updates ago they removed this feature for who knows why. Initially it wasn&#39;t a big deal because you could simply zoom out quickly to see the next turn yourself. Now they have made it so sensitive if you touch the screen or attempt to move the map to see where to go next it starts spinning wildly and fighting whatever you try and do to see the location you are going towards. For example you are driving straight and are going to make a left turn in 1 mile and the address is only 1.2 miles away. So you think “okay I can zoom out a bit to see if the business is on the left or right side of the road after the turn” WRONG if you try to slide the map further to see where to go it will start orienting itself in opposition of what you are trying to do. Zoom in, zoom out, and flip your always North facing settings for no apparent reason. Stop messing with the apps fundamental settings you are going to be responsible for accidents, erratic lane changes, missed exits off the freeway, etc. It is ridiculous and absolutely irresponsible to make such drastic changes in an apps basic functions that people need to use daily.
BACKOUT or Put a FIX IN for buggy update..
by Dmb5381 on 2021/01/15 05:36
Love this map app.. especially being able to share my location real-time with other people. Found this hidden gem feature (for me at least)traveling from IL to FL. Kept ppl I formed without a lot of texts or phone calls. 👍 That said... based on my interaction with the app a recent release royally screwed up city navigation where I’m at near Fort Meyers FL. I hope the update I just installed corrects the issues and madness this app has caused me the last few days bc I don’t know this city from Adam. The app has been literally unusable for 2-3 days navigating the area. So bad the audio told me to go south when I needed to go due north. I looked at the screen and the satellite image was correct on current location and route to intended location. I couldn’t get the audio to toggle on at all. Even after reboot of my iPhone 10. That’s when had no choice but exit your app and use map app plan B. IN SUMMARY, google developers please don’t make me find a new “everyday use” map app so I can rely on it to tell me the correct information in this city. If you haven’t already,, backout, research issues if you aren’t aware, or push an emergency update with fixes to correct things. Thank you 😕
Worse over time
by sarwalmac on 2019/06/08 05:16
Let’s get one thing straight: I love google. I use Google Chrome over safari, Google Calendar over the one that comes with iPhone, and for a long time, I used Google Maps over Apple Maps. Google Maps a year ago was amazing. It always knew right where I was, the voice notifications were brief and prompt, and the app overall was just easy to use. Fast forward to today. Maps only communicates in NSEW directions “Head East” (Who knows that?), the voice notification system is mediocre at best, and to say that Google Maps is glitchy is an understatement. I just went to a new city and drove my car around, and more often than not I was slinging my car across four lanes of traffic trying to make an exit that Google didn’t let me know I needed to take, or saying that I was on the wrong side of the road, going the wrong way or off the road entirely into the bushes (all the while I had at least 3 bars of LTE on Verizon. Coverage and carrier were not the issue). That was the final straw. This app that used to be more helpful was now potentially putting my life (and the life of my grandmother and friend) at risk. I still refuse to use Apple Maps, and have joined Waze. If the glitches can be fixed I may use again, but overall I am very disappointed!
Best Mapping App Available
by kluke3 on 2019/01/19 18:58
I’ve been using Google Maps for many years and have seen it evolve into a terrific app. that I simply couldn’t do without. I have a very poor sense of direction and this app. allows me to get around the big city I live in. The most recent update now includes the speed limit of the road you’re traveling on. This was the only thing I liked on Apple maps, now Google has it too. I live in a big city and so far the Google speed has matched the posted speed and even changed when I cross over an intersection, then the speed limit changes. If you don’t like the speed limit feature, it can be turned off in the settings / navigation screen of the app. Offline maps are an absolute life saver for instanced where you travel to areas where cell signals are intermittent or weak. They are easy to setup and remove. So far, on the iPhone I have not had a single issue with this app., unlike the dreaded Apple maps that to this day, doesn’t always give me the proper directions, and takes too long to figure out when I veer off the path. Google maps, responds instantly, and reroutes you eliminating a lot of stress. In a case where you find an error in routing, if it’s reported to google, they will listen to you and fix it. Be patient though as they have to verify it, before they change it. They have a feature within the app that should be turned on by default, where you shake the phone with the app. open, the the feedback screen pops up.
Routes are NO LONGER accurate!!
by Nwanyioma on 2020/11/15 16:02
I have been using google maps for 5+ years and I love it because it’s very functional. However, as of this last update, the routes have been OFF. I drive to the Bronx from NJ everyday for work, which is about a 30 mile trip one way. I keep the app open with my route entered in case there is an accident and I need to quickly divert. There are tolls on my route, but I have the settings on “avoid tolls”, so I only pay for the GWB bridge or HT tolls vs the parkway/freeway tolls if that makes sense. Normally, my route is about 30-32 miles depending on which route I choose. After this last update, my routes (with the same settings) are now 66 miles or 77 miles to work. WHAT? WHY? The route suggests I drive to Albany or Fishkill (upstate NY) just to get to the Bronx. Any one who lives in tristate knows this is not correct. I toggled my “avoid tolls” off and the routes were back to 30 miles, however, it directs me to drive through the parkway tolls, which I don’t want to pay nor need to. Everything was fine until this last update. Now I am using WAZE because this app is unreliable. With “avoid tolls” turned on with WAZE, my normal route is back. Google maps has been VERY GLITCHY lately. Until it can be fixed, I’m sticking with the WAZE app.
Orientation determined is often inaccurate.
by LoyalPinnerButFrustrated on 2021/01/30 05:01
I really want to feel secure to continue using this app as I am more familiar with it than any other navigation app, but it needs help - especially recently. The last few months it has been increasingly inaccurate when determining &amp; showing my orientation and specific location on the map, especially in the beginning of the navigation, and therefore I often either (1) miss an exit (though sometimes that&#39;s due to a &#34;lag&#34; before the instruction is made - which is another problem), (2) I&#39;ll turn the wrong way when I follow the &#34;turn right&#34; or &#34;turn left&#34; directions spoken, or (3) I&#39;m lead along the correct road but in the opposite direction of what&#39;s needed, thus resulting in a u-turn or other kind of detour. Sometimes u-turns are accessible and no big deal, but in some areas they are not accessible for long stretches, therefore creating a substantial detour in my trip. Idk if this is just a connectivity glitch or what, but these instances are happening for me more frequently and consistently in recent months than I have ever experienced before, so I don&#39;t think my specific location of reception is the issue. Please, please correct these issues.
Not very good or accurate
by Royal Montgomery on 2019/07/15 17:20
Google Maps is helpful, probably, when one is driving. It&#39;s not helpful for someone who has to take transit or walk. Transit often has changes/transfers - there are no actual walking directions available that are helpful. If you&#39;re walking the wrong way, the app doesn&#39;t stop you, just tells you to walk to {location}. Also, some bus stops are very near/across the street from one another and Google Maps has a hard time pinpointing that. That&#39;s the difference between going the wrong way in a strange place or arriving at your destination. I commute to work but Google Maps only shows one route instead of any route, no matter how I change the settings, so I never know when the bus comes. I know when the trolley comes, but it only runs twice an hour when I am out of work and being able to see any kind of alternate route would be nice. I&#39;ve also noticed that we have a trolley line that runs all the way to South Hills Village, but Google Maps just tells you to get off the stop before that and walk for sixteen minutes. I know better, but a person new to the area may not. I just don&#39;t find it very helpful as someone who doesn&#39;t drive.
Better than iOS Maps
by susie107 on 2017/11/13 12:28
I guess I didn&#39;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&#39;s map made me almost lose my mind- &#34;Turn right then turn right! Go southwest then immediately go north then turn right! Turn left then turn right!&#34; 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&#39;s accurate. 4 stars because it turns me sideways sometimes and did have me turn right off of an exit just to make an immediate u-turn when it should have just told me to turn left from the jump. Still- it gets me there which is what I ultimately care about.
Almost perfect (almost)
by Gregory Lerner on 2018/01/23 06:30
For the vast majority of usage, this app has been flawless. The traffic is accurate, the routing is good, and the user interface is simple and easy to use. However, I have found some things to be quite annoying. For one, I have found that sometimes when I am in the far left lane on the highway, the app will think I am on the wrong side of the road causing it to constantly reroute me (this mostly happens in HOV lanes and high speed ezpass lanes). Another issue is that if I purposely choose a slower route because it is fewer miles the app will constantly tell me it found a faster route (I know there is a faster way, but I purposefully chose the longer timed route!) this is very frustrating, and on my last 2 hour drive it told me 5 times that there was a faster way and I had to take my hand off the wheel to cancel the change. Finally, my last complaint is that there aren&#39;t more alternate routes given. I’m lucky if the app gives me 3 options, whereas online you can drag the route to any road and it will find a route. Other than these issues though, the app is very well implemented.
Only sometimes shows the saved locations on my phone
by KarenD345 on 2017/12/05 16:57
I wrote a review a while back that the app no longer showed saved locations making it cumbersome to go to ‘home’ or ‘work’ since those saved locations do not show up in ‘recent searches’. I am very impressed that google responded to my review and fixed the issue. Unfortunately, the fix is not entirely 100% and the app now is rather temperamental about whether or not it shows the stored locations. It seems that if you still have a route displayed and then want to change it, the app won’t show stored locations but when you start from the map/satellite image of your current location, it will. Previous review: Used to work beautifully for the daily commute from/to work/home because of real-time traffic. Now, however, when picking a destination it only shows recent searches and not saved locations like home or work. It’s irritating and defeats the purpose of having stored locations. Yes, I do know the usual way home but the whole purpose of using google maps is to know the best route given the current traffic situation
So frustrating
by Ava stanley on 2018/04/03 16:16
This is a great map, it will show you where everything is, but’s it’s impossible to use on trips or custom maps. If you’re looking for directions without a custom map and for only one destination, this map is for you. If you create your own maps, need to look up multiple destinations, or are on a trip, it’s near impossible. First of all, I had my mom send me the link to our custom map. It send to my gmail, no problem. Then I’d click on the map, and it either wouldn’t load, or take me to Safari. The Safari view would show the map, but decline to let you get directions unless you signed in. Okay. I signed in. Well, it took my back to my home address, and sent me on a infinite loop, going from clicking the link in my email, getting sent to safari, logging in, and losing the map. I had to redownload the app four times before it worked. Second of all, the map legend isn’t interactive. I’m going to new york, and spent six hours working on a custom map, with a pin for every single place I wanted to go. i downloaded the app, only to find that in the map legend, you can’t click on individual icons, forcing you to leave the map legend, and click on every single icon until it pops up. Very dissapointed.
One of the best navigation apps, but isn’t as great as some others
by Patrick7015 on 2019/12/08 04:24
Google Maps is without question one of the most, if not the most popular navigation app. It’s worked decent for me, why, you may ask, am I saying only decent? Well, here’s why. First of all, I use Apple Maps as well, and that app will usually give me more convenient directions/routes to certain places. For instance, if I’m going to the mall and I put it into Apple Maps, it will send me the route that I’d normally take anyway. However, this is not the case with Google Maps. It will usually take me routes that rarely anyone would take to get to said destination, and I’ve found that I would arrive a few minutes later than I would have if I had taken the route I normally take. It also will sometimes glitch while I’m driving and tell me to turn at the very last second, causing me to either slam my brakes or completely miss the turn. This is very frustrating, especially on the thruway. Both of the issues I’ve talked about seem very fixable, and I hope they eventually get fixed and fast because a lot of people use this app and rely on it to get them places every day.
An annoying necessity
by Ninjainthenight on 2019/07/05 23:26
I have used this app for years as I am a courier and the option to put multiple stops is amazing! However within really the last year, development has gotten messy and far too often I see new features just tossed into this app without little thought about them being annoyances to the everyday user. Like a month or so ago you would hit go and instead of automatically starting your route it would proceed to tell you how the traffic patterns are normally and how it is now....thanks I could care less and I don’t need the extra step. Now there’s a bug where you hit star over and over and nothing happens so you need to slide that bar up which then shows you the traffic pattern times (really wanna shove that stupid feature down our throats huh google?) and then hit start. And now it seems to have issues finding the most common of cities saying it can’t find a way there. Best thing I can recommend is wait it out and once google has fixed all the bugs and things seem stable, shut off the auto updates for this app. They tinker with it way too much and you never know what the next problem is gonna be.
Took me to the middle of nowhere 🤬
by Ginjeet on 2018/11/07 19:28
Let me start out by saying I hate google maps. Recently I had to go to a meeting out of town, almost 3 hrs. away. When it said I had arrived I was at a barn out in the middle of nowhere. I’m thinking that maybe I’m 10-15 minutes away and when I put it back in it tells me I’m over an hour away 🤬. It had taken me in the total opposite direction. Someone said maybe it said turn right and you turned left, but no it didn’t do that and if that had been the case and I turned the wrong way it would have rerouted me back to where I needed to be. Yes I had the correct address in. If this had been winter and snowy it could have been deadly. Another time I was going to a meeting somewhere else and that was a little over 3 hours away. I knew most of the way, it was just going into the area where I had to get on the freeway that I wanted the help with but had it on from when I left my home so I didn’t have to mess with it while driving. It kept trying to detour me off my route to what it thought was the fastest way even tho that wasn’t the way I wanted or was going. The so called fastest route had a lot of switch back turns. I wanted the straight shot. It was only 25 minutes difference. IF I CHOOSE A ROUTE OVER A DIFFERENT ROUTE I HAVE A REASON. DON’T REROUTE ME!!!
Updates are not necessarily improvements
by Peej47 on 2020/03/06 18:27
Before your last couple of updates, I would have rated this app at 5 stars, but the last update has sent me looking for a new map app. Google maps used to be my go-to navigation app, but no longer. Markings for roads/highways are so pale now that they’re almost unseeable. Road names don’t appear until you’ve zoomed in so far that you can’t see their relation to other roads in the area. Before the last update, you could look at the U.S. or state map and at least see Interstate highway markings...no more. Once you move on to ‘directions’, the roads on your route are highlighted but you can’t see names of surrounding roads unless you zoom in to a point that makes looking irrelevant. I could go on and on. Your updates have weakened the usefulness of your app. Using Google maps is no longer helpful...it’s frustrating. Wish we could ‘opt out’ of updates or at least choose the version that works best for us. I miss the ease of use and effective markings of previous versions...hope another app has incorporated features you have discarded. I appreciate the years that you helped me in my travels, but I’ll be looking for help elsewhere now. Thanks for the memories....
Wish they would add weather
by manufeng22 on 2019/06/01 12:21
I love the feature that allows you to search along the route for different key words!! What would really make it awesome though would be if I could see what the weather would be along the route assuming that travel rate is kept constant. As extra brownie points, if they could add the ability to easily avoid weather by altering travel such as stopping to take a break to allow a storm to get ahead of you or possibly taking a different road. Showing the impact on travel would based on the decision could be similar to the way the traffic option works such as: “bad weather ahead, minimize contact with storm by taking a 10 minute break or taking a different route. Impact would result in a 20 minute delay. Would you like to take this alternate route?” If they could add the ability to set a speed alert, that would be amazing! For example, ability to alert driver when traveling at speed which is greater than 11 MPH over speed limit. Another helpful option relating to speed would be one that alerts the driver if the current speed limit is changing ahead and when it actually changes.
It’s still the best....except
by Joker5456 on 2019/01/12 19:49
I’ve been using Google maps since it first came out and it’s been great, except for a couple minor issues. I don’t use it for turn-by-turn navigation, I use it to estimate my travel time based on current traffic conditions and to find an address. It does those tasks fairly well, except.... On my phone’s tiny screen I cannot read the street names. Thankfully there is a zoom feature....except...and this makes the app absolutely useless....the street names do not get bigger. Do the programmers not understand thats why I want to zoom in? To not only see the tiny streets but to enlarge the tiny street names? Another issue I have is after it plots your routing, it overwrites the street names with the blue route highlighting. To read the street names you have to switch between the text route and the map route. There are several other issues I have but the last I’ll discuss here is the inability to forecast the route like you can in the desktop version. I have to switch to my laptop if I want to know what time I have to leave in order to arrive at a certain time, but many times I don’t have my laptop with me.
Love the new update
by Dissatisfied user 8897 on 2018/07/30 11:10
Used to have to click 2 or 3 buttons to start a route, now simply load the address, click start and BAM you&#39;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 &#34;get directions to -- in google maps&#34;. Clicking on that loads maps, but it always says &#34;can&#39;t find a way there&#34;. 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 &#34;open in google maps&#34; instead of the native apple maps would be great. —————UPDATE————— There is a bug where when you save a location to one of your lists, then add a custom label, it doesn’t save the custom label. Clicking on the saved location doesn’t show any label added. Searching for the label works, but it very inconvenient. I add custom labels to places I go, and look back through the maps later.
Worse and discriminatory
by cheeryinmay on 2019/06/27 18:45
I’m a Chinese native living in the US and I keep my iOS in Chinese. First, the app won’t let you choose which language to use. Second, it shows reviews of a place in Chinese first. For famous places like the MET museum in NYC, there are hundreds or thousands reviews in Chinese and I cannot see any reviews from people of different backgrounds unless I scroll for ten minutes, I guess. I actually feel somewhat discriminated by this sorting of reviews. Showing the most helpful reviews (helpfulness rated by other reviewers) is a much fair and meaningful way. Third, the Google Translation is imbedded no matter people complain about it. They seemed to stop translating English into Chinese now but it continues to “translate” Traditional Chinese to Simplified Chinese (my iOS language), which is absolutely unnecessary (99.9% Chinese speakers can recognize both ways of writing). Even worse is that in the last version I found some reviews are shown with the tags “translated” and “original” but there isn’t any content after “translated”; basically, it didn’t “translate” but has those tags, which wastes space that I only see “translated” and a space line before clicking the review to expand it. Google, stay simple! We don’t want Your opinion and interference.
Fix zoom out/in on lists
by Flivin on 2018/09/17 04:50
Hi! I love the list feature in google maps, but I have one issue. I use the built-in Want to Go green marker on places, but I also have my own list that I call Actively Want to Go. Anyway, when I click my places and look exclusively at this list I’ve made, I like to zoom in on a neighborhood and click a place to get more info on it. Once I’ve read the info (hours, etc), I usually exit out of the place-specific info and want to see what else is in that neighborhood that’s on my list. Once I ex out of a restaurant’s info, the view zooms out completely and I have to zoom back in and find where I was. This is super annoying! Would really appreciate a fix! This is especially annoying bc sometimes a list I’ve made spans multiple cities in the US, and so once I zoom in and read a New York cafe’s hours and other info, I exit and then it zooms out and gives me a view of the whole continental US. This is super annoying! Pls fix, Google 💜 the only fix right now on my end is to avoid making lists that span multiple cities to avoid a large zoom out, but I think this is something y’all can fix easily
I was in love.
by Yadira1738 on 2018/01/03 01:19
I fell in love with Google Maps maybe about 7 years ago. It’s the reason I was one of the quickest pizza delivery drivers and why I’m always the one navigating family trips. I’ve been in Europe for 3 months now, and I rely desperately on my saved locations when exploring new countries. It was working beautifully until about 2 weeks ago (I assume with this new update), and when I was in London last week I was struggling to hit all the places I planned on because the map was refusing to show my saved places (my data is slow so I rely on Google Maps). I’m taking my last trip tomorrow and I don’t want to say that Google Maps is going to ruin the trip - but it definitely won’t make my trip any easier (like it used to). This is coming from a Google Maps enthusiast that annoys all her friends when she worships it (and bashes all other “Maps”). Please Google, fix this problem. I’m sure you won’t be able to for my trip tomorrow, but if my comment helps someone else, then AWESOME! And to the Google Team, I love you. Really. Thank you. May you get all the donuts you deserve.
The Fall: Google Maps’ Descent into Chaos
by AnEmily7 on 2019/07/23 03:21
Google maps has always been quite reliable in the past, but over the last few weeks it has been terrible about sending us the best route to avoid traffic. I’m currently stuck in a traffic jam caused by 4 accidents. There was an easy route to avoid this jam completely, but the Google Maps App didn’t tell us there was a jam until we were already stuck in it, high on a bridge to switch freeways. This jam has clearly been building up for a considerable period before we got the the place where we could have avoided it, but the app gave us no advance warning. Then, when we were irrevocably stuck, it suddenly had information about all the accidents and the extent of the traffic blockage. This seems a pretty unacceptable lapse in providing critical information about routes and traffic flow. Additionally, while it often chooses a logical route, there are times that it sends us in literal circles, ever farther from what is clearly the most practical path to our destination. This too is a recent failing. I don’t know the cause of Google Maps’ recent lapse in quality, but I hope it is rectified soon so that I don’t have to find a new map service.
The worst feature
by drhiggs on 2018/04/12 19:26
Google maps has recently added probably the worst feature you could possibly imagine to an map app. If you live in a dense urban area like me (I live in Atlanta). The absolute last thing I want my map app to do when I&#39;m getting close to my destination is to assume I know the rest of the way and begin to zoom out and rotate to look aesthetically cool or something. I&#39;m not there yet! In many cases I&#39;ve never been to this store/restaurant/venue and when 100s of places are in only a couple blocks of each other I don&#39;t need my map app to zoom out and rotate to look cool when I&#39;m still trying to figure out where I&#39;m going! I have to try to rotate my head to follow the screen all while I&#39;m still driving. I have missed my location many times because of this completely unhelpful feature. This may be fine in rural areas, but this is a terrible design flaw for highly dense cities. It&#39;s dangerous and serves no constructive purpose, and is just a shallow attempt to look fancy for an absolutely zero functional or helpful propose. Wait till I am parked and not moving or have somehow indicated that I gave arrived.
Recent update
by okwellisethisnamethen on 2020/10/29 13:08
I am an avid user of this app as I drive a company vehicle daily for the past 10 years, this past week I’ve noticed some issues. When getting close to my destination I usually scroll forward to determine which way to go to park on the right side of the street, but as of this past week this function has not worked. Instead it will turn around to the opposite direction, that being said I now have to use two fingers to guide the map to make that happen oppose to one finger. Second thing I’ve noticed is that once entering a destination and seeing the over view I sometimes zoom in at the destination for specifics, instead of it zooming with a double tap and drag it zooms to a random location along the route. I’m guessing these are new bugs that come with a new upgrade, hopefully these changes weren’t intentional because I find using gmaps to be way better than Apple Maps but if this remains Apple Maps has the same feature that I’m used having on gmaps and I’ll have to stick to what’s convenient for its intended purpose. Please fix this ap maps stinks I think, I should check that last update they put out a while ago.....
Navigation slow of just plain stops in iOS12
by Zildjiancat on 2018/10/31 20:53
Help! Since updating my iPhone to iOS12, google maps is practically useless for me. The lag in navigation is unbelievable, if it works at all. Since updating, the voice directs me where to go AFTER I’ve passed the turn/street/place. She’s constantly telling me to make u-turns. And to make them where there is no place to make them. I often drive right past my destination and she hasn’t even gotten to the street I’m on. And more often than not, Google Siri stops providing voice direction mid-way through a journey, instead making me have to look away from the road to see where the next turn will be. Very dangerous. I have preferred google maps to Apple’s version all along. Sadly, that may soon change for me if google maps continues its glitchy ways. If there’s a fix, please let me know!!! Also - that “explore the neighborhood” thing that immediately pops up and covers 60% of the map screen when I need to get directions is annoying, as it’s an ad gimmick that forces the user to do an extra step (swipe it away) before navigating. Get that thing out of there! If I’m looking for directions to somewhere else, I’m not gonna explore anything where I already am, as I’m LEAVING the area. Sheesh!
Great...when it works
by Lightly Salted on 2018/04/28 13:28
Google has a amazing knack for to combining sheer brilliance with mind-numbing incompetence, and this app has plenty of both. I use it from time to time because it does one thing extremely well, routing. Especially in traffic I find the routing to be the best and most reliable there is. Estimates of traffic times are very good, and alternate route selection tends to be quite solid and useful. No for the bad part. For whatever reason, Google (bless their hearts) cannot seem to write a functioning app. Through numerous iterations Google Maps has been plagued with very serious, frequent bugs of the types that will leave you stranded. The current version of the app freezes, loses track of your current location, refuses to connect to the internet for absolutely no reason, and is just downright flakey. Previous versions have had even more serious problems. (Some will recall the version that refused to navigate from the current location, rendering the app useless for navigation.) So try Google Maps for routing, but don’t rely on it for your sole source of navigation because it will leave you stranded. At least until Google learns how to write more reliable apps.
Great Apple Maps Replacement in CarPlay...Except:
by ggrudziak on 2018/09/25 04:43
Everything in Google Maps is excellent. Now with iOS 12 adding support for third-party navigation maps in CarPlay, we’re now able to use Google Maps and Waze in CarPlay. However, there are two main issues. One, there’s no speed limit. This is a necessity and it’s kind of inexcusable that Google Maps doesn’t have this feature while Apple Maps and Waze (also from Google) do. Two, the voice feature doesn’t work at all in CarPlay. All the proper permissions have been allowed and all that happens when you press the microphone icon on the car screen in Google Maps is that you get the sound and the visual but nothing else. It sometimes says “No internet connection” and cancels, but mostly it hangs there. What’s happening is that it’s hanging there listening but it’s not receiving audio from the car’s microphones. I know that works because if you press the voice button on the steering wheel and use Siri, she hears and responds fine. Must be fixed to allow voice control or add Siri support.
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 you need to read this.
by Kariidee on 2019/01/19 08:22
I’ve been using google maps since forever! I cannot give them a bad review. Yeah, there may be and continue to be little details that many people may want to change and so forth but I consider it to be a great gps. Anyways I’m contacting google through the App Store to let you guys know that while I’ve been using google maps for work to complete my deliveries. I’ve noticed that the many places I go to make these deliveries the gps points me out to the incorrect locations most of the time. I usually have to go and find the addresses blindly until I can locate my customers location. I am not sure if you’ve sent out a driver to Lauderdale Lakes, Florida to update the street views and new developments. But there are many new buildings and older buildings standing today that google maps hasn’t updated on. Hopefully, google maps can update this soon enough. A lot of changes are occurring in this side of town.
Maps counties to have offline issues
by sporacer on 2020/10/21 00:42
For the last few months even after reinstalling the app resetting my device network settings ect it still continues to think I’m offline and changes the end address to a “general area”. I deliver for Grubhub and when this happens maps will take me to completely wrong locations even after a few minutes when it decides to come back online airplane mode off and on will sometimes correct the issue but I still have to restart directions repeatedly and recently road work and construction has caused maps to try and send me completely out of the way of my destination by miles not blocks. I still prefer Google over Apple Maps or Wayze but if this issue continues i will just uninstall the app like I did 4 years ago when google maps was having similar issues with addresses and off/online maps and traffic. *would be awesome if like in Apple Maps google indicated stop signs and traffic lights. Also a lot of speed limit data is incorrect the other day the last sign I had seen while traveling down a road was 35 but google showed 50mph
DO NOT update your Google Maps app until they fix insane and dangerous bugs.
by what be all this noise on 2020/09/14 04:02
The last couple weeks, it has been: verbally telling me to turn left while visually displaying a right turn, and vice-versa; unable to renavigate/redirect until 2+ minutes into your new routes, thus sending you in circles, wrong directions, off incorrect exits; routing me 2-10+ miles off the route it said 1 minute ago, and subsequently adding 10min-1hr to my drive time (I took what should have been a 3-hour road trip three days ago, and by constantly changing my directions, instructions, etc it ultimately added well over 1hr to my travel time); telling me to make impossible or illegal U-Turns as well as multiple u-turns multiple times back and forth; telling me there will be stand-still traffic where there is none, and vice-versa; sending me on to roads one street before or after the correct road, including telling me to turn into a cemetery 3 times in a row when I was trying to get to an auto parts store with a completely different address than the cemetery; no longer functioning or connecting in areas where for years, up until a couple weeks ago, it had no trouble connecting; and worst of all, directing me to go into oncoming traffic.
Google’s political agenda shows
by Stangster1 on 2019/11/03 05:56
What is with Google Maps and the continuous diminishing of the state lines??? It is getting harder and harder to tell where the state lines are, because Google is making the lines so faint - especially when zoomed in. Just Google doing its part to influence the masses to incorrectly see our precious nation merely as one mass democracy ruled by the popular vote - and to diminish the historic republic our nation was so wisely established as and the precious electoral college that our nation has always had. Hope I’m wrong, but is Google seemingly doing its part to promote the notion that the United States is a democracy instead of the republic that it is? Actual democracy is like two wolves and a little lamb deciding on what’s for dinner. A republic allows for the lamb to have a chance to save itself from the will of the two wolves. Liberty is a well armed lamb, to protect itself from the tyranny of the masses and the tyranny of the popular vote, where 50% plus one vote can simply run over and force its will on the 50% less one vote populace. The electoral college is one more institution put into place by our founding fathers to try to protect the voices of the smaller states; to prevent California and New York from imposing their will on the smaller states.
Need to disable auto-rerouting
by sarcasm central on 2019/02/05 20:22
I’ve been using Google Maps for a long time and overall I’m satisfied with it. However, there are two things that I’d like to see implemented: 1) Allow the user to select alternate routes when in offline mode. When in online mode, I can select a route I’m most comfortable with and not being able to do this in offline mode is annoying. I don’t want to be limited to the “fastest” route. 2) Allow the user to disable the auto-rerouting option without having to use the app in offline mode. There are many times when I’m not interested in saving 5 minutes by taking an unfamiliar route, but I still want to see current traffic and ETA. Having to fight with the app and manually hit “decline” to a route change is annoying and distracting. There is no reason why the app should need physical interaction from a user while they are focused on driving. Maybe allow the user to switch the default action to “decline” instead of “accept,” and add the ability to choose via voice control?
Stop trying to be Waze
by GG245777543236 on 2018/12/12 22:04
I have Google maps, Waze and the Apple maps apps on my phone because a perfect map app doesn’t exist and I like/dislike all 3 for different reasons. We all know Waze tries to dodge traffic even if that means taking you 10 miles out to a roundabout way up a mountain and/or through the underbelly of a city you never knew existed. This can be refreshing or annoying depending on the situation.... whereas Google maps was more straight forward. Lately though Google seems to have adopted this Waze strategy of zig zagging me through neighborhoods to get 8 miles when an arterial road or highway IS available and NOT too backed up with traffic. Recently I had my boss with me for a ride along and I seriously think he thought I was completely stupid due to the funky ways we were going everywhere which made zero sense yet this was all the Google maps navigation. Honestly it was embarrassing. Please add a feature so we can choose if we want the roundabout or straight forward route rather than forcing us on these scribble doodles across Town which inevitably involve 4-5 left turns onto 5 lane roads with a 60 mph speed limit and not traffic light in sight. The KISS philosophy would serve you well here
Google Maps, I love you, but...
by peemree on 2018/01/31 22:35
By far one of my most frequently used, long-running apps. And now I live in NYC so have become obsessed with the new feature allowing us to label places as “want to go”, etc. My only complaint with Google Maps is its lag time in catching up to my location. It can sometimes take 5, 10+ minutes for the app to update my location from when previously used. My one *request* is that the app have more options to customize the pins! Example: when creating a new list, it would be helpful if there were multiple colors to choose from, rather than just having the baby blue option. This would help to distinguish between categories when looking at the map alone (rather than having to go and search through the lists). Maybe even allow for a custom-made option, such as using an emoji as a category instead of a color at all? This would be a total game changer and so improve my use of the app when searching for specific cuisines, unique features, etc.!
My review
by Little Blind Girl on 2019/05/29 03:10
I like this app. I don&#39;t drive, so if you do, can&#39;t help ya. But, I can tell you the app is wonderful at finding stuff in the area. 5 out of 5. Problems: I am a blind user and your app is almost perfect. One problem is on the For You tab, which I would love to use, but it wants me to select an area I care about on a map, which I can&#39;t do by any means. The second problem, most likely having nothing to do with me being blind, is when I have to press back to my location in order for it to measure distance correctly. Suggestions: I have two suggestions that would help me and possibly some others. The first one is for it to tell you the bus stop numbers. The second one is a notification you could turn on to tell you that your stop on the bus is getting close. This would be useful because not all the buses have the speaker system and even if I ask the driver to tell me a little heads up would be nice. Over all, this app is very wonderful.
Changes my destination
by dragonkoh on 2018/01/31 16:16
I used to have no issues with this but lately it has been changing my destination with no notification and taking me to the wrong spot. This is happening 100% of the time now and so I can’t rely on it anymore because it takes me to a random location each time. Over the past week it has caused me to drive an extra 50 miles and wasted several hours of my time. Not sure what they did to this last update but I’ll be finding an alternative now. EDIT IN RESPONSE: Typically I’d be navigating based on latitude/longtitude coordinates but it also happened when setting a destination based on address. I also found that it tended to send me back to certain locations repeated times as long as they were within a mile or so of the actual destination. I have no saved addresses so that wouldn’t have been the cause. EDIT 1/31: Yes, I’d be using Safari and a link that opened Google Maps with the coordinates prefilled. The destination would always be accurate for a few minutes but the route would silently change on me and point me to somewhere totally different, sometimes up to a mile away in a completely different direction nowhere close to the original destination.
GLITCHES!!!!!
by ehfyoutube on 2020/06/26 08:50
My whole job is driving around the north eastern sector of the United States and Canada. Google maps tries to drive me around in giant circles when there is any Road construction, it takes me the long way all the time, not to mention it&#39;ll switch the address on me, all on its own, making me late for my jobs and causing me a lot of gas money and mileage. Googles monopoly is too big to fail, and so big that there&#39;s no way for me to communicate with them to tell them what their product is doing to me and my livelihood. Too many major glitches to post, but one of my favorites is when the navigation voice will incessantly keep asking you if you would like to take a alternate route to save three minutes, and no matter how many times you hit the no thanks button, the voice will immediately keep repeating itself over and over and over asking you over and over and over if you would like to save three minutes. That&#39;s not a choice, when it keeps repeating itself and asking to the point of making your driving experience extremely dangerous and distracting. If any of you computer scientists are listening, please at least fix this last glitch it should be a relatively simple fix
Better than sliced bread
by News van on 2018/08/11 23:26
It gives you such detail that is amazing, one of the best apps I have on my iPad I not only use it to find places I need to be in it kills me a time estimated time that you will arrive, very handy. And the turn by turn directions outstanding I don’t know why you would need To use any other app for Finding a destination . Used to be hard to kind of find places that’s in the past we get to the right place the first time with the outstanding turn by turn directions. The only thing it lacks is to be able to see real traffic, I did one time was able to see real traffic cars that passed me in the cars that passed in real time because it only was one time I cannot get that optional more. What happened Google maps. I would recommend this app to my grandmother it sure does a good job thank you very much Sincerely yours Never get lost
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.

I’m writing about my current property manager Dawn Becker at American Homes 4 Rent. She has only been our property manager for a short time of the 4 1/2 years that I have been renting the property; but, she has been an absolute GODSEND! In the brief time that I have gotten to work with her she has tried in every way possible to help my family in our rental with any issue that has come up. Dawn has been amazing at going to bat for us with dire maintenance concerns that could not wait; however, without her help they would have waited and our family would have suffered. Dawn shows good communication, she is a team player, she shows the ability to work well with others in any situation as well as dealing with changes easily, she is very knowledgeable in every area that I’ve ever ask her about and if she ever didn’t know the answer she always got tight back to me. In my opinion, AH4R should train every property manager to be as efficient, professional, adequate and kind as Dawn Becker!
It’s google trash
by jdhyndjjgr on 2020/04/10 03:10
Just like everything else with google things keep going downhill (especially the search engine). Maps gets worse with every update. Worst is it never keeps up with movements and distance despite any change to any settings that google recommends it stays about 10-15 seconds behind. I ride a motorcycle and there is no way with the gloves I have to touch the screen. It detects traffic and sends me down a different route that takes twice as long and I can’t cancel it. When planning trips where I know the route I want to take and I set it to that yet googles mighty reroute thinks it can’t shave a minute off by sending me down side streets. By thinking it can save that one minute I end up in rural side streets and distant loops that end up taking longer. Over maps is terrible. Lately I’ve had to memorize the route before hand and keep the app off while traveling, defeating the point of GPS maps. If they fixed the app so it kept up with movement and basic direction that would be a good start. Then add options like “never change pre-planned route” and and option to not take traffic into account as much for motorcycles that lane split. Just give people a few more settings
Masterpiece
by Fuzzboy7 on 2020/04/25 15:53
Google 5.41 is a masterpiece. The display is gorgeous, the way you rate your trip at the end is fantastic, and it is still ole reliable when it comes to getting you where you want to go. Google is adding new places to its map services faster than ever and provides many ways to get there. The complaint list I have is small: Some old roads that are no longer available are still being routed through google maps. Occasionally the speed limits do not match either and it would be great to customize what displays you would like to have on at all times such as speed limit vs. your current speed. Also, rarely when you change direction after a stop, it does not pick this up quick enough and can be somewhat confusing for those bad with directions. All in all, Google maps has come a long way and I believe it is well on its way to becoming what we have all been waiting for and please: DO NOT CHANGE THE DISPLAY STYLE.
Warranty Exchange - Incredible Customer Service Experience
by Andrea and Murray on 2020/03/15 20:51
Long story short. Went to Mattress Firm and spoke with Mike Paso about what we thought was a defective mattress (bought back in 2013). He explained the process. We followed the process, and within less than 3 weeks we had a letter from the company giving us full credit (from our initial purchase) to apply to a new mattress. We went back to see Mike and he was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the products in the showroom. After learning a lot and lying on several beds, Mike made our decision a well-informed one. He consulted with another colleague at the store (Catherine- and she was also incredibly helpful) and in no-time our purchase was processed with our mattress refund applied. Thank you Mike for your amazing customer service - especially in today’s world of “go do it yourself” service. You truly made our experience a great one. Thank you also to Mattress Firm for standing behind your products.
Best public transit mapping & predictor
by Sybil.Disobedience on 2018/01/23 12:53
I can’t say if their public transportation mapping and predictions are the best in every major city, but I can attest to the San Francisco Bay Area, which is not very easy to navigate, so let a native save you a lot of trouble. Forget all the other apps because they’re never as accurate nor as intuitive. Google has more resources to notify within seconds of schedule changes, quicker than the respective government agency where the delay may be (ie Muni accidents might not show up for 20 mins on predictions, yet Google Maps will immediately notify you and offer reroute)So no matter where you are traveling from, forget Muni app, or 511, or BART, etc., just coordinate your schedule through Google Maps. I also recommend getting a Clipper Card. Easiest way to keep track of transit passes and if you’re not sure your schedule you can just load cash which is redeemable on all transportation systems (though obviously passes are your best value).

I am an Uber driver and I switch between Google maps which is configured to work with the Uber App and Waze because Google Maps driects me to too many streets that are no longer available from my location. And many other other route issues. It also directs me to make right turns followed dangerous left turns through busy intersections where there are no traffic signals, in situations where if I had travel 1 block further, I would be able to make a right turn and then make the left turn at an intersection with a traffic signal. Too often on freeways it directs to an exit pass the exit directly on to my destination street or close to it, then I have to make at least 2 right turns to get back to the destination, which I already passed on to Freeway. The biggest issue for me is in areas in Los Angeles when I have the option to enter 2 or more freeways with no clear indication of which Freeway I should take to get to the designated exit. Another problem is that the next turn or Freeway exit is not displayed constantly.
Please create feature to save/remember current trips
by trojanaurora on 2019/01/05 19:33
I agree with an earlier reviewer about the sporadic use of ‘landmarks’ in the directions, rather than using only street names. It’s weird and arbitrary. Then it switches between giving directions in feet or fractions of a mile, or sometimes doesn’t give turn directions until it’s too late to safely execute the turn. Sometimes voice directions don’t come at all and I have to look at the phone while driving (!) to see what to do next. Recently, the reminders to leave have not been coming through each time they are requested, which I rely on to plan my trips accordingly. Aggravating! My main frustration with this app is that it erases open directions if I accidentally click out of the app or into it from a Notification, or when I’m editing stops but use the &lt; arrow to back out. I frequently have trips with multiple stops, so losing my entire trip and starting from scratch is INFURIATING. If there was a way to save current trips or retrieve them, that would be so helpful!!!
