How did we ever live BG ( before Google maps)The genius (es) who created Google maps app deserves a bronze statue in every major city. Not only we don’t get lost in a maze of back alleys of large metropolises anymore, now every two bit town has all its dusty streets proudly displayed on every phone, and in full color no less. The excuse “I did not come because I got lost on the way” is now well and truly dead. As are the majorly annoying over the phone directions of “the quickest way to get here “..Version: 5.12

When will you update?I love using this app, as its great to find your way around when you are lost. I recently used it whilst on a holiday in Sydney, good to find where I wanted to go around the city. But I think your photos need updating. I saw on yr site that my area has been done. But the photo used in the house where me and my parents used to live 4yrs ago is still old, as we know longer live there. It shows their cars in the carport, and a letterbox we had taken out four years before we left (we put a new one in). So your photo is about 8yrs old. The google earth one is up to date, so I think you guys need to update yours too. Other than that, everything else is great. If your photos were up to date, I'd give you five starts for sure, as I use this app all the time 👍🏻.Version: 4.38

Excellent, but needs a few more tweaks to be truly exceptionalMaps desperately needs the ability to better manage multiple destinations - give me distances and times for each trip leg, and the ability to plan and save such journeys. Many's the time I've set up five or so destinations, then Maps crashes or closes for whatever reason (often because my phone is trying to do five things at once, but that's the nature of phones these days) and then I have to redo the entire trip again from scratch. Also a live speedometer and overspeed warning would be great, and a reason to ditch my other GPS app (HereWeGo maps). Almost everything else about the app is wonderful..Version: 5.23

Great app but want more features!This is an absolutely great app! I love using it while walking, foot travel, bus and car. Just wish the maps team can add a speedometer and speed limit information when using googlemaps in a car in Auckland New Zealand :).Version: 5.54

A bugWhen I have been using the app lately my screen brightness keeps going really dull and I can’t turn it up! I still give it 5 stars as it’s my favourite navigation app and I think someone jealous out there has created a bug! I feel really gaslit because as soon as I close the app my brightness goes right back up too! So dangerous because I’ve had to pick up my phone several times while driving to see where I’m going!! Hope you guys find the issue!!.Version: 5.56

Please add podcast controlI am definitely giving this a five star review but would ask the coders to please add control of podcasts so that it’s not just music that you’re able to control on the app while driving. To be able to play podcasts, fast forward 15” or rewind 15” etc during a podcast while using this would be perfect as I often listen to podcasts on long drives instead of music, thank you..Version: 5.9

Warranty Exchange - Incredible Customer Service ExperienceLong story short. Went to Mattress Firm and spoke with Mike Paso about what we thought was a defective mattress (bought back in 2013). He explained the process. We followed the process, and within less than 3 weeks we had a letter from the company giving us full credit (from our initial purchase) to apply to a new mattress. We went back to see Mike and he was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the products in the showroom. After learning a lot and lying on several beds, Mike made our decision a well-informed one. He consulted with another colleague at the store (Catherine- and she was also incredibly helpful) and in no-time our purchase was processed with our mattress refund applied. Thank you Mike for your amazing customer service - especially in today’s world of “go do it yourself” service. You truly made our experience a great one. Thank you also to Mattress Firm for standing behind your products..Version: 5.39

Good functionalityI really like google maps, and have for a long time. I like the orange/red showing areas of traffic when I am planning a print but I do find that it underestimates the additional time caused by traffic incidents..Version: 4.54

Who doesn't use GMapsThe best navigational app out. The offline part is now awesome for when I'm of road or camping and the is no reception. Total life saver. Definitely a Must Have for the traveller, camper or new to town person!!!.Version: 4.46

Was Great, Now notThis has been my staple app for many many iPhones, but I’m now deleting it as since IOS 11 and every version of it they’ve updated, this app refuses to work, it will load, then crash to the home screen if I want to do anything other than just look at the startup map of where I am. This has been pretty ongoing for months. Might change this if it ever gets fixed because it’s worked so so well for so long, but now it is in every possible way, unusable..Version: 4.42

Best public transit mapping & predictorI can’t say if their public transportation mapping and predictions are the best in every major city, but I can attest to the San Francisco Bay Area, which is not very easy to navigate, so let a native save you a lot of trouble. Forget all the other apps because they’re never as accurate nor as intuitive. Google has more resources to notify within seconds of schedule changes, quicker than the respective government agency where the delay may be (ie Muni accidents might not show up for 20 mins on predictions, yet Google Maps will immediately notify you and offer reroute)So no matter where you are traveling from, forget Muni app, or 511, or BART, etc., just coordinate your schedule through Google Maps. I also recommend getting a Clipper Card. Easiest way to keep track of transit passes and if you’re not sure your schedule you can just load cash which is redeemable on all transportation systems (though obviously passes are your best value)..Version: 4.43

Kim BI’m writing about my current property manager Dawn Becker at American Homes 4 Rent. She has only been our property manager for a short time of the 4 1/2 years that I have been renting the property; but, she has been an absolute GODSEND! In the brief time that I have gotten to work with her she has tried in every way possible to help my family in our rental with any issue that has come up. Dawn has been amazing at going to bat for us with dire maintenance concerns that could not wait; however, without her help they would have waited and our family would have suffered. Dawn shows good communication, she is a team player, she shows the ability to work well with others in any situation as well as dealing with changes easily, she is very knowledgeable in every area that I’ve ever ask her about and if she ever didn’t know the answer she always got tight back to me. In my opinion, AH4R should train every property manager to be as efficient, professional, adequate and kind as Dawn Becker!.Version: 5.31

Google MapsI use google maps frequently both locally and overseas. What I really like is the fact that is kept up to date with relevant traffic updates, alternate routes when proposed routes are congested I use it on my IPad and in my car vis my IPhone Thanks.Version: 4.53

Great app as always, but....Google has always been king of maps. Much better than Apple maps. Lots of awesome features added over the years, and more recently the addition of 'location sharing'...similar to find my friends. However, this location sharing has a few bugs they need to iron out... 1. It takes AGES to locate someone. Much longer than find my friends. 2. When I force it to refresh the location status of someone, it basically does nothing. 3. It seems it is unable to locate anyone if that other person is using their devices GPS for their own needs (I tried to track my wife's progress as she drove through France last month, and it only seemed to update whilst she had stopped at services...when she was actually driving and using google maps for navigation, it never updated...I had to use fiend my friends instead to see where she was). I'm so pleased google have added this feature as I would prefer to use google vw find my friends...but I need the above bugs to be fixed before I can fully rely on it..Version: 5.16

Google mapsAwesome the way you an locate items as well as venue names. Accuracy could be better as it can compete with more current information such as bus time tables, road works. Perhaps a way of defaulting to the source would be good as an automatic update..Version: 5.51

Lexus CardiffWhat an awesome company, they’ve looked after my Lexus since I purchased it in 2012, it runs as sweet as a nut. I’m impressed every time I visit there, the welcome, the superb attentiveness, and the overall experience of knowing your car is receiving the ultimate in health checks, you even have a video of the servicing. Wow, it makes one feel safe. Yesterday Dave Short looked after me, he made everything easy and smooth, as I’m 73yrs little things are important, the place was spotless and proper distancing was in place, all went seamlessly, so thank you Dave, you’re a star ! I’ll be back for my next service, by the way I fell in love with that gorgeous new Lexus...... I’ll be back when I win the lottery. Xx.Version: 5.43

One of the most useful apps you can download. But ugly app icon...I use this app every single day. Not just for navigation but for finding local services, planning trips in advance, finding hotels and restaurants, Reading reviews, writing reviews and the list goes on. Google Maps is in that small group of apps that are irreplaceable and truly make our lives easier. The only thing I’d change is the app icon itself. Google’s other app icons are so simple and clean. I know Maps is a whole business unit in itself and is a very big deal within Google... but the red pin on a white background would be a confident and understated way to design the icon..Version: 5.9

MY Plan ManagerIf you need assistance with NDIS budgeting, MY Plan Manager is the way to go. Get the app on your phone and you can see exactly where your budget money is going. That’s helpful. Also the reimbursements come through to your account really quickly, 2 days, which is great when you have paid money for a service. They always ring back in a timely manner if you have a question. No question is too difficult for them. I recommend this service..Version: 5.54

Google is people’s companyThere is no other company that serve people truly in the world like Google and Facebook.. My two most favourite companies in the world.. These 2 companies provide so much of free service to the people in the world.. Google maps is amazing service... Google engineers have done an excellent job... Keep it up Google.Version: 5.17

Penalty chargeDear google map I love your app it’s very useful and has helped me almost every day however I have just received a penalty charge for £60 from Manchester City council because I was driving in Manchester City centre as I needed to pick up my Girlfriend from national express bus station on Portland street as I was following the directions from your map not knowing that it’s only for buses not cars , could please update places like that or use a different route for car drivers like me on places like these to avoid the penalty charges , I would like to thank you in advance if you could do that so we do not have to go through the same problem again as I was directed to go through that route ..Version: 5.6

Good. Not as good as before.Traffic data has been a bit glitchy recently - even with a strong 4G signal. Tried refreshing a few times and resorted to using my ‘awful’ Volvo navigation / Apple Maps. Worst pint however, has to be losing the functionality for adding labels - specifically Home and Work. Every time I travel back home or to work, I used to click on the lane and use GMaps for traffic etc - however now it’s lost the labels, I have to manually enter the postcodes - such a faff, most days I don’t bother now. Please fix this. I’m sure it’s apples stupid IOS update that broke it, but it’s core to the UX of GMaps and all the forums are full of complaints..Version: 5.35

Downloads goodIt is good that we can download maps temporarily as this makes navigating so much better and easier.Version: 4.49

Better than MapsWay better than the iOS maps!.Version: 5.68

No street view?Where has street view gone? I can’t get street view anymore when I click on a road, I can only get it by clicking on a location like a restaurant and go from there but that’s not very useful because if I travel to far down the road in street view the screen goes black or is pixelated so you can’t see anything. I guess this is a bug but I would expect an update the same or next day to fix this considering google is 1 of the biggest companies in the world with millions of users daily using google maps. It’s now been a week or more and still no fix. Cmon google.Version: 5.24

Great map, potential to excel!Google maps has changed he world. I don't carry street directory anymore and I have real time update on what is quickest route. Few things you can improve: 1. maps tell you about turns etc too close to turns. It used to be better, but it seems to differ between versions. 2. There Should be an option to show the speed limit. .... few more, if Google want to know, contact me..Version: 4.36.1

Need to disable auto-reroutingI’ve been using Google Maps for a long time and overall I’m satisfied with it. However, there are two things that I’d like to see implemented: 1) Allow the user to select alternate routes when in offline mode. When in online mode, I can select a route I’m most comfortable with and not being able to do this in offline mode is annoying. I don’t want to be limited to the “fastest” route. 2) Allow the user to disable the auto-rerouting option without having to use the app in offline mode. There are many times when I’m not interested in saving 5 minutes by taking an unfamiliar route, but I still want to see current traffic and ETA. Having to fight with the app and manually hit “decline” to a route change is annoying and distracting. There is no reason why the app should need physical interaction from a user while they are focused on driving. Maybe allow the user to switch the default action to “decline” instead of “accept,” and add the ability to choose via voice control?.Version: 5.10

Google maps reviewWould it prefer it if you could attach photo to specific spots rather that established marks. Much like what Panoramio used to be able to do on Google maps. Also google maps won’t accept some place names even though you try to mark a place with its proper name. Can be a bit of a pain that can be. Otherwise its ok..Version: 5.58

Correct your street name for us please.The street I live in is called Moreton Street in Warrnambool Victoria Australia. You have it named as McGinness Way. The street before ours is McGinness Way. It is so confusing when trying to tell people our address They google it and they always go to the wrong street. What is worse, the mail or courier gets it wrong as well and we don’t end up getting our parcels. I use google maps al the time and enjoy your app, but this is so frustrating. Please, please fix this for us..Version: 5.10

Great Apple Maps Replacement in CarPlay...Except:Everything in Google Maps is excellent. Now with iOS 12 adding support for third-party navigation maps in CarPlay, we’re now able to use Google Maps and Waze in CarPlay. However, there are two main issues. One, there’s no speed limit. This is a necessity and it’s kind of inexcusable that Google Maps doesn’t have this feature while Apple Maps and Waze (also from Google) do. Two, the voice feature doesn’t work at all in CarPlay. All the proper permissions have been allowed and all that happens when you press the microphone icon on the car screen in Google Maps is that you get the sound and the visual but nothing else. It sometimes says “No internet connection” and cancels, but mostly it hangs there. What’s happening is that it’s hanging there listening but it’s not receiving audio from the car’s microphones. I know that works because if you press the voice button on the steering wheel and use Siri, she hears and responds fine. Must be fixed to allow voice control or add Siri support..Version: 5.0

Staff are life saversI am an NHS keyworker and found myself in Newquay today. I had to take my dad for a scan at the hospital. My dad then said I could use his car to drive back to Exeter. As I got in his car to drive back in the rain I found one of the wiper blades was broken. I knew there was a Kwik fit just around the corner. I arrived there and ran in the door only to be told that they had closed at 5pm. Nik Curnow the manager that they would open again in the morning. After explaining my dilemma and informed him that I needed to get back to Exeter for work. Nik then said he would fit a new wiper blade. Nik and and whole team are real life savers and I am eternally grateful and appreciate the fact that they did not have to help but still did it anyway. Thank you so much guys.Version: 5.46

Helps avoid traffic jams!I generally know my route but always ask Google Maps to guide me. So often there is a traffic jam that I am advised to avoid. I also use Satellite View when taking my boat up small rivers. You can actually see the shallow water and navigate safely. My charts often don't go up rivers. Finding a shop or store that I have forgotten the name of is so helpful. It shows if the shop is open or not, saving a wasted journey..Version: 4.54

Bridge Yoga StudioI’ve been attending yoga classes at Bridge Yoga Studio for over 10 years, and it has become a staple in my weekly health/fitness routine. I began my yoga experience under the incredible instruction of Tony Rothberg, following him to the Richmond location. Not only is it a dedicated place to practice poses, mindfulness and the disciplined form of yoga, it is also a fun environment to exercise with a strong sense of community. The classes vary in level/experience and each teacher has a personal approach to their practice. I particularly enjoy the structure and flow to the Iyengar style with time to warm up the body and find strength as well as flexibility within the class with the use of props. It’s become an important part of my life and I feel the instant effect after each class. I wouldn’t live without it. It’s for anyone and everyone!.Version: 5.3.1

Angers meLook, this app is good, I can’t lie. However I always delete it when I have no storage left in my phone. So, picture this. You’re on a road trip with your friends, you want to get to a location. You simply go to your safari, type in google maps & type in the location you want to get to. It then suggests you get the app. You try to download it but you feel the pressure and build up of the slow, agonising wait for the app to download while in the back of your mind, you’re thinking ‘This is going to inhale all of my data’. Not only that, it takes AGES for the app to actually download. That’s all I have to say about it. Just let me do my thing on the inter-webs google maps :/.Version: 5.46

So good.Came here from TomTom, after being with them since 2003, only came over because of TT’s recent changes a few years ago, they’ve gone backwards, surely doomed, Google maps has everything, including free traffic updates, which are near perfect, even in quiet roads, where they’d get less mobile phone info, also love the Google Earth view, which I’ve used throughout France, with loss of maps, always had G. Earth view, very useful, also being google, very easy to find shops, petrol stations, places to eat, or even the smallest of businesses. So pleased with this, works well on my Samsung too..Version: 5.12

Automatically rotated to the northThe most recent update has the app that automatically rotated to north and when trying to be corrected it just “re-centers” itself which is very irritating. I can’t move around the map without the fear of it just recemtering itself..Version: 5.56

Issue with navigation when using Work or Home quick access buttonsOverall I love Google Maps, but hoping developers are regularly checking reviews & can fix a problem I’ve encountered. I’ve recently started trying to use the Work & Home quick launch navigation buttons on the Drive screen, but have found the app doesn’t track my progress & update the route if I deviate from the suggested course. I’ve gone back to selecting “Home” from my saved list (not sure why the app behaves differently), so that the app tracks my progress & provides updated route suggestions..Version: 4.52

Best navigation app out there!!I have been using google maps for year now and it just keeps getting beta. I love the fact that I can add stop. I love the fact that I can look up a destination get it to show me what time I will arrive if I left at a certain time or what time I have to leave if I want to arrive at a certain time or day. I use it everyday going to work and it will give me alternative route if it detects extra traffic. Thank you google for this great app!.Version: 5.35

Great but...Would love to see time options rather than given just quickest route so can see difference quickest route makes to commute..Version: 5.6

It’s a very important app to haveWhether you have other maps including your iPhone or phone’s depending on the phone obviously; this is not only a fun app to have because it can show you more of the place as well as give detailed information to to even when it’s busy itself most nights and in live time. But it’s also a relevant app, leaving you the option from the beginning to see the streets and know the traffic patterns. Ask yourself what your email address is? I remember in 6th grade google was handing out only 6 invites to gmail as the only way to get one. Because they always give their best. Maybe you don’t have gmail, maybe you don’t like google but as far as storage, apps, the earth to documents, they’re and doing all they can and they haven’t failed me. This app won’t fail. Check everything. Follow the directions make sure to pay attention at worst you’ll have another app in case your default one fails at best it’s useful and very helpful..Version: 4.37

Australia doesn’t use routesThis is a great little app, reasonably reliable and gives you the ability to customise whether you wish to avoid toll ways, ferries and motorways. The problem I have had with it lately though is that in Australia we don’t use the route numbers. Most roadway signs also don’t include them. So navigating without seeing the street names is a pain sometimes unless you are familiar with the route or only pay attention to the directions. An otherwise minor complaint that would be nice to have in a good app..Version: 5.25

Changes to the appI would definitely recommend/request an update where I can just put the street name and the map takes me there. For example instead of putting 32 Arion Road if i put Arion Road it ahould take me to the road. At this point if I put just “Arion road” it tells me to try again...please fix this...it started happening sometime last year before that it was all good.Version: 5.10

Almost perfectThe fact that google is the most accurate and reliable app as an navigator app. I would really like to see them adding feature such as speedometer and speed limit sign, this could really enhance the driving experience, not to mention other navigation apps are catching up with the feature of showing location of speed camera etc. but still google map is my to go app..Version: 4.47

I never imagined.As a young boy with a wonderful imagination, I couldn’t have believed that today, I would be holding a somewhat small device used to make and receive calls and messages, play games, have email, Google for information about almost anything and explore the world from above, zooming in so close I can see individual trees, cars, even animals, through Google Maps. I just love the 3D feature, especially when viewing the city high rises, famous landmarks and natural wonders. I look forward to when it’s available in more or all places. Street view is also a great feature, particularly when you are looking for directions so you can get a visual of what the building/house looks like, as well as the surrounding area - very helpful..Version: 4.58

Updated reviewThank you for fixing the bug, really appreciate it //this is for older version If I am swiping from the bottom of the screen - then I want to quit the app, not move the map! Why did you deactivate the bar?! The screen is giant, there is plenty of space for swiping to move the map, leave the safe area for the gesture bar!!! It is so annoying!.Version: 4.42

FantasticSo good that you can’t resist to buy.. very good quality.. totally worth for money.. Super happy with my purchase. Totally recommended to people who is looking for good quality & variety..Version: 4.53

Small correction please.I would like to ask the developers if possible to change the option when the gps offer a faster route instead of say no thanks should be yes thanks. Instead of the gps ask “ if you want to continue on your route “ should ask “ would you like the new way” I ride a bike and I can’t be taping the screen when the map decide to modify the route I set up since the beginning. But today I have to stop several times because the gps change my way and isn’t very friendly on a bike where you just follow the voice directions. Thanks for your help..Version: 5.15

North up on single touchWhen I touch the screen while on-route, the app makes north-up. Very irritating. It's now impossible to touch and see where the app is taking you. If you touch the screen, it's goes north-up. Crazy..Version: 5.55

Good apThis is a good ap but could be improved by including an option for when you begin your journey, or at any time you request it, it tells you the entire route to take as you drive. If you are familiar with the area, it just gives you a rundown of roads to use and where to turn off so you have a basic idea of where you’re going without having to listen out as you approach the road you’re supposed to turn down. Basically just a spoken overview option from the start..Version: 5.29

Better than sliced breadIt gives you such detail that is amazing, one of the best apps I have on my iPad I not only use it to find places I need to be in it kills me a time estimated time that you will arrive, very handy. And the turn by turn directions outstanding I don’t know why you would need To use any other app for Finding a destination . Used to be hard to kind of find places that’s in the past we get to the right place the first time with the outstanding turn by turn directions. The only thing it lacks is to be able to see real traffic, I did one time was able to see real traffic cars that passed me in the cars that passed in real time because it only was one time I cannot get that optional more. What happened Google maps. I would recommend this app to my grandmother it sure does a good job thank you very much Sincerely yours Never get lost.Version: 4.56

Recent rerouting and mobile data issueI’ve used Google maps as my number one choice for navigation for many years. I recently got a new iPhone XR, and have been having issues with the app for the first time ever. When I’m driving and using google maps as navigation, if I miss a turn and google maps needs to reroute, it’ll say rerouting, but never load the new route. I then try to force quit the app and refresh, but now my mobile data isn’t working at all. I try to renter my destination, but it just searches for a long time and then says I’m offline. No apps work with data, even a simple google search on safari is non responsive. I have no idea why this is happening. Please offer me a possible solution. (I also got a new GPS smart watch that my phone has been connected too whilst navigation, not sure that this should affect it, but thought I’d give you all information to help me solve the problem) Thank you in advance..Version: 5.16

LondonToo many mistakes in the navigation system! The application try to lead me into one way roads. Shows me “turn right” many times on places where i am not allowed to turn. Front of the Tower Bridge there are 3(!) mistakes too. For example the cars are not allowed to turn right from the Byward street to the Tower Bridge. I see many tourist every day do this mistake with rented cars because of the google maps and in this cross it is very dangerous maneuver. I do not like the Waze. Slower and looks confuseing compare the google maps. I still want to use this app but you should fix this issues asap because there are many around London. Please update your system more often. This is the most populare navigation system on the word. Please handel this fact with responsibility..Version: 5.24

Great for travel, and just pottering. Good that they act on your updatesSo useful for travel by car, bus, bike or foot. I've enjoyed planning trips, and looking back on trips. Not to mention exploring places that I'll never get to. If they keep on adding to their coverage of tracks and bike trails in New Zealand, I'll up my rating to five stars. And it's good to be able to submit updates and corrections. I'd like it easier to add missing paths. An update to add paths would be great. Glad that this is still running on IOS9..Version: 4.54

I was in love.I fell in love with Google Maps maybe about 7 years ago. It’s the reason I was one of the quickest pizza delivery drivers and why I’m always the one navigating family trips. I’ve been in Europe for 3 months now, and I rely desperately on my saved locations when exploring new countries. It was working beautifully until about 2 weeks ago (I assume with this new update), and when I was in London last week I was struggling to hit all the places I planned on because the map was refusing to show my saved places (my data is slow so I rely on Google Maps). I’m taking my last trip tomorrow and I don’t want to say that Google Maps is going to ruin the trip - but it definitely won’t make my trip any easier (like it used to). This is coming from a Google Maps enthusiast that annoys all her friends when she worships it (and bashes all other “Maps”). Please Google, fix this problem. I’m sure you won’t be able to for my trip tomorrow, but if my comment helps someone else, then AWESOME! And to the Google Team, I love you. Really. Thank you. May you get all the donuts you deserve..Version: 4.42

Can add ☝🏻 featureEverything is perfect but can add one feature. Like if go in any vehicle and it shows walking mode so it will change(car mode) automatically instead of we change it manually from walking mode to car mode..Version: 5.58

Google Maps - FabulousAwesome app - great to be able to see where u are going in real time and how far u have to go - plan stops on the way.Version: 5.24

As good as it gets?I have an Apple Watch and would dearly like to be able to use Google Maps on the watch. This is not because Apples native Maps app doesn't work, it works very well and the directions given on the watch are terrific especially on my bike but most people and web sites I know tend to send me map references from Google maps. This means I either need to look up the locations again or use my iPhone rather than my watch. I don't need to see a map, that is impractical, all I need is the audio and visual prompts to turn, which direction, where and when..Version: 5.6

Motorbike mode?Still one of, if not the best, navigation app out there. I have one suggestion for improvements though. I’m a motorcyclist and often have my phone mounted on the handlebar for navigation. However, the always lit up phone screen can often be a distraction as it attracts the eye more often than is required (i.e. I only need to glance at the screen when approaching junctions or roundabouts). What I suggest is to introduce a “motorcyclist mode” where the screen lock is active to reduce rider distraction. However as the vehicle approaches a junction, highway exit, roundabout etc, a simple full screen pictorial direction shows up. The screen would then revert to its locked mode afterwards. This would improve rider attention and therefore safety. It would also have the added benefit of conserving battery power. I know motorcyclists are probably a small demographic compared to the total population of google maps users, but I suspect even drivers would appreciate such a functionality..Version: 5.49

Virtually bullet proof but new feature for speed camera warnings is unreliableI have used Google Maps for several years and daily over the past two years with a new job putting me on the road for 800 miles per week. Navigation and re-routing are invaluable, as is the ability to pre-prepare timings to ensure I am never late for a meeting. I’ve always felt it lacking warnings for speed cameras to be an oversight and despite no notification this feature had been recently added, they just appeared. Great, so I thought. However, this is nothing short of useless. Rarely does it pick a camera up, on the odd occasion it does, it can often be just as you have passed one. It may as well announce “congratulations, you’ve just scored three points!” Given the importance of this feature, it needs to be removed until it is totally accurate and can be relied upon. It would also be great to have the speed limit of the road you are on displayed. Hopefully this will be added soon and the speed camera issue resolved..Version: 5.11

Only sometimes shows the saved locations on my phoneI wrote a review a while back that the app no longer showed saved locations making it cumbersome to go to ‘home’ or ‘work’ since those saved locations do not show up in ‘recent searches’. I am very impressed that google responded to my review and fixed the issue. Unfortunately, the fix is not entirely 100% and the app now is rather temperamental about whether or not it shows the stored locations. It seems that if you still have a route displayed and then want to change it, the app won’t show stored locations but when you start from the map/satellite image of your current location, it will. Previous review: Used to work beautifully for the daily commute from/to work/home because of real-time traffic. Now, however, when picking a destination it only shows recent searches and not saved locations like home or work. It’s irritating and defeats the purpose of having stored locations. Yes, I do know the usual way home but the whole purpose of using google maps is to know the best route given the current traffic situation.Version: 4.41

Map works well. Offline maps have problems.The app works well, except for the offline map download section. For some reason, it refuses to download maps for me. It either simply refuses to download (even though I’m on wifi and have 100% battery life), or it stops midway and then restarts downloading (eg it’ll stop at 94% and then restart back at 67%). It used to work fine but for some reason the current version won’t work. Has been this way for about two months now..Version: 4.48

Great. But beware the ‘AVOID TOLLS’ option! 😡Always rely on Google Maps when we’re in the US, and especially liked the ‘Avoid Tolls’ option when you’re in a rental car and don’t want a hefty admin fee from the agency for going through a cashless toll. However I discovered last week that it’s not reliable - drove from Ohio to Staten Island NY with ‘avoid tolls’ selected, no warnings/pop-ups to say anything to the contrary, only to find ourselves at a $15 bridge toll to get over to Staten Island. Turns out there is no way to avoid a toll on to the island, fair enough, but if that’s the case PLEASE GOOGLE can you give us some notification of this when we select the route? I could easily have gone to an ATM and got the money before we got there if I’d known, but the only mention of the toll is hidden away down in the route description, and the top of it still says ‘avoid tolls’. No warnings whatsoever. So I’m now looking at a hefty fine/admin fee that would have been entirely avoidable if the nav info had been more accurate. Yes I know that all New Yorkers are aware there’s a toll, but it was a last minute trip and I trusted google maps to just avoid the tolls if that’s what was selected, or tell me if it wasn’t possible. For future updates, the difference between cash and cashless tolls would be useful info, so we could avoid cashless tolls, but use cash tolls, as that’s what most people out of state are worried about..Version: 4.57

Please add Sri shortcuts to google mapsJust installed iOS 12.0.1 and Siri instructions does not open Google maps any more. I need to use Siri when I am driving. Please fix issue below. Please refer to apple support response below. I have just received feedback from my Engineers who have advised as follows As of now Google Maps is not compatible with Siri. However you can open the Google Maps app using Siri. You can’t ask Siri to open a location in Google Maps. With introduction of Shortcuts app, we can add custom Siri shortcuts to certain apps that support it. However Google Maps does not support Siri Shortcuts yet. You can reach out to Google Maps support and provide feedback to them so that they add Siri Shortcuts support in the future..Version: 5.2

Google maps reviewGoogle maps could be improved by having the ability to allow the selection of a holiday route that takes in points of interest for tourists such as waterfalls, museums, lakes, beaches, lookouts Google maps could also be improved by allowing the user to select towns, cities, or other destinations that may be between the start and end point of the trip Overall google maps is excellent.Version: 4.39

WestGate Kwik Fit to the rescue again!As a long term customer of this particular Kwik Fit branch on Westgate Road in Newcastle upon Tyne I have, over the last 17 years, never failed to be impressed by their attitude to customer service and care and their impressive ability to sort out car issues from the serious to the mundane... So, praise where praise is due to all the team who have once again helped me to maintain and repair my Kia Sedona and to keep it - plus my family of Grandchildren and me- safely on the road with a rapid repair and new MOT. I can’t thank them enough and would like to say that in my opinion the 5 stars above are not anywhere near enough! Well done Westgate team, you are all a credit to the Kwik Fit company Kind regards Anita Banks.Version: 5.50

Clutter clutterThe app has become slower and slower over time and it feels as if there to many features added. Overall prefer google maps but can be frustrating at times..Version: 5.20

Google you need to read this.I’ve been using google maps since forever! I cannot give them a bad review. Yeah, there may be and continue to be little details that many people may want to change and so forth but I consider it to be a great gps. Anyways I’m contacting google through the App Store to let you guys know that while I’ve been using google maps for work to complete my deliveries. I’ve noticed that the many places I go to make these deliveries the gps points me out to the incorrect locations most of the time. I usually have to go and find the addresses blindly until I can locate my customers location. I am not sure if you’ve sent out a driver to Lauderdale Lakes, Florida to update the street views and new developments. But there are many new buildings and older buildings standing today that google maps hasn’t updated on. Hopefully, google maps can update this soon enough. A lot of changes are occurring in this side of town..Version: 5.9

Bao Han Restaurant Hoi An VietnamEarlier this year my wife and I and 2 friends stayed just outside the beautiful historic city of Hoi An for 1 week . Close to our hotel , north of the town we stumbled apon the Bao Han whilst going for an evening walk . The restaurant is small but the owners and staff could not have been more welcoming . We didn’t know what to order from the extensive menu so Phi the lovely owner and maitre’d helped us chose the best seasonal options . The food was fantastic . The best Vietnamese seafood we had in our whole trip (including some fancy city restaurants in Saigon and Hanoi ) I would highly recommend this restaurant to everybody . We would love to come back and see you again Many thanks for the delicious food Jimmy and Paula London England.Version: 5.30

Please add the Route Option or avoid toll at the bottomPlease add the route option at the bottom when you start the navigation where we have “ Search along route, Preview Route Direction and Setting” I drive Uber and most of other drivers that I know have the same problem when they want to “avoid toll” as per customers request it takes a lot to access the “Route Option” and it’s not safe too to go all the way back to press Exit-Directions-press three dots - Route Option then avoid the toll!!.Version: 4.41

Great Navigation App!In addition to the suggestion in my previous review below, I thought adding support for Bluetooth connectivity to the OnBoard Diagnostic 2 (OBD2) interface of vehicles would improve the ability of this app to recommend the greenest/environmentally efficient route and possibly also provide additional data to improve Google’s self driving cars. I’d like to suggest an improvement for electric vehicle (EV) owners and that is that in addition to showing one or more of the shortest travel time routes when displaying directions, it would also show the most efficient EV route (e.g. based on shorter distance, predominantly flat and/or downhill terrain, recharging stations along the route (being able to specify the EV range of their vehicle to assist in calculating when charging would be required could be added to the settings), etc.), perhaps in a different colour (e.g. green) so that they can make a decision as to whether they’d like to take the optimal EV route instead of the quickest route (assuming they’re not one in the same)..Version: 5.19

Real Time Slower While DrivingUber driver was using #GoogleMaps while driving to #Whitford and missed a turn because the downloading of Satellite data was slower than her driving speed. Suggestion to #Uber drivers would be to use the “get directions” choice and screen shot it on your phone; or write down directions if you don’t know the area..Version: 4.42

Better than iOS MapsI guess I didn't even realize the difference between this and the native apple map. I switched to iPhone last year and was used to pressing a map link and it opened right up in maps. Well, apple does that too...but when I needed it badly I had to come download google maps. I was stuck in a delivery parking lot of a huge hospital in an unfamiliar city that apparently had one address for the whole campus. Apple's map made me almost lose my mind- "Turn right then turn right! Go southwest then immediately go north then turn right! Turn left then turn right!" It was insanity. I finally broke down and googled what I needed which prompted me to download Google Maps...And I was immediately given correct directions and found my medical office in less than 5 minutes. Now every time I need directions I find Google Maps is the only one that's accurate. 4 stars because it turns me sideways sometimes and did have me turn right off of an exit just to make an immediate u-turn when it should have just told me to turn left from the jump. Still- it gets me there which is what I ultimately care about..Version: 4.39

Awesome!!Best map app out there. I do a lot of point A to B travelling and need to know distances, with the ability to save customers addresses and my destination addresses, it makes giving a quote so much easier!.Version: 4.37

TrafficHaving the same problem with the new release now I have to turn the traffic every time I open the app. Pls fix 9/19 thx for fixing issue app back to being great again..Version: 4.36.1

Improvements for Apple Car PlayMaps on apple car play are not as good as mobile’s actual screen. Especially for size, color and touch sensitivity. Please provide option to manually disable maps going to car play screen. Also do not block phone screen with map directions as we need to use it for other phone apps & functions. When I switch to other app on iPhone screen, the map on apple car play also disappears. Please fix that. It will be good to have maps continue displaying on car play screen while we switch apps on mounted iPhone in car. Another good feature suggestion is to use phone’s accelerometer to measure sudden breaking & acceleration to help and improve driving habits..Version: 5.4

Street mapDear Sir, Excellent service by google map I am really enjoying google map while roaming INDIA in my car,scooter, Uber I like to suggest to do more accurate location please.Version: 5.35

BETTER THAN APPLE MAPS!Google maps is 100% better than apple maps, apple maps doesnt even know which direction im going in. Vv happy with this app !!.Version: 5.10

Whacky TimesGoogle love the service, but here in New Zealand I keep getting routes that say 40 minutes to an hour but should only take 15 minutes max. Also, difficult app to use when walking in the city. Expect better from a corporate giant but I know you guys will provide :).Version: 4.44

Simply the best and most up to date mapGot to say I'm always sceptical of the big players and their apps but this is simply the next app for directions out there! The maps are up to date and stay on even when 3G coverage is intermittent. If there is one thing missing it's speed limits for the road you're on. Apart from that this is so much better than any paid app and compared to waze it stays on the route and gives so many options as you drive for other routes. Still waiting for the map to show speed and speed limits. Waze has it so do many others. Come on Google please add this feature.Version: 5.19

How did I live when G maps was not around?Honest confession. Google is very Google - very nice. Tried Apple maps few times; disappointed. But 'Waze' app was doing pretty good too Mr. Google! Get the goodies Waze style. Respectfully Honest and sincere friend Sudhir.Version: 5.55

Better than Apple - needs a small design tweakBetter than Apple's maps. But you probably already know that by now Small suggestion As a designer I think Google's team have done a marvelous job at making all their app icons & apps look consistent and uniform. In contrast Apple's own app icons & apps look like they are all made by different companies. However there is only 2 standouts in the Google apps I currently have. Google maps & Google Street view are the only ones that don't have simple icons centred on white background..Version: 4.44

Almost all you need.Google maps is the easiest to use and has great display. only things that let it down is the way it always wants to show food joints around you or other interests. it’s annoying . app would get 5 stars if it showed vehicle speed and current speed limits. specially now that it’s used via car play . would then make other stand alone nav units obsolete.. perhaps they have an agreement not too ?.Version: 5.13

Fantastic companyWe just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our garden and wanted to say thank you. The team of lads we had working on it were superb with a first class attitude. They had some rain to contend with but were always on time, friendly, organised, enthusiastic and ensuring we were happy with everything they were doing at every stage. Danny is an excellent team leader and was always happy to answer any questions we raised. Danny and the team are an absolute credit to your company, and we will highly recommend your services to friends and family. Thanks again..Version: 5.54

I would give this a five starsIf you can let us zoom out as far as google earth if possible more please.Version: 5.21

A little frustratedOverall a pretty good experience, however you cannot buy everything in the store on the mobile app on my phone . Found that frustrating.Version: 4.48

Change the logo!Change the logo back to original one as it stands out on screen among other apps with similar logos! Sometimes Google map routes through a parking lot or very narrow countryside roads even though there is a main highway nearby. Please fix..Version: 5.43

My reviewI like this app. I don't drive, so if you do, can't help ya. But, I can tell you the app is wonderful at finding stuff in the area. 5 out of 5. Problems: I am a blind user and your app is almost perfect. One problem is on the For You tab, which I would love to use, but it wants me to select an area I care about on a map, which I can't do by any means. The second problem, most likely having nothing to do with me being blind, is when I have to press back to my location in order for it to measure distance correctly. Suggestions: I have two suggestions that would help me and possibly some others. The first one is for it to tell you the bus stop numbers. The second one is a notification you could turn on to tell you that your stop on the bus is getting close. This would be useful because not all the buses have the speaker system and even if I ask the driver to tell me a little heads up would be nice. Over all, this app is very wonderful..Version: 5.18

Please add a hgv part to this app🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻I love Google maps and would never go to a different navy system. It's clear, quick and very easy to use. It gives you all the info you need to have a safe journey. But, I now have my hgv licence and am looking for a good navigation system to use. One that could take the vehicle details and work out the best routes that avoid, weight limits, height and width restrictions. Green zones and also takes the vehicles speed limit into account. Maybe also tell you how long you have been driving for and when you need to take a break and for how long. Add a little hgv tab where the car, train, bike and walk bits are to open the hgv bit. If you could do this then you would continue to make me a very happy Google maps user.Version: 5.36

Almost perfect (almost)For the vast majority of usage, this app has been flawless. The traffic is accurate, the routing is good, and the user interface is simple and easy to use. However, I have found some things to be quite annoying. For one, I have found that sometimes when I am in the far left lane on the highway, the app will think I am on the wrong side of the road causing it to constantly reroute me (this mostly happens in HOV lanes and high speed ezpass lanes). Another issue is that if I purposely choose a slower route because it is fewer miles the app will constantly tell me it found a faster route (I know there is a faster way, but I purposefully chose the longer timed route!) this is very frustrating, and on my last 2 hour drive it told me 5 times that there was a faster way and I had to take my hand off the wheel to cancel the change. Finally, my last complaint is that there aren't more alternate routes given. I’m lucky if the app gives me 3 options, whereas online you can drag the route to any road and it will find a route. Other than these issues though, the app is very well implemented..Version: 4.44

AppreciateI definitely appreciate everything that you’ve done. Very enthusiastic and passionate. Highly recommended. Thank you!.Version: 5.15

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

MasterpieceGoogle 5.41 is a masterpiece. The display is gorgeous, the way you rate your trip at the end is fantastic, and it is still ole reliable when it comes to getting you where you want to go. Google is adding new places to its map services faster than ever and provides many ways to get there. The complaint list I have is small: Some old roads that are no longer available are still being routed through google maps. Occasionally the speed limits do not match either and it would be great to customize what displays you would like to have on at all times such as speed limit vs. your current speed. Also, rarely when you change direction after a stop, it does not pick this up quick enough and can be somewhat confusing for those bad with directions. All in all, Google maps has come a long way and I believe it is well on its way to becoming what we have all been waiting for and please: DO NOT CHANGE THE DISPLAY STYLE..Version: 5.42

Google Maps, I love you, but...By far one of my most frequently used, long-running apps. And now I live in NYC so have become obsessed with the new feature allowing us to label places as “want to go”, etc. My only complaint with Google Maps is its lag time in catching up to my location. It can sometimes take 5, 10+ minutes for the app to update my location from when previously used. My one *request* is that the app have more options to customize the pins! Example: when creating a new list, it would be helpful if there were multiple colors to choose from, rather than just having the baby blue option. This would help to distinguish between categories when looking at the map alone (rather than having to go and search through the lists). Maybe even allow for a custom-made option, such as using an emoji as a category instead of a color at all? This would be a total game changer and so improve my use of the app when searching for specific cuisines, unique features, etc.!.Version: 4.44

Awesome! better than iphone’s Maps appsPlease make AUTO route preview and Google maps with offline map for apple watch and save offline maps without requiring to redownload after signing out / after updating the apps / after certain days unless there are changes on the real roads..Version: 5.41

The best all round mapping appI find the quality of the maps to be pretty good, although the colour contrast could be better on my desktop PC. Fine on iOS. Streetview is extremely useful for many things, not least checking out a place before you go there. The biggest thing for me is the richness and quality of the pin data. This is particularly good as a lot of it is crowdsourced from the public who can add new things and edit mistakes. I’ve compared areas I know well with the other mainstream mapping apps like Apple and Bing and google wins hands-down. I’ve had timeline turned on for a few years now and find it really useful and interesting. Perhaps that’s not ideal for people who are paranoid about google knowing where you go though. I personally don’t care. One annoyance is having edits rejected by people or machines who clearly don’t know the area. I know it’s wrong! I live here / was just standing there! It took three attempts to change a car park’s address from “Burger Bar, Church St.....” Madness! The app could do with a field where you can leave a note for the reviewer..Version: 5.57

Can’t live without itBeen great using google maps over the years. I find the timeline very valuable when doing timesheets and reviewing past journeys. Just like a personal tracker you know where you were on what day and time. The latest version doesn’t seem to log departure and arrival time first thing in the morning and arriving back home dispute Consciously entering postcodes before staring off and maps displaying the journeys finished ??? I am just about to update to the latest release to see if it helps, but still the best navigation app available in my opinion. Keep up the good work..Version: 5.13
