This app is next to useless on its own Since this app was separated off of the main Maps app, it has become useless. First of all, it never starts zoomed in to a reasonable level for the area with markers - It starts at the entire continent and requries me to zoom in every time I start it. Next, I can't see normal points of interest from maps on my custom maps. It would be MUCH better if my markers could be turned on as a layer in the normal Map application. That way, I could use them with navigation and generally available info like phone numbers/hours/reviews.
needs integration with google maps agree with all the previous reviews regarding lack of functionality- why is this not integrated with google maps for directions???? I downloaded this app to be able to use and view the custom maps I created for an upcoming trip, but it doesn't seem to allow my city to city step by step directions to be displayed. Review update a month later: I am downgrading my review to one star after realizing that it doesn't save uploaded photos of places, and can't save a map offline for when travelling without a data connection. Also the icons are way too large to allow clear viewing of the map. This app is a prime example of a great idea with poor, poor, poor execution. Google, please spend some money on updating / fixing this!!!
Major downgrade No offline mode/download map, no navigation, icons are too big, map starts zoomed way out, very slow at loading maps, even slower at loading icons and lines often keeps them at a giant blurred state for 10-15 seconds before reducing to a more reasonable size but still too big.
disappointment besides the fact this should be a part of the main Maps application I got this hoping I could map a trip with multiple stops/locations & send that to maps's nav, seems not. the search results are limited by screen size, selecting a result & then pressing back doesn't go back to the search, searches aren't even remembered/no history & I'm just getting started! it's a mess.
Where's StreetView??? This app *needs* to be fully integrated with the main Google Maps app with all of its features and most importantly Google StreetView. It would also be best if it was integrated into all the other Google apps especially Gmail, Drawings, Docs, and Drive. Also, it needs to have as many of the custom icons/place markers add the old custom maps on My Places on Google Maps. I had made some custom maps for trips with restaurant, park, etc. icons, which were all lost in the new My Maps.
Great app in progress I found this App to be very useful for having many locations on a single map that you may need to drive too that can be updated and shared by simply importing from a excel file on the PC. Only down side is I cannot quickly find the location by using the description search feature in the app on the android smart phone if the location is a LAT and LONG. I have so many locations that it is difficult to zoom in on the one I need to drive to because I cannot read the name on the map. Hope this feature is added soon.
