Lacks personalization options, overemphasizes fast route vs. mileage/fuel efficiency, won't learn from my driving choices. Often tries to take me miles out of my direct route to save a minute or two. Day after day, I ignore such guidance and drive a more direct route, but Google maps never adapts. Even my 5-year-old Toyota's in-dash GPS lets me pick from fast, short, and eco-friendly options. Why can't this app offer more customization? Also, sometimes there's no start button after I've set up a route. Finally, route doesn't resume when continuing trip after turning off phone.
Google Maps works great for me, I never have a problem with it. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is cause I'd like see you guys add a bookmarks or favorite places feature. I want to be able to write a friends name and have their address come up or save a place you found that's kinda off the grid and you want to remember it for future reference. EDIT: Boom, places and labels is a thing now. 5 stars!
Great update, but still, would you consider adding option for major road only which is used for cars, cause we've been re-routing to unpaved road for faster route which is not suitable for cars. Its need more features. Also often gps tracking lost and longer to back tracking again.
The update that signals the arrival and DONE should of stayed in Manuel mode the AUTO DONE feature is annoying and frustration when you pass up the address. The older version when it would reroute you till you pushed DONE Manuely. Was much better for business meetings.
App good, but recently it has stopped putting all destinations on your timeline. Sometimes doesn't start from home, misses places and times aren't accurate. It used to record from time I left home until I returned.
Downgraded it's ranking from 5* to 1* and very depressed the way it navigated through small villages and crop fields by avoiding 4 lane highway (because it assumed it will save my 2 minutes): I want to use only highways and it doesn't show how to choose option for that. Day before yesterday i had to traveled through many smalls road passing through villages and crop fields shown by google maps by avoiding a 4 lane highway. I want to use highway or tollway as preferred travel if available. They must now have change it so drastically that it is of no use.
