I've always really liked this app for navigation, but recently there have been numerous very major road closings in my area and maps has taken me right through them, to the extent that I've had to turn around multiple times and try to figure out a way around. Meanwhile, maps is no help, because it's blissfully unaware that the road it wants me to take is currently a massive hole...
I just have an issue with switching from uber (uber driver) to the google maps navigation. When I select to navigate from uber, it works entirely well apart from an issue that never used to happen: when I tap the "navigate" from the uber driver app, Google maps then navigates me to a completely wrong location. Which then forces me to have to go back to the uber app and then note the address and manually type or say the correct address. I was not sure which product I was supposed to approach with this issue. Since I couldn't isolate on who to contact, I have copied and pasted this feedback onto the uber driver app and Google maps aswel. I hope this can be resolved please. Thanks in advanced.
Not going to win you any fans. Will you devs make up your mind and just stick to it. First we had a separate nav shortcut then it was removed, now a year or so later it's added back in... why. Now you change the Google ladies voice, for what? What exactly does that do to make Maps better!? How about some meaningful change, can we get a speedometer like other notable apps, only been waiting 4evr, isn't it about time for it? I like the floating bubbles for points of interest but careful with the clutter.
The app performs much slower than a few updates ago. Consistently loses GPS signal and freezes on a regular basis using either Galaxy S3 or S6. I now use another SatNav app as a backup which works perfectly but I prefer the Google graphics more - please fix.
My only problem with the app is that I cannot use it on my car. I have to get a third party app, which I have to pay for to use with carmode. Google maps are supposed to be a default navigation option when one uses the phone. Now I have to rely on some useless parties to provide that service. Make this app to be able to interface with vehicles infotaimant, I will give it 10 stars.
Being able to favourite a current location when offline AND have multiple locations for work and home (temporary ones for when on holiday would be even better) are some features that this could use. Walking instructions for the intermediary parts of the public transport directions would appear to be an obvious improvement.
