It doesn't have a lot of the features that the old Maps did, like zoom buttons instead of having to pinch, distance-measuring tools, and being able to navigate to a destination without having to Get Directions first. However, Google has integrated Navigation into Maps and made it feel like it flows much better, and they're constantly adding support for other stuff within Maps like Waze or Uber.
There isn't any app as useful as Google maps, It's an absolute life saver. Not only does Google Maps have the most un-intrusive adds but they're also useful, Thank you Google!! Ps. Please add an "always avoid tolls " by default option and a Posted Speed feature( like on Waze ) would be amazing. Thank you so much!
I love this app. It's wonderful. It gives me the fastest route to get where ever I'm going. But it would be nice if it would post speed limits. That would be very helpful. Also if this app would tell you that if there was a highway patrol taking radar or a city cop taking radar as well. That would really help too. So like have a blinking red light on the map to tell you that a cop is taking radar. Some of us do have a lead foot at times. Don't mean to but it just happens. Other than that I love this app. It's the best. I gave it a five star. Keep up the good work on this app and thank you very much.
I love Google Maps. Great app and constantly improving! I use for a lot of searches. Only reason not 5 stars is because I really want to be able to toggle the default "route options" in navigation. I want to set the default to avoid tolls, as I do not use them. Currently, I have to search directions and then toggle the settings afterwards, wasting precious seconds REcalculating every time. It is a useless extra step I have to do every time I use navigation. Otherwise, always excellent!
HUGE battery drain while navigating. Even plugged into car charger phone will not keep full charge while navigating. Does not show current speed and speed limit. Instead of adding features to expand app Google keeps adding junk. New suggest photo feature is Incredibly ANNOYING
Useless as a map. Non-map functions/car navigation in cities are OK, but as a map it is useless, because it needs online data access to work at all and only displays in ultra low contrast white/grey. Impossible to see white roads against off-white landscape. All roads are of tiny width - unusable outside and when driving.
