Still not as good as the older one, but... Google: you made it easier to compare ETA between walking and driving?? Seriously??! (Protip: driving is faster) Howabout making it easier to manually switch between driving routes on the fly? Also, the map draws WAY too much data for my 2-hour trips between S.F. and Sacramento.
Works but lost alternate routes 99.9% reliable... sometimes it stops updating my location as I'm driving and could use a speed boost (directions load fast, just the app itself is slow) bring back alternate routes! It used to show me how much faster or slower a route was but now it doesn't. Bring it back!
Excellent GPS App Perfect GPS for light and basic use. Good set of features, and integrates well with voice commands. Say, "Okay Google... navigate to Los Angeles Coliseum." No hands-on needed, it just goes. If you commute or drive long distances, Waze is better for that. If you are a delivery driver, check out an app called Road Warrior. A professional driver, a dedicated GPS is still worth buying. Google Maps does the basics, and does them well.
Buggy as. Can't search within offline maps while offline. TTS now refuses to use any voice other than the built in voice. Bah! STOP REMOVING USER CHOICE! YOU'RE NOT APPLE!
Used to be 5 stars... I miss the original app prior to the major redesign. Hate that I can't see layers like gas stations along my route without exiting navigation. Lots of other features seem to have disappeared. Navigation closes if I switch to another app (before it used to continue to work in the background). Performance is poor.
Can't add intermediate travel points. Most of my trips involve stopping along the way at one or more places that are not necessarily on the same path as the best start to finish path. I would like the ability to add these stop points and have it calculate the best overall trip path.
