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!
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.
On the s7 edge running Android 7, there is a bug where in split screen view Google maps won't update unless you actively interact with it. So, if I have Spotify and Google maps in split screen and I interact with Spotify, Google maps will freeze unless I retap that part of the screen. Please fix this issue.
It's really unbelievable that Google still doesn't implement language settings. If your system language is English and you are living/staying another country you have big problem about pronunciation of the name of the places. Maps trying to pronunciation Turkish street names as in English and nothing can understand. Horrible
