is there a way to get the update to only commence after I'm done navigating? I was using the navigation, and then it silently stopped in the middle because it was updating! I'd like to be able to change the departure time to now without starting all over again. Also, I think it would be more convenient if I could type in the time when I do want to select a time rather than having to scroll.
I don't know what happened in the most recent update but this never has been an issue beforehand. Whenever I open maps in the app I now physically have to swipe right to turn satellite on. I've always had this as a pre set to automatically turn on and keep on unless I chose to turn off.... I can't find any way to just keep the satellite view on like I can elect to show traffic. Please advise
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. AS USUAL GOOGLE IS CLUELESS
It's OK, it finds addresses, only on WiFi though, which sucks. Give routes that take you on unnecessary shortcuts(that end up not being shortcuts at all) pretty sure they are tied in with gas stations to make you drive around unnecessarily out if your way to waste gas.. Use Waze, it's way better
Maps has been getting better over the past couple years. I would like to have the voice for navigation give directions to each road no matter the distance between turns. (I use a motorcycle and headphones for navigation)
Map reading these days is difficult for me, as is using Google Maps when turning the map screen around until I'm reasonably certain of which direction to follow. Finding the decreased walking distance measurement on screen is helpful, as are the highlighted places to show I'm on the right path.
