I have a phone with 4gb of ram and when the app is running, my phone is using 3.7gb of the 4. It slows my phone down greatly and it also doesn't recognize a lot of construction in my area and the construction has been projects that have been ongoing for quite some time. I live in the twin cities. Google needs to give users the ability to report issues with roads and they need to make the app more lightweight again, used to be a lightweight app and used to be able to know about construction great, but not anymore
Lacks personalization options. Won't learn from my driving choices. Tries to take me 3 miles out of my direct route to save 1 minute. Day after day, I ignore such guidance and choose a more fuel-efficient route, but Google maps never adapts. Even my 5-year-old Toyota's in-dash GPS lets me pick from fast, short, and fuel-efficient options. Why can't this app offer more customization?
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.
Perfect navigation app, I have it mounted over my radio for convenient handsfree GPS navigation. HOWEVER it's not user friendly when you're trying to read the freeway/streets in that green status bar. The freeway label is so small! I'm young and have 20/20 vision so that says a lot. You see that magnifying glass they use in the second screenshot? I need that in the first screenshot up top for the blue freeway label. Bump up the font size!!!
Google maps was working flawlessly until about a week ago on the OnePlus 3T. It will find your position and where you want to go to but once you start the directions the arrow doesn't move along with my position. I have never had it send me down a 1 way road before but that has happened twice now almost causing a wreck. Please fix this ASAP and I will give 5 stars!
Hasn't worked since I've turned this phone on. Brand new Galaxy S8. Everything is updated and clean, but the app continues to completely shut down on it's own during use. When not in use, when just trying to zoom in and out of the map the app moves from the area you were in, into a whole other area of the map on its own. Was an great app, but now I use Waze with no problems and out even gives you a heads up on nearby police. Maps is no more.
