This app used to be reliable, It lags so much now it's useless, I can't use it to find anything. I've never had such severe issues with a Google app before. Its stupid, to think that I can no longer user the app because all these so called improvements and aesthetic updates within the app have prevented my phone from being able to use the app the way it used to work. Something that really annoys me also is the fact it still logs all the places I visit and then asks me to rate them, but it won't work properly when I need it.
Stupid app. How can you hire people who submit half backed ideas like this. On the app, it gives limited route options. I know there are other routes too. But it wont allow to change that. It becomes all the more harrowing experience when you are travelling with your family in the middle of the night and the route shown on google maps is closed. Why would you encourage such stupid solutions?
Awesome ! Great help in NY since my gps doesnt have a long battery life; but I could navigate NY nicely thanks to this app, I just planned the place using my tablet and then just mark the places on my phone and voila ! 5 thumbs up !! Will be with me always when traveling abroad !
Gave it a thorough workout the past days and it works great in-car. Like the search and pitstop features along the route. I however miss a motorcycle centric route-search that focuses on smaller, curvier roads. That'd be truly awesome! A speedometer would be nice to have in directions mode as well!
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.
This app is good if you like being lied to. I've never gotten home on time based on what it tells me. Take whatever it says and add 15-20 minutes. But don't worry! It will say you've "saved 9 minutes" on a drive that took an hour and a half when it was initially supposed to take an hour. Don't use this.
