Lacks personalization options, overemphasizes fast route vs. mileage/fuel efficiency, won't learn from my driving choices. Often tries to take me miles out of my direct route to save a minute or two. Day after day, I ignore such guidance and drive a more direct route, but Google maps never adapts. Even my 5-year-old Toyota's in-dash GPS lets me pick from fast, short, and eco-friendly options. Why can't this app offer more customization? Also, sometimes there's no start button after I've set up a route. Finally, route doesn't resume when continuing trip after turning off phone.
Google Maps works great for me, I never have a problem with it. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is cause I'd like see you guys add a bookmarks or favorite places feature. I want to be able to write a friends name and have their address come up or save a place you found that's kinda off the grid and you want to remember it for future reference. EDIT: Boom, places and labels is a thing now. 5 stars!
Great update, but still, would you consider adding option for major road only which is used for cars, cause we've been re-routing to unpaved road for faster route which is not suitable for cars. Its need more features. Also often gps tracking lost and longer to back tracking again.
How do I get the screen to be behind the car icon instead of on top whenever a trip on the app starts. It used to be behind after you put the location in but now it starts on top and you cannot see clearly on whether to turn right or left to go forwards or backwards because it gives a picture of the map overhead, also how do you get it to the setting where it is on driving directions instead of walking directions whenever you first start a trip. You need to get this back to the way it used to be. Fix this.
It was great until you got rid of the arrow and put a blob that doesn't stay on the road and doesn't follow the mapping that it gives you. Now it just draws a line way off to the side and you it doesn't even travel with it. You screwed it up way to go. Fix your s*** when it works don't try to fix it. It wasn't broken and now it is. Great. I use it for my job every day and now I don't have it because you screwed it up. f*** you Google
This app (accurate traffic reporting) has saved me hours on my journeys and it's fab. 3 stars though for a few issues. Generally it hasn't changed much in years, the screen layout (zoom, lane to be in access to favourites, etc) is miles behind others. But the biggest issue is lack of speedometer/speed limit. Other apps even free ones have this.
