Evolving and getting better 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.
Useful but is lacking If you're traveling around town this is great however I have found the absence of lane assist to be too much of an important feature to be without. I don't do much motorway driving and using Gmaps as my satnav I'm frequently missing sliproads as don't even know I'm in the wrong lane.... This would be the perfect Sat nav if it just had lane assist.
Accurate BUT requires 'high accuracy' location The older versions happily used GPS only locations. Not the new versions; it demands the less privacy-hating high accuracy service. What changed? If it worked once, why doesn't it work anymore? If I turn off wifi and cellular service, it works just fine. I am going to stop using this because I want to limit Google tracking.
Why is Uber thrusted into our face Now hate it, why have we got Uber thrusted into our face? Should be a setting for Uber (to show or not to show depending on your personal preference). Only interested in Driving, Walking (with Public Transport) and Cycling...... Uber = Annoying Advertisement. The Uber button is very intrusive and it even looks more like a person hailing for a taxi instead, and not how the buttons appear in the Google Play Store. Please don't mislead Map Users in the Google Play Store.
It is Nice app. Really usefull. It is best guide for new place where we go. But battery drain fast when we use location base drive assistance. So in long drive we have to check it & close ,it again & again to save battery. Do need full for this. Very small details also mentioned in maps Good. Thanks
Waiting for return of nav w/o destination The best feature maps ever had was taken and has yet to return. Navigation with no destination is selected was my most used feature. It's gone and I still miss it. Google, catch a clue.
• Check out photos of hotel rooms right on the place sheet
• Search for places by category (supermarkets, restaurants, etc.) even when using Maps offline
