I would like to have a option to rotate the map with the driving direction in 2D. Right now the map always faces north. In the 3d perspective view the map rotates with your driving direction but personally I don't like this view so much. Plus, when we reach near the destination usually we park in the first spot that appears, that can be a little far away from the maps destination, would be nice to have a easy way to maps that we parked and that we will walk the rest of the way.
Interface was always intuitive and clean. Maps are superb and you can even take them offline. It is a shame you can't search them or get simple directions while offline. But the real treasure in this app is the amount of related information you get. Commuting hours, traffic, notifications, friends location, reviews from places. I really don't know how we could live without it years ago.
Please give an option to turn off place review auto translation.. im indonesian,,but my device using english,,and gmaps translate all indonesian review into english.. its really anoying because gmaps miss the auto translation and bring useless information in english.. so its better to keep the review on bahasa.. thanks..
It's almost 90% accurate. But many a times its unable to find to tk flyover or side road. Also when we choose a navigation, it start only after we move a distance. It's arrow Indicator appears after we move say approx 50 mtrs.
What is going on with this update?...it's been acting crazy all day...the GPS no longer moves or rerouts or anything!??...the app is not even talking...I know I can't be the only person that had this experience today...please fix this Asap!...I rely heavily on this for work.
It's what one would expect of a mobile interface for Google Maps, but I don't like that recent versions in the past month haven't allowed the traffic layer to be left on. It adds two taps minimum now to enable the traffic layer while I used to be able to leave it always on.
