Street view obscured; navigation slow 2/5
Help! After the latest update, a couple issues I’ve had: when going to street view, it’s now obscured by “tap here/swipe to move” yellow arrow and words, obscuring the street view entirely. There doesn’t appear any way to turn it off, and it isn’t needed anyway. It’s pretty obvious how to go down the street. Please consider removing it; it’s much better to see the street than learn how to navigate something we already know how to do. I always check directions before driving somewhere, and use street view to make sure I know the building before setting out. The other thing I’ve had happen every time since updating is for the voice to tell me where to go AFTER I’ve passed the place. She’s constantly telling me to make u-turns. And to make them where there is no place to make them. I often drive right past my destination and she hasn’t even gotten to the street I’m on. This is why I use street view to know where I’m going; Google Siri has gotten veeeeeeeery slow in her navigating. She’s also big on mispronouncing street names! Lol
Horrible app doesn’t work properly ....the one that actually comes with the phone is even worse zero stars if I could
Very bad directions 1/5

Last month too much missing direction and location
Not user friendly ! Difficult to get destination with this upgrade 1/5

Not user friendly anybit!!
Simple and marvelous 5/5
Direction pointer confusing. 4/5
Hi google developer. I really like ur app. But when it comes to point the direction, can u change the existing icon. Instead of using looks like eye view shape, can you just use an arrow and make it dark color. It is really hard to find the direction with existing pointer.
Fast,accurate and works with our CarPlay seamlessly.

I enjoy the maps and the directions

More forced junk and less reliable than ever before. 1/5
Stop adding junk forced features that we can not turn off.
Still asking this after several years.... add an “user option setting” ( yes that means an option / setting one can toggle on and off as an end user lemmings ) to route so that one arrives to said address on that side of street of that address routed to.
2. Routing has become more and more unreliable and very foolish over that last 2 years... especially the last 3-4 months. Less route options given, and routing itself now all to often routes one in “ grandpa’s detour” to say it nicely.
3. Crashes and construction detours are usually marked on map, but oddly still seems to route that way and says it will be less travel time... but it never is. Not talking about new construction either; stuff that has been going on for months, yet it will still route that way into construction. Ill compare said arrival time, and it’s commonly 6-8 min off on a 30-35 min drive. Meanwhile if i took that way it said was longer is actually shorter... 👍
Poor Navigation 2/5
By Tho N.
In recent weeks, I have had really poor navigation with google maps. The app works fine when the car is standing still but the moment the car starts moving, it appears like the app cannot properly track my location. The arrow doesn’t follow the route steadily, sometimes the arrow points in the wrong direction, and often times the arrow doesn’t know when I have made a turn. Essentially, I am unable to use Google Maps as an effective GPS lately. I got lost on the road at least twice now and I’m running out of patience for this app...
Please add this feature! 4/5
It would be awesome to be able to set a radius around my hometown so that the gps would tell me to "get onto RT 80 east" rather than instruct me how to leave my driveway.
Needs some improvements 3/5
Keeps telling me I have location services disabled. I know I do, I don't need to be told all the time.
When tapping the screen to remove frames it's too easy to accidentally drop a pin.
The street lines are hard to see, needs better contrast.

No speed limit notifier 3/5
Needs speed limit signs which ever road is been traveled.
Gps won’t stay true to the car route 1/5
By Mr mcgool
Every time I use it it says my car is a street behind even though it’s updated up to date.
Flaws of Google maps 4/5
It’s pretty good but doesn’t count stop lights on the ETA and sometimes sends you on a harder routes to your destination when there’s an easier ones
Scans you private photos 1/5
By default the app scans your private photos to offer to upload them for locations. This is uncalled for. Stay away from my private photos.
Does not know roads 1/5
Took me to road that did not exist.
App needs work.
Poor service 1/5

These folks are not honest and do not follow through with their comments be ware
Awesome Experience 5/5
No hassles. No hidden fees. I was not put on hold for a half hour just to be transferred by robots and pre recordings. Agent didn’t try to up sell me on packages I didn’t ask for or want. Friendly. Quick service. Veteran friendly. Affordable. I will only use budget from this point forward when it comes to renting cars.
Was Great 3/5
I don’t know what happened with the app but it’s not working like before. There’s been times where the arrow that represents me doesn’t even move and then it doesn’t recalculate and it still stuck on a route that it wanted me to drive on. This doesn’t help me when I’m driving. I hope you’ll fix this issue.
Great, but... 4/5
After getting my iPhone 8 I immediately deleted the iOS maps app and downloaded google maps. It’s far better than maps which is preloaded on the phone. The only problem I have is the voice volume is very low. Can you make a way to turn it up. When I’m driving, I use the Bluetooth feature to play music while simultaneously running google maps. While listening to my music at a reasonable volume, I am unable to here the directions being given to me. I end up turning the volume up but then the music comes back on and it’s very loud. Can we turn up the volume for google maps or put a voice volume feature in settings?
Uber and Lyft 1/5
I’m not liking that they added a feature for the Uber and lyft. How can I disable it? I’m not able to get any directs at all because of the Uber and lyft setting at the bottom.
Stores Location Data Without Permission 1/5
New research shows that Google apps track and store your location even when you’ve selected the option not to do so. Google explicitly states that turning off location services and turning off that feature will prevent this, and now we know this to be false. Google is also helping China commit humanitarian offenses. You used to stand for information freedom and privacy, Google. Now you’ve become the antithesis of those thing. You’ve become the world leader in the things you stood against. I’m done with google all together. I’ll stick to Apple Maps, Waze, Bings, etc.
Plays Minecraft meme 5/5
Privacy liability 2/5
Map quality, especially wrt businesses, is far superior to apples, but anything google is always going to be a privacy nightmare. In light of recent news that google apps will track and store your location even if you ask them not to, I think there's nothing I can do but delete it.
V 4.56 3/5
Really why when I go out from a photo it’s brings me back to the top photos?
I like the older version of the photos
Recent update 1/5
By CA user 01
After the recent update, the google map app has been very slow finding the current location. It used to be very accurate but now it takes a while after I start driving to find the current location (it showed off-road even after I already got on the highway). The blue triangle on the route doesn’t even pointing the right direction on the route during the first couple of minutes. Please bring back the previous working version!
Tracks your location when you tell it not to 1/5
Don’t need an app that ignores permissions. Anyone that knows anything about computers know this is a pretty big issue.
Huge privacy risk. Deleting 1/5
This app keeps a timeline of our location history. Background location tracking is a huge violation of our privacy.

This is a awesome gps mobile application. Great features.
Terrible GPS Update Speed and Slow Maps 1/5
I have been using google maps for several months. It seems to get worse everyday. The update/refresh speed for gps tracking is terrible. The maps take forever to load sometimes even on a very fast connection. This is unacceptable for a company with the resources and revenues of Google.
Never gets lost always on time big ups google maps

Since the last update google maps can’t even figure out where I am, let alone give me directions. Would give zero stars if I could.

The best hot dogs in town. This young man has made it!! Build your own burger, I usually like mine the old fashioned way with lettuce, onion, tomato, mayo, & mustard, but by the time it comes out it is piled high and tastes wonderful! Next time I will try Cheese on my burger, but I will not try bacon on my hot dog. He has perfected the chili dog, a little cheese and a few chopped onions. All I can say is WOW!
My five star review 5/5
I love this app it’s very resourceful and takes you to the right place! 😃
Thanks for the tracking information. Very helpful! 5/5
Only way I don’t make it! 5/5
By K.C Morgan
I am so grateful that that map icon is always on my start screen , I have dyslexia and my brain literally automatically confuses north, south, east and west .so my life depends on a good navigational system . I do wish it was a choice to say “straight “or “turn right “ or “turn around “ etc rather than north, south, etc. but thank u for keeping me from being lost for hours going 10 miles down the road!!!!
GPS privacy 1/5
By P stizzles
Princeton U proved that google takes your location no matter how you set the privacy. So it takes your location even if you tell it not to.
Ask for feedback on accuracy 4/5
By Walter Arjune
After using a map Google maps should email or text the person to ask for accuracy or missing information On the Google directions given.

Used to work 2/5
I’ve been using Google Maps app since... I got a Smart Phone. iPhone user. I Never liked the Maps on iPhone. Google Maps was Always Superior... Until Recently! I have a iPhone 7 Plus now, I’ve had this phone for just over a year. All the sudden Google Maps has been going haywire! The triangle Positioner is upside down... and it’s routing me on the wrong side of the road! Against Traffic! It told me to go around the median and into oncoming traffic. On my last trip (two weeks ago) we were only 5-10 minutes from our hotel eating dinner. But the gps said we were 55 mins away and wanted us to get on the freeway then U-turn and go all the way back, then to the hotel! I Deleted the app. I’m now re-downloading it two weeks later in hopes it’s working now!
Navigation is too slow 2/5
The voice navigation isn’t fast enough for Los Angeles. It’s lead me to hundreds of missed turns. Other apps don’t have this trouble in LA. It’s unfortunate because the amount of info this app has is great, it just doesn’t come through fast enough.
It was good until... 3/5
By Madii Jordan
Recently, the arrow that indicates where you are has stopped working. It doesn't tell me what direction I'm facing and doesn't move when I move. I can't tell where I am on a path, what direction I need to go, or when I'll ACTUALLY get there!
