I have always used Google maps & swore by it over Apple Maps. But lately it has been frustrating to use. I have “avoid tolls” on at all times - this past week it has been showing me and my fiancé the best routes being a toll roads, but it doesn’t say that the route has tolls! We drive for a living & are using this app constantly. I didn’t notice at first & now owe a $20 toll. Thankfully we noticed the glitch after this, otherwise it would have cost us.
Maps just doesn’t recognize these tollways anyway that it used to...odd.
Also have experienced in the past two weeks the app just not even working at all. I clicked start, directions, anything over and over & it wouldn’t work. It froze for multiple days. Checked, no updates needed so I was forced to resort back to Apple Maps
Okay I don’t know what’s going on lately but since about 3 days ago my Route Options have not worked for avoiding Toll Roads! This is literally insane and they won’t even allow me to choose another route. I’ve made sure I’m updated to the latest version of Maps and I’ve tried to see if this problem was happening on my android as well and what do you know; it is. I seriously need this fixed!! I’m not sure if it is only me but I doubt it since it is happening on my other device! It’s really upsetting and my home girls, especially when I’m in a rush to get somewhere! These tolls are expensive!! And I’m not made out of money. All the data you guys collect from us you should not be having stupid bugs like this!!! Please fix this and I will adjust my rating lol. Thanks.
Google Maps has always been #1 but lately I’ve been experiencing difficulty when it comes to submitting error reports, feedback, suggestions, etc with the app. Basically the app won’t let you unless you’re simply reporting an incorrect street name. All other errors, such as incorrect neighborhood names, incorrect park names, incorrect stream & river names, etc etc. - for some reason the app will NOT let you report these errors to Google. When you try, all you get is a pop-up message from Google saying something about the app not being available in your region yet (even though it obviously is). Would be nice if the Android Devs could fix this in the next update release.
Can’t pass directions to app from a shortcut if app is not already running. Just hangs with swirly loading indicator.
It’s a massive pain to do anything simple as this app tries to force you into doing searching for things rather than getting directions places.
Getting traffic info is good to have but you have to manually scan around your route to see traffic details.
Badly needs a “traffic on your route” button to get a better look specifically at traffic, not just the red spots on the route.
Also sorely needs a quick hold on location or something to quickly “get directions from current location” as it feels clunky and slow to simply get route and go.
In my growing years - l can say l have a great sense of direction. I have a good sense of my bearing for where my compass points are. Now that l am aging, my reflexes have slowed down some. So l resort to this app before l even get ready for the Drive. I write down the street names & also l can memorize the route l will take. This app Works in other countries as well.
I went home to the Philippines last year due to family emergency & l am amazed that this app worked So well!! It took the stress out of my family, since l have been away for many years!
THANK YOU...GOOGLE TEAM!!!
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK...
Just need to write a huge shout out to awesome service from Justin at Just Cars advanced locksmith! Literally the best service I have experienced in a while.... not only did he provide exactly what I needed but better than I originally wanted. Even after a small hiccup he went out of his way and made it right immediately with a smile....
my need: I needed an extra key fob for my used car that only provided one. Dealership quoted over $900 for replacement fiat key (say what?!!) found Justin who ended up at fraction the price , found the Abarth key fob (yay!!!) and he came to me!
I saved my place of work on google maps
Also I have (my businesses) app on my phone
And my work is on (my businesses app)
Once I search for my business on google maps the app exit immediately
My businesses app works fine and the reason why I mentioned it, is because when I get a notification on my business app and after I open it , the app transfer me to google maps to the location of my work and in the same second , google maps exit immediately
Seems as a conflict between both apps
This has been a bug that has not been fixed since ios 14 was released.I am able to pull up places but navigation wont start. Tapping on start button wont start the navigation, the app would stop responding instead. Then two to three times we have to kill the app and then it works. This is a terrible customer experience especially if we are in a hurry to get somewhere and we need the navigation started soon. Please look into it on an urgent basis and fix asap
Device- iphone 6s
Google maps was the go-to map app but now all of the roads that you could use to navigate by like I-81 I-78 are now displayed as some jackarse or another memorial hwy. Sorry there aren't any of the big green signs out there that day jackarse hwy , they still say I-81 etc. Please get your heads out of your arses and put the common nomenclature back. (maybe add bucknut memorial hwy in parens). Can't believe I'm gonna have to delete what was my go-to map.
I had been using Google maps, not because it is the best app, but because it allowed me to easily store addresses. This new version completely erased TWO YEARS of lists I built after moving to a brand new country. They are completely gone. I have been on every forum, read every post and comment. Sadly, I am not the only person who lost precious data - some people’s livelihoods depend on it! I am so disappointed and am now searching for an alternative.
