Seems to be working great now

Seems to be working great now after the recent update. No more OFFLINE error message even though it was online and connected.
Google Maps
slicma on 7/15/2018
I think this app is the worst. iOS is definitely better in my opinion.
Amazing travel companion
KingArthurVI on 7/15/2018
From the days when we had to bring a physical map when traveling to this age... This app blows my mind. I've been to large cities like L.A. and NYC, and this app has never let me down. Transit directions are clear and everything just works. Update: lately whenever I launch the app and attempt to search for an address the app always goes into “poor connection, loading results” mode with a spinner showing. My WiFi is perfectly fine and other apps are working fine, not sure what the deal is here.
bill.littlef on 7/15/2018
Decent navigation app. But it keeps changing my route after I’ve selected the roads I want to take for a scenic drive. I had to change back several times and it took me several miles out of the way to keep putting me back on the fastest route. Let me pick my route and stay on it!!
Getting worse by the update
ChiefLaphog on 7/15/2018
I do not know what you are doing but with every update this app is getting worse with its gps. I use it for the same route regularly and recently it can’t even get me in the correct location and the directions aren’t matching up with where I am at in my trip
Good because it’s free
8naira8 on 7/15/2018
But there are def times it takes you a longer way. Another pro, however, is that you can download your area so you don’t use data.
Auto rerouting is stupid.
130156-beepbeepboopbeep on 7/15/2018
It’d be cool if when I pick the longer route due to insane traffic, your stupid app didn’t directly reroute me into that traffic.
Terrible used offline
JBMKTP on 7/15/2018
As someone who has no internet connection, google maps is plain horrible when used offline, especially when the map you download for a long time deletes itself after a month of no travel.
Zgn12345 on 7/15/2018
Terrible!!!!!! Use anything else would be better for sure
GPS locator not good
Spitfire70 on 7/15/2018
I’ve used the app for driving directions & it’s fine but the people locator is very poor. It shows the person where they were sometimes over 20 minuets ago & often snaps back to where they left from hours before. Refresh button doesn’t help either
keke10067 on 7/15/2018
So cool when I need it helps
No Longer Lets Me Label my Starred Places!!!
CowboyJoseph64 on 7/15/2018
I use Google Maps all the time, & usually don't have too many complaints. I loved that I was able to label some of my starred places so I could find them quicker, but now every time I try to label any place, I get an error message. I can no longer label any places on ANY of my devices!!! I am VERY frustrated about this!!! PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!
Google maps = Yay!
Nolatamara on 7/15/2018
Easy for this senior to use 🙋‍♀️
Arrow Wrong Direction!
JP0223 on 7/15/2018
What’s wrong with google map for the past 3-6 months?! The arrow always against the opposite direction of head of my car which is my direction!? Do I have to read the map with a 180 degree mindset?
Uploading Photos or Videos
IOS Pages Lover on 7/15/2018
Neither can my iPhone 6S Plus upload a photo nor a video via this app😡😡😡😵🤔🤔🤔 although the app has been added to the Add Widgets list
Accurate and Saves Time
SensualLady on 7/15/2018
I Love the Google apps it knows which route are delayed or if there’s construction up ahead or if the street is closed. The Best it knows how to predict traffic and accidents slowing moving access on any routes right away😍😍😍!!!
FJSake on 7/15/2018
No complaints. I love this app!
Only missing 1 thing!
Jtice10 on 7/15/2018
This is my go to for navigation. Great app, if it had speed limits it would be complete.
Running late again on 7/15/2018
Google maps never alerts you of service changes, especially on the weekends.
Keeps getting better.
Ace33f on 7/15/2018
Only use Google Maps since I’ve gotten rid of my GPS. I love how it always keeps up with the new streets that come out.
Chris060294 on 7/14/2018
Recent update made app way too quiet and frequently glitches.
Thx 😍👍🏻
Chkoupistan on 7/14/2018
Thanks google its a good app i see ever This app helped me so much with it everything is easy 👍🏻
nd: on 7/14/2018
Horrible speed in giving directions. Volume too low to hear even at loudest volume setting on phone
Distances not showing
Foxxx8222 on 7/14/2018
Google maps use to provide the distances of your searches from your current location, haven’t been seeing that feature lately and it’s a bummer
Griselle189 on 7/14/2018
Desde la ultima actualizacion no me esta funcionando correctamente, se sale de canal mientras voy por la via correcta, antes de actualizarlo me funcionaba perfectamente, pesima actualizacion!
gladiators1008 on 7/14/2018
I looked for my house. When I was a child. Impressive! Wish I could have seen the area a little better.
Don’t use!!!!
Taz-211 on 7/14/2018
Holy Crap!!!! This thing cost me an extra 500 miles for making me go around interstates. Put in an address and it kept making me go off interstate and add additional time. Route closed. Rerouting. Worst app ever. Avoid like the plague.
Terrible lag with locations.
schohl on 7/14/2018
The map always lags where my car is actually at. I have found that I can’t use it while driving and simply use my car navigation system.
Nick(name) on 7/14/2018
This app works pretty well most of the time but frequently I’ll be driving down the road and next thing I know it shows me driving off in a field somewhere off the side of the road I am on or it will show me off the road and not moving at all. Even after exiting the app and reloading my destination it will still show me sitting off in a field not even close to the highway. Gotten to the point where I trust my trucks factory GPS more or my Garmin GPS.
Not pleased
BigJBar on 7/14/2018
Been getting sent all over the place inconsistently. Not fun trying to navigate LA
Lightdarkgrey on 7/14/2018
Great! I could not be happier
I’m not going there
T2569 on 7/14/2018
I will raise my rating of the app when it stops suggesting I go to precious paws whatever the hell that is every time I unlock my phone. I’m never going there and I’m giving them a bad yelp review for your harassing ads for them.
Makes random unnecessary side routes
simjosan on 7/14/2018
Randomly puts you on backroads for no reason when you could be going straight on freeway. Actually wasted my time. Waze is better
spanky spanky on 7/14/2018
Great Stuff !!! on 7/14/2018
Thank you !!!
خالد يونس on 7/14/2018
Very bad service in Jordan
Complimentary visit
erin5 on 7/14/2018
I went for my first class this morning and it was awesome!!
Add more features
GoodyBo on 7/14/2018
It’d be nice if we can add or delete stops or change route.
Just add a speedometer
Coley909 on 7/14/2018
Waze does it but I wish Google maps would
td30a on 7/14/2018
Doesn’t work half the time!
Why did you change the layout
Alft70 on 7/14/2018
Now sometimes the search doesn’t pull up the distance so you can’t see how far away it is. It also doesn’t always pull up the closest location to you which makes having the distance important so you’re not driving out of your way when you’re pushed for time and there was a closer option. Now I’m having to use WAZE to see what the distances are.
Remembers my searches
Laura Plano on 7/14/2018
I like how the app remembers that I just checked directions on google maps on my computer and brings it up fast when I need it again on my phone.
Wrong address
nygrlthertzog on 7/14/2018
Google maps has a wrong address for my home. I keep trying to correct it but it keeps insisting I live in a neighboring town. So until this is corrected I will not be using the app.
Map frustrations
capamerica1975 on 7/14/2018
I’ve noticed recently that google maps doesn’t actually bring me fully to my destination. It will tell me “it’s on the left” but doesn’t tell me I need to take a road or turn to get into the parking lot. I end up driving in a circles to get back and pull in where it didn’t tell me originally. I wish there was a good way to suggest that the map was wrong in the app, but there isn’t... there should be a simple way to submit a suggestion where I can write that it didn’t take me where I needed!
double rainbow🌈🌈 on 7/14/2018
The app is great it can help get places
Semi truck friendly
bubba chicken on 7/14/2018
Just kicking the idea any way to make a truck friendly option google is great mapping tool would be great to have semi truck and trailer version of google or option to select for bigger vehicles such as RV,s for vacation
Gets worse and worse
Jebarrow on 7/13/2018
I decided early on that google maps was much better than apple maps. I like all the options to search for destinations. Lately though, google maps has been bugging out, decides not to tell me when to turn, tries to take me down closed streets, and tells me I’ve arrived when I’m passing my destination on the highway. After being super frustrated with rerouting processes, and being late to my destinations, I am done using google maps and am going back to Apple.
Inconsistent should be its name.
cn.q on 7/13/2018
If using public transportation you’re better off flipping a coin and saying a prayer. It will tell you the wrong times do you’re always waiting for the bus to come or watching it pass you by. It’s perfect for those who love being fashionably late
Works great until you use it.
Copper Genius on 7/13/2018
Used to be a great app, I don’t know what happened but I try not to use it very often anymore. A few venders told me their addresses are always reversed so that clients can’t make it to their stores. I have seen that and believe it is because they are not paying google for advertising. Also navigation when roads are closed doesn’t get updated anymore. In Santa Barbara there are closed roads but the app directs you to them anyway. The roads have been closed for 6 months now but still. When I used it last hoping to save time, I lost 40 minutes extra in a 35 minute drive. Yes it took 75 minutes to go 15 miles because of this app. Use another app Waze. It updates regularly and has some other great features
Could be 5 Stars but...
Patrick Andrews on 7/13/2018
Navigation is great. Accuracy is great. I love just about everything about Google Maps except for one thing. I wish they would add municipal boundaries. While driving around using the navigation it would be nice to know what city I’m in. Also when I am looking at the maps, I’d like to know where the borders are.
