Is there an option for a TRUCK Route for us truck drivers. Some city and town road we are unable to travel often leading to delay of transportation due to drivers struggling to find a truck route. Thanks G!
Location services lingers for several seconds after exiting app
Ming567 on 1/23/2018
App continues to track location services a few seconds after app close resulting in visible hollow location services arrow being shown. Old version would close immediately and help to save battery life.

I use google maps over maps
Bmoore1202 on 1/23/2018
I use google maps even though I have iPhone. But it’s odd or even stupid that it will take me in a circle going the opposite direction to get to my location instead of just having me turn left. For example this last time it wanted me to go up a road turn right, then right gain, then right again, then left to be back on the road my destination was on(where I started from) for me to then turn right to turn into parking lot. When I could have just turned left and been it wanted me to go in a complete circle for wasted time... lucky I saw my destination

Always wrong! Always demanding U-Turns where not permitted! Always losing signal while downtown Chicago and on Wacker Drive! Upper and lower! Always rerouting!

Great friendly staff. Couldn’t ask for more helpful and experienced staff! A+ in my book!!

I just took my cat there to get groomed. What an awesome little shop. The owner was very patient and gentle with my kitty. Reasonable prices too. I would definitely recommend this place! I will be taking my dog there next.
Good maps Update Not Responding when tapped
Travelur on 1/23/2018
I see developers just updated about 18 hours ago. I tapped on it to do the update I was notified about. It’s not updating in fact it doesn’t respond just sits there... yes I waited but nothing. If the developers could look into this it seems stuck ? Ok then. I’ll keep an eye out until then it’s not updating.. does nothing it is not responding.

i highly recommend this app if you travel or need navigation a lot. it blows all other map navigation apps completely out of the water.

They should add a speed meter and show the current speed. and Red light cameras, and speed cameras.
Better Right than Sorry
Binpyn on 1/23/2018
I have used GM for the last 7-8 years. Accurate, fast and intuitive in all aspects of navigation. I have a 2005 Dodge RAM truck, with Google Maps it becomes my Bentley on the road. Thanks Google that makes a great solution. One thing I would like to see is printing a map of my journey for my business reports and customer portfolio’s. I don’t want all the directions just a clear map to and from my location to theirs I can easily print. Thanks. Bob
Best public transit mapping & predictor
Sybil.Disobedience on 1/23/2018
I can’t say if their public transportation mapping and predictions are the best in every major city, but I can attest to the San Francisco Bay Area, which is not very easy to navigate, so let a native save you a lot of trouble. Forget all the other apps because they’re never as accurate nor as intuitive. Google has more resources to notify within seconds of schedule changes, quicker than the respective government agency where the delay may be (ie Muni accidents might not show up for 20 mins on predictions, yet Google Maps will immediately notify you and offer reroute)So no matter where you are traveling from, forget Muni app, or 511, or BART, etc., just coordinate your schedule through Google Maps. I also recommend getting a Clipper Card. Easiest way to keep track of transit passes and if you’re not sure your schedule you can just load cash which is redeemable on all transportation systems (though obviously passes are your best value).

Google map is the greatest for finding directions with ease!
The best hands down
Fonerin on 1/23/2018
Super great and getting better..
Police Maps
Glasscut on 1/23/2018 ever wonder why when you use google maps your driving direction changes suddenly and your driving down a different street than normal no traffic no reason to change to a different street.. Then bam you realize that the sudden change took you to a street where there’s police cars.. Sorry google some smells fishy.. Can’t be a coincidence it’s happened too many times..
Why is it messing up!
Mapuser16 on 1/23/2018
I've used google maps for a while and have had no problems. Now when ever I try to get directions it shows me the route for two seconds then disappears. So frustrating! Especially because I have recently moved to another country and this has been my main way of getting around. Has this happened to any one else? Is it going to be fixed anytime soon?
Google Traffic Widget no longer working - FIXED, Finally!
Jyunte on 1/22/2018
I like Google Maps, though I mostly use Waze while actually driving. This was fixed in the latest update: The Google Traffic Widget for iOS 11 stopped working the other day. It constantly says, "Unable to load".
Saucyasslili on 1/22/2018
Used to work perfectly fine until the last update. Now, when I list the directions, it doesn’t update in real time. I have to go back to the navigation screen and go back into my list in order to get an up to date list! Map also goes completely blue at times. And the sliding on the street view is terrible. Come on google.
Almost perfect (almost)
Gregory Lerner on 1/22/2018
For the vast majority of usage, this app has been flawless. The traffic is accurate, the routing is good, and the user interface is simple and easy to use. However, I have found some things to be quite annoying. For one, I have found that sometimes when I am in the far left lane on the highway, the app will think I am on the wrong side of the road causing it to constantly reroute me (this mostly happens in HOV lanes and high speed ezpass lanes). Another issue is that if I purposely choose a slower route because it is fewer miles the app will constantly tell me it found a faster route (I know there is a faster way, but I purposefully chose the longer timed route!) this is very frustrating, and on my last 2 hour drive it told me 5 times that there was a faster way and I had to take my hand off the wheel to cancel the change. Finally, my last complaint is that there aren't more alternate routes given. I’m lucky if the app gives me 3 options, whereas online you can drag the route to any road and it will find a route. Other than these issues though, the app is very well implemented.
Love the update!

I’m a new Llyf driver, and I don’t have audio when I respond to riders who want to be transported to and fro. I’m really at a loss as to how to remedy this particular problem. Any suggestions?

Awesome Google maps 5 star
Needs to be worked on
MahinTheQueen on 1/22/2018
Google Maps was really good when I first downloaded it, but it keeps relocating and re-centering while I’m driving. One minute I have 35 miles to drive, and the next I have to take a random exit. Overall it has taken me to the right locations, but always after it has strayed from the original route. It’s frustrating, and I end up driving more than I intended to via unknown backroads.
Speed limit and widget bug
HawkEye1194 on 1/22/2018
Needs to show the speed limit and an Apple Watch app. Also needs to remember my driving settings such as no tolls from the widget when you 3D Touch on the app. I would love to use the 3D Touch feature to quickly get directions but it never remembers my settings so I have to go into the app then type in my frequent location to get no tolls.
“ Go “ problem on 1/22/2018
Hi When I updated to last version I cannot use “Go” feature. When I choose my location and destination it doesn’t show me the ways on the map. Please check fix it soon because it’s a necessary application for people. Thanks so much.
Please Support Apple Watch Again
Taherkelani on 1/22/2018
Make humans life easier by re-supporting the best maps on Apple smart watch! I bike a lot and it is difficult to keep getting my phone out of my pocket at almost every junction to see the directions “sorry, I cannot depend only on sound”!
Speed Limit

Please ad a speed thang so I know how fast I’m going and what the speed limits are. Thanks

Best GPS, simple as that. 😀
Not what it used to be
Suz7567 on 1/22/2018
Had been such a reliable app, but in the past few months it has had some major problems on my Apple 7s. The projected time for a trip can be off by hours, the mileage is often off and does not send me the quickest way first, and it gets totally confused when it has to recalculate a route. I find myself pulling off the road and just looking at the map on this to figure out the route myself.

Nice place to dine-in. The food was fresh and the service was fast. Not greasy, but very flavorful. I definitely recommend for lunch or dinner.

The best free app ever even if my data is used to make the service better.

Recent change causing issues
Sondays on 1/22/2018
This has been my go-to guidance app for years. Always rated it a 5. Recently, the “start directions” button is now followed by “start gps” before it will navigate, for some reason. It has introduced slower processing speed, particularly in urban areas. So much slower in quick turns with tall buildings around that it lags and I miss the turn. Noted same issue another reviewer complained about. The “heads up” has also gotten quirky and the arrow representing my auto is often turned 90 degrees/sideways. Confusing. I’m going to try something else. Would love to hear from the developer in what’s up with this gps addition.

I used the app everywhere I go !! Awesome !!!!!!! Thanks Google.
