Apple car play and Apple Watch support?

Almost Every day I use

I love this map and I use Google map almost every day
Website vs app
Spdemon68 on 2/19/2018
Why does the website always push me to the app when the app doesn’t have all the features? I still can’t pick an arrival time via the app... stop taking me off the website until the app is as good!
Turn by turn stopped working

🤔 You did this once before, fixed it, then did it again. Why?
Issues with pic contributions
Feubgjc on 2/19/2018
App locks up when I go to add a pic to a review. Also is not recognizing “pics taken nearby “ of subject of review.
Not at all working properly ! Disgusting
hate this maps on 2/19/2018
Earlier I used to follow google maps and it worked great but now a days don’t know why but it’s disgusting! Taking wrong places . Forst of all its not at all showing the route . It’s purpose itself its not satisfied. Waste of time and energy . Planning to buy a gps device .
Over price Do not purchase anything from there.
Poop man 1933 on 2/19/2018
Everything in the store is overpriced do not purchase anything.
New version - doesn’t save settings
LilaSwolf on 2/19/2018
Now every time I open the app, it automatically shows the traffic, even though I had it within the settings to not show. It automatically resets to show, even though I turn it off each time. It should remember the settings either within the app preferences or from the last used setting.

Always a much easier route
The67chevy on 2/19/2018
Google maps will take you long / wrong way when much easier way is possible. Literally had me turn into a ghetto neighborhood go though 20 turns when had I stayed on the main road my destination was straight ahead with one turn to the right off the main road in the town I was in...
I love this app.
Azul1a on 2/19/2018
This app is great for navigation, saving places, and seeing where you’ve been.

Better 3D on the desktop
Yebbo on 2/19/2018
Comparing side by side, the desktop shows greater range in tilting the 3D image
Yes great but flawed
asaved on 2/19/2018
I also have had baby problems with this app not working while using other apps like music. I really REALLY wish it would tell me the mileage for multiple stops on the iOS version like it does for android. Please add the mileage to be shown for multiple stops.
Traffic
Feihggd on 2/19/2018
I wonder why they keep turning traffic off when you leave the app? It is so annoying to have to turn traffic on every time you open the app. Perhaps you could fix that again with the next update and make sure you leave that feature alone for future updates. This isn’t the first time this happens with updates.
Routing problem
Mid_1364 on 2/19/2018
Route disappear after few seconds and sometimes route displayed for only 1 seconds in iPhone 5s ios 10.3.3
It’s not working
Ayoubian on 2/19/2018
This version has a bug and it’s not working most of time, Sometimes I choose the destination and i tap to direction but the app doesn’t show the directions, Or sometimes at first show the direction but after a few seconds there isn’t the direction! I think Google map is the best. #### I have that problem yet in new version!
Request
Ozogirl on 2/19/2018
The new directions arrow icon on the main page is too small. I need travel time WITHOUT TRAFFIC. This used to be a feature and I don’t know why it was removed. I plan my travel in advance and rush hour or accidents throws the estimated time way off. I wish that when I search a town or city, the most frequent place I go to there came up first on the selection list.

Can no longer search in a specific area
kevinc1218 on 2/18/2018
Used to be able to go to a specific area and look for an airport near there. Now when I search for an airport in a specific area ie. Yunnan China, it takes me back to the airport near me in the US. This is beyond ridiculous and that is why it gets 1 Star. It used to not be that way. You manually search in an area and it provides results only for the local area in which you search. Unacceptable.
Used to like it
clint mcclure on 2/18/2018
I liked this app up until the most recent update.now my location does not change and has me on the map miles away from where I actually am and offline maps don’t work 50% of the time. Please fix this!
Ricks expert tree service
Shawn Munion on 2/18/2018
John and his crew came out and removed a huge oak in my, hard to access back yard. No problem for these guys, I was very impressed by their professionalism. They left my property looking much better than it did before they came. I highly recommend any tree or landscaping services this company provides to everyone.
Can’t add multiple stops anymore...

Throws away settings
thisnicknameistakenesntryagain on 2/18/2018
Recent versions randomly throw away settings. So I open the notification widget to get a better look at a traffic pattern and suddenly I no longer have a traffic overlay. Sometimes it throws away satellite view and reverts to plain road map. Randomly a third of the screen is wasted to show some noisey, irrelevant UI that I didn’t ask for.
Avoid tolls
Mepa84 on 2/18/2018
I go to settings and turn on avoid tolls, put in where I want to go and the number one route is a toll road. I go back in to settings and avoid tolls is off again, so I turn it on again. I close settings and then just to check I go back into settings and avoid tolls is off again!! What is going on?
Good app, needs more adjustments
单机出闪bug on 2/18/2018
It’s overall a very nice app and I use it as often as possible. However the recent version has a bug: no matter how many times I set “not saving recent searches”, it never keeps this setting.
Even navigation preview!!!
Sunyazdyshine on 2/18/2018
Why disable even navigation preview in Iran????????
Ouch They killed it
Raym no2 on 2/18/2018
Update! 2/18/17 After the updating to 4.45 I find Google killed a great app. I have an IPhone and even after reloading it a couple of times the update has made the app worthless. 1. The path is no longer “track up” and the path is heading to the bottom of the screen. 2. The screen freezes and the icon representing your location is always miles behind your actual location. 3. Sometimes the icon representing your location simply reverses and runs backwards? 4. At any given time the Icon representing your location will just float off of the programmed part. 5. Sometimes the sound announces the directions but more often than not there is no sound. There is just too much more to write in a review column! Did anyone at google even test this? Google is usually so dependable and so good with its programs.........what happened here. Do not update!!! I only hope someone does not get into b=a bad situation due to the latest update! I think the title tells it all. Lacking is the ability to get longitude and latitude for when driving in the country, and setting parking locations quickly. Finally, some of the best features are not as intuitive as some other offerings but it is usually in there some place. But, there are some neat features you cannot find in other packages. Best of all it gives you choices of routes and has never given bad directions or left me stranded. And google is improving the software all the time. Of the three packages I have in my phone this is my go to navigation app.
Not a fan of latest version
Tomeerr on 2/18/2018
No way to modify default settings. I don’t want traffic and restaurant ideas every time I open the app
Tolls
Alonzo199243 on 2/18/2018
Every time I toggle the avoid tolls switch, I go back and it’s untoggled again. Its the only switch that’s doing it too.
Please Turn off Default view w/ Traffic info
owbert on 2/18/2018
Please Turn off Default view with live Traffic information. It won’t stay turned off. Don’t want it. Too colorful and distracting. Let use choose. Let us turn it off and let it stay off.

Lat/long direction redirects to different place!
Md2911 on 2/18/2018
There are many applications that provides deep link to the Google Map app using lat/long. Lately, there has been a bug that is causing the app to redirect to random place after correcting the route. It is easily reproduceable. I am suprised the QA missed this bug
Fix the glitch!!!
lightistoobright on 2/18/2018
The most recent couple versions have the most annoying glitch when trying to change from car directions to bike, transit, etc. It doesn’t scroll smoothly like it used to, making it impossible to select the one you want!! I was hoping the glitch would be fixed in the latest update but no dice.
Great App
J_V_Nolan on 2/18/2018
Accurate, reliable and relevant to my needs.

Multiple destination feature removed?
Ant040186 on 2/17/2018
Where is the option to add multiple destination? It was there in the previous version and after recent update, it’s gone! Very disappointed..
Navigation is not working
نیسان on 2/17/2018
Yes, the navigation problem still exists, but happens a bit less often. Sometimes, it only shows ETA and doesn't show the path from source to destination.
