They got me what I wanted in less than 10 min and answered all questions
Maps
Sandy789 on 10/19/2017
I have had a lot of problems with this app. I put in an address and it wants to sant me thousands of miles away and sometimes overseas. I would not give this app even one star. This app has a lot of problems.
Inaccurate
BBurnett75 on 10/19/2017
This latest update caused major inaccuracies. The traveling orientation will not stay in the “up” position, even though it is selected in preferences. It routinely “locates” me on nearby streets and not on the street that I’m actually on. If it does locate range actual location, it selects new routes periodically. In short, this is a update full of bugs. Do not update.

Mike was very helpful
CherokeeHallie on 10/19/2017
We were traveling through from texas and I was looking for a pillow sham to match my set I bought in Texas. I call first and Mike was very silly to help, and very friendly ...... But the SMELL going into the building was so Bad I was gagging.... what the heck???? Can’t be a good working environment...
Love app but...
tjzzone on 10/19/2017
The latest update caused problems today. The arrow is constantly rotating, spinning, and is just off center of the path indicated. It was a tighter implementation the other day. I am out of town this week, and rely on app heavily for traveling in a new city. 4 days this week the app has been great. Today, after the recent update, it was ‘rerouting’, sending me the wrong way on a marked one-way street, and just having a difficult time keeping up with my path. Help!
Was good, now not as good
rmaytee on 10/19/2017
Apple maps has pulled forward in having a speed limit in the corner. My biggest gripe is, when I used to hit the “go” button, it would show my home and my work for a quick click and go. Now I have to type that in.
What the hell
spare me the endless ads!!!! on 10/19/2017
Seriously what is Google maps problem??? Where is the route planning feature of Google maps??? I used to be able to plug-in eight addresses shuffle them around to find the most efficient route and be on my way now it’s gone what is the friggin point, thanks google maps team for making GM useless...
Much lost on latest upgrade
Anderld47 on 10/19/2017
What happened to showing multiple routes? Many times I'd like to chose a different route, either because of scenery or facilities along the way. How about a toggle showing "various" and "fastest?" You're still routing traffic over closed roads post North Bay fires. And three days ago I was directed up a "Not A Through Street" and onto a private drive that someone had named. This coupled with being directed onto a 4 wheel drive "pole-line" road (thank gawd I was in my Jeep) in August (previous app version) has started eroding the confidence I used to have in your maps.
Widget Change
icuragoose on 10/19/2017
I brought my review down from 5 stars. The "Travel Times" widget for your places that are labeled "home" and "work was handy because it used to tell you which route to take (in my case I have three different routes I can take to work, depending on traffic). Now, it just tells you the time it will take, but you have to open the app to see the best route. It sounds small, but it's a big irritation to me and it belongs in the widget.
Data hog, missing some functionality
avk45 on 10/19/2017
This is my top app for route planning. Unfortunately, I recently switched from Android to iPhone and I am disappointed to see that the iPhone app does not show mileage for a multi-stop route. This feature was removed from the Android app at some point but restored about 9 months ago. Please put it on the iPhone app! As good as it is for route planning, I never use it for navigation because it uses 3-5x more data than other options.
New UI
Agustin B. on 10/19/2017
Great upgrade. Now we are talking about UI improvement. Great job guys.
Works mostly
dakot2315 on 10/19/2017
It works correctly most of the time, however sometimes it’s really dumb like when I’m looking for a restaurant it will tell me the closest one is 7 miles away when there’s a jack in the box .5 miles away. And then I was in Santa Barbara looking for a gas station, I chose directions for a Shell station, and it took me to someone’s house.
Why
Darkotahc on 10/19/2017
Where is the little x on the bottom where i could move multiple stops around a hate this
Expand
Jamone paul on 10/19/2017
We need a truck version now, come on google we know u can do it
Hard to use
Erichsape on 10/19/2017
Hard to use. Navigate to a place need too many steps to set than previous version. I highly recommend the UX designer to study more usability classes in school, and then go to google to re design this new UI!!!!
Needs one feature
Gom23 on 10/19/2017
Needs to have speed limit posted on the screen like any other navigations.
Love it!
EvE19_9 on 10/19/2017
I have to have this app! I never use maps from Apple can't even compare them!
Love new updates with “exit” vs x
tle2 on 10/19/2017
Loving this new update so far, it was so hard to exit out of map with a little “x” on previous version. And now I can clearly pick directions or start to drive, seemed like this GUI is designed by someone really know how to use map in while he is in the car ! Thanks!!
Home and Work buttons disappeared
killer7326 on 10/19/2017
Please add the "Home" and "Work" buttons back to the top when choosing directions. Having to type in "H" or "W" and waiting for the results to come back is a waste of time.
No good
Vladimirchgo on 10/19/2017
I don’t like this red button exit. It’s looks like not google map no more. It’s Apple map
I’m on my way always
ShaeMack on 10/19/2017
Great Details, good with traffic slow downs as well
Good app
goat tick on 10/19/2017
Landed me in the middle of a really bad neighborhood. Thugs tried to carjack my car, knocked out a tooth.. I shot one of the assailants in the stomach. Other then that minor snafu I liked google maps but now I have switched map apps for safety..
Love the new Navigation "Exit" button
Felipegonz on 10/19/2017
Thanks so much for the so needed exit button. Now please add live speed limit like waze and apple maps have. Thank you :)
Bring back direction swiping
Frisky Dingos on 10/18/2017
the latest update removes the ability to swipe left and right to see the list of directions on your route. Now you only get a pop-up menu that is far less intuitive and easy to use.
Thanks google maps!
Lu Thit on 10/18/2017
Great application for me and every traveler. Sometimes, we have a trouble that we don't know exactly that way we want. At that time , that apps helped me. So thanks again.
In reliable mapping
RGSGKS on 10/18/2017
Although I allow Google maps use my location, when I switch for any of my 4 Ride Share apps, to google maps, it can’t seem to ise locate my exact location to start the trip. I have to click on starting point & select “location” to began the pickup trip. Doesn’t happen every time, more times than not. Also, it use to be much more reliable in selecting the best short route which should include traffic lighted intersections. Very annoying to the riders that know their surroundings & we, as drivers have to depend on google selection of the route. Sometimes winds through neighborhoods instead of a direct route to the Main Street we are winding through the back streets
It keeps crashing!!!
Ichaudry on 10/18/2017
Ever since I upgraded to ios 11 my app keeps crashing!!! So annoying! I think its a ploy by apple just sayin. Please fix.
Why is this button that brings the map to your current location under my thumb?
Abassplaya on 10/18/2017
Seriously I thought people that work at google were smart. Move the “current location” button to the top so I don’t keep accidentally strike it with my above average thumb.
Wrong Location for Directions
Eraw on 10/18/2017
Until a couple of weeks ago, Google Maps worked great. I'm visiting Australia now. Maps accurately shows my location. But, when I ask for directions, it starts from hundreds of miles from where I am. If I'm getting directions to a store a half mile away, it will tell me it will take 27 hours to drive there. Pretty useless now.
Location could not be determined
akgraham7 on 10/18/2017
I keep getting this message! Since google maps cannot determine my current location, the app is pretty much useless. I have checked my Location preferences under Privacy. They are correct. I am still using 10.3.3 What is the problem??

Used to be great!! What happened??
Fk.1022 on 10/18/2017
Please fix the app!!!!! This app USED!!! To be great!!! I loved it. Used it all the time...the best part was i could use it even without data....all my saved maps were great! But now i hate using it...none of the streets line up...i am i like 3 blocks away and it still has me on the street i started with! Its the worst!
Used to be better
Rocky12179 on 10/18/2017
When driving on the expressway, it sometimes routes me off the expressway, then back on at the same exit or one farther down my route. For example when traveling South on I35, it took me off at exit 319 and brought me back the next exit. I just stayed on the expressway and there were no problems. I like the it lets me search for hotels, restaurants and things along my route. I switched from iPhone maps to Google Maps years ago, but the primary function is to route me where I want to go and Google Maps is not doing it. Going back to iPhone maps until you get it fixed

Very kind and willing to help
Great Update
S.H 1234 on 10/18/2017
Thanks for updating and fixing the freeze and closure now the App works better and I depend on it fully because I am travelling and its accurate about places
Great navigation... Only if you have unlimited data
LLCoolJonny on 10/18/2017
Minus 2 stars because the app forgets the original route when I'm going out of wifi area without data service, and GMaps attempts to reroute. This may change an originally toll-free route to a toll one - all without notice! Also, when out on the road and cellular data is off, and then I turn data on, the app takes at least 30 seconds before reconnecting/rerouting. This issue is very problematic when I'm Turing data briefly on to search for coffee/gas-stations along the route. Another issue is that the app consumes too much data - probably from downloading pictures associated with Point Of Interest's. My monthly data usage usually goes up to 70 MB's, and 100MB's for each roadtrips. It would be great if there's an option to reduce data usage for pictures.
Calorie counter
John get on 10/18/2017
Why would you remove the calorie counter just because some snowflake was offended because of it? Are you going to remove the car feature because someone that takes the bus gets offended? How about the bicycle one too? It's just as offensive to some person that might think you think they should exercise. Stop cowing down to every super sensitive wacko out there.
Google maps Think their gods now
Bareonass on 10/18/2017
I’m about to have nothing to do with them ever again! especially if they don’t contact me! since I cannot contact them!!! I just tried to find a contact us somewhere on their website and there is none!! SO I just lost all my respect for Google!!! Why do you think you have to improve something that’s perfect? I loved you guys! I loveed you so much! I swore by you! the last half a dozen update’s, you’ve been screwing things up! making them over complicated and re-designing stuff to where you have to reteach yourself how do you something you already know how to do! WHY? put it back to the way it was!!! please‼️‼️‼️
Please include an update for speed limits
Kobby_apple on 10/18/2017
One of my favorites navigation apps. I would have given a five star only if it could show the speed limits on interstates and highways. Hope to see that in coming updates.

I wish the location services was quicker and more accurate.
Issue w local address
Marcelpl on 10/18/2017
The local address got confused when routing to a destination is performed
Route options.
keivinr on 10/18/2017
The route options should appear in all moment on the principal window. If you deselect all the options in route options this one disappears of the principal window. Please fix it.
Map not refreshing
lisam64 on 10/18/2017
Google maps used to be nice when it came to locating a friend, but since iOS 11..it is giving the wrong location or its not updating at all.
Indispensable
ammoor28 on 10/18/2017
I really don’t know how my life would be without Ctrl+Z & google map :)
Latest update no good
TempleRunOverCliff on 10/18/2017
Used to be my go to map. But since the latest update it's very difficult to add multiple stops to the map... wishing this feature was easier to find.
Way to give into people who think fat is healthy

Bhk5928 on 10/18/2017
VERY disappointed that Google Maps no longer gives options on route selections since the latest update. Makes it almost useless.
Works alright
