What happened?

This has been my go to GPS app for years. Since the last update, it has taken me to the wrong address twice, it is slow to respond, and recalculates a lot more than before. Please fix.
Still Lacking a Fluid & Consistent Experience
JJIV:) on 10/22/2017
There are three main issues that I have with this app that make it not very good to use. 1:Lack of accuracy when it comes to what direction I’m going. At least half of the time when O start moving it shows me going in the wrong direction therefore has the directions going the wrong way. This is absolutely terrible when in an area you don’t know or are in a parking lot with no street names to reference. 2:This app consistently gets the end destination wrong. Whether it be that it ends me on the street behind my destination or in a large plaza saying I’ve arrived. Also, the directions don’t take into account other entrances to plazas and will have you drive way out of the way to the plazas main entrance when one could save a few minutes by not having to wait at a red light to turn in. 3:No speed limit indicator. Please bring this feature back. Apple Maps has it, come on Google. It is a very convenient feature! The directions and routes for the most part are good. However the UI is not the best nor are the directions displayed very intuitive nor informative sometimes. If Apple Maps had better execution I’d use them all day. However your app is NOT good. Since your directions are better and that’s what I need, you eek the competition by a hair...
They fix problems quickly
Bleuler on 10/22/2017
This app is great for what it aims do. Its implementation is very good, and it earns very high marks for what it does. The best part is that it keeps improving, and bugs are fixed soon enough. I sometimes get ideas about making it even better; in time, they often materialize without any mention. I’ve used every GPS app in the Apple store and every GPS device you can buy on the market. You can count on the makers of Google Maps to reliably rise to the task EVERY TIME. It’s the best.
Cant figure out basic things after the update
Migg137 on 10/22/2017
Cant figure out how to add "no tollways" as an option. Cant figure out how to add a different address other than location as starting point for directions. Please fix this, thanks!
Terrible Version Update!
The guy who got this on 10/22/2017
The latest update of Google maps has completely broken the app. It can't detect my current location, completely forgets to tell me my next direction when navigating etc. I wish there was a way to revert the update. It's absolutely atrocious.
veejan on 10/22/2017
Doing good job Keep it up
Love it when it can find the address!
Lucymelson on 10/22/2017
I like it when it actually shows me the address! They don't like it when none appears!
Great food
dondiva876 on 10/22/2017
Great food, but ok service. My group had to keep asking for things like water, napkins etc. had a salad and didn’t get any dressing, had to wait another 5-10 Mins for my dressing.
Znemz on 10/22/2017
However, there is a bug in Landscape mode for the IPHONE. It seems the bounds is calculated incorrectly (undefined / divide by zero?). While navigating, if you press the alt route button (fork). The map zooms out to a ridiculous zoom level that provides no help. This does not happen portrait mode.
Additional features keep it the best
Monstevr on 10/22/2017
But it is deeply flawed. Most importantly, users NEED to be allowed to update road closures because often a city's highway department refuse to do that part of their jobs, and then you're stuck in traffic for fewer than zero good reasons. First world problems, yes, but everything about living in a prison like the Greater New York Metropolitan Area is, so apps that proclaim to take the edge off that nightmare should probably be good at not making that edge sharper.
It is sure better than Apple Maps
ChamonixClimber on 10/22/2017
Better & Better all the time
Great location!!!
aurelpope89 on 10/22/2017

Please fix BT audio
Tolgabayik on 10/22/2017
Awesome but BT functionality seems to be broken in the latest version. Car BT receiver pauses during navigation but does not speak the directions on iOS 11
Missing favorites!!!!
Weekendusers on 10/22/2017
Please fix the missing home and work from displaying automatically!!! I I used to be able click the blue go button and it my home/work would be on top. I use this everyday and don't want to type the words every time. And why is the direction history now showing old information.
Awesome sauce
Corn taylor on 10/22/2017
I love this app. Especially the contributions part of it.
Latest update is awful.
darktiki101 on 10/22/2017
They've removed your saved placed from the destinations. It now populates based on what you've searched recently and what Google thinks you might want. It's not very fast or good at determining what I want.
Tazz1964 on 10/22/2017
Since update this app takes you off the wall routes says 1 day 6 hours for 136 mile trip
Best in class
quant47 on 10/22/2017
When it comes to navigation maps in my daily life there’s nothing better than google maps.
Easy direction to anywhere
Anjum T on 10/22/2017
I use it all the time because I can see traffic view before I drive
long dong duh on 10/22/2017
Good place kinda crowded when busy due to some facility but decent food service is kinda slow but not bad food
Honestly, it's a map app
Bxndjahsbisjshshhejaisjhdhs on 10/22/2017
If you don't like apple maps, this is the was to go. If you have one on you phone, you don't really need it. I like google maps because it's easy to use and gets me places, not much else to it
Bring a trailer.....Bring a 4 horse trailer!!

STILL NOT FIXED! Important info for developers!
skibafedor on 10/22/2017
Still not fixed! Google maps developers! Hope you're read reviews! Important request from all local guides community: IMPROVE PICTURES UPLOADING FUNCTIONAL! In current version you have to scroll down for thousands pictures from your library and trying to find right one. Please, add support of albums (standard iOS dialogue) It will help local guides. When we write a review we need to add a pictures, but it's really non-user-friendly scrolling down to looking for pictures. Will be better if it work with standard iOS pictures selection with all your albums. Thanks!
App on my phone
Nickmac21 on 10/22/2017
Seriously how can I google something on the internet and ask an address, have google maps find it then ask for directions and get told to download the app when I have the app
Awesome service
Kiana7782 on 10/22/2017
Food is great he stayed open to feed us!
Unable to copy GPS coordinates
CometWaves on 10/22/2017
I really wish I could save GPS coordinates. It is possible to save “plus codes”, but the line above is what I want to copy into my other map apps like topo maps. Love the maps in every other way.
Google timeline problem
S@BB!R on 10/22/2017
I've tried a lot to activate timeline on google map at my iPhone 6 Plus, however failed to do so. Though location from my mobile is activated always, and also work good with android app. Please fix this issue.
Fix this please!!
Irisstbl on 10/21/2017
Been using google maps before it was cool. 😎 now that iOS 11 has come out Apple has made some major improvements that has me using them now. One thing I ask that I think is way overdue from you guys is speed limits. Please add them to our routes. It’s the little things that matter. :)
Much lost on latest upgrade
Anderld47 on 10/21/2017
10/18/17 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?" Critical info. You're 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. 10/20/17 You're continuing to direct users through roads that are closed by fires in upper Napa Valley Calif into Lake County Calif. I would be more understanding except Apple Maps is getting it right and directing around closures. You've always been my goto map app....not anymore.
Not a fan of the update
LizAnne24 on 10/21/2017
Stop messing with the interface! Messes me up for days/weeks, and then it gets changed again a few months later. Pick something and stick with it!
Still constantly hitting
_M_F_ on 10/21/2017
Location button on accident while zooming out. Move it somewhere else already. Already told you about the problem months ago. Still far better than apple maps which I’d like to delete entirely.
No es realmente suficiente
Garciapalacios84 on 10/21/2017
Cuando yo le de cinco estrellas a google map será cuando agreguen rutas para camiones mientras tanto sigue siendo un mapa.... Para los desarrolladores de la app piensen un poco en eso. Gracias 😥 When I give google map five stars it will be when they add routes for trucks meanwhile it is still a simple map.... for app developers think about that. Thank you 😥
Scatterblak on 10/21/2017
Awful. Can't keep up with your vehicle-also, it gets very confused whenever there are more than two roads running along beside each other. If you're interested in a GPS application that will continually tell you that you're on the service road while you're sailing down interstate at 75 mph, this is what you're looking for. Also, don't think about getting off the road to get a cheeseburger-there's no way to get Google maps to shut up for five minutes while you get some food-it will continually tell you where to go what to do and how to get there while you're in the drive-through. All you can do is shut it down, and then reenter your destination in the tragically arcane interface that was obviously built by engineers instead of people who know how to design a UI.
Interface designers are idiots!
Tsykal78 on 10/21/2017
Great app. but what kind of idiot sitting there and changing the interface back and forth every year. The same buttons on the bottom were exactly the same way as now 2 years ago!!! Why did you change it again? How is it better? Just keep it the way it is finally god sake.
Great google maps
Njdkfndodlikkkkkkk on 10/21/2017
Best mapping ever! I'm a local guide, highly recommend, usually always accurate to.
Great pizza
Kevinv83 on 10/21/2017
Was camping with my son in the area and had it delivered. Their sweet sauce pizza was amazing.
New update user unfriendly
DelaforceRacing on 10/21/2017
I have always been very happy with Google Maps. The new update however adds a bunch of new options when all you're trying to do is put in an address and click and go. I personally don't want to have to deal with that while I'm driving.The last version was perfect. This new one is obviously a result of overthinking technology geeks thinking they're doing something good. The clincher is the stupid, asinine exit button that has been added to the bottom of your driving menu so that you can accidentally hit it well you're driving just to have to start all over again with the whole time wasting endeavor. Congrats google on being dumber than I thought any app developers could be.
Curious Navigation: To vs From
rod.musselman on 10/21/2017
Had to visit my Post Office to pick up a package. Driving their was most challenging, given the indirect path, combined with frequent iPhone bounces. Granted, the current version of iOS is only a transitional release, but I only experience this instability during use of Google Maps, obviously combined with cellular Internet access during my journey. That my navigation was SO MUCH BETTER on my return, I wonder why that exact same route wasn't used as I first journeyed to my destination. Wouldn't the best route be the same both ways?
effddeezxy on 10/21/2017
Buggy and useless update
Javad Abdollahi on 10/21/2017
On version 4.38, When I choose my destination, it says you arrived to your location 😐!!!
Love the new update
Dissatisfied user 8897 on 10/21/2017
Used to have to click 2 or 3 buttons to start a route, now simply load the address, click start and BAM you're on your way. Very convenient, especially when behind the wheel and you get sent to a different job. The one thing I would like to see improvement on is when I get my schedule emailed to me, I can copy the address from the native mail app, double click and sometimes at the bottom there will appear a "get directions to -- in google maps". Clicking on that loads maps, but it always says "can't find a way there". I can paste the address in fine, but it would be nice if this would work. A big improvement would be if a press and hold on the address would allow me to press "open in google maps" instead of the native apple maps would be great.
Street view
Efkgjfjti on 10/21/2017
I just updated my Google Maps app for iOS 11 and now Street view is gone why is this?
Bring back the feature to swipe Ahead
K-EA$Y on 10/21/2017
This app used to be great until they took the option out look ahead of your route by swiping to the right. BRING BACK THAT FEATURE
Great for Commuting
ulises alatriste on 10/21/2017
Using this app to know bus and train schedules is a real pleasure: fast, accurate and real time updates.
