It’s mind boggling how many problems this app has, and how amazing it could have been.

Never disappointed with google maps!

Love this app!
Dumpster fire
Drew doggy dogg on 4/20/2018
What used to be a perfectly good app now takes 5 minutes figure out where you are and give you the right directions. Way to take it and turn it into a dumpster fire. Idiots
Best instruction ever

Better than all others

Doesnt show direction
its.farshad on 4/20/2018
When i mark a place on the map and press direction, it just shows the map from above. No direction at all.
An app I used to love
The Battlecat 79 on 4/20/2018
I switched to the iPhone after years of android ownership because I was tired of the overall bugginess and lame update cycle of google's OS, but I still loved some of google's apps. So when I got my first iPhone, google maps was probably my second download after it's search engine app. It was my go-to nav app for directions and finding restaurants and other things around me for close to 10 years. But after being run in circles (literally) trying to find numerous places over the last few years I've finally decided I was done. I've uninstalled this app. It's not even worthy of being a backup option on my phone anymore, for any reason. 1-star is too high a rating for the current incarnation of this app. I've downloaded another app and will use apple maps as a secondary option if need be.
Copy destination address
Super fizz on 4/20/2018
I found it is impossible to copy destination address or coordinates in navigation route option screen
Never really works...
H.E. Noyes on 4/20/2018
I hate that it doesn’t follow where I’m going. It just kind of jolts to where I am. Really helpful for reading the directions - but when driving kind of hard to read and drive. Not the best - I prefer waze
Bad direction, flaw or bug with searching
Mujjuman on 4/20/2018
Ok so I make Cross state and cross country trips almost weekly-monthly. I use the google maps app to keep track of travel time remaining (ETA), Miles remaining, traffic (very useful!!), general directions, and how much longer till next exit or turn. I make the same trips every week so I know the route already, but I keep my google maps open for the reason above. I like it more than Waze and more than Apple maps. During my most recent trip (2 days ago), google maps went crazy on me and started telling me to take the next exit, when I knew I had to keep driving on the current road for 15 more miles. I got very confused, and didn’t know why or what was happening. It kept telling me to make a u-turn, take a different street, and go the opposite direction of my destination. When I finally reached my destination, I checked the map and for some reason it has assumed I was trying to go to a different but similar address. I could have sworn that I used the same address that I use every week, one that I have saved correctly on my maps. So why was it showing me something else?? I closed the app, and then tried to ask google maps for directions again as a test to see if it was a temporary glitch (I was already at my intended destination) and it kept getting confused with the wrong but similar address even though I manually inputted the correct address in the search bar or used the address that I had saved in google maps. Then I found that if I type in the address AFTER I click for directions, it will send me to the correct address. This is repeatable and shows the same thing every time. I never had this issue before. Please google, fix this weird glitch in the address-mapping system. Contact me for more info. I’ll give you the address so you can test this out for yourself.
It was working yesterday!
Taylor guerriero on 4/20/2018
The app was workig yesterday! And now when I open it, it just closes on me!!! Google, what's going on!!!!!! I love this app! It's the only Map I use!!!! I need it!!!!! Please fix this!!!!!
Voice commands
kcraig02 on 4/20/2018
The voice commands start in mid sentence which is both annoying and useless! This is especially true when navigating totally by voice commands when visual is not an option to do the placement of the phone. I had used this app previously in a different vehicle and didn’t have this issue. Not sure why have it now but until this issue is corrected I will no longer be using it. (Previous vehicle was Kia Optima now using in Buick Encore) if this helps at all.
PinkPCBuilds on 4/20/2018
Dear Google, Please update with Class 8 vehicles and route restrictions for us making a living on the road! THAT would make this app Stupendous! 😁

HoopCoach78 on 4/20/2018
Too many bugs in the last few versions of the app. Please improve the reliability. I’ve come to expect much more from a Google product and this app leaves me disappointed. Three issues: (1) after putting in an address for directions, the app updates and two buttons appear at the bottom of the page - Start (# mins) and Directions. When I tap on either button, the app doesn’t respond sometimes. It appears frozen. This issue doesn’t happen all the time so it might be tougher to track down. (2) if I’m able to tap Start and the app gives directions, it often doesn’t update to my current location or it gets stuck at the beginning of my drive. The app is useless at this point. I’ll try to kill it and start over but sometimes that doesn’t work. I never had this issue until 6-9 months ago, not sure what changed. I have the same phone. (3) the notifications that used to show up and predict my drive time at certain points in the day were not helpful. My destinations change from time to time. Anyway, thanks for the follow up. I hope this info will help your engineering teams. We will all benefit from the fixes. Thanks in advance.

Crashes on open. The only way to send a crash report is THROUGH THE APP
Kusunokima on 4/20/2018
The only way to send a crash report is by opening the app, which crashes before you can send one. Do YOU see the problem here?
Accidentally tapped

Worst than sewer
Fireducks on 4/19/2018
You are google, you are the brand. Most used app in day to day life. People trust you blindly with out any reason. But you costed me my job, I was going for an job today in santa clara California to 3250 mission blvd, Dump maps asks me to take a right turn to san thomas creek trail, but they is right turn to take one, I was like roaming for an hour to find the san thomas creek trail, lost my job finally,, Still decided to find if i was make some mistake in taking the correct turn. Finally after an hour of roaming at nvidia office, Decided to open up iphone maps, To took me to my destination in 5 mints but no use i lost my job. You dumb google maps tech team, do your work rather than sleeping at your office, I ask if you are in hurry to office dnt trust google maps. Good bye google maps
Not for navigation!
Ldkdolsnsbxgkdld on 4/19/2018
It’s simply way too many errors for navigating app. For instance: forcing you to turn in opposite direction or making U-turn where is not allowed and such mistakes when you just want to throw your cellphone through the windshield. Use proper navigation app or device, this is just not for that and I don’t see any whatsoever improvements in years!!!
Selling out!
Ezo Sresyek on 4/19/2018
I doubt anyone at google ever has to take a bus or they would not have traded their soul to Uber and Lyft and taken away the most important feature on the bus routes — multiple routes and times to choose from. Suddenly you only get one choice which leaves a lot of room for the driving apps filling the screen to make them more money, because we all know they really need more money. I have never liked Apple Maps, but I was forced to use it over this bus issue and was pleasantly surprised that they offered endless route and time choices. I would give this app five stars if they change back to the way it was when they thought about people first and not money.
I love google maps
cool_spring on 4/19/2018
The best thing is you can use offline mode and download maps of places your going to or of a daily route
Needs county overlays
jerdagain on 4/19/2018
It really needs an option to show a little more map detail like county information
mingoeandc on 4/19/2018
This app was great. Let me know where we were at all times. Also helped with restaurants
I think about alternatives every time I use
Crom1978 on 4/19/2018
Please stop adding stuff! The little tab at the bottom when you open up, the stupid route countdown window that obscured where you’re trying to go, it’s all bad. And why is the gps tracking getting worse? Please strip it down to where it was like 10 years ago but with better resolution and it would be perfect. As it is apple maps looks better and better.
Since updates, doesn’t seem to know where I am in relation to the mat
Mama Szrama on 4/19/2018
since I updated, it seems like the app is completely confused about what direction I am facing when I use the app. it also no longer will recalculate as I am going in real time— it will continue to tell me directions from whatever the location was when I first started driving... because it doesn’t know what direction I’m going it will often tell me the exact opposite of what I need to be doing which is very frustrating and confusing when in an unfamiliar location.

Missing Interstate and other Highway Exit Numbers
Traveler1937 on 4/19/2018
We use Google Maps extensively while traveling. In particular, Interstate and other highway exit numbers were invaluable while finding restaurants, gas stations, etc. For some reason, these have been removed from Google Maps. Please reinstate them!!
Used to be amazing
SDPatel12 on 4/19/2018
Used to be perfect. Full of bugs now. Come google. Get it together
A problem with showing direction
Navidorious on 4/19/2018
Lovely app, but sometimes when I push the direction button, it shows the blue line to the destination only for a moment and then the blue line disappears almost immediately.

Best Dentist Ever!
Mama loves her family on 4/19/2018
For the first time in my life, I actually look forward to my dental appointments. Dr. Ransdell and his staff are committed to quality and customer satisfaction. I no longer avoid dental appointments because I now have a dentist who does superior dental work and who makes sure that his patients are pain-free. Thank you, Dr. Ransdell. I am very grateful for you and for your wonderful staff.

Very handy app from Google. Used it al the time in Brooklyn from Airport to hotel to games. Recommended!
Now we talk
SR-79 on 4/19/2018
GM said turn right after KFC :-)
Jjcifnfjci on 4/18/2018
Does’t talk as many times as I tried to figure it out. Not user friendly. You also can’t copy and paste into iPhones threat talking map because it takes the code and your screwed. Just an annoying app, to us.
What happened??
Fun Captain on 4/18/2018
I loved this app. Hands down the best navigational app there was. Then after a recent update I can’t seem to get it working correctly. It often looks as if my vehicle is driving backwards or sideways, and spins around or freezes if I am not going above 50 mph. Used to work perfectly (5 star worthy), so I hope it gets fixed soon!!!
Love it!
FL Cookie on 4/18/2018
No matter where we go or what state we’re traveling in, we use google maps for directions. Very easy to use.

No construction zones on maps
Great service
woking hard on 4/18/2018
Today at work our garage door wouldn’t open so my boss calls overhead door of Lexington to come out and repair it. Within an hour or so the repairman (Bradley)showed up to check it. He was polite and very much a professional. He had the door working in less than 20 min. If your ever in a bind with your garage door not properly working I highly suggest to call for overhead door to complete the job in a safely and in a timely manner. He even took the time to check our other doors for us. Great service. Thanks to Bradley, our Door in now working again.
Very good

Directions were great and precise.

This app sometimes takes me too closed streets but other than that it’s a great app
Needs work
Caprisona on 4/18/2018
While this navigation app seems to be one of the better ones available, it still needs some work. I just can’t understand how I can google something on my husbands laptop and then see ads for those same items in my social media apps; but then, google maps doesn’t seem to learn my frequently visited places and offer those as initial choices. Rather it suggests places that are closer. While I understand this method to a degree, I still don’t think it’s the most logical way of operating...
