Please update maps with better navigation when a street coincides with another street on the reverse side of the address. Makes it real hard when navigating, and also, please have the arrow available straight away rather than that dot. Google maps is the most accurate, but these things make it harder when I'm trying to get to someone. Thanks!! Full Review

this app use to be my life saver, it would get me where I wanted without a problem. Now it keeps saying GPS lost all the time. Then i dont get anything again until I open the app, and it recycles. So frustrating. I hate that. Im driving, dont know where i am...lost, stressed out. Now i had to download another app to help me find where im going. I hope you guys can fix it, or tell me how too. I use to love this app. Full Review

Not being able to turn off night mode within Google maps is the stupidest thing I've ever seen implemented in a software package. Naturally, nobody would ever want to check a map of a country / region in another hemisphere when it was nighttime there. Well, that being said, my primary concern is that navigation in night mode is just onerous. Full Review

There is one major bug in maps. If my device default languge is english then I can search (voice search) from maps only in english. The directions are in english as well. If I change default languge to finnish then maps app works well but I cannot use google voice search any more if the default languge is not english. Could you add an option that changes the language (directions & voice search) only in the maps application? I like to keep my phone in english but it's impossible to search local streetnames with different languge. Full Review

Used to be a great app. Lately when I use it, it always pops up that maps is not responding, even though it is working fine. I have to press wait every 30 seconds so the dialog box goes away. The app is responding just fine, yet it still keeps popping up asking if I want to wait or close the app. Makes it almost unusable. Full Review

Google maps had taken me to the highway so many times to tell me that my destination is on the right from the highway. It is very unsafe for any driver to stop by the highway and look for your destination. Please fix this issue asap. The highway in question was the Gardener Express way West. Had to circle around to find the appropriate route and driveway. The app is great though. Love the turn by turn navigation feature. I prefer this app to Waze, loaded with ads. Another feature that will make this app fantastic is the "Arrive by" option when driving. It helps with the time we are supposed to leave to get to our destination considering ongoing traffic conditions. Full Review

Not sure if it's handset issue but the GPS doesn't start for several seconds after your vehicle has picked up speed. Quite frustrating. I'm using Pixel 2 btw. Full Review

Horrible for Uber drivers! Crashes several times a day and when it's not crashing it's lagging out so bad that don't tell you your turn is coming up until you're a hundred feet past it. also when you first turn it on and enter your destination it just sits there until you drive for like a half a mile then it catches up with you. At least on the S7 Edge Full Review

In case of a flyovers on the way, it should guide more precisely and in advance - If need to keep at left or right. Many times it don't guide or some time it guides at the last moment, when it becomes risky to change the lane so suddenly. Full Review

Thank you for getting back so promptly. Maps starting having problems Tuesday and continuing today. Unable to find my location, unable to recenter if I zone out/in on the map. Maps are up to date. Rebooted phone. Phone is 9 months old. Thank you in advance. Full Review

I stopped using Waze because their shortcuts have too many left turns areas without a 4 way stop or traffic light. Not only is they dangerous, they negate any time saving that was originally planned when on busy roads. And now Google maps is using these same routes. A 15 minute faster route added 10 minutes to my original time when it took 20 minutes to make one left turn due to cars not being able to cross 4 Lanes of traffic during rush hour. If the algorithms identified and utilized 4 way stops or traffic lights into reroutes, or at least considered cross traffic, this would be a 5 star product. Full Review

PLEASE, give us a way to keep the bottom panel closed by default. We can open it when we want it. It is infuriating always having to close it, so we can actually use the full sized map. Full Review

Useless. Wrong addresses given. When trying to correct them they don't respond to your review and edit. Been trying to correct my home address and they won't correct it or contact me to ask more info. Follow up 11/16/17.. So after this review they thought they'd act fast and correct they street I reported but of course the people they have working for them have no idea what they're doing. Do not trust this app for directions. You'll end up lost in the woods. Full Review

Double tap & hold to scroll recently changed!!!!! :( Previously double-tapping, holding, and scrolling zoomed right into the center of whatever I was viewing. Now it also pans. One-handed use is significantly better with the old gesture. I don't see the point in panning to a completely different section of the map when double-tapping and scrolling to zoom. I'm pretty upset about this change. This only seems to be happening in Maps. Other apps zoom as expected. Full Review

Great for discovering things, horrible as a satnav when you're driving. After the last updates it became really stupid at choosing routes (first it was really good). Changed to another navigator for when I'm driving, kept this for looking for things Full Review

Nexus 5, battery drain too fast when using for direction to work and traffic heads-up in the last 2 months. It used to consume 15% for 1 hour drive, now it 50%. I wonder should I switch to mircoG and its companions to reduce google play framework consumption Full Review

I often travel by driving motorbike. I have to use headphone and hear direction from GGmap. But it usually doesn't say anything although I set voice-direction. It made me keep moving forward wrong way without saying anything, even though I stopped driving, took out my phone and set my way again, it still didn't work. I got lost and wasted time just because of this app, at that time, I just wanted to kill who invented this stupid thing. I'm really disappointed with it. I really hate it. Full Review

Gmaps is excellent, but since the update, if I am playing music/radio in my incar media system, the music/radio stops when I go into gmaps (within the same system). Music/Radio comes back when I exit gmaps. Will stop me from using gmaps if I can't listen to the radio at the same time. Tia Full Review

The navigator helps me alot. Unfortunately sometimes it zoom out way too much w.hile driving which can lead me to take the wrong roads. Also i'm seriously tired that everytime i launch this damn app it asks me to turn on a whatever location option that i don't need. It keeps asking the samething everytime and i keep pressing on cancel everytime. Full Review

Google has completely ruin this app! Google says that they're worried about my safety by offering hands-free capability, however this application requires multiple clicks before you can get to the point where it actually navigate for you. This is dangerous! Full Review

A very useful app, it bring you directly to your destination without problems... sometimes it takes a lot of time to acquire the position but I don't know if this can be related to the software of the phone and not directly to the app Full Review

Good navigation. Would like an option to set navigation instruction language separately from device language. Pronounciation of town and street names in foreign languages is often cause of bepuzzlement rather than helpful. Pretty much all navigation software out there provides instruction language selection.

What Google didn't realize when they came up with local guides and allowing everyone to ask questions of them is, most people incorrectly assume they are asking a representative or employee of the business or place and not a guide. Full Review

Frequently large updates I would give you guys a full five stats for an accurate navigation app, but do you have to update the app with 22 MB worth of "bug fixes" every other day?! Cool it with the updates, or I'm going back to Waze. At least Waze lets me choose to avoid toll roads! Full Review

Sometimes the GPS directs me to make a left turn at a busy intersection where there's no traffic light (of course, I don't do that). Also, it should use local street names and numbers instead of country and state route numbers that nobody knows. Otherwise, it's a great app. Full Review

New updates render this app useless. Routes start upside-down, like keep map North is always on no matter what. Doesn't pick up which direction I'm driving for at least a 1/10th of a mile, not before I turn the wrong direction. If I'm asking for directions, why would I know which direction to go "towards" without any guidance. If you are an Uber driver, good luck making a ton of u-turns. Completely unusable since last few updates on Android. It's sad it doesn't even know why direction I'm facing starting a route anymore. I expected more from Google. Waze still works perfectly. I can't believe how awful this has been for me. All routes start with me heading south on the map, as if I have force North view on. After I start driving a bit it changes back but not after I have to sit there looking at the map trying to figure out which way to turn since my location is off on Google Maps 100% of the time now.

I love the navigation and it is one of the best maps in playstore but only one thing you should add is two-wheeler navigation, because many a times a navigation takes you to different toll booths, where only 4 wheelers are allowed and we have to follow the car route because there is no option for a bike.. It would be great if u add that, It seriously a big problem which me and my friends and many other people's face.. Hope you look into it and add the two wheeler features for navigation....
