I have been using GPS in my vehicles since 2007, so I have dealt with a number of different systems for over ten years now, and I have spent lot of money on navigation systems installed in vehicles (eight different vehicles over that period). I still use a built-in system in my present vehicle. But increasingly—and since iPhone 5 and iPhone 6—I have been depending on Google Maps to route me to specific destinations, and using my car’s BlueTooth connection system to provide continuous directions through my car’s sound system. I have found it extremely reliable, and I certainly have appreciated that it is constantly updated and free. As most newer cars can connect with their owners’ smartphones now—and as most smartphones can be charged in the car—I highly recommend this application to everyone who has to do a lot of driving!

I've been getting a ton of use out of this widget. Living in NYC, it's amazing to have bus arrival times available in real time without having to rely on the MTA or poke around inside the app. Just this past weekend, the widget picked up that a bus was 4 minutes away, when the MTA said it was 14 minutes away! My big suggestion to make this widget even better would be to have the ability 'pin' your most used transit options so it's not necessarily location based. For example, my closest subway station is 3 blocks away, so my phone doesn't list it as an option for me. If I had a subway countdown clock available in my widgets at all times, that would significantly improve my commute!

This app has always been an indispensable tool for me. But with the addition of live traffic (in my city) and custom labels recently, it's become an invaluable navigation app. Thank you Google for this app. I generally don't rate and review applications, but I just had to give the new Google Maps the 5 stars it so rightly deserves. UPDATE: Took away one star because navigation, location-sharing, and review-writing don’t work in my country. Another star because directions stopped working, too! I hope it’s just a bug and not another one of Google’s arbitrary policies of disabling features for certain countries. Come on Google. DON’T BE EVIL! BTW, Apple Maps is much more accurate and detailed than Google Maps now. If Google decides to disable its one saving grace, i.e. directions, altogether, I might as well use the superior Apple Maps.

The functionality may be there, but it's either hard, or redundant, or straight up confusing to use at times █ "Satelite and Traffic" shows as a legacy option in the sidebar, only pointing to the N E W location when tapped, It has been this way for almost a year, to my knowledge - Yet, "Explore" is redundant, but is fully functional both on the sidebar or the map itself █ "Explore food and drinks" is incomplete - usually, when trying to use it is because I want to go somewhere RIGHT NOW, so showing a "closed" and "closing soon" advices on the cards would be incredibly useful, rather than having to open each and every location █ the top-left "back" button is inconsistent, at least in "Settings", sometimes it may bring me back to the map, sometimes only one step back

Had chopped beef BBQ sandwich in savory sauce and side of French fries, although the awesome server recommended the tater tots. Wish I had opted for tater tots but lots of hot French fries. Had the combo which came with soft drink for iced tea. Then I overheard y’all about their homemade banana pudding. Got it to go but was so good I stayed and ate the whole thing which was piled high, Well worth the under the $10. large combo. Actually, the ladies room was decorated by a lady. Even had wicker love seat with cushion and being we’re going through freezing weather, the ladies room was so warm that I wanted to lay down on the love seat for the night. Well worth giving or a try.

I use it almost everyday and I love updating the map that’s adding new places that does not exist on the map, making amendment to the existing ones and adding images. My concern is that some approvals takes a very long time and I will like to know why that’s the case because after adding a new place I will need it to be approved before adding the pictures I took of the place. When this takes a very long time I end up losing trace of the pictures I took to be updated on the map. I will also like to suggest if a search can be included in the edit area to help go through the items there quickly. I hope my concerns raised will be attended to thank you!

I tried to like Apple maps. I truly do enjoy the simplicity and the ability to just tell Siri where I want to go. It’s also nice to be able to lock your phone and see updates from the screen saving at least some battery life. However Apple maps is months-years out of date. This is where google really shines is they are quick on updating things as roads change and I’ve never had a wrong address. Only wish you could use Siri and get directions on this by default.

I appreciated the prompt response from the developer and the quick repair. The issue listed below no longer appears to be an issue. I would have provided a 5 star rating, however, there are times when the traffic information is not as up to date as the current scenario. It is still one of my top two apps for navigating heavy and quickly changing urban/city traffic. I would recommend it to a friend. The traffic layer must be reapplied upon opening the app after recent update. There's no way to make the traffic layer a permanent layer option. Do not update.

Before the previous update my Google Maps ran perfectly. Then the update came and I thought “OK. Improvements on something that that works perfectly fine. Maybe it could be better. After all, we could all use improvements in our lives.” Well, I was wrong!!! I travel a lot and the updates are a pain in the *#%! It shows that I am in the middle of somewhere I am not. It takes forever to figure out where I am at. Comes up in a language I don’t speak. And is late giving me real time info. Seriously, I really need to stick to “If it ain’t broke....” But that red marker on my apps tab was getting on my nerves. I am going to reign in my OCD and ignore the new updates *%#¥ from now on.

I do love Google map but I drive to a lot of different places around 4 states. I think it will be better adding a truck option because finding routes for 36 ton trucks is a little difficult. We are living in a world were everything is about technology. I think is time to get this app to another level, Even if that option is not free I'll pay if I have to, but just knowing that I'll get the correct route from the beginning, it will be extremely helpful
