No More Transit Directions? (1/5)
I have always found the transit directions useful. At this point, I am no longer getting the “route” option for transit options. I am only getting what is essentially a read out of the steps on how to get to my destination; there are no longer alerts on when to leave the bus, when to get off the subway, etc. This seems like a ridiculous regression. Why would they remove step by step, audible directions? I am almost legally blind and use text to speech to even type this review and this makes it damned near impossible to use this application for public transportation. You should be ashamed for publishing an update like this. It is an insult to those of us with visual impairments. Consider this application deleted permanently. - Daniel Misgana

Lacking cell towers, for a dependable grid. (4/5)
It’s great if you have cell tower coverage. Unfortunately, when you really need to use it, no towers exist. Obviously, a never ending political issue, of money and power. - norcalkurt

Google Maps is RUINING my life!!!!! (3/5)
Today google maps got me stuck in the subway for an hour and it couldn’t reroute me!!! I almost cried in a JC Penny. - Kathy in Brooklyn

Google maps (5/5)
This app is great! I love how easy it is to use especially when I’m looking for new places to go! - 4phillip

The worst (2/5)
Ive used this app as my primary gps for years and loved it. These past few years it has gone down the toilet. Reason 1. Keeps repeating the same thing just seconds apart 2.map goes hay wire and shows your in the fields picking corn or something. 3. When it comes down to really needing to know what turns to take it keeps trying to reroute(plenty of missed turns). 4. The daamn automatic reroute if you dont click cancel. Dont change my route for me cuz you think its the best route. I dont keep my map up all the time so please fix that annoying auto reroute. Please fix those 4 items then ill will send you a few more. I find other maps more reliable then google maps like waze or even the gps that comes with the iphones. - alvincevans

Poor design of your location button. (1/5)
While looking at an area away from your area it’s far to easy and extremely frustrating to tap the arrow bringing you to current location. Seems like just panning and taping near the center location will move back away from an see your looking at. - PFLLC

Need additional options to avoid (4/5)
I use Google Maps for most of our travels. We travel by pickup pulling a fifth wheel. I always compare Google to whatever is showing on our truck’s GPS and generally reroute to match Google Maps. However, today when I did that, Google Maps put us on an unpaved road going over a very steep and curvy mountain. What a white-knuckle ride!! Very scary. After arriving at our destination, we found out that even most locals avoid that road and in winter, it doesn’t even get plowed! Thank goodness it’s June. We also found out that if we had been pulled over by the police, we could have faced a $10,000 fine! There needs to be an option to avoid unpaved roads. This is not the first time we wound up on unpaved roads during our travels. - Tkmilstead

Love it (5/5)
I love this app so much!!! It work on my Apple CarPlay but I would love it even more if it had Apple Watch compatibility. - Sun dance4532567

No good (1/5)
It stoped working - Viktorvabch

Glitchy glitch glitch (1/5)
Super glitchy the last few weeks. Going to be looking for a new navigation app if this isn’t resolved soon due to the fact that I like being able to get to my destination. - hgirllll5

Go follow me on snap @laurab1033 and my insta is lauren_britooo go follow that the apps good💖 - lollifeoflauren

I don’t care about EXPLORE function blocking my map every time I want to use the app (1/5)
Nothing more bothersome than this stupid window that pops up that’s asks me to explore my own freeking city every.single.time I open the app. I wish there was a way to get rid of this stupid function. Most of the time I just use the Apple map now since this is a big nuisance. - So Cal Stacy

Way better (5/5)
Way way better than maps for IPhone! - the chevy 67

Not comparable to android (3/5)
Love google maps over Apple but highly disappointed in the differences seems between the features offered between Apple and android, android app offers way more - Not that thrilled

Hit or miss (3/5)
I was in downtown Phoenix and it kept rerouting me and took me an extra 4 miles out of my way. - Devogirl

Great app gone bad (1/5)
The app is very glitchy and not the same since the last 2 updates. - italianUSA

Can’t up date (4/5)
I tried to up date three days ago. My iPad just keeps turning the circle. Can not stop it. How do I get out of it. - Bluff to you

No review need to rate this amazing app (5/5)
Always helps on the right time to go anywhere - g.baacha

My review (5/5)
I was very impressed with Dr Rooney and her staff with my daughters treatment. Thank you so much. - lucylittle1

Update is horrible (1/5)
I don’t know what they did to this app. It’s was great for the past years and lately they broke something that wasn’t broken. Gives wrong directions at the last minutes, doesn’t not give name to exits, and so many other things. Listen to the people’s messages lately and figure out how to fix this problem. - CALIGIRL(619)

Misleading app !!!! (1/5)
Enough said with that title. I had to stop every two minutes and ask people how to get to my destination - a shark name dana

Unusable - slow recalc (2/5)
When in dense locations, navigation is essentially useless aince recalculation is unreasonable. - Tauszet

Family sharing (2/5)
I have the family sharing and does not update movement of my family. They’ll be home and the app shows them still at school. Not helpful to locate the family. - jimmy krol

Do less (4/5)
Pretty good app but she does not shut up. I don’t need 14 reminders for one turn. Sometimes I switch to another maps app because I can’t take the constant updating and reminding - Kwithrow19

Wrong way (1/5)
Sent me totally the wrong direction. - Crazy 4 Smooth

Trey Cole (3/5)
Somethings the directions are wrong sometimes where I am is inaccurate sometimes it takes me the long way to my destination for no reason I know I’m not the only person that has experienced it. - Treytray

What A Joke of a Navi App (1/5)
This used to be good, it’s supposed to be the pinnacle of Navigation maps but after using it for years, using to do Lyft and Grubhub it has brought me nothing but problems. The destinations in apartment complexes can be vague, so you have to hunt where you actually need to stop. It lags and updates too late, causing you to miss exits or turns. And sometimes it just takes you to the wrong freaking turn. Had to turn into Hannah Niles Way in Braintree. It told me to turn into Logan Park, BEHIND THE HOUSE I NEED TO GET TO. Customer called and was VERY angry and so was the NEXT customer because this confusion costed 10 minutes!!! Get Waze or stick to the Apple Maps instead. Even your car’s internal Navigation works better. GOOGLE FAIL. - Daz Anguri

Niagara (5/5)
Beautiful place to visit and enjoy a family time - Alejandro Piriz

Business reviews gone after update (1/5)
Please bring back business reviews. - wcnngt1

iPhone issues (1/5)
Last update has caused the app not to respond when you hit start I have to hit it a bunch of times before it will start my navigation. Worked awesome until the last update please fix. Few of my other buddies with iPhones are having the same problem also - Luke49050

WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG TO LOAD? (1/5)
This app is beyond rubbish. It takes forever to load, update the next direction, and it’s never pointing at the right way. It tells me I’m going somewhere else for a full minute and then spins around and tells me I’m going the wrong way!! Not only is this DANGEROUS BUT ITS ALSO ABSOLUTELY USELESS. What’s the point of having an app if it can’t tell you where you’re going???? Thanks for almost getting me into a crash I’m so busy trying to figure where I’m going it’s absolutely ridiculous. Go fix it - Unhappy service user

Google Maps (5/5)
I Like Google Maps Because It Has Labels Amin Stuff - DilhanW

Pretty good overall (5/5)
Sometimes sends you to a wooded area and tells you, “You have arrived at your destination.” Id say you get 99 out of 100 PERFECT so that’s ok by me - andymacdougal

It’s good (5/5)
It’s the only app I use for directions and is never let me down so I think is a good app - BigDaddySuhrara

Inaccurate and lags (1/5)
Even though I recently updated the app, it absolutely does not work. The only way I can find my way is by using the list feature and flowing those directions like the old days! It does show the path in blue but never shows my location accurately. No way to tell where exactly I am en route. - Ghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

What happened? (1/5)
I travel a lot and this was 100% my go to, this recent update is awful and it saddens me that now I need to find a new way of navigation. Definitely nowhere near as reliable and for whatever reason it takes longer to catch up if you do make a mistake. - Trigrhapypopo

Top app used in map category (5/5)
Top app used in map category. Reliable and easy to use. Good rating system that is very reliable. - jim123454321

It’s very helpful (5/5)
A lot better than Apple’s default maps app, I highly recommend you use this app - Elais Perez

Not what it used to be (3/5)
Does not take anything into account... until you pull up on it. Like main highway closures... Drove from Oklahoma City to Houston and my original eta was 7:10... got there at 9:15. Offered a "faster" route that was absolutely 30 mins slower - skcjsjxjsnd

Awesome app. I love google maps because I get to go to different places and learn about them (5/5)
I do think you guys could add a game - JimmyDean68$?;;:&

Truck routes!! (2/5)
Why on earth does google maps not have truck routes for god sakes truck driving is one of the most occupied jobs in America why has google not given us free truck routing/navigation that won’t screw up and get you lost every trip it’s 2019!!! - Galatrax1

Can you please make it work without WiFi please 😀😀 - I💙WIFI

Inland roofing & supply, inc. (5/5)
Recently hired above company to replace roof of my house. They did an excellent job in removing old roof and installing the new one. Job was completed on time for the agreed price. Workers were excellent and courteous. The clean up was superb. It shows why this business has been successful for over 75 years with same family operating it. - Old LC Tiger

Great chiropractor with a kid-friendly office (5/5)
Dr. Brown and his staff are wonderful. As a mom of two boys, I often have to bring my children to appointments. Tiffany is amazing with them and is happy to color and play trains with my younger one. - MusicalAshley

Irritating (2/5)
I used to love Google Maps but now it can hardly read my location. It’ll put me on roads I’m not on and on the other side of the highway. It takes forever to update and redirect. I hate using Apple Maps and was a huge advocate for Google but lately the changes have made it worse and I can’t even get to my destination without getting lost. I’m pretty much reading the map for myself. Please fix this!!! I want to keep using it but I can’t if it can’t even tell me where I am :( - Ebsss13
