Lots of things to say...
I used to LOVE this app. But it needs a refresh. When I first got this, about 2 years ago, it was amazing. The integration with your Google account is very helpful. Suggestions are much better than Apple Maps, and I still think more businesses and places are on Google Maps than Apple Maps. That being said, now I’m using Apple Maps. Why? For starters, the colors on the map are very bland, and don’t show much detail. Apple Maps is just a pleasure to look at. The zooming in and out is not very fluid nor smooth, and when you launch the app there are simply too many pop ups, to the point where you really can’t see much of the map without swiping multiple things away. Also, integration with StreetView would be nice, especially since Apple has already built look around right into their app. So now I’m forced to make a choice: The pleasure to use, seamless Apple Maps, or the more reliable, clunky Google Maps? So far, I’m using Apple, but if Google can get their app working more nicely and fluidly, than there will simply be no competition. 4 stars for now, and iPhone users will simply have to make that choice for themselves.
Critical bug pls fix this Every time I use google it ask me to download the app😡
I’ve already downloaded the App😡😡
When am using Safari -> Google-> find location xx near me-> direction -> Navigate -> it opens Get the app and I have the option of ‘Continue’ of ‘Not now’ Not now take me to Navigate Button Again and it wont even let me continue to direction without asking me to download the App. ( which I have downloaded the app) It just takes me back to Navigate button back and back again Navigate not now Navigate not now.
It used to give me the option ‘Continue’ and ‘Not now’ and when selected ‘Not now’ it would ask to enter my location....which btw my location is turned on my Settings for google then lands to ‘Continue’ and ‘ Not now’ options. ‘Continue’ and ‘Not now’ both will open the App page and ask you to download the app all the time. And btw all this is while am prob stopped at a traffic light or driving and wanna do a quick search things to find near my loc. How can an app always ask you to download all the time? Either give us the option ‘Not now’ to work properly or direct us google map page picking up my location and the location googled. Or give us back the use the old web option which is google-> direction -> navigate-> pick my location -> then the Googled address-> Navigate to continue to direction simple and easy... So annoying and frustrating !!!
Progressively getting worse
As someone else mentioned, the directions do not keep up with your physical movement. The GPS dot moves all over the place even if you are standing in one spot making it extremely difficult to get your bearings in an unfamiliar place. I may not know where I am, but I do know where I am not (...unless the men's fragrance section of Macy's has been moved outdoors and a block over). Adding to the challenge, the street names can be difficult to find. You may have to zoom out a significant amount for the one you are looking for to appear. God forbid you want to zoom out and look for something in another area. Every time I have tried recently, it just brings me back to the area I'm currently in.
Using the transit directions prove to be equally obnoxious. There will be directions to "Walk" but no explanation of where to (no "turn left on X Street") so you have to rely on their map and faulty GPS. The public transit are very confusing and counterintuitive (perhaps they're sufficient for people used to using public transit?). I couldn't always clearly tell when a bus/train was arriving.
Not sure what happened with the last few updates, as I have used Google Maps reliably on a number of past trips. I already hated to give my data over to Google but the frustration with this app on this trip makes it easy to try something new. I imagine orienteering would be easier than using this app!
