Ratings and Reviews
The best all round mapping app
I find the quality of the maps to be pretty good, although the colour contrast could be better on my desktop PC. Fine on iOS. Streetview is extremely useful for many things, not least checking out a place before you go there. The biggest thing for me is the richness and quality of the pin data. This is particularly good as a lot of it is crowdsourced from the public who can add new things and edit mistakes. I’ve compared areas I know well with the other mainstream mapping apps like Apple and Bing and google wins hands-down.
I’ve had timeline turned on for a few years now and find it really useful and interesting. Perhaps that’s not ideal for people who are paranoid about google knowing where you go though. I personally don’t care.
One annoyance is having edits rejected by people or machines who clearly don’t know the area. I know it’s wrong! I live here / was just standing there! It took three attempts to change a car park’s address from “Burger Bar, Church St.....” Madness! The app could do with a field where you can leave a note for the reviewer.
Great. But beware the ‘AVOID TOLLS’ option! 😡
Always rely on Google Maps when we’re in the US, and especially liked the ‘Avoid Tolls’ option when you’re in a rental car and don’t want a hefty admin fee from the agency for going through a cashless toll. However I discovered last week that it’s not reliable - drove from Ohio to Staten Island NY with ‘avoid tolls’ selected, no warnings/pop-ups to say anything to the contrary, only to find ourselves at a $15 bridge toll to get over to Staten Island. Turns out there is no way to avoid a toll on to the island, fair enough, but if that’s the case PLEASE GOOGLE can you give us some notification of this when we select the route? I could easily have gone to an ATM and got the money before we got there if I’d known, but the only mention of the toll is hidden away down in the route description, and the top of it still says ‘avoid tolls’. No warnings whatsoever. So I’m now looking at a hefty fine/admin fee that would have been entirely avoidable if the nav info had been more accurate. Yes I know that all New Yorkers are aware there’s a toll, but it was a last minute trip and I trusted google maps to just avoid the tolls if that’s what was selected, or tell me if it wasn’t possible.
For future updates, the difference between cash and cashless tolls would be useful info, so we could avoid cashless tolls, but use cash tolls, as that’s what most people out of state are worried about.

Thank you for letting us know about this issue, and your patience as we fixed the problem. We appreciate it! With the latest update, Google Maps should now be working as usual.
Too many mistakes in the navigation system!
The application try to lead me into one way roads.
Shows me “turn right” many times on places where i am not allowed to turn.
Front of the Tower Bridge there are 3(!) mistakes too. For example the cars are not allowed to turn right from the Byward street to the Tower Bridge. I see many tourist every day do this mistake with rented cars because of the google maps and in this cross it is very dangerous maneuver.
I do not like the Waze. Slower and looks confuseing compare the google maps. I still want to use this app but you should fix this issues asap because there are many around London. Please update your system more often. This is the most populare navigation system on the word. Please handel this fact with responsibility.
