Another update another CarPlay issue (fixed with latest update)

This app used to be flawless but recent updates have just been rubbish. First the freezing in CarPlay and now when opening it’s there and can navigate around the screen but the actual map won’t load/show. To get it to actually show the map properly on the cars screen you (or at least I do) have to manually open the App on the phone which instantly makes the failed map appear, I can then close/lock the phone and put it to one side. After doing that it works fine. If I open the phone and close app on phone it closes on CarPlay. This is new in the last update, in the past when you opened this in CarPlay it would just work, no need to faff with the phone. If you opened the phone you wouldn’t even see that app open. It just worked like the other apps. And this is most definitely a google maps issue because every other CarPlay app works flawlessly as expected on the cars screen with no messing on the phone. Does anyone actually test these updates before release by the company or is it just fire it out and wait for complaints?

Update: glad to see the latest version released 26 Sep 23 has resolved my issues regarding CarPlay.

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.

Delivery driver app

I have been using google maps for many years. And compared to the big two Garmin and Tom Tom this is by far the best app to use. Is it perfect no it’s not. But a little checking before pulling away can save a lot of the little problems. Check the final destination is correct. Check postcode and double check house number is at the same location or even tap in the business name.

The options to take alternative routes is a real life saver when live traffic is activated. This has saved me literally hours. Route could be nice and clear when pulling away but 2 hours down the road anything can happen. Gmaps will alert me with nice big red travelling time. A quick zoom out and a tap on the screen gives a quick detour around the problem.

DEVs: A lot of delivery drivers use this. Just one little question. When will you release an option for hgv vehicles (width restrictions and height restrictions). Nothing a little common sense doesn’t sort out but please bear in mind that hgvs do use your app.
