Ratings and Reviews
Not all Hero’s wear capes!
I’m an long time user of Google Maps and big fan. Thank you developers for making this an incredible service to humanity. It just keeps on improving and bettering our lives.
Personally, the features I love most are:
1) Fantastic and clean user interface
2) Live traffic view
3) Busy times of places
4) Photo’s and ratings of places
5) You can download maps for offline use when you don't have signal
6) Personal saved location timeline
1) Please add more features to the “Timeline” feature. Such as:
a) “how many times you’ve visited a selected place (this month or this year). “
b) Provide stats to show you a breakdown on distance travelled per mode. (I’m curious to calculate my total commute for the past 4 years).
Thanks so much

Google Maps Navigation
Past few months have been a nightmare with Google Maps. It will show you the journey to be traveled however, as soon as it needs to assist navigating the application does not work properly. To think this used to be the best in the market now it's so disappointing 😭😭😭
Not too sure how to directly respond. When opening the app, it will show which route to take, however when the trip needs to commence then the voice doesn't even navigate. Then it will go into a mode as if it is picking up the route, the it reroutes only to be have a delayed reaction. When you think that's the worst part, then it starts from the top while in the middle of the journey 💔. I've gotten lost in the most scariest of places. Google Maps used to be the best thing in my life.
Developer Response ,
Can you try uninstalling and reinstalling the app from the App Store?
Top notch app-can’t wait to see what they can add next-couple of things not in South Africa yet, but it will come. Also the multiple visits to locations would be great-sometimes stores go out of their way to make it worse/right- they should receive a shot at redemption. The mapping could be updated with traffic quicker-but that might be our MTN network. Perhaps also indicate crashes or car problems with bigger icons. Otherwise it’s smooth and barring a major hiccup works well and consistently. Have yet to really test it out in rural areas, but it’s getting better all the time.
Would definitely recommend.
