requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

send sticky broadcast
Allows the app to send sticky broadcasts, which remain after the broadcast ends. Excessive use may make the phone slow or unstable by causing it to use too much memory.

change network connectivity
Allows the app to change the state of network connectivity.

connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

disable your screen lock
Allows the app to disable the keylock and any associated password security. For example, the phone disables the keylock when receiving an incoming phone call, then re-enables the keylock when the call is finished.

download files without notification
Allows the app to download files through the download manager without any notification being shown to the user.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

measure app storage space
Allows the app to retrieve its code, data, and cache sizes

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

control Near Field Communication
Allows the app to communicate with Near Field Communication (NFC) tags, cards, and readers.

read your contacts
Allows the app to read data about your contacts stored on your phone, including the frequency with which you've called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific individuals. This permission allows apps to save your contact data, and malicious apps may share contact data without your knowledge.

read sync settings
Allows the app to read the sync settings for an account. For example, this can determine whether the People app is synced with an account.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

use accounts on the device
Allows the app to request authentication tokens.

control vibration
Allows the app to control the vibrator.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

toggle sync on and off
Allows an app to modify the sync settings for an account. For example, this can be used to enable sync of the People app with an account.

install shortcuts
Allows an application to add Homescreen shortcuts without user intervention.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

activity recognition
Allows an app to receive periodic updates of your activity level from Google, for example, if you are walking, driving, cycling, or stationary.

read Google service configuration
Allows this app to read Google service configuration data.

    Location is severely inaccurate since the latest update, which makes this app - and others that depend on it - useless. Gonna have to print out my routes before I leave home like it's the 90's again. And don't respond with that link about clearing your cache and uninstalling the updates; I've done it with no results. The issue is not with my phone. It's on your end. Please show more respect for your consumer base and address the actual issue. When the app is fixed, I'll update my review/rating.

  2. Jim Cardo-avatar

    apk Ever since my US Cellular S9+ updated to Android 10 this app hasn't worked properly. If I leave it on all the time it's fine, but if I power off the display and turn it back on later it is stuck at the location I was at when I turned the display off. I have to cancel the trip and restart the trip to get back to real time. This never happened at all in the past with any other version of Android. I hope an update is in the works to correct this.

  3. Ros lof-avatar

    maps - navigation & explore v10.12.3 Im not sure whats all goimg on and if it has anything to do with the current situation. But maps has not worked right for a week. I drove for a living and after every stop when i try to plot a new one it cant find my location. I usually have to restart my phone which costs me time and even then it doesnt always work. I really need this to be fixed. So low stars now but usually a very good app.

  4. Brady Wicker-avatar

    maps - navigation & explore v10.18.0 This app does not track correctly any more and any app that uses it for GPS is screwed up also. I have tried a different GPS map app and it works correctly which shows it is not a hardware issue. When I use it, it will either show that I am standing still then jump to the next location rather than tracking me or it will jump to some random location. It doesn't track my movements. Any app that uses this one for tracking is also affected or gives error messages. I have compared maps with another app to check the GPS function and it works fine, giving correct location and tracking. That link suggestion doesn't help. I've done all that.

  5. Mike Keiser-avatar

    maps - navigation & explore v10.15.3 This app updated again on March 17. It still does not work on our Samsung S9 phones. The blue dot continues to move around looking for a satellite. Tried the figure 8 accuracy check many times and it states high accuracy. This app updated on March 10. Since then it has become useless on my Samsung S9+. The blue icon no longer shows where I am located. It continuously moves all over the screen. Same thing happened on my wife's phone.

  6. Ronald Fan-avatar

    maps - navigation & explore v10.18.3 The app works just fine on wear OS however when your first download the app, location permissions are turned off by default. After almost three months trying to figure out why there is no location, I was shocked to realize that location permissions were turned off. If you have the same problem, give Google maps location permissions. What a disappointment...

  7. Jackie Alyward-avatar

    maps - navigation & explore v10.20.2 It used to be good. Since the latest update for Samsung, maps freezes ALL the time now. We will start it then it freezes. It takes us in loops instead of finding the quickest way there. We have 2 different phones (Samsung S8 and Samsung S10) and we have issues on both phones constantly. Even today, we would start it, it would freeze, we would completely close it...then the process would start all over again. We pretty much find places on our own most times. It's annoying.. FIX IT !

  8. Grace Asquith-avatar

    maps - navigation & explore - apps on google play I used to love Google maps whether on the phone or on the computer to give me great direction. Now, it is terrible, because I was in a city I had no idea how to get home and google maps lost connection at very crucial times, and just before a turn or before getting on the highway, leaving me to uturn several times. This almost caused an accident as well as, leaving other motorists honking their horns. Not cool. I'm going to change to another app I used to use.

  9. Tai Florie-avatar

    maps - navigation & explore v9.85.0 The new update sucks!!! It doesn't track where I'm going!! I use to rely heavily upon on this app because it performed without fail, but now..... I've had to rely on memory & that's hit or miss sometimes. Maybe this is a teaching moment for me that machines are not always the answer but I definitely don't need that moment to come at the expense of my meeting that I'm late for because my Google Maps can't get right....

    google maps - navigation & explore 9.84.2 beta I have noticed two things with this lately. 1) It does not tend to take the bigger, more natural roads. I have been on some crazy zig zag trips. I assume it is looking at shortest distance, but weird routes, for sure. 2) As I approach intersections, it is slower to tell me to turn and sometimes directs me around a block when going straight is the correct route.

  11. Tony Ray-avatar

    Best GPS I've seen since the beginning of the smartphone era. Google continues to be the best of all the major providers in the GPS industry. Google will also offer a superior version for the best possible price. Most people are happy with the free market version but the price for the premium app is a must have for the road warriors and job travelers who live on the road. Thanks again google for your hard work and easy access to valuable information.

  12. J. Gao-avatar

    After recent update I got Maps freezing on me consistently when I do local search and then try to view more than one results. Reinstalling and cleaning data did help a bit. But the freeze up is still there, if you interact with search result long enough. For example, if you search for business, look at a few cards and then tap on a pin's name on the map, it will freeze.

  13. Sam Archer-avatar

    It used to work well until a couple of weeks ago. Now when I open the app it thinks I'm 2 streets over from where I am no matter the location. Takes a couple minutes to recalibrate properly after driving. I've uninstalled, rolled back updates, cleared cache, everything previously recommended and nothing helped. It's bugged and needs to be fixed asap.

  14. Tone Iverson-avatar

    What is going on Google maps? After the last update, Google maps is not working. It works for 5 to 10 seconds and freeze up. It does not track speed or the road I am on, but somewhere random. It is giving directions to one road that has nothing to do with where I am going. At this point, I will have to look for new options, Google maps is useless. Update tried what was recommended and it is still not working. Downloaded waze and using that instead. What a bummer Google maps.

  15. A E-avatar

    Bad updates App worked perfectly for years and years, but something got messed up with recent updates. 1. Constant freezes when searching - it's veeery baaaad right now. 2. Map download feature works awful. 3. Rerouting started behave (mostly when it's a region with a bad internet connection), but it seems more like a "map download" problem. Probably will be fixed soon

  16. Tomohiro Yuasa-avatar

    It's a great app for people who have good smartphone, for me it's different, my phone doesn't have an inbuilt pedometer and illuminance sensor, because of this the GPS Pointer (compass) is always pointing in a wrong direction and is very confusing, I will be very satisfied and change my ratings if the developer or staff of Google map update the app and add a settings that can change the GPS pointer (compass) into a simple blue dot, a similar dot before you click start and start navigating.

  17. John Levesque-avatar

    What in the world happened to this app, I understand the world is in a temporary shutdown currently... But I didn't know that goes for all of Google maps as well! Won't give me a correct location, can't give me directions, saying I'm driving in the woods and I'm on a road, what happened after this recent update, terrible! Go back to two versions ago and it was a best app ever! Let's also add more time to mock a speed trap, how can you add a speed trap in front of a cop when you first pass

  18. Nighthawk Gaming-avatar

    As a driver I need this app. I used to be able to click the button on my headset when my phone was black not in use and say an address and my map would turn on and start saying directions. Now I I have to unlock my phone before I click my headset to say another address. I do this 150 times a day or more so it is very frustrating that it changed.

    Useless more often than not. Nav freezes when giving turn by turn and you won't know until you've missed your turn and eventually look at your phone and find it bound ten miles back, while other times it shows grossly wrong location while other apps show it just fine. "Search this area" button doesn't work. If your one purpose is to help people get around, and you fail at doing so, then what's the point? S8, note 8, and note 10 all the exact same story

  20. Ravi Kumar-avatar

    I've used Google Maps almost since day 1. It's been great so far. Really don't know what happened now, the developers seem to have interfered, injected some hormones and infected the once-beautiful app. It was simple, now it's complicated. The GPS doesn't work well on any mobile phone. The support article is of no help because the app itself is acting crazy due to poor design and functionality. Time to experiment with something alternative.

  21. Nicole Roach-avatar

    Was fine until the last few updates - past couple months the app constantly freezes and de-syncs, has to 'search for GPS' on every trip. I know I'm going to get a garbage response like "Use this website to get the most out of your location" like everyone else, so I would recommend someone in the dev team visit said website and teach your app how to get the most out of my location as it's intended to. Clearly this is not an isolated issue.

  22. Tara Madsen-avatar

    I love this app. I feel that the world can benefit from this app. Im a huge fan of all things Google! Im so impressed with how Google gets to know you based on how you use your daily devices and its navigation is excelent and always improving and stays up to date. Its most accurate for current traveling with current time tools and time. Yes i love it.

  23. Abhi Chohan-avatar

    (Edit: Thanks for the response, waiting to give 5 stars) Bug!!! In my M30s whenever I get notification about question from someone via maps, the screen goes white when Gmaps Open and nothing shows there. Even when I try to look for question by searching that particular location/monument I get only old questions. Please fix this, I want to help users.

  24. Brinna NiFiach-avatar

    I really appreciate the commute alerts and commute function, they've saved me (and others, by being able to post screenshots of the Maps app to a local group) from some big freeway backups. The directions aren't always amazing, even when you live in a populous area. The last time I used it, it directed me to a grass field instead of a road. However, it does have the ability to make corrections to directions that can be reviewed by Google, I've done that.

  25. AMANDA GASKIN-avatar

    Google, the latest update has broken a perfectly good app!!! When you navigate, you get the blue dot, however it doesn't follow you on your journey. I've followed the instructions you have given other people in these comments and it DOES NOT WORK! You need to fix whatever you broke in this latest version. Other GPS apps work fine with my phone. It's your app, not my phone, not my settings. It worked fine before this update. Until it's fixed, I won't be using it!

  26. Atish Sinha-avatar

    It used to be mostly used and one of the most reliable application on my mobile ! I have been using this app for years and it used to work just awesome. But, after last update, it barely works!! Takes a lot of time at still show my 'current location' to be the location where I was 10 hrs back! I must say, after the update, its very difficult and annoying to navigate here. Pls rollback the updates or let me know the workaround. Thanks, Good Luck!

  27. Franz PETER-avatar

    Navigation is not confortable at turns and roundabouts (not einough zoom, inaccurate indications). I have sent many feedbacks. I understand it must be very difficult to make such an app, and GOOGLE MAPS is great for a lot especially for searching and exploring, but I think Tom Tom Go is much better for pure navigation (I suppose You know that...). But Google Maps seems to improve (slowly) its navigation . I would like to join the beta team.

  28. Jason Gasaway-avatar

    Overall it works well and has lots of info for places. The worst part is the default into walk mode. Since I use it to deliver products by driving, walk mode is not an option. The feature for one click directions is useless because of this default. It takes so many touches to navigate instead of just to because you have to hit directions then choose drive and then hot drive. If you happen to hit navigate at the beginning then you have to exit hit directions etc. A lot of extra time and clicks.

    The last update destroyed an otherwise perfect app. Search for residential locations is now controlled by advertisements and businesses information. I am so sorry that I updated. Try Colonel's Corner Bhopal, it will show you an OYO property >25 km from the correct location. Other Google services build and leverage. Maps team has destroyed. Quite a shame. Will look for a new maps app now.

  30. Soulcommander-avatar

    GPS is not tracking. I'm not sure when this started after the update or exactly when. I have seen the response on here of users having the same problem and Google has responded with a couple of links however you cannot click on those links here. I have uninstalled the latest update but it is still not working properly I have on my Samsung 9 plus phone cleared the cache in maps. Also so you know I have made sure all settings were correct.As in the google response below. Sending phone for repair

  31. Thomas Youngblood-avatar

    Use this app all the time. Wish it had the following. 1. Larger font for arrival time during Navigation. 2. Ability to remember original search text rather than search results. It's nice being able to quickly bring up a previous search, but only if that was a search I really wanted. Often I'm just trying to find the best type of place or seeking a place based on vague information. It's annoying to keep typing everything from scratch over and over.

  32. Michelle Main-avatar

    We were driving across the country yesterday. We selected the route we wanted out of three provided by Google maps. Every time we would stop for gas, it would then re-route how it wanted us to go. Regularly had to check to see if it was messing up. I missed one of its re-routes and added 100 miles and 2 hours of time to our 957 mile, 15 hour trip. I'm ready for my paper map to come back out. This app sucks now. Tried the same route in a replacement phone. Was much better. Paper map out!

  33. Teresa Cafe-avatar

    When using it for directions it works great. Exploring the earth in satellite view is really cool and the street view transports me to places I can't go in person. I have even stumbled into becoming a Local Guide on Google Maps. Contributing is rewarding for me as it entices me to explore the area and try new things. I love it!

  34. Donovique Castillo-avatar

    Donovique Castillo


    This is so annoying. The GPS for whatever reason isn't accurate. It thinks I'm 5 miles away from my actual location. Which is super annoying when using this app with Android Auto. I've tried erasing the data but to no avail. Please fix this issue. I even enabled improved location accuracy on my phone. (Samsung Galaxy S9+)

  35. Darien Culmer-avatar

    Hate the new update. Loses gps signal before it even looks. Retry over and over again. When it finally sort of works, I already drove past my turn or exit. Found a temporary cure for it. Uninstall the update. Unfortunately it forces the update back without your permission so have to repeat the process every other day or every day. Cmon google youre aware of this fix it or allow us to stay on an older version instead of force updating it.

  36. Josh Stout-avatar

    Update: I just went through every review since the last update that screwed everything up. Every single review says the same issues are occurring and all the developers have to say is adjust YOUR settings. I use this app EVERY day for the last 8 years. I'm a truck driver and I keep it in the dash for the whole drive everywhere I go. No problems until the last update and you're telling me that it MY settings?? You broke something on your end. FIX IT!!!

  37. Chad Bruner-avatar

    Google Maps has settings which the user cannot change, for example speed traps. Not only can the user not disable this setting, the user MUST interact with it to get it off their screen in order to see the next step. THIS IS DANGEROUS! Fix it Developers or I will continue negative feedback. UPDATE: Thank you. Awaiting update in app.

  38. Victoria-avatar

    Ever since the most recent update the addition of bus tracking has basically taken the function out of maps for me. It's unusable. I check the routes hours before just to make sure my route hasn't changed but now it won't show it at all because it care more about what bus appears to be coming. I'm checking 2 hours early NONE OF THE TRACKING FOR 2 HOURS PRIOR IS ACCURATE. I have a tracker on my phone for that specifically so I can check at the stops. Please give an option to turn the tracker off.

  39. Monica Londono-avatar

    I am not sure what is happening but something is really wrong with the app. Is constantly off line and its getting frozen in the middle of the process. It is just a big problem since I got lost twice for over an hour at a town that I was not familiar with. Update... I cleared my catch f. did the update today as well and still the same problem. I had to reset my phone for the app to respond and nothing has improved. This is happening since the update with the new look and icon. What is happening?

  40. aaron a-avatar

    Same issue here...have a Samsung S8 and maps worked great all the time until the most recent update. Now the compass accuracy is low all the time. I have reinstalled it and cleared cache and it starts working then goes back to the same problem again within minutes. Clearing cache fixes it for a minute until something in the background happens and messes it up. Clear it and it works again then loops. Can't use this anymore...very frustrating.

  41. rima love-avatar

    Update: Well, I finally figured out what was wrong with my Google maps. My maps had stopped working about two weeks ago. It was constantly recalculating and could not pick up my current location. Well, I found out that SIM cards recently updated. So I went and brought a new cell phone with a Sim card and put my current plan in it. If your Google maps recently stopped working all of a sudden, update your phone and SIM card. My Google maps is back to working great! You need a new SIM card!

  42. Bob Richardson-avatar

    Worked great on my Galaxy S9+ since I got it 18 months ago but a few days ago it had my location badly off when I started a trip. After a few miles it settled down and worked properly. Same problem ever since. I've cleared the cache and reinstalled it. No change. I installed GPS Status which shows that the GPS sensor is working. PLEASE FIX ASAP!

  43. Troy Rosin-avatar

    This app is going downhill quickly. I do not want to have to switch into some apple person, but the reliability of this app has gone down to 0% for me. I count on this single app to take me from point "A" to point "B" each day without flaw, but it ceases to do so. It's also frustrating to know that the answer to my question is right there, but the app denies me from loading the entire answer that I request. Roughly it has constantly said in the last 72 hours"An error occurred, please try again."

  44. Tom Murray-avatar

    Use this every day, but since about October 2019 it's lost the ability to run in the background so I can no longer lock my phone on long stretches (motorways for instance). Any more than about 30 seconds on a different app or with screen locked and it loses gps and navigation so I have to keep it running constantly. Not only is this a terrible drain on the battery but now my phone has screen burn too, quite obviously from the maps UI

  45. Jonathan Ddamulira-avatar

    Jonathan Ddamulira


    Must pay me for this suggestion, you need to add a reminder option, i.e: someone plans to buy something from a location after starting the journey they forget. But if u add this reminder option, maps can remind us upon reaching that location that "hey, you planned to buy something from this location. " otherwise thank you for the great work google.

    EDIT : I went to the link you provided and I have taken all the steps and it still doesn't work. Nope. Still doesn't work. Cleared cache and uninstalled updates. My location is continously dropped and it never knows where I actually am. I could be driving on the road and it thinks I'm in the nearest body of water. Totally off.

  47. Brian Lawrence-avatar

    March 28 th. Followed directions. Old app still working, new app has reloaded 3 times w/o consent. Still not working. I'm done with it. Thanks for trying. I really want it left alone or removed completely from my device if this is the new normal. First time using the app since a recent update on a Samsung S8 Active. The app freezes & no voice any longer. Waze seems to work fine.

  48. Carl Conquilla-avatar

    App is fixed now that as you approach the destination it doesn't interrupt your navigation. Well done it only took 2 years In reply to: I will provide more feedback when you stop removing trip directions as I approach the destination. I cannot see where I need to go, in what is probably the most critical and intricate part of the trip. And information provided on that popup has not been useful even a single time. I have much more feedback, but you need to fix the aforementioned problem first.

  49. Anne Keller359-avatar

    Constantly freezing in the middle of driving. That's very dangerous. Had to always pull over just to restart my maps. And yes I already did try all your suggestions here to clear cache, uninstall update and reinstall UNFORTUNATELY THEY DIDN'T WORK. Still having same problem. Please fix your app to be just like the old version when it was working so perfectly.

    This app has been horrible since the update. It loses GPS signal constantly. This happens on the old phone I replaced and the one I just got. There's times when you should leave things that work alone. Google has to step up and correct these issues. You're rating continue to decline, if you took the time to read all the recent reviews you can see its not a singular issue. It's an issue that is going on with all recent posts on here.

  51. Cari Bray-avatar

    When Maps is running, it's VERY SLOW, and I can't use ANY other app while it's running either because it's just SOOOO slow. It doesn't have many options for the voice when navigating & my BIGGEST issue is that sometimes I can't drive the way Maps is taking me due to construction or lane closures, etc, but it will NOT show an alternate route & that is not only infuriating but dangerous as well.

  52. Leo Leahy-avatar

    I'm updating my review from a lower score. I did a factory reset on my LG G6 and I saw considerable performance improvements, but the performance is still not good on Google Maps. I don't think this app should lag on a phone that, despite its age, has 4 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 821. Unlike Google Maps, most apps run smoothly still. Feature wise though, this app is unparalleled. You should steal some features from Waze though (which last I checked was still owned by Google).

  53. Black Illusion-avatar

    I used to use this app very often to plan routes and see how far some places are. However now, no matter what I do it says 'can't find a way there'. I can't give it just two or one star because I used to have a good experience but that has ceased now. I can't use it - once that's fixed I'll change the rating Edit: I tried everything, clearing Cache and Data, deleting update - nothing helps so far. It still shows the same message 'can't find a way there'

    I use to use this app every day but now it doesn't give good directions by telling you the street name or what freeway exit to get off at. It just say turn left or turn right and I'm like turn left where!!! I really don't like this update and will give bad review each time I use it. Don't mess with things that aren't broke..

    I've used this app on every phone for almost the entire 15yrs this has been on the market,with no issues. I had to come on here to see if others are having issues the past couple weeks with the app. Everytime I use the app for the past few weeks during the route, it gets confused about my location and starts spinning thinking I'm going in another direction, then it will constantly change the direction. This has delayed me and had me turn down wrong streets and causing me to be late for meetings.

    This app is good but they keep "updating" things that break useful features. E.g. 1. When switching away to another app and back after a minute or so, the navigation stops and you have to restart your journey. 2. The notification icons are hard to read now that there is no solid background behind them (only the map).

  57. Robert Ashley-avatar

    The app is almost great, except it no longer tracks my routes and now the ETA and trip time is so small that you have to have a magnifying glass to see it. I have tried several different methods of making it larger but it affects all the print except where it needs it the most. I use this app to drive cross country and the small print makes obeying the law (using it hands free) really hard when you either have to take your eyes off the road to read it.

  58. Sean Tabb-avatar

    Seeing the reviews, I know I am - by far - NOT the only one having ussues.... when I'm going 70mph the app says I'm going 0mph OR even -1mph! It is CONSTANTLY locking up & saying gps signal lost (but if I back out of navigation it somehow follows right along correctly on the road I'm on!). It sends me in loops and when I fuss at it, the mic activates &, it says it's sending to my gmail, what's that all about???

    I figured out why my location Data wasn't syncing in Google Maps Time-line. Even though all my permissions were set correctly and my location history was set to on the problem was with the device selection. If you go to data and personalization under Google account settings just click the box that says location history and select your device with the checkbox. If it's not selected no time line data will show up at all even if all the other settings are set to on. This is my opinion is a flaw.

    Best android maps navigation app. I use a stand-alone GPS in my car but always bring the phone app in case. I really use it to store directions to many places when I travel in the USA. It is extremely reliable and works well thru my car phone when I don't want to look up stored locations on my stand-alone GPS. If there was a way to use gmaps without incurring data charges, I wouldn't use the stand-alone GPS.

  61. Haley Brisson-avatar

    The newest update is horrible. The app no longer tells you how long it will take to get to your destination as you're driving, how much time you have until you reach your destination or what time it will be once you get to the destination. It doesn't show your speed limit anymore which isn't a big deal. I've only used the app a few times since I updated so I'm not sure what else has changed but so far I give the new update a big thumbs down.

    Love some features I haven't seen in any other app (such as sharing trip progress and so on...) 👍 But what makes the app almost UNUSABLE for me is impossibility to use it as a driver without directions. I often don't want the app to navigate me, I just want it to show me the map, my position and speed e. g. Could you please give us this possibility?

  63. tomisk-avatar

    no idea what is this app for. bad for navigating, bad for trip planning. Only the map itself is good. More details: - accessing my saved points and maps should be possible. this is gone. so my essential needs are not fullfilled. - navigating offline doesnt work as expected. even with saved offline map i have issues to navigate. - saved maps expires after some time thats ok, but its better to use old map than block the app at all. So overall i cannot rely on this app, even if it has good maps.

  64. Curt Landrum-avatar

    Well, since my original 5 star review, Samsung installed a new update, and now Google Maps won't function AT ALL, unless the location is on. Before update, no problem. Now we're down to one star. 1) the new user interface sucks---all the same functions, but with the tabs hidden in other places? Why? 2) the speedometer appears and disappears, and, according to the cop that stopped me, the accuracy of the speedometer is about five miles per hour off 3) the estimated time and distance disappear

  65. Candace Landry-avatar

    This app worked fine and stopped working recently even though no settings were changed. I can enter addresses and it finds them and gives me a route and estimated time to get there but when I hit start to guide me it doesn't work. Sometimes it says locating gps (it never finds one) other times no error comes up but it no longer tracks my location and guides me to my destination. This is the only app I have issues with and I have data turned on and permissions on for this app.

  66. VISWA MITHRA-avatar

    Every time the google maps authentication not the standardable it's changing everytime without any information. For example: 1. This is user information to google where he is. It's meant he will be tell here is in such a location. If we planted a plant in one location and then informing to others here I was planted a plant in this location. It's mean point out of our location. It's real google progress.2. This is administrative google locator he will create when he is locating for administratio

    Maps would shut off when I pressed the lock screen, I was trying to conserve battery while I had significant distances between next exits/turns, I found out for my Samsung galaxy S9 I just needed to put my device back into "Optimized" battery mode. To do this Settings>Device Care>Battery>Power Mode>Optimized. Was an easy fix that took me far too long to figure out. Then when I'm done with maps I just put it back in "medium power saving" mode. Hope this helps some other aggrevated user's.

    Up until android 10 update on February 7, 2020 this app has rocked. I have used this app on SG3 and SG6, and now my SG9. Since the android 10 update, my SG9 will not navigate and my SD Card is now NOT supported. SG9 always knows where I am, and have been, but the app will not navigate. I have tried WAZE, too and get the same results...No navigation. Often get the message ... GPS Signal lost, or the blue dot stays at departure location the entire drive, or maybe it's just frozen.

    My phone has an OS Watch, Apple device or pixel phone. Connected with my Samsung Galaxy A20, Been having problems due to letting people use my hotspot and my phone doesn't have an SIM card or SD card in device. That's my only concerns when an OS Watch or a linked Apple phone, Apple Watch, Samsung Watch, or Google Watch etc. Cause I want to say it's right but when I first open Maps it asked me if I was 501 W 4th Street which isn't where I am at. Thanks Google Team.

  70. Sway L-avatar

    Im like many others, and I thought it was my phone also or that I needed to update this app. This app has been one of the best apps I've ever had until the recent changes. I'm experiencing the same issues as your last 2 reviews. Clearly you have ruined a perfectly good app. Please return it to its previous standard and always remember if it is not broke, don't fix it.

  71. Edward Jocz-avatar

    Ruin the map app. Was working good until you screwed it up!! It's sloppy look now. Just messy looking. I have to zoom in the get rid of that green mess I have to now look at on the page. Was easy to use and was area. The old system clean looking now sloppy programming. Have no idea how you messed up a good thing but a common thing with apps today. There was reason to chsngecjt. Keep it simple but you ruin that to this update. You put junk at the bottom screen I tried to clear.

  72. Emily Mcfadden-avatar

    On 21 march, 2020 google maps accuracy degraded and slowed down, accuracy was up to 3/4 mile in error. Resulting in some very troublesome issues of deluiery of goods and services. The slowness of location, even when accurate( lag time) was particularly troublesome. Dont trust Google Maps, use common sense and normal route finding ( map reading) skills

  73. Omar G4mer-avatar

    I love google maps and I use it to contribute some of photos I took in restaurants I admit. However last 3 or 4 day the app is so crazy I lost some of my contributed photos ( about 20 yesterday and other 20 today have disappeared ) , views count freezes at certain number all day. I sent my feedback yesterday on the app but no response until now. Hope the problem be solved as soon as possible as it's very disappointing to see these major issues in this huge app that has over 5B downloads.

    Why does Google add features and then remove them a few updates later? Used to tell you which platform your train is on now it no longer does. Why? Also the time when next train is no longer working the way it should. When I try to open next train it just shows the current train instead of other ones like it used to.

    Google map has become an essential part of my daily life. It has assisted me in all kind of direction queries. Thank you for its developer and updater👏👏 One suggestion : Please update the satellite image during this Corona lockdown period because I have noticed the sky is so clear now for clear and quality images with less human disturbances. I guess we have now the clearest environment all over the world with less pollution, which is very rare to get in future as well. From Kathmandu, Nepal.

    I used Google Map app Friday night. Everything was working fine other than I would be in a no-service zone. Yet it still worked just fine. Now Sat-Sun March 28 & 29, 2020 it would'nt open, and even when I'm not using it and it's not left open; I get a pop up screen like every 5 seconds to every minute or throughout the day. Saying "Maps has Stopped: close app /send feedback". The thing is I rarely use the app, yet, I update it when notified that an update is available. Can this problem be fixed?

  77. Brian Hahn-avatar

    no options on map to say stay on paved roads also comes to dead ends because of this where you can see where you need to go but you can't get there because there's no road. If there was an option to click. If there was an option to click about dirt roads. It would solve both these problems. Response to Google: You really don't know what paved roads are? And I am not returning to a place I rarely go to just so you can know what I'm talking about. Put the picture in a screenshot.

  78. Gemma Davies-avatar

    Starting a week or so ago the gps signal gets lost within 20 seconds of starting the journey. I googled the issue and all I found were hundreds of other people with the same problem, but no solutions. Ive updated and it hasn't helped. The app is virtually useless and taking up space on my phone.

    Like most of my fellow mappers I don't care for the latest update. It is hard to find where everything is hidden...I still have issues with my timeline as I often only drive past a location but you guys hound for info after being told to dismiss that place... correct the flubs or I'm's bad enough to find listings for businesses in "my? backyard" when in fact they are miles away

    Everything was fantastic until the last actualization, what happ?! I was so proud of how useful google maps was; but now, the gps is never working properly and is a pain every time I try to navigate with it. I've been hitting my head around it trying to figure out what was wrong. I tried everything, from unistalling the app to reseting my phone, and nothing ever worked. Now that other users seem to have the same problem, I realize that then it must be a problem with update. Please, fix it ASAP.

  81. Krista Bauer-avatar

    What happened? I have had 5 situations where Google Maps has just simply stopped working. It is in the middle of giving directions and the icon stops moving, the voice stops giving directions and it will not get back to working. Someone else has had to GPS it or I was lucky enough to see the place I was going and found it. My service was great, I live in a big city, and have never encountered this type of issue with Google Maps. Very disappointed in the update and I hope it is resolved soon.

    Sure, when ever I open Google map and any application which is interconnected with maps such as Uber,rapido,Amazon flex swiggy etc... It is lagging ,like the navigation holding in a place for a while even I am moving... After a 50 or 100 meter crosses suddenly it reaches the place correctly.. some time it is going before me and made me confused. Some time it shows the place where I first open the app .. example if I open the map in a place and minimized it after crossed 2,3 km it strucks there..

  83. Shawn W-avatar

    I use Google Maps on daily basis for work. I noticed a few weeks ago everytime I would use the app, it would freeze causing me to miss my turn or drive past my destination. At first I thought it was my phone (Note 8) as it has been acting up but then when I got my replacement phone, I noticed the same issues which eliminates the possibility that it was the phone(s) not working properly. There is something wrong with this app that causes it to constantly freeze on the Samsung Note 8 phone.

  84. rohit bhardwaj-avatar

    The Google maps was working perfect, but now i can't see maps getting navigated when I drive my car, it stays still at the starting point, even if I restart it and have driven miles, it stays at the starting point and doesn't moves. And it even start searching for the network even if I have full reception. Google pls fix it asap.

  85. Shweta Kumar-avatar

    Since the last update, the landscape view is all skewed up. The route im following shows in a corner while rest of screen is filled with area arund my route which is useless to me. This needs to be fixed so I don't have to keep adjusting my focus on the screen while driving 😔. I wanted to upload a screenshot but no provision here.

  86. Dre Peoples-avatar

    Recently the app is always offline. It won't show me locations or directions. Even when connected to wifi. This sucks. I always use maps to show me traffic to and from work so that I can plan out my routes. Ive had to use Waze for the first time in my life because of this. Please fix. If not Waze may have a new user.

    Disappointed that photographs that have been added to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo and National Stone Centre have been randomly removed without notification. No one has explained why they have been removed. I put photographs on google to share experiences with others even in these difficult times. i would love an answer google please fix the problem.

  88. Mr Heyborne-avatar

    Like many others have said, I do not like the update. I am able to uninstall thus reverting back to the prior version. Unfortunately every day or 2 I see the new logo and version has appeared. I have all automatic updates, history, etc turned off. How how does this update keep getting forced on users? How can I keep the prior version?

  89. Caralice May-avatar

    The new update is horrible! I've never had issues in the past and now the location is awful, it can't navigate me even after giving the correct direction, shows a route but my arrow is in the middle of mountains, all in all the app sucks now and to use it for work and have it not work is ridiculous.

  90. Arnaud Jacquin-avatar

    Maps now regularly force-closes on me. From best to useless. Update: Deleting all the data (not just the cache), uninstalling and reinstalling did fix the issue but I lost all my downloaded maps in the process. It would have been nice if a linked reference of these maps could have been saved in my Google account for a quick and easy re-download.

  91. Bri-avatar

    I use this app for walking directions when I am in the city & rely on it to get anywhere & manage my time so I can get back to the bus station on time. Everytime, it somehow gives me directions that bring me to long flights of stairs or really steep hills, when, it always turns out there were other ways I could have gone. I am disabled. I require forearm crutches to walk. I can't do the hills and stairs and I can't safely backtrack either. I need an option to click to avoid these hazards.

  92. Tony Wilson-avatar

    It wont let me just drive and explore, ever since the latest update. It keeps blocking it and it's really frustrating. It has the top left menu grayed out with a question mark on it saying location sharing and time lines are now here and has me go to my profile. I can no click on the top left menu next to the where you would put in a location. All I want to do is hit just drive and I can no longer do that. Why????

  93. james-avatar

    Definitely use to be my #1 go to, but after they did whatever they did, I don't like it. Seattle used to be a great way to look and see what's around you but now every time I search something it automatically just starts navigating me there. Maybe I'm using it wrong I hate that I can't search something without it immediately going to navigation and if I dismiss it then it just goes back to my location

  94. Raghavan R-avatar

    Some time before it used to be gud but now things look different but full of issue's, first thing it will loose its calibration often everytime I try to use to use I find calibration lost, everytime I try to add location add phone number will not be visible but after finishing the edit except telephone number it will show add phone number, Later to witch the entered phone number will never update . Crazy updates, in 15 years people cant see the basic attributes are working or not.

  95. scott stoots-avatar

    I have to try to get my location at least 5 times to get the gps to work. I travel for work and not having my gps working is unacceptable. It is also unsafe to have to go in and out of app while driving. If the update doesn't fix it I'm switching to Waze. Update, I don't need an article to utilize my GPS, I've been using it for years. I need you to fix it so it works. I'm not the only person with this problem.

    Great app. I think it has grown tremendously over the years. If I would improve one thing I would have a way to view traffic patterns at different times of the day. A timeline of how the traffic in the direction you want to go varies. Maybe one day you would like to know if at 6:00 am traveling here there's alot of traffic?? If so let me get up earlier to leave there. Anyway I love google for this one.

  97. Justin James-avatar

    This thing sucks, it's wrong often enough and the estimation times make zero sense. Now I'm trying to get directions to a place I've been before and used this app to get there and now magically there is no way to get there??? Really? What a b.s. app for such a large company like Google. All those resources and money and that's the best you got?

  98. Ni Obama-avatar

    I loved Google Maps for years, it was flawless. For the past few weeks or more it's been consistently dropping tracking of my location while I'm driving. Worse, it fails silently, leaving me to realize that it hasn't been updating my location for the last few miles. I had one commute that took 30 minutes longer than it should've taken because I missed several key turns. My location settings are as accurate as possible, location works for me with other apps. Also walking navigation sucks in NYC.

  99. Cabron Herrera-avatar

    Latest update killed my gps location. I am floating all over the place within a mile or 2 of my actual location. The app fails to track me on the road and freezes at a wrong location. I use other apps such as ingress and I naturalist that depend on proper location. I have followed the guidance left on other reviews including clearing cache removing updates calibrating compass removing location apps ect. How can we depend on this for everyday used if location is totally wrong. :(

    I'm a prepaid network user, so offline map is very important to me specially when I'm on travel. The previous offline maps that I have downloaded works well but now I don't know, before I leave the house when I'm traveling I always make sure the map is updated and downloaded as offline, but its not working still need data or WiFi 😏😒😕
