App crashing all the time on iOS11 iPhone X (1/5)

Please fix asap!!! Life is hard without this app working. - QIheme

Regrettably (1/5)

I’m a new Llyf driver, and I don’t have audio when I respond to riders who want to be transported to and fro. I’m really at a loss as to how to remedy this particular problem. Any suggestions? - AJRod1943

Awesome Google maps 5 star - reedsorenson

Needs to be worked on (3/5)

Google Maps was really good when I first downloaded it, but it keeps relocating and re-centering while I’m driving. One minute I have 35 miles to drive, and the next I have to take a random exit. Overall it has taken me to the right locations, but always after it has strayed from the original route. It’s frustrating, and I end up driving more than I intended to via unknown backroads. - MahinTheQueen

Speed limit and widget bug (4/5)

Needs to show the speed limit and an Apple Watch app. Also needs to remember my driving settings such as no tolls from the widget when you 3D Touch on the app. I would love to use the 3D Touch feature to quickly get directions but it never remembers my settings so I have to go into the app then type in my frequent location to get no tolls. - HawkEye1194

“ Go “ problem (5/5)

Hi When I updated to last version I cannot use “Go” feature. When I choose my location and destination it doesn’t show me the ways on the map. Please check fix it soon because it’s a necessary application for people. Thanks so much. -

Please Support Apple Watch Again (3/5)

Make humans life easier by re-supporting the best maps on Apple smart watch! I bike a lot and it is difficult to keep getting my phone out of my pocket at almost every junction to see the directions “sorry, I cannot depend only on sound”! - Taherkelani

Speed Limit (5/5)

Please ad a speed thang so I know how fast I’m going and what the speed limits are. Thanks - Tre Hop

Love it! (5/5)

Best GPS, simple as that. 😀 - Rsmd1020

Not what it used to be (2/5)

Had been such a reliable app, but in the past few months it has had some major problems on my Apple 7s. The projected time for a trip can be off by hours, the mileage is often off and does not send me the quickest way first, and it gets totally confused when it has to recalculate a route. I find myself pulling off the road and just looking at the map on this to figure out the route myself. - Suz7567

The best. (5/5)

Outstanding!!! - Rafterc

Lost with Google (2/5)

I had to look over my route before I start driving because it stops working and freezing It stops almost 2 miles from where I’m supposed to be exiting I’ve deleted it retried checked settings it knows where I am when I start but loses me after maybe 5-10 minutes of driving now it’s permanently deleted I’m back with Apple Maps - Ang3lika

Recent change causing issues (3/5)

This has been my go-to guidance app for years. Always rated it a 5. Recently, the “start directions” button is now followed by “start gps” before it will navigate, for some reason. It has introduced slower processing speed, particularly in urban areas. So much slower in quick turns with tall buildings around that it lags and I miss the turn. Noted same issue another reviewer complained about. The “heads up” has also gotten quirky and the arrow representing my auto is often turned 90 degrees/sideways. Confusing. I’m going to try something else. Would love to hear from the developer in what’s up with this gps addition. - Sondays

My personal assistant!!! (5/5)

I used the app everywhere I go !! Awesome !!!!!!! Thanks Google. - Siennabella1010

All Pro Painting (5/5)

We recently used All-Pro to help us prepare our home for selling. We were very pleased with every aspect of our experience. TJ was very prompt in calling us for scheduling an estimate and was quick to reschedule our dates of service, even with inclement weather a factor. Oswaldo and his team were very friendly as well as courteous during the service. We could not be more pleased with the job itself, very professionally done and the price was reasonable and fair. Thank you TJ and your team for giving your industry a "good name" to call upon for help! We would recommend All-Pro to our friends for sure. - J & L in Wake Forest

Bug bug bug (3/5)

1 major bug has added at this time ... when u choose a place and push route button ... nothing will happen. Actually I can rarely use this app by now ... it's annoying . - Hossein.Sudoku

Occasional User (1/5)

Previous version much better. User friendly is not a priority. In fact, the app is relatively useless now. I guess I'll plug in the old GPS again. - Gijfehbfekmver

No longer reliable (2/5)

Usually this is the most reliable app on my phone, but no longer. Lately whenever I get directions to a place, it will start off as normal and immediately freeze up and will just stay that way. Even if the arrow does start moving again, it will mark my location point completely off from where I actually am. I have to look at the step by step directions before I go anywhere now because this app has become unreliable for navigation. Very disappointed. - mcake17

Useful (5/5)

Google map is best for traveling - Hamed240

Ugh... (2/5)

I’ve never had any issues with google maps on my older iPhones. So I’m baffled as to why I’m having issues with my iPhone 8 plus. When I’m on the highway, it always redirects me to local roads when there’s not even an exit to get off of, it’ll tell me to make u-turns. The blue area sometimes doesn’t line up with the direction I’m driving in, the map turns upside down, to the left, right...and I’m having the same issue with Waze too. It’s frustrating using navigational apps that can’t even get you to where you need to go without redirecting you, telling you to get off the highways when you shouldn't etc. - Browneyesyeah

Amazing!!! (5/5)

I always use it on the computer but this is still really good it’s almost exactly the same - JCSMANs


I LOVE GOOGLE MAPS!!! :D... I USE IT ON MY IPHONE AND ON MY NEXTBOOK!!! Google, please don’t make Google Maps paid like you did Youtube(so there are no ads and playing in background for phones) Red!!! ;) - IVANGO69

Shutting down (2/5)

App keeps shutting down when I enter an address to go to. - ALeigh P

Who has has best Menudo in Wichita? (3/5)

I'm on a quest looking for the best bowl of Menudo in the City of Wichita. Today I tried this nice little hidden gem that offered a very traditional Mexican menu. The menudo was a dark red, not to spicy with plenty of hominy and tripe for one serving. The bowl came with corn torts, limes, chopped cilantro and onions. I would've preferred lemons, oregano, a larger serving for the $8 bowl and a little more spice. Overall not bad and would try it again but only if I were within a few miles of this nice little gem. I give it a 6 out of 10. - Thomas815

What is wrong with the app? (1/5)

Normally, this is my go to navigation app. But for the past two weeks it’s been acting with a lot of lag. And once I choose my route, it’s about a minute before it will start navigating. I have to continually tap “start GPS” until it will actually start giving me the directions. I hear this is happening to others too. I’m no longer going to going to use this app until this is fixed. - Jenninthedesert

Crashes often, please update (2/5)

please update the app because it crashes during every use, especially while in transit. doesn't help trying to get somewhere when you look at your phone and the app has closed and I have no directions - georgeisgorgeous

App Freezes / Closes Out (2/5)

I use this app for everything because I travel a lot and lately whenever I have it set on trip and I go to another app or text then come back to google maps it glitches and closes itself out and I have to restart by opening the app, plugging in the address again and starting the trip over again. It’s becoming frustrating because it does it every time now without fail. Please fix! - Imagine-giraffes-on-stilts

Dennis M (5/5)

Always reliable and continually updated - dsm tucson

Stupid app (1/5)

Stupid and stressful - dhjejvhevwc

Used to be great (1/5)

I’m an Uber and Lyft driver so I need a map that works all the time accurately and quickly. This app used to work well but recently it freezes - 8 out of 10 times. It registers the location but once it gets to the “start” button to begin the trip it freezes. I can tap it multiple times and...nothing. Closing out of the app and reopening it doesn’t work. It only happens with this app and only happens when it’s time to start the trip. Freezing 8 out of 10 trips isn’t a good ratio. Switching to another app that I really don’t like using but it’s the only alternative - zeiss0889

Crash (4/5)

My app doesnt show me the direction to my destination,itll crash if i touch the direction button - Shahab_hz

Savior (5/5)

I can’t tell you how many times my family & friends use other map apps (including Apple which isn’t horrible) & we’ve got lost. So I’ll pull out my Gmail Map & we always get back on track & to our destination. Now if I’m in the car & I see anyone try to use another map app, I say NOPE we’re using Google Maps‼️ - HIMZ1976

Unmatched and still champion (5/5)

Google Maps is terrific. Great data, great navigation. Shame Apple won’t let them use the lock screen the way Apple Maps can, but it’s still vastly superior. - President Bear

Problem (3/5)

There is something wrong with this update. Maps does not reroute as before. Sometimes it doesn’t show any path during journey. May be there is something wrong with iPhone X OS. It works fine with older iPhones. But when it runs in iPhone X, it become something else. Please check the compatibility with iPhone X. - Subbir

Crap (1/5)

Today I attempted to use google maps 3 times to find our destination. It froze up and wouldn’t work the first 10 minutes each time. It’s extremely frustrating to have to go in circles because it doesn’t work properly or is updating extremely slow after we’ve passed the roads it says to take. - FunGirly57636

Claw Daddy’s NYC (5/5)
