Directional arrow

levymetal

What happened to the arrow on the blue dot that showed the direction you’re facing? Now, instead of an arrow, there’s a faint blue gradient attempting to show field of view, which gets lost on green/park/water areas, is difficult to see when the screen is on low brightness, or for those without good vision, and isn’t obviously/easily discernible from a quick glance (eg, when riding a bike). Now I have to bring the phone up to my face to try and figure out which direction I’m walking, or stop the bike to look at the map properly.

Nothing is more usable, obvious, or intuitive than an arrow pointing in the direction you’re facing. Nothing. When Apple Maps was originally released, it didn’t have the arrow, and after years of complaints they eventually caved in and added it. I think that says something about how important it is. Now, ironically, and inexplicably, Google Maps has removed it.

The arrow was not a problem; it didn’t need to be “fixed”. Please bring back the arrow.

Super handy but....

This app as been really helpful but I have notice several things through using this app that could be improved on ASAP. The first is the calculation for walking distance...most of the time it thinks I can walk very very fast ~ so it would be great if you could adjust that (if you know roughly how long it takes you). The app also tends to take me odd/longer routes even if I have taken the same route several times before. I think it would also be handy when selecting where to go to edit where you can catch a bus from etc cause I found while it leads me to the closest one it is almost all the time the scariest one to wait at. Besides that great app.

Unintelligible

In settings/navigation there are options for the voice navigation system however there is no option to have the app speak in the language of the region. This means that it attempts to speak French place names in mangled English to me, and I have no idea what on earth it’s trying to say half the time. This makes the app on usable. Instructions for changing the language of the app say I must do it in the web version. So I logon there and change (after a lot of mucking around, since it keeps referring me back to this app Without asking me!) my language to French, which is a bit inconvenient since I don’t want searchResults in French, but it’s worth a try. However this doesn’t change the app it seems.
