Very good, just some volume frustration

4rmz94

Hey, I must say this is a very good free app, it has improved greatly over the last 5 years and I certainly have come to prefer pretty much all aspects of it over iOS maps, only issue is that the music and navigation volumes are not independent. I ride a motorbike so I must use headphones for navigation, usually I do not like to have my music volume too high as I would like to be able to hear if there are hazards approaching (alerting only by their sound, e.g. Fire truck), but when the navigation voice over comes on, the volume is too low, sometimes I end up making the wrong turn, so I turn on the volume during the turn-for-turn notification, and google maps is then at an adequate level but this changing of the volume affects the music playing in the background, and suddenly when that round of google maps instruction is done, the music is blazing in my ears. Why are these two volumes attached, please could you make it separate, as the directions are essentially in app notifications, why don't you attach google maps volume to the ringer volume instead of the music volume, this would've much more convenient, or give it its own separate volume adjuster so that adjusting voice volume doesn't adjust music volume, thank you.

WORSENED consistently after each update!!

This is one app that actually got WORSE after every update. Some good features removed, other new features that aren't very practical added in. But aside from that it's been very buggy, crashes, layout is extremely poor, usability is also extremely poor! Constant updates and revamps and tweaks making it inconsistent. Functionality and form thrown out the window. Street view is an embarrassment and not accurate. The 1 star rating is given only because on some occasions, it does get me from A to B. Rerouting is now just messed up, estimation time and the direction of the arrow is laughable. Before you can use this app without having to specifically navigate somewhere- you can roam around and your maps will follow regardless - why was this feature removed?? Sometimes I need to know the surrounding places for parking or locating other stuff! Free roaming was one of the reason why I used GMaps over TomTom which does allow free roaming but not as good. And lastly, does offline mode actually work?!! I've downloaded all relevant maps and would use the phone on airplane mode, get it forces me to connect to mobile data?! Still struggle why this app uses data rather than GPS. Just overall poor hate it now!

Amazing app but

There is no doubt in my mind that when it comes to navigation apps, the mapping by google maps is way ahead of the competition however a couple of things I feel let the app down and make it feel out of date when comparing to the app to its competitors. Speed limits, with both Waze and Apple maps showing speed limits I feel this is a very useful feature that google maps is missing. The second feature I feel that is missing is when in comes to navigating roundabouts. Again when using waze or Apple maps you get a text indication showing which exit to take where as with google maps you will only get this indication verbally. Despite these two flaws, google maps is my go to navigation app and I do believe that the actually accuracy of the turn by turn navigation is 100x better than the competition and it’s this reason why google maps gets my vote
