How Can You Not Love This?
I have gotten to the point where despite having a built-in GPS in my car, I use this app more than half the time because it is so incredibly accurate. With the downloadable maps, it greatly eases demand on your data limits and frees you up to use it more frequently. The voice speaks clearly and at a good tempo, and you are given a heads up – and a automatic re-routing – when you run into traffic. If that weren't enough, it gives you a Welcome greeting every time you cross a state line. Even if you don't love this app, you should have it as a backup as you will find it useful at some point when your other resources have failed you. Highly recommend.
Love this app but...
I use this app just about everywhere I go whether I'm taking the train, driving by car or riding my bike. It really gets you where you want to go but recently I've been working with commercial vehicles and I see that it doesn't have an option for routes for these vehicles.
I really think google maps should work out an option to say whether you are commuting via regular commute or commercial commute that way you know which parkways to stay off of with a commercial vehicle if you were driving via that kind of transportation.
I hope Google maps see this and can work to provide this option. Thank you
This app does what gps is supposed to do. It's great when you're driving in your car and need direction hands-free. However. If your looking up a route before hand, which many people frequently do, the map auto-adjusts for you. This would be fine, if it didn't adjust the direction and size of the map. No mater how I touch the screen, with how many fingers or how much pressure, it goes back to the original state. It's extremely confusing and frustrating. If I'm looking at a route I'm about to travel I google maps, I'd rather not use google maps.
