Almost useless on IPad Pro 10.5
Update. Two bug fixes since my review and problem still persists. Good news is it's a free app.
Street view takes forever to load on the new IPad Pro 10.5, when it works at all. When it does work; about 1/2 the time, going back to the map view either crashes the app or more commonly, causes the app to freeze forcing me to force close the app and try again. Street view is pretty much the only reason to even use Google Maps over the built in Apple Maps application. This doesn't happen on my iPhone 7 or my iPad Air 2 or my wife's release edition IPad Pro 12.9 so it's got to be some kind of incompatibility with the new Pros. This needs to be fixed if it's too be at all useful.
Street View new navigation concept flawed, also major SV bug on iPad
Hate the new navigation of street view. I constantly end up moving when I'm trying to pan/scroll around to view, and I usually don't ever want to have my view auto drift to the direction of travel while moving. Usually we want to remain looking sideways or behind while traveling.
Also, new recent bug only on iPad—the app locks on a white screen when I enter street view. Access to street view is restored when I close and reopen the app. But when I leave street view, the app locks again on the map screen until I exit and return to the app.
