Powerful, Smart, Sexy (maybe a bit far) but YES
I get all the tools I need in one cool little package. Google Maps is super reliable and ETA times are like spot on. I like that it integrates so well into Gmail too. I can be looking for the address of the hotel I’m staying at and Google Maps will let me know what dates I’ll be there right on screen without having to poke through back into Gmail. It’s not just commuting by car that’s made easier but also city transit. Recently, I headed up to NYC and I would have never made it back home without Google Maps. It knew exactly what trains to catch, when they’d be there (everybody says NY trains are always off schedule but not really), and what station to pile into. Apple Maps worked well too and tbh bc it’s a built in iPhone app or maybe it is just coded to use less energy I do find Apple Maps doesn’t take as much battery life for sacrifice. That said I even like the available widgets you can add to iPhone. I personally use the “arrival time” widget bc I’m lazy and don’t want to roll out of bed until the last minute for work or class. So far so good. I do also like me some Street View + Google Maps is overall accurate. I ask that since it is a CarPlay compatible app now that we get access to a better schematic though because it looks more cluttered than Apple Maps. Apple Maps is my default go-to but it’s worth having Google Maps too.
This app does an above-average job at assisting in navigation. I like that it apparently integrates user movement over time; for example, when I moved to my house, it ignored a pedestrian footpath to the other half of my street, but it now no longer routes me two miles away when I’m going to the bus. The reason I don’t give it five stars is its integration with Lyft/Uber, because my pocket would open the links and sometimes nearly summon a car (I had to delete them to avoid being charged), and because of transit system shortcomings. GMaps doesn’t offer enough different choices for routes, sometimes missing obvious bus lines or transfers, sometimes only giving one option it thinks best, though I might know more info and want to prompt more choices, which isn’t possible. I a forced to enter fake destination or origin information to force other routes to display. One bus may be very crowded at certain times, one route may have a steep hill. It needs to offer a way to expand route choices. Also, I still need to use OneBusAway to check on arrival times, as GMaps is not always current, especially with detours and alterations. As for driving, it’s fine, except the way it ignores neighborhood shortcuts and alternatives. Overall, a good tool to assist you, but you need your own knowledge to make it truly effective. Therefore, 3.5 stars, which I weighted up to 4.
Best gps app
I have been using google maps since 2011. I never write reviews but this app has surpassed my expectations. I have tried waze, ios maps and they dont do it for me. I am a truck driver by trade and aside from truck route maps on a desktop, i always use google maps. Will google maps ever be perfect? No but we are talking about perfect cellphone service and non hesitant location tracking to have a perfect gps. Depending where you are and who your carrier is, your cell reception might be shakily and you might miss a turn, not the app’s fault. Once google introduced the option for additional stops with in your route, they locked in my loyalty to the app. The reason why i wrote this review today is a new option that i have long awaited. Since i drive for miles, i am always on the app. I also am always listening to music. Of course i have had many times where i missed that very important turn because i was skipping or searching for a new song. Not anymore, maps now has a very simple tab on the map that lets me skip my song with my maps still on the screen. Thats a game changer for me. Once again, google has made me a pleased customer. Great work.
