Great, but flawed

Norway772

So without question google maps is one of my most used apps. Very early on I decided it was far better than Apple’s maps app (maybe I should go back and try that because I haven’t used it for years). Anyway, the pluses are many, but there is one thing that drives me so insane that I rank this app a 3 instead of a 5, that one thing is extremely untimely short freeze ups. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in a situation where I need the app the run normally in order to get the info I need in time to make a correct turn and the app will pause/freeze for a few seconds. It’s almost is if it knows what’s going on and is playing a cruel trick on me. Just today I had put in my destination, had the route, and was on my way. A while later I saw an exit sign and thought that could be my exit. I pulled the app back up to check and.......... my blue GPS marker had me about 2 miles off the highway in the middle of no where just sitting still. So I wait, I’m getting closer and closer to the exit, I wait and wait, slow down a little, and wait, and there goes the exit, and finally it shows yes that was the exit. Almost broke my new iPhone X. And that exact thing has happened on multiple occasions with multiple phones. I’m going to see if any other ratings mention this.

Better than iOS Maps

I guess I didn't even realize the difference between this and the native apple map. I switched to iPhone last year and was used to pressing a map link and it opened right up in maps. Well, apple does that too...but when I needed it badly I had to come download google maps. I was stuck in a delivery parking lot of a huge hospital in an unfamiliar city that apparently had one address for the whole campus. Apple's map made me almost lose my mind- "Turn right then turn right! Go southwest then immediately go north then turn right! Turn left then turn right!"
It was insanity.
I finally broke down and googled what I needed which prompted me to download Google Maps...And I was immediately given correct directions and found my medical office in less than 5 minutes. Now every time I need directions I find Google Maps is the only one that's accurate.
4 stars because it turns me sideways sometimes and did have me turn right off of an exit just to make an immediate u-turn when it should have just told me to turn left from the jump. Still- it gets me there which is what I ultimately care about.

My favorite map app

Th first time iOS maps sent me to the wrong place, way out in the country somewhere, I couldn’t believe Apple had messed up. I sent Apple a message about what was wrong and expected them to fix it. Four times in six months I reminded them that they were wrong. Then they sent me a message that they had fixed the problem. I checked, they hadn’t. What I love best about Google maps is they tell you what lane to be in for the up coming turn. I don’t like that they only give you a two mile warning about your exit on the freeway/highway. If you’re in the wrong lane at 75 mph in heavy traffic, that’s not enough warning. iOS maps gives you more miles to play with, but that’s my only complaint so far. And they do show you an arrow so you can see which way you’ll be going, but I can’t see any of it with my sunglasses on. To keep slipping them down so I can see what’s coming and how soon while driving is both a pain and not safe. I wish they’d offer more info starting with 10 miles, then 5, then 2 or something...and do it verbally so I don’t have to play with my sunglasses or look down.
