What's New in Version 4.36.1
Thanks for using Google Maps! This release brings the “Measure distance” feature that lets you measure distances between pins dropped on the map (hold a point on the map to drop a pin). In addition we bring bug fixes that improve our product to help you discover new places and navigate to them.
Latest update removed traffic on by default
If you use this app for traffic DO NOT UPDATE. Traffic previously was on by default, that is no longer the case, and there is no way to change it. Every time you want to check the traffic, you have to go into the layers and now turn traffic back on. Close the app, and then come back in, guess what, traffic is gone again! After about the 3rd time of, "why is there traffic, my app said there was no traffic?!" Oh... pos turned turned traffic off with the update. Rip. App is usually 5 stars. Latest update made it infuriating. Fix traffic on by default, or let us manually turn traffic on and leave it on, and you'll go back to 5 stars.
Thanks for the reply. Back to 5 stars.
Fix traffic problem
Update: After my poor review comprising about the traffic toggling off all the time, the developers fixed this feature and replied to my review. Google maps is better again, and I appreciate the quick developer response. I use the app every day to plan my commute and am happy that it works great again!
Original Review: I agree with other reviewers. It used to be that once turned on, traffic showed up every time you started the app. Now you have to turn it on each time. Very frustrating! I may switch to a different map app if this is not fixed soon. I rely on the traffic maps to plan my commute, and toggling traffic on is difficult in the car.
EDITED- No more traffic default?!? WHY???
Edit: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for bringing the default traffic layer back!!!! 5 stars again 🙌🏼 I love you. Seriously.
I've been a loyal Google Maps user for years. It's the best map for traffic out there, until recently. With whatever update, you guys removed the default to traffic option. We now have to toggle traffic on each time we open the app 😖 Since I'd think most people use your app FOR ACTUAL TRAFFIC when commuting or directions...this change is a huge misstep. It's one thing to take it away, then have an option to turn it on in settings...but that's not even there. Please change it back or give us an option. Thank you!
